Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 is 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 ample time 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, grab lunch (own expense), and visit cultural exhibits along the rim.

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

We traveled with Sam who has an amazing passion for the Grand Canyon. He shared his expertise on the geology and topography of the area and had a unique way for us to experience our first look at the canyon. It was a great way to visit with limited time.

I booked the small group trip for my husband’s birthday and we had a great time! Tracy was our driver and tour guide and he made the trip quite memorable. He is very outgoing and has a lovely personality. We had about 15 people on this small group tour and it was still a very intimate experience. Make sure to ask for Tracy as your tour guide and you’ll have a lovely time.

Guide ( Steven was very good and knowledgeable. However the van that was used was terrible . The roads were not the best but not only was the van uncomfortable but had a constant rattling and noise from the van . It made a 4 hour trip almost unbeatable. Will not use again with this equipment

This experience was awesome. It was so nice to be able to get picked up and dropped off and not worry about any of the driving. I went with my fiance for our honeymoon and it was a great trip and we were kept well hydrated all day. The Canyon was amazing and we even got to spot a California Condor! (one of the endangered birds here in AZ). It was also great having such a small and intimate group rather than being on one of those huge bus tours (both because it was nice and intimate and also because of COVID-19)! Highly recommend.
