TOUR COAST TO COAST STATI UNITI DA NEW YORK A SAN FRANCISCO - 22 Giorni

USA-COAST-TO-COAST-coi-bambini-il-nostro-VIAGGIO-in-CAMPER-negli-Stati-Uniti

Questo tour è pensato per un piccolo gruppo max 13 persone provenienti da tutto il mondo che amano la lingua inglese, parlarla, ascoltarla, viverla, che hanno l’entusiasmo di viaggiare insieme e assaporare il contatto diretto con la natura quando sono previsti pernottamenti in campeggio. Un’esperta guida madrelingua americana farà conoscere alcune città simbolo della sua patria e porterà a visitare spettacolari parchi naturali della nazione a stelle e strisce, ma non mancano momenti liberi da personalizzare e gestire in autonomia, fare ciò che più piace e magari praticare ulteriormente l’inglese. Let’s go and have fun!

You might prefer to hire a bike and explore Yosemite Valley. Visit the park’s museum, photo gallery, shops and restaurants along the way.

Day 22
SAN FRANCISCO

Leave Yosemite behind today and drive west for about four hours to San Francisco. The ‘City by the Bay’ has a beautiful setting and a vibrant, multicultural heart. You might like to check out the vintage stores along funky Haight Street, catch the tram down to the waterfront or take a cruise on the bay to see the impressive Golden Gate Bridge.

The trip finishes on arrival into San Francisco and no accommodation is provided tonight. The arrival time depends on each group, but if you decide to fly out on this day, please don’t book a flight before 9pm. This will give you enough time to catch a shuttle from the hotel to the airport and be there two hours before departure. If you are staying in town for the evening, perhaps head out for some dumplings in Chinatown or pasta in North Beach. If you do wish to spend extra time in San Francisco we’ll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).
