Wink Tour bus or Drive from Phoenix to Grand Canyon

I'll be in Phoenix all next week and am trying to decide if we should drive ourselves or purchase a tour excursion to the Grand Canyon/Navaho Reservation. Any opinions? Any recommendations for a tour service?

depends a little on preferences~ personally love trains so I drove to Williams and rode train to canyon~ includes small skit before departure and entertainment on train. Lets you off close to a great view of canyon and near an indian store that did free {for tips} indian dances outside right next to canyon edge. Also got within feet of some mountain sheep.

Thought it was great! Have no idea what tour would include.

I agree with Deckdoc, Carolinagirl.

The Train Grand Canyon Railway - The Official Site is the best way to go.

It leaves Williams about 8 O'clock in the morning (many packages include an overnight stay at the Depot Hotel), allowing a few hours to enjoy The Canyon, eat lunch and souvenir shop then returns about 5'ish. I've done it about a dozen times and still believe it is worth every penny.

Good Luck.
