This fun and educational Arizona gift experience, a full day coach tour with stunning desert backdrops, is a fantastic way to understand local culture, while presenting a myriad of photographic opportunities. You’ll be picked up from your hotel in either Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe or Mesa Arizona and travel along the Apache Trail into the Sonora Desert and the Superstition Mountains, headed for the first stop, Tortilla Flat, the last remaining stagecoach stop on the trail and named for a nearby butte shaped like, a tortilla of course. With a population of just six at the time of the last census, this is about as remote as it gets.
Moving on, you’ll drive to beautiful Canyon Lake, a popular fishing spot on the Salt River. Here you’ll board the famous Dolly Steamboat, a handsome replica of a classic sternwheeler, for a 90-minute cruise on the lake - keep your camera to hand because the views are simply sensational. Before heading back, there’s time for a journey into the desert where your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about Arizona’s state tree, the Palo Verde, and the immense, iconic Saguaro cactus that can reach as high as 70 feet tall.
