This tour covers a lot of ground in and around Grand Canyon National Park, so its an early morning pickup from your Flagstaff or Sedona hotel to kick off your day of travel via mini-coach.

Wupatki National Monument is your first major stop. As your guide explains, the ancient Native American civilization of Sinagua lived here for 400 years. Then ancient desert dwellers witnessed the dramatic eruption of Sunset Crater Volcano nearly a millennium ago, which destroyed their homes and forced them out. Your tour includes a visit to the lava fields at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.

Take a break from touring with a stop for lunch at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The view of the Little Colorado River Gorge from the deck here is especially striking.

After lunch, re-board your mini-coach to head into the Grand Canyon for an afternoon of exploring this magnificent natural wonder. Stop at lookout points along the canyon's East Rim and South Room for dramatic vistas of gorges below. There's time at leisure for exploring on your own at your own pace.

Throughout the entire day, whether you're exploring by foot or on the mini-coach, your expert guide teaches you about the history, archaeology, geology, and flora and fauna of the Grand Canyon and the surrounding area.

We had Mark as our tour guide and he was AMAZING!!! The tour met above our expectations. We were unsure about it and what it would be like, but once we started going and the different stops that were made on the way and at the grand canyon were awesome. Would highly recommendA

Our travel guide Jason was incredibly knowledgeable of the history, geology, and area. This was a great way to hit all the highlights from Sedona to the Grand Canyon for a first timer! It is a long day but very worth it. Wish we had more time in the Grand Canyon village to stop but overall it was awesome!

We loved the lava field and the Wupatki Pueblo stops in addition to the Grand Canyon. Within the canyon Ty knew all the great vista points and giving us the option to eat our lunch picnic style at the canyon rim was very special. Of course being able to just enjoy the sites and have someone else do the driving is what made us decide to book this tour to begin with.

Bard was awesome! From the moment we were picked up, he was very courteous and funny through out the whole trip. He shared his vast knowledge of the land and the people of the natives. Could not have asked for a better tour guide, definitely going to book another tour next time we visit Arizona. Sedona is on my next agenda and hopefully Bard can be our guide for that one too!

Our guide Sheldon was a consummate professional. Always courteous, attentive, and offered so much information in a way that was as interesting to the adults as it was to our children. The actual itinerary itself worked perfectly. Transportation food ambience we are excellent. We would highly recommend this to her to anybody interested in experiencing not just the Grand Canyon, but some of the other treasures that are available and close in Arizona.

Although it was a long day, we felt it was money well spent to have someone else doing the driving! Matt was our tour guide for the day, and he could not have been more fun and entertaining. The Grand Canyon was our ultimate destination, but we made several stops along the way to see sights like a surprise lava field, lunch on the Indian reservation, and the remains of an abandoned pueblo, now a National Monument. Matt was very knowledgeable about the different areas we visited and gladly answered all questions. Once we reached the Grand Canyon, Matt very skillfully maneuvered our van through the often crowded parking areas, another reason to have someone do the driving for you, to enable us to conveniently reach each lookout area. There he would join us, take photos for us, and have interesting bits of information about the park and what we were seeing. We never felt rushed at any stop. We had some free time at the Village to wander the shops and small museum. Don't miss the Hopi House for wonderful arts and crafts. Our drive back to Sedona was relaxing, returning us to our hotel just in time for dinner. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed spending the day with Matt. He picked us up at our hotel promptly at the time indicated, he was very approachable and friendly from the very start , and remained so the entire day. It was a great day!

David Davis took us to some beautiful places! He was so knowledgeable of the Navajo and Hopi tribes- prob due to his degrees and experiences with them one on one for over 30 years. I would def recommend this tour- great tide, timely stops and all the pictures we want! Really worth every cent. Please tip these your guys generously! Many have been out of work for extended periods and are just getting on their feet.
