From the outrageous live shows to the excitement of casinos, the action never stops from morning to night. Rest of the day is at leisure. Stroll down Las Vegas Boulevard, also known as “the strip.” Each hotel and casino have a distinctly different theme and all are wondrous displays. Take a trip up to the top of the Stratosphere hotel tower, the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

    Leave the glitter of Las Vegas behind for Utah. After a morning drive, we take a walkthrough Red Canyon before we continue to Bryce Canyon. Bryce is known for some of the most colorful rock formations in the world which have been sculpted by erosion into pillars called ‘hoodoos’ and other fantastic forms. We will walk into the canyon to experience the canyon up close. Iron oxides give red, yellow and brown tints to the limestone, while manganese oxides lend a lavender hue. The most brilliant hues in the park come alive with the rising and setting of the sun. Do not miss the opportunity for star gazing, as the clean air and lack of lights create a spectacular view. (B)

Here, a memorable experience awaits you: a tour led by an expert Navajo guide! See the towering cliffs, mesas and the unique sandstone formations that punctuate the sometime barren landscape, and that have inspired names such as “Three Sisters”, “The Thumb”, and the most famous of all “Totem Pole”. After enjoying a typical Navajo-style lunch, we continue to beautiful Lake Powell. Here, we will visit the Glen Canyon Dam and enjoy the viewpoints, before following the Colorado River on its way south and walk out to the viewpoint where it bends around a sandstone monolith at Horseshoe Bend.

The tour continues to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
