Our Arizona adventure begins as we arrive in Phoenix. Tonight, transfer to Rustler’s Rooste Steakhouse where a total cowboy western experience awaits. A delicious dinner, live entertainment and unlimited drinks are the order of the night.
This morning we visit Montezuma Castle National Monument, an ancient five-story Indian dwelling carved out of a great limestone cliff. In Sedona, our narrated trolley tour visits the south side of town, highlighted by Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, Gallery Row and a stop at the famous Chapel of the Holy Cross
Travel to Grand Canyon National Park aboard the vintage Grand Canyon Railway and watch the ever-changing terrain, from high desert to prairie to pine. You will have ample time to explore Grand Canyon Village or use the park’s free shuttle system for breathtaking views.
Sedona, an artist community, is set amongst the red-hued rocks of Oak Creek Canyon. Its breath taking beauty fills the senses and soothes the soul. Today has been reserved as a day of leisure. Sit back, relax and enjoy the warmth of the Arizona sun, explore the eclectic art galleries and craft shops, or take an optional guided jeep tour through the Sedona backcountry.
This morning, we stop in Jerome, an old mining town and melting pot for those who dreamed of making a quick fortune. Once virtually a ghost town, it is now restored with shops, museums and art. Later we climb aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad for a spectacular journey over old-fashioned trestles, past ancient Indian ruins and through a 700-foot tunnel. Enjoy the views from the comfort of your First Class seat or from one of the open-air viewing cars. Watch for wildflowers, blooming cacti and wildlife in their natural habitat. Tonight, chow down with a chuckwagon supper at the "Blazin’ M Ranch" and Western Stage Show.
Our Arizona adventure comes to a close today with a group transfer to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for flights out after 12:00 p.m.
