Phoenix & Scottsdale City Tour

As we tour the Valley of the Sun, you will be treated to sights of famous architecture, modern art, desert views, and the individuality that make this desert oasis magical.  This half-day City Highlights tour showcases the largest county by population in Arizona, Maricopa County. Maricopa County has a tremendous diversity of culture, scenery and history on display, set against the backdrop of the Sonoran Desert.
Similar to its desert surrounding, the City of Phoenix and the City of Scottsdale are quite unique. Areas of interest on your Phoenix/Scottsdale City Highlights Tour include South Mountain Park or Camelback Mountain, Arizona Biltmore, Old Town Scottsdale, and Downtown Phoenix. South Mountain and Camelback Mountain are elevated areas from which expansive views of the city can be enjoyed. Downtown Phoenix, home to the historic Capitol building, provides for a unique metro area where sports fans, fashion buffs and history enthusiasts intermingle. Old Town Scottsdale provides guests with numerous options to explore the many art galleries and fashion shops, as well as enjoy some fine cuisine from around the world. The Arizona Biltmore is the only existing luxury hotel with design elements from the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Built in 1929, the Biltmore was immediately crowned the “Jewel of the Desert” and has been the preferred resort for past and present celebrities, heads of state, and champions of business. This famous hotel is nestled within the stunning Biltmore Estates neighborhood, which will also be included on this portion of the tour, providing unique, up-close views of Wright's architectural influences.
