What To Expect

Your Grand Canyon tour begins with morning pickup from your Flagstaff hotel in a climate-controlled vehicle, and a scenic drive to the Grand Canyon.

Head out of Flagstaff and pass through Oak Creek Canyon and on to the Colorado Plateau. Look for the San Francisco Peaks, a volcanic mountain range with Arizona´s highest mountain, and the historic town of Williams on Route 66.

Upon arrival at Grand Canyon National Park, stop at the overlook at Grand Canyon Village to soak in the views across the majestic canyon. Keep an eye out for condors – the world´s largest bird.

After lunch at Maswik Café, your guide takes you to the top viewpoints along the South Rim, Visit Yavapai Point, which also has a geology museum; Lipan Point, where you can look down into the canyon; and Desert View, which has a historic watchtower and Hopi art.

Later, drive along the Little Colorado Rover and stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The trading post opened in the early 1900s on the Navajo reservation and carries fine handicrafts and art from Hopi, Zuni and Navajo artists.

As you drive back to Flagstaff, watch the sunset light up the sky over the high desert. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

The trip is pretty short...
Margaret_B, Mar 2022
The trip is pretty short (especially leaving from Flagstaff) and a bit too commercial for my taste. We stopped for a long time at a US private-owned (NOT EVEN native American-owned) shopping area. We stopped at 3-4 viewpoints at the Grand Canyon and that was it ... The guide was extremely nice and pleasant though.
Steve was a wonderful...

Steve was a wonderful tour guide! He showed us parts of the park (and off park) we never would have gone to on our own. He had knowledge of literally everything and gladly shared it. The views were unreal, a wonderful day. The only part we didn't necessarily enjoy was the fact that we were the only ones wearing masks in a van. Masks were optional inside the van during a pandemic? I'm a nurse, so I don't think that makes a ton of sense. People were coughing in the van all day. Otherwise, a great tour.
