Our Arizona family vacations will have your family awestruck at the natural wonders of the great American West!

World Travel. Family Discovery.

Share the wonders of nature's handiwork together as Tauck takes you behind-the-scenes with filmed narratives by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan who share personal stories of the dreamers, visionaries, and unsung heroes who shaped the preservation of three great national parks of the American West.

See the sun rise over the Grand Canyon with a stay at an inside-the-park lodge right on the rim, and walk along the South Rim with an instructor from the Grand Canyon Field Institute... discover classic Western towns like red-rock Sedona, Arizona... float along the Colorado River on a raft... flightsee over Rainbow Bridge... take a private off-road tour to view colorful slot canyons in the Navajo Nation... view Bryce Canyon's famous hoodoos and ride a horse or mule along its scenic trails with a cowboy... and explore the treasures of Zion National Park!
