David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition marks the return to California of the best-known British artist of this generation with a comprehensive survey of his work including portraits, landscapes, oils, drawings, and watercolors. With more than 300 works, it is the largest show in the museum’s history. In the afternoon, an optional shuttle is offered to the Legion of Honor for Matisse from SFMOMA. On loan from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the exhibition features 23 paintings, drawings, and bronzes from the acclaimed artist Henri Matisse.
*Lunch is on your own at either of the museum cafes.

We do not share specific pick-up information on our web site, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pick-up points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pick-up points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pick-up points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
Our always popular Day at the Races includes a buffet lunch and seating in the enclosed Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields by beautiful San Francisco Bay in Berkeley.

Two 3-night hotel stays anchor this itinerary, full of “rarely or never before visited on a Sports Leisure tour” attractions/destinations. One stay is in a historical city, one in a historical property. Allow us to offer some clues as to your destinations: There is dinner one night in an exclusive club, and at one point in your travels, you’ll ponder where to cross the river. You’ll meet a prince and a general, and learn of some fictional characters from a place called “Downton Abbey” you may enjoy.
Considering the calendar, fall foliage could come into play, but the big question is, “Will they be better inside or out?” The colors we mean. Both hotels are named for famous American families. Visit a historic but new castle (How can it be both?), explore the halls of a famous house of learning.
