Day 1 London - Los Angeles - San Diego
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to London Heathrow Airport for a direct, scheduled Virgin Atlantic flight to Los Angeles. On arrival, we transfer to San Diego and the Omni San Diego (4T), where we have a welcome drink.
Day 2 San Diego
This morning we are joined by our knowledgeable local guide who will take us on a tour of this contemporary city introducing the downtown area, including the historic Old Town. This afternoon and evening you are free to explore.
Day 3 San Diego - Scottsdale
Leaving San Diego behind us, we travel towards Scottsdale in Arizona and the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa (4T) or Hilton Mesa (4T) for one night.
Day 4 Scottsdale - Sedona - Oak Creek Canyon - Grand Canyon
Today we pass through the vast Colorado Plateau and the pertinently named ‘Red Rock Country’ - the city of Sedona - surrounded by massive red-rock monoliths and the breathtaking chasm at stunning Oak Creek Canyon. The awe-inspiring natural sights continue as we reach the Grand Canyon, carved out by the Colorado River. At 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and 1 mile deep, it is the most impressive gorge in the world. Perhaps enjoy a pre-bookable optional flight for stunning views of the Grand Canyon. Our day concludes with an overnight stay in lodge-style accommodation (4T), right in the Park.

Crossing the state border from Arizona into Nevada we continue to America’s entertainment capital - Las Vegas - in the heart of the sparsely populated Mojave Desert. Our base for the next two nights is the luxurious Cosmopolitan Hotel (4T).
Day 6 Hoover Dam
We visit the Hoover Dam, a spectacular engineering feat built in the 1930s. This huge dam created Lake Mead, 100 miles long and 500 feet deep - a truly remarkable sight. The remainder of the day is at leisure to soak up the atmosphere of this incredibly glitzy and fabled fun city from our perfectly-located hotel. Take advantage of the fabulous bus service that runs the length of The Strip to make the most of your stay here.
Day 7 Las Vegas - Mammoth
Today we leave the fast pace and glamorous life of Las Vegas behind and cross the forbidding Mojave Desert - a sharp contrast, as we head towards Mammoth. Once a gold mining town and popular retreat for Hollywood stars this alpine resort town is surrounded by awe-inspiring natural beauty. Our hotel this evening is the Sierra Nevada Lodge (4T).
Day 8 Mammoth - Yosemite National Park
Spend the day exploring the valley floor of UNESCO-listed Yosemite National Park, observing the crystal-clear lakes, soaring mountains and lush forests including the towering giant Sequoia trees.
