Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon arrival in San Francisco, make your own way to your hotel. Spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure. You may wish to take the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy a stroll around Pier 39 to watch sea lions basking in the sunshine.

  • This morning, pick up your rental bikes and enjoy a leisurely cycle across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Admire sweeping views of the bay with the city behind you as you head toward the small city of Sausalito. Pick up lunch or an ice cream before taking the ferry back across the bay to San Francisco. Spend the rest of the afternoon and evening exploring at your own pace. You may wish to check out the vibrant music scene in the city tonight or go for a wander in Chinatown.

  • This morning, you will have a privately guided walking tour of the Castro and the mission. Your tour includes a wander through the Castro, Liberty Hill and Mission District. There will also be the opportunity to make a short stop for ice cream. After lunch, pick up your rental car and leave the city behind, heading for Yosemite National Park. The drive to Yosemite isn't particularly scenic, but with around an hour to go, the foothills of the Sierra Nevada will come into view. Known for its ancient sequoias and tumbling waterfalls, Yosemite is the perfect place to escape and return to nature for a few days.

  • You will meet your guide in the valley floor this morning ready for a full day of privately guided hiking in the park. Tailored entirely to your own requirements, the hiking can be as adventurous or as light as you wish. Your naturalist guide will show you some of the best trails in the park, suited to your interests and preferred activity levels. They will also tell you about the history of the park as well as the wildlife, flora and fauna that inhabit it.

  • Another day of adventure in Yosemite awaits. Spend a couple of hours on a privately guided half day rock climbing tour. Your guide will show you the basics of rock climbing and you will be able to try your hand at the main activity thrill-seekers come to Yosemite for. Retreat to your cabin for your final night in Yosemite and enjoy s'mores around the campfire, telling tales of your time in Yosemite.

  • Today, you will wave goodbye to the wilderness of Yosemite and head back to San Francisco for your onward travel arrangements.
