You could easily spend 9-days in LA, losing track of time and doing little more than eat, sleep, shop, party, repeat. If you want to make the most of your time in this region and actually see a thing or two, the Western Highlights is calling out your name. San Diego, Sonoran Desert, Phoenix, the Grand Canyon, Route 66, & Vegas will soon be clogging up your Instagram account.

DAY 1 - Arrive Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Get into the city that mixes up glamour, grit and the American Dream: Los Angeles. It’s packed with legends, full of energy and there are loads of things to do. Head to mythical Hollywood and walk across the holy ground for stars. Check out the Kodak Theatre, where the Oscars are held every year and Mann's Chinese Theatre, where so many greats have pressed their hands into the cement. Cruise down the hottest shopping street in LA, Melrose Avenue, and one of the best areas for nightlife, the Strip (Sunset Boulevard), with its billboards, clubs and eateries, before getting a glimpse at one of the world’s wealthiest suburbs in Beverly Hills. A little further west discover Santa Monica, LA’s oldest beach resort. Known for its liberal vibes, art galleries and wide sand beaches, Santa Monica is all about the California coast lifestyle. See the famous pier, which serves as a permanent amusement park, complete with a solar powered Ferris wheel. Maybe later travel out to LA’s quirkiest suburb where anything goes: Venice Beach. A favourite hang out spot for locals, colourful Venice Beach attracts all sorts of people. Get a feel for street life when you hit the buzzing broadwalk, where performers, tattoo artists, hair braiders, musicians and roller bladders gather. Make sure you check out the markets and stalls, as well as the greased-up body builders pumping iron at the famous open air gym, Muscle Beach. Later head out and hit the town's hottest bars and clubs.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See Beverly Hills
DAY 2 - Los Angeles to San Diego
Los Angeles

Next up, the O.C. – Orange County. You’ll join the crew and find yourselves cruising along the unmistakable Pacific coastline as it gloriously winds around to the super laid back locale of San Diego. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Drive through the O.C. & along the scenic Pacific Coast
Panoramic view of the city's skyline from Coronado Bridge
See downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Coronado Island & Old Town San Diego

USD $57.00
San Diego

Recline into relaxation mode and take in the laid back nature of San Diego. We'll start embodying the easygoing vibes with a visit to the eclectic mix of vibrant neighbourhoods around this city, including Balbao's Park for some Mother Nature time. Consider yourself a thrill seeker? Why not drive your very own speedboat (yes you can take the wheel) with a guide around the San Diego Harbour.  

DAY 3 - San Diego
San Diego

Today you'll go about your ways like a true Cali native with a full day of outdoor excitement. Surf, sun and 42 miles of beachside bliss will have you hanging ten like Kelly Slater in no time. For those maybe feeling a little less adventurous who'd rather get up close and personal with 4000 animals, then the famous San Diego Zoo will be a must see for you. By nightfall you'll have worked up an appetite so get ready to dig into a Mexican Feast! Margarita anyone?

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Mission Beach (weather permitting)
Go loco as you feast on traditional Mexican cuisine

DAY 4 - San Diego to Phoenix
San Diego

Now you've had a taste of living the San Diego dream, it's time to crank up the heat as we enter the desert. We say farewell to our California love and delve a little deeper inland to see what Arizona has to offer.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the Sonoran Desert
Phoenix

This impressive metropolis is situated right smack bang in the middle of the desert and is a sight you won’t forget anytime soon. Uninterrupted sunshine is expected for approximately 300 days a year, making this place a super steamy urban mirage perfect for shopping and sporting events.

DAY 5 - Phoenix to the Grand Canyon via Sedona
Phoenix
A hot air balloon ride over the "Valley of the Sun" – sounds like a bucket list kind of thing (because it is) and you have the chance to tick it off the list right here. There's a champagne breakfast provided in the deal too so try to keep breathing so you don't miss out.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Lower J on 4WD jeep tour
Hot Air Balloon
USD $180.00
Sedona
Grand Canyon

The thrill of the desert continues and the next stop will make any nature lover weak at the knees. This location is one of the world’s most recognizable natural wonders and the pride of Arizona. We'll settle in for the night at our comfy Lodge in the heart of the National Park before the great Grand Canyon reveals itself tomorrow. Take a step outside and take a peep at the endless starry skies, tomorrow will be a day to remember. 

DAY 6 - Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon

You deserve a full day out here to truly appreciate the wilderness taking in its dramatic scenery. This day will be like no other; beginning with a hike through the UNESCO World Heritage listed site, there's also the option of a bike ride, then the day will end with a spine-tingling sunset. Incredibly, there's also the option to view this wonder from the best and most thrill-seeking seat in the house – a helicopter. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Capture some incredible photos with a visit to a panoramic viewpoint
Hike along the Canyon's South Rim

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
VIP club entry
Route 66
Las Vegas
Get ready for a full-blown, non-stop assault on the senses, starting first up with the iconic Hoover Dam. This is Las Vegas - sometimes known as Sin City - a place of dreams & epic debauchery. This huge man-made entertainment precinct in the middle of the desert is all about total excess. You’ll be blinded by the bright lights and gob smacked at the thought of all that money running through more than 75 massive casinos. A nighttime tour of the famous ‘Strip’, including  a stop for pics at the legendary Vegas sign will show you just what is on offer after dark in this absolutely outrageous city. Fremont Street is on tonight's agenda, where the main attraction is a super impressive light and laser show, before no doubt heading out and straight into what Vegas is all about.
DAY 8 - Las Vegas
Las Vegas

You have today all to yourself but you’ll need to run to a tight schedule to fit in all of Vegas' weird and wonderful charms. Travel the world in a day, taking in the famous Bellagio fountain, a Venetian gondola and even an Egyptian pyramid, all whilst staying firmly within the city's realm. Feeling romantic? Stop by and see one of the many Elvis impersonators for a shotgun wedding ceremony, and maybe even get hitched yourself...(joking). Tonight live like a baller while you cruise along the 'Strip' in a party bus and don't stress, the bills on us. Later, you’ll witness the 24-hour party scene first hand when you head out for a night with the crew.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Go wild in Vegas with a Party Bus
FREE TIME ADD-ONS

USD $32.00
DAY 9 - Depart Las Vegas

It’s time to say goodbye to your new friends. Many a teary hug will be had with the people you have made unforgettable memories with. What a truly once in a lifetime opportunity for adventure, and we hope you leave with an entirely new perspective on travel.

The western highlights trip was a good way to see a lot of the West coast in a short time. The trip would have been better if there was a smaller number of people on our tour. I didn't learn anyone's name because there were over 50 people on the tour and they were from other tour's also.

I wish I couldve done the 2 week trip, but this was a perfect amount of time to see 6 cities in such a short period of time. I felt so lucky to be traveling so freely without concern and wrapping up so many experiences in such a short period of time.

You will have to share a twin bed with the room mate you are meeting for the first time and you had paid around $350 US dollars for one night. Very disappointing.
