What You Can Expect

Small-Group Deluxe Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Trip

Small-Group Deluxe Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Trip

After morning pickup at select locations in Phoenix or Scottsdale, relax on your drive through the Sonora Desert, en route to some of the American Southwest's most beautiful highlights.

Travel in a climate-controlled van with your knowledgeable guide, who shares a wealth of information throughout the day. Drive north to Sedona, home to the iconic saguaro cactus, then marvel at the desert landscape as you head to Red Rock country. There, stretch your legs and have time to snap photos of the otherworldly scenery before continuing on to see a superstar of the region: the Grand Canyon.

Wind along Oak Creek Canyon as you take in stunning views of the Ponderosa Pine Forest and San Francisco Peaks. Your van climbs up to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) before you reach your first stopping point in Grand Canyon National Park. Expect at least three hours to explore the features around the deepest and widest part of the canyon, which measures 277 miles (445 km) in length. Visit the El Tovar Hotel and Hopi House in Grand Canyon Village, multiple scenic lookout points along the East Rim Drive, and have time to shop, go for a walk and visit cultural exhibits along the rim.

Departing the Grand Canyon, marvel at the Painted Desert before entering the largest native American reservation in the United States: the Navajo Nation. Soak in views of the Little Colorado River Gorge, and stop at a Navajo trading post that sells items such as Navajo textiles, handmade ceramics and art. Afterward, continue across the Colorado Plateau as you return to the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.

Based on time, your picnic lunch will either be served either in Sedona or at the Grand Canyon. Your tour ends in the evening upon your return to your starting point.

This trip was worth the money. Mack, the tour guide was excellent and very accommodating. The lunch he picked up for us in Sedona was wonderful. I certainly would do the trip again.

We cannot say enough how enjoyable this tour was. Our tour guide Mike was absolutely outstanding!! His knowledge of the areas we visited were amazing. He allowed plenty of time at each stop for picture taking and use of the facilities. The lunch provided was excellent, together with as much bottled water as wanted. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone, and if possible request Mike as the tour guide.

Our tour guide I think it was Dan? was so informative and full of history! Great trip, the sandwiches were huge! and great, really filled us up for the day, and sitting in a comfortable van, while not having to drive was amazing. You see some beautiful spots, and if your looking to learn the history and have a relaxing day, I highly suggest this tour. Even to get in to the Canyon costs money, and it's covered with your guide, so it's great!

Great way to fit in a lot of scenery in one day. Sedona and the Grand Canyon are must sees if you're visiting the Phoenix area. This tour was the best part of my trip. Make sure to bring your camera!

The Grand Canyon was on my bucket list and it was breathtaking! Charlie, our guide was great. He was very knowledgeable with a dry sense of humor. He gave us lots of interesting information about the people and the area. We got to see it from several different places. Our 13 person van was perfect. We avoided stopping where the buses stopped for lunch and we were able to take a shortcut to avoid traffic. We loved the fact that we ordered delicious, healthy lunches ahead of time, and everyone ate when they were hungry. There was only one stopping shop and we didn't feel like we wasted a lot of time there. The stop in Sedonia was relatively short, but we had been there before so that was not a problem for us. This was my first experience with Viatour and I will definitely use them again.
