About the tour
Watch as the Wild West comes to life on this 9-day tour. Explore the hottest and driest destination in the United States, Death Valley National Park, and see one of the universe's most awe-inspiring sites, the Grand Canyon. Travel by train on the Grand Canyon Railway and by deluxe motorcoach along historic Route 66. One amazing adventure after the next awaits!
The tour kicks off with a day in Las Vegas before moving on to Death Valley. Desert landscapes and fascinating points of interest are highlighted during our guided tour of the park. Enjoy Rhyolite ghost town, Badwater Basin, Harmony Borax Museum and Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, amongst other sites. Continuing through the region, reflect on history at the Manzanar National Monument and explore the eerie surroundings of Randsburg ghost town. It would not be a trip through the West without a journey down Route 66, and we do just that en route to Williams, AZ. It is here that we board the famous Grand Canyon Railway in pursuit of some of the most awe-inspiring views on the planet from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. In addition to exploring the Canyon, enjoy a jeep tour through the surrounding backcountry, a visit to Jerome ghost town and a first-class ride aboard the Verde Canyon Railway. Heading back into the city, a trolley tour of Sedona is the perfect conclusion to this comprehensive trip.
