“Tour to the Grand Canyon”

5 of 5 stars    Reviewed May 4, 2016

Yesterday, 5/3/16, my husband, daughter and I participated in the most amazing and knowledgeable tour of the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Navajo reservation. Kim was our guide and from start to end, she made the tour a dream come alive. Her knowledge about every aspect of the landscape, the wildlife, plants, scenery was a history lesson you wanted to hear and hear again. It was a full day but Kim was superb, awesome and she deserves a #10 for her dedication, professionalism and definite love of what she does. She has the best attitude in patience dealing with a group of varying ages. The tour was well worth the price! I highly recommend Across Arizona Tours and would do a repeat again (with Kim)!

"Grand Canyon/Sedona"

5 of 5 stars   Reviewed May 2, 2016

The Grand Canyon/Sedona tour was awesome and we highly recommend it! We had Eric as our guide who was very friendly and knowledgeable (my mom kept commenting that she felt like she was on PBS). We visited an Indian reservation where we got to shop around and experience Navajo food, viewed the Grand Canyon, and took a drive through Sedona which I think was my favorite part of the trip. While Arizona is very picturesque (even a drive on the highway is a sight to see), you definitely can't end your trip without a tour of these spots!

“One-day van tour of Sedona and Grand Canyon from Phoenix”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2016

The tour itself was structured in a way that suited me - minimum of time spent (wasted) in souvenir shops, maximum of opportunities to see the sights. Yes, a fair bit of driving, but it packs in a lot of different features of Arizona. Some of the party were doing the helicopter tour, so the rest of us had an hour and a half on the Grand Canyon rim - perfect for an energetic couple of miles along the rim trail as an antidote to sitting in the van for too long and escaping from the crowds.

But what really made the tour memorable for me was Dan the guide. He kept up a pretty continuous commentary, not just on the specific things we were seeing, but the cultural and historical context. What was particularly impressive was his breadth of knowledge - geology, plants, animals, history, politics, environmental, law, cultural, you name it, he covered it all in an accessible and fun way. Clearly a man with a real feeling for his adopted Arizona and an enthusiasm for conveying it.

I feel that I have ticked off seeing the Grand Canyon and Sedona (both spectacular and beautiful), Navajo Nation (thought provoking), etc - but more than that, I've acquired a real insight into this State.

Awesome, Amazing experience exploring/sightseeing Sedona, and the Grand Canyon. The experience started with booking the trip with Carole. She covers long hours answering the incoming calls. I never dealt with a auto answers. She was available for whatever. Our guide and driver was Kimberly. She was very knowledgeable and absolutely wonderful! She worked very hard accommodating everyone.
 Great spot for lunch and good break stops. With the long trip she played good music for quick naps. Great narator.
 For my husband and I, it was an experience of a lifetime. I recommend Across Arizona Tours.

Our Day trip to the Grand Canyon was awesome and amazing. For starters booking was easy and I was able to call company and get a person (Carole) everytime!! No recordings saying: press 1 for this and 2 for that! The entire trip was filled with indescribable panoramic views during travel while listening to our knowledgeable guide Kimberly. She was great and worked very hard accommodating all of us. Kimberly was the best!
The entire trip was made so easy. Great stops as needed.
The Canyon had Snow! Spectacular! Kimberly picked a great lunch stop. We stopped in Sonona for great pictures. We even got a look a narrative of downtown since one of the tourist was picked up and dropped back in the heart of downtown. Just a great trip ..Thanks to across Arizona tours!!

"What an amazing day"

5 of 5 stars   Reviewed January 20, 2016

We started by seeing the majestic Saguaro cactus by the roadside. Then we stopped to admire the Red Rocks of Sedona. No time to see the town, as we drove through. North of town on the old trail road we had a brief ice storm. All the trees were coated with ice for a magical view. After passing Flagstaff, we went toa Navajo Reservation and had a real great Indian lunch. It was like a Mexican pizza/salad on a soft bread. It was very inexpensive. Next, we made several stops along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was an amazing clear day, with some snow, accenting the beautiful scenery. We then went to the lovely hotel, shops, train station for a stroll around. We did see some wildlife, as it was off season, so not many crowds. The guide was amazing and seemed to know a lot about the area and where to stop. It was a long day, but worth it to see such an incredible place.

What a great tour. Eric, our driver and trip guide, was wonderful. He is knowledgeable, friendly and a confident driver. We were picked up outside our resort and he was right on time. Within 30 minutes we were all laughing, joking and actually enjoying a very long drive. We weren't able to see as much of Sedona as we would have liked because of icy roads. But that meant there was snow in the Grand Canyon! What a view!

My sister and I used Across AZ Tours for a city tour of Phoenix and Scottsdale. Kim arrived early and we were ready to go! She had so much local info and pointed out things we would never have seen on our own. A stop at the Heard Museum was included and much enjoyed.

Then the next day, Roger was our tour guide for the Sedona & Grand Canyon tour! Outstanding....and he knew all the best places for photos! This tour is ALL DAY....wish we could have stopped in downtown Sedona for some walking around but we did get good photos of the red rocks. And the Grand Canyon never disappoints.

This was a great way to experience the natural beauty of Arizona. Our driver, Eric, picked us up from our hotel at 6:45 AM promptly and then picked up other guests, who were staying quite close to our hotel, and then made his way through the Sonoran desert on the way to Sedona and ultimately ending up at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. The driver was prompt, courteous and all throughout the trip, offered us bottled water and provided knowledgeable commentary , being our tour guide. He made frequent stops, allowing us to remain comfortable and also stopped at the historic Cameron Trading Post, in the heart of Navajo reservation country. On the way back, we even travelled along Historic Route 66 for a short time , through Flagstaff. We arrived back at our hotel at the promised time.

What a wonderful introduction to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Our guide Eric was knowledgeable and friendly, introducing our group to the history, flora and fauna of Arizona. It is a long day with most of the time allotted to travelling through the desert and chapparal country. The Sedona stop is just for brief picture taking.

I got to Phoenix late in the day, and looked online for tours to do the next day. I rang about 4 or 5 other companies, but being a Tuesday and the weather being really hot (hotter than usual apparenlty) they didn't have the numbers to go out on the tours... eventually i found this one... It was almost 10pm, but it said they were there till 11pm, so i gave them a try, and spoke with Carol, who was lovely. Even though they had the next day's pick ups all organised, she was able to accommodate me.

I did the 'Apache Trail and Dolly Steamboat' tour, with Kim as our leader. She was great, knew a lot about the area, and chatted to all of us like we'd known her for ever. (There was only 5 of us, so plenty of room in the van).

We stopped at the replica Goldfields Ghost Town, and then headed out to Canyon Lake for a cruise on the 'Dolly' which was very pleasant - lots of amazing scenery. Then we had lunch at the restaurant/cafe by the lake.

He was very knowledgeable of all the different plants, wildlife, and landscape. At one point when we were leaving the last stop at the Grand Canyon my grandaughter spotted some wild Elk, Eric graciously turned around and stopped so we could add to our already enormous file of awesome Photos. Eric made certain we had time to get our photos at each stop. Eric helped my wife in and out of the van each time we stopped. He offered us water on many occasions. And I might mention the van was roomy and had windows that were great to see out of. The van was clean and comfortable for the all day excursion. Great trip and well worth the money. I would and will recommend this tour company to anyone seeking a professionally guided tour of the Grand Canyon. Nice having a tour guide so well educated of the entire route of the tour and keeping it interesting. Thanks Eric and Across Arizona Tours for doing such a professional job.

I generally don't like tours where someone else is in charge, but this tour was exceptional. They picked us up at 7am in a large van that had only 7 others in it, lots of room, and we were dropped off at 8:30 at night. A very long day! We drove to Sedona and spent "too" little time there (only negative). I only wish we had more time to spend there, but Sedona is close enough to Scottsdale to make a second trip. We then headed off to the Navajo Reservation for some lunch and of course shopping (watch out for the Indian souvenirs that are made in China). Back into the van and a drive to the South ridge of the Grand Canyon. It is a wonder! There's no way to describe it, everything you've ever heard about it is true. It's got to be seen. OK, so that was the sights, now for the drive. The entire time we were driving our driver/tour guide, Kimberly, was giving us a description of everything we were seeing. She's a native Phoenixian (?is that a word???) as were her parents and many family members. We heard about how and when the roads were built, all the different types of Cactus (or Cacti), the natives and wildlife. At first I thought Kimberly wouldn't shut up but after a short time you started to enjoy her narations. It was a great tour, Kimberly great guide... ask for her if you go with Across Arizona Tours...

My wife and I spent the day on the tour to Sedona and the Grand Canyon with Across Arizona Tours. We had considered renting a car and making the trip ourselves, but are very happy we didn't! Our driver/guide, Kim, picked us up in Old Town Scottsdale. With a group of 9 in a very comfortable van, we made our way to Sedona via a very scenic road. It was a winding road, which concerned my wife as she can get motion sickness, but Kim was very empathetic and maneuvered the van very carefully. My wife, with a dose of motion sickness tablets was fine and thoroughly enjoyed the view. Sedona was everything we'd heard it would be and we spent just the right amount of time soaking it in. We continued to Flagstaff and stopped for lunch at a historic trading post in Cameron. The food, much of it influenced by the Navajo Nation, was fantastic. From there we continued to the Grand Canyon, making a few stops to take in the majestic views. Our guide, Kim, was very knowledgeable and made sure our stops were long enough to enjoy and take pictures, but short enough so we could get in as many different views as possible. She was always professional and a pleasure to be around! It was obvious she loves what she does and wants her guests' experiences to be the best. It was a long day, but by far the safest and best way to take in the beauty of Sedona and the Grand Canyon.

The tour guide, Don, was very knowledgeable and I learned about the formation of the Grand Canyon, the history of Arizona and several other fun facts. (Do you know how Sedona got its name or why the Sedona rock is red?) The scenery was breath-taking and the van was comfortable.

I visited Phoenix, Arizona for the first time from January 1 to 11. Although the sun and warmth was reason enough to say I will definitely return, I must comment on Across Arizona Tours. In particular, I would like to mention our tour guide, Kim. We took a one day tour to Sedona and The Grand Canyon. Our tour guide, managed to show us a vast amount of the land and the aforementioned sites in what could easily have taken two days of travel. The tour did not feel rushed and because of her informative narrative, I was thoroughly educated on many of the unique characteristics of what I now consider an amazing state. I am a teacher and know all too well about the average attention span of a learner and I admit I am easily bored. But there was something about the perky personality of the guide, the information given, the brief musical interludes, and of course the topic, that was just fascinating. What a wonderful experience and many kudos to Across Arizona tours for being such wonderful ambassadors for Arizona. If you are smart you will book with this company and if you are lucky, you will get Kim as your guide.

Dear Leonardo,

My friends from Buffalo said the trip to Sedona last Monday with you as our guide was one of the most memorable experiences of their lives.

You were so organized, so knowledgeable, so pleasant, and so attentive. They couldn't wait to tell their friends when they returned home.

I have been to Sedona many times, but I have never enjoyed it as I did on your tour. Please feel free to use my remarks whenever you wish.

My friends gave me big hugs and kisses for suggesting the tour--even some of the men! Thanks again for providing such an enriching experience. My best regards to Carole.

Especially with Scott who was very informative and engaging about the sights we saw that we gained a lot of knowledge on the trip.
Scott was the greatest!

My family went on one of your tours to the Grand Canyon. Wed April 10. 3 adults and 1- 4 yr old child. We wanted you to know that this tour was one of the biggest highlights of our trip out west. It was our first time to see Arizona. Robin was our driver and tour guide. He did an excellent job in teaching us all about your grand state. I am so glad to have found this website, so I could book this trip. Thank you and Robin very much.

I want to thank you for putting together a very successful Sedona trip and jeep ride for our National Pump people. They all  had a great time. Everything was so organized, our guide was great and the box lunches worked out excellent. I must say that our out of town guests were very impressed and loved the jeep ride.

If we reach our numbers for 2012, I will be calling you again to put something together. It was great!

Thanks to Leonardo and Across Arizona Tours for a wonderful tour of the Apache Trail and the lake cruise, a day trip organized for 30 as a spouse tour.

Everyone had a great time. Thanks also for making the extra stop at the Gold Mine. They really enjoyed that, too.

Thanks again for the great tour of the Grand Canyon on my birthday. Of course, the Grand Canyon is magnificent. But that was to be expected.

The real joy in the day came from your tour. You are a GREAT storyteller—weaving all that knowledge of history, geology, and climatology into an exciting narrative of the area. I came away feeling much smarter.

And there is more—the most important part of the day was the respect and kindness and inclusivity that came through in how you talked about all of the cultures and people who are part of the narrative of this area. That was really special!

I appreciate the passion you have for Arizona. I hope that you become wildly successful, in this or whatever you do.

Hi Carole

Now that the dust has settled I just wanted to write in and tell you how great our experience was for the Grand Canyon tour. Our tour guide/driver/teacher/totally cool person was Kim. We are Kim Fans! We felt safe with her driving and she gave the perfect balance of fun facts, jokes, and even silence during the trip.

Thank you so much

Hi, Carol,

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this weekend's tour of the Najavo Reservation and the Grand Canyon. Our guide, Kim, was absolutely great: knowledgeable, entertaining, very friendly. She delivered the perfect balance of information, entertaining trivia, and humor, and was at no point "too much". The amount of time we were given to spend on our own at the reservation and at the Canyon was also just right - not too short and not too long. I followed her suggestion for lunch at the reservation and was not disappointed! Really, I have nothing negative to say about the tour and am in fact already thinking about returning to Phoenix and going on some other tours, like the Sedona / Jerome and Sedona / Wine Country tour.

Thanks for a great experience,

“Fantastic tour of Grand Canyon and Sedona”

Reviewed June 13, 2011
My friend and I traveled from NJ to Scottsdale for vacation. "Across Arizona Day Tours" did a presentation at our hotel. We booked a trip to Sedona and were advised to wait one day and then travel to the Grand Canyon. And they were right on.

The two days spent with our tour guide, Robin, were full of wonderful stops. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out informational facts all day, non-stop!! He was absolutely the best, very professional and his choices for lunch couldn't have been better. He knew exactly where to stop at the Grand Canyon and gave us plenty of time to tour and shop. The additional stops on the Sedona tour were an added plus, we didn't expect.

I would recommend this tour, for the price and all we learned, about cactus and the area I will cherish forever. Thank you for making our visit to Arizona both interesting and pleasurable. We have a beautiful country, thank you for sharing Arizona with us, Robin!

We wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the Sedona Tour and the Grand Canyon Tour with your company. Leo met with us to explain things and then stayed behind to talk more about the plants and etc... then we got on the van and Robin was our tour guide - does the man ever take a breath - WOW he is a walking book of knowledge on these areas. We are so glad we took these tours with your company as we learned so much more and would have missed so much information if we had done this tour on our own. Again we thank both Leo and Robin for a very enjoyable time and would recommend this tour company to anyone!!!!!!!!

Hi Carol, just a quick message to tell you how wonderful my tour was to the Grand Canyon on Thursday, May 27th from the Scottsdale, Doubletree Paradise Valley Hotel. Our Tour Guide, Don, was so informative, personable and a pure gem for your organization. His knowledge about the area astounded me. He has so many outstanding qualities which made my trip a cherished memory.

Please relay my compliments to him as well as the other members of your organization. I would never hesitate to reserve another tour with your organization and would recommend your services to anyone visiting the area. Hopefully, I will be able to return to your state in the not too distant future.

I just wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful experience touring both Sedona and the Grand Canyon this past week with Across Arizona Tours. Our tour guide both days was Kim, who was terrific and very knowledgeable about AZ! It was just amazing to view the Grand Canyon in person and Sedona was very pretty as well.

Thank you and please tell Kim that Laura & Fanny from NY had a terrific time!

Hello Leonardo,

Thank you for your e-mail after I returned from my visit to Scottsdale. I meant to reply but I realize now that due to an oversight, I did not. Sorry about that. But I wanted to give you feedback and tell you how much I enjoyed both my Across Arizona Tours. First, the overview tour with you, which was so informative, and also so helpful to include a docent-led tour of the Heard Museum. And I very much enjoyed meeting you, and having the luxury of a personal tour!

And the Apache Trail Tour was memorable, with beautiful scenery, the steamboat ride, and very informative narration throughout.

Thank you so much for arranging these tours for me. I will definitely recommend Across Arizona when I write my article about Scottsdale. It will be sometime this winter--it depends when my editor wants it. I will certainly let you know whenever it's in print.

Best regards,

This was recommended to us by our timeshare folks (Diamond Resorts). I HIGHLY recommend this company if you are interested in going to the Grand Canyon. Our concierge said "If you are lucky, you will get this one guy... super knowledgeable"

We got Leonardo... "that one guy"

Spoiled were we because we got a private tour (the other family had canceled) on Thursday.. it was a perfect way to end our trip before coming home.

He picked us up at our resort on time at 7:30 AM and we drove first to Flagstaff. During our drive he talked about each part we passed, info bites, history is a great way to learn more about Arizona. He talked about both present and past....and once he found out I was a teacher he started going more in depth and asking me questions about his favorite stuff in history. It was a personal tour which Leonardo totally adapted to his audience (us). After a short potty break in Flagstaff we headed up to the "GC." Again along the way tons of facts on people, places, plants, things, science.... Leonardo is a wealth of knowledge. He took us to several spots along the Grand Canyon where we stopped first for an hour and a half for lunch/ gift shops/ checking out the killer views.... then we went to several other spots... and afterward we headed to a trading post= thirty minutes for souvenirs and looking at Native American items for purchase.... then since we were ahead of schedule and the only ones on the tour he asked if we wanted to check out Sedona. OMG you serious!! So we ended up taking a bathroom break/ quick tour of Sedona. We did not get a chance to see stores and shops but we did get to see the mountains (which during the sunset is phenomenal). We did all of this AND he had us back by 7:10 PM.. well ahead of schedule. He asked if we wanted to eat there for dinner.... Leonardo totally went out of his way for us which was awesome.

Dear Across Arizona Tours,

I was a passenger and guest on one of your tours a while back last month. When I left, 1 dropped or left my camera on the van. Now, the camera was just a disposable, but some pictures of my family were on the ro11 too. I talked to Barb, the concierge at Villa Mirage, and she handled the rest.

The camera was left on the van. Barb traced that down, and not only that, but had the tour company send me the camera.It arrived last week, and I am one happy traveler.

I want to thank you for your courtesy to me. Your service was above and beyond the call of duty. Joe was our guide,and he did a wonderful job of informing us. Congratulations to you. I give you a first class rating

Dear Carole and Leonardo,

I have worked with many tour companies over the years, and I must say you guys are the best!!! You both were very responsive during the planning process - always answering our questions promptly and providing all information requested. You were always very patient with us and our many questions and changes.

We have received nothing but compliments from the attendees who participated in the tours, both pre-convention and post-convention tours. Those who had signed up for tours that had low participation were thrilled that you made arrangements for their tours to happen. As you promised, all tours were made possible because of your van and coach capabilities.

Those on the post convention tour had a wonderful time. I am still getting emails, cards and photos telling me what a wonderful time they had and how knowledgeable the tour guides were. They were impressed with how much history was shared with them. They said they not only feel like they have visited Arizona, but that they know something about the state.

I truly appreciated you being on site during the registration hours to answer questions and hand out tickets. This is the first time I can remember no one complaining because they couldn't find the tour guide - you were always there. That really meant a lot to our attendees and to the staff.

Our members are already asking when they can return to Phoenix for a convention - one thing is for sure, when we return. Across Arizona Tours will be our tour company.

Thank you again for your attention to every detail, to seeing to the control of our attendees and to providing a wonderful experience for our members visit to Phoenix.
