My wife and were recommended to book a tour thru the Pink Jeep tours which is all over the place in the Phoenix and Sedona area. The tour we wanted was not available and they recommended Detours to us. We were beyond satisfied with the tour. Our tour guide was one of the most knowledgable guides we have ever had. He made the all day tour fly by (in a good way!) Def gives this company a chance. They made our vacation even better than we thought

Our tour guide Mark was very nice and knowledgeable of the history of Phoenix and Scottsdale. He made everyone feel welcome and you can tell that he enjoys his job. We toured for about 4 hours and had almost 1 1/2 hours for lunch and to walk around Old Town Scottsdale on our own. It was cool...like a scene from an old western movie! The tour was fun and worth it. If you get to Old Town Scottsdale, check out a restaurant called The Italian Grotto. The food was delicious..glad I went there for lunch! Overall, I had a great time.

Thanks for your 5-star review shantelg23! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your tour of Phoenix and Scottsdale. This is a great tour to take when you first get to the Phoenix area so you can familiarize yourself with the local culture and explore unique neighborhoods like Old Town Scottsdale. Thank you for the restaurant recommendation too! We'll be sure to try out The Italian Grotto! If you enjoy old western movie towns be sure to join us on our Tombstone tour as well! Thanks again for touring with us and we will be sure to share your kind words with Mark!

I've wanted to take my kids to the Grand Canyon for years. We finally got to do it with #DetoursofArizona. Brendan was an excellent tour guide and very informational. The experience will be a lifelong memory for my family.

Montana was our guide, and he clearly loves his job. He was enthusiastic, informative, and very punctual. I can't recommend my day trip route or tour guide highly enough! This was the ideal way for me to see the Grand Canyon with limited time in Phoenix. Thank you, Montana and DETOURS!

Thanks for the 5-star review Patty Ann and for your recommendation for one of our day trips! Our guided tours of the Grand Canyon are excellent for people who only have 1 day to see as much as possible! We're so glad that Montana helped make your limited time so memorable and we will be sure to pass along your thanks! We hope you try one of our other tours from Phoenix the next time you are in town! Thanks for touring with DETOURS!

Rob was our tour guide. He was amazing in his knowledge of the Grand Canyon as well as all stops that we visited. He kept us interested with his many stories. He called our attention to areas along the way which kept the travel time go by quicker. I recommend this Tour for fun and amazing views. We had a great group on this tour. My only suggestion would be to find another lunch spot. Our box lunch was mediocre with way too much bread which made it more like a sub sandwich. Wraps were offered but other bread options would be preferred.
