Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Enjoy entrance to the Grand Canyon through a lesser-known gate with a smaller-than-average tour group.
This tour covers a lot of ground in and around Grand Canyon National Park, so its an early morning pickup from your Flagstaff or Sedona hotel to kick off your day of travel via mini-coach.

Wupatki National Monument is your first major stop. As your guide explains, the ancient Native American civilization of Sinagua lived here for 400 years. Then ancient desert dwellers witnessed the dramatic eruption of Sunset Crater Volcano nearly a millennium ago, which destroyed their homes and forced them out. Your tour includes a visit to the lava fields at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.

Take a break from touring with a stop for lunch at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The view of the Little Colorado River Gorge from the deck here is especially striking.

After lunch, re-board your mini-coach to head into the Grand Canyon for an afternoon of exploring this magnificent natural wonder. Stop at lookout points along the canyon's East Rim and South Room for dramatic vistas of gorges below. There's time at leisure for exploring on your own at your own pace.

Throughout the entire day, whether you're exploring by foot or on the mini-coach, your expert guide teaches you about the history, archaeology, geology, and flora and fauna of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area.

JR was very friendly and knowledgeable. He told great stories and treated the group to a great photo experience with ‘Dinosaur Larry’.

Great experience! We enjoyed touring with Chris. This is a must-do, particularly for those who are visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time. It allows you to see the main sights and understand some of the history. The downside was that we were limited on time at each stop; we felt a bit rushed. We plan to go back to stay longer at the spots we enjoyed most. Thank you for a wonderful time!

The tour & guide (Mark) were great. However, when we made it to the Canyon all we saw was fog & clouds. We could not see more than 10’ in front of us and it was extremely disappointing to say the least. Mark did his best at different spots but the weather would not cooperate. As a consolation the tour operator treated us to the IMAX. It was appreciated! We returned the next day on our own from Sedona & finally SUCCESS! It was WORTH the effort!!!!!

Our tour guide Math was great. The tour time allocations are not very good. I would prefer less time for lunch ( maybe a lunch box ) and more time in the village to explore. The tour bus not bad but not the most comfortable seats.

This was a very informative tour, and took us to places we would never have known to go to on our own. At the Grand Canyon our tour guide knew the best places to view the beauty of the Canyon. We were very pleased with our experience.

Sheldon, our tour guide, was excellent in describing with visual imageries the many aspects of history, terrain, what to expect, which made time fly on the ride. In addition to seeing various views of the Canyon from up top via vista points (6 to be exact), we also saw a lot of out-of-the-way wonders and sights before reaching the Grand Canyon. Both my teen boys also enjoyed the experience. Be sure to bring sunglasses.

Grand Canyon day trip review
Bob L

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!

Grand Canyon is Beautiful With Snow

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.
