America's Cowboy Country Itinerary
Travel around the USA, from the casino mecca of Las Vegas, through the desert of Arizona and towards Monument Valley. See the Grand Canyon, witness the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles and experience the cowboy spirit of the USA.
Day 1 Las Vegas
Kick off this American adventure in style in the world’s capital of gambling, where the casinos provide a lot more than just blackjack tables and pokies. Why not put on a poker face and hit the casino floor, watch a mind-blowing show or stroll the fabulous shopping districts. Famous for all-you-can-eat buffets and a raging nightlife, Vegas has something for everyone.

Day 2 Lake Powell
Leave behind the ‘city on lights’ and enter the desert of Arizona. Enjoy the wide open spaces and sleep overnight in a ranch hand’s bunkhouse at Lake Powell. Relax in a sandstone cave, walk around the area or get active on the lake, whether in flippers or on a kayak or boat.

Days 3-4 Monument Valley
Learn about the Navajo Indians, the largest Native American tribe in the US, at Monument Valley, where more than 200,000 native people live. Go for a walk past giant sandstone pillars and rock pinnacles in this truly unique and breathtaking landscape.

Taking between three and six million years to form, the incredible Grand Canyon is the US's most famous national landmark and stretches 28 km wide, 365 km long and more than 1.6 km deep.

Day 7 Prescott
Once the capital of Arizona, Prescott is now a small town with a whole lot of charm. Stroll though Prescott’s historic downtown and head to Whiskey Row, a place where America’s most famous cowboys and notorious outlaws once came to drink. Perhaps head to Prescott National Forest, see the stunning Willow and Watson lakes or hang about in town and watch a true blue rodeo show.

Days 8-9 Los Angeles
Journey to the ‘City of Angels’ to see the Hollywood sign, shop on Rodeo Drive or laze on Venice Beach. Explore the impressive collection at the Getty Center, including the art works of Van Gogh and Monet, or chase down the city’s best food trucks before this feisty adventure ends.

America's Cowboy Country Reviews
Our America's Cowboy Country trips score an average of 4.55 out of 5 based on 11 reviews in the last year.
America's Cowboy Country, June 2014
The only reason I have given a 4 and not a 5 is due to the booking experience, in particular the pricing. When I first saw the trip it was discounted and I booked my flights on that basis on the Friday afternoon. When I went to confirm my trip booking on the Monday morning the price had gone back to full price. If I had not already booked my flights I might have reviewed my options. In the end there were only 4 people on the trip so the pricing strategy does not seem to have worked in this case. Our small group was actually nice but from previous trip experiences it is better to have a few more numbers for variety.
