If you are interested in seeing the Grand Canyon and are staying in the Sedona area, there are many options to suit your needs.I would recommend the Colorado River Whitewater Tour from Sedona for a wild water adventure led by an experienced Hualapai Indian Guide.You will spend 5 hours on the water with Class II-IV white water rapids, navigating through the largest and most impressive canyon in the world.You will stop to have a light lunch on the banks of the Colorado River and hike through a secret side canyon to the Travertine Falls.At the end of the 14 hour trip, you will rise up 14,000 feet from floor to rim in a helicopter to view the canyon from a different vantage point and take the drive back to your hotel on the river van while viewing a specially prepared video.
The Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour with Gourmet Lunch from Sedona is another fabulous option, and it gives you a choice between a 30 or 45 minute helicopter flight along with a full-day luxury coach tour from Sedona to the Grand Canyon.The tour begins with a scenic ride from Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon, the Ponderosa Pines of Flagstaff, the San Francisco Peaks and the gorgeous Aspen Groves before stopping at Tusayan to watch an IMAX movie about the Grand Canyon.Entrance fees to Grand Canyon National Park are included in the price of tickets and you will also get a gourmet lunch at the historic El Tovar Lodge on the South Rim (Yavapai or Maswik Lodge for the regular lunch option)followed by a walk along the South Rim for a spectacular view and a visit to the historic Watchtower Observatory.The scenes you will see are indescribable, as if an artist hand painted them.You will not want to forget your camera to take still pictures or video, as you will likely not have a similar experience again.
Other tours to consider are the Grand Canyon Experience Tour with El Tovar Lodge Lunch from Sedona – which is a real treat with over 7 stops, lunch, and an IMAX movie – and the Grand Canyon Freedom Tour from Sedona.This tour provides a great deal of free time for those who are looking to set out and explore on their own for a while at the Grand Canyon.Along the way you will see Oak Creek Canyon, the Painted Desert, the Little Colorado River Gorge, and more. At the Grand Canyon National Park, you will have time to visit the gift shop, look around the historic buildings, or take a walk down part of the South Rim trail.
No matter which tour you choose, you can be sure that you will have a fun and educational time and will have lots of pictures to share with family and friends.Book online for a $5 discount per adult ticket at www.SedonaTours.us!
