Small-Group Tour: Deluxe Phoenix and Scottsdale Day Trip
From $89.00
Take in the highlights of Phoenix and Scottsdale, the largest cities in the Sonoran Desert, during a 5.5-hour tour with a knowledgeable guide. Discover history and architecture in downtown Phoenix, at the Arizona State Capitol, Arizona Biltmore and more. Learn how Phoenix has become one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. Neighboring Scottsdale features a vibrant downtown district full of local businesses and cultural events.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Phoenix or Scottsdale hotel, travel in a climate-controlled van for a comprehensive small-group tour of the regional highlights.
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.
