Eddie was absolutely amazing!!! He was so knowledgeable and made us feel so comfortable. We had a great time! Highly recommend!
Jonathon made for a wonderful tour
Dan_R, Mar 2024
Jonathon was great. Very knowledgeable and full of entertaining stories and facts. He also had so many clever tricks to make the tour as stress-free as possible, as well as knowing all the secret viewing places that most people don't know about. Overall, it was an outstanding tour. We are so glad that we booked it!
Great day

Johnathan was our driver/tour guide. He was professional and very knowledgeable. He had a deep knowledge and love of everything Arizona. A true please to travel with.
Fantastic experience to see a treasure
Melissa_M, Feb 2024
We really enjoyed the tour and our experience with Eddie. We had clear communication throughout and the tour company catered to our needs. We appreciated the front door pick up (and Eddie was early!), the choices to stop where we wanted and the neat opportunity to see the south and east rim. We felt safe, guided and knowledge filled from start to finish.
A very memorable experience.

Noel was a fantastic driver. He made the overall experience to the Grand Canyon a memorable one. Photos don’t do this amazing experience justice. We have already recommended your company to friends.

Super Family Fun
Robert_C, Dec 2023
We enjoied our guide Rod who was very friendly and knowledgeable. We feel we got more out of the experience with him than we ever would on our own. He made suggestions along the way that he felt our family would enjoy. He accomodated our kids well (8yo and 10yo) and developed a great raport with them. He guided us to the best places to take amazing family photos and even went out of his way to show us live elk in the wild. Great job Rod.
Personalised service and great flexibility.

We had a great time. We ended up with a private tour and Troy made sure we had a great time. He planned it so we were leaving at dusk where we got to see deer and elk crossing the road. Troy was knowledgeable and a fun guy. Would definitely ask for Troy again. He even had Halloween candy for us since it was Halloween!

Best Girls trip to Canyons
Garima_A, Oct 2023
It was a great experience taking Canyons tour with my two other friends. We were three females but felt very safe and comfortable during the drive. Darian was so nice sharing about the AZ landscape, vegetation on our way. He customized the trip, made stops as we asked. He kept telling us about the history and uniqueness of the places. We entered via east and had best canyon views from 4 or 5 different spots. Darian is very patient and knowledgeable. We definitely recommend.
Maggi_M, Oct 2023
Amazing trip!!! Our guide Eddie customized the trip to us - travelled through Sedona on the way up to the canyon. His enthusiasm was contagious making our trip even more memorable!!!!!
Excellent tour and guide!
Zenovia_S, Oct 2023
This tour was the perfect way to explore The Grand Canyon during our recent trip to Arizona. Our guide, Steve, was flexible, knowledgable and happy to answer any questions we had. He helped us capture family pictures and was even helpful with our youngest when he got grumpy and didn't want to participate in family pics anymore. In a time where it's hard to trust others, we can confidently say we felt safe and secure throughout our time with Steve. I highly recommend this company and this tour!

Grand Canyon Trip
Cindy_S, Oct 2023
Seeing the Grand Canyon for the 1st time was awesome. The views were breath taking! The van was very clean and comfortable. The tour guide was very friendly and quick to respond to any needs we had. He is young and was eager to speak of himself and his past experiences. He was happy to hear about ours as well. His enthusiasm was great! He was eager to do his best. My pointers to him include: 1. Please be on time - our time is very important to us 2. Stay with your party so that when we are ready to move on, we don't waste time looking for you. 3. Please educate yourself more about the history/information about the GC - The Rims, etc. Overall, we had a good time and it was nice not to drive. But for what we paid for this trip, we could have driven ourselves and had the same or better experience. I understand that this was his first run and he was very eager to do a good job. I'm just giving these pointers so that the next tour will be better. I 'm not trying to get anyone fired just improve the experience for the next person.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thanks very much for your review. I appreciate the suggestions very much, and we will share this with your guide. It is very nice of you to provide this feedback in the manner that you have, in a constructive and friendly way. Thank you so much for that!! I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Canyon, and it was a pleasure meeting you when we crossed paths at the Trading Post. Thank you again for touring with us.
