Welcome to Las Vegas, a desert oasis of neon lights, non-stop excitement and tons of fun around every corner. Upon arrival at McCarran International Airport, transfer independently to your hotel where you will meet your ATI Tour Director. Free time this evening allows you to experience the sights and sounds of this wonderland first hand. Walk the famous Strip lined with mega-resorts, place a bet at one of the many casinos, dine at world-class restaurants, catch the latest star-studded show, or enjoy breathtaking views during a 30-minute ride on the all-new, 550-foot tall High Roller ... the world's tallest observation wheel and the most exciting attraction to hit the Strip.

Overnight - Las Vegas


Day 2
Las Vegas - Grand Canyon - Las Vegas

Today, see the Grand Canyon as it can best be seen ... from the air and ground. Your adventure begins upon boarding a private aircraft bound for Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim. Glide over the vast expanse of the Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead; and as the land rises and lake becomes river, you'll see the Colorado snaking its way through the length of the Canyon, continuing to carve out its history. Upon arrival at Grand Canyon National Park Airport you'll board a motorcoach and embark on the ground portion of the tour. Stop along the Rim at impressive outlooks whose magnificent views offer spectacular photo opportunities, enjoy a picnic lunch, take a stroll, and shop for souvenirs before hopping back on the aircraft for your return flight to Las Vegas. This evening you're invited to join your fellow travelers for a Welcome Reception.

Overnight - Los Angeles


Day 3
Las Vegas - Yosemite National Park

Your journey begins this morning with a short flight onboard a private aircraft from Las Vegas to Merced, the gateway to Yosemite National Park. Upon arrival in Merced you'll board a motorcoach and retrace the original route to Yosemite along Highway 140, the first route into the park that brought travelers directly to the valley floor along the Merced River Canyon. Once inside the park you will be introduced to some of Yosemite's most famous and awe-inspiring scenery, including Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, El Capitan, Tunnel View, and Bridalveil Falls. Postcard-perfect pictures abound so be sure to have your camera ready.

Overnight - Yosemite National Park


Day 4
Yosemite - San Francisco

Leaving the wonder of Yosemite behind, today you'll make your way west via motorcoach to Northern California's beloved City by the Bay, San Francisco. En route we visit a winery in the famed Napa Valley and you will have time to explore the quaint town of Sonoma. Considered one of the greatest cities in the world for many reasons, San Francisco's 49 square miles of distinctive terrain water on one side, hills on the other leads to spectacular views, a multitude of ethnically diverse neighborhoods and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Overnight - San Francisco


Day 5
San Francisco

This morning, a comprehensive city tour provides a fun and exciting way to get an overview of the city and enables you to truly appreciate many of San Francisco's most famous sights, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Union Square, and Fisherman's Wharf. And, as no visit would be complete without taking a cruise on the Bay, you'll set sail, passing the famous PIER 39 sea lions while making your way along the historic waterfront which reveals the city's spectacular skyline. Be sure to take full advantage of prime photo opportunities with unobstructed views in every direction as you glide under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and circle the notorious Alcatraz Island. The remainder of the day is yours to explore the city's amazing sights, scenes, and neighborhoods at your leisure. Ever ride a national landmark? Then consider hopping on one of San Francisco's historic cable cars. And for an extra thrill, hang off the running board, Doris Day-style.

Overnight - San Francisco


Day 6
San Francisco - 17-Mile Drive - Monterey - California's Central Coast

Heading south this morning via motorcoach you'll embark on an exhilarating journey along one of the most scenic roads in the world, 17-Mile Drive. Hugging the Pacific coastline while passing emerald green fairways and stunning estates, this coastal landmark runs through Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach. Afterward, take in the sights, sounds and smells of Monterey at Old Fisherman's Wharf in downtown and explore Cannery Row's historic waterfront district, John Steinbeck's inspiration for his novel of the same name. Continuing south, Pacific Coast Highway's twisting, cliff-hugging route takes you through the quaint village of Carmel-by-the-Sea and Big Sur where mountains plunge into the Pacific Ocean. Further south, the landscape mellows to oak-studded hills as the highway passes Hearst Castle and Morro Bay. From here, a short distance inland is San Luis Obispo and the heart of California's Central Coast.
