Southern California Charms Vacation

10 days | Roundtrip from Los Angeles

This laid back circuit of Southern California Charms by Globus Tours explores popular Golden State getaways, sunny stretches of coastline, and the golden age of Hollywood.

Visit the 18th-century mission in San Juan Capistrano, tour the Rat Pack’s mid-century modern homes in Palm Springs, and taste perfectly aged reds and whites in the picturesque wine regions of Temecula and Paso.

You’ll also feel the sand in your toes along San Diego’s 70 miles of beaches and your inner movie star emerge as you strut down Rodeo Drive.

Globus Tours provides everything you need for the perfect vacation – from hand-selected hotels to expert Local Guides and included VIP sightseeing access to the world’s iconic sites.

Depending on the size of your group, you can take over an entire date for this tour.
