It’s a land of scenes epic in scope, from the immense Grand Canyon and the sinuous Colorado to the sandstone spires of Bryce and the red-rock cliffs of Zion, which your small group – limited to just 24 guests – celebrates.  Begin your 12-day journey in sunshine-blessed Tucson at the renowned 98-acre Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.  Tour Phoenix’s fascinating Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art.  Encounter dazzling Sedona’s towering red sandstone formations with an exhilarating Jeep tour then spend a day at the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, a UNESCO site.

Take a thrilling Colorado River motorized rafting excursion from the Glen Canyon Dam.  Discover stunning Upper Antelope Canyon’s “flowing” rock walls, and marvel at Bryce Canyon National Park’s otherworldly hoodoo rock formations.  Enjoy a day in Zion National Park’s wondrous natural world.  After your immersion in outdoor grandeur, depart for Las Vegas, where you toast your Southwestern adventure at a farewell dinner.
