Settle in for a long day you will never forget. Detours haas it down to a science and the partnership with Maverick Helicopters makes it a once in a lifetime thrill! Our tour guide Rick picked us up Ar our hotels in a comfy van. I don't think there is anything Rick doesn't know about Az! First stop is Sedona... More

Any question asked, he was able to answer straight away - it was impressive! As well as his evident experience and professionalism, he was... More

Booked a trip for 4 based on brochure stating large captains chairs for all with large windows for viewing. We were the last pick up and relegated to the rear of the bus with no captain chairs available. This was a 12 hour tour on Sept. 13th. By the time we returned the tour had climbed to 14 + hours...

We did this tour on September 10, 2014 and it was wonderful. Our tour guide (Montana) was very knowledgeable. He made the trip lots of fun. Our fantastic country, the good ole USA, has beautiful scenery and we just saw some of it from the comfort of a brand new tour van. We were picked up at our resort and... More

We had a reservation of 5 people and at first planned on driving ourselves from Phoenix however, we were referred to this tour and we were so glad we booked. Our tour guide William was awesome. We would have never seen all the sights and received all the important information about the area on our own. We was definitely a... More

Pray that you are not the last pick-up of the group and stuck in the back of the big van for over 8 hours! Quite a bit of heat rises up between the seats on the driver's side which the A/C does not come close to combating. Plus, by the time our windows came up on sights of interest that... More

My husband and I booked Detours in conjunction with our 21st wedding anniversary trip to Scottsdale. We're thrilled we did. Chad was our guide for the trip, not only is he personable & engaging, he's got tons of knowledge & shares with the group. He interlaced stories and insight about beautiful Sedona, that we're now planning a separate/longer trip to... More

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our tour through Sedona, the Grand Canyon and Indian Trading post. Rick Riley was our tour guide and he took the time to introduce everyone and really brought us together as a group. Our adventure included driving through monsoon rains and a hail storm but Rick's enthusiasm kept us going. At... More
