I would very much value your opinion of an itinerary for 8 days. We'll be flying from London to San Francisco and back. Thinking of 2 or 3 days in SF (previously visited) for arts and dining. Would then hire a car for the rest of the trip. WOuld dearly like recommendation of hotels in SF, Tahoe. And any tips on booking but still remain flexible. Would be interested in deluxe properties. What about ski+lodge package?
