What you'll do

You will see some of the most beautiful places in the world all in one day! We will meet at Starbucks at 550 E Willetta St, Phoenix, and head to the gorgeous red rocks of Sedona. Not only is Sedona absolutely stunning, it is thought to have healing powers from the magnetic vortices located there. We will visit the site of an actual vortex, Chapel of the Holy Cross overlooking Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock. Then we'll grab a bite to eat before we head to Flagstaff traveling on one of the most scenic highways in U.S , 89A. We will stop at Oak Creek Canyon Vista, a gorgeous scenic viewpoint where there is a Native American Crafts Market run by local Native Americans, and then we will head out to view one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon! We will arrive at the Grand Canyon in the afternoon to take in this magnificent & breathtaking sight, & hike into the Canyon if you wish! Then you will enjoy the best sunset in the world, an Arizona sunset, on our drive back to Phoenix!

I love this experience! I am your new local friend excited to share with you all the hidden gems, best local places to eat, best scenic roads & views in Arizona!

This is the *original* Airbnb Grand Canyon/Sedona Experience. I was the 1st! Now over 200 trips & over 1000 guests! My timing is perfect, not rushed. My company, Elegant Travel, is legally permitted to operate in the Grand Canyon.

I have traveled across Europe, Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Mexico, Roatan, and Grand Cayman. I have been a math professor at Arizona State University since 2002. I've explored and hiked every corner of this gorgeous state. I am a licensed realtor in Arizona and I am very familiar with all of the different cities and small towns that Arizona has to offer. I am an avid hiker and I love to discover "off the beaten path" sights and experiences. I hiked some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world this past summer in Australia and the Hawaiian Islands. I am a licensed scuba diver and I am working on finishing my pilot's license. I love sharing my joy of traveling and discovering hidden gems in Arizona with others!

Where you'll be

We will visit Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona. The Chapel of the Holy Cross is a church built right into the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. On the sides and in the front, Sedona sprawls out majestically, a sweeping landscape of red rocks, trees, and nestled houses. Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte are visible to the south, and Cathedral Rock to the west. We will grab a bite to eat, and then we will head to the Grand Canyon!

Naala is a wonderful person. She's very knowledgeable and provides excellent information throughout the trip, not just during planned stops. The van is very comfortable and there was plenty of snacks and water provided. I will definitely recommend this to friends and family.

I was traveling solo and this was the perfect way to see both the grand canyon and sedona in one day! Naala is very friendly and it was a beautiful day of seeing beautiful things. Naala obviously has things figured out so well - we never hit crowded areas, lunch was delicious, and the van we took was super comfortable with USB outlets :) I highly recommend this tour

This experience was everything all the other amazing reviews say - AMAZING. In every way. If you only have a day to explore this is the experience. There much too much to say about how amazing it was but I’ll try to be brief. First communication was very clear, I knew exactly what to expect. The van was new, clean and super spacious, we had charging ports, tons of water and snacks! The bathroom breaks were well timed which was great because I had kids with me. From the second we started she began to share info that we never would have known if we went on our own. It was so nice to look out the window and learn instead of having to drive. We also go to the best access points at the perfect times, missing crowds and wait times. The views, the experience it was just all so perfect. My son left his iPad in the van and she brought it to our Airbnb even though she had to have been tired! 10/10 can’t recommend this experience enough!!!! I would def do it again!

This was such an amazing tour! I was worried because I get bored so easily, but Naala made it so it felt like I was with long time friends. There was always some exciting information or sights coming right up. It was extremely comfortable and worth the price :)
