Small-Group Tour: Deluxe Phoenix and Scottsdale Day Trip

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    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.

    WOW - blown away by your guide Laurel - she's the best. We were in the area in August and took the City Tour. Even though it was bordering on 107 degrees, Laurel made our tour so fun and we never noticed how hot it...More

    There were four people in our group, and Dan, the guide, picked us up at our hotel. It turned out that we were the only 4 on the tour - so we basically had a private tour for the day. Dan was quite knowledgeable and...More

    I'm sure you could, but it is a LOT of just riding on the van. I got bored at times and if the baby was fussy, it would make it difficult for the others in the van to hear what the driver was explaining to them.

    We found a list of hotels for pickup on their website. I don’t remember exactly where it was, but I stumbled upon the list before I booked it.

    Yes, at scheduled stops. Most of this tour was on city streets and freeways, so not much to photograph.
