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.

Jason with Detour Travel was a fantastic tour guide providing not just historical facts but scientific and more around Sedona and the Grand Canyon. The vans were comfortable and punctual throughout the day tour. We could have used more time at the places we stopped but that's what happens when you try to cover so much territory in one day. Other than that, it was a 5-star trip.

Jason our tour guide was the best! So passionate and proud of his home state of Arizona. He was so knowledgeable. And we felt very comfortable with his driving style. I highly recommend this tour. And the lunch choices were delicious! Safe your shopping needs until you get to the Indian Reservation. Great jewelry and souvenirs selection. And the sales benefit the Indian people directly.

Absolutely amazing trip. Even though the trip takes the whole day, it is well worth the time as the scenery is truly breathtaking. There were plenty of stops and great places for souveniers. Our guide, Mac, was very considerate and knew so much about the places and the history. It would not have been the same without him. Also, I am 203 cm tall 6'8 and was comfortable sitting in the front seat of the vehicle. Very highly recommended.

Excellent tour of the Grand Canyon and the Red Rocks of Sedona. Our guide Jason was extremely personable and ensured everyone in the group was informed of the main points of interest and the best places to take in the magnificent views. Long day but worth it.

This was an awesome tour to take of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. John Mac our driver and guide was outstanding. He was very informative all along the trip, not just about the canyon or Sedona. He kept the 12 hour day interesting. The lunch supplied was excellent as well. Highly recommend this tour.

The tour was really excellent. it enabled me to fulfill a life long ambition, to visit the Grand Canyon. The whole experience was heightened by the quality of our guide, Les. He was extremely knowledgable about all aspects of the geology, botany and zoology of the area. I particularly valued his insights into the Native American past and current life. He took great care of the group, was solicitous to our needs and his enthusiasm for Arizona and all its treasures was infectious.
