YOU’LL WANT TO WARM UP YOUR VOCAL CORDS BEFORE TESTING THE ACOUSTICS AT THE UNDISCOVERED CANYONS OF ARIZONA AS WELL AS THE COUNTRY’S MOST FAMOUS CHASM.
Beauty, awe, and wonder echo from Phoenix to Vegas as you explore ancient cliff dwellings, towering spires, the deepest of canyons, and the deepest of mysteries. Exactly how did the Sinagua people 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. Hop in a 4-wheel-drive backcountry vehicle with a local Navajo guide and cruise through 5,000 years of uninterrupted civilization at Canyon de Chelly National Monument— home to ancient ruins, spires, and petroglyphs as well as modern-day Navajo families. You’ll also feel the wind in your hair on a guided Jeep tour through the stunning red rock scenery and sandstone formations of striking Sedona, and on the Verde Canyon Scenic Railroad should you choose to take in the breathtaking, high-desert scenery from an outdoor viewing car.
Other sights in canyon country that will make a lasting impact are Meteor Natural Landmark, the world’s best-preserved meteorite impact site on earth; Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s beloved winter home; the Hubbell Trading post, the oldest, continuously operating trading post in the American Southwest; and the majestic Grand Canyon where you’ll enjoy a scenic train ride from Williams, Arizona to the Canyon’s South Rim. Want to marvel at millions of years of geological history from a different perspective? How about an optional helicopter ride?
This lost canyon tour also includes a tour of the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix to admire its thousands of species of cacti and flowers, a visit to the Hoover Dam—a marvel of engineering built during the Great Depression, and just enough time in “Sin City” to avoid any deep trouble. Helloooooo!
