Full-Day Tour of Grand Canyon National Park from Phoenix-Scottsdale
US$170.00
Overview
Visit the Grand Canyon on this full-day tour from Phoenix. On the way, pass through Oak Creek Canyon and the Navajo Reservation, and stop for lunch at the Cameron Trading Post. In the Grand Canyon, travel 25 miles (40km) along the South Rim, taking in Grand Canyon Village, the historic El Tovar Hotel, and several lookout points on South Rim Drive. Includes guide, transportation, and pickup and drop-off from select hotels in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
What to Expect

Your knowledgeable and professional tour guide will pick you up between 6:45 – 7:45 a.m. in a comfortable 10 passenger custom seated van. As you travel north through the Sonoran Desert and up to the Ponderosa Pine forest of northern Arizona, you will feel the temperature drop and witness the varied terrain with the changes in elevation.

You will experience a pleasant mingling of American, Mexican, and local cuisine with a lunch stop on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Cameron, Arizona, just 32 miles from the East entrance of Grand Canyon National Park.

Your personalized van tour spends up to 3 ½ hours touring the 26 mile east rim drive. From Desert View, the location of the historic Watchtower, to Grand Canyon Village and the Historic El Tovar Hotel, your Southwest Tour’s Driver/Guide is with your group throughout the day to give you their insights of the canyon, answer your questions and put you in your pictures with the spectacular Grand Canyon as a backdrop.

Our return trip makes a brief dinner/snack stop prior to returning to your pick up location.

depending what number stop you are about 60 minute to from parking lot to parking lot. We had no traffic entering park, this fluctuates with the season.
