We had a fantastic day with our guide, Dave!! This is the perfect way to see many points at the Grand Canyon.
We also enjoyed the dinner, but the best part of the day was the trip to the canyon and all the viewing stops!
Perfect way to see for these first timers!

Loved this tour! The mini bus we were picked up in was comfortable and on the drive up, our tour guide Christine was super knowledgeable about the area. The Grand Canyon is clearly amazing, the lunch at El Tovar was really good (dessert too!) and we stopped at many lookout points for pics.

We enjoyed our day trip to the Grand Canyon and our tour guide Joe was very informative throughout the whole trip about the history, culture, people, and geology of the area. His exerpertise was evident and also his enthusiasm for the area. The Grand Canyon views were excellent and we appreciated that we stopped at a few places at the Grand Canyon for different views of it. Highly recommend the helicopter ride through the canyon. Great views and a smooth ride. Lunch at the El Tovar was OK we didn't have a table with a view so we felt paying the extra money to eat there was not necessary. It was almost a 12-hour day, but a fun one!

The trip was all worth it. We were picked up at our hotel at exactly the time we were told. Our guide, Kristen, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We saw the IMAX movie which was very good and ate in the cafeteria which had good food. Kristen gave us plenty of time at each stop to take photos and pointed out features and told us the best places to take photos. All in all a very good experience and highly recommended for first timers to the Grand Canyon.

We had a wonderful day with Kristin as our driver/guide. She was so knowledgeable and easy to be with! The tour stops at the Grand Canyon were wonderful and the views unbelievable. I enjoyed the I-Max while my husband enjoyed the helicopter tour, which worked out great!

Having our guide pick us up in Sedona and take us to Grand Canyon was worth the price. He took us to several vantage points, lunch and we stopped off to shop at the Navajo reservation before we headed back to Sedona. It was a great memory making day! It was a beautiful day.

Lynne was knowledgable and fun, mixing know-how and humor. She went out of her way to make sure we had the best possible excursion. We ate at El Tovar Restaurant, a truly splendid culinary and visual experience at the canyon ledge. High praise all around.
