Stop in the desert oasis of Palm Springs, an area sprinkled with Hollywood stardust. This afternoon, head to the mountain-ringed desert resort of Scottsdale. Later tonight, join the optional excursion to one of Arizona's cowboy steakhouses, which, according to legend, was once a hideout for cattle rustlers.
4

Scottsdale

This morning begins with a Phoenix sightseeing tour that includes downtown and Old Town Scottsdale. Afterward, free time to explore the Old West, with restaurants, shopping, and Western bars. With wooden beams, wagon wheels, and cowboy hats, you're sure to feel like you've travelled back in time to the era of outlaws and swing-door saloons. (CB)

Travel to Sedona, a thriving centre for New Age arts set in Canyon Country. On to the weather-sculptured rock formations of Oak Creek Canyon. Travel alongside the San Francisco Mountains and beautiful pine forests to the South Rim of the GRAND CANYON. Time to stroll the canyon rim, or, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, take an optional helicopter flightseeing excursion for incomparable views of flame-coloured walls plunging 2,134 metres (7,000 feet) into the Colorado River. Overnight in Williams, a picturesque mountain town with Route 66 as the Main Street and the gateway to the Grand Canyon. (CB)

Williams - Las Vegas

Cross the old Mojave gold-strike country, which still has traces of century-old ghost towns set in natural desert beauty. Watch for Joshua trees, a species of the lily family that grows to more than 12 metres (40 feet) in height and can live up to 300 years. By late afternoon, reach Las Vegas, the fantastic city of feverish gambling, neon lights, bars, and glamorous shows. Be sure to explore some of the many themed casino resorts along the colourful "Strip." This evening, we highly recommend a night out to a dazzling stage show featuring top Vegas entertainment.
