This National Parks tour begins in Los Angeles and ends in San Francisco with overnights along the way in Lake Havasu, Grand Canyon National Park, Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon National Park, Las Vegas, Mammoth Lakes, and Yosemite National Park.

Tour highlights include time spent in stunning Grand Canyon National Park, where you can enjoy a majestic sunset; Bryce Canyon National Park, where years of erosion have carved colorful sandstone into thousands of spires, arches, and mazes; Zion National Park, with massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky; and Yosemite National Park, with its cascading waterfalls, mountain peaks, ice-sculpted domes, lush forests, and meadows. You’ll also spend time in Lake Powell, where you’ll enjoy a cruise.

On this National Parks tour, Globus has also arranged some out-of-the-ordinary adventures for you. In Lake Powell, explore Antelope Slot Canyon with a local Navajo guide. Stand in awe as you witness and photograph this slot canyon created by erosion from rain and water. Another fun experience is a visit to San Francisco’s Japanese Tea Garden, where you’ll hear about the park and have time to explore its five acres.

From the exciting cities to the amazing scenery and from the desert landscapes to the sparkling lakes, this National Parks tour has it all. Grab your camera and get ready for a remarkable vacation!

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

After more than two decades in the industry, I've been fortunate to see all aspects of touring by coach. My experiences as a tour director have proven to be my most rewarding in terms of a career. I particularly enjoy showing off America's treasures in our National Parks. I'd love to share our wonderful national parks and help you "find your park" as we travel this great land. When I am not guiding, I enjoy sports and spending time with my friends and family.
