Jonathon gave us a absolutely wonderful tour of the Grand Canyon. My 86 year old mother-in-law was with us and Jonathon made sure she was accommodated in every way. He was an expert guide in knowing which vantage points were the best and what time of day they would be least crowded. He set up a tripod at one of the stops to let us see the Colorado River rapids from close up. Fantastic! I cannot recommend this tour enough. 5 stars for sure!

Our family of four was on a quick trip, staying in Good Year, AZ and had one day to visit the Grand Canyon and Sedona. The weather was great and we felt very lucky to have found Steve with Arizona Scenic Tours. The convenience of being picked up and dropped off at our hotel and having a mini-van with just our family was unparalleled. Steve was knowledgeable of Arizona history and fun facts of the places we visited. He was very accommodating with rest stops and giving us time to stretch our legs. Even though the day trip is very long, we found that with Steve's help, we were able to see the major points of interest for these areas. Yes, we will use a service like this again! We liked the ease of booking, the stress of not having to drive through areas we have never traveled, and convenience of being taken to the popular sites. Steve had a cooler in his van with drinks and allowed us to bring our own snacks and food items that allowed us to save money on food. We would recommend travelers bring electronics, books or games to pass the time during all the driving our boys did sleep some of the way home. The tour did have a DVD player and satellite music available. Thanks, Steve and Viator for a fabulous trip.

Great trip to the Grand Canyon from Phoenix.
Mike was an excellent tour guide/driver. Very knowledgeable along the way about the landscape/geology/flora/fauna.
We felt safe and informed the entire trip. And we DIDN'T have to drive!
The one negative was lack of legroom in the mid seats.
Great trip!

We had a great day! We went on a five person tour and was well worth it. Be sure you check the weather before you go so youre dressed appropriately. We had originally booked just the Grand Canyon, but Steve suggested adding Sedona and am glad we took his advice! Mike was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the time in the car entertaining. We had never been to Sedona or the Grand Canyon before, and we werent disappointed. Thanks for a phenomenal day that well never forget!!

The Grand Canyon is an amazing natural wonder. Thankfully my husband and I planned ahead for our visit. We were staying in Scottsdale, AZ and knew the temperature at the GC could be 25 degrees COLDER and it could be windy. It had snowed 2 days prior. We had warm, layered clothing, down jackets, hats, gloves, and boots. Two other people on our tour only had sweatshirts -- they had to buy fleece jackets. Viator connected us with Arizona Scenic Tours and the owner, Steve, and our tour guide, Mike, were terrific. They specialize in small groups, so no headsets were needed. They fully explained the long drive to the GC, the stop at Montezuma's Castle, the short stops to eat on our own and fit in as many GC rim overlook stops as possible. Mike definitely knew the ins and outs of the GC and how to avoid the crowds --- and he was spot on. It was a 13-hour trip but the conversation never waned and Mike filled the ride with a vast amount of stats and enlightening information. We thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Noel was an excellent tour guide.

Noel picked us up at the Phoenician and took us on the itinerary as planned. He was polite, knowledgeable and easy-going. I highly recommend a private tour such as this we used the entire minivan for our own family as we were able to control bathroom breaks, lunch choice, etc. Scottsdale to Sedona to the Grand Canyon and back to Scottsdale is a huge itinerary for 13.5 hours in December we simply didn't have enough daylight hours to get the most out of the Grand Canyon experience. If we do another winter trip we would go to either Sedona or the Grand Canyon in one day - but not both. I highly recommend Arizona Scenic Tours and our tour guide, Noel.

Mike is an amazing tour guide and you can feel, that he enjoys his work! The trip to Sedona first was absolutely recommendable. A fantastic scenery and wonderful color. The time we spent there was pretty good calculated. About Grand Canyon we liked the spots and the beautiful lookouts he brought us to. We enjoyed the ideas he gave us for nice and funny pictures. Thanks a lot and have a merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New Year

Door to door a FANTASTIC experience! Steve, our guide, was knowledgeable, well versed and personable. Stress free way to see the sights. Excellent driving, clean and spacious van. Sedona and the chapel a group favorite.

Tour could have been planned out better. Not very happy about having to eat two meals in a uncomfortable moving vehicle during a 13 hour tour. Cut out a couple unnecessary stops and we could have had 45 to an hour in Sedona to shop, eat and stretch our legs. Driver was nice and the GC was amazing.
