Overview

Journey through stunning Arizona landscapes on this full-day tour from the Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Visit the Grand Canyon and explore Route 66 with an expert guide who handles all the driving and logistics, leaving you free to soak in the incredible scenery. Explore highlights of the Grand Canyon, and drive through the Sonoran Desert on this small-group tour. With numbers limited to 13 participants, you can enjoy a more intimate experience of the Southwest's natural beauty.
  • Small-group, full-day tour of the Grand Canyon
  • Explore the Grand Canyon National Park with your knowledgeable guide
  • Enjoy a scenic drive through the Sonoran Desert
  • Enjoy a photo stop in Williams along Route 66
  • Gourmet picnic-style lunch included
  • Transport by custom, luxury, air-conditioned van
After morning pickup at select locations in Phoenix or Scottsdale, relax on your drive through the Sonora Desert, en route to some of the American Southwest's most beautiful highlights.

Your drive brings you through the expansive Sonoran Desert filled with the native saguaro cactus. The scenery begins to change as you increase in elevation and views of the cactus fade into pine trees. As you continue further into Northern Arizona, travel the outskirts of the Route 66 town of Flagstaff and from the highway, see the San Francisco Peaks among the seemingly endless Ponderosa Pine Forest, one of the largest contiguous forests of ponderosa pines in the world.

Williams will be the first stop along the tour for a chance to experience Route 66, the iconic American highway steeped in rich tradition.

Your van climbs up to 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) before you reach your first stopping point in Grand Canyon National Park. Expect at least three hours to explore the features around the deepest and widest part of the canyon, which measures 277 miles (445 km) in length. Visit the El Tovar Hotel and Hopi House in Grand Canyon Village, multiple scenic lookout points along the East Rim Drive, and have time to shop, go for a walk, and visit cultural exhibits along the rim. You'll also be provided with a box lunch to enjoy at the Grand Canyon.

Your tour ends in the evening upon your return to your starting point in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.

Great tour. I highly recommend it. Our tour guide and driver, Brendan, was friendly and knowledgeable. He made the trip enjoyable. If you’re short on time, make this tour one of your choices to take. You won’t regret it!

This was a great tour! You could be as active or less active as you wanted to be and still see the beautiful sweeping views of the Grand Canyon. The tour guide, Andy was VERY informative and made for a great day! Well worth the money!

I only had one day to visit the Grand Canyon, and am so glad I chose this tour! We had four hours at the Canyon, and Mark, our guide and driver, took us to several awesome viewpoints. At the first I was thrilled to have enough time to walk a short way down the Bright Angel Trail. The journey was long but Mark kept us entertained and informed with fascinating facts about the region, and a great playlist for the road trip home! The packed lunch was also very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this tour as an amazing experience of the Grand Canyon if you only have one day to spare.

It was a long day but worth every second. Our guide Joe was terrific. He had plenty of information to share about the landscape as we traveled north from Phoenix. Stunningly beautiful area of the South Rim. So happy I went.

My 1st trip to the Grand Canyon and it was magnificent! Driver John was super and gave us info on the ride up! Nathan, his assistant was wonderful and took photos of myself and for the others! We saw a lot and we’re supplied with lots of water. The bus is comfortable, but ac was working overtime, so it would cut off at times. We lucked out and saw a performance by 2 native Americans and it was so cool! I wish that Sedona was part of the tour, but that will have to be next time! Thank you John and Nathan for this day!The lunch was okay, but that was not so important.

We had booked a tour 2 years ago in Vegas from another company and they didn’t pick us up. This company was always prompt. Our driver Bob was an excellent and safe driver as well as entertaining and knowledgeable. A perfect 39 th Anniversary!!!!
