I just got home from a tour with Detours on a day trip to the Grand Canyon. It was incredible. Last night I spent over $100 in taxi fare from Chase Field to Scottsdale. Then today I spend $155 on a full day (it is full, be prepared for a full day) to Sedona, Grand Canyon, Najavo Reservation, and some other quick stops for bathroom or stretching. Unbelievable value. Our guide, Memo, was great and he told us a lot about the areas vegetation, wildlife, elevation, and history.
I was looking at other tour companies before deciding on this one and I'm glad that I checked Yelp and TripAdvisor scores to make my decision. Don't be a dolt and pick this one! 3 hours around the park and multiple vantage points... Oh and lunch/water is included! Come onnnn!

First time to Arizona and would recommend Detours all the time. Richard our tour guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Arizona and the grand canyon.
A fun day with a personalized tour. Great memories!!!

The day started with our pick up time being changed from close to 7:00 am to the van arriving at the hotel at 6:20. Our driver was Chad and he did a great job providing information about the plants in the desert and the changes as we climbed in elevation. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable on the tour. Chad gives the impression that he really enjoys Arizona and sharing his knowledge about Arizona. He maintains his positive attitude the entire 14 hours which is impressive.
The scenery through Sedona was very pretty, but not enough time was available, it was basically a drive through with a stop for photo's and to pick up sandwiches. I did not get close enough to the rocks get the soles of my tennis shoes red. In my opinion, the tour tries to pack too many stops into one day and there was not enough time to really enjoy any of the stops. It takes a long time to drive into and back out from the trading post, which is basically a stop with a hotel, gas station and a store. Most of the items are not made on the reservation, the prices are high and the people are not friendly. It took longer to drive to the trading post than we had time to spend in it or look at the Little Colorado River and Canyon behind it.
Chad, could not have done a better job and I would recommend asking for him.
I would recommend dropping the trading post and increasing time in Sedona and The Grand Canyon, even better plan to stay at least one night at The Grand Canyon.

Decided to take a tour to Sedona and the Grand Canyon.. Was told by hotel that Detours was the way to go.. Chad was prompt and very welcoming. A positive attitude, accommodating to all the folks on the tour. Great with the kids that were also on the tour. Very informative, and thorough. Wish he would have had the cool turtle vans I heard about. However, he made it up for it with his expertise. I will definitely use detours again, and will ask for Chad..

Here at Detours we strive to be the best and in order to be the best we must have superb guides. Chad is our newest addition to the family and just one of our great guides in our eclectic group who help to make Detours an amazing tour company. We are glad that you got to experience your tour with Chad. He joyfully calls the Southwest his home and enjoys sharing all of his knowledge of Arizona with his guest, guaranteeing a great trip. Next time that you are in Arizona, join us on another tour and request Chad, we promise it will be a memorable experience.

Dan took us on a tour to Hoover Dam, from our Las Vegas hotel. He was very familiar with the area, and had so many great insights to share with us, both coming and going to the tour. He made sure we knew how to access to tour at Hoover Dam, and met us afterward with cold water. Water and snacks were also supplied on the van. Dan made the trip so enjoyable and informative!!
