    • Visiting California for the first time for a football game

      San Francisco Sep 26, 2016 at 4:39 PM

      I'm visiting CA for the first time for a football game in November. I will be in Santa Clara at Levi's Stadium. I'm going to extend my stay and do some traveling to other parts of Northern CA. I'm thinking of either going to San Francisco and driving to Sonoma or Napa Valleys. I also have thought of driving along the coast to Monterey and Big Sur. I'm wondering if it makes sense to stay for any length of time in Silicon Valley. Are there things to do there that merit my spending more time?

    • Family drive Yosemite NP to Death Valley in April

    • SF/LV/LA trip itinerary help

      California Sep 28, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      Hi everyone, I am travelling for the first time to California, and need a bit of assistance. I am landing at LAX at roughly 13:30, and should probably be out of the airport by 14:30. Our trip will be mid January for a total of 17 days. And I have already got flights from SFO-LAS, and then LAS-LAX. All the accommodation is already booked, now its all about the finer details to the trip.

      Part 1: The first bit of info that I need is regarding getting from LAX to San Francisco, I have been advised to take the PCH and stop over for the night in Morro Bay/Cayucos, then drive early the next day to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for a few hours before making our way to San Francisco. I have read many forums saying its not advisable to make that trip in 1 day, as theres too much to see, which I agree with... Unfortunately its that or take a flight direct to San Francisco. Please can you tell me if it is at all worth making that drive, or just taking a flight.

      Part 2: We will spend 5 nights in San francisco, and I am struggling to define what are must do's, as so many people recommend different things... right now this is my plan, please critique it,and help me make the right choices.

      Day 1: Arrive at the hotel mid day in Fishermans Wharf, spend an hour or two relaxing at the hotel, then going out to explore the Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli's and maybe catch the evening tour of Alcatraz. Return and have dinner close to the hotel.
      Day 2: Head out just after sunrise, taking the Cable car from Fishermans Wharf to Market street, and will probably walk to the Ferry Building and explore there, then make our way back to Union Square, and up to china town and exploring there. Afterwards, taking the cable car to Lombard street, then head back to the hotel, relax before dinner and find a nice area to eat with some music.

      Side note -- please can you tell me if i fit too many or too little things per day

      Day 3: Up and out early again to Steiner Str to walk through the park and see the Pink Ladies. Up to Golden Gate Park and the Academy of Science, the Morrison Planetarium, and the Japanese Tea Garden. then to the Golden gate bridge, will probably rent a bicycle and cycle to the other end... We would love to from here, go to Muir woods, spend an hour there, before making our way back to the hotel, again relax a bit, then go out for dinner.
      Day 4 : This day is still up for debate, but my wife would love to see Yosemite for the day... I know that you can easily spend a week without seeing everything, but the thought is that while we are on the west coast, we should make the effort to see the park, or at least as much as we can in 1 day.
      Day 5 : Take a small group tour to Napa and spend the day exploring the wineries.

      Part 3 : Departing to Vegas at around 11am, spending 3 nights there. This part of the trip is pretty much easy enough to plan for, but the highlight would be a helicopter trip to the grand canyon.

      Part 4 : Depart Vegas to LAX, we will be spending 4 nights staying in Hollywood area, and another 4 nights saying in Anaheim. Now for this part of the journey, we LOVE theme parks, and we are dedicating 3-4 days to it.

      Day 1 : Land at LAX at 13:00, make our way to the hotel, relax for a few hours, then off to see Hollywood BLVD, for the rest of the night.
      Day 2 : Drive to Six Flags Magic Mountain ( Never been to a Six Flags before, looking forward to it).
      Day 3 : Universal Studios
      Day 4 : Tour around LA (Please help me which things to see)
      Day 5 : Move to the new hotel in Anaheim, and explore the area for the day
      Day 6 : DisneyLand
      Day 7 : Disney Adventure

      Side Note: Let me know if 2 days is too much for these 2 parks.

      Day 8 : Still debatable, was thinking of driving to San diego for the last day.

      We fly out the next morning at 1AM, so don't want to do too much on the last day... pretty much just relax.

      That you all in advance for the advise and I look forward to you responses.

      Prepaid SIM and mobile web

      by schmechi Online Now Jun 21, 2010 at 12:43 PM

      Which prepaid SIM you'd recommend? I'll be in Cape town and Kriger park... Will you get the SIM card in supermarkets?

      And is there a cheap opportunity for using the internet on my laptop? Some mobile web provider who sells MBs without contract?

    • Capetown and Safari

      by Safari2010 Online Now Jun 10, 2010 at 8:53 PM

      We will be traveling to Capetown for the first time and would like to know what top things we MUST do and SEE in Capetown. Also, I know a lot of people have mentioned that Capetown is not a safari destination but I REALLY want to see a safari before I leave South Africa. Would you please recommend a few good safari tours that we can take? We would not mind flying to that destination, or what we prefer is a tour that will include airfare to that safari destination and lodging then back to CPT which is where we will depart CPT. Please help! WE heard that Kruger is a good place to see Big 5. Is it true? Are there any tours leaving from CPT TO Kruger?

      Where to stay? Waterfront or Long Street?

      by schmechi Online Now Jun 19, 2009 at 1:58 AM

      Where should we book our hotel? Around Long street or near V & A Waterfront? It is important, that we can go out at night, but we will also visit all major sights and do excursions by a hired car.

      Btw, we will arrive during the WC 2010, so will there be Fanfest like in Germany 2006? Does anybody know, where this area is planned?

      Robben Island & misc-booking a tour

      by gizzer1 Online Now May 4, 2007 at 2:46 PM

      First time visit to Capetown, SA. Want to see Robben Island. Prefer to buy tickets when I arrive. If so, where at?
      If best to buy ahead online, can someone provide URL?

      Have a full free day, perhaps see wine country. Is it worth it?
      If yes, please recommend tour companies in Capetown to book tour. Help if their URL is given.

      My wife, 2 boys, ages 13 and 10, and myself are going to S. Africa around the 1st of February, 07. We want to get up into Namibia and Botswana as well. We will be flying in from SE Asia to either Johannesberg or Capetown or visa versa, which ever makes the most sense. We have around 2 to 2 and a half months for this leg of our RTW trip. We are on a pretty tight budget, but understand that going to these areas won't necessarily be inexpensive. Problem is, we don't quite know how to approach travel there. Do we try to just get onto an overland safari for 21 days (they don't want kids on these)? Do we try to rent a car? Do we try local trasportation to get from country to country? Do we do a combination of these? We are open for anything. We also don't want to do a typical "family" safari, since our kids have shown they can handle pretty much any tough traveling, but will want to do a budget safari at some point. We would also be interested in helping out at an orphanage or school for a time. Is there someone to call in S. Africa that can answer most of these questioins? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      In need of a last minute flight deal

      by spirit8665 Online Now Oct 23, 2006 at 7:51 PM

      Hello new travel family!

      I have the amazing opportunity to participate in a 45 day tour covering Capetown, Namibia, Kenya and Tanzania. The catch is that I have to be in Capetown by Nov 25th...yeah, just 30 days away. Does anyone know of any last minute flight deals at really, really good prices? I've checked some airlines already and the fares are hefty. I'll even settle (if I must) as being a piece of luggage on a private jet...again, if I must :). Open for suggetions. THANKS!!

      Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me what the best way to get from the airport to near the V&A waterfront (to the Capetonian hotel actually) would be on arriving ... are there any transfer buses ?? Should I just get a taxi ?? Is there an underground ?? Also, does anyone have any recommendations as to whether to exchange money within Capetown or just do it in England before leaving ... do I get better rates when I'm there ?? Cheers, Darren
