Come explore the Grand Canyon by land and air with DETOURS Colors and Canyons day tour. A tour unlike any other, you begin by leaving the big city in one of our custom vans (equipped with captains chair seating for individual comfort!) and travelling through the Sonoran Desert— one of the largest and hottest deserts in North America—until you reach your first stop in the beautiful Red Rock Country of Sedona. Enjoy 30 minutes to browse through gift shops, boutiques and art galleries in uptown Sedona while taking in the view of the towering red rocks and cliffs that surround you. Enjoy a delicious lunch provided by one of the local delis to take along as a picnic to the Grand Canyon. Journey through Oak Creek Canyon, with 2000ft of vertical red walled canyon, through the ponderosa forests of Flagstaff that are home to a variety of wildlife from elk to black bear, all while learning interesting facts from your tour guide. Your arrival in the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is where your tour really takes flight!
Hop into a Maverick helicopter and take off from the Grand Canyon Airport for a 45 minute ride over the southern, eastern and northern rims of the canyon. Take in breathtaking views that only 5% of visitors to the Grand Canyon actually get to see! From the wide expanses of ponderosa forest to the marble-colored canyon walls and turquoise running waters, you’ll soon learn why the Grand Canyon is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. With an excellent and knowledgeable staff of pilots and wrap around windows that allow for optimum viewing, there is really no better way to see the canyon than by helicopter with Maverick.
The rest of the time spent in the Grand Canyon will give guests the chance to have lunch, relax, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. After the three hour guided tour through the canyon, the final stop before heading back is an authentic Navajo Trading post. Located in Cameron, the trading post is situated in the Navajo Nation, the largest reservation in the United States covering over 27,000 square miles. Here you can shop around for unique and authentic Navajo treasures including hand woven rugs, pottery, and art. Pick up any gifts, snacks, or frozen treats and hop on the van to begin your journey back into the big city with memories to last a lifetime.
