2023 Season

Southern California Charms


tour: AD 10 days from Los Angeles to Los Angeles
What do Californians do when they need a quick, quiet getaway? They pack their loudest plaids for Palm Springs and their fluffiest towels for Santa Barbara. This laid back tour of Southern California explores these popular Golden State getaways and more, getting you closer to the sunny stretches of coastline, the golden age of Hollywood, and the smaller towns that truly shine. Visit the 18th-century mission in San Juan Capistrano, tour the Rat Pack’s mid-century modern homes in Palm Springs, and taste today’s perfectly aged reds and whites in the picturesque wine regions of Temecula and Paso Robles (featured in the cult classic wine movie Sideways). You’ll also feel the wind in your hair on a Jeep tour through Joshua Tree National Park, the sand in your toes along San Diego’s 70 miles of beaches, and your inner movie star emerge as you strut down Rodeo Drive.
Select Globus 2021 North America tours are limited to an average of just 24 guests per tour. There’s always room to roam with extra space between you and other travelers—while still getting up close and personal to the experiences you’ve been dreaming of.

Escorting tours for more than 20 years
Being a Tour Director has afforded me the opportunity to travel more than I would have ever dreamed. During my many years as a Tour Director, I have had the opportunity to lead tours in Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and the Western U.S. I am extremely proud of my home state of California. Come with me on tour and I will show you the unique beauty, ethnic diversity, tempting local cuisine, and, hopefully, help you spot a celebrity or two!
