Phoenix & Scottsdale City Tour Itinerary

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 Phoenix & Scottsdale City 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.

City Highlights

Similar to its desert surrounding, the Phoenix and Scottsdale are quite unique. Areas of interest on your Phoenix/Scottsdale City Highlights Tour include mountain range views, the Arizona Biltmore, Old Town Scottsdale, Downtown Phoenix and the Arizona State Capitol building. 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 crowned the “Jewel of the Desert” and has been the preferred resort for past and present celebrities, heads of state, and champions of business.

Old Town Scottsdale

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 Southwest USA. Downtown Phoenix, home to the historic Arizona Capitol building, provides for a unique metro area where sports fans, fashion buffs and history enthusiasts intermingle.
