Our driver was knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. He took us all around Pheonix, then up the South Mountain where the view was spectacular. He shared a lot of knowledge about the native plants and the area with us. Then he took us to Old Scottsdale where we were dropped off to leisurely shop and have lunch before taking us back... More

Just want to thank Jeff S from Detours for putting together this wonderful private tour for the 19 of us plus one baby during the recent Christmas holidays. We were picked up from the Westin hotel in Scottsdale promptly at 7:30 AM in a beautiful luxurious bus. Jo Jo was our private tour guide for the entire day. He was... More

Excellent tour. If you only have one day to see The Grand Canyon, this is the one! Our tour guide, Jay G, was awesome. This is door to door. He took us to several great viewing spots and gave us time at each. His energy and enthusiasm about the Canyon and Sedona made this tour most enjoyable. This was a... More

My wife and I visited the Grand Canyon for the very first time, and Detours offered an excellent experience. Jojo, an affable German ex-pat who fell in love with the American West during study abroad in college, was a fantastic guide. He picked us up at 6:30 am at the Arizona Biltmore and maintained a consistently but not overbearingly enthusiastic... More

My family of five (ages 21-64) were picked up Dec 24 to enjoy a full day tour called the Apache Trail- Our guide - Johanees (JoJo) a really delightful and knowledgeable person who truly made the day enjoyable. You make a few stops along the way - one being a paddle boat tour and get to see incredible views. Another... More

The total tour was 13 hours round trip, but we were amazed at how quickly the time passed. That was mostly due to the interesting narrative that our driver, "Memo", provided. The view of the canyon itself defies a verbal description or a picture. Well worth the time, effort, and expense!

As one of the 7 wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is a must see that many people, even being from Arizona, rarely see more than once! Why? Because it can be a long trip to do it yourself.. BUT Detours solved that!! With a 7am start on the day we were able to have our breakfast on the... More

Wow are we happy you got to enjoy one of the 7 wonders of the world with us and your guide Dan. It truly is breathtaking and a helicopter is a great way to truly experience the Grand Canyon. We are glad you and your son enjoyed the tour and could spend that time together and the unique experience. Thank... More

Heard about Detours from the Concierge desk at my hotel! Our guide Jason knocked it out of the park, and provided our entire group with knowledge, passion and enthusiasm throughout the day! Jason and the Detours bus arrived promptly at 6.40am, and I could tell during those first impressions, he was someone who would create a memorable experience. And what... More

Tour Guide, Jason (Jay's) impeccable timing of departures and arrivals at various points throughout the trip makes the day go fast. His humour, positive attitude and genuine interest in each client makes for a great interaction. Very knowledgable about Sedona/Grand Canyon he adds enough history without it being too much of a lecture. Jay will say that the trip is... More
