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.

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.

Honestly, out of all our vacation trips… we’ve never encountered something so breathtaking as the Grand Canyon. Our guide Frank was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of what Arizona has to offer. Not to mention a great personality as well. While it was a very long day, this tour was worth every penny.

If you only have one day to see the Grand Canyon, take this tour! My tour guide Tyson was so knowledgeable, I learned fascinating facts and stories I never would have known otherwise. The time at the Grand Canyon was perfect! Seeing Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona on the way back was also amazing. We saw SO MUCH in just one day. Highly recommend. I am so happy I did this 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.

How to Get There

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.
