Pickup was prompt, the ride was nice, and we had a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. The stops were well-timed and of an appropriate duration. All the Grand Canyon stops were scenic and easy to make our way around. The boxed-lunch was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. It was a great day trip!

Daniel was our tour guide. He was absolutely wonderful. Very knowledgeable and courteous. He really cares about what he is doing and takes care of the people he is taking up to the Grand Canyon! My boyfriend and I got engaged on the South Rim and he found the perfect spot and took pictures for us. He went above and beyond and we are grateful. Thank you Cam and Anna

A must-see natural wonder of the world!

I booked this trip with Detours Arizona and must say this is a trip you have to take if you're in the Phoenix metro área. John, our tour guide, made the day a very interesting and insigthful one. John demonstrated to be a very knowledgeable guide that made this trip a very special. Highly recommended!
