The Ultimate Grand Canyon Small Group Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff
Grand Canyon day trip review
, Dec 2019
DEC 28 2019 tour of Grand Canyon South Rim and Monuments, led by Arizona Tours Guide Cindy Morrow revealed the Grand Canyon in 23 degree winter splendor with crisp snow and clarity. National Park Service did a great job keeping roads and parking accessible. A once in a lifetime treat, Cindy made sure the tour group of nine was comfortable and accommodated. Narration on road trip highlighted natural features along the way and in the Grand Canyon. Recommended!
Due to weather, our tour deviated from seeing some of the highlights because of road closure. However, our tour guide Ty was full of knowledge from 27 years of experience. We were 9 in the van and Ty picked us up right on time. The sun came out often and the snow gave the Canyon so much more character. We had a great hot lunch with many different offerings. Because of road conditions, and we had never been to the Grand Canyon, taking this tour was the way to go if you're not familiar with this area. Thank you Ty for the wonderful day and great information.

I had only 2 days to be at the Grand Canyon before needing to be back on the road to California. Using Flagstaff as a base of operations, The Grand Canyon Ultimate Tour was just what I needed to get the most out of Day 1. The tour included just the right amount of incredible views at a comfortable and efficient pace, allowing time to soak up the ambiance and even a short hike. Tim Wilson was an extraordinary guide. His commentaries allowed us to get the most out of the experience. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and things related including hiking, camping, rafting, area history and Indian cultures.
I would highly recommend this tour for so many reasons. Our tour guide, Dustin, was incredibly well informed about anything we asked him. Even on the ride to the Grand Canyon he gave us the history of things we were seeing. I don't know if we could have easily navigated where we were going without the tour and the history was amazing. We saw old ruins and visited the geology museum and we would not have understood a lot of it without our guide. He even explained about the wildlife and informed us about the plants in the area. And we got to experience lunch on the Navajo reservation. A perfect day!

Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Day Tour from Flagstaff
, Feb 2020
This is a fantastic trip to see some beautiful unique places. We enjoyed it in the off-season when there were no crowds and that made the experience even better. Our tour guide Matt was knowledgeable, friendly and really made this trip a memorable adventure.
Our guide Dave was relaxed, accommodating and knowledgeable. Horseshoe Bend is now accessed through a an easy walking track and is quite a sight to see. The real highlight of the trip was Antelope canyon. Something definitely worth seeing (Microsoft definitely used shots from there). Our guide Stacey even helped us get the best shots re lighting (sorry no option here to attach an example).
Explore Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend on this guided day trip from Flagstaff. Meet up your Navajo guide and begin to descend into the canyon, the rays of sunlight make for beautiful photos.

In the Birds of Prey show, get face to face with and learn more about hawks, owls, falcons and other raptors. Fun for the entire family.
This is the best tour I have taken! I have been on tours of the Grand Canyon that we’re good; this is outstanding! Evan designed a trip with unique perspectives and terrific explanations about history and geology. He was engaging, attentive and knowledgeable. Would give it 10 stars if I could. Thanks. Hope to be back next year.

Matt was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The Grand Canyon was amazing. We could have driven the same route in our car, but not had nearly the wonderful and rich experience as we had with our group. My teen daughter and I came away with a deeper understanding of the canyon and the history of the native and nonnative Americans. Great day and amazing pictures to our day.

Antelope Canyon Original Tour and Horseshoe Bend from Flagstaff
Absolutely AMAZING tour!!!!
, Jan 2020
We picked this particular tour because they picked you up at your Flagstaff hotel and had positive reviews with great photos. I am SO GLAD we picked this tour company and SO GLAD we were lucky enough to have Chris as our tour guide.
Chris picked us up at the hotel lobby, got us signed in, gave us bottles of water and began the tour. He was well-spoken, well-traveled, very knowledgeable, very entertaining and obviously enjoys his job! He kept us all informed and entertained.
The Horseshoe Bend portion was really cool. The walk in is about 2/3 miles and is mostly downhill. My 76 year old Mom had a little trouble with the walk out as it is a slow, upward walk. She did fine overall
The jewel of this tour is Antelope Canyon. It exceeded our expectations in every way!! Since it is located on Navajo land, you must be escorted by a certified Navajo guide. Chris was well informed about the process, got us to the Navajo Tour office with time to spare, and got us registered and on the first tour van for the afternoon, a big plus so you can be in the first group entering the canyon. We were lucky enough to have Nate as our Navajo guide. He actually helped us program our iPhones to the correct settings to maximize photo quality in the canyon. He took mine and others’ and adjusted the settings. He escorted us into the canyon and we immediately began taking photos. Nate would tell us where to stand for the best photos, would actually take photos of us, and helped us take photos by ourselves. He ushered us through the canyon pointing out the unique characteristics of the canyon and how it formed. He was absolutely fantastic!!! We got amazing photos. This place is like no where on Earth!!! And believe it or not, the photos don’t really do it justice!!
After the canyon tour, Chris took us to get souvenirs and drove us back to Flagstaff, continuing tour talk the whole way! We loved it!! He covered history, geography and geology of the whole area!!! Fascinating!!!
Chris also made recommendations for dinner. We ate at Black Bart’s and it was phenomenal!!
I can not recommend this tour company (Arizona Tour Travel) and this tour guide(Chris) enough!! What a fantastic day!!!
Tim was an awesome tour guide, very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about the area. It's nice that there are plenty of stops on the way so you're never stuck on the bus for too long. I highly recommend this tour and would gladly go on another tour with Tim myself!

Bought ticket online. Registration on arrival was easy. Arrived about 6:00pm. Was offered a tour straight away. Take the tour of the observatories - very insightful. Going in the dark was special.

It was fun, but if you're not used to altitude you may be short of breath on some of walking you need to do. The guides and employees are friendly and helpful.
