The Princess Star was re-positioning from its Alaska season to Hawaii. With only a week in-between the two itineraries, we enjoyed the 7 Night Northern California Coast with Princess. This was our second cruise with Princess but the first time cruising the Pacific Coast.
I have always wanted to see the Redwood trees. I just could not wait to go on this trip with Pacific Coast Adventure with Globus. If you like adventures in the outdoors, this is a great tour. The tour began in Seattle where there are many things to see and do. Many of the people on the tour had never been there. It would be advisable to go one day before the trip to do some of them. I have been to Seattle and went to the Space Needle, as well as Boeing.
Day 1/2 Arrive Los Angeles -Transfer to Long Beach
Our Southern California with Globus tour started out with a two-night stay it the Renaissance Hotel in Long Beach, CA. The highlight of this day, was when we boarded a high-speed ferry for an hour, that took us to Catalina Island. This included an island tour in an open air vehicle, and a day at leisure to shop, relax, and sample some local seafood at the pier in Avalon.
The Best of California With Insight Vacations was truly an amazing experience, from start to finish. From San Francisco to Los Angeles, and everything in between, it was definitely filled with many amazing sights and adventures! If you are a wine lover and a” Foodie”, this is the tour for you!
As part of my quest to see the beauty of North America, I was privileged to visit our glorious west coast state of California, on the California Classics with Globus tour. It truly is the Golden State! Looking back on the tour is bittersweet because many of areas we visited have been ravaged by the recent wildfires in the state. My heart aches for California.
