The Grand Canyon trip was over rated and very expensive. We would not pay $221 per person had we known it was just a mere 20 min helicopter ride. What a waste of money. Those who flew from Las Vegas previously had a better deal with lunch provided. Some hotels were not as good as others. The Carlton hotel in San Francisco had no air conditioning in the lobby. It was very hot. The driver and the tour director were excellent.

Got the lot - deserts / mountains & sea. Lots to see with some major bucket list locations included - Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Golden Gate to name 3. Lots of add ons to pick & choose from. Fantastic tour guide & drivers with both knowledge & humour. Helped to make a tour into an experience not to be missed. Made some great friends & memories forever I'd do it all again tomorrow!

Can't fault anything really. The service from Cosmos was good, I was kept informed all along the line and documents etc were received when I was told they would be. The Western Wonders tour was exactly what I thought it would be, and exactly what I wanted it to be. Not enamoured with Las Vegas but that is my own view, could have done with more time in Yosemite as there was so many walks I could have done. Alcatraz not to be missed! Overall a great experience and one I'm glad I chose.

Great tour, except one of the days was just a travel day and quite boring though the guide did her best to keep us amused.

Total meals included:

  • 2 breakfasts

UK - Los Angeles


Fly to Los Angeles where you will transfer to your hotel for two nights.

Your tour starts today.

Los Angeles


Begin the day with a sightseeing tour of the world’s “Capital of Glamour,” including a drive through Hollywood and the famous TCL Chinese Theatre. The remainder of your day is at leisure, and your tour director will have suggestions for your further exploration of the city. Stroll down Olvera Street or the heart of the original Spanish Mission.

Los Angeles - Palm Springs


Journey to the desert oasis of Palm Springs, just 120 miles east of Los Angeles. Ever since Hollywood stars first came here in the 1930s, laying claim to ranch-style estates and holing up in elite hotels, the clean, dry air and sunshine have made Palm Springs irresistible.

Palm Springs - Scottsdale


Travel through cacti-covered desert toward Old Town Scottsdale, where Western storefronts create an aura of the past. Afterward, enjoy free time to explore a taste of the Old West, with restaurants, shopping, and Western bars. With wooden beams, wagon wheels, and cowboy hats abundant, you’ll feel like you’ve travelled back in time to the era of outlaws and saloons.

Scottsdale - Sedona - Oak Creek Canyon - Grand Canyon - Williams


Travel to Sedona, a thriving centre for New Age arts set in Canyon Country. On to the weather-sculptured rock formations of Oak Creek Canyon. Travel alongside the San Francisco Mountains and beautiful pine forests to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Time to stroll the canyon rim—or, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, take an optional helicopter flightseeing excursion for incomparable views of flame-coloured walls plunging 7,000 feet into the Colorado River. Overnight in Williams, a picturesque mountain town with Route 66 as the Main Street and the gateway to the Grand Canyon.

Williams - Las Vegas


Cross the old Mojave gold-strike country, which still has traces of century-old ghost towns set in natural desert beauty. Watch for Joshua trees, a species of the lily family that grows to more than 40 feet in height and can live up to 300 years. By late afternoon, reach Las Vegas, the fantastic city of feverish gambling, neon lights, bars, and glamorous shows. Be sure to explore some of the many themed casino resorts along the colourful “Strip.” This evening, we highly recommend a night out to a dazzling stage show featuring top Vegas entertainment.

Las Vegas


The day is free to swim and sunbathe at the hotel pool or to explore the varied casinos and shopping plazas. Your tour director will have more suggestions. Consider a river float trip through the Black Canyon.

Las Vegas - Tulare


Departing the neon lights of Las Vegas, we continue across the desert landscape of Nevada before crossing into California. You’ll see the vast Mojave Desert, which covers one-fifth of California. Pass through the agricultural land and overnight in Tulare in the central San Joaquin Valley.

Tulare - Yosemite National Park - Modesto


This morning, we enter Yosemite National Park, a wonderland of spectacular lakes, giant granite domes, towering pinnacles, cascading waterfalls, and lush forests. Afterward, drive to Modesto.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast

Modesto – Sausalito - San Francisco


This morning, we continue west to the “Golden Gate City” of San Francisco, famous for its cable cars. Lunch in the pristine waterfront community of Sausalito. Free time to explore this quaint, Mediterranean-style village’s shops, galleries, and breath taking views. Afterward, included sightseeing takes in the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast

San Francisco


The day is free for you to explore more of this fascinating city. Perhaps visit the notorious former prison of Alcatraz, which housed famous gangsters such as Al Capone, “Machine Gun” Kelly, and Robert “The Birdman” Stroud. Afterward, the day is yours to do some more exploring in the “City by the Bay.” NOTE: Consider advance ticket purchase for Alcatraz Island with the National Park Service.
