Thank you and your staff for our Grand Canyon & Sedona trip in the luxurious Lincoln Navigator! Rachel was a big help and very pleasant to work with. We spent a full day with day with Bruce. He was so informative, warm, personable and humorous. My wife and I were able to spend special time with our sons seeing a part of our country that is majestic and full of so much history. Bruce fed our family with facts from the terrain to the various habits and history of the American Indians. This gentleman enhanced our experience tremendously. His knowledge and wit made a long day enjoyable and something we won't forget. Thank you for connecting us and Bruce together for a great experience.

This was without a doubt the best tour I ever had!

We had family out for Thanksgiving and wanted to see the Grand Canyon without driving. There were 9 of us and I called and spoke to Rachel who was absolutely fabulous on the phone in helping me book a private vehicle for our group. It was very important for me that we were not sitting in rows in some mini-van or anything like that and Detours totally blew my expectations away with our private mini-bus! Each person had their own leather captains chair WITH a USB plug below for charging phones on the long ride. (Not all vehicles have the chargers, but we were told this was a new one and it was a great bonus, especially to get our phones recharged after all the photos we took!) Our vehicle also had a bubble like sunroof / dome at the front to see more of the great view while driving. It was totally fantastic! Since there were 9 of us, we had a few empty seats for our coolers, bags, and snacks.

Our driver/tour guide Mark was absolutely incredible! He was so knowledgeable, funny, and really did everything in his power to make sure we did the tour exactly the way WE wanted to! The tips he knows from his experience like "Maybe you want me to stop at Subway on the way up to take subs in, so you're not wasting hours at the park in line for a restaurant" are so helpful! Mark was a true professional and took such great care of us. He even offered to stop for dinner on the way home if we wanted. We already discussed that we plan to request him for our next trip when we try Antelope Canyon. Request Mark - you will not be disappointed!

It was even better that we could get pickup at our hotel that wasn't listed because we were a private group. Everything was absolutely top notch!

We arranged for a private full day Grand Canyon tour with stops in Sedona, Cameron Trading Post. Bruce was our guide/driver. We had a group of four (2 adults, 2 children). Our vehicle was large, clean and new SUV that was very comfortable. The vehicle had a roof that was mostly glass which was fantastic for looking at the scenery too/from the Grand Canyon. Bruce was knowledgeable about all areas during the tour as well as teaching our family a lot about the history of the Grand Canyon. Bruce knew which entrance was best for avoiding the VERY long lines to enter the GC National Park (giving us SO much more precious time to form great memories) along with great recommendations for dining. We felt the cost of the tour was worth it because Detours KNOWS how to create a wonderful experience and employs professionals of the highest caliber. We'll definitely use Detours again when we return to the area (which we definitely will).

We traveled to Phoenix from Florida for my graduation and wanted to see Grand Canyon. The price is worth it! Our tour guide Mark who is the best picked us up at our hotel and tailored the tour to areas we were interested in. He was very knowledgeable, fun, kind, and picked out amazing locations for pictures and souvenirs! This was such an amazing trip and I highly recommend the private tours! It may seem pricey however to have someone drive go through traffic in Phoenix and take you places is worth it! If we didn’t do this tour we would of missed out on a great adventure! I give them A++, 5 stars etc. ask for Mark he is great! Thank you to the staff for setting up the tour and introducing Mark! Give him a raise !! He’s amazing!!

We're delighted to hear we were able to get you out to see the Natural Wonder that is the Grand Canyon! Our guides do an exceptional job when it comes to personalizing both our day tours and private tours, that is what makes half the trip! The other half, well, lets just say The Grand Canyon speaks for herself. Thank you for the kind, generous words. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to show you what makes that National Park so Grand! We hope to see you again sometime! Until then, Nathan DETOURS

It was the worst experience I've ever had! 104 degrees and not AC! 13 people in the same van without air! Plus what you advertise as a comfortable transportation is not true! We rode in an old van, uncomfortable seats for 12 hours ride, where you can’t even lay your head because every bump from the road was felt, grinding! And without sound system at all to listen the guide!!!

Our tour guide, Jason, was wonderful! All of us learned a lot from him and he made the experience memorable. He went out of his way to get us to the places we wanted to see. The Grand Canyon is truly stunning. Thank you Detours!
