Joe and Ed were wonder mule wranglers. They kept us safe and entertained. We spent night at Phantom Ranch. Views were amazing and scary. Animals and history of the area was fascinating. Thank you!

We booked the 3hr trip and were staying near Sedona, so our Noon start meant leaving pretty early. They ask that you check in the day before or at least an hour early the day of your trip. My goal was to check in at...More

We could not get into the down and back trip because it was full so booked this as an alternate. We had already hiked into the canyon, so this was a different perspective along the rim. Oscar the bus driver was great. Funny guy and...More

Didn’t book the ‘down and back’ trip in the canyon far enough in advance - plus it’s a pricey (though worth it) overnight endeavor and we only had time for a day trip. Hoped the Canyon Vista ride would give us an experience (exposure and...More

I think it was 8 to 8, but I am not certain. Highly recommended to call ahead. Plus you must call 2 days before the ride to verify the reservation. Good time to ask that question.
