Day 1: Following hotel pickup, visit Arizona Route 66 Museum to explore the origin and culture of the road. The museum is located in the historic Kingman Powerhouse and depicts the historical evolution of travel along the 35th parallel that became Route 66.

Nestled on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Meteor Crater’s visitor center is one of the most popular attractions in Northern Arizona. Over 50,000 years ago, space and earth came together when a huge iron-nickel meteorite, approximately 150 feet wide and weighing several hundred thousand tons, impacted an area outside of Flagstaff, Arizona, with a force 150 times greater than an atomic bomb.

The canyon measures 270 miles long and stretches across northern Arizona. There is truly nothing quite like it, which is why people of all ages from around the world come to witness this breathtaking Southwest landmark.

Great experience. Kim was guide during the trip. She was thoughtful, she was taking care of everyone's need. She shared with us lots of great stories. And she took many excellent photos I wish we could spend more time in Sedona. It's such a pretty and cute place. Worth seeing ❤ Bus was comfortable especially that it was not full (10/13). This experience is perfect for couples but also solo-travelers (like me)

The driver was awesome! The trip was awesome and very easy to set up meeting point. The driver actually met us after the trip was over because I left my package on the van. The company was so helpful to aid me in getting back my package!!! This company is the best ever!!!!!! I will use this service again the next time I travel!!!! Thank you!!

We had an amazing time on the tour! Noel was very knowledgeable and took us to all the beautiful scenic locations in Sedona and the Grand Canyon. We really appreciated how accommodating he was for our mobility constraints. Definitely cannot recommend enough!

What a lovely trip . The tour guide Bob was wonderful and knowledgeable. I enjoyed sitting in a van better than a bus. Very personalized tour with lots of history . Totally recommend this tour .
