Globus California Classics with San Diego(AAE)

13 Day Tour from San Francisco to San Diego 
When you hum along to California Dreamin’ on the radio, what wistful wonders comes to mind? Giant sequoias in Yosemite National Park? Big reds in Napa Valley? Mega stars in Los Angeles? Colossal mansions that dot the entire Pacific coastline? From the City by the Bay to the City of Angels, this ten-day tour of California reveals every heavenly sight that earned the Golden State its name. Yosemite’s Cathedral Spires, 17-Mile Drive’s Lone Cypress, and San Simeon’s Hearst Castle are just a few you’ll want your camera ready for. Between the high energy of Silicon Valley and the high style of Beverly Hills, this encompassing California vacation weaves in plenty of kickback time with visits to a Napa Valley vineyard, the quiet Danish village of Solvang, and the tony resort zip codes of Monterey, Carmel, and Santa Barbara. Don’t forget your shades.

Surf’s up at the 70 miles of beaches along Southern California’s most laidback city. Hang ten or simply hang out in San Diego’s renowned zoo, museums, and eclectic neighborhoods. Half the fun of this extension to your California vacation is the scenic train ride here from La-La Land.
