My husband and I booked this tour over the internet during our vacation to Phoenix. Booking was easy and the trip was wonderful. Steve (owner and guide) called before the scheduled time, arrived on time and showed us a wonderful time exploring and explaining the wonder of the Grand Canyon! The view was breath-taking. Steve knows a lot of history about the greater Phoenix area including the Canyon and the surrounding Indian reservations. He provided water and soft drinks. We made 3 stops along the south rim of the Grand Canyon. The tour was unhurried with time for a great lunch and a snack on the way home. It is long...about 14 hours but filled full of information. It was like spending the day with an old friend seeing something we will marvel over for the rest of our lives! Next time we go back to Phoenix we will see Tombstone with Steve!

My husband and I took a trip to Arizona for a long weekend. Since we wanted to get the most out of our time, we booked a day trip with Arizona Scenic Day Tours. Working with Steve to coordinate our adventure was so easy! He gave us many options that fit our activity level and interests. On the day of the tour, Steve was very professional, personable, and very knowledgable about the area. He did all the driving, so that gave us the opportunity to truly sight see. We also hiked in the morning (led by the guide), which was our favorite part of the day. Steve knew so much about the area, plant and animal life and always answered my questions. Great local business. I would definitely recommend this business.

We booked Arizona Scenic Tours for a one day Sedona/Grand Canyon tour. Steve picked us up at our hotel in his van. There was one other lady that also took the trip with us. That day a snow strorm was predicted for the high elevations and Steve suggested that we switch our order and go directly to the canyon in hopes of getting there before the snow. We agreed. Made it to the canyon with about 1/2 hour to spare. When we left, the roads were bad and Steve checked the highway before we got much further to find a 4 car accident on the road to Sedona. We then made the decision to forget Sedona and head to Prescott instead. Good call on Steve's part. He is very knowledgeable about all things Arizona, nice and flexible also. We also booked him for a day tour down to Tuscon the next day. Both days were great and I would highly recommend Arizona Scenic Tours to anyone heading to the Phoenix area.

This was the first reason we chose to take our tours with Steve and it just kept getting better! His van was comfortable, his prices were comparable, the small group made the tours more personable and Steve is a great guy! He knows the history of Arizona and aims to please without making you feel rushed. We did the Grand Canyon with Sedona and Tombstone Tours, met some great people and were very satisfied. We would definitely recommend going with Steve Gerhart, Owner of Arizona Scenic Tours, LLC

We wanted to make a quick trip to the Grand Canyon from Phoenix and after some searching around on the internet we chose Steve and Arizona Scenic tours based on the great reviews. we were also impressed by the prompt and enthusiastic responses giving us most of the information without having to ask for it .
He was able to accomodate a last minute addition to our party, the pickup up was at the time promised and the small group (3 of us and 2 others) meant that we didn't have to make numerous pit stops and it was more personal. Unfortunately bad weather was predicted and Steve suggested we bypass the detours planned and we went straight to the Canyon and were able to enjoy a wonderful (albeit windy) 4+ hours there before the weather rolled in. All the way there and back he told us a lot about what we were seeing on the way, plant life, animals history, trivia and so on - so it wasn't like a hopping onto a bus and going there. The 3 hour travel time didn't even seem like much.
It was totally hassle free and enjoyable trip and I wouldn't hesitate book tours with him should I ever visit that part of the world again.
