    Riya_D, Nov 2023
    This was a great tour for a quick Grand Canyon trip if you don’t have enough time in your hand . Cara was a fantastic guide and she was so engaging . We saw quite a few highlight points of the park . Once the window flaps are down the inside of the Jeep is very warm and there are blankets also .

    Best tour and sights of the GC
    Karly_S, Nov 2023
    Excellent GC experience! Mike was a terrific tour guide - informative, kind, patient. We had young kids and grandparents, and he was a gem! The sunset was stunning - as is every view in the GC. It was cold, though, so dress warmly! They do provide blankets (appreciated) and water. Hands down must do when visiting!

    Robin_J, Nov 2023
    Great excursion while visiting Grand Canyon. Takes you off road for a bit to see the forest and places inaccessible to most tourists. Then Werner our guide, who was extremely knowledgeable and fun, took us to many amazing lookouts and described many historical facts about locations we could see from various vantage points. Highly recommend.
