This is our first trip to Phoenix and the Grand Canyon and we wanted to do it at our own pace so we arranged though the Plaza resort for Detours to pick us up at 7:00 a.m. For a full day at the canyon and then sunset at Sedona. Robert met us promptly in an ac ford expedition for the three hour drive to the canyon. He was knowledgable about the culture of the area, history of the state, cacti and other vegetation, just everything. Then when we got to the canyon he took us to the most beautiful locations. Avoided the crowds by going in the "back way." Had a bottle of wine (not Robert!) at the first stop at Lipan point and enjoyed serenity and 77 degree temps. Remember that the canyon is at about 7000 feet so its cool with a breeze. Then Robert showed us all other fabulous locations up to Tovar restaurant and we had lunch at the lodge overlooking the canyon. Then we drove to Sedona and Robert gave us the opportunity to shop in some of the quaint local shops before driving up to the mountain sunset. Not a more beautiful location ever. Then back to Scottsdale by 8:30. Robert could not have been more helpful. He let us enjoy the sites privately but was always there to answer questions. This is not a cheap trip ($750 for the day) but its a once in a life time one. You can take a bus or van with a group but going leisurely with Robert was first class in every way. Thanks Robert!
