Complete Tour Title: Coastal Missions by Rail: San Luis Rey & San Juan Capistrano Missions with Lunch Buffet

On this new tour we travel south along the coast to two of California's most historic landmarks and cultural icons. First, we motorcoach to San Juan Capistrano to board an Amtrak train for a coastal train ride to Solana Beach. The ocean views along this protected stretch of coastline are spectacular!  Our motorcoach will meet us in Solana Beach and transport us to Mission San Luis Rey de Francia in Oceanside.  Enjoy an included buffet lunch at the "King of the Missions" followed by a docent-led tour to peek into California history. Beginning with the arrival of the Spanish in Alta California in the 18th century, the story of the California Mission system and Mission San Luis Rey in particular, is told against a back-drop of historical buildings, inspiring artwork and unique artifacts. Come see how the Franciscan Friars and Luiseno Indians built a remarkably successful community both economically and spiritually, and how that legacy continues to this day.

Next, enjoy a docent-led tour of Mission San Juan Capistrano, founded as the 7th of 9 missions established by Saint Junipero Serra. Known for the "Miracle of the Swallows," this Mission was founded in faith and continues today to serve as a reminder of the past. See the beautiful museum rooms, exhibits, gardens and fountains. We will motorcoach home.

Required: when booking, provide full legal name as it appears on your driver's license or other government-issued identification that you will be presenting to Amtrak on the day of the tour.

Offsite Tour Location:

Unless otherwise instructed, your tour guide and motorcoach will pick you up at the Glendale College upper parking lot (Lot B). Parking at the college is $3 per day. Please arrive 20-30 minutes prior to departure time to park your car, pay for your parking permit at the kiosk, place your parking permit on your dashboard and board the motorcoach.

Refunds, minus a 20% processing fee, for cancellations will only be given if your seat can be resold by the office. You may send someone in your place with the permission of the office.
