Mark the start of your trip with a short tour of Hollywood and the Walk of Fame, before leaving city life behind as you travel through California to the vast cactus-prickled desert of Arizona. Take a dip in the Colorado River and spend the evening in nearby Parker. It's your first night with your new-found friends, so get that campfire roaring and the s'mores toasting.

It's time to head to America's premier national park, the epic Grand Canyon. You'll soon see why this natural wonder attracts tons of visitors each year.

To see it in all its majestic glory, head to the South Rim and watch the sunset. Trust us when we say you'll never have seen anything so beautiful!

Today you drive along a section of the original route 66 to Seligman. A town frozen in time and a great place to pick up some fab Route 66 memorabilia for your friends and family back home. Perhaps treat yourself to an ice cream at the Snow Cap Diner?! Once you've had your fill of pure Americana, next up is Las Vegas for the ultimate party pit stop! The Strip, the shows, the over the top hotels; Sin City's glitziest and hottest spots are sure to impress as you cruise the Las Vegas Boulevard on an included party bus! If heights don't scare you, head to the top of the Stratosphere to ride some of the world's highest roller coasters or take a helicopter flight down The Strip and see this neon city from the sky. It's also possible to get married in Vegas…don't worry, it's not legally binding - unless you want it to be - so live for the moment!

Leave the desert behind you and head west through the beautiful Californian countryside, eventually arriving in Yosemite National Park. Here you'll get the opportunity to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Once you hit the trails, you may be lucky enough to enjoy incredible wildlife sightings. Bear often frequent the area, and when the sun goes down, listen out for coyotes howling amidst the pines and Giant Sequoias. This is a paradise for any lover of the outdoors and whatever activities you get up to in Yosemite, you're sure to have a blast.
