I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona. I only do small groups and it's a full day. I've been doing these tours for over 20 years and have lived here all my life. No one knows more of this fantastic place than me, so give me a try!

From pre booking questions, scheduling and same day pick up, all went well and exceeded all expectations! Marv and his wife were friendly, accomadating and knowledgeable in educating my family of four on the great history and vistas of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Pick up in their van, we were the only ones on the tour on... More

We went on Marv and Maggie's tour last week. I was a bit nervous as I booked this for 7 members of my family ranging in age from 74-21 and wondered if it would be appreciated and enjoyed by them all. The answer... YES! This is the only way to see the Grand Canyon. You start learning things from Marv... More

Marv and Maggie were amazing! They are both full of knowledge about every aspect of the Grand Canyon. They provide information about the geology, the wildlife, the culture and more. They know the best places to go and beat the rush, they know all the spots for great picture opportunities, and share their wealth of knowledge along the way. It... More

Information and insightful tour of the area and the Grand Canyon. Marv was under the weather, but Maggie was delightful. My earlier visits to G.C. were tourist glances at stuff I did not know what I was seeing. Maggie brought it to life. We walked, we looked, we ate, we visited, and came away with a whole different appreciation of... More

Don't try the Grand Canyon on your own or it could be a shallow experience. Marvelous Marv's trip to the south rim provides an insight into the geology, the culture, the beauty, the respect, and the secrets of the Canyon that you can only experience through a Canyon master. Certainly if you want to go there to say you've been... More

Can't say enough about the Duet of Marv and Maggie. They picked us up at our hotel, on time and spent the day providing great information. Our tour began with a history lesson of Williams. Maggie explained the technical information of how the Canyon was formed (more than we could remember). The tour allowed us to bypass the normal tourist... More

Thank goodness we picked Marv to tour the Grand Canyon. As first timers to this magical place we were put in the hands of a very knowledgeable guy with a quirky sense of humour. We had so much fun and learnt so much in one day. Plus Marv does all the driving and parking. He was even good taking snaps... More

We were picked up right at our camping sight and began the day with a happy and knowledgable guide. His personalality along with his knowledge of the Grand Canyon and areas around would surpass anyone. An enjoyable day that felt like spending with a friend. Keeping ahead of the crowds but still taking us to the best vantage points and... More

Found business on Google search. Mostly great reviews and we found out why. Picked us up right at our campsite. 1 hour drive with info on local area. Started at best spot,as they knew rush was coming there later. Informative. Comfortable riding in van. Safety was stressed. Suggested lunch,that was good. Well spent 6 hours.
