Everything in life has its ups and downs, including this fascinating tour of Arizona that directs your eyes to ancient cliff dwellings, towering spires, the deepest of canyons, and the deepest of mysteries. Exactly how did the Sinagua Indians reach their cliffside, five-story, high rise at Montezuma Castle? Explore these enigmas and more as you visit the lost canyons and cultures of the American Southwest. Guided jeep tours through Canyon de Chelly National Monument and the red rock scenery of Sedona get you closer to the secrets within the region’s sandstone formations, as do adventuresome train rides on the Verde Canyon Scenic Railroad and the Grand Canyon Railway. From Phoenix to Vegas, you’ll enjoy sightseeing in Tempe, Scottsdale, and Jerome – plus a tour of Boulder City’s Hoover Dam. A visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s modern winter home, Taliesin West, as well as time in Meteor National Park, are additional sights sure to leave an impact.
Feeling lucky? Whether you take in a show, shop at designer boutiques, lounge by your hotel pool, or try your hand at poker, adding two full days in Vegas to your canyon tour of the Southwest is no gamble. Included in your Las Vegas extension is a trip on the High Roller Observation Wheel with grand views of the city and the Strip.
