Ultimate Grand Canyon Day Trip from Flagstaff or Sedona

Ultimate Grand Canyon Day Trip from Flagstaff or Sedona

This tour covers a lot of ground in and around Grand Canyon National Park, so its an early morning pickup from your Flagstaff or Seodna hotel to kick off your day of travel via mini coach.

Wupatki National Monument is your first major stop. As your guide will explain, the ancient Native American civilization of Sinagua lived here for 400 years. Then ancient desert dwellers. witnessed the dramatic eruption of Sunset Crater Volcano nearly a millennium ago, which destroyed their homes and forced them out. Your tour includes a visit to the lava fields at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.

Take a break from touring with a stop for lunch at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The view of the Little Colorado River Gorge from the deck here is especially striking.

After lunch, re-board your  mini-coach to head into the Grand Canyon for an afternoon of exploring this magnificent natural wonder. You'll stop at lookout points along the canyon's East Rim and South Room for dramatic vistas of gorges below. There's time at leisure for exploring on your own at your own pace.

Throughout the entire day, whether you're exploring by foot or on the mini coach, your expert guide will teach you about the history, archaeology, geology and flora and fauna of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area.

I can't say enough good things about our trip to the Grand Canyon. This is definitely a great way to see many sights in the area. I am usually the one who does the driving and I tend to miss some of the sights as a result of that. This was a great way to see everything and actually be able to enjoy it with my wife. We got to see things that I wouldn't have seen if we had driven ourselves. Our guide was fantastic and was very informative. We learned a lot about the area and about the history of the sights we visited. Our trip lasted a total of about 11 hours and I believe our guide only went about 30 minutes where he was not talking to us which came near the end when everyone was getting a little tired. It was nice to be able to sit back and relax for a change. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

The scenery was beautiful, the van was comfortable and J.R. was very knowledgeable. He was more than happy to share his personal experiences with us. I enjoyed the Indian ruins and lunch at the trading post. Best Indian bread was the sliced beef and onions. Would like to have seen the Painted Desert up close.
