Visit the town of Carmel and enjoy some free time to stroll in town before departing to reach your hotel at the Spring Hill Suites by Marriott Oakland Airport.

A great opportunity to see most of the west coast in a limited span of time. The itinerary covers several of the must-visit sites, the hotels were not the best quality but justifies the price paid for, the tour bus was new and comfortable, the tour guides are knowledgeable and helpful. We have done extensive research before going to this trip and this tour combo is so far the best there is.

Well organized trip, fast pace, but many things to see

The trip was pleasant despite the many hours spent by bus, thanks above all to the traveling companions. What I would honestly change in the itinerary is: - the timing / choice of some sites (e.g. I would exclude the thermometer in the Dead Valley which in my opinion does not make any sense in favor of more time in Sausalito where we have been too little) - A little more time in Las Vegas (after partying in the city of vice, the departure was scheduled the next day at 6 in the morning ... too early).

It was a great experience, incredible places and wonderful people are known, there are places where there was very little time like in Monterey and Las Vegas, but the landscapes were incredible, the hotels were pleasant.
