DAY 2 - Sedona, Grand Canyon National Park
Wake up early to meet your tour in the lobby for an 8:00 am departure. Travel through the Sonoran Desert, the richest, most biologically diverse desert ecosystem in the Americas, replete with thousands of species of animals and plants, including the towering Saguaro cacti. The Saguaro is the magnificent symbol of the Desert Southwest, capable of growing to 50 feet tall. Continue to Sedona and see the spectacular red rock scenery. Situated in a unique geological area, Sedona is encircled by distinctive red-rock monoliths, with such names as Cathedral, Coffee Pot, Bell, and even Snoopy because their massive shapes resemble these familiar images. Then drive through the breathtaking Oak Creek Canyon before arriving at Grand Canyon National Park, one of the seven great natural wonders of the world. Visit lookout points along the South Rim to fully experience this mile deep canyon – plunging gorges, rising spires, extinct volcanoes and below the rim, the winding Colorado River.
DAY 3 - Monument Valley, Lake Powell
Today your tour will take you to the Navajo Indian Reservation, passing the trading post of Cameron. Continue through the Painted Desert to see Monument Valley, an area that embodies perhaps the most definitive and iconic images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and sand-swept buttes of Monument Valley have been photographed and filmed countless times for movies and advertisements. Because of this, many visitors often feel an instant familiarity with the landscape, a sense of déjà vu. In the afternoon, we will enter the town of Page, in the Lake Powell Region. Visit the mighty Glen Canyon Dam, the second highest concrete-arch dam in America. From here you’ll enjoy views of stunning Lake Powell.
DAY 4 - Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon National Park
Enter the Beehive state of Utah this morning. Pass through the town of Kanab before visiting spectacular Bryce Canyon, where a tour through a multicolored world of sandstone spires and pinnacles will dazzle the eye. Nature’s artistry has created rocks in thousands of shapes, sizes and colors, beautiful in their setting against the unusually deep blue sky. Enjoy the evening at leisure.
DAY 5 - Zion National Park, Las Vegas
Travel today to Zion National Park and see the massive rock formations carved by wind, time, and the Virgin River. This afternoon experience the contrast of Las Vegas, Nevada – the dazzling “Entertainment Capital of the World,” where round-the-clock shopping, nightly shows, and of course gambling are available. Once an oasis en route to California, Las Vegas began as a Mormon settlement and boomed during the silver rush. Today Las Vegas is one of the great gambling capitals of the world.
DAY 6 - Las Vegas
Today is at leisure for you to enjoy the many attractions that Las Vegas has to offer. In addition to world-class shopping, bustling casinos, and Broadway-caliber shows, you might simply stroll the famous Strip taking in its amazing sights and sounds, or lie by the pool at your hotel, soaking up the sun. Make sure to bring your appetite, as Las Vegas boasts some of the country’s top restaurants.
