I am trying to get a booking done with my travel agent, we are coming from South Africa, spending 3 nights in San Fran, 2 nights and 3 days hopefully driving Tiago through death valley onto Vegas, 4 nights in Vegas. We need 4 nights in Vegas because of meeting our American friends there and don't want to cut San Fran shorter than 3 nights. We have a provisional booking at Mammoth Lakes and Furnace Creek Inn.... please advise if we would be better off having our stop overs elsewhere? My thinking is that Furnace Creek Inn is a good option but perhaps we can do better than Mammoth Lakes in our 1st stop!? But where? Of course we want to maximise our time but without being in a mad rush.
Thank you much!
