Traveler Tips

Many stops are available, but the stops selected for the tour were well chosen to illustrate points about geology, the river, an human occupation.
We highly suggest taking this tour, as touring Grand Canyon on one’s own would be without the significant depth of appreciation that we gained.

Adrienne_S, Dec 2022
When we arrived, total white-out - zero visibility. It was snowing and windy. Our guide, Tim, was optimistic and upbeat despite the conditions. In the afternoon the sun came out, the white curtain lifted, and there was the GC in all its beauty. Tim was great, very knowledgeable . We had a great time.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We really appreciate your feedback. We think Tim is awesome too and we are very happy you got to see the beautiful Canyon in the afternoon.
Excellent and worth every nickel!

Our day was absolutely perfect! Our guide, Tim, was amazing!!! If you are going to visit the Grand Canyon, this is the only way to go. We were beyond impressed!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and kind words. Happy travels!
Wonderful Experience!
Kimberly_F, Feb 2022
Tim (from Canyon Dave's Tours) was a wonderful guide! He picked us up promptly from our Flagstaff VRBO nand drove us to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. He was knowledgeable about geography, geology, botany, and history. We stopped several times at various points, including lunch at the Yavapai Tavern. We learned so much but had fun in the process. If you only have a day to spend, I strongly recommend hiring a guide. It's money well worth spent!!!
Response from Host, Feb 2022

Views with history
Yogesh_N, Sep 2021
The views of the canyon were amazing! The tour guide was awesome, answered all questions and had some great random facts! Not a lot of hiking, but definitely get to take in the Grand Canyon experience. Great for first timers visiting the Grand Canyon.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
So glad you enjoyed your GC experience! Our goal is always to exceed expectations. It's folks like you that make our job a joy :) Thanks!
Grand Canyon Plus!
Kimberly_M, Jul 2021
The Grand Canyon is considered one of the wonders of the world and never disappoints. Having a guide who is knowledgeable of geology and forestry brings another layer to the experience that should not be missed. Thank you, Ingrid!
Chris_P, Jul 2021
Guide must incredible but the website showed much more stops at different places. Feel very mislead.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Hi Chris, We're so sorry you felt misled. On our website, the only viewpoint guaranteed is Yavapai, and then it lists several others and says we will go to as many as there is time for. If you had requested a particular site, we would have done it if it were possible. Thank you for your feedback. It's important to us to exceed expectations. We're sorry yours weren't. Dora and Dave Thayer

Unforgettable Memories
Derek_S, Jul 2021
Our tour guide Ingrid was absolutely amazing! Her knowledge was incredible inside and outside of the canyon. She was great with my young son also. Made the trip an unforgettable one! Highly recommend!
This is certainly one of the top tours I have taken in the many national parks I have visited.
James_K, Jul 2021
Ask any question about the Canyon and you will get a straight forward, understandable answer. Our guide was well versed in geology, biology, history, and anthropology. He provided just enough information to help us make sense of what we were experiencing, but stopped short of "too much information". Many stops are available, but the stops selected for the tour were well chosen to illustrate points about geology, the river, an human occupation. In addition, our guide was very attentive to our needs and well being. This tour gets an A+ for comfort, interest, and entertainment.
Book this Tour
loretta_t, Jul 2021
A great tour. I have booked tours all over the work and this was a good one. I am so glad I booked this tour. I originally booked because I didn't want to drive, but the trip was simply amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He gave a lot of great information but did not bore us. He knew the local history had some great stories and also knew about the geological history and gave a great short lesson on the geology of the area. We were provided with information about the plants of the area in addition to the geologic handouts. My grand sons learned a lot more than they would have if I was trying to read from a guide book. I loved learning about the flora and fauna of the area. We had ample time at each stop to wander around and take photos. Lunch was a big surprise it was great that the grandkids could get their favorite PIZZA. I would do this again.

The views were amazing and our guide,Tim, was great!! He was very knowledgeable and the meal provided was nice.
Excellent day tour with a highly informed guide.
Donna_W, Jun 2021
My husband and I had a wonderful day. Keaton is a well informed and friendly guide. The views are obviously outstanding, but the information about the history of the Canyon, the plant and wildlife along with the geology lesson was over the top. Highly recommend!
The perfect way to see the Grand Canyon!
Leigh_K, Jun 2021
We had a great time. I had read that if you drive to the Grand Canyon, that you get out look around for @20 minutes & that’s about it. I looked at the Viator tours because I knew there had to be more. This tour was perfect for me& my two teens. Our guide was easy going and showed us many different lookout points and told us great stories of the history of the Canyon. He also told us about trees and vegetation and how they were used by the native Americans for food, baskets, bedding, etc. and about the animal life past& present. We learned about the different tribes and their beliefs. It was a real treat to relax and eat a picnic lunch in a shady spot and take it all in. I use Viator tours when traveling in Europe. No matter the experience, they never disappoint.
