Amazing experience. The views were amazing at all attractions and Grand Canyon is the most beautiful place I ever seen. Our driver and guide, Claudio, was so nice and helpful. He provided delicious lunch, snacks, water and sodas and gave us many information about all the places we saw. I recommend this tour to anyone, it was fantastic.

Claudio was an excellent guide , very informative and answered everyone’s questions. We are hoping to come back within the next couple of years and hopefully get him again .

The movie is very educational and you gain a great understanding of how the Grand Canyon was made and the men that conquered the river

The movie showed us parts of the canyon we weren’t able to see in person!
