We are going to Scottsdale 2 days early. I do not want to duplicate what Tauck provides. What does Tauck do on monday in Scottsdale if anything on our way out of town?
I don’t remember doing anything with Tauck in Scottsdale. It was leisure time, the welcome dinner and then off to Sedona the next morning. We took this trip in 2015 and it is one of my favorites.
With the exception of lagniappes (surprise extras), pretty much everything you get is listed in the itinerary. Looking at yours, the only thing you get in Scottsdale is the welcome dinner (your tour starts with this), a night in the hotel and breakfast. Then it's off to Sedona. So nothing to conflict with in Scottsdale.
Use your free time to stock up on sunscreen and personal cooling systems. More power to ya. I can barely travel to AZ in October.
