Your tour will officially start at your arrival hotel at 7.30am on Day 1.
Make sure you have packed your bags, eaten breakfast and have checked out of your room before meeting your tour leader in the hotel lobby. You will spend a few minutes filling out paperwork and meeting your fellow travellers before departing the hotel. This is a great time to ask any questions that you may have. Health, safety and other information will be covered at this point, or just after you have set off.
Accommodation and Meals
This is primarily a camping tour. All equipment (apart from your sleeping bag) will be provided; including large dome tents, inflatable sleeping pads, camping chairs and a portable kitchen! Most nights are spent at established campground with normal flush toilets and hot showers.
Freshly prepared, delicious meals are provided for you and included in the costs of the tour. The guides will shop locally and create healthy, hearty breakfasts, picnic lunches and gourmet dinners for you to enjoy as a group while camping. For the days that you are staying in a city (i.e. not on the road), you are encouraged to try many of the specialty foods that each city offers, so allow extra money for the nights you eat out in local restaurants.
As this is only a short tour, you will not have a lot of free time, however you will have the opportunity to do your own thing in each of the locations that you visit – you can choose to do an optional activity or just to relax and take in your surroundings.
Optional extra activities:
- Mountain biking
- Western horseback ride
- Guided nature walks
- Excellent national park hikes
- Visit Navajo jewellery market
- Scenic flight over the Grand Canyon and IMAX theatre
Please note: These optional activities are not included in the tour cost, so please bring some extra spending money with you if you would like to take part in these extra activities.
Throughout your tour you will have the support and guidance of the tour leader. They will provide you with competent assistance and help you with any questions, or advice you may need.
In addition you will have access to a 24-hour emergency contact number so you can contact one of our UK staff before or after your tour should you need to.
