Upon arrival at Phoenix airport on Sunday we already had a text that Grand Canyon was cancelled for Tuesday due to predicted bad weather resulting from Hurricane Rosa. Contacted them and they made some changes and had us stay two nights in Sedona instead of one, and did the Grand Canyon the next day instead. We had a perfect day for Grand Canyon and our guide Lynn was wonderful. Enjoyed it all immensely. We recommend Arizona Tours, great guides and no complaints.
We had a relaxing and enjoyable trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Our tour was run by Ma Pa Travels of Arizona, for Cool Destinations. The accommodations were good, the transportation was comfortable, and we got to see a lot. The tour guides in particular were great. We had Mr. Wayne for pick-up and drop-off from Phoenix; Al for a short tour of Sedona, and Kris for our day from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. Each one of them was friendly, obliging, and a wealth of information! They were always on time (earlier even) and considerate of our needs (we were two women traveling). We didn't always get a whole lot of time at locations along the way to the main destination (Grand Canyon), but the guides needed to accommodate both the one-day and 3-day travelers, so it was understandable.
I am glad that we were able to do the 3-day trip, which gave us plenty of time to take in the sights, hike, shop, eat, and relax, at both Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Had we done the day-trips, I imagine it would have felt a bit rushed (particularly at the Grand Canyon) and would have been a lot of driving.
Overall, a very good experience.
An outstanding trip. Having never been to Sedona or Grand Canyon, this was a trip that I won't soon forget. Each guide was thorough and communicative, especially a Navajo guide, Brian. I learned more about Native American History in 7 hours than I have in all my years of education. He was genuine, smart and funny. This trip provides a good balance of guides and time on your own. I had plenty of time to hike, eat the local cuisine and do plenty on my own. Sedona and the Grand Canyon were a dream. Truly grateful we have such an amazing landscape and history to enjoy. I recommend this tour!
I really enjoyed this tour of Sedona, the Grand Canyon and the many beautiful landscapes you see as you drive north through Arizona. The tour combined guided sightseeing with plenty of free time, and I found several hours to view various points along the Grand Canyon at my leisure. Thanks to our excellent tour guides.
I am from Mexico City, my trip to Sedona and Grand Canyon was absolutly wonderful, the organization was perfect, nice hotels, very nice gides on the tours, always on time... totaly recomended.
This was an amazing tour that I did with my two grandchildren ages 14 and 7. All of the arrangements that were made for us were exceptional and provided just the right balance between the actual tour activities and enough free time to explore on our own. The guides were all knowledgeable, courteous and friendly and the jeep excursion through Red Rock Tours in Sedona was something that should not be missed. Thank you also to the staff at Red Rock Tours for helping us plan the remainder of our day in Sedona as well. We enjoyed visiting Tlaquepaque and the Church of the Red Rocks on the trolley tour. Our trip continued to the Grand Canyon the following day with unexpected stops at the Wupatki Indian Ruins and a lava field which were absolutely amazing. We stopped at the Desert View Watchtower and several other look out points before being dropped off at the Maswik Lodge in the late afternoon. We still had plenty of time to see the Canyon on our own and did a helicopter tour the following morning. The hotel staff were gracious in making the taxi arrangements to and from the airfield. All of our scheduled pick-ups were confirmed by phone and we were picked up on time. This was a very easy trip to do and an unforgettable memory and an experience of a lifetime for all of us.
Excellent! Enough time to explore on our own, and all rides were on time, hotels very nice. Exactly as advertised.
Trip was fantastic! Each tour representative (driver and coordinator - Donna in Sedona) clearly was there to help us get the most out of our short visit. The accommodations provided through the company were conveniently located in Sedona and the Grand Canyon Park allowing us to make the most out of seeing each area using walking and the free bus in the Grand Canyon. The Yavapai Lodge in the Grand Canyon Park had a reasonably priced cafeteria with good food and was conveniently located to a general store with moderately priced souvenirs and a post office that enabled us to package and sends a multitude of misc. souvenirs from the trip back home. Recommendations by a tour representative in Sedona to the Cowboy Club restaurant for lunch were on the money. We had the "Sampler" that included bison bits, cactus fries, cilantro flat bread, prickly pear fruit sauce and a southwestern peanut sauce. A tour person in the GC Yavapai Lodge recommended a breakfast in the fancier El Tovar lodge. The decor, service and menu were well worth the morning visit. (I had blackened trout for breakfast plus all the other regular breakfast items). We passed on their fancy breakfast sweet pastries.
We did not realize when we got picked up in Phoenix (on time!) that the other people in the minivan were not necessarily on the same "tour" as us. The tour should be recognized as three legs...one to Sedona, at Sedona and to and at Grand Canyon and returning to Phoenix. Sedona is actually a brief stop on the one day trip to the Grand Canyon. We were actually returned to Phoenix from the Grand Canyon by another one day trip minivan. You will have multiple driver guides AND many different guests on each leg. The tour company is used to it and does an excellent job of taking care of its clients by coordinating the pickup and drop off times. One item to note, many of the Sedona galleries closed early (in October) making visits to them in the early evening somewhat limited.
Very good experience and super nice guides. Would recommend if you do not drive yourself.
