Know More about this tour

Journey through the beautiful Arizona landscapes on this small-group trip from the Phoenix-Scottsdale area! Visit the Grand canyon and explore Route 66 on an exciting full-day tour.

After departing the Phoenix metro area, your tour travels through the expansive Sonoran Desert filled with the native saguaro cactus. The scenery begins to change with the increase in elevation and views of the cactus fade into pine trees. As you continue further into Northern Arizona, travel the outskirts of the Route 66 town of Flagstaff and from the highway, see the San Francisco Peaks among the seemingly endless Ponderosa Pine Forest, the largest contiguous forest of ponderosa pines in the world.

Williams will be your first stop along the tour for a chance to experience Route 66, the iconic American highway steeped in rich tradition. While in Williams, guests will have the opportunity to get their kicks on Route 66. Walk along the original route, explore the local shops, and capture souvenir photos highlighting a bygone era in classic American history. Also known as the Will Rodgers Highway, Route 66 is the most recognizable road in the United States and stretches 2,448 miles from Chicago to California upon completion. While you are enjoying Route 66, your guide will pick up your picnic lunch made fresh that morning.

Once at the Grand canyon South Rim, board a state-of-the-art helicopter for a 45-minute flight over the Grand canyon. You'll fly towards the eastern end of the canyon, following the Colorado River, over the picturesque Kaibab National Forest and through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the Grand canyon.
You will be picked back up by your guide and continue on to explore the Grand Canyon National Park. You can take in the natural beauty of the site by walking along the rim trail at one of the lookout points.

    The van we rode in was Very clean and had nice big windows!!! Our driver/tour guide Richard was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Our Maverick helicopter ride was breathtaking and we enjoyed the knowledge we received from our pilot, Dan.

    Great bucket list experience. Now I need to return for a raft trip through the canyon. My son did that in Boy Scouts.

    The guide was excellent. Knowledgeable, good driver and attentive. We found all the hotel pick-ups tedious as we were fist on and the hotels were very far apart. Could do with fewer pit stops. Long day but worth it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Stan was our very helpful guide with lots of knowledge and information. Friendly and helpful. The helicopter ride over the Canyon was out of this world. I would highly recommend. What a beautiful place and what a way to see it.
    The transport to and from was spacious and comfortable. If you’re not sure who to book with, I’d have no hesitation in recommending this company.

    Tour was great, but the helicopter ride was out of this world. Our tour guide, Les, was the best there is.

  • 02-Jan-2019

    The BEST way to see the beautiful Grand Canyon! Fred was a great pilot and was perfect how he advised us to look right and then turn our heads as we entered into the Canyon!

    Montana was a fantastic ground tour guide with lots of knowledge and insight to share. Unfortunately we were unable to do the helicopter portion due to poor visibility and weather conditions. Highly recommended tour!!

    All in alll it was a great tour. All be it, my tour didn't quite follow the tour description. There was a plus and and a minus here and there. The pick up at the hotel was a great convenience. There was a small detour to Sedona to pick up others. This was a plus. It gave a great opportunity to see red rock country. Spent about 25 minutes there. Took a photo or two. Then onwards to Williams. Spent about 30 minutes there and few photos taken. Note, the views and vistas along the way were spectacular. Next up is the helicopter tour. Cause of smoke in the canyon the helicopters can't fly into the greater part of the canyon. We can't do the 45 min tour. We are offered an abbreviated '30 min' tour just across and back. Actual time almost 25 minute with a 30 refund. Still a spectacular experience but not what was expected or described. Then we spent about a half hour or so on the rim and then the return back. I would have liked to have spent a little more time along the conyon rim. The views may not have been crisp but were amazing. I don't when if ever I would have the opportunity to go to the Grand Canyon again. Notes: there's a lot of driving involved. There's a lot of distances to cover. You do spend most of your time in transport. There are ample pit stops. I wouldn't have called lunch a lunch. A ceasar salad , two Oreos, tiny bag of chips, and a small apple a meal. When there's an opportunity to get something to eat along the way, do so or bring your own meal with you. It's 13 hours. Water is provided.
