Itinerary:

Day 1: Sedona – Grand Canyon (L) 
Your 2-day tour begins in Sedona with hotel pickup by comfortable coach in the morning. Set off on one of the most scenic drives in the country, tracing the red rock buttes of Sedona to Oak Creek Canyon, where you can capture limitless postcard views. Journey through Coconino National Forest, the largest ponderosa pine forest on the continent, and see the dormant volcanoes of the San Francisco Peaks.
Stop for a stroll among the sleeping volcanoes and lava fields, and visit the last volcano to erupt in Arizona (back in 1064) at Sunset Crater National Monument. Learn about how the geology was used by the Apollo Mission in the 1960s to train astronauts and practice Rover missions, and then delve into the history of this region at Wupatki National Monument, a site of well-preserved ruins of the Sinagua American Indians. Hear about the unique survival tactics required to live in this harsh landscape as you check out the Ballcourt and the Kiva (ceremonial gathering point for the tribe). 
Head onward to the Navajo Nation Reservation, where you have some time to browse the great selection of arts and souvenirs. Lunch is included at the festive, Southwest-style Cameron Trading Post.
Finally, make the last stretch of the drive to Grand Canyon National Park, where you'll cruise along the South Rim for stops at picturesque viewpoints. Head to Grand Canyon Village to enjoy more views or take a nature walk before checking into your basic yet comfortable accommodations in the mid- to late-afternoon. You then have free time to explore Grand Canyon on your own; take advantage of the park's free shuttle, and enjoy dinner at your leisure at one of the restaurants near your accommodation. 
If you want to take a helicopter ride into the canyon tomorrow, let your guide know before you're left on your own for the evening.

Overnight: Maswik Lodge in Grand Canyon National Park

Day 2: Grand Canyon – Sedona
Your morning is free to enjoy the park at your leisure. If you've opted for the helicopter tour, you can look forward to amazing aerial views of steep canyon walls and the Colorado River.

Traveler Reviews

    We were amazed at the scope of information shared by our tour guide on the way to the Grand Canyon. She was very well informed, sharing bits of history, geology, culture as well as pertinent facts about the flora and fauna. The stops along the way --especially the stop at the Wupatki Indian ruins-- added to our appreciation of the experience. We were very glad we opted for the two day tour because the extra day allowed us to enjoy the sunset and the sunrise at the Canyon. We also had time to use the free bus system to visit more look out points along the rim. Our tour guide left us with great suggestions on how to use the extra time at the Canyon. We were picked up by a different tour the next day for the return trip.

    This is an amazing experience into the sights of the Grand Canyon...the guide makes the trip...we had a great guide going to the canyon, hotel accommodations were ok, poor experience upon our return to Sedona

    The tour starts bright and early at 7am! We visited the Cameron Trading Post where we had a nice lunch and were blasted by an overwhelming amount of souvenirs. We finally ventured into the Canyon around 1pm from the eastern side. Driving west, we stopped along many vantage points for photos. My entourage stayed overnight and had a chance to see both the sunset and sunrise - well worth it. The bus retrieved us around 4:15 pm over one hour late and took almost 4 hours to get back to Sedona.

    Make no mistake - this tour is one long bus ride. Although we stayed overnight in GC, most of our group returned to Sedona that same afternoon which makes for one incredibly long day on the bus. We were glad to have stayed overnight....it's just too much bus time to do it in one day.

    Our guide was a plethora of information, friendly, and a good driver.

    Had a great time. The rooms at Maswik Lodge was clean and are a short walking distance from the South Rim. Although one of my traveling companions didn and #39;t agree, the price is reasonable for an overnight stay.

    we had a wonderful time. We were very glad that we chose to stay overnight there. The accommodations were comfortable. We got to see the Canyon in different types of light. The other people on the tour were friendly and the drivers were knowledgeable.
