New Itinerary

Price: $79 Per Person


A unique opportunity to take a docent-guided tour of the historic Mount Wilson Observatory – the astronomical research facility located on the summit of Mount Wilson (elevation 5,700 feet) above Pasadena. Founded in 1904 by George Ellery Hale, on this two-hour walking tour you’ll learn about its history, the construction of the 100-inch Hooker telescope (the world's largest from 1917 to 1948), current projects and major discoveries that have taken place here. Enjoy an included boxed lunch and time to explore the small astronomical museum on site. This afternoon we’ll enjoy time at leisure at the Griffith Observatory – one of Los Angeles’ most recognizable landmarks since it was built in 1935 – and its most famous movie location since 1955’s Rebel Without a Cause. The Art Deco building features spectacular exhibits and unbeatable hilltop views. Suggested: comfortable walking shoes (as there is considerable walking and standing on the Observatory tour) and a jacket or sweater due to the high elevation at Mt. Wilson. 
Depart: LHS 8:00 a.m., FV 8:30, CON 9:00. Return: 6:30 p.m.
