Day 2: Sedona — Grand Canyon
In the morning, your guide picks you up at your Sedona hotel and takes you to the Grand Canyon on a scenic route that winds through Oak Creek Canyon, considered the ‘little cousin’ to the Grand Canyon. Continuing on, passing through the Ponderosa Pine Forest and San Francisco Peaks and perhaps stopping at a Navajo trading post. Expect to reach Grand Canyon Village around noon and be amazed by your first views of the vast canyon. Your guide informs you of optional activities that you can select for the early afternoon, such as a scenic flight over the canyon (own expense), stopping at the Visitor Center, taking a walk on the South Rim and watching the changing colors of the canyon landscape. You can check in to your room later in the afternoon, and enjoy free time for the rest of the day.

This was an amazing tour that I did with my two grandchildren ages 14 and 7. All of the arrangements that were made for us were exceptional and provided just the right balance between the actual tour activities and enough free time to explore on our own. The guides were all knowledgeable, courteous and friendly and the jeep excursion through Red Rock Tours in Sedona was something that should not be missed. Thank you also to the staff at Red Rock Tours for helping us plan the remainder of our day in Sedona as well. We enjoyed visiting Tlaquepaque and the Church of the Red Rocks on the trolley tour. Our trip continued to the Grand Canyon the following day with unexpected stops at the Wupatki Indian Ruins and a lava field which were absolutely amazing. We stopped at the Desert View Watchtower and several other look out points before being dropped off at the Maswik Lodge in the late afternoon. We still had plenty of time to see the Canyon on our own and did a helicopter tour the following morning. The hotel staff were gracious in making the taxi arrangements to and from the airfield. All of our scheduled pick-ups were confirmed by phone and we were picked up on time. This was a very easy trip to do and an unforgettable memory and an experience of a lifetime for all of us.

Trip was fantastic! Each tour representative (driver and coordinator - Donna in Sedona) clearly was there to help us get the most out of our short visit. The accommodations provided through the company were conveniently located in Sedona and the Grand Canyon Park allowing us to make the most out of seeing each area using walking and the free bus in the Grand Canyon. The Yavapai Lodge in the Grand Canyon Park had a reasonably priced cafeteria with good food and was conveniently located to a general store with moderately priced souvenirs and a post office that enabled us to package and sends a multitude of misc. souvenirs from the trip back home. Recommendations by a tour representative in Sedona to the Cowboy Club restaurant for lunch were on the money. We had the "Sampler" that included bison bits, cactus fries, cilantro flat bread, prickly pear fruit sauce and a southwestern peanut sauce. A tour person in the GC Yavapai Lodge recommended a breakfast in the fancier El Tovar lodge. The decor, service and menu were well worth the morning visit. (I had blackened trout for breakfast plus all the other regular breakfast items). We passed on their fancy breakfast sweet pastries.
We did not realize when we got picked up in Phoenix (on time!) that the other people in the minivan were not necessarily on the same "tour" as us. The tour should be recognized as three legs...one to Sedona, at Sedona and to and at Grand Canyon and returning to Phoenix. Sedona is actually a brief stop on the one day trip to the Grand Canyon. We were actually returned to Phoenix from the Grand Canyon by another one day trip minivan. You will have multiple driver guides AND many different guests on each leg. The tour company is used to it and does an excellent job of taking care of its clients by coordinating the pickup and drop off times. One item to note, many of the Sedona galleries closed early (in October) making visits to them in the early evening somewhat limited.

Great trip and well organized by all the tour operators.
All tour operators were friendly and helpful. Tour guides were all knowledgeable and made the tours so interesting.
Terrific location to visit and to get to know all aspects of the area and the settlement of Arizona down through the ages.
Were only sorry that the trip was marred by some monsoon weather, which the tour companies obviously had no control over. We must remember this for the future and be more aware of the weather patterns for areas we visit. Apart from this it was Great! Just Great!

AMAZING! A wonderful way to see these two places if you have never been or have some people with you who may not be up for trying to find your way or hiking. I went with my parents who are in their 70s and it was perfect. We saw and did a ton but it also gave us an idea of things we may want to do the next time we visit. All of our tour guides and drivers were friendly and very knowledgeable. I was extremely happy with this tour.

Excellent trip! Staying overnight in Sedona and staying overnight in the Grand Canyon were both the best ideas. The trip was easy, enjoyable well worth it.

Both Sedona and the Grand Canyon were awesome. Especially enjoyed the jeep tour in Sedona and seeing the sun set over the Grand Canyon at Yavapai Point. Everything went smoothly. Didn't really anticipate the hugeness of everything and therefore all the walking that was necessary. We had a great time. Thanx.
