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.

Eric was a great guide. Lots of history and information along the way. It was a long day but we knew that going in. Eric made the drive time better with explanation of all the different areas.

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.

I thought we would see more of Sedona and shop there. GC was great to see and organized group that weren't late to depart Colder than I expected. I packed wrong coming here in general for winter. Nice tour.

I loved the stops and breaks throughout the trip. Our guide, Tyson, was the best! I didn't know Arizona had hidden jewels and the change of landscapes throughout the road trip was amazing! I would definitely do it again in the future.

Amazing! Taylor was the best! He knows all there is to know about Arizona and “his canyon” 😊 Long day but completely worth it!

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.

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.
