“Was busy before joining the tour so really looking forward to wind down and get a well-deserved break. Starting in the hotspot of San Francisco and finishing in mind-blowing LA, with a lot of great flora and fauna in between. Our guide was knowledgeable and managed to make everything smooth. Was fortunate to join a great group of people as well.”
