Meet your guide at your hotel in Sedona for a scenic 2-hour drive through the red rock of Oak Creek Canyon and Colorado Plateau en route to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Along with a group of at most 14 people, listen to your guide tell tales of local landscape and culture along the way.
Upon arrival, head to the overlook at Grand Canyon Village and take in the iconic view of the gorge below. Break for lunch at Maswik Cafe, a casual dining spot with a selection of homestyle meals and griddle foods, and then drive around the rim on a route that overlooks classic views of the canyon: Yavapai Point, Lipan Point, and Desert View.
Those who select the helicopter upgrade will then take to the skies for a 30-minute flight, seeing the Grand Canyon from the air.
Return to Sonoma along the Little Colorado River, stopping to at the Cameron Trading Post to see work from Hopi, Zuni, and Navajo artists before watching the sunset over the high desert.
