Small-Group Deluxe Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Trip

Journey through the beautiful Arizona landscapes on this small-group trip from the Phoenix-Scottsdale area! Visit the Grand Canyon and explore Sedona on an exciting full-day tour.

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.

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.

What a fantastic day! This tour really allows you to take in the breath-taking scenery of Sedona, The Grand Canyon, as well as Northern Arizona in a relaxing environment. Our tour guide, Mark, was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. He picked us up at our hotel right on time, enthusiastically interacted with us the entire trip, and gave us tons of information on the areas we passed by and stopped at. He is truly passionate about his job which is refreshing to see. Even the lunch we received was excellent. If you are staying in the Phoenix area and want to see the Grand Canyon, this tour is the only way to go!

I did the day trip to the Gand Canyon with my two kids. Our guide Charlie was extremely knowledgable and made the journey as interesting as the final destination. He had a great sense of humor and kept us thouroughly entertained. I would absolutely recommend this trip. It is well worth the money and the Grand Canyon is a must see.

I had a wonderful time on the trip. Our guide, Mark, was extremely knowledgeable about not only the Grand Canyon, but also the history, culture, geography, and ecology of Arizona. The van was comfortable, and lunch was quite tasty. We stopped at four site seeing areas in the Grand Canyon that gave us time to explore the rim and take some pictures. The tour was planned very well and I would do it again!

I loved the route and the driver. We happened to have a great group of friendly, easy going people in the tour. I would have liked one or two more stops along the canyon. I will use Viator again and recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their eyes on the landscape and not the road.

Well worth the money, the van was comfortable with leather captains seats and our tour guide was very informative! Having an experienced driver allowed us to take in all of the breathtaking stops without concerns of navigating winding roads and figuring out best places to stop or obtain necessary services. Tour guide was very organized, very familiar with all stops, had parking, drop-off, frequent bathroom stops and eating locals all preplanned and running smoothly. This is a great trip for those who want a highlight tour, just be aware that Sedona and Red Rocks stops are necessarily very brief, 20 min-1 hr, since there is so much to cover in one day. Our only mild complaint was that the air-conditioning on our van was not working well, somewhat of a problem for those unaccustomed to AZ heat. I trust this issue was addressed after our tour. Everything else about the trip was perfect and worth the cost!
