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.
What an amazing tour! Our guide, Les, was incredibly knowledgeable and filled our time with interesting facts. Although it was a 13.5 hour trip, the time absolutely flew by and it was worth every moment. If you want to have a taste of Sedona and the Grand Canyon from typical vantage points and from spots others don't always go to I would highly recommend this tour.
Don was an excellent host and guide for our day. His knowledge of all of AZ made for a very educational experience. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable, hands-free view of Arizona and one of the most beautiful spots in the world, the Grand Canyon.
Had a great trip and a life-time experience ! Our guide Mr Memo was wonderful, very knowledgable and passionate.....was also lucky to have very friendly co- passengers. I am glad I chose this trip. On the whole a memorable experience and highly recommended !
We loved this trip - perfect for us to see all the highlights. Jay G was the perfect guide - thinking about our experience before we even left for the day. Would definitely recommend him. The lunch was fantastic too! Both my sister and i had nothing but great things to say about this trip, our tour guide and the experience of the Grand Canyon. Would highly recommend.
Excellent Tour! Would highly recommend anyone wanting to see the highlights without any of the hassles. Lunch was fantastic too!
Our tour leader 'Gary' was terrific. He was very knowledgeable about the area in addition to the Grand Canyon. Only down side for me, I'm no shopper was the end of day side trip to an Indian tourist trap. I'd rather spend an extra hour at the Canyon.
A fantastic experience and lots packed into the day. Very experienced and informative tour guide.
My wife booked this tour about a week prior to our trip. After reading other reviews, we felt positive that this was the right one for us. We had a short trip to AZ planned and it was our first time there so we wanted to be able to see the grand canyon and other important landmarks in our time there. Even though we rented a car, we really had no idea where the best locations were to go and we felt overwhelmed planning a trip without any direction. This tour was perfect for us, we didnt have to worry about driving and getting lost and we got to see different areas of the grand canyon. From the very start of the trip we felt comfortable and relaxed. Our tour guide was wonderful, he called the night prior to the trip to confirm pick up time and came to our hotel the next morning at the time promised. We had a group of 11 people total and it was a perfect number as the bus we rode it could seat 12 in the back and they had very comfortable captain chairs for the passengers. The tour guide was patient, very knowledgeable and respectful to everyone on board. We had numerous stops on the way to the grand canyon including stopping in Sedona which was beautiful. The tour guide gave us extra time and never rushed anyone back onto the bus. The guide provided lots of information on the trip and answered questions whenever one was asked. The tour was about 13.5 hours and honestly it didnt feel like it was that long. The guide had cold bottled water for everyone for the trip and refilled it often to ensure we all stay hydrated. Lunch was very good- especially the cookie that came with it. I would do this again and my wife and i are glad we choose this experience.
the guide made it so much fun and it never felt like a long bus ride. I enjoyed the small group, so it felt like we were all in this together. We had such a great day!!!
This tour was fantastic! The guide was informative and entertaining. Wish i had the time to take more trips with Detours but I had a very short stay in Phoenix. I am looking forward to returning and going on some more day trips.
As a first time visitor to Arizona I wanted to make it out to the Grand Canyon. This day trip was perfect! Our van driver/tour guide was super nice, very knowledgeable, and always willing to take pictures for us! The sites were absolutely breath taking and the lunch was good too! The only downfall of this trip was the long drive back to our hotel in Phoenix.
One of the best trips we've ever done! Great guide and the seats in the van were very comfortable! Also the cooled water was great!

Detours of Arizona is simply the best, especially Jason, our driver and guide. He was knowledgeable and it was obvious he loved his job. He shared lots of information that he didn't have to. He was patient to answer lots of questions. Great experience.
It was a fantastic tour. Matt our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
He took us off the beaten path and allowed us to see some areas we would not normally
see on a typical tour. He was great! The whole experience was great!
It's the perfect day tour for folks like me who are just passing through Phoenix for a meeting ... Jason was knowledgeable and attentive. He took us to all the best views of the Grand Canyon. The long day is broken up by the Sedona visit on the way up and the Trading Post visit on the way back. The ride is comfortable. Good sandwiches at lunch however needed a fork to eat it with chicken salad!!.
Great tour! Very informative trip, our guide Dan was wonderful. I highly recommend this trip for any age.
Our tour driver, Mark, was very knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and Sedona. He anticipated the questions that people would have. His love of the Canyon, it's history, and his tourists, was very evident.
This tour was a great day trip to see the highlights of the Grand Canyon. We were picked up in Phoenix and then made several stops, one in Sedona to shop, one in the Navejo Reservation to shop and then multiple along the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Lunch was provided and I have never seen such a huge sandwich, it was delicious and more than enough for a hungry hippo. There was a lot of driving on this trip but plenty of stops to get out and move around.
This was our first tour and it was an outstanding experience!!! We were able to see and learn more about the gorgeous locations than driving ourselves. Our driver, Jason, was an awesome and very informative tour guide. We enjoyed taking memorable photographs, having a delicious gourmet lunch and socializing with the wonderful passengers on the bus. Greatly appreciate the hospitality we received. Seeing the Grand Canyon and the surrounding areas in the comfort of a luxury bus was definitely a spectacular gift!!!
Your guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and accommodating. He told us what to expect and delivered what he said he would. We were picked up timely and delivered back to our hotel in a timely manner. The absolutely ONLY thing that my group was disappointed in was the lunch however, he did tell us the usual place where he got the lunches was closed that day. So, all in all, I consider the experience and the day a success.
