Great Trains & Grand Canyons

April 7, 2019 to April 12, 2019

Sedona’s natural scenery makes your heart leap. Nestled among a geological wonderland, its multi-hued stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. This awe inspiring location is yours for five nights on this group tour in Arizona.  You’ll take a scenic trip on the Grand Canyon Railway for an unforgettable ride on one of the restored cars, and hear folklore and tales from a crew who are still bewitched by their spectacular surroundings. You’ll also travel on the Verde Canyon Railway, known as the wilderness train.  Visit Flagstaff, the old mining town of Jerome, enjoy a Chuckwagon dinner on the Blazin’ M Ranch and so much more!  Treat yourself to a bit of the old west!

Depart from Milwaukee to Phoenix, Arizona. Upon arrival in Phoenix and meet your local Tour Director. Board a deluxe motorcoach and travel north to beautiful Sedona. This upscale resort, retirement and artist community is set amongst the red-hued rocks of Oak Creek Canyon. Your home for the next five nights is a picturesque resort style property in the Sedona area. Tonight enjoy a Welcome Dinner with fellow travelers.
