This past Monday we headed out on the Grand Canyon Tour with our guide Joel. A surprise snowstorm hit the Grand Canyon area just before we arrived which caused the road to be closed just after the first viewing area. Since the fog had reduced visibility to near zero we had to turn back. Joel put our safety in mind... More

Visiting Phoenix, I HAD to see the Grand Canyon. Trouble is, no car and the park is 3.5 hours away. I was thrilled to find a small group tour, and at 12 hours, long enough to enjoy the scenery en route and the canyon. The landscape is stunning and of course the Grand Canyon is an unbelievable treasure and a... More

Words cannot express how pleased I was with this tour. I chose the day tour of Sedona, the Navajo Nation and the Grand Canyon. I didn't think it would be possible to fit all of those places in and have time to enjoy them, but it is completely possible. The best thing about the tour was the guide. Howard was... More

The day tour to Grand Canyon via Sedona was an awesome experience. The Canyon is absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could spend more hours or even days there hiking and camping. +++On the plus side, Will is a very good guide, very energetic and positive. He provided us with lots of information about the region's culture, history, geology etc. He... More

Our tour guide, Cory, took us on the most informational and breathtaking road trip of our life. We have toured the north rim on our own, but this trip of the south rim with Cory was terrific. We would go again in a minute. Thank you Cory for an awesome experience.

I had such high expectations of this, with a little trepidation, because surely nothing that sounds this great really is... I'd read all the fantastic Tripadvisor reviews and booked... everything was TRUE! The bus is a minivan, so it's personal and everyone can see what's going on. Rich, our guide, was amazing, knew so much about every aspect of our... More

Our first time at the Grand Canyon and will made it a memorable trip. Will's extraordinary knowledge of the area was very much appreciated. Strongly recommend this tour. There is no way we would have gotten as much from our visit if we did it on our own. Will safely drove the 500+ miles to/from Phoenix while we relaxed.

We three friends took the Grand Canyon Tour, through Sedona today, with Will as our excellent guide. It was a beautiful, sunny day, with temps ranging from upper 60's, lower 70's in Sedona, to lower 60's at Grand Canyon. Will was a delight, regaling us with facts on AZ, Phoenix, botany, geology, and Native Americans, to name a few subjects.... More
