Day
1

San Francisco, USA - City by the bay

Begin your trip in one of the most exciting cities in the world. The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz, gorgeous green parks & fashion forward boutiques – San Francisco has it all. When here, we love staying at Hotel Zetta, in the heart of the techy SoMa district. Take a stroll around the corner and find yourself in buzzy Union Square, home to some of the city’s most quintessential shops. With so many wonderful sights and restaurants to choose from, we know why Tony Bennett left his heart behind. You’ll probably leave yours too.

Napa Valley, USA - Grape Valley

From the hilly streets of San Francisco, head off into the sunset and live out the American Dream as you pick up a convertible and drive the scenic route up to California’s wine country. The sommeliers here are some of the world’s finest and can teach you all there is to know about your favourite bottles – and introduce you to some new ones. In between days on the vineyards, you’ll undoubtedly fall in love with Calistoga Ranch, an idyllic base to rest and explore from. Tucked away between the pines, oaks and most importantly, the vineyards of Napa Valley, you’re guaranteed to leave revitalised, extremely well nourished and a budding wine expert. Cheers.

Yosemite, USA - Waterfalls & Natural Wonders

Continue taking in the stunning landscapes as you drive on to the awe-inspiring Yosemite National Park; a National Park like no other on earth. Enjoy the beauty of the winding river and cascading falls, and if you’re brave enough – go for a dip in the icy cold water of the glacier. The rocks, trees and lakes here are a real oasis of calm and we promise you’ll feel more at peace than ever before. In this area of unspoiled natural beauty, The Majestic Yosemite Hotel truly captures the spirit of the area as it showcases its fascinating history.

Good to know

    Are there any personal touches that can be added for the location?
    Absolutely. There are lots of personal touches to add – either things you've always wanted to do or perhaps things that only we'll know about and will recommend because we think you'll really like them. It's our job to find out all about your likes (and dislikes) so everything can be entirely personal and bespoke.
    How does it work and how long does it take to plan an itinerary?
    Depending on where in the world you're thinking of travelling we'll assign you a Travel Expert for that destination - although if you're not sure where to go, that's absolutely fine too. This is someone you'll deal with from the very beginning all the way to the point of returning from your time away. They are destination experts and will offer lots of advice and original insight to craft a completely bespoke itinerary including all your accommodation, experiences and private tours, guides and transfers. It's why we really like to get to know you, so we can make it entirely personal and get it right first around. But if we don't get it right, that's fine too as we'll speak or email as many times until it's perfect. We try to be as quick as we possibly can but on average we try to get you a first draft of your itinerary within 24 hours of speaking to one of our Travel Experts but it does depend on where you're travelling to and therefore the complexity of the itinerary too.
    What is due for a deposit and when do I need to pay it?
    Once ready to book we require a deposit straight away and then the full balance is required 12 weeks prior to departure. A deposit can range anywhere between 25-50% of the full cost of the itinerary. It varies depending on which country you're travelling to and therefore which suppliers we work with as they all have different deposit terms. If booking flights with us your deposit will include the cost of these flights too as we need to book those right away.
    Once I make a payment are all of the arrangements confirmed? And is it all protected?
    Yes. Once your deposit payment is made we make all the necessary reservations and confirm all arrangements with hotels and our suppliers and will send you a full receipt and confirmation document via email. For your peace of mind and to protect your money, we have Tour Operator liability insurance with ATOL and are members of ABTA, IATA and Virtuoso.
    Can you help with flights? Can I book them myself?
    Absolutely. We have access to live airline fares for nearly all the major airline so can help book flights for you. However, should you wish to book your own then that's fine too – just let us know which so we can seamlessly organise everything from the moment you land.
