On the LA to the Bay tour in April 2013 i did all of the following optionals in the list:
-SeaWorld, San Diego
-San Diego Harbour Cruise (which was actually drive your own mini jet boats!)
-Helicopter Flights over the Grand Canyon
-Sedona Jeep Tours
-Las Vegas Cabaret Show
-Sunset Sailing on San Francisco Bay
-Hot Air Ballooning, Phoenix
i can honestly say all were 2 thumbs up and i would recommend to do all of them! the reason i didnt do the IMAX was because it was the same time as the helicopter flights over the canyon (which you CANNONT miss!) also didnt got to San Diego Zoo because it was the same day we went to Sea World so it was impossible for me to do both which is really annoying planning wise i think Contiki should give the opportunity to do both (maybe spread over two days). Chinatown Dinner was missed as well – we got to San Fran in the afternoon and that was the same time we did the Harbour Cruise, the dinner was set for the next night but our tour ended that morning which again was really poor planning on Contiki’s part because it was listed as an optional on our tour even though technically it was only available for the on-going tour who were spending another night in San Fran. Only thing else to add is bring a jacket or 3 with you on the san fran harbour cruise! it was so friggen cold on the harbour and we just stayed huddled inside the cabin as outside was unbareable!
Hope this helps convince you to take advantage of all the awesome optionals on offer – have fun!
It is true that people have different preferences on what to do on holiday. It is nice that you provide the list for us to choose from. I love it, I think my family will love it as well. Thanks!
This is a great advantage that this travel company has over its competitors – they let their clients choose their own itinerary. It’s like giving them the remote control and getting all the things they want. This is how the company gives value to the money of their clients and that is why more are coming back.
presentation however I to find this matter to be really one thing which I think I would
by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely huge for me.
I’m having a look ahead on your next post, I will try to get the grasp of it!http://betpressrelease.com |
I am very much interested in going to Sea World in San Diego because I have three kids who are very fascinated with creatures from the sea. Our relatives are also based in this area so they should be able to accompany us throughout this tour. I have seen a lot of affordable packages here too.
Having the opportunity to make adjustments to your itinerary is a great value for customers. I think you made a great move that will help build up your growing number of clients. This is the reason why I will continue to support your business.
Will you give your customers a chance to make their own itinerary and then price it accordingly? It will be like creating your customized plan for a mobile phone, only this time it is for the places you will be visiting. I think this is what people would most appreciate.
Nice read. I think a post like this would be helpful for people who love to research.
Could you please give me a detailed catalog that will describe what each location is all about and the rates? I am planning to go here next summer and I would like to make arrangements as early as today. Can you recommend a packaged tour for us?
I like it when you are part of a packaged tour but one thing I don’t like about is that I feel quite restricted. I always have to be on time and I am not able to spend a little time on places that I want. I hope there would be tours that have flexible time.
You can visit a lot more places if you have a preset itinerary that you yourself have chosen. As for me, I like to feel free wherever I go and that is why I try not to join group tours. It is too restricting for me.
It is a good thing that they are allowing people to make their own choices when it comes to their itinerary. I have been to an out-of-town trip and I really was disappointed when there was already an itinerary that I am not in favor of. It was more of a stressful experience than a delightful one.
How long did it take a sailing ship to travel from England to North America in the 18th century? Regards,
I do believe that travelers should have the freedom to choose their itinerary. This will allow them to manage their time better and give them a chance to visit the places they really are interested in. It also gives the best value for their money.
I would love the travel like this on the boat. I have always seen this kind of boats in the movies but never able to get a ride on them. Hope to get a ride in my next vacations.

Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won’t fail me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, but I truly believed you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you can fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
Is it possible to do all the optional extras or is it just too much? Especially in things luke LA Explorer, where there’s already some included then there’s things like the theme parks that can take all day
