Begin your full-day tour with pickup at select Phoenix-Scottsdale hotels (or head to the central meeting place). Relax in your air-conditioned tour vehicle and enjoy the scenery.

Ride through the Sonoran Desert, and catch sight of the native saguaro cacti. As you increase elevation during the drive, trade in views of cacti for views of pine trees.

Your first stop is at Williams along Route 66. Get the chance to experience this famous American highway before moving on to the Grand Canyon.

Once you reach the Grand Canyon, explore one of its widest and deepest sections. Highlights include the Hopi House and El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village, scenic lookouts on East Rim Drive, and other nature walks and cultural exhibits.

Afterward, head back to Phoenix or Scottsdale for drop-off at your departure point.

I really enjoyed my trip. We thought about renting a car in Phoenix and driving up to the Canyon ourselves, but I'm so glad we went with Detours instead. I learned so much and the ride was very comfortable. Also, by the time we left...More
