A personal tour of Phoenix, Scottsdale + Botanical Gardens
A popular tour + a visit to the popular Desert Botanical Gardens! Enjoy a unique introduction to our metropolis in the desert. During your time with me we will chat about the history of Phoenix & Arizona on our way into Downtown Phoenix, catching the highlights of our beautiful land. We'll proceed to the State Capitol area viewing the memorials from the USS Arizona from Pearl Harbor either from the vehicle or via short stroll. We will then wind up our tour with a stop at the Desert Botanical Gardens - If desired we can conclude with a drive through Old Town Scottsdale to view the shopping eating areas. This is a great introduction to the area & would give you a great overview of Arizona!
