The dramatic canyons and boundless deserts of Arizona comprise a landscape instantly recognisable the first time you see it. This is the Wild West of countless iconic movies; the Wild West of childhood games of ‘Cowboys and Indians’. Our tour presents a peerless insight into the real history of the West as you appreciate marvels of nature such as the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Lake Powell, the latter in the company of a Native American guide. And, of course, no tour of the Wild West would be complete without a visit to Tombstone, scene of the infamous ‘Gunfight at the OK Corral’.
We depart this morning and head south through the White Mountain region for some excellent views of the Salt River Canyon as our route snakes to the bottom to cross the Salt River and here you will see why some call this the “mini” Grand Canyon. We continue to Globe for lunch before visiting the 320-acre Boyce Thompson Arboretum, founded by a mining magnate whose vision of a park set in a spectacular location was realised in the 1920s and is still an extremely popular location today. Later, the fi nal leg of our journey today takes us to Tucson where we stay for three nights at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador.
