Amazing trip in Arizona! We everything we wanted to see and then some! Highly recommend!
Our tour guide Noel was awesome! We saw everything that we wanted to see and enjoyed the day! It was so nice to not have to think about how to get to the next place… we just sat in the car and enjoyed the views learning about the history, natives, and culture! He even shipped back sunglasses that we thought we lost! He went above and beyond!

Absolutely Fabulous!
I attended a convention in July staying at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort. There were 8 of us booked for the Grand Canyon tour.
What an absolutely awesome tour. Our guide Eddie “Van Canyon” made this tour the BEST tour I have ever been on! His knowledge, welcoming personality, friendliness, and caring character was fantastic!
He was a walking encyclopedia of Grand Canyon knowledge.
We were treated like royalty.
This tour was the most amazing and most memorable memory of this great trip to Arizona.
I HIGHLY recommend this tour company.
The van was spotless, the trip fantastic and the guide- Eddie amazing! A+

The Trip of a Lifetime
Jul 2021
Steve and Arizona scenic tours was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our family of 7 chose 2 tours with Steve - Grand Canyon/Sedona and Apache Trail. Both tours were amazing! From first contact, Steve was professional, kind and patient, answering all our questions and adjusting the tours to fit our needs. His emails were clear as to what to expect from the tours as well as how payment would work.

The van that transported us was clean, comfortable, and had a cooler full of water to keep us hydrated.
Steve shared a great deal of information about the area and again, answered many of our questions (mostly about the cactus). Although the ride to/from the Grand Canyon was long, Steve's commentary (dad jokes), and frequent stretch breaks, made the ride more pleasant.
Listening to Steve speak about the area, you can tell he is passionate about what he does.
My father ended up in a wheelchair for the trip, and Steve went above and beyond to make him feel comfortable - even pushing his wheelchair at the Grand Canyon, and keeping him company when my father was too tired to continue.

The Apache/Steamboat was also amazing, and Steve joined us on the boat. Again, offering a great deal of information about the area we were in. He even let us stay a little longer at the ghost town so my daughter could ride the zip line!

At the last minute, my husband and I decided we wanted to do another tour, unfortunately, Steve and his company was already book! Once my husband and I secured a vehicle, Steve took the time to map out a route for us to do on our own! This is the kind of personal and kind service you will receive from this company.

I completely recommend Steve and Arizona Scenic Tours to enhance your vacation. We started out as clients, but ended our time as friends, that doesn't always happen.

Feels like a VIP pass or a behind-the-scenes look for the state of Arizona
John was our guide and was a delight. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its history—not just the Grand Canyon, but both Arizona at large and the National Park system as well. His joy for the park was infectious, and the flexibility afforded us with our smaller group made it feel almost like a day out with friends. The trek to and from Phoenix is a bit long, but the stories and vistas are well worth it!

Day Trip worth the Drive
Noel was a great guide! His many facts and attention to detail were spot on. He even took the initiative to look up plants with me and stop when we spotted wildlife! I recommend knowing what you want to see and do, as we went in blind, without a plan. But no worries, Noel devised a plan for us and it was worth every road we went down!!

Amazing!!!
Mac was an amazing guide!!!!! Very personable and knowledgeable. From the time he picked us up he was positive and upbeat and was great at facilitating discussions. We now know so much more about Arizona's history and topography.
The helicopter tour is well worth the money. You don't get to see the expanse of the canyon from the ground. I would highly recommend Detours and especially Mac!!!

Great journey to Canyon
Jan 2020 • Couples
Great service and wonderful driver guide Noel who explained so much about Arizona history, the history of the places we passed along the way to the Canyon from Scottsdale. Minivan was comfortable and the family that went with us were fun to be with. We toured a half dozen spots along the south rim and Noel explained special aspects of each one. A very long day trip but well worth ii

Friendly guide and excellent canyon views
Nov 2019
We were so pleased with our Custom Grand Canyon Day Trip.
Our guide (John) was very friendly, funny, and personable. He was attentive to our needs as we drove to and from the Canyon, stopping for bathroom and stretching breaks, and told us interesting facts about Arizona, the desert, the canyon and all kinds of things long the way.
He took us to both main look-out points, but also added in some special spots where the crowds were a little more sparse and you could take a peaceful moment to enjoy the beauty of the canyon.
He drove us home through the painted desert (which was a real treat at sunset!).
Overall, we has a wonderful time and would absolutely do this tour again.

Thanks very much for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed the day. It is very nice that the scenery on the way to and from the Canyon has so much to offer, which makes the whole day nice. The Painted Desert is quite unique!
