California's Gold Coast

2015 Prices From $4,990 for 12 Days - Tauck World Discovery

NEW FOR 2015! The “Golden State” may refer back to the riches discovered in California in 1848, but the state’s scenic gems extend far beyond the bounds of Gold Rush Country. Tauck’s ultimate California tour is a progressive experience of the state’s coastal treasures, stretching from San Diego to San Francisco. Discover the historic beauty of its 18th-century missions, Los Angeles’ hip Farmers Market, the grace of seaside Santa Barbara, the Central Coast wine region, wildlife in Morro Bay, marine life in Monterey, and the charm of Carmel. Enjoy a champagne dinner cruise on San Diego’s Big Bay, lunch at a restaurant overlooking the Big Sur coastline, a tour of Hearst Castle, a private vineyard tour and wine tasting, and the grandeur of Yosemite. Your journey features stays at The US Grant in San Diego, The Langham Huntington Pasadena, Los Angeles, Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, The Inn at Morro Bay, InterContinental The Clement Monterey, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite, and The Westin St. Francis San Francisco on Union Square.
