SPRINGTIME ON THE VERDE CANYON RAILROAD


The Verde Canyon—loaded with native flora & fauna, high desert rock faces and spectacular scenery—is only accessible by rail. The Verde Canyon Railroad offers us a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Canyon from the comfort of a fully restored, slow-rolling vintage FP7 locomotive—one of only 10 remaining in North America. This four-hour excursion takes us on a 20-mile journey through 100 years of history. We’ll view ancient Sinagua Indian ruins in towering cliffs. We’ll travel sturdy trestles and bridges—a testament to the hard work of the men who built them over 100 years ago, and we’ll roll through a manmade 680 foot tunnel that was blasted out of solid rock—the tunnel enveloping passengers in total darkness before the train rolls back into the Arizona sunshine! The confluence of high desert and wetland in the Verde Canyon is populated by a variety of wildlife and waterfowl. One of the greatest highlights of the Verde Canyon Railroad is seeing bald eagles, cohabiting with the daily passing of the train. Our springtime tour may offer us a remarkable opportunity to view eaglets snuggled in their nests. This slow-rolling journey is breathtaking with all the changing seasons, but most spectacular in the springtime. We’ll enjoy lunch on self, in the charming train depot before boarding the train. First-class passengers experience spacious living room-style seating, near panoramic windows. Other amenities include a champagne toast upon boarding, full service cash bars, table service and complimentary appetizers. This is a wonderful tour! *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours. This outside contractor does not currently have any vehicles which can accommodate persons who are non-ambulatory.

OLD RIM ROAD SCENIC DRIVE


We’re off to travel Arizona’s Forest Road 300—The Old Rim Road. Although there are many ways to approach this journey, we’ll begin in Payson, where we’ll enjoy some scrumptious Mexican food on self, at El Rancho Mexican Restaurant, a great favorite with not only the locals, but also Arizona Highways—who named El Rancho one of the top 25 restaurants in Arizona. The food’s delicious, the price is right and the menu offers something for everyone. After lunch our journey really begins. We’ll make our way along the Mogollan Rim, a massive wall of rock that is thousands of feet tall and hundreds of miles long, beginning at the Arizona/ New Mexico border and stretching across most of the state. Pronounced “muggy-on” by locals, the Rim offers some of the most breathtaking, jaw dropping scenery that the state of Arizona has to offer. The scenery is always changing as we travel through the world’s largest stand of Ponderosa pines, and intersect what was once the General Crook Trail—a historic wagon route that was used in the 1880’s to provide support for General Crook in the U.S. Army’s war against the Apaches. We’ll travel through the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest into the Coconino National forest—with an eye out for elk and mule deer, as we make our way into the Pine/Strawberry region where our road ends. We’ll make a pit stop before hightailing it back to the Valley. This is a wonderful springtime tour. Don’t miss it! *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

We’ll enjoy a scenic loop tour back to the Valley taking us through the Salt River Canyon, a 2,000-foot-deep river canyon, so gorgeous and loaded with history that it is often referred to as the Little Grand Canyon. This stretch of highway is broad and well-paved offering some of the most dramatic views ever seen from a bus window!

MURDER AND A MEAL @ AZ BROADWAY – HOW TO MURDER A MILLIONAIRE


All handsome, eligible Dirk Dagwell wanted was a bride, so off to cable access TV he went to be the latest schmuck on the morally bankrupt show How to Marry a Millionaire. It’s star – tacky host Remus Philbrick who would have been a better fit as a greasy nightclub comic on a cruise ship in 1972. The “lovely” bachelorettes invited onto the show to fight to win themselves a millionaire are Tanya, (who got on the sexy line twice and bypassed the brains line altogether); Carleen, (been there, shot that); and Darma (sweetie-perfection is annoying). Who will he choose to be his bride? And will it be the last choice he ever makes? Come join in the fun; maybe even be a part of the show. Murder & a Meal features a fun, theatrical story told by actors while participants enjoy a three course meal over a 2-hour period. Members of the audience become participants in the play as the story progresses. There are multiple breaks during the show, dinner include a soft beverage, salad, bread, entrée and dessert. Bar service and cocktails are available throughout the show from your service staff. The price does not include gratuity and there are mini envelopes if you would like to tip your server

SYCAMORE CANYON SCENIC DRIVE


Arizona is a land of deep canyons, with the Grand Canyon being the obvious largest, and Sycamore Canyon the second runner-up. The journey to Sycamore Canyon is spectacular—winding through the Kaibab National Forest, past thick stands of ponderosa pines and heart stopping views of the San Francisco Peaks. Sycamore Canyon is 21 miles long, and a protected wilderness area, with breathtaking scenery in every direction. There are no roads or campgrounds within the gorge, but plenty of sycamores, a variety of evergreens and wildlife galore. We’ll stop for lunch on self in Williams before heading into the Canyon—a town so charming that historic Route 66 is its Main Street—and you’ll have plenty of restaurants to choose from. This is a great summer tour! Get out of the heat and come with us. *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.

SOUTH RIM OF THE GRAND CANYON


The Grand Canyon, one of the most remarkable natural wonders in the world, is visited by millions of tourists annually. There are two public areas of Grand Canyon National Park, the North and South Rims, with the South Rim being the most accessible and visited, also offering the deepest and widest views of the Grand Canyon. Just a hop-skip-and-a-jump away, we’ll arrive at the South Rim with plenty of time to enjoy an early lunch at the restaurant of your choice. The South Rim offers many restaurant options—from fine dining at El Tovar, to the Maswik Food Court—you decide. After lunch we’ll jump on the South Rim shuttle bus to explore the most spectacular scenic views and other points of interest—many accessible only by shuttle. This is a remarkable one-day tour! We’ll leave the Valley with a stop for coffee and goodies, along with a few pit-stops on our way to the Grand Canyon. Plan to leave a little earlier and arrive home a little later—just don’t miss out on the fun! *This trip is offered in conjunction with Kindred Tours.
