Our tour guide Joel was great. Explained sites along way. Cameron trading post was a great place to stop for lunch. We had a crystal clear day at the Canyon. Was our first time there. Joel was very accommodating. Very knowledgeable of the area and made sure we got the most of our time there.

This was a six hundred mile round day trip with a group of 10 people. The tours guide was just amazing, his passion for the area was almost tenable. He was full of factoids on the trip, very informative and interesting. We stopped at Sedona and then had lunch at the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo reservation.. It was... More

Thank you. Sacha10, for taking the time to leave us a review and the high recommendation. It is great to hear you were able to get a lot out of your tour. It sounds like you had an amazing day. The Grand Canyon tour is a long day but it really helps when you don't have to do the driving! More

We took the day tour to the Grand Canyon from Scottsdale. It is a full day, leaving around 7 and returning around 9 in the evening. A very long day, but totally worth it for the scenery through Sedona and the canyon itself. Stops in Sedona for shopping and lunch at the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo reservation. Wonderfully... More

We took the Grand Canyon via Sedona tour with Will as our guide. We departed our Phoenix hotel at 7 a.m. (right on time), and returned at appx 9 p.m. Between those hours was an amazing amount of information and beautiful scenery beyond expectations. Will is a very informative, thoughtful, upbeat, and humorous guide. There were 9 persons (age 30... More
