This tour was awesome! Les was our guide and I can't imagine anyone else with as much knowledge of Native American history and the geology of the region. I learned a lot and saw some majestic views of the region.

His experiences and knowledge are entertaining and so informative, and we're so glad that you enjoyed your tour with him. Majestic....what a great way to describe the views on this tour.

I took the tour from the Embassy Suites in Scottsdale. The ride was enjoyable due to the numerous stops we made to break up the distance. The driver, Memo, was great. He chatted and explained various aspects of the area, plant life, history, etc. as we rode along. The weather turned cool and cloudy as we neared the rim, but Memo kept driving to different areas. We found numerous spots that had a wonderful view. We even stopped along the way and took pictures of a huge elk in the woods.
Lunch was perfect, the van was comfortable and clean, and Memo made sure everyone was enjoying their time.

Cheryl, thank you for taking the time to leave a 5-star review! We're happy to hear that you appreciated the way we break up our tours to maximize your comfort and keep you from feeling like you are stuck inside a vehicle all day. I bet the cool weather at the Canyon was a nice reprieve from the heat of the Phoenix area, and how great that you got to see some local wildlife as well. Memo is a pro when it comes to finding the best viewpoints, no matter the weather, and we're so glad that you enjoyed your time with him. Thanks again for your review and we'll be sure to let Memo know what an impression he made!

My husband & I took this day tour yesterday to see the Grand Canyon for the first time. What an experience! Breathtaking views and an all around wonderful day. Here are a few reasons that made taking this trip with DETOURS of Arizona so worthwhile:
1. We were picked up & dropped off right from our resort in Scottsdale
2. We were a small group of only 9 people in a large comfortable van
3. The views driving up before the GC were incredible and made even more special by the many interesting facts and stories provided by our tour guide Mike
4. Lunch is provided- we just placed our order & picked it up on the way
5. Eating our box lunch as we sat on the rocks along the outer rim of the GC was indescribable!
6. Walking the outer rim was my favorite experience. The trail is wide and paved & can be done at a very leisurely pace for those who aren't in the best of shape :) or you can just find a lovely spot to sit a
nd take in the view.
Would highly recommend using this company for any trip and would definitely ask for Mike again !

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour

The Grand Canyon as our primary target for visiting Arizona and this tour was absolutely the best way to cover as much as we did in a day. Our guide Jason picked us up promptly at 6:40am which would be the start of a long (13 hours from Scottsdale) day. Our major stops were at Sedona, Grand Canyon (a few stops over 3 hours) and the Cameron Indian trading post on the way back. Jason was great at providing historical as well as local information at all the stops. He was professional and helpful and always willing to engage in conversations. The van was comfortable and our group was only 10 people which made for an intimate trip. We would recommend this tour to anyone who is coming from the Phoenix area. We definitely would not have seen as much if we tried to do this ourselves. Thanks very much Jason.

Hi Hankwk-2017 and thank you for leaving such a fantastic review! We keep our tours pretty small so you can really get some one-on-one time with your guide, and we're glad that you felt that with Jason. He really knows his stuff when it comes to Arizona, and we will be sure to pass along your kind comments. The best part about doing one of our guided tours is that you get to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful sites around you - without worrying about the time or missing anything. Thanks again for joining us on tour!

We were in Phoenix for a baseball tournament and once that was over I wanted to do something fun and beautiful. This tour popped up on my TripAdvisor app.
What a great find
Dave picked us up on time and was a wealth of information. The drive was gorgeous through the Sonora desert, Sedona and then off course the bewildering Grand Canyon.
While we wished there would have been more time in the park, we were given time to take in the incredible views.
This is definitely a must when in the area.
Well done Dave!!

Quite a few people visit Arizona for sports tournaments or work functions, and our tours are a great way to do some sight seeing in the short amount of time that you are here. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the views from the van on the ride up to the Grand Canyon, and we'll be sure to pass along your compliments to our wonderful guide Dave as well.
