Az. Detours....keep an eye of the weather. Long day, but worth it if that is your only option.

Don't bother with a tour company. Drive yourself. Your trip will be more flexible and you will have more time at the GC. It is an easy drive.

In early November, you really shouldn't have to worry much about the weather. December through February, into March are the worst months for snowstorms in northern AZ. There is an off chance there could be some snow, but not too likely early in the month.

Here is some information on average temperatures and precipitation in Flagstaff, which would be about the same as at the GC:

If the weather is too bad for you to drive, it will be too bad for a tour coach as well. Drive yourself.

Early November shouldn't be a problem.
