i had a wonderful time. the driver was very informative. I would take another tour with that driver or any other driver. the driver was friendly and caring.
Wonderful trip! Long day but well worth it. Robert was great. Lunch was great. Canyon was stunning. So glad we did it!
I got picked up at 7:20 am, the last hotel pickup and the 12th passenger on a minibus. About half of the passengers chose to take the heli-trip and the other got that extra hour not far away. The helicopter took 7 passengers.
Once we passed the outskirts of Phoenix, the driver passed out sandwich order checklists so we could choose our own and the bread was made that morning. He put in the order over the radio and we picked them up in Sedona where we stopped for 30 minutes. Along the highway our driver narrated about some history which was very interesting.
Once on board the helicopter our seat had been assigned based on our weight. I was given a front seat second in from the door. We were not allowed to bring bags or purses, only cameras, cellphones and a bottle of water. Even though it was winter, our driver had told us it would be on the warm side, and the jackets were stored. We were strapped in and ready to head over the edge into the canyon. The ride was about 50 minutes. I was able to take some video. Afterwards, we had a couple more stops for lookouts. I was dropped back off at 7pm. Great Day!
Mac, the driver.guide, provided great information and didn't overdo his presentations. Truly appreciated his attention to the road when conditions were less than perfect.
This tour was awesome! Our tour guide Jason was great, very knowledgable and friendly.
It was a long day but worth it. I would highly recommend this trip!!
It is long day, but travel is comfortable. Jason was well informed about the area. Would take the trip again but add in the helicopter ride next time!
Our tour was on a cold wintery day in January - there was a fresh 8 inches of snow on the ground. I was worried I wasn't going to see as much of the Canyon as I wanted to, but I had no problem. Our guide Mike was great - I learned a lot from him! Unfortunately our helicopter tour was cancelled due to weather constraints, but Mike kept us moving along and added some extra stops. He was great and I also enjoyed the other people we travelled with. The small group size was perfect.
Had a great trip. Jason was great and knew where to stop for the best views of th GC. His knowledge of the area was great and made the trip better than we expected. Would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the GC up close.
Beautiful seeing the canyon with snow cover! Rob was GREAT. Well worth the money.
Everything about this tour exceeded my expectations. The booking process and follow up by the office to schedule our pickup location and time was very smooth. Our tour guide Montana was prompt with our pickup setting the stage for a great trip. Montana was very knowledgable about all the sites we visited and provided a brief history of the region and the Indian tribes. The tour had a good balance of scenic stops, breaks, and time dedicated to get out and explore the Grand Canyon. I highly recommend this tour.
The tour was awesome! The bus arrived right on time. Lunch was great. The tour bus driver, was great--the details he provided throughout the day gave me a fresh perspective on Arizona. Sedona was beautiful, and I'm still processing the wonder of the Grand Canyon. I'm so happy I did this. I would highly recommend the tour.
Great driver/ tour guide and pleasant trip. Nothing to complain about. Comfy seats. Lunch was excellent sandwich.
And the Grand Canyon was of course awesome. Most of the passengers were from a scientific conference skipping meetings.
Worth the price of not having to drive.
Enjoyed this small group tour a great deal. I was dreading the long drive but the driver made the trip very enjoyable. Close up encounter with a beautiful elk was a highlight! I would, and very likely will, do this trip again.
December 7th was a spectacular day due to the fabulous guide Dan that escorted us on a full day of touring both Sedona and the Grand Canyon.All sights were beyond belief and the tour itself was made even more enjoyable by the wonderful commentary by Dan including identification of every plant and tree in the surrounding area Great tour and thank to Viator for setting us up with the tour company for our escorted tour!!
We highly recommend this guided tour. Our guide Les was not only very knowledgeable of every site we visited, he also provided very interesting information on the local history and culture, especially concerning the Native Americans. The time spent at each site was right.
What a FANTASTIC trip and the tour guide was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and interesting! I would recommend this trip to anyone! And if you get the same tour guide you are extremely lucky!
It was an amazing and excellent tour. Our tour guide, Robert was very knowledgeable and informative. I recommend this tour to everyone.
Rob was terrific, fantastic, excellent. One passenger described it as a trip of a lifetime. I totally agree
Our driver was very informed. He brought a great deal of information to the group. The tour was a long day but everything that was advertised. I would recommend it to anyone.
The trip was great and informative. Our tour guide, Rob shared his great knowledge on the histroy of Arizona as well as all the surrounding areas that kept us interested. If there is one thing that I can make suggestion is to stay a little bit longer in Sedona, it is beautiful out there. Overall, I recommend to join the trip which is really money well spent. Thank you.
FANTASTIC! A most do for people wanting to see some of the natural beauty of the region and are pressed for time. Our guide was knowledgeable and professional.
Our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable of the area, vegetation and wildlife. He pointed out to all of us the best picture spots and made the trip great! I would def book with detours/viator again.
Grand Canyon is beautiful! The tour was incredible, it snowed an hour after we were there so it was really beautiful too even though we couldn't see much until we drove back down. Fascinated by the landscape - the drive up to the canyon from Phoenix is beautiful. Our tour guide Dan knew so much about the local plants and shrubs, and gave us a lot of information as he drove through. It was a combination of history and science combined. The drive back down, we went through Navajo reservation and because AZ is so flat, it was so beautiful!! Couldn't stop taking pictures. The driver picked us up on and dropped us off where we needed to go. There was a baby on the van though, and a couple touristy guys who talked a bit too much and I took the tour after a full week of being talked out due to a work conference, so I wasn't in the mood to make conversation but I probably wouldn't have found them annoying on a regular day. This was just a bad time in that regard I guess. Bring your phone charger the van has outlets and your own snacks if you want to eat healthy. Overall great experience. Do take the shuttle up at the canyon if you have enough time, they show you around really well red line is the best. Have fun!
