We had an amazing experience. Jennifer did a great job. The only downside was the rough roads leadin in and out of the park. Pickup went stress free at a location close to our home. Would never hesitate to recommend the trip and company.

Instead of driving to the Grand Canyon, we took this small group tour. From pickup to drop-off, it was awesome & Steven was a great guide. Thanks!

We absolutely loved our trip to the Grand Canyon! We wanted to make a trip but with it being a 3-4 hour drive from Scottsdale, we didn’t want to drive there on our own. Our guide Stephen was so amazing, he was so knowledgeable and talked through everything we were seeing on the drive there, covering the history, landscape, social and cultural background, and more. Something we would’ve never gotten driving there on our own. The bus was comfortable, and we made stops every 1.5 hours or so. Definitely a long day, and while you have ample opportunity to get food and snacks, I’d definitely recommend bringing some water and snacks. We had about 3.5 hours in the park, with 3 stops for: pictures, a more guided stop, and 2 hours to explore on your own and get lunch - the El Tovar was great for lunch. If you’re considering visiting the Grand Canyon while in Pheonix/Scottsdale I can’t recommend this enough, very efficient, enjoyable, and comprehensive.

Seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time was magnificent, but with Steve as the guide, took it to new levels. Educated, entertaining, just top notch what you’d want from a Guide!!! Thanks to Steve and Cool Destinations!!!!

My family and I came to Phoenix so that we could finally see the Grand Canyon. I booked this trip so that we didn't have to drive ourselves and we could ALL enjoy the drive. Our tour guide, Malcolm, was phenomenal. He taught us so much about Arizona on the drive up to the GC. We enjoyed stopping at Williams so that we could get some Route 66 souvenirs. When we got to the Canyon, we couldn't believe how spectacular it was. We had a small group and had plenty of time to enjoy a walk, lunch and even shop. Malcolm took us to 4-5 of the best views.I would recommend to anyone doing this tour to bring their lunch. We went in the winter and the eateries were crowded. We ended up eating outside on a bench w/ our picnic lunch. The sun was shining and it was awesome!! I am glad we brought something rather than wasting time standing in line :)Thank you DeTours!! This family made great memories on our trip!!
