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.

Awesome tour!
This was an amazing experience! My husband and I loved the Grand Canyon tour. Our guide was Taylor. He was the best! Extremely knowledgeable and told lots of great stories! We would have liked to spend more time in Sedona and experience more of the red rocks. We didn't get to that part of the tour til late. Overall, it was amazing! Would go back for sure!

The Experience of a Lifetime!

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.

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
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.

Our driver Tyson was amazing. I didn’t expect the amount of information he gave us from the beginning to the end of the trip. Such a great experience, I would do it again, hands down!

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Well the day started off with Tyson picking us all up and driving us to the Grand Canyon and a few other spots that we will never forget! I traveled solo and I still had a great time with people on the van and Tyson is very knowledgeable and keeps you entertained most of the ride! Several bathroom breaks and time to grab snacks as well so no worries! Go check out those views!!!!

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
It was worth the drive to see the majestic views of the Grand Canyon! The tour through Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon were also amazing! Our guide Taylor shared tons of stories with the group about the history, the native plant life/cacti varieties, pointed out wildlife and the different mountains we were seeing. It was a rather long day in the van, but Taylor did a great job at making sure everyone had a great experience and stopped whenever someone needed.

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

Arizona State Route 89A runs through Oak Creek Canyon from Sedona to just outside Flagstaff. Driving allows for the chance to stop at your leisure to take in the natural beauty, while a guided day tour around Sedona or to the Grand Canyon eliminates the hassle of having to rent a car.

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.
