What people are saying about Tempe

The vastness of the canyon and Sedona left me speechless. This tour is great if, like me, don’t have the chance to drive a car and to experience few hours between the canyon and Sedona.

Eric, our guide, was great! He is very knowledgeable and accommodating! Doing both Sedona and Grand Canyon is a day is the best way to see Arizona if you have limited time.

I enjoyed listening to Kim pointing out things to see on the way. Every stop she had history to point out and helped us with pictures.
