Grand Canyon Sunset Tour From Sedona / Flagstaff
Duration: Full Day
Departs from: Hotels in Sedona and Flagstaff, AZ
Your Grand Canyon Tour starts off with a scenic ride from the Red Rocks of Sedona, through Oak Creek (one of the top 10 scenic drives in America) and towering Ponderosa Pines of Flagstaff. After meeting our Flagstaff guests, we drive past the dormant volcanoes that make up the San Francisco Peaks, on our way to the Navajo Reservation.
We'll make a stop at the Historic Cameron Trading Post, originally built in 1916 and one of the finest places to shop for authentic Native American souvenirs. You may also visit The Gallery, home of many breathtaking pieces of fine and historic Native American Arts and Crafts.
On the last leg of your journey from Sedona or Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon, you'll view the western edge of the Painted Desert and drive along the Little Colorado River Gorge. Upon entering the Grand Canyon National Park (entrance fees are included), you'll get your first views of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River at Desert View. Climb up to the top of the Watchtower Observatory, one of the crowning achievements of architect Mary Colter.
We'll pick you up at your hotel and give you a first class ride all through the Canyon. Enjoy the comfort of riding in a mini coach with large windows for excellent views! Spend all of your time looking at the beautiful scenery and wildlife!
Don't concern yourself with watching the road or following a map, we know the canyon inside and out. Our experts will show you the canyon in a better light than you can find. These naturalists truly know all that this canyon has to offer, and you won't want to miss what they can show and teach you.
After dinner, take a leisurely, -mile walk along the South Rim where you'll take in the breadth of the Grand Canyon as you gaze 14 miles across to the North Rim. We'll go between two of the most scenic points on the South Rim, with plenty of photo opportunities. Visit the only point where you can see both Phantom Ranch as well as the Kaibab Suspension Bridge. You'll be able to view over 1/4 of the Grand Canyon from this area, which is also one of the best spots to have the opportunity to see the amazing array of colors, shadows and lighting that are the Hallmark of a Sunset at the Grand Canyon.
