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.

This is my third trip to the Grand Canyon and my first on a tour.
Chris, our guide, was funny, informative and accommodating. We had the luxury of seeing all of the beautiful views without the trouble of driving in winter weather or using Park buses. The small group size made it more personal than large tours and we had plenty of time at each stop to explore on our own. It was a perfect day!

He was so entertaining and knowledgeable.

This was a GREAT way to see the Canyon, on a small tour bus that picked us up at our hotel.
The meal on the reservation was wonderful.

The entire trip was a great mix of experiences.
Thanks.

This was a wonderful experience! Mark our driver /tour guide was hugely entertaining. Not only did he drive and explain where or what we were passing and what was upcoming he filled us with tidbits of info re geology , weather inhabitants and food!
I can recommend this tour whole heartedly....Mark went above and beyond to help fulfill our expectations. Even when we arrived at the Grand Canyon and the clouds had obscured our view...Mark was ready to drive to several viewing area until we all could al see the magnificent canyon! I can only say this was one of the best moments of my life. Too huge and beautiful it exceeds even my imagination. I will return and try to take the donkey ride to the floor next. Five stars plus.

A great tour beginning to end. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the trip and on the drive. He was with us at all the stops explaining the sites. You could do this tour yourself, but you would miss out on all the background relating to the site and area. Highly recommended.

Our Tour guide Sheldon was awesome, picked us up at our hotel front door and dropped off at our front door. Sheldon was personable and went above and beyond to tell us about the area and explored the Grand Canyon and Volcano area. The lunch at the Indian restaurant and gift shop was outstanding, beautiful scenery, fireplace was going and I would recommend the Taco to all. Well worth the 's an, enjoyable, memorable experience.

So glad we booked this tour to introduce my husband and daughter to the Grand Canyon. Prompt actually early, which was great pick up from our hotel in Flagstaff. We enjoyed the small group in a comfortable van and felt we had great personal attention. Kris was a fantastic tour guide with so many wonderful stories about the landscape, the history, the people and the culture. Saw the area through a very different lens that if we had done this on our own. October was a perfect month to visit cool crisp morning and warm sun by afternoon. Enjoyed the stops along the way and the various views of the Grand Canyon. My last visit was 40 years ago and the sights continue to be magnificent and inspiring.
