    Breath taking of every scenery that we stopped and got enjoyed. The audio is as a great way!! Being our first time touring through the Grand Canyon, I’m so glad we did this way. It gave us history that we didn’t know about. We were able to take our time in visiting the different canyon points. I recommend the audio to do a tour with family and friends. You will get a great experience.

    Thanks Bailey! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed my tour narration! I have other tours across the country, which I hope you check out on future vacations!
    Very confusing and a wast...
    Carlotta_F, Feb 2023
    Very confusing and a wast of money. Ended doing the tour on our own without the guide. Totally worthless and just took my money
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    I’m sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. I wish you had contacted me earlier. I have a call/chat/email/help option. In any case, I will happily exchange the tour with any of my other 100 tours in the US. Please let me know. This tour is yours for a lifetime. You can use it for pictures, a second review at home, sharing with friends, and for your next trip here.
    David_C, Nov 2022
    Very unorganized. Lack of information. I would not recommend anything. Very disappointed. Wasted time and money

    The narrative was very interesting. Driving directions were inadequate to go from place to place. It made the experience frustrating
    You need to be more...
    Patricia_H, Aug 2022
    You need to be more computer friendly for old folks like me!! It was very difficult to get our tour, plus the audio didn’t work once we got to the beginning of our should refund my $14 bucks😡
    Response from Host, Sep 2022
    Thanks for your feedback Patricia! I'm so sorry for your experience! Our tours and app are designed to be accessible to people of all ages. We have had older adults use our tours, and they loved the experience we provided because it is very flexible to use at your own pace and simple to operate. The device you were using for the tour may have been connected to Bluetooth, which could explain why the audio wasn't coming out of the phone speaker. I would gladly exchange your tour for one of my other 100 tours in the US — hopefully, you'll get the chance to try them next time — or contact us with your receipt for a full refund. Please get in touch with us via phone or email. Also, to remind you, the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit.

    Margarita_S, Aug 2022
    They didn’t accept out tickets and didn’t let us go though. Yet they scanned it to tell me that we all have to have our own separate ticket even the scan bar code said it was for all 4 of us. They was no WiFi or cellphone reception at all and I couldn’t call to help me it was the worse experience no one could help me but tell me to pay again.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Since this isn't an online ticket, it seems like your review is for something different. This tour is self-guided.
    Only got to see about half the tour
    Barbara_L, Jul 2022
    We only were able to do about half the tour. The route the directions took us on are no longer accessible at one point and there were no alternative options to get to the second half of the tour. We even tried skipping ahead but it just took us in circles wanting us to take a road that was no longer open to unauthorized vehicles.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Hi Barbara, as my tour description points out (as does the tour itself), part of the Grand Canyon experience involves riding the park shuttles. The tour gives instructions on when to park and switch to the shuttle. Please let me know if those instructions can be clearer!
    Micheal_B, Jul 2022
    We enjoyed most of the tour but sometimes it was hard to follow. More interactive app would be nice to have
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    I’d love to know more about how to improve! A lot of the drive is a single road so I’m not sure what I can do to make it easier to follow. I’d really love to hear from you!
    Most hassle free experience ever!
    Sean_T, Jun 2022
    We loved how easy was to navigate the self driving -walking tour. It would recommend it to friends and family. Definitely can save a lot of $$$ and time by using this app.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Thank you so much for the great review, Sean! I’m so glad you loved the flexibility and convenience of my self-guided tour. I also have other tours all over the country — hope you get the chance to try them out!
    A small walk up then Wow!
    Joy_M, Apr 2022
    It was nice to walk up a shprt path amd be blown away by absolute beauty. The Grand Canyon was so amazing. Seeing it from the different angles was nice. We did the car tour it was about 4hrs including lunch at El Tovar? A good time indeed
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Many thanks! The grand canyon's beauty is difficult to explain in words, but our tour enhances it. I'm so delighted our self-guided tour helped make your trip to the Grand Canyon memorable and enjoyable. We are constantly striving to provide our consumers with this wonderful experience. I'm overjoyed that you enjoyed our tour so much. Once again, thank you for brightening our day with your lovely review.
    Helpful tour guide to south rim
    Mary_L, Mar 2022
    Seeing the views. Learning the history. Very helpful tool. Would be helpful to be able to adjust or reverse the tour sequence if you're arriving from the east or south as we were.
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thanks Mary! I’m so glad you enjoyed our Grand Canyon tour, and we’ll have a reverse version starting from the East Entrance out soon! I hope you get the chance to try another Action Tour Guide tour on your next adventure!
    Informative tour
    Patricia_H, Mar 2022
    Very informative tour. Once you got yourself centered, it was easy to use Liked being able to go at your own pace.
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thanks Patricia! What can we do to improve our tour to a five-star experience?
    Easy and informative.
    Heather_W, Jan 2022
    Great job on the narration. I liked being able to put my phone in my pocket and not be messed with constantly.

    Some insights on view points
    Francine_F, Sep 2021
    Interesting comments about the various sites. General observations about the Canyon. Could have filled more time with othe narration
    Response from Host, Sep 2021
    Glad you enjoyed the tour and thank you for the suggestion! I’d love to know which areas of the park could use more info — please email us via the app menu so we can get your recommendation included in the next update!

    My family and I really enjoyed this self guided tour. It allowed us to experience the Grand Canyon on our time and terms, and provided us with interesting information about the what were seeing/experiencing along the way.
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    We’re so happy to hear this! The only thing that makes exploring a place as magnificent as the Grand Canyon is doing it on your own terms! Next time you’re in the mood for another self-guided tour, check out our full catalogue at

    The audio tour is quite comprehensive and fun. Only issue was that the map stopped popping up after the first couple of stops...
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    It’s great to hear that you had fun! The Grand Canyon is one of our newest tours, and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with our listeners.
