After being picked up by luxury van from the Phoenix metro area, your first stop is the famous Red Rocks of Sedona. During the brief stop you can stretch your legs, take photos of the Red Rocks while your guide will pick up your lunch at a Sedona restaurant to take as a picnic to the Grand Canyon.

Continuing on your scenic drive though Oak Creek Canyon, one of the USA's most scenic drives, you'll experience dramatic elevation changes as you wind through 2000 vertical feet (600 meters) of red walled canyon before emerging into a ponderosa forest.

Once at the Grand Canyon South Rim, board a state-of-the-art helicopter for a 50-minute flight over the Grand Canyon. You’ll fly towards the eastern end of the canyon, following the Colorado River, over the picturesque Kaibab National Forest and through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the Grand Canyon.

As you head back to Phoenix you’ll drive though the Navajo Nation and ta stop at an authentic Navajo trading post.

Great trip, not to be missed. Memo our tour guide and driver was very knowledgeable and provided a constant summary of information on the surrounding area. Stops were well timed, food was probably the biggest sandwiches we have ever seen! We took the Maverick helicopter tour with pilot Patrick. He was very smooth in the air and the flight out over the forest lulled us just enough for our hearts to jump out of our chests as we went over the rim to the canyon. Wow what an experience! After the flight we had time for photos with the pilot and copter before joining the rest of the tour group for additional stops along the south rim before making our way home.
The tour company, Detours, were very flexible in allowing us to change our schedule at the last moment. A tour not to be missed, great value for money.

Excellent experience! Knowledgeable and pleasant driver. Helicopter was a great way to see the canyon. Saw wild Boson, Elk, and wild horses on the excursion. Really something.
