National Parks walk
4 - Very Good
“The content of this trip was excellent and we had a very good holiday. There were a few minor deficiencies however, mostly concerning information/communication..... We travelled with others who had booked through Grand American Adventures and they appear to have been better served: they arrived earlier in Las Vegas and had time to explore the city whereas we had time only for a quick dash in, despite the trip notes listing day 1 as a city day. We arrived at the hotel at 6.00pm, just in time for the briefing. We were advised that our guide would expect tips of $5-7 per person per day but we were surprised to hear that there were two guides and they expected $10 per day each. As a couple, therefore, we paid $400 which was way above budget. There were other minor 'annoyances' ... we were told that no meals were included but our GAA were told some breakfasts were included. We were left unsure but caught on eventually and gained a couple of meals! The Alexis Park was disappointing: they took 1 hour to collect us on arrival, the room was shoddy (and the door lock fell off) and it is a good 15 mins brisk walk to town. We thought we might also have been dropped at the airport for our return flight, as we passed the door, rather than return to the Alexis Park and immediately return to the airport. Sedona, the last minute addition to the itinerary, was very nice and we felt we could have made more of the walking opportunities there. A short town tour and lie by the pool was all that was needed!”
National Parks Walks
5 - Excellent
“10 days of the most amazing scenery & fun activities. Each of the National Parks we visited was stunning, and all very different. Good variety of walking trails, lots of photo opportunities, very comfortable hotels, and excellent guides. Quite a full-on itinerary, some long drives, but a perfect way to see a lot of beautiful things in just 10 days.”
A MUST DO HOLIDAY - BOOK NOW!!!!!
5 - Excellent
“I am 61 and have done a fair bit of travelling and hiking. I had seen friend's DVDs of a similar holiday around the Canyons and this inspired me to book with Exodus (we had used various other tour operators previously but were 'Exodus Virgins'.) This holiday far exceeded my expectations in terms of scenery (so different to anything I had previously seen), varied walking (loved Angels Landing), quality of leaders (they were very knowledgeable, informative, great communicators, patient, motivational, inspiring, fun to be around and well organised), accommodation (great accommodation with all facilities a girl could need), transport (new and very comfortable; should be the norm!) and finally a well put together itinerary which enabled us to get the most out of the holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday - to such an extent that I would say it was my best holiday for years and years - ignore any negative comments!!”
Scenery on a grand scale!our 2 tour leaders
5 - Excellent
“Our two tour leaders introduced themselves, and said that their aim was to give us the best holiday we had ever had. They succeeded ! Each day we found ourselves in the most awesome ( and I don't usually use that overused word!) grand scale landscape of desert and rocks, canyons and cacti. Walking in this scenery was the best way to appreciate it.”
Welcome to the neon city in the Nevada desert, Las Vegas. This brash, iconic city offers travellers the chance to explore the over-the-top casinos, see a show, shop or simply indulge in a spot of people watching. A welcome meeting will be held at approximately 18:00 hrs in the evening with free time afterwards to explore the cityscape at night and see the neon lights in all their glory.

*Optional activities:* Go karting US$26 Vegas Strip Helicopter flight US$124 Gun range US$100 (different packages available) Get married in Las Vegas (not legally binding) US$220 Roller coasters US$25-40

*Standard Hotel*
After leaving Las Vegas, drive through the Mojave Desert before arriving in the State of Utah and your destination for today, Zion National Park. Zion Canyon was named by the early Mormon settlers of Utah who thought of it as their `promised land'. Some of the best hiking in the desert terrain of Southwest USA can be found here, in and around the fertile Virgin River Gorge. With a two night stop, you'll have plenty of time to explore. Upon arrival your leaders will take you on a walk by The Narrows, a stunning water channel where you'll witness some outstanding scenery. This makes for the perfect introduction to your American adventure

*Possible hiking options:**Easy:* Emerald Pools | 1.9-6.7km/1-4hrs | elevation 21-68m*Moderate:* The Narrows | Variable up and back trail | elevation 213m*Strenuous:* Angel’s Landing | 8.7km/3-4hrs | elevation 453m

*Standard Hotel*
With a full day to further explore the delights of Zion National Park there are various hikes to choose from, ranging from easy to strenuous. You can warm up by walking on one of the shorter, but equally as beautiful trails from the valley floor to view the magical Emerald Pools. You can also cool off from the summer sun by exploring the Riverside Walk but you'll need to bring (your own) wetsuit style boots with you. The challenging option is to ascend 760 meters (2,500ft.) to experience unbeatable panoramic views of the entire national park from the top of Angels Landing. Angels Landing is definitely not for the faint-hearted although, if you can hold your nerve on this fairly strenuous trail, fortune certainly favours the brave.

*Standard Hotel*
Driving out of Zion National Park you'll climb in elevation to almost 8,296ft and traverse a high plateau to Bryce Canyon National Park. Bryce Canyon is a fascinating natural amphitheater of pink, orange and white sandstone spires, known locally as hoodoos. There are a variety of scenic overlooks and trails that range from easy to moderate in difficulty. The Navajo or Peek-a-Boo Loop trails will enable you to hike right in amongst these unique rock formations with your tour leader. Some of you may prefer to remain on the rim and photograph the ever-changing shadows and hues as the sun makes its way across the wide-open sky. The inspiring hoodoos will make a lasting impression and leave you yearning for more.

*Possible hiking options:**Easy:* Rim Trail | 1.5-3km/0.5-1.5hrs | elevation 10m*Moderate:* Navajo Loop and Queens Garden | 2.4km/1.5-2hrs | elevation 167m*Strenuous:* Peekaboo Loop | 8.5km/3-4hrs | elevation 473m

*Other optional activities:* Western horseback riding at Bryce US$65-$90

*Standard Hotel*
Observe the obscure rock formations of Goblin Valley State Park before arriving at Arches National Park. Stunning red sandstone arches have been created over millions of years by the whipping winds that brush down the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. The park offers leisurely hikes through spectacular sandstone landscapes with intriguing names like the Devil's Garden. One of the more widely recognised arches and by far the most visited is Delicate Arch, a 65ft., freestanding arch that has become one of Utah's most famous icons. Alternatively, some of you may choose to spend the afternoon `off the trail' experiencing the charms of Moab - the small eclectic town that serves as the gateway to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Enjoy a visit out to Canyonlands National Park and that iconic view at Dead Horse Point of the Colorado River snaking its way through the water channels.

*Standard Motel*
Walking in Arches N.P. or optional activities

*Standard Motel*
Canyonlands N.P and free time.

Today you travel south-east to the Navajo Nation's greatest treasure - Monument Valley. A sacred land to those who call it home, the red sandstone monoliths have been the backdrop to countless Western movies. After arriving at the hotel, you set out on a backcountry 4x4 (vans in winter) driving tour, heading deep into the heart of the valley. After stops to photograph both the famous and lesser-known sights in the park, you come to 'the end of the road'. Your local Navajo guide will then lead you even deeper into the park, where you'll visit places that very few non-Native Americans ever to get to see. Finish your day with yet another unforgettable sunset in the valley.

*Standard Hotel*
On to Grand Canyon National Park; one of those rare places that has yet to be adequately described, painted or photographed in its entirety. This incredible spectacle is difficult to comprehend, even as you stand at the rim or hike down into the canyon. Carved over several millennia, this massive wonder of nature is 277 miles (445 km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide and over one mile deep (1.6km). Snaking through the canyon floor is the mighty Colorado River, which runs 1,450 miles (2,330km) through seven US states and two Mexican states.Watch as the sun sets on this incredible place and attempt to comprehend this canyon's staggering proportions and power. There are many rim trail walks that you can enjoy using the parks transport, as well as the park ranger's guided nature walk, or you may just wish to sit in quiet contemplation on the edge of this natural wonder. However, with a full free day we highly recommend lacing up your hiking boots and walking the Bright Angel Trail down to Plateau Point. For a unique bird's eye view, why not opt for a scenic flight over the canyon, which offers perspectives that cannot be seen when visiting on foot.NB: Grand Canyon National Park regulations limit group size and do not allow guided hikes. Your tour leaders will provide briefings, directions and maps, but are not permitted by the National Park Service to walk with you on the trails.

*Possible hiking options:**Easy:* Rim Trails: Amount of hiking differs depending on where you begin and finish / Elevation varies approximately 200m*Moderate:* Indian Garden Campground: 7.7km round trip/3-4 hours (with lunch stop) / elevation 933m*Strenuous:* Plateau Point: 15.2km round trip/7-8 hours / elevation 900m

*Other optional activities:* Grand Canyon helicopter flight ( ) US$254-$284

Nowhere else in the world will you find as many resort hotels, clubs and all-you-can-eat buffets, making Las Vegas the perfect place to celebrate an amazing trip.This tour ends at our gateway hotel in Las Vegas at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book your post-tour accommodation if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.
