Begin your 13-hour tour to the Grand Canyon with pickup from your lodging in the metro Phoenix area between 6:45 and 7:45 a.m. Board a comfortable vehicle with your driver and your group of five people or fewer and head toward the Grand Canyon.

Stop to visit key attractions along the roughly 4-hour drive, like historic Route 66, the Cameron Trading Post, or Sedona. Your small-group tour can be curated to best fit your interests.

Then, take a 4-hour tour of the Grand Canyon; your guide will take you to all of the best viewpoints and overlooks the park has to offer. Main attractions in the park include Grand Canyon Village, Yavapai Point, and Desert View Watchtower.

Return to Phoenix at the end of the tour.

Please note: A minimum of two and maximum of five people is required per booking.

I don’t remember for certain. Why don’t you call Steve Gerhardt at Arizona Scenic Tours 480-459-7144 and he can give you current pricing? A great trip.
