As a novice traveler I have not been on a ton of tours but over the last few years I have been on quite a few. Hands down this was the best. Our guide Les was outstanding. Les was battling some laryngitis and fought through like a true champ. The tour starts early so be prepared. After a quick pit... More

Took the Grand Canyon tour yesterday. Picked up on time in Scottsdale, nice comfortable, heated, vehicle seating 13. Big windows, easy to see. Plenty of rest stops. Two stops in Sedona, included lunch on the go. Provided opportunity for helicopter tour, which most did. Dropped the flyers off for helicopter tour while others went to the Canyon. Picked up after...

I went on Day trips with Detours, Sedona and Tombstone. They are well organised with first class guides/ drivers. They will pick you up at your hotel and drop you back there the day is finished. My guide for tombstone was Montana, who had an excellent knowledge of all things connected with the history of this old Western town, he... More

We are so happy to hear you had a great time in Tombstone with Montana, and an equally great time with Jason in Sedona - they are the best!

7 of us took a private tour to Grand Cyn and Sedona. The entire trip was excellent and our tour guide, Jason M, was probably the best of the best. He was full of knowledge about AZ, history, movies, and so much more. I have lived in AZ for 20+ years and there was so much that I learned in... More

Seriously one of the best tours I have ever been on! John McGavock or ac (his Nickname) was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing! Because of Mac my wife and I were able to learn so much about Arizona, Sedona and the Grand Canyon. He took care of us throughout the day and definitely will bring other friends... More

This tour was just great. Exactly what we were looking for in a tour of the Phoenix area. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgable and informative. This is the perfect tour to get a good background on the area and know what else is available for you to do after the tour. Take this tour, you will love it!!!

I would say even if you live in Phoenix, this was a very informative tour. Memo was so knowledgeable about the plants and the history of the reservations that kept us intrigued to whole time.

On a recent visit to Scottsdale, we contemplated doing a day trip to the Grand Canyon. It seemed a doable 3 hour one way drive with our rental car. However, we attended a brief presentation by a charter tour company, Detours, that made us decide to go with them on a full day excursion. Good call! Our tour guide Les... More

Booked day tour the day before to Sedona Grand Canyon, picked up promptly at our hotel the following morning. Driver was courteous and knowledgeable. The 12seater was very clean, very comfortable, the ride was smoothe. We ordered lunch that we picked up on a later stop. There were sufficient photo op and washroom breaks. There was enough time to walk... More
