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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

I must admit , this was one of the best tours in my experience. It was so smartly planned, we always had just enough time to enjoy it at every point, still never in a rush, technical stops happening at the right time at the right places, the choice of the hotels and restaurants was very satisfying . Emanuel is a great guide and a great guy, very helpful and informative, giving all the possible useful tips and managing the group with perfect humor and social skills. Jonathan the driver is one of the nicest persons ever. And as for the parks .. Well, they are breathtaking, beautiful and indescribable - you just must see . It was more than worth every penny . I strongly recommend it.

I enjoyed every minute of this tour. It was so well organised, the guides were great especially our leader Siah, the scenery is breathtaking and the accommodation was much better than I had expected. We were very lucky with the weather, which was not too warm, so we could happily hike at Bryce Canyon and Zion. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

This tour is an amazing opportunity to see 3 national parks in 3 days! Here are the pros/cons:
Pros: The tour guide Manuel who gives the tour in Italian and English is fantastic! He is funny, patient, informative and attentive to each tourist. He was very accommodating when we had to make a special request, and when you're on a bus for 6-7 hours a day, it's great to have a good-natured and charming person like Manuel to make the journey interesting.
The bus driver, Greg, was great as well. He's a safe driver and sells water for 1 a bottle, so take advantage of that!
Day 1:The Grand Canyon is breathtaking. We were able to spend time at the South Rim and we also had about an hour to visit the Desert View. Overnight at the Clarion Motel in Page, AZ was fine--typical continental breakfast provided.
Day 2: Morning boat ride on Lake Powell was more fun than we expected. Everyone rushes to the top deck of the boat, but if it's sunny--you will burn--outside of the lower deck was actually the best spot--full range of views for photos and some shade!
Bryce Canyon is beyond words. It's like being on another planet. We hiked the entire Navajo Loop trail and it was worth it! Most people just walk halfway down the hoodoos and then return the same way....you will miss out if you do this!
Day 3: Zion --- a beautiful landscape---hike the Emerald Pool Trails...wade in the river...it's a nice laid back day.
Cons: 1.The Days Inn Motel that we stayed in on Day 2 in Kanab, Utah was awful! Mold, bugs, horrible smell, unhelpful staff....Viator really needs to find an alternative---this place was filthy.
2. There should be more flexibility for choosing restaurants. Lunch on Day 2 is very mediocre we all had to eat at the same place in Kanab and lunch on day 3 is at a chain restaurant that had a 30 min. wait. I recommend you don't wait in line since you can find much better places to eat across the street!

Well arranged tour. Great choices of the three canyons and the two hotels and great recommendations of the restaurants for lunches and dinners.

Just as it said on the tin. Great Guide who covered everything with good humour and knowledge. Hotels were OK and meals were well advised. No complaints at all, our expectations were met following all the pre trip promotion.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This tour turned out to be perfect for my group. My kids are 10 and 12 and we also brought my uncle who is 77. The trip was not too physically demanding and there were frequent stops for break. The time spent at each site was too short for my wife and I buthe fine for our group.
