Really enjoyed our amazing tour of the Grand Canyon. Mike, our guide, did an excellent job and made the day very enjoyable. The lunch at the Trading Post was very good. We would highly recommend this tour.

They exchanged normal van seats and benches for very comfy individual seats that lean back. We have teens and a... More

My 8 year old son and I took the day tour of the Grand Canyon via Sedona. Picked up from a hotel in north Phoenix at 730am and dropped off around 830pm. Will is an excellent tour guide. Professional, informative, knowledgeable, and fun! The van was comfortable. The company is small and local, so no ridiculous policies or scams. This... More

Our tour guide Joel was great. Explained sites along way. Cameron trading post was a great place to stop for lunch. We had a crystal clear day at the Canyon. Was our first time there. Joel was very accommodating. Very knowledgeable of the area and made sure we got the most of our time there.

We took the day tour to the Grand Canyon from Scottsdale. It is a full day, leaving around 7 and returning around 9 in the evening. A very long day, but totally worth it for the scenery through Sedona and the canyon itself. Stops in Sedona for shopping and lunch at the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo reservation.
