What To Expect

Meet a driver at your Sedona hotel for pickup, then begin the 109 mile (175 km) trip to the Grand Canyon. The drive itself is a highlight, following a route through the scenic Oak Creek Canyon to views of the San Francisco Peaks, a volcanic mountain range that towers over the surrounding landscape.

You’ll see the otherworldly rock formations of the Painted Desert, and take a break at the Cameron Trading Post, where you can browse handicrafts and artwork made by local members of the Zuni, Hopi, and Navajo tribes.

When you arrive at Grand Canyon National Park, you’ll have views down into the Little Colorado River Gorge, and pause at a series of overlooks for views into the canyon. See the Desert View Watchtower that looms at the edge of the South Rim, get the most expansive views on the South Rim from Lipan Point, then visit Yavapai Point, where a 600-foot (183-meter) drop exposes layers of the Grand Canyon’s 1.8 billion-year-old rocks.

Finish your time at the South Rim with dinner at one of the national park lodges, then begin the return trip to Sedona, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Our guide, Steve, was awesome! He was fun and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The best thing about Steve was he adjusted the trip to meet the feel of our group. We stopped at 5-6 different spots to get different views of the canyon. He knew the best place to see the sunset for the time of year. He encouraged each couple (there were 4 couples on our tour) to find “your spot” for watching the sunset. He helped us find a little ledge to sit out on and even took a picture of us from afar (see photo of the canyon with our silhouette on the far right). The best part of the sunset wasn’t watching the Sun (or ball as Steve called it) go down. The best part was looking where the sun was still shining on the canyon and seeing the colors change. We highly recommend this tour!

The whole experience was great Stevee was very accommodating, friendly and super knowledgeable Food was good Van was comfortable ! We had a great day, thank you!
Great tour, substandard dinner
Richard_S, Mar 2024
Brad was great, and very informative. The canyon itself was, of course, amazing, so we did get what we signed up for. The one disappointment was our dinner, which had to be rescheduled for after the tour, so rather late, and was also moved from the promised "national park lodge" to the restaurant at the Cameron Trading Post. I had no expectation of anything grand, and I am not a picky eater, but the meal was nearly inedible, ending with a stale cookie in a plastic wrapper. Otherwise, we were very glad we took the tour.

Girls trip to beautiful Grand Canyon. Love the ease of booking through Viator. Annual trip to a different state and it was Sedona Arizona this year.
100% worth it! Beautiful sunset!
Jenn_P, Feb 2024
This was a great tour! Stanton was amazing and was super great with our young kids! We had the best time exploring the Grand Canyon south Rim and watching the sunset at the Grand Canyon. Stanton showed us all the best places and found us a sunset spot that we had all to ourselves!! (We went Feb 2024). I’m so glad we did a tour versus doing it ourselves.
