Private Tour vs Group Tour - A Cost Comparison


While you'll receive only the best experience, it doesn't necessarily cost you a whole lot more than a very ordinary Group Tour.


​We're the EXPERTS at showing your family/private group the amazing Grand Canyon in a super relaxed, fun, entertaining way.  All in One Day!

TOUR OVERVIEW - Unlike other tour companies, we pick you up where you're staying.


Heading North into Arizona's high country, you'll watch as the desert is left behind.  In less than an hour, the expansive grasslands begin to dominate the landscape.


SEDONA - If you choose to see Sedona on the way to the Grand Canyon (no additional cost) we suggest a stop at the Chapel of the Holy Cross.  The Chapel was built in the 1950's and is built right into the red rock.  "Bell Rock" and "Cathedral Rock" formations can easily be seen from the Chapel, making for incredible photo opportunities.


We'll exit Sedona on historic Highway 89A up through the Oak Creek Canyon.  This part of the tour is slow going, with 15 MPH switchbacks, as we climb up onto the Mogollon Rim.  At over 7,000 feet, the views from the top are AMAZING..!

SEDONA BYPASS - Want to bypass Sedona and go straight to the Grand Canyon?  Of course, you're 100% in charge.​  By heading straight to the Grand Canyon you'll save 1.5hrs in travel time.  With all that extra time, start your adventure with an easy walk along the rim of the Grand Canyon.  The "Rim Trail" is paved and slightly downhill; ending at the historic El Tovar hotel.  We make it easy, and the view from the path is breathtaking!


GRAND CANYON - You'll arrive around 12PM (10:30AM if you bypass Sedona).  Just in time for lunch at the El Tovar Historic Hotel.  Lunch is first come, first serve (not included).

After lunch we suggest you spend a few minutes exploring the nearby lookouts, Museum's (Yavapai, Kolb Studio), and historic buildings.  There's a lot to see within walking distance of the hotel.

REMOTE OVERLOOKS - The further away from the Grand Canyon Village we go, the thinner the crowds.  We'll get you into the smaller, more remote overlooks, where the Canyon truly comes to life.  At every stop the Colorado River becomes more visible.  Only from these remote overlooks can you see the Canyon in all its glory.
