Overview

Book
From the staggeringly fast pace of Las Vegas to the tranquillity of the Zion National Park, this trip journeys through some of the most incredible natural formations on the west coast. Walk amid the hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, stand in awe at the Grand Canyon, sit by a Navajo campfire in Monument Valley and enjoy the stark desert backdrop of Joshua Tree National Park. Finish this desert-flavoured adventure in style with a day and a night in Los Angeles, where you can grab a much-deserved coffee at the Original Farmers Market and wander the Santa Monica Pier for a dose of sea and eccentricity.

Highlights

    • From flashy Las Vegas to the red cliffs of Zion National Park and the distinctive hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, discover a huge diversity of American landscapes in a relatively short amount of time
    • Discover the Emerald Pools, an oasis of lush vegetation and cascading falls, during a hike in Utah’s Zion National Park
    • Due to popular demand, see the mountains, cactus gardens and lush oases of Joshua Tree National Park. As you'll be staying nearby, there's plenty of time to explore the area without feeling rushed
    • Finish up in a city that’s home to dreamers, fortune seekers, and celebrities – Los Angeles
    • Discover Utah's iconic Monument Valley by jeep and then share stories and a meal by the campfire with members of Navajo Nation
    • Be left speechless by the rivers, steep red-rock escarpments and, of course, the eponymous gorge of the Grand Canyon National Park. Don’t worry if you’re too stunned to do anything but stare at first –you’ve got two days here so there's enough time to explore properly

After traveling with them in South America and the USA I am sold on smaller group travel. I have enjoyed more interaction with others and the flexibility a smaller group offers

This tour was awesome. It was pretty accurately described in the brochure...would tend to say the physical rating should be higher as a lot of the activities were hiking in the national parks which involve steep hills which was not always suitable for all parties in our group. Ashley, our tour leader was great, her enthusiasm for the national parks and the local environments was infectious and really completed the tour for us. The accommodation was very good except for the location of the LA hotel which was a fair bit out of town and restricted what we could do on the night we were there. The overall time in LA felt somewhat rushed...if you want to cover LA in any detail, might be best to pause the tour for a couple of days then take the trip up the coast. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in the national parks and bookending their tour in Vegas / San Fran...as is usual with them ...best to have a couple of extra days at the start and end to enjoy those cities as the tours tend to not cover them in any great detail.

Definitely book a couple of extra days in San Francisco. The weather was extremely hot in June so avoid mid summer to enjoy to hiking. I would also think that to get the most out of the trip it should be rated as physical level 3 (for over 60s anyway)

We really loved the National Parks Explorer trip. It gave us the opportunity to cover big distances without the hassle of driving. We loved seeing so many parks each of which were unique and wonderful.

A wide variety of landscapes and experiences requiring a good level of fitness. Be prepared for some long travel times and weather extremes.

I came to them because I thought it would be an easy way to plan a trip to an unfamiliar country with an unfamiliar language; what I got was a whole new perspective on travel. The small group, the local leader, the local transportation, the off-the-map food and lodging, the connection with people along the way--there's a richness to this kind of travel that is different from traveling on your own.
