Southern California Charms with Death Valley National Park
tour: AD1 12 days from Los Angeles to Los Angeles
What do Californians do when they need a quick, quiet getaway? They pack their loudest plaids for Palm Springs and their fluffiest towels for Santa Barbara. This laid-back tour of Southern California explores these popular Golden State getaways and more, getting you closer to the sunny stretches of coastline, the golden age of Hollywood, and the smaller towns that truly shine. Visit the 18th-century mission in San Juan Capistrano, tour the Rat Pack’s mid-century modern homes in Palm Springs, and taste today’s perfectly aged reds and whites in the picturesque wine regions of Temecula and Paso Robles (featured in the cult classic wine movie Sideways). You’ll also feel the wind in your hair on a Jeep tour through Joshua Tree National Park, the sand in your toes along San Diego’s 70 miles of beaches, and your inner movie star emerge as you strut down Rodeo Drive. If you want to be seen at the hottest spots in Southern California, you’ll want to add Death Valley National Park to your Southern California vacation. With departures in November, you’ll enjoy cooler temperatures, the coolest desert scenery, and if you’re lucky, the annual Monarch butterfly migration. With guided sightseeing and evening skygazing, stellar views are a given on this tour of Death Valley.

Being a Tour Director has afforded me the opportunity to travel more than I would have ever dreamed.

Come with me on tour and I will show you the unique beauty, ethnic diversity, tempting local cuisine, and, hopefully, help you spot a celebrity or two!
