3. Sedona: Grand Canyon Sunset Tour with Dinner
Ride in comfort and style as you travel to Northern Arizona in an air-conditioned vehicle that seats no more than 14 passengers for an intimate and personal experience. Experience fully narrated tours from some of the most knowledgeable and experienced guides in the Southwest.
If you are departing from Sedona, your tour begins as you ascend the Colorado Plateau through the lush Oak Creek Canyon. Over the 27 miles of winding roads, you leave the beautiful red rocks behind and ascend 2000 feet to the tall Ponderosa Pines.
Upon arriving in Flagstaff pick up the remaining guests, and travel past the dormant volcanoes of the San Francisco Peaks on your way to Grand Canyon National Park.
Your first stop is at the Historic Cameron Trading Post where you will have the chance to check out the Native American craftsmanship. Then as you reach the Grand Canyon’s East entrance from the Navajo Nation, you will see the Little Colorado River Gorge and the western edge of the Painted Desert.
Upon entering the Grand Canyon National Park, you will get your first views of the Grand Canyon and the mighty Colorado River at Desert View. Climb up to the top of the Watchtower Observatory, and learn about one of the achievements of famous architect Mary J. Colter.
Take some time to take in the beautiful panoramic views at different viewpoints along the South Rim of the canyon. Marvel at some of the widest and deepest scenic views the Grand Canyon has to offer.
From the South Rim, gaze 14 miles across to the North Rim. You will also visit the only point where you can see both Phantom Ranch as well as the Kaibab Suspension Bridge. A complimentary dinner is included on this tour.
The journey culminates as your guide takes you to the ideal spot to have an opportunity to see an amazing array of colors, shadows, and lighting that are the hallmark of a Sunset at the Grand Canyon. Relax and enjoy the ride back to your hotel as you reflect on your Grand Canyon experience.
