Small-Group Grand Canyon Complete Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff

590 reviews
The Grand Canyon National Park is 1,902 square miles (4,926 square kilometers), and it can be intimidating navigate such a large area alone. This Grand Canyon guided tour makes it easy to explore the park’s most impressive areas without getting lost or overwhelmed. Plus, you stop by treasures such as Crater Volcano National Monument and Wupatki National Monument on your way to the South Rim and East Rim.

Sort of like what they say about a garage sale: one person's trash is another person's treasure. For us it was the former. As many "terrible" ratings indicate, the main road leading into the arboretum is a total disaster: bumpy, dusty, dusty, did I mention dusty. My first job after leaving this place was to get to the nearest car wash. There should be a warning sign before you get on this road. Realizing covid-19 has probably impacted the operations, this place was totally uninspiring. We had originally decided to visit because of an ad in the Phoenix H & G magazine which mentioned there was an exhibit of yard art by metal workers on display and for sale. Quite the joke. A few pieces that you could also probably pick up at a local nursery or Home Depot. And, if by chance, you did want to purchase a piece there was no one there to help. The gardens, pathways looked like they hadn't been maintained in awhile. Sad place. I highly recommend to spend your time on a nice quiet nature path in Flagstaff or elsewhere.

It’s a rough ride to get to the Arboretum but once your there, it’s so peaceful. We took the outer nature trail and the signage was educational. It was so peaceful, you could hear the wind whistling through the tree. Everything was closed due to Covid so I would be interested to go back when there’s more going on. Restrooms were open.

Beautiful flowers blooming everywhere, enjoyed bird watching and the butterfly pavillon. Got to see a duck and 10 ducklings on the pond. Enjoyed sitting on the bench looking at the trees and flowers and white puffy clouds going by.

This was my third visit; this time with my wife for a picnic lunch and casual hour before driving back to Las Vegas. My slight disappointment was only a fault of my own. I'm a photographer and on previous visits in June I've been greeted with flowering fields; blooms everywhere; and a butterfly house I could stay in forever. Well, the weather this spring was colder for a longer period and unfortunately there were very few flowers and even fewer butterflys. ON THE POSITIVE SIDE! Staff is always kind and informative. Our picnic lunch was a delight. Just the two of us; a few birds and a few critters. Although only a few butterflys were on exhibit; we stil enjoyed ourselves. Absolutely clean and inviting. I'd just call first if you have specific interests before taking the rugged packed dirt drive in.

On Sunday, May 9th, the weather was great so we decided to have lunch at Wildflower at the Sawmill then go to the Arboretum for a couple of hours. To get there you turn off the main road onto Woody Mountain Rd and go four miles. The first 1.5 miles or so is paved. Then the road is gravel. The first 1/2 mile isn't too bad but then the road turned into a washboard on steroids. Our Lexus vibrated so bad we weren't sure if the fenders we're going to stay on. After about a half mile of this we gave up and turned around. We really wanted to enjoy the afternoon at the Arboretum but it wasn't worth damaging our car. Why they don't grade it every spring to get rid of the washboard bumps is beyond us. It certainly would improve their revenue stream.
