Day 1 - Scottsdale
A tour of canyon country features some of America's most colorful and spectacular scenery and includes visits to three national parks. Your vacation begins in the colorful city of Scottsdale. This evening, roll up your sleeves for a good old-fashioned Chili Cook-Off! All of the ingredients will be supplied for you to create an award-winning chili. After the judging is complete, enjoy a western-style dinner

Day 2 - Scottsdale / Phoenix / Scottsdale

This morning will be a highlight of your trip as you enjoy a chat with a local Native American tribe member. Learn about the different tribes of the area, their histories, and modern day life of Native Americans in Arizona. After your presentation, a local guide will introduce you to Scottsdale and Phoenix. Highlights of this tour include downtown Phoenix, Camelback Mountain, Paradise Valley, Old Town Scottsdale and more. Next you will visit a local shop in Old Scottsdale to learn a bit of the history of several different Native American styles of jewelry. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore Old Town Scottsdale or just relax at your hotel.

Day 3 - Scottsdale / Sedona / Grand Canyon

Begin the day with a visit to the beautiful city of Sedona and take some time to shop in the marketplace. You will be amazed with Oak Creek Canyon, where the rock formations seem to change hue with every turn in the road. Later, as you travel through the spectacular Kaibab National Forest, you will reach the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Day 4 - Grand Canyon / Lake Powell
This morning you will have ample time to explore the Grand Canyon. Behold amazing views of the canyon with a drive along the South Rim. Theodore Roosevelt, upon visiting the canyon, is quoted as saying, “This is one of the great sights which every American, if he can travel at all, must see.” Later, a short drive brings you to Cameron Trading Post. For nearly a century, the post has been a haven for travelers, traders and explorers who come from all points of the globe to see the wonder of the Grand Canyon and experience the Native American cultures of the Southwest. Continue north through mesa-studded desert scenery before arriving at your home for the next two evenings, a lovely hotel overlooking the stunning blue waters of Lake Powell.

Day 5 - Lake Powell
Begin your day with an invigorating breakfast cruise* along lovely Lake Powell. Journey through the territory of the Navajo nation and arrive in Monument Valley, a sacred Navajo land featuring colorful sandstone spires that rise hundreds of feet from the valley floor. Enjoy an exciting tour, narrated by one of the Navajo tribe members. A stop will be made at a Hogan. The history and symbolism of a Hogan represents every aspect of Navajo life: their thinking, reasoning, planning, and their philosophy. Later today, return to Lake Powell for an evening at leisure.

Day 6 - Lake Powell / Bryce Canyon National Park / Zion National Park
Today, travel to Bryce Canyon National Park, truly one of the most spectacular scenic wonders of the world. The formations within Bryce Canyon National Park, called Hoodoos, are the creation of wind and water erosion over eons of time. Iron oxidizing within the rock causes the natural orange and red hues that color these formations. Your final destination for the day is the red and white sandstone cliffs of Zion National Park. In sheer magnitude and color, Zion is very likely one of the most awe-inspiring national parks in the world.

Day 7 - Zion National Park / Las Vegas

Climb aboard Zion’s open-air tram to truly experience spectacular scenery as you wind alongside the Virgin River through the 2,400 foot deep, 1/2 mile wide Zion Canyon. Later, leave nature's beauty behind for the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip. Probably the most famous stretch of road in the world, its four miles of neon-lit resorts with around-the-clock action is like nowhere else on earth. A two-night stay provides you plenty of time to enjoy the shows, the casinos and all the fun.

Day 8 - Fabulous Las Vegas
Today is yours to do as you please. Lounge by the pool, experience an amazing one-of-a-kind show, go hiking – the choice is yours. Or, perhaps explore the hotels on the strip with themes that capture your attention as you get swept away by the wonders inside. Take time to visit Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef aquarium or stop by the Luxor to see the sphinxes and pyramid. New York-New York brings the "Big Apple" to life right on the Vegas strip. See the Eiffel Tower, "ooh" and "ahh" at the Mirage volcano, or watch pirates battle at Treasure Island. The Las Vegas strip brings the world to you. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.
