Our Daily Schedule
What is your daily schedule?
We pick you up on your schedule 24/7. Our professional drivers are normally 5-10 minutes early at your home, or right on time at the airport. You get to pick the time we pick you up.
What is my pickup time at the airport?
We normally pick you up 30 minutes after your plane lands for domestic flights, or 45 minutes after for international flights.
What happens if my flight is delayed?
Pickup times automatically adjust to 30 minutes after you land if your flight is delayed for domestic flights, or 45 minutes after you land for international flights.
What happens if my flight arrives early?
You can always call or send us a text if you want us to pick you up early, and we will let your driver know that you are ready to be picked up. Otherwise, we will pick you up at the scheduled time on your reservation.
How soon should I make a reservation?
Although there is no set rule that prevents you from booking last minute, it's a good idea to make your reservation as soon as possible to make sure a driver is available and prevent any delays.
How long does it take to go to the Grand Canyon?
Trips to and from the Grand Canyon in normal traffic are about 3 hours and 30 minutes versus about 7 hours on the bus or a shuttle with a bunch of people. Rush hour will normally add 15-45 minutes (30 minutes on the average).
What time should I be picked up?
5 hours before is normally enough time. The airport recommends you to be there 2 hours early to get through security and to your plane. Boarding usually starts 30 minutes before your plane takes off. However, one hour and thirty minutes is normally enough time. So if the drive from Grand Canyon to Phoenix takes about 3 hours and 30 minutes, then 5 hours before your flight takes off if normally good.
Our Better Drivers
Who are your drivers?
Most of our drivers have been driving professionally with the public for more than 10 years. They have excellent people skills and are usually very knowledgeable about the area (what to do, best restaurants, history and attractions). Some of our drivers are also professional tour guides that go to the Grand Canyon and many other destinations.
We have high standards for our drivers including safety, reliability and customer service. Drivers are very helpful with bags. They get the door for you. All drivers go through extensive background checks with the airport in order to pick up passengers.
We also train them by driving them through the airport, explaining all the rules, and showing them where to pick people up and drop people off.

Things You Should Know
Does it make sense to take an Uber or Lyft?
Uber and Lyft drivers often cancel once they arrive at your house, because the app doesn't tell them where they are going until they arrive at your home. Usually drivers don't want to drive that far and not get paid for two hours to drive back, or they are unavailable to work for that long. This may result in you missing your flight after 2-3 of them cancel in a row, and they charge you $5 each time for the cancellation. You then try to contact Uber or Lyft over the next week to get a refund, and they don't even have a phone number.
Another thing to consider is that Uber and Lyft drivers are never interviewed, so you may get a depressed guy complaining about his life, a tiny car with no leg room or a creeper. Uber and Lyft also do not train their drivers and the airport is moderately confusing to most people, so they usually have no idea where to go.
How reliable is the Greyhound bus or an Arizona shuttle with a lot of people?
Companies that do shared rides will try to pick you up an hour or two earlier, but they make no promises about when you will actually get to the airport. If you're on a tight schedule, the shared ride option with Arizona shuttle or the Greyhound is probably not a good idea. Extra stops and scheduling with other passengers can either make you too early or potentially late. Even with great drivers, passengers can be unpredictable and end up making everyone miss their flight.
We offer: phoenix to grand canyon tours, transportation from phoenix to grand canyon south rim, transportation from phoenix to grand canyon train, affordable service that is much better than a phoenix to grand canyon bus.
What to see from Phoenix to Grand Canyon?
We are happy to take the scenic route from Phoenix to Grand Canyon south rim, help you plan a day trip from Phoenix to Grand Canyon, or go from Phoenix to Grand Canyon via Sedona. Sedona is a frequently overlooked gem of Arizona with stunning red rocky cliffs and landscapes. One of the great reasons to let someone else do the driving is that you get to see so much more and drivers know were all the great spots are to visit and take pictures.
Can you take the train to the Grand Canyon?
Yes, you just need to get a shuttle from PHX to the Grand Canyon Railway in Williams AZ. The best way to get their is with our company, because it's non-stop and we take you all the way. There is no actual Phoenix to Grand Canyon train.
Is Sedona near Phoenix?
Yes, Sedona is about 1 hour and 40 minutes from Phoenix by car or shuttle. The Greyhound does not go to Sedona. Arizona Shuttle is very similar to the Greyhound as far as travel time (3 hours) and multiple stops.
The Phoenix to Grand Canyon bus takes about 8 hours on the Greyhound or another shared ride shuttle service, and I don't believe the Greyhound actually goes into the Grand Canyon National Park since it costs an extra $7 per person for the entry fee in a bus.
What is the closest town to the Grand Canyon?
At the south rim it's the Grand Canyon Village, AZ inside the park or Tusayan AZ right outside the national park.
At the north rim it's Marble Canyon, AZ outside the park. Marble Canyon is right next to a beautiful bridge that people can walk on and look down at the Colorado River.
There are lots of companies that offer Phoenix to Grand Canyon tours once you are closer to the north or south rim of the Grand Canyon, but you will save a lot of money if you skip getting a rental car and just book your transportation with a shuttle service that also does Grand Canyon Tours like us. In fact I think we are the only company that does that since Arizona Shuttle doesn't do tours. It's also a lot more exclusive, non-stop and flexible on time and what you want to see.
What is the best airport to fly into for the Grand Canyon?
There are no direct flights to the Grand Canyon or the Flagstaff Airport, and the Grand Canyon Airport is mainly for helicopter rides. The cost to fly from PHX to Flagstaff ranges from $150 to $350 per person plus taxes and baggage fees depending on demand and time of year. The least expensive option is to fly into PHX and take a shuttle to the Grand Canyon. If you do decide to fly into Flagstaff, and then get a shuttle to the Grand Canyon the amount of time to get through the airport, wait for the plane to take off and get your bags is about the same as just driving from the Phoenix Airport to Flagstaff. So there really is no advantage as far as time. The only difference is that the flight will probably cost you more, especially if you are traveling with someone. With two or more people the shuttle will normally be half the price or less.
Where is the best place to stay when visiting the Grand Canyon?
We really enjoy staying at the El Tovar Hotel; they have different options like the Kachina Lodge and the Bright Angel Lodge. You can also reserve cabins down near the Colorado River, but the waiting list for both mule rides to the bottom of the South Rim and cabins is 12-14 months. The accommodations at the El Tovar Hotel are a lot more comfortable. Hiking to the bottom is 8-9 miles and very steep. Hiking to the bottom and back up the same day is not really a good idea if you aren't a professional athlete.
