TOUR ITINERARY

Departs: between 6:00 am and 7:00 am

Returns: between 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm

After departing the Phoenix metro area, our tour travels through the expansive Sonoran Desert filled with the native saguaro cactus. The scenery begins to change as we increase in elevation and views of the cactus fade into pine trees. As we continue further into Northern Arizona, we will travel the outskirts of the Route 66 town of Flagstaff and from the highway, see the San Francisco Peaks among the seemingly endless Ponderosa Pine Forest, the largest contiguous forest of ponderosa pines in the world.

Williams will be our first stop along the tour for a chance to experience Route 66, the iconic American highway steeped in rich tradition. While in Williams, guests will have the opportunity to “get their kicks on Route 66” with walks along the original route, explore the local shops and capture souvenir photos highlighting a bygone era in classic American history. Also known as the Will Rodgers Highway, Route 66 is the most recognizable road in the United States and stretched 2,448 miles from Chicago to California upon completion. While you are enjoying Route 66, your guide will pick up your picnic lunch made fresh that morning.

You’ll experience about three hours within the National Park marveling at the beauty that is the Grand Canyon. Don’t forget to visit the historic El Tovar Lodge and Hopi House in Grand Canyon Village. While at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, you will have opportunities to walk the rim, shop, capture an unlimited number of photographs, or enjoy your lunch and relax with the best seat in the house.

TOUR ITINERARY

Departs: between 6:30 am and 7:30 am

Returns: between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm

The day will begin with a pick up from most hotels in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. After hotel pick up, we will tour to the heart of the Verde Valley which was recently named a Top 10 travel destination by Lonely Planet.

Our first major tour stop will be the historic mining town of Jerome. Mining in Jerome started in the late 1800’s and over the course of its history has produced approximately 33 million tons of ore including copper and gold. During our time in this historic mining ghost town, we will explore the history that made it “the wickedest town in the West.”

After our Jerome tour, we’ll visit the copper mining mecca of Clarkdale and the Arizona Copper Art Museum. Using the original school house, the Arizona Copper Art Museum tour showcases more than 5,000 unique pieces dating back to 3500 BCE. During our time at this world class art museum, guests will explore both functional and artistic uses of this second oldest known metal on the planet. From the practical uses in home kitchen supplies and tools to the ornate works of art used to adorn palaces and castles, the wide uses of copper are nothing short of amazing!

From the Arizona Copper Art Museum, we will tour to the historic Verde Canyon Railroad for a chance to enjoy incredible views of the Verde Valley. The very first tracks were put down over 100 years ago to transport local workers and ore mined from the surrounding Jerome mountains and are still in use today. The unspoiled wilderness you will tour through is a scenic and historic treasure that has left people in awe since 1911. With stunning views of the Verde Valley from either your first class seats or your open-air viewing car, the casual elegance of the train allows guests to discover the heritage uniqueness of the landscape and its diverse ecosystem. From the stunning 1,800 foot tall red rock canyon walls as we get closer to Sedona to the consistently rippling waters of the Verde River, the scenery explored on this four hour journey is truly breathtaking. As they say, “it’s always a good day when you’re on a train.”

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

 
TOUR ITINERARY

Departs: between 6:00 am and 7:00 am

Returns: between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm

Our first stop as we head into the wild west is the White Dove of The Desert; one of the Southwest’s best preserved missions at San Xavier del Bac. Founded in 1692, the San Xavier Mission is still in operation and allows guests to marvel at the ornate craftsmanship showcasing both Spanish and Native influences. Original frescoes and statuary are still on display within the mission for guests to admire as well.

We’ll head further south into the “Town to Tough to Die”. Tombstone was home to the true men and women of the West. Outlaws, businessmen, miners, and cattlemen flocked to the area in the late 1870’s for their chance to strike it rich. The most famous lawman of Tombstone, and the entire West, was Wyatt Earp. Wyatt and his brothers originally came to Tombstone as entrepreneurs; however, with the increasing unrest they needed to protect their investment in the mining industry and became lawmen. During the tour, guests will be able to stand on the very ground Wyatt Earp stood during the shootout at the OK Corral!

While in Tombstone, you’ll have a chance to visit both sides of this “colorful” town. The original gathering spots for outlaws and gunmen who strolled into town were Big Nose Kate’s Saloon and the Bird Cage Theatre. The Bird Cage Theatre, which had the reputation as “the wickedest nightspot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast,” was a saloon, gambling parlor, and theatre show that provided entertainment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 8 years to anyone brave enough to enter. For those men and women who were “overly brave” and fell afoul of the law, they had to make a visit to the Tombstone Courthouse. Included in your tour will be entrance to the museum at the Tombstone Courthouse, which pays homage to the brave souls who did their best to keep the peace in this rough and tumble town. True to the reputation of the Wild West, gunfights and stand-offs were a weekly occurrence. For those souls unfortunate enough to be on the losing end of those gun battles, they were buried at the infamous Boot Hill Cemetery. The cemetery aptly got its name from those who died with their boots on and were buried as such.
