Immerse yourself in history on this American Southwest culture tour while you visit Native American reservations and pueblos, Santa Fe and many typical Wild West towns. The cultures of the Southwest are varied and unique, with many different traditions, art forms and lifestyles. Our knowledgeable tour guides will provide you with insights into the history of the areas you visit. Gain first-hand experiences as you travel with a small group of other interested individuals and walk and hike the path of settlers and Native Americans on our route from Arizona through New Mexico and part of western Texas.
Starting in Phoenix, Arizona, the tour leads through the Sonoran Desert – the most species-rich desert of America – with Saguaro cacti as tall as trees, and fascinating landscapes in three states. We experience remote deserts in Texas, like Llano Estacado, where we overnight at an oasis with warm natural springs, used for centuries by the area’s native peoples. We visit historic military forts and observe the surviving cultural legacies of many different native peoples at the Gathering of Nations, the largest Pow Wow in the western U.S. Further highlights include the magnificent landscapes of the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park, the magical dunes of White Sands, New Mexico, Saguaro National Park, and a tour of the underworld at Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
