Fly from UK to San Francisco
Fabulous San Francisco is known for its welcoming, laid-back vibe. Discover the Ferry Building’s popular farmer’s market, the restaurants and sea lions of Pier 39 and the eclectic shops of Union Square before making use of your San Francisco Explorer Pass, which includes a choice of three attractions. Perhaps visit the Aquarium of the Bay, the Walt Disney Family Museum or cruise the waters of San Francisco Bay and gaze at the Golden Gate Bridge.
Sip on superior quality cabernet in the sun-drenched Napa Valley, its rolling green hills carpeted in vineyards and home to over 400 boutique wineries. Taste the top notch wines and dine on gourmet cellar door food, or perhaps choose to hop on board the historic Napa Valley Wine Train for an unforgettable dining experience. The food served on board is fabulous, so be sure to come hungry!
Drive to the seaside town of Monterey, where the beautiful coastline with its seals, pelicans and otters, and its range of water-based activities, is the star attraction. Most visitors head straight for the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, but there’s more to this town than just the marine life. Waterfront Cannery Row is lined with romantic hotels and tempting seafood restaurants, just waiting to be sampled. Monterey Jack cheese also originated here, so why not give it a try?
