Pacific Coast Adventure (AQ)

9 Day Tour from Seattle to San Francisco

2022 Tour Details View 2021 Tour Details »

Set your sights higher than the Space Needle and the redwoods for lush green forests, cascading waterfalls, and ice-smothered volcanoes are just the opening scenes of this west side story. From Seattle to Portland and all the way to the Golden Gate of San Francisco, the dramatic views of both city and seaside astound on this nine-day Pacific Coast vacation. While Oregon’s fabled lighthouses cast their beams to reveal the wonder of the West, your native Tour Director will shed light on what makes this corner of the country so uniquely spectacular – from its perfect pinot noirs to its fresh catches of the day. If the Seattle coffee scene doesn’t wake you up, a dune buggy ride along the Oregon coast, a jet boat ride across the wild Rogue River, and a journey down Redwood National Park’s Avenue of Giants certainly will.

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.


Escorting tours for more than 10 years

The Western United States' national parks have some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, and provide experiences and memories that last a lifetime. Where else can you see wild animals roam free among natural wonders and stunning canyons? It's my great honor to introduce travelers to these beautiful places as I tell the little-known facts and stories that bring each destination to life.
