What You Can Expect

Small-Group Tour: Deluxe Phoenix and Scottsdale Day Trip

Chase Field -- Home of the Arizona Diamondbacks

After pickup from your Phoenix or Scottsdale hotel, travel in a climate-controlled van for a comprehensive small-group tour of the regional highlights.

Drive through the picturesque landscape of the Sonoran Desert as you wind your way up to South Mountain Park, which spans more than 17 miles (27 km), making it the largest municipal park in the United States. In the district, you also visit The Farm, a gorgeous 10-acre estate that dates back to the 1920s.

As you drive along the downtown Phoenix corridor, check out the skyscrapers and sports stadiums for the Phoenix Suns (basketball) and the Arizona Diamondbacks (baseball). Passing by the Arizona State Capitol building, hear about its history since its construction in 1898, which helped pave the way for Arizona's transition from territory to statehood.

See another Phoenix architectural gem, the Arizona Biltmore, known as the 'Jewel of the Desert.' Designed by prominent American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Arizona Biltmore has hosted many heads of state, celebrities and dignitaries since it opened in 1929.

Head to Scottsdale’s Old Town to experience 'The West's Most Western Town.' Peruse the galleries and have time to pick up souvenirs if you like.

At the end of the 5.5-hour tour, you are returned to your hotel.

Didn't think I'd make this trip because of a very dreadful taxi ride en route, but VIATOR kept me in touch with the local operator, Wonderful Guillermo kept in touch by phone and waited for me! He was a terrific guide and made sure everyone ended up where they needed to be. Fabulous experience!

It is an excellent way to get an overview of Phoenix/Scottsdale if you don't care for driving in a large city. The driver also gives you small interesting details about the area that you may not find about otherwise. I would definitely recommend it,
