In California you can pioneer or pamper. The glitz and glamour of the cities, sun drenched coastline with its beaches and restaurants, and the clear lakes and fresh air of the mountains give California a clear advantage if you're looking for a trip that has everything.

Self Drive

Driving the state is one of the very best ways to get the most out of the coast, desert, national parks and the cities. During the summer, a convertible is the way to go. Highway 1 along the coast is one the world's best drives and Los Angeles is the home of the freeway. We can arrange a car for you and your family and put together a fantastic self drive itinerary, allowing you to pick up your car in one location and drop it off in another. We will arrange all of your accommodation and provide you with clear information and maps to ensure you have the very best driving adventure. Talk to us about arranging a self drive trip in California.

Pricing
At A&K all of our journeys are individually tailored to suit your needs and timescale. However, as a guide, an 11 day luxury California holiday will cost from £2,955 per person based on two adults sharing with flights from the UK and subject to availability.
