Being in the warm sun of Arizona for the week was great! Flexibility - in what I wanted to partake in / or not partake in is my kind of trip. Thanks Road Scholar. karen borchardt


Although I had been to Scottsdale 25 years ago, this program really was enlightening. I learned about an area that I knew little about. If you love museums, wandering in a new place on your own, botanical garden visit, you will be delighted by this program. Also, best food out of 10 trips I have taken with Road Scholar.


he Phoenix-Scottsdale trip far exceeded my expectations in terms of the variety of places we visited -and information I learned. The museums were first rate, the accommodations super and the group leader great!


Well run program with a great introduction to various museums in the greater Phoenix area.

nice trip


We just took our first Road Scholar trip - Signature Cities, Phoenix. At least 4 of the "highlights" would have almost justified the trip alone. I came away realizing that there are so many places I could visit, enjoy, and learn from with Road Scholar.


I've been coming to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area for years to visit family, and had previously visited some of the locations on the itinerary. However, the opportunity to see recently opened museums and have docent conducted tours made the experience much more valuable. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum!!


It was fun to see many new facilities in Phoenix and Scottsdale. If you haven’t been there for a few years, consider this trip. The Musical Instrument Museum, organized by the countries of the world, is especially impressive.

This was ;my first experience with Road Scholar. I will definitely be looking for my next trip. For tailored to individual/group interest, convenience, affordability and overall value, I highly recommend this service.


This was my first Road Scholar. Went to Scottsdale, Az. I enjoyed it very much. Very organized, enjoyed the museums. Very nice hotel, nice people and great food. We had a cookout in the dessert which was great fun.


The Signature City Phoenix-Scottsdale is an outstanding program! I loved the Musical Instrument Museum, the Desert Botanical Garden, the Phoenix Art Museum and the week ended with a BBQ campfire in the middle of the desert. Who knew that Phoenix had so much to offer?


Outside of the awesome Grand Canyon we were not familiar with either Phoenix or Scottsdale. Phoenix has a superb and innovative art museum with a Kusama lighted art exhibit. The new-ish Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) will knock your socks off! The site of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West in the desert is absolutely superb. You'll love the guided tour of the desert gardens as well; and walk away with an appreciation for the varieties of cacti as never before. The Western Spirit museum in Scottsdale is a delight with handsome art, pottery, as well as a superb collection of old western movie posters. Go West young (or old) man/woman!! We couldn't believe our luck when we Easterners did the trip in early Feb leaving the cold behind us--80-degree temps and sunny!!!
