On May 31, 2014,  the Santa Fe Art and Culinary Tour begins a five day/four night tour starting at the Albuquerque, New Mexico airport.  As your private tour guide, I will whisk you off to Santa Fe where you will stay at the enchanting Hotel Santa Fe, owned and operated by the Picuris Pueblo.  The hotel has the highly rated Amaya Restaurant which mixes classic technique, contemporary flair, and fresh seasonal ingredients from the cold rivers of Alaska to the Great Plains. Chefs Patrick Kline and Walter Dominguez select superb ingredients and weave them together in a style highlighting local pueblo and Northern New Mexican influences.  And,  Amaya is just the start!  Each day, you can enjoy New Mexico cuisine intermixed with visits to the best art galleries of Canyon Road & the Downtown Historic Plaza, tour multiple art and historical museums, enjoy winding walking tours, and shop Santa Fe style.  It’s a fun filled tour designed for those who love food and art! santa-fe-attractions-photos-traveler

Antelope and Glen Canyons Tour in October

October is one of the best months to visit Antelope Canyon, Glen Canyon, and Lake Powell in Northern Arizona.  I will be leading a tour starting from the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix on Friday, October 11 and returning Sunday, the 13th.  Check this out!

This opportunity is a chance in a lifetime to get those perfect photos.  For example, we will experience a sunset evening cruise on breathtaking Lake Powell, climb down into Antelope Canyon with our Navajo guide telling ancient stories as we go;  and later, it’s a raft trip on the Colorado River near Glen Canyon Dam.  No cameras are allowed on the boats. I wonder why?

Sunday, we will be guided through the actual Glen Canyon Dam learning it’s history and how it operates today.  And if we are lucky, we may also have time to hike up through the sandy trail to the Horseshoe Bend overlook for a shutterbug’s dream advantage point above The Colorado River.

Join me on this magnificent tour.  To read more or sign up, contact Affinity Group Tours of Phoenix.  See link below.
