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.
This Grand Canyon day trip from Flagstaff or Sedona is limited to no more than 14 people, ensuring you enjoy a more personalized Grand Canyon experience. The tour blends ancient ruins, lava fields, majestic volcanoes, and amazing views throughout Grand Canyon National Park and the remarkable Painted Desert. Highlights include a drive along the South Rim and East Rim; visits to Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument and Wupatki National Monument; and a Southwestern lunch at a historic Navajo reservation.
Very cool experience, and one that I would ultimately recommend to others. That said, it was a little imbalanced that a party of 2 like my wife and I were placed in uncomfortable dining room chairs at a small and somewhat wobbly table, while a party of 4 was placed in two large and comfortable leather couches facing one another with a larger, lower coffee table in between. In a four hour trip, that makes a difference. Also, some of the best photo opps are not properly noted prior to happening, and require going through another car to the outdoor car, where some folks just stayed the whole time, cutting off the ability to get photos without people on the rail in the background.
Enjoy a 4-hour sightseeing journey by train aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad, which glides through the beautiful wilderness of the American Southwest near Sedona. Nibble light refreshments while traveling on the Verde Canyon Railroad through Arizona’s desert. Ride in a vintage train car or open-air viewing car to get a great perspective on the region’s natural and cultural treasures. See ancient cliff dwellings built by the Native American Sinagua people, historic mining sites and more as your train cruises along a route that follows the Verde River.
Antelope Canyon Original Tour and Horseshoe Bend from Sedona
, Jan 2020
Antelope Canyon and Horse Shoe Bend are stunning and certainly worth a visit. I understand that interest in Antelope Canyon has grown substantially in the last decade, resulting in a bit of a touristy feel. There will be multiple guided groups of 12-14 touring with you. There’s a bit more space at Horse Shoe Bend, but still crowds of tourists even in the off -season. If you’re booking from Sedona, it is a 3 hour drive each way. Plenty of good views to enjoy and Sheldon, our guide, provided great commentary along the way. The passenger van is a bit tight. You’ll be shoulder to shoulder with someone, so make sure it’s someone you like! Lol!
This was by far one of the best excursions I have ever taken. Very well organized with so much pure natural beauty. Antelope canyon is truly indescribable and the pictures don't really do justice to the wonder and beauty. Our guide, Lynn, was both knowledgeable and fun. My only recommendation would be to allow for more time at Horseshoe Bend. I could have used more time there to soak in the beauty. Otherwise it was spectacular. Definitely a "must do"!
Explore the natural wonders of Antelope Canyon, a narrow slot canyon carved by wind and water through the ages. A Navajo guide helps you photograph the shifting light and creamy colors of the sandstone canyon, a must-see amid the splendor of the American Southwest. Views of Glen Dam, Lake Powell, and Horseshoe Bend are included en route from Sedona.
Full Day: Grand Canyon Complete Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff
Informative and comfortable
, Feb 2020
An amazing tour. The Grand Canyon has been at the top of our bucket list forever. This tour was so much more. Mark explained the fascinating story of the geology and native peoples of the broader area in an engaging and easy to understand way. Having never considered myself a “tour” person, I am now a fan for life.
This tour was fantastic! Charlie was our tour guide but he was training two other guides who came from another company Burton and Frank. There were only two other couples in our group and so we weren’t crowded. The guides were so knowledgeable and we learned so much. The stops at the Canyon were awesome. Can’t say enough about the tour and the guides. I would book this tour without a thought.
Get a comprehensive view of the Grand Canyon and surrounding attractions during this day trip from Sedona. Take in views of the Painted Desert, see Native American ruins and volcanic lava flow fields. Ride in comfort along some of the country's most picturesque roads while listening to commentary from your guide. Entrance fees, lunch, and round-trip transportation from Sedona hotels included.

You have to see the canyon to believe it and even then it's hard to wrap your head around it.
, Jan 2020
Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable, a great tour guide! I don't think there was a single question he couldn't answer. So glad we booked this tour. There was so much we would have missed had we done it on our own.
This was a really great day trip from Sedona. Our guide, J. R. had plenty of entertaining stories for the long drive, about 2 hours one way. As a lifelong local, he knew a lot and we enjoyed listening to him. The rim visits were spectacular and J.R. was happy to help us get great pictures. He also brought along a telescope so we could look a little closer. A high point for me was our stop at the Kolb Brothers studio and of course, El Tovar lodge. I felt like the pace was perfect and J.R. knee exactly where to take us for the best photos and experiences.
Our guide Mark is a walking Google! He is a wealth of information. He made the entire bus ride interesting all the way Through. He took us to seven amazing scenic points! Anyone thinking about renting a car, and doing the canyon on your own, don't!
Pack in a full itinerary to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on this day trip from Sedona. Your guide makes stops at the Navajo Nation and Cameron Trading Post as well as scenic overlooks at the Painted Desert cliffs, Little Colorado River Gorge, and Desert View Drive. Round-trip hotel transport is provided from Sedona or Village of Oak Creek.
This is an opportunity to ride an ATV on a track. That part is fun for about 20 mins. However, I suggest that the word tour should be removed from the title. We weren’t told anything about the location or history. Lastly, the operation was unprofessional and haphazard. We were running an hour behind because the ATVs weren’t setup and ready to go.
We really enjoyed our ATV ride and loved our guide, George. We booked the 8am tour on Sunday and were the only two on the tour so it felt like a private tour. The tour lasted 3 hours, and we saw a ton of the area. George took the time to point out all the major places and to keep a pace that was fun but also comfortable as we were inexperienced ATV riders. I’d recommend this tour to anyone new to the Sedona area who is interested in seeing the red rocks from a different angle and covering a ton of ground in a short amount of time.
Unleash your inner adventurer on this ATV tour of western Sedona. Ride down a desert trail surrounded by red-rock bluffs, steep canyon walls, and trees to get to lookouts, vistas, and quiet locations away from the sightseeing crowds. See spots of Sedona that have been used as filming sites for more than 40 movies, and drive up to the top of Skeleton Bone Mountain.
As advertised, we saw the Chapel, Airport Mesa, and a drive-by commentary on sites as we drive past them. Our guide rattled on non-stop about irrelevant things. Several times (while on the road) she slowed the van to a
crawl while she talked.
Her watch was off; the Heritage Museum was closed when we got there.
This tour was absolutely amazing! I became very concerned in the beginning due to a miscommunication however, the situation was quickly and more than adequately rectified. Our tour guide Sheldon, was very knowledgeable of the area as well as accommodating and patient, being that I was traveling with my elderly mother. This was our first tour of the day . It exceeded our expectations so much that their really wasn't a need for the other tour we booked. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Sedona area. Amazing!
Mark was very knowledgeable about the history of the area - fact and fiction alike. He picked us up at our hotel for a private tour. We did not feel rushed at all the sites we stopped at and he went over the time allotted to give us a complete tour. Will definitely recommend him and will call him when I return to the area.
Discover the natural beauty of the Southwestern United States on a highlights tour from Sedona. This tour can be customized to your interests, with highlights such as driving through the incredible scenery of Oak Creek Canyon, a visit to Bell Rock and Airport Mesa, and a stop at Chapel of the Holy Cross, an architectural gem built into a tall rock spire.

Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Small Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff
Enjoyable day to antelope canyon
, Nov 2019
Charlie Torello from Great Ventures Tours was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and made the trip fun. This was our first bus tour we learned so much about the state of
Arizona I didn’t know and I live here. Nate was our Antelope canyon tour guide. He was great setting up our phones for great pictures and knowledgeable. My only complaint is we were rushed way too fast through the canyon because we were told there were many others behind us and we had to stay on schedule for the next tour group.

Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure: Helicopter Tour and Lunch
Best way to go!
, Oct 2019
This was a fantastic day trip! We were picked up at our hotel in Sedona and taken to the airport. On the way our driver, Evan, pointed out and described various sights. At the airport we met our pilot, Wade, who not only flew us to the rim but guided us on what to see and where to go.
First class service all the way from beginning to end. Definitely recommend this tour!

Antelope Canyon is possibly the most-photographed of Northern Arizona’s sandstone slot canyons. The glowing orange and purple colors of the wind and water carved, narrow fissures in Antelope Canyon feature in many beautiful images. Lunch is included in the tour. Some hiking is required. Also includes a trip to Horseshoe bend and Glen Canyon dam.
We were picked by Steve at a hotel at Sedona to Williams, to catch the train which took us to the Grand Canyon. Lunch and water was given out prior to boarding the train. Although the scenery was reasonably good along the way, it became monotonous after a while. We were a bit disappointed that we did not see the Grand Canyon at any time during the train trip. At the Grand Canyon Train Depot, we left the train and was given about three quarter of an hour to see the Canyon. Steve Took us to see the Canyon at several different spots, Bright Angel Trailhead, Pipe Creek Vista, Moran Point and Finally at the Desert View Watchtower. He escorted us on these short hikes, told us valuable information about the Canyon. We saw the Colorado river cutting and running through the Canyon at several sports. I would rate the group van tour as superb, but the train trip as OK. We most strongly recommend Steve Benson as a guide (Great Venture Tours) for the Grand Canyon Tour. He is the best guide we have even seen - knowledgeable, enthusiastic and good time management.
My wife and I wanted to see the Grand Canyon and were pointed by our friend to check out your tour..... and we are glad we did. The train ride was nostalgic and the different views shown to us by our guide could not have been better......
Speaking of tour guides .... Sheldon was nothing short of amazing....full of facts, gracious, and made you feel like you were family.
Do not miss this tour and if want a guaranteed perfect day .... ask for Sheldon!

Self-Drive 1-Day Grand Canyon Whitewater Rafting Tour
Caution! If it goes as planned great, but safety not a priority
, Sep 2019
Caution!! Take waiver seriously. While everything went okay on our individual boat, and sights were phenomenal, another boat in our group flipped in the rapids, tossing all occupants and resulting in 2 serious head injuries and life flight. could have been avoided! No helmets are given out, NO instructions as to what to do if you go in. THE MOTOR FAILED on first boat that flipped and another boat the motor simply FELL OFF into rapids. We had to wait for a new motor to be put on our boat before we departed! No radios to communicate between boats. Ripped dry bags for your belongings. Horrible organization of bus rides to and from boats resulting in hour long waits back to your car. A lot of confusion. It was breathtaking, but go in knowing the risks you take. SAFETY was not a priority.
I booked this trip for my husband’s 30th birthday! It’s was so much better than we imagined! Tips: you will get wet and be in those wet clothes the whole time (but you also dry quickly)! Bring your camera with extra memory! They provide water the entire day and provide lunch! Wear sunscreen and a protective hat, you are in the sun most of the day! Shorty was our guide and he was amazing! Bring cash to tip your guide!
I was a little apprehensive at first because of the price being a little above what I wanted to spend, but man I'm glad I did it. The action started right away with our van driver taking us down the winding dirt roads that lead to the river at a pretty good clip, I kinda felt bad for the van. As soon as we got on the raft our guides introduced themselves, gave a few pointers, don't fall off, etc... and it was into the rapids right away! The hike to the cave and waterfall was pretty short, but it was fun climbing the rocks to reach the cave. We continued downriver and hit a few more good rapids, then stopped at a scenic point to stretch our legs before having lunch on the river between rapids. Once past the bigger rapids the views kept us in awe and constantly snapping pictures. We opted not to take the helicopter out of the canyon early and stayed on the raft and ended up spotting a small herd of bighorn sheep. I really can't say enough good about our guides, very knowledgeable and friendly. We went in mid August, it was very hot. I highly recommend wearing lots of sun protection, hat, balaclava, long sleeve shirt, and lightweight fast drying pants, sunscreen will get washed off pretty quickly.
Add a thrilling outdoor adventure to any Las Vegas or Flagstaff vacation with this guided whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado River. Take a road trip to Peach Springs, Arizona, home of the Hualapai Indians at the gateway to the Grand Canyon. Then, challenge the mighty Colorado River’s varied rapids on a 40-mile (64-kilometer) journey through the canyon, taking a side hike to a travertine waterfall along the way. Helicopter transfer (if option selected) and boxed lunch are included, and an optional hotel pickup and drop-off is available.
Crystal has been blessed as a teacher and spiritual guide. She openly shares her knowledge of the Native American ways which helped me reconnect with the Great Spirit and Mother Earth.
The majority of my tour was spent at the Medicine Wheel. Afterwards, Crystal took the extra time to go to Thunder Mountain and she taught me more about this special area that I have visited many times.
Thank you Crystal for helping me slow down and reground myself. I will continue to move forward with renewed passion, passing on all the knowledge and blessings that I have been given so that others may benefit.

Enjoyed the information shared and the use of the Night Goggles. Saw many images moving about in the distant sky that did not appear to be Airplanes as there was no apparent blinking of multicolor lights visible. Makes one wonder as to the reality of situations presented to us by the Government that we rely on. It really makes one wonder.
Our hostess for this tour was simply delightful and knowledgeable. Our viewing took place on a perfectly clear night. Chatting away with the group was captivating, and we viewed the skies with the coolest gear. Would do it again!!

The Boynton Canyon Trolley Tour was excellent, and our tour guide was super fun. He made jokes, pulled everyone into the conversation, and explained so much about Sedona and its surroundings. I wished this would have gone much longer as I could not get enough of the beautiful views of the mountains. Be prepared to take an extra layer of clothes and a hat as it gets cold with the wind near the winter season. Overall, this was wonderful as you can get a sense of the city before you adventure it on your own. This tour should be the first thing on your travel plans while visiting Sedona.
