What people are saying about Mesa

I had a fantastic experience with Across Arizona Tours. My guide Kim collected me on time fromy Scottsdale Hotel and drove us through the desert, Sedona, Flagstaff, and onto the Grand Canyon, all the while giving us a really thorough commentary on the region and natural environment. She really knew her stuff! It's a long day but the perfect day trip if you're in town and eager to see the Canyon and Sedona - both as mindblowing as you imagine them to be. You don't get too long at the canyon as it's so far from Phoenix/ Scottsdale but it's enough time to take in the increíble (literally) views and walk the rim. Kim was an excellent guide & driver - you should do this tour!

The many positive reviews of this tour are correct. It’s great! If you don’t have a lot of time, seeing both Sedona and the Grand Canyon in the same day is wonderful. I assume all the guides are very good. Certainly, ours, Tyson, was excellent and added a great deal to our enjoyment and knowledge of the tour! He had lots of great stories, background and trivia! Little things like frequent stops and complimentary water were appreciated. Also, Tyson’s continuing and precise explanation of what we’re doing, where we’re going, where we’re stopping and for how long made for a seamless journey. [Be ready, though.....it’s a long day...12 to 13 hours.]

Our guide, Zane, was very knowledgeable about history for each part of our trip. He maximized our time and made the day very memorable. Highly recommend the day trip to Sedona, Navajo Nation, and the Grand Canyon. If you are interested in trying local eats, recommend the Navajo Taco and the Prickly Pear Milkshake!

This was a great experience! My guide, Tyson, gave in depth commentary on the history and natural environment of the various areas as we drove from Scottsdale to the Grand Canyon. This made the entire ride interesting. It is a long day but definitely worth the trip!

Guided tour and tour guide were excellent. Kim was knowledgeable and took great care of us.
