Featuring San Francisco, Napa and Lake Tahoe

A crimson bridge, cable cars, a sparkling bay, and streets lined with elegant Victorian homes—San Francisco is undeniably one of the world’s great cities. Reason enough to join us on a spectacular seven-day journey through Northern California on the California Rail Discovery.

Begin your trip with a two-night stay in the Fisherman’s Wharf area of San Francisco. A tour of the “City by the Bay” will show the city’s many highlights & features a San Francisco Bay Cruise for spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the beautiful skyline. In the afternoon, cross the Golden Gate Bridge and take in the sights and smells of the majestic redwood trees of Muir Woods. These are some of the oldest and tallest coastal redwoods in the world. Later enjoy some free time browsing the storefronts along Fisherman’s Wharf, sample a chowder filled sourdough bread bowl or take a Cable Car ride.

The next day enjoy Napa Valley’s stunning scenery and sample some local wines during a Winery Tour & Tasting. Explore Old Sacramento’s Waterfront and visit the California State Railroad Museum to see beautifully restored railroad cars and locomotives that illustrate rail history in California and the West. Continue your tour and board Amtrak’s California Zephyr which travels east into the spectacular snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Lake Tahoe area.

Enjoy the next three evenings in scenic and popular South Lake Tahoe. Visit Reno’s famous National Automobile Museum and discover the historic town of Virginia City, once considered the richest city in America during its’ Old West mining days. Finally, a Paddlewheeler Cruise on Lake Tahoe and a Farewell Dinner at a local restaurant will cap off your California Rail adventure.
