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  and soak in views of the Little Colorado River Gorge. 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.

We were five persons, two Danish and three Icelanders, who went with your company to Grand Canyon from Phoenix Tempe and we were very satisfied with the trip and our driver, Mark, was absolutely fabulous. He was very informative and we learned lot about this area from him. The food we had on our trip was delicious.
At last we have to say that the service we had from your company through Linda and Mark just made our day and if they had not helped us on that morning when we went for our trip we would have missed it. So Linda and Mark thank you.

You can see from all the other reviews that this tour is great. The canyon itself is breathtaking - a must see. The van was comfortable and you get plenty of time to see the canyon from many viewpoints.

What really made it special for me, though, was that our guide Shauntil made the fairly long drive seem to go by in no time at all with a perfect balance of fun, information, breaks and humour. Riding up front definitely gave me the best seat in the house as Shauntil was super friendly, chatty and knowledgeable the whole way there and back. All while driving safely and professionally.

This side excursion was definitely worth every penny paid. Our tour guide Johnathon was very patient, polite, funny, and helpful in every way possible. He made sure we got every opportunity to get the best pictures along the way throughout this trip. It is a MUST to go see the Grand Canyon at least once in your life. I would definitely go with this touring company again. Thank you for offering me a trip of a life time. Sharon the Conductor.....

The Grand Canyon is inspirational! As you can see from all the reviews, this Sedona/Grand Canyon tour is excellent. Shauntil, our tour guide was outstanding. It is a long tour, 13 plus hours, with a lot of highway time, but worth every mile. The included box lunch was great. Much higher quality than we expected. We would highly recommend this tour!

Great trip. Easy to set up tour, arrange pickup and return. The driver/tour guide was excellent. Please and knew the areas well. I would highly recommend this tour. One of the best things, small group and everyone was friendly. A lot of stops were made for sight seeing, restroom breaks and plenty of times to see the sights and take photos.

The tour director was informative and interesting and the van was comfortable. We were not even tired despite riding from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon and leaving early and getting back at 7:30 P.M. My husband and I both senior citizens were not even tired and could not believe we had traveled over 500 miles. Sedona and Williams were so interesting as we made our way to the canyon and the boxed lunch was delicious. By eating on the van, we had more time to see the amazing sights. I really enjoy using vVator when I travel to a new area many times I peruse the offerings and get ideas even if I do not book the tour.

We had a great time on our Grand Canyon tour. We were really glad we took the small group. We had more individual attention. Billy was very knowledgeable, he guided us to scenic areas and on a very busy day delivered us to the less crowed spots.

the tour was everything i expected and more. They kept you on time and got you back to your pickup spot at a reasonable hour. the food was really good from a vegetarians point of view and they had as much water as your heart desired. I was so thankful i didn't have to drive and could sit back and watch the landscape drastically change as we headed up north to the grand canyon. i was really happy i also didn't have to drive or find parking within the grand canyon national park. We went on a tuesday parking was very full as there is a lot of people in a small amount of space. i would highly recommend this tour. You are at the grand canyon for about three hours, although i could have stared at it all day long it was plenty of time to see different views snap some pictures and enjoy lunch overlooking the canyon.
