hey brad I saw your youtube link to the videos of the la to the bay tour you did last year. I noticed you seemed to do most of the optional extras and was wondering which ones were the best and which ones did not impress or you could go without. Having someone's perspective who has actually done it would be fantastic! Thanks so much! Emily :)

    Yeah no worries Emily! Well as you can see by the videos in San Diego I went to the Zoo which was great, but i heard from the others that Sea World was good as well so really a personal choice there.. Also the Harbor cruise which was good after being on the bus all morning and great views of the city but really nothing exciting.. but you will have to wait for the others to get back if you don't do it by wandering the docks.. Hot Air Ballooning would have been great too but only half our group got to go as when it was our turn the wind had picked up and the pilot wouldn’t let us so be prepared for that.. don’t have to pay though if that happens.. Jeeps in Sedona was fun, you get a real cowboy that takes you out into the sticks! I recommend the Grand Canyon Helicopter ride SOOOO much! It was Breathtaking!! I did the shorter one and it was enough! Also did the bike tour at the canyon which was not hard at all, just gave you a lot more info you wouldn’t otherwise get! IMAX movie was apparently a bit boring as its far better seeing the canyon with your own eyes than on film! Vegas.. I did the V theatre.. just a fun night out watching a show like an episode Australia or Americas got Talent! Also get the group photo.. its in front of the Vegas Sign! Bass Lake/Yosemite I used as chill time during the day so I didn't actually go to the National Park.. We hired a boat that had a BBQ and cruised around the lake which was fun but i heard the Nat Park was pretty good! In San Fran I think you can book some stuff even though you finish there.. depends if your staying on there for a few days.. But I did the Bike & Roll, It was a long ride but well worth it! Also if you wanna do an Alcatraz tour I would book it now, as I missed out due to it being sold out! Contiki doesn’t book it for you! The Chinatown dinner was delicious too.. Some people went on the Culinary Tour, California Academy of Sciences & the Winery Tour but i’d say only if your really in too it as there are lots of cool things to check out in San Fran with the free time you have like riding the Cable Car.. we went at night and it was great! Ok... essay over.. hope that gives you a better insight :) Brad
