Full description

Embark on a journey to Grand Canyon National Park. Admire the incredible views and geological wonders of Northern Arizona. Enjoy a tour fully narrated by some of the most experienced guides in the Southwest. After pickup from your hotel in Sedona, ascend the Colorado Plateau and continue through the photogenic Oak Creek Canyon. Take winding roads as you leave the red rocks behind, then stop at the tall Ponderosa Pines.

Next, arrive at Flagstaff, where other travelers will join the tour. Pass by the dormant volcanoes of the San Francisco Peaks, before heading to the Grand Canyon South Entrance. Once at Grand Canyon National Park, explore historic buildings, see majestic views at Grand Canyon Village, and enjoy lunch on your own. See some of the widest and deepest scenic views of the Grand Canyon and the mighty Colorado River. Get to experience the magnificent South Rim scenery first-hand. From the South Rim, gaze 14 miles across to the North Rim. Visit the only point where you can see both Phantom Ranch, as well as the Kaibab Suspension Bridge. Your guide knows the best vistas to stop at and will make sure you get the most gorgeous, least crowded viewpoints. At Desert View, you are free to climb the Watchtower Observatory for amazing views that will leave you breathless. On your way back from the Grand Canyon, experience a view of the western edge of the Painted Desert, the Little Colorado River Gorge, and the Colorado River Gorge.

Before you return, make a brief stop at the Navajo Reservation. Here you will have a chance to shop for authentic Native American souvenirs at the historical Cameron Trading Post.

We were a party of 4 2 sets of couples. Both of couples enjoyed this experience with doing the shuttle service. Our guide Jessica I believe is her name was excellent she was so informative. My husband really enjoys history and facts. Was so worth the money to have a guide someone who knows where to stop and informs you along the way. We left flagstaff at 9am and was back at 4:30pm. We all thought we had plenty of time to see everything we wanted. We went during Labor Day it was very Hot so we thought each stop was just the amount of time. I would highly recommend this tour.

After having driven throughout my Southwestern trip, I decided it might be more relaxing and productive to book a tour and let someone else do the driving. The tour worked out perfectly. Our guide Sheldon was knowledgeable, more than accommodating, and created a sense of fun throughout. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great way to spend the day. The pick-up at our hotel was on time and back in 8 hours. We saw so much and our guide Ty was fabulous. He was super knowledgeably and has a ton of experience! They aren't kidding when they say you won't have enough time at the trading post. There's so much to see and the staff are so very kind. The stopping points were amazing and very easily navigable for those with more limited mobility. We had a terrific experience and would recommend this to others.
