Spectacular scenery, arid desert lands, a clear sunny climate with very low humidity, the fascinating Spanish and Indian cultures, the romantic allure of the Old West and an easy-going lifestyle are just a few of the reasons why Arizona has become such a popular resort area.
On this tour we begin with four days in Tucson - the “City of Sunshine”, whose cultural mix of Wild Western, Spanish, Mexican and Indian cultures is colourful and fascinating. Tucson lies in a valley flanked by high hills and is known for its flourishing beauty of the surrounding Sonoran Desert.
Our next five-night stop is in Phoenix. Located in the “Valley of The Sun” just a short distance from Scottsdale, the city is rich in arts and culture, with a wide array of sumptuous restaurants and culinary delights. With more than 300 days of sunshine every year, the beautiful climate here makes it the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. In addition, the desert, lush with Saguaro and Prickly Pear cactus, and the nearby Superstition Mountains offer an incredible diversity of wildlife.
After our stay in Phoenix, we explore Northern Arizona. Highlights include visits to the stunning “Red Rock” monoliths of Sedona, the extraordinary “Spiral Rock Arches” of Antelope Canyon and, last but not least, the majestic Grand Canyon.
After experiencing nature's breathtaking beauty we travel to the desert playground of Las Vegas - a lively way to end our tour!
