    The tour was great! Was picked up promptly by Diane, our guide, at my hotel. She was personable, knowledgeable, and conscientious. After picking up the rest of our group she kept us informed of info and trivia about the area on our drive to the Canyon. We had plenty of time to explore the Canyon and Diane took us to a few different spots so we could get the full experience. It was amazing and a great way to visit the Canyon on a short trip to Phoenix. Would highly recommend!

    Jennifer was so knowledgeable. She not only gave us information about the Canyon, but about all sorts of things along the way, from the history of the area to the science and biology around us. She also made sure we were acquainted with each stop before sending us off. Loved sharing this experience with her.

    The driver picked us up at our hotel right on time. The van seats were comfortable and charging station for our cell was a huge bonus as it is several hours to the Grand Canyon. Our guide was very informative , stops were awesome and, most of all, he was extremely patient with clients that were rather demanding. I highly recommend this company as it provides what it offers!
