The Basics

A scenic drive through beautiful Oak Creek Canyon is well worth the effort whether or not you actually need to travel north from Sedona. Grand Canyon day trips from Sedona pass through the gorge, as do small-group tours of the Sedona area (along with visits to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and Airport Mesa) and multi-day itineraries through Arizona.

Tyson made the tour amazing! The overall experience was great (Except I would suggest bringing your lunch. The food at the Grand Canyon was not that great) Other than that I would recommend this experience to anyone.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Tyson was out your guide. He picked us up promptly at 7:20 am. He was very knowledgeable about the history of his state and very accommodating to all passengers. We stopped for pics in Sedona, viewed the Grand Canyon, had a quick lunch and then viewed other parts of the Canyon independently. There were so many magnificent views from each point. The ride is worth the experience.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Seeing the Grand Canyon, of course! A lifelong dream of mine, and it was the experience of a lifetime. But this said, everything else was wonderful. Great lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant right before entering the Grand Canyon National Park. A wonderful drive through Oak Creek Canyon, and a stop in Sedona. All quite well-paced. And Eric, our driver and guide, was wonderful! Super nice, friendly and respectful.

I thought we would see more of Sedona and shop there. GC was great to see and organized group that weren't late to depart Colder than I expected. I packed wrong coming here in general for winter. Nice tour.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Oak Creek Canyon is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts, adventure travelers, and photographers.

  • Plan ahead: The drive is lovely but there aren’t many places to pull off and enjoy the scenery.

  • Be sure to bring along sun protection and plenty of drinking water, as it’s easy to get dehydrated in the arid climate.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces if you plan to get out of the car and explore.

When to Get There

Oak Creek Canyon is stunning year-round, so deciding when to visit is largely a matter of preference. Hikers come to enjoy the desert wildflowers from March to May, while summer brings temperatures warm enough for swimming at Slide Rock State Park or Grasshopper Point. The canyon is particularly impressive in autumn when the oaks amid the evergreen forest display their fall foliage.
