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.

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.

Great places but the male tour gide was completely not interested in his job and had very little knowledge. In Zion he told us that there is no point in going to the wheeping rock as it is dry and no water. Guess what? We went anyway and it was amazing with water cascading from it. All along he spend most of his time talking only to one Israeli couple and almost ignored my Family as well as another Australian couple from Brisbane. Fortunately the second tour gide assigned to look after all the Italian couples (her name was Carla) was really good, energetic and made the tour fun for us all. Thank you Carla

The "head" tour guide was the worst I had ever encountered on a tour. He would be fired if I had a say. He should not have had the job. We ate in a gas station - not good and the first motel was pretty bad. There was a total lack of organization. I've never been on a tour that ran people 13-14 hours per day.
