what's your refund policy?
Time is money. This itinerary is designed to save the guesswork of what to do, what to see, and where to sleep. In addition, the parks are in remote areas where food won't be found for miles. Rather than feeling tired and hangry, the itinerary guides you on where you can pick up food to go and where to shop for food. Eliminate the stress and FOMO of missing out on the must do and see's of the parks, and purchase this itinerary!
Will this save me any money?
Absolutely! You'll still need to sleep, eat, and get from spot to spot. You'll find all that in our itinerary and more! While there are a few advanced hikes listed in the itinerary, we offer alternate options as well. We've also packed in the view points we visited, and how to structure your day to maximize your trip and do everything you want to do.
I don't like to hike. Will I still find value in this itinerary?
A lot! You're in for a sightseeing treat! The Mighty Colorado River is the real MVP of the Southwest having spent millions of years carving the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and more! This itinerary replicates our adventure to ensure you see it all!
What is there to do in the american southwest?
This itinerary breaks down everything in one PDF guide. The itinerary adds even more value by sharing hotels we stayed at, hotels we considered, places to eat, and places nearby to consider. We provide routes we took and alternative routes so you can decide specifically what you want to do. The itinerary breaks down the length of hikes and drives. You don't have to underestimate time you need at any one place because you feel rushed to go to the next place only to realize you wish you spent more time someplace else or could've spent more time someplace else. Our podcast episodes tell you what we did, but not to the level of detail you'll find within our itinerary.
