What You Can Expect
Sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic drive through the Sonora Desert for a day of amazing scenic diversity. Travel north to Sedona and see Arizona’s iconic saguaro cactus. Admire the desert scenery before reaching the world-famous Red Rock country. Take a break, stretch your legs and enjoy time for photos before journeying to Grand Canyon.
Based on time, your picnic lunch will either be served in Sedona or at the Grand Canyon.
Take in scenic views of the Oak Creek Canyon from the highway and see the San Francisco Peaks among the seemingly endless Ponderosa Pine Forest. Drive up 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) and arrive at the stunning Grand Canyon National Park. Spend at least three hours with your knowledgeable guide exploring the widest and deepest part of the canyon, which stretches 277 miles (445 km) long. Visit the El Tovar Hotel and Hopi House in Grand Canyon Village, and enjoy multiple scenic lookout points along the East Rim Drive. Take time to shop, take a walk along the canyon’s rim, enjoy photo opportunities and visit cultural exhibits along the rim.
As you leave the Grand Canyon, marvel at the vistas across the Painted Desert as you enter the largest reservation in America, the Navajo Nation. Your guide will introduce you to the Navajo region, and you’ll enjoy views of the Little Colorado River Gorge. Visit the Navajo Trading Post before returning through the Colorado Plateau. Then, enjoy a scenic ride back to the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.
Pictures and words cannot describe the majesty of the Grand Canyon. It was breath taking and awe inspiring. We took advantage of many different view points and were given ample time to enjoy them. Our guide, Rick, shared much information that made our experience even more memorable.
This was an amazing tour to take out of Phoenix. A full day with early morning pick-up from a hotel near our house rental. The driver/guide, Richard was informative and personable, as well as an excellent driver. His stories and information made the long drive fly by. The stop in Sedona was just long enough to do a quick walk around the town's main street, get a taste of the atmosphere and do a real quick shop in one of many art shops. Once near the GC he told us about the helicopter ride which all but 2 in the van took. This was the highlight of the experience. 55 minutes of OMG sights above the canyon. Our pictures and videos are spectacular. We even got to see a herd of elk grazing around the roads on the way back.The lunch of sandwiches picked up in Sedona were delicious, enough for a late afternoon snack on the way back by way of a different route.Interesting shopping at a large Trading Post stop on the way back and a chance for conversation with the other guests on the small, comfortable van. We highly recommend this tour with the added helicopter ride once there!
