Itinerary

Day 1: Las Vegas– Grand Canyon– Lake Powell
Leave Las Vegas behind as you start the day traveling southeast through the scenic desert. Travel through a Navajo Indian reservation toward the south bank of the majestic Grand Canyon in Arizona. As you tour the south bank, learn from your guide how the Colorado River has been carving its way through the earth for hundreds of thousands of years. You’ll be in awe of the size and grandeur of the Grand Canyon.

After lunch, continue along the canyon, stopping at authentic Native American markets to browse the handmade arts and crafts. You’ll also have time to leisurely shop and enjoy the unique marketplace atmosphere.

Once you have finished shopping, head toward Lake Powell, one of the most beautiful lakes in America. Arrive at the lake in the late afternoon and check in at the Best Value Inn Page near the lake, where you’ll stay overnight.

Overnight – Best Value Inn Page, Lake Powell

Day 2: Lake Powell– Bryce Canyon (B)
After breakfast at the hotel, enjoy a scenic ride to Lake Powell and take a boat cruise on the water. On board, see hundreds of private coves and the famous salt pillars. You’ll also get a chance to walk around the lake and view the famous red sand arches characteristic of this area.

After the cruise, head west across the border and arrive at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. The canyon is home to some of the most amazing natural sculptures in the world. The delicately carved spires, pillars, arches and amphitheaters make the national park strikingly beautiful. Learn about the geological makeup of each of these one-of-a-kind natural sculptures.
Your guided tour will take you to see amazing rock and sand sculptures honed to perfection over thousands of years of rain, wind and sunshine. Head to one of the vista points in the park to experience a stunning sunset, whose dramatically changing colors will leave you mesmerized. Spend a comfortable night at the Shilo Inn Kanab.

Overnight: Shilo Inn Kanab, Utah

Day Three: Zion Park– Las Vegas (B)
Enjoy a continental breakfast at the hotel and then visit Zion National Park. Learn from your guide how the Virgin River was primarily responsible for slowly paring through layers of rock to sculpt Zion Canyon. Admire the awe-inspiring beauty of the high plateaus, striking towers, temples, mesas and one of the earth's tallest-known sheer sandstone walls.

You’ll also encounter breathtaking, picturesque sites like the Court of the Patriarchs, Angel's Landing, the Great White Throne, the Temple of Sinawava and Weeping Rock while taking small hikes. Take time on your own to hike around and discover the natural beauty of Zion National Park. The park is truly a photographer's paradise, where the vistas are stunning from every point on the compass. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the river before meeting your group at the minibus and heading back to Las Vegas.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Though we live in the US, we decided to take this tour rather than driving ourselves. Though it works out more expensive than driving, I was able to relax and take naps while a professional driver did the driving. The bus was nice and comfortable.
There was bit of confusion about where to board the bus at the starting point so I suggest that if you take this tour, scout out the starting point the day before.
The time at each location was sufficient for me and my family. The boat ride on Lake Powell turned out to be more enjoyable than I expected. Our guide, Emmanuel, was fantastic! He checked on us frequently to make sure we were comfortable, gave good tips and suggestions about where to eat and what to expect at each location. He also made sure everyone was on time. One of the best tour guides I have come across.
The motels are basic but clean and functional. The breakfast that is included in the tour is just the complementary breakfast offered by the motels and is very basic (eggs, toast, coffee, muffins, cereal). For me Zion National Park was nothing special.
Overall, we had a good, relaxing trip and great views of Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell and Zion National Park.
