The Basics

A scenic drive through beautiful Oak Creek Canyon is well worth the effort whether or not you actually need to travel north from Sedona. Grand Canyon day trips from Sedona pass through the gorge, as do small-group tours of the Sedona area (along with visits to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and Airport Mesa) and multi-day itineraries through Arizona.

Fantastic day, highly recommend!
What an amazing day! Han was our guide and he was simply the best. He shared so much history and knew the best places to take us to catch the best views and pictures. Everything was beautiful. My daughter forgot her hat in the van and I contacted the company and Leonardo was kind enough to meet us and give it back to her. We all had a great experience, thank you for everything!

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Zane was a great tour guide and was knowledgeable about AZ and the canyon. The views were awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed hiking part of the way down the canyon. Our guide had safety tips and did not lose anyone on the tour. We made plenty of bathroom and rest breaks which was greatly appreciated. Would recommend this tour and experience to others.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
We had a wonderful trip to the Grand Canyon. I would reccommend changing the route as due to construction in the Oak Creek Canyon, we lost a lot of time in Sedona.

The tour leader was knowledgable, entertaining and focused on safety throughout. We never felt rushed and had ample time in both areas. The experience at the Grand Canyon and Sedona was breathtaking. Plenty of rest/bathroom stops along the way. Exceeded my expectations

This was a great introduction to Sedona & the Grand Canyon. Kim was great and offered us options to customize our trip. She was able to avoid the most congested areas so we could enjoy the breathtaking views and get some wonderful pictures without hoards of people in the photos. Eat quickly so you have more time to explore Sedona.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
A great experience for me and my fiancé. It was our second year anniversary and I thought it would be great to bring us out here to do something different. We both enjoy the tour very much. Eric was a great tour guide. Always so nice with lots of patience and very knowledgeable about the area. We made several great stops for picture taking. I would highly recommend this service especially for anyone who has never been to the Canyon.

When to Get There

Oak Creek Canyon is stunning year-round, so deciding when to visit is largely a matter of preference. Hikers come to enjoy the desert wildflowers from March to May, while summer brings temperatures warm enough for swimming at Slide Rock State Park or Grasshopper Point. The canyon is particularly impressive in autumn when the oaks amid the evergreen forest display their fall foliage.
