Majestic California: The Pacific, Redwoods & Yosemite

2015 Prices From $3,284 for 8 Days - Tauck Bridges

Stories by Ken Burns Our family California travel adventure takes you from the Golden State's shining seas to national park treasures as you explore San Francisco, Yosemite National Park and the Monterey Peninsula together. Tauck takes you behind-the-scenes with filmed narratives by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan – creators of "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" – who share personal stories of the dreamers, visionaries, and unsung heroes who shaped the preservation of Yosemite. Cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge and discover "the city by the bay" from a hotel at Fisherman's Wharf. Learn a lot about the world around us under the "living roof" of the California Academy of Sciences. Go back to the Gold Rush era, then see cutting-edge energy technology for the 21st century. You'll be awed by Yosemite... and the awesome activities you'll enjoy in and around the park, including a moonlight dinner train ride in Sierra National Forest. On the Monterey Peninsula, visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and choose a walking tour of Old Monterey, a bike ride or a kayak adventure. It's all part of your family's unforgettable California travel experience from Tauck Bridges!
