Your day trip from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon includes some of Arizona's most scenic landscapes. Start with a journey through the Sonoran Desert to the red rock country of Sedona, where you will make a morning coffee break and a photo stop. Take a stroll through stunning Sedona before continuing your tour along a pretty 17-mile scenic drive in Oak Creek Canyon.

You’ll travel up into the San Francisco Mountains surrounding the Flagstaff area and continue along sections of historic Route 66 through the town of Williams. You’ll arrive at the Grand Canyon around lunchtime, and you’ll have a break to eat, drink in the boundless wonders of the canyon from great overlooks, take a short nature walk or browse shops for souvenirs handcrafted by the local Indians.

After your lunch break, your guide will take you on a 23-mile driving tour along the rim of the Grand Canyon. This is the main event – incredible view after incredible view of the canyon will keep your jaw in a permanent dropped state. You’ll stop at viewpoints along the way to learn about the canyon from your guide and take pictures.

The rim tour takes about two hours, and then your guide will escort you by van from the canyon to the Navajo Reservation, where you’ll stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post, an authentic Navajo trading post. Here, you’ll learn about the Navajo people, have some time to shop, and enjoy views of the Little Colorado River Gorge and the Painted Desert in the distance.

Conclude your tour with a journey across the Navajo Reservation, back through the mountains of Flagstaff and into the Verde River valley, where a snack stop will be made early evening.

We loved this tour although it was very cold on top of the Grand Canyon this time of year. However it was a true winter wonderland!!! Wayne was an excellent guide who gave us the complete history of everything. We thought Sedona was very quaint but I would suggest that the cafe should try to offer something gluten free. Thank you Wayne for a lovely day and many blessings to you!

I traveled from Phoenix, AZ for this tour. The Tour Guide, Mike, picked us up at the Drury Inn and Suites Airport location in Phoenix bright and early at 6:30 am. It was a bit of an adventure getting started because the city was preparing for a marathon that morning and many streets were blocked, however, Mike made it happen and safely gathered each tourist for our adventure.
The first stop was at a McDonalds for a quick breakfast and off to Sedona we went. Mike was very informative about the terrain and I am glad that he was, who knew that saguaro cactus only grows in the Sonoran Desert? I won't spoil it by sharing other interesting tidbits, you will have to go for yourself.
The red rocks of Sedona are amazingly beautiful. The little town in Sedona was very quiet because our trip was on a Sunday morning and that was fine for me because I did not go for the shopping. The stop at the Navajo Reservation was interesting. the gift shop was really cool. The restaurant was great and so was the food. During that one day we experienced several weather conditions. it was 58 degrees in Phoenix, much cooler in Sedona, sleeting in Flagstaff and Snow at the Grand Canyon. The canyon was covered in white fog and it was beautiful however we were unable to see the canyon. right away. nearly 90 minutes into the trip before the fog lifted and we could actually see the canyon. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Mike was very accomodating and took us to every vantage point possible to see the canyon. Thanks Mike! You Rock!
