G'Day everyone... My wife and I are heading over from Australia on 4th March, 08 and starting our trip in San Francisco. We're spending three nights in San Francisco before joining a coach tour (easy for us seeing it's our first trip) which will take us to Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, L.A. and back to San Francisco on 18th March.
We are then renting a car for five days and heading back down the coast to L.A. to go to Hearst Castle, Disneyland of course and whatever we want...mainly eating I reckon!
It has been a dream of mine to visit the U.S. since first watching Disneyland on tv back in the 60's... Yes I'm old but that happens to you when you're waiting for your kids to grow up and leave home!
A couple of things that I've been wondering about are:
* What is the best way to get from San Francisco Airport ( mid morning) to the Fishermans Wharf area.
* What's the story with tipping... How does it work and how much is the correct amount. In Oz you 'might' tip if you really like a meal for instance.
Thanks in advance and I'm so glad I found this site...
