“Sedona/Grand Canyon”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We took a tour of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Rick Riley was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and overall was a great tour guide! The Grand Canyon was beautiful and it was SO nice to have someone drive us there and show us around. I would recommend taking this tour if you are venturing to Phoenix for vacation! :)

“Grand Canyon Tour with William”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We booked a family trip to the Grand Canyon with Detours. I was very impressed by the willingness of the staff to explain the trip to me on the phone. Rachel was helpful and friendly on the several occasions I called. Our guide/driver was William. He was equally as friendly and very knowledgeable. He pointed out many interesting sites along the way. We stopped at several places to view the canyon, and each was more awesome than the one before. William knew his way around and we were able to enjoy or trip without the worry and hassle of trying to find things. The tour was well worth it and I would recommend it.

“William”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

We took a family tour with Detours up to the Grand Canyon departing from the Phoenix area early on Monday morning. The van picked us up at a designated area and we began the tour. Our driver William was very informative and pointed out attractions along the way. We made a lunch stop in Sedona which was beautiful but the stop was way too short, we would have liked to spend a little more time there and seen a few more of the sites. Lunch was included in the price of the tour and was very good. Most of us opted to eat in the van along the way to the Canyon, which gave us a little more time once we arrived. William stopped at many vantage points so we could view the canyon from different prospectives. William was very knowledgeable and answered questions we had along the way. He accommodated us by taking family photos for us upon request and was very friendly. Our only regret was that we didn't book an overnight trip so we could spend a longer amount of time in Sedona and possibly some time in Flagstaff along the way.

Thank you for taking the time to write such an incredible review of your Detours trip! William is a favorite, so we are glad that you enjoyed him! We do wish we could spend longer in Sedona, as it's a beautiful town, but we have to max out the day at 13 hours. We are so glad you enjoyed our tour and next time, we'd love to take you on our Sedona Day Tour! Thank you!

It's so much easier to have someone drive you around that knows the sights and local history. We had a great time with Larry and would definitely recommend Detours! Helicopter with Maverick is awesome too.
