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.

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.

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.

    Excellent tour. Our driver/guide was truly skilled and we enjoyed listening to all the information he shared on our drive up to the Canyon. We were also pleased with the lookout spots he choose to stop at as we got our first views of the Canyon and the place he left us for the two hour free time.

    The entire experience was incredible. Aldo was so fun and really brought the long day vibrant energy. Definitely upgrade to the helicopter view. It was an amazing experience!

    Mark has a good knowledge of the places and he had been explaining and entertaining us all the way through the journey to the Grand Canyon. It was a great experience all together; last but not the least, the View from the helicopter is just worth watching it live, great tour !

    One of the most unforgettable trips ever. Long drive but with adequate breaks and a great guide who talked us through the changing landscape, wildlife and points of interest. If you don't want to do the helicopter trip, this is still a great tour and with the helicopter, it's amazing!

    Diane was an excellent guide! Loved her stories and knowledge on the tour. She also had great recommendations for places to visit during the trip. The helicopter tour was also amazing.

    This trip was magical! I have dreamed of getting to see the Grand Canyon since I was a kid--the helicopter experience is a MUST! I will never forget this adventure. I also can't say enough about our driver/tour guide Aldo--so incredibly warm, personable, charming and full of really interesting info about Arizona! Aldo made this trip a 100/10--could not have asked for a better guide. Everything ran smoothly and everyone was well taken care of! Book now--you won't regret it.
