Day 5

San Francisco (8:00 AM–7:00 PM)

Highlights of San Francisco include Nob Hill, the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge, likely the world’s most photographed suspension bridge, and the notorious Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. Alcatraz was one of the 20th century’s most feared prisons—both because of the dangerous criminals it housed, and because over its 29-year history not a single inmate successfully escaped.

This highly walkable city is also a mecca for food lovers—try out highly creative restaurants right on the waterfront.Another great option is a tour of the perennially popular Butchart Gardens. The 55-acre garden has been a beloved oasis in the heart of Victoria for over a century, and is a thriving, fragrant, colorful year-round destination for nature loving locals and tourists alike.

Day 8

Seattle (7:00 AM–6:00 PM)

Discover the Emerald City, often considered the crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest. Some of the most popular sights include Pike Place Market, a landmark since 1907 where flying fish are one of the biggest draws, the iconic 605-foot-tall Space Needle, and Pioneer Square, where you can learn about the history of the Great Seattle Fire of 1889.

Day 9

Disembarkation in Vancouver (Disembark at 6:00 AM)

This morning you’ll disembark in Vancouver, regarded as one of the world’s most livable cities. Vancouver is renowned for its clear mountain views, incredible cuisine, and overall wonderful quality of living. You’ll see why so many people love to visit and live in Canada’s third largest metropolitan areas during a city tour, which includes the Vancouver Lookout. Enjoy the evening at your leisure. Perhaps spend some time in Stanley Park, or visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge to admire Vancouver's great cedar forest, or even take a water taxi to Granville Island. The evening is yours to relax or to join us on a final optional tour.
