Unforgettable experience
Aida_A, Mar 2023
Absolutely amazing trip, worth it definitely. Our guide Chris was very nice and told us a lot of information about Arizona
Great tour guide
Amanda_B, Mar 2023
Our guide Kim was EXCELLENT!! She mad the trip so interesting. She made sure we were comfortable and even with so not so good weather she made sure we saw everything.
100% recommended!
Carmen_C, Mar 2023
I was travelling solo and had a really great time in this tour! The guide, Tyson, was great. He knew everything about Arizona and the spots we visited. The group was also really nice and I loved to share the day with all of them. I was really surprised by the places we visited and the views during the way, from cactus and desert, to the Canyon, Sedona, Oak Creek, and all the mountains, forests and even snow. All in a few hours and miles distance. I learnt a lot of things I had no idea about. It is really really worth it! And I'd repeat for sure.
Relaxing travel, incredible views!
Kelly_K, Mar 2023
A lovely day spent with a kind an knowledgeable guide, Eric. I especially appreciated the leisurely pace of the day, with plenty of rest stops and photo opportunities. Eric’s knowledge of the area and its history were engaging, entertaining, and informative. Highly recommend this tour!
Excellent trip!
Donna_M, Mar 2023
Great trip, our driver Chris was excellent! Unfortunately parts of our trip were cancelled because of the snow. On the other hand, I was told it hasn’t snowed at the Grand Canyon in over 30 years.
Very informative
ladydivincent, Mar 2023
Our guide Chris was so knowledgeable and fun. Very informative. Really nice tour. Beautiful views. Would do this again. So much to take in.
Exceeded Expectations!!
Angelica_S, Mar 2023
I had an amazing trip with Eric of Across Arizona Tours, LLC! This trip far exceeded my expectations! Eric is a phenomenal tour guide. He made the journey enjoyable with very insightful information, frequent rest stops, and genuine care he showed to everyone on the trip. Not only was he very personable with a great sense of humor, he was very efficient with managing the schedule and ensured our safety at all times. I was blessed to be surrounded by a really nice group of fellow travelers from around the world, Australia, Brazil, Arizona, and Italy (just to name few), who also helped make the trip a delight. As an explorer, researcher and writer for The Great Knowers®, I am grateful for this opportunity. I look forward to my return and I especially want to experience the other Sedona trip with access to ancient ruins and to learn more about the Kachina. Many thanks!
worth the time and money

very interesting narrative - geology, plant and animal life, and history. a very long day from Phoenix but plenty of stops and a nice lunch at an Indian reservation trading post.
The Grand Canyon is the Star
Patricia_L, Feb 2023
Hon was very pleasant. The microphone systems was not good. We could not hear him in the back of the van. The van was very uncomfortable. We enjoyed the stops and of course the center piece of the trip - the Grand Canyon. It was nice not to have to. worry about a car, where to park etc.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for your feedback. We will address all your concerns. So glad you enjoyed the tour very much.
It is a great trip if you...
Rajeshwari_D, Feb 2023
It is a great trip if you have only one day to see the Grand Canyon. Our guide Eric was very nice and helpful. Good for solo travellers.
Our Guide (Han) was Awesome 😎
Julia_T, Feb 2023
Driver Han's 'surprise' viewing of the canyon. "You only see the Grand Canyon for the first time once in your life'. Had us all look down & facing away until we were at an amazing vista & had us all turn around & look at once. I held my sister's hand & actually yelped in awe!
A perfect day
The scenery and photo-ops, the very knowledgeable guide, and the fact that we didn’t have to drive! The weather was magnificent and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
Quick trip
Tracey_L, Feb 2023
Eric was a great tour guide. Very professional and polite. It was a very quick trip, but we didn’t need to drive or rent a car. It was a good trade-off.
Great Experience
Donna_S, Feb 2023
Of course the Grand Canyon is a magnificent sight and Sedona is just beautiful. In addition, our tour guide, Zane, was incredibly knowledgeable about the whole area as we drove from Scottsdale and back. I recommend this trip.
Wonderful tour! Don’t hesitate to book!
Bernie_P, Feb 2023
Wonderful trip! Frank our tour guide was so knowledgeable adding so much to our tour. He was friendly, funny and just all around great! Van was comfortable and Frank was a great driver even when we ran into alittle snow on the curvy roads. Would def book again
great trip
Paul_S, Feb 2023
tour guide - very informative pickup detail - was punctional - 5 minutes early didn't have to wait value for money - good value - nothing is cheap anymore ! seeing the grand canyon was great - pictures, movies does not do it justice Tour was well organized - frequent quick stops was appreciated not familiar with area so not sure what could have been better - lunch place was not great but it served the purpose If you go in January / February - dress warm - around 0 degrees Celsius Wear good foot gear - something that grips well in ice and snow - waterproof be careful when walking - there are areas with no bars with a 5,000 foot drop if you go over Try not to sit in the back of the van - the seats are made for 8 year olds !
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for the kind words and we always aim at making our tours better. Reviews like your help! I will let your guide know about the good work and due to the isolation the area, the lunch options are limited but hopefully more options will become available in the future.
Great day at the canyon
Violeta_H, Feb 2023
My second time doing this tour and it’s always nice to not have to drive yourself. This was my 3rd time to grand canyon and just love the canyon and sedona so much. Zane is extremely knowledgeable and he drives very safe and efficiently. Sorry i didn’t tip you as i didn’t have cash but hopefully this review will get you a raise. Thanks Zane.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for the kind words and yes we will make sure Zane gets everything that’s coming to him. I’m gonna buy him lunch! I will forward this to him and let him know how much you appreciate his service. Thank you for choosing Across Arizona Tours. :)
Zara was a great guide...
Mark_S, Feb 2023
Zara was a great guide and made the day really memorable. A fantastic trip to see the Grand Canyon and Sedona. A full day but worth it.
