Detailed Itinerary

Every Summer we will have departures starting from San Francisco for the California Sun Tour on Saturday’s and Monday’s. We travel with up to 2 vans (each van seats up to 13 travelers). Once one van is full, we will open up another departure if possible! All vans are part of the same tour. They will stay at the same camp/hotel/hostel spots each night. During the day they might not always be driving together or always be doing the same things because each van group is unique. Your tour guide’s job is to make the most out of each day for your group (your van)…and every group is different. Sometimes that means sticking together, but it can also mean they don’t see each other all day until they arrive at camp.
