John and Anne Nyffenegger from Saskatoon boarded a WestWorld Tours motorcoach in February 2015 and headed southwest to their dream destination: California.

Highlights of the first leg of their journey included travelling through Montana’s Rockies, Utah’s red rock canyons and the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel in Nevada before arriving in sunny Palm Springs, California. This was their favourite destination on the tour. There was plenty of shopping and sightseeing as well as a ride on the world’s largest rotating tramcar and a tour of San Gorgonio Wind Park. After Palm Springs they went on to San Diego where they went to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo.

In Anaheim they visited Disneyland, Mann’s Chinese Theatre and strolled down the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame where almost 2,400 stars span the nearly three and a half miles of sidewalk on Hollywood Boulevard. “We looked for the stars of icons like Gene Autry, Lucille Ball and John Wayne,” said Anne. The Disneyland Resort featured two theme parks and all the magic of Disney!

John especially enjoyed the tour of the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. Sarah L. Winchester, rifle heiress, built this 160-room Victorian mansion. “The construction took place round-the-clock over a span of 38 years until Sarah’s death,” explained John. “There were so many peculiarities in the final layout.”

Concluding their journey they saw the historic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, toured wine country in Napa Valley and went on a day trip to Oatman, Arizona to see the wild burros. They also moseyed on down to Virginia City, Montana, an old west ghost town which is now a modern-day tourist attraction. Anne commented, “We headed home satisfied with our wonderful vacation.”

California Dreaming was the Nyffenegger’s seventh WestWorld Tours vacation. They were married in 2004 at Pigeon Forge on the WestWorld Tours Branson, Nashville and Pigeon Forge tour. For their 10th wedding anniversary they went on a WestWorld Tours Newfoundland-Labrador tour.

John and Anne were pleased with the great service and hospitality they received from the WestWorld Tours motorcoach driver, Dennis Day, and tour guide, Koral Carpentier. “We wouldn’t go with another tour company,” said John. “WestWorld Tours is absolutely the better choice. They handled the details and made the experience so enjoyable.”
