    What to Expect
    Begin your full-day tour to the Grand Canyon South Rim with pickup from your lodging in the metro Phoenix area. Board a comfortable vehicle with your driver and your group of five people or fewer and head toward the Grand Canyon.

    Stop to visit key attractions on the long drive, like historic Route 66, the Cameron Trading Post, or Painted Desert. Your small-group tour can be curated to best fit your interests.

    Then, take a tour of the Grand Canyon; your guide takes you to all of the best viewpoints and overlooks the park has to offer. Main attractions in the park include Grand Canyon Village, Yavapai Point, Moran Point, and Desert View Watchtower.

    Return to Phoenix at the end of the tour.

    Please note: A minimum of two and a maximum of five people is required per booking.

    I was picked up at my hotel in Scottsdale and returned there. They also pick up in Phoenix and probably anywhere nearby. The entrance fee was included.
