Day One: We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee & goodies on our way to Cameron Trading Post for lunch on self. Nestled along the Colorado River, and just 30 minutes south of the Grand Canyon, this trading post has been catering to Arizona tourists since the early 1900’s, serving great food at moderate prices. After lunch it’s back on the bus and we’ll hit it for Kanab, Utah—an incredibly scenic drive that takes us through Navajo land with views of Marble Canyon, Lake Powell, Glen Canyon Dam and more. After checking into our hotel, we’ll take a little time for a refresh, gather for our own Happy Hour and then head out for dinner on self. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening.
Day Two: A hot buffet breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s back on the bus and we’re headed for Zion
National Park. Zion is a spectacular cliff and canyon landscape, a wondrous wilderness—including Kolob Arch—the world’s largest natural arch, with a span that measures 310 feet. Zion is rich with beautiful colors, breathtaking scenery and wildlife such as mule deer, golden eagles and mountain lions. We’ll spend a little time familiarizing ourselves with the area at the visitor’s center and then we’ll tour Zion from the comfort of a tram. Hop on and off as you wish, and later we’ll enjoy a nice lunch on self, at one of the two restaurants at Zion. Late in the afternoon we’ll return to our hotel and after a refresh, we’ll gather for Happy Hour before heading out for dinner on self. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening.
Day Three: Once again, we’ll enjoy a hot breakfast buffet, included at the hotel, and then it’s back on the bus and we’re headed for Bryce Canyon National Park. The beauty of Bryce Canyon is beyond description. It has been called “a cave without a ceiling, a forest of stone.” We’ll tour Bryce from the comfort of our own bus, and we’ll all enjoy a delicious lunch on self, at Ruby’s Inn—where we’ll have two restaurants to choose from and their menus offer something for everyone. Bryce Canyon is a series of natural amphitheaters, with thousands of multi-colored rock pinnacles called “hoodoos.” We’ll travel the 20-mile paved highway along the rim, overlooking magnificent views of the natural structures that were carved by erosion into graceful forms that glow with various colors. Late in the afternoon we’ll return to our hotel and after a refresh, we’ll gather for our own Happy Hour, before setting out for dinner on self. Later we’ll enjoy a free evening.
Day Four: Breakfast is included at the hotel, and then it’s bags out and we’re back on the bus headed for home. We’ll enjoy lots of great sightseeing and stops along the way. This is an unforgettable tour that always fills very
quickly, so don’t hesitate to call in your reservations!
