Ride through the Sonoran Desert, and catch sight of the native saguaro cacti. As you increase elevation during the drive, trade in views of cacti for views of pine trees. Your first stop is at Williams along Route 66. Get the chance to experience this famous American highway before moving on to the Grand Canyon. Once you reach the Grand Canyon, explore one of its widest and deepest sections. Highlights include the Hopi House and El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village, scenic lookouts on East Rim Drive, and other nature walks and cultural exhibits. Afterward, head back to Phoenix or Scottsdale for drop-off at your departure point.

Since we were on a time budget, this tour made the most sense. Our driver, Bruce, was so knowledgeable, and very considerate of all passengers. He gave us lots of tips and insider hints. The views were spectacular.

Jennifer was on time, knowledgeable, congenial and service oriented. We learned a lot on the way to the Canyon. She was very accommodating with bathroom breaks. The only improvement we needed was cup holders on the van.
