Today we visit Queen Creek Olive Mill, Arizona's only working olive farm and mill, for a tour and a chance to taste their award-winning oils. We enjoy a delicious lunch onsite before heading to the Superstition Mountains.

Day 3 : Heard Museum & Taliesin West

Begin the day at the Heard Museum for Native American Art and Culture. Known internationally for the quality of its collections and educational programming, this museum set the standard for working with native communities to provide a voice for their heritage. Our guided tour features the famous Kachina Dolls, symbols of good health in the Hopi culture. Unique opportunities are in store for us as we depart for famous Taliesin West. Frank Lloyd Wright’s desert masterpiece began construction in 1937 as his personal residence and architectural studio, located in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains. Experience truly amazing design and seamlessly integrated interior and exterior spaces on a guided tour of the property. Later the Old West meets the New West in Old Town Scottsdale, where we have time to discover the southwestern culture and attractions that make this city a top destination.

Day 4 : Sedona & Montezuma Castle

We say farewell to Phoenix and travel northbound to witness the legacy of the Sinagua culture at Montezuma Castle National Monument, home to some of the most impressive cliff dwellings in North America. We reach Sedona by midday, known for its rich Native American history, and enjoy time to shop, explore, and have lunch in "Red Rock Country." Tonight we arrive in Williams and check-in to our hotel for a two-night stay.

Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5 : The Grand Canyon

A spectacular natural wonder of the world, the Grand Canyon, greets us this morning. Stretching 277 miles, its multi-hued walls tell an epic geologic story sculpted over millennia by the shifting earth and the winding Colorado River that still courses on the canyon’s floor. We have time for photo stops on the South Rim before having the early afternoon at leisure in Grand Canyon Village. Later enjoy a scenic train journey aboard the historic Grand Canyon Railway.


Day 6 : Las Vegas

This morning we "get our kicks" on Route 66 as we travel the country's most famous highway en route to Las Vegas. Upon arrival we check in to our centrally-located deluxe resort hotel for two enjoyable evenings. The remainder of the day is free to experience the shops, restaurants, and iconic casinos along its lively strip as you please. Holiday Vacations will provide you a "Vegas Your Way" meal voucher to use for your meal this evening.

Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7 : Hoover Dam & Vegas at Leisure

Today we marvel at the engineering behind Hoover Dam. Explore the visitor center and theater as well as a tour into the dam. From the Penstock Viewing Platform, we stand in awe of the three-foot diameter pipes capable of transporting almost 90,000 gallons of water each second from the lake to the dam’s hydroelectric generators. Afterwards, enjoy staggering views from the Nevada power plant balcony. Back in Las Vegas' Fremont Street area, we'll celebrate our Best of the Southwest adventure with our new friends at a Farewell Lunch at the Triple George Grill. Next we go on a guided tour of the Mob Museum to discover the real story of classic organized crime with interactive exhibits and artifacts that once belonged to mobsters and law enforcement agents. Enjoy the remainder of the afternoon and evening at leisure. Take in a show, stroll The Strip or Fremont Street, or simply relax at our deluxe resort hotel.
