Ultimate Grand Canyon Day Trip from Flagstaff or Sedona

Ultimate Grand Canyon Day Trip from Flagstaff or Sedona

This tour covers a lot of ground in and around Grand Canyon National Park, so its an early morning pickup from your Flagstaff or Seodna hotel to kick off your day of travel via mini coach.

Wupatki National Monument is your first major stop. As your guide will explain, the ancient Native American civilization of Sinagua lived here for 400 years. Then ancient desert dwellers. witnessed the dramatic eruption of Sunset Crater Volcano nearly a millennium ago, which destroyed their homes and forced them out. Your tour includes a visit to the lava fields at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.

Take a break from touring with a stop for lunch at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The view of the Little Colorado River Gorge from the deck here is especially striking.

After lunch, re-board your  mini-coach to head into the Grand Canyon for an afternoon of exploring this magnificent natural wonder. You'll stop at lookout points along the canyon's East Rim and South Room for dramatic vistas of gorges below. There's time at leisure for exploring on your own at your own pace.

Throughout the entire day, whether you're exploring by foot or on the mini coach, your expert guide will teach you about the history, archaeology, geology and flora and fauna of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area.

Excellent tour. Very informative and entertaining at the same time. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the areas we covered. Not quite enough time in the Grand Canyon but still very well done.

I am very happy to have chosen this tour. The guide was extremely informative and excellent host for the day. We got to see lava flows, snow peaks and Indian ruins that we might not have seen if travelling on our own and since I wasn't driving I got to view the changing surrounding scenery all the better.

This was the first tour we have ever been on and we had a great time. Chris, our tour guide and driver made sure we were taken care of and was very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. He was a fountain of information and was never without a word to say. The 10 hours from Flagstaff went by fast. The tour not only takes you to three Grand Canyon overlooks, but we also stopped at Sunset Crater, Wapatki Ruins, and the famous Cameron Trading Post. We heartily recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Chris. You are the BEST!
