Custom Grand Canyon Day Trip
The Grand Canyon is on just about every bucket list — make sure you see it with this day trip from Phoenix, which includes round-trip transportation from your hotel. A guided tour takes the planning and guesswork out of an ambitious day trip, helping you make the most of your time at the Grand Canyon and enjoy the scenery during the drive.
What to Expect
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.

Great Time For All

We had a crew of 13 and a service dog and Steve was amazing! I don't think there were any questions we didn't get answers to. Everything from elevation levels to cactus questions he was on it. Friendly and put up with our wild bunch,...More

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.
