After departing the Scottsdale area, Sedona is your first stop. You will drive through the entire Sedona area, including uptown Sedona and the full length of Oak Creek Canyon. Guests will have a chance to photograph the distinctive red rocks, stretch their legs and often pick up lunch from a Sedona restaurant to take as a picnic to the Grand Canyon.
The tour then passes through Oak Creek Canyon, a scenic byway that winds through 2,000 vertical feet of red walled canyon to emerge in a ponderosa forest. While at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, guests will have a three-hour guided tour that includes a 50-minute helicopter tour over the deepest and widest part of the Grand Canyon.
Guests will also have an opportunity to walk along the rim, shop, have lunch, or just relax and drink in the view. While in the Grand Canyon, you will explore a 30-mile section of road that winds along the rim of the canyon, showcasing the best views and canyon's history along the way.
Returning to Scottsdale from the canyon, you will enjoy views of the Navajo Nation and the Painted Desert, with a stop at an authentic Navajo trading post. Total duration is 13.5 hours.
