About the tour

Your adventure begins with an unforgettable ride aboard the Southwest Chief, a train that takes you through the night to Flagstaff. And it is here that your true expedition takes off. See the amazing colors of the Grand Canyon; try your luck on the Las Vegas Strip; get an up-close look at the most scenic sites in Yosemite National Park; watch history come to life in Sacramento; lose your heart in the City by the Bay and gain perspective as you relax alongside the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America and a favorite destination of travelers. By train, deluxe coach and even boat, take in all that America's vast, wondrous terrain has to offer, and then some, as you make memories to last a lifetime.

Such breathtaking scenery. Been to the Grand Canyon before, but enjoyed it even more on this trip. Cruising Rt 66 was exciting, Yosemite- what a creation from God. To sum it up, I loved it all!
