Grand Canyon Tour
Take in the incredible views of the Grand Canyon. This one-day tour is for those that want to see the Grand Canyon, but do not have the time for a two-day trip.
Take the “Loop Tour” for the most time at the Canyon of our single day options, and visit overlooks at the Grand Canyon Village, Yavapai Point and Desert View Watchtower, for incredible views of the canyon! Then exit the park to the east, taking the scenic route through the Painted Desert, along the Little Colorado River Gorge. This tour makes the most of a one day journey to the Grand Canyon. We choose the overlooks especially due to their unique differences, so that you can experience the best that the Canyon has to offer!! The Rimside Lodges of The Village…. the panoramic views of Yavapai Point…. and the incredible Colorado River views and brilliant cliffside colors of Desert View. There are three options for spots to visit on the way. Choose from either the Williams – Route 66 historic area, OR visit the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Nation OR Montezuma Castle National Monument, a Sinagua Cliff Dwelling Ruin. More info upon booking.
Or… opt for the “Village Tour” option and pass through Sedona on the way. Many potential visitors to Arizona have heard of the beauty that is Sedona. For first-time visitors with only one day to tour, this is a very good option. Our three stops in Sedona are: Bell Rock Vista, Chapel of the Holy Cross, and Uptown Sedona. Followed by a scenic drive through Oak Creek Canyon and on to the Grand Canyon for visits to the Grand Canyon Village and Yavapai Point. The Village and Yavapai Points are must-see options for the short visit to the Canyon. Historic rimside lodges such as The El Tovar Hotel and Bright Angel Lodge at the village, and the Geology Museum and panoramic views of Yavapai Point should not be missed.
Each tour option lasts approximately 13 to 14 hours. There are opportunities for tour guests to get lunch on all tours. On these longer tours, there is also a pit stop on the return to the Phoenix area at a spot with snacks and food options. To maximize time on the Village Tour, ask about “lunch to go” in Uptown Sedona, which can be eaten in the tour vehicle during the drive between Sedona and The Grand Canyon.
