Sightseeing in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco includes the must-see sights, such as a visit to Seattle’s Space Needle for spectacular views of the city and Portland’s International Rose Test Gardens, the largest rose garden in Portland.

Enjoy some of the spectacular scenery waiting in Oregon, including Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, with wind-sculpted sand dunes stretching 500 feet above sea level; the scenic Rogue River, where you’ll experience a thrilling ride through this wild and remote region via glass-enclosed jetboat; and the many majestic views and scenic lighthouses along the Oregon Coast. Portland is known for its foodie culture, and you’ll get a chance to discover it on your excursion to a local winery for a tasting and lunch and during your Portland tasting tour—a special experience offered by Globus. Another out-of-the-ordinary adventure Globus has arranged is a behind-the-scenes dinner at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

In California, view the world's tallest trees in spectacular Redwood National Park and along Avenue of the Giants, a quiet 2-lane road that winds through some of the world’s most spectacular scenery with ancient redwood trees. You’ll even have the opportunity to see a 1,800-year-old redwood!

From its vibrant cities to its spectacular scenery, this Pacific Coast tour is sure to delight all of your senses!
