Surpassed our expectations. The drive from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon was wonderful. Great guide. Loved the stop at the Navajo reservation where we stopped to eat the lunch that we bought in a lovely restaurant/bakery in Sedona. Overnight accommodations at the Canyon were terrific. We able to watch elk out the window of our room. Highly recommend this tour.

the tour was great! friendly driver/tour guide. My husband and I met Chris on the first day of the tour. We stopped in Sedona for 20 minutes (really short time) and we had lunch (not included on the trip) in Canyon Market. Also, the 2nd day we have Smokey it was fun as well! worth it.
Excellent tour of the Grand Canyon!
I highly recommend this Tour! I chose this tour because I wanted to see the Sedona Red Rocks, the Navajo Reservation, and the Grand Canyon. I was picked up at my hotel in Phoenix. The morning of, the driver called me on my cell phone to let me that he was on his way and the exact time (down to the minute) that he was going to be at my hotel. I found that to be very helpful and courteous. On the drive through the desert to the Sedona Red Rocks via the scenic route, the tour guide was highly informative and friendly. I learned a lot about both the city of Phoenix and the surrounding desert. We viewed the beautiful Sedona Red Rocks (= mountains that look like red rock formations) from the bus windows. We stopped for 30 minutes at the Sedona Red Rocks "tourist strip", a one block street of touristy shops. (If you want to spend a lot of time in Sedona, this tour is not for you. If I ever go back to Phoenix, I will take an all-day tour of Sedona from the same tour company. Or I will take a shuttle to Sedona and stay at a local hotel with a beautiful view of the Red Rocks. A friend of mine who took the 3-hour Sedona Jeep ride told me it was very hot and bumpy; and not the tour for me. To be truthful, I would rather see them from a tour bus). While at Sedona, a couple on the same tour bus as me took the time to purchase food that they said was just ok. In other words, don’t waste valuable time at Sedona purchasing food!! Our stop at the "Navajo Reservation" was a 30-minute stop at an over-priced store selling native items that is not even owned by a Navajo!! (The store employs many Navajo, so I was happy to purchase items there). We had to take valuable time (out of our 30-minute stop) to order our Take-Out food and wait in line to pick up the food. It’s not native food, so I don’t recommend wasting the time – bring food on this tour if possible. (ie. Buy a sandwich to go at Denny’s. You are allowed to eat food on the bus). Then we drove to the Grand Canyon. We st
Our two day Grand Canyon tour was great. Our first guide Cory was passionate about the area, and obviously loved his job. He made the trip up informative and fun. Really appreciated all the little anecdotes that all the guides shared with us. The accommodations at the canyon were excellent...first class actually. Glad we chose this company. They are totally consumer friendly and experienced. We even had a change in scheduling and that worked out easily. Would use Viator again for sure.
Everything was perfect!! It was a really good choice.

Both tour guides were well versed in the sights we saw, plus history of the region. The slight stop in Sedona was disappointing, because we could not stop on the highway to photograph any of the scenic views. However, the Navaho Indian reservation was a nice stop at their trading post. Once we arrived at the Grand Canyon things slowed down and we were treated to several stops to take photos, prior to making a late lunch stop at Bright Angel restaurant, then on to Masswick Lodge where we spent the night. The next day we enjoyed time to explore on our own, until we were picked up at the Lodge for the return trip back to Scottsdale and our condo.
it was wonderful the our guide Tom gave us a history lesson not just of the canyon but of the Arizona territory as well. He made a point of stopping at great places for pictures and souvenirs. So much to do next time we will take the three day tour.
