Most tours just pass through Sedona. I will start by taking you to Sedona's Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock where you will enjoy a relaxing hike taking you through a Prickly Pear Cactus patch which is only known to locals. Next I'll take you to the famous Chapel of the Holy Cross which boasts spectacular views, amazing architecture and works of art. We'll also go to Airport Mesa Vortex which boasts spectacular views that are breathtaking. Many people come to this place to mediate and draw in the beauty that is Sedona. Then we'll break for lunch at the restaurant with the best view in Sedona, Canyon Breeze which includes a little time to do some souvenir shopping. Then we will drive straight to the Grand Canyon and see the monument sign, Mather, Lipon & Grandview Points. Our final stop will be Desert View Watchtower which is my favorite spot to view the Colorado River which has a great souvenir shop.
Cesar & Nico
I have lived in Arizona for over 30 years. This has afforded me the opportunity to explore our rich landscape which is full of history. I have worked in the hospitality industry for 15 of those years and was professionally trained as a tour guide. I was also an Airbnb Super-host for 3 years. I am an avid outdoors-man and love hiking and exploring nature. Using that experience I have toured over 200 of my previous guests to see the majesty that is Arizona. If you book with me, I will make your vacation one to remember by giving you information about the plants, animals, geology and history of Arizona and the Grand Canyon. I will also take you to off the beaten path to see treasures you could never find on your own.
Everyone gets a snack bag to keep your energy up during our hikes. Please let me know if you have any allergies or dietary…
I provide bottled water to keep you hydrated on your hike and trip.
Entrance fee to the Grand Canyon is included.
I own a 15 Passenger Van that I will be using for this trip. It is a Ford Transit 350XLT. There are 2 amp USB charging ports…
We'll stop at Courthouse Butte & Bell Rock in Sedona & hike off of the beaten path through a cactus patch only known to locals. Expect a one hour hike and bring comfortable shoes. We will also visit Chapel of the Holy Cross, Canyon Breeze Restaurant & Airport Mesa Vortex which is a short hike. Williams is a short stop before The Grand Canyon's Mather, Grandview, & Lipon Points. Our final stop is Desert View Watchtower before heading home.
Comfortable walking/hiking shoes
All entrance fees are included. Gratuity/Tip is not included. It is customary to tip a tour guide up to 20% of your booking. If you want to tip more, I won't stop you. :-) LOL. I do promise that I will work extremely hard to make this a trip of a lifetime!
