Your first stop is at Williams along Route 66. Get the chance to experience this famous American highway before moving on to the Grand Canyon. Once you reach the Grand Canyon, explore one of its widest and deepest sections. Highlights include the Hopi House and El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village, scenic lookouts on East Rim Drive, and other nature walks and cultural exhibits. Afterward, head back to Phoenix or Scottsdale for drop-off at your departure point.

Jennifer was on time, knowledgeable, congenial and service oriented. We learned a lot on the way to the Canyon. She was very accommodating with bathroom breaks. The only improvement we needed was cup holders on the van.
