Day Excursion

After departing the Phoenix metro area, our tour travels through the expansive Sonoran Desert filled with the native saguaro cactus. The scenery begins to change as we increase in elevation and views of the cactus fade into pine trees. As we continue further into Northern Arizona, we will travel the outskirts of the Route 66 town of Flagstaff and from the highway, see the San Francisco Peaks among the seemingly endless Ponderosa Pine forests, the largest contiguous forest of ponderosa pines in the world.
Once at the Grand Canyon, you’ll experience approximately three hours within the National Park marveling at the beauty that is the South Rim. Don’t forget to visit the historic El Tovar Lodge and Hopi House in Grand Canyon Village. While inside Grand Canyon National Park, you will have opportunities to walk the rim, shop and capture an unlimited number of photographs.
