A Perfect Trip
Alana_K, Mar 2023
My sister and I had a perfect day! We were a bit apprehensive about traveling 7+ hours roundtrip to the grand canyon from Phoenix, but Eddie made the experience safe, enjoyable and fun! The travel flew by and Eddie showed us the best parts of the Canyon. The travel time was easily worth it. In addition, the personalization of the trip to our needs made us very comfortable and happy. It did not feel like a corporate trip and felt like traveling with friends. I would easily recommend this company, and if I were to come back to Phoenix, I would book with them again!

Trip of a lifetime
Kathleen_S, Dec 2022
Remarkable vistas at the Canyon cannot be described; they need to be experienced! Our tour guide/driver (Noel) was the most informative, personable and accommodating guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of traveling with. This tour was remarkable and one I would highly recommend.
Beautiful Views!

Breathtaking views on all day tour!
Amy_B, Dec 2022
Bobby was amazing! So friendly, kind and knowledgeable. We enjoyed all of the stops along the way to the Grand Canyon. He was also great with all of the details… water, phone chargers, etc. I definitely recommend this trip!
A must do tour!
Courtney_W, Dec 2022
Noel was the BEST guide for the day! He was incredibly knowledgeable about so many different things. He was well prepared for the day and took such great care of us all day long.
Sylvia_H, Nov 2022
What an awesome experience. Better to be in person than seeing pictures. The actual trip to the Grand Canyon will be a forever remembered Event.
Great Tour of the Grand Canyon
Erica_F, Oct 2022
From the start till the end of the tour, we had a fantastic time. Noel was our tour guide and he did such a great job, sharing his knowledge of the Grand Canyon and little facts on our way to the Grand Canyon. We did a private tour, so we were able to make it our own. Noel took us to all the best places for a great view on the Canyon and he took us to Route 66 so we could see that. We made stops on the way for souvenirs or if we had to use the restroom. He picked us up exactly on time. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Awesome Grand Canyon tour
DeCynda_C, Oct 2022
The Route 66 tour was an added bonus. Our tour guide was awesome! Such amazing views of the Grand Canyon!
Our Grand Canyon Tour 10-12-22
David_C, Oct 2022
Some of the sites that Noel took us to were breathtaking. We would have liked a Tour offering that was not a Seniors Tour, but one that was Adults only match with same locations. Skipping Williams / Route 66 would have provided more time at the actual Canyon.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks very much for your review! Our tours are all ages tours and we have no control over the ages of our guests and when they choose to travel. No matter your age, rest assured all the viewpoints at the Grand Canyon are amazing. It is quite a drive from Phoenix, and we do everything we can to please all of our guests, with a site or two along the way such as Williams for a bit of Route 66 history. The earlier our guests reserve, the more ability there is to choose how the itinerary will go. So for those considering our tours, book early. We'd love to have you back on board with a bit more than a week's notice and we can tailor the tour more for you. Thanks!
Fabulous Tour and Guide
Linda_P, Oct 2022
What a wonderful trip to the Grand Canyon! Lisette was a fabulous! guide i learned so much about the area. She managed all the details making sure we saw all the best vantage points for pictures. i really enjoy the small group tour and personal attention. Definitely recommend this Tour and guide for a fabulous time!
GEOFFREY_M, Sep 2022
It’s a long day but we’ll worth it. The Grand Canyon itself was even more incredible than anticipated and the numerous stops around the rim enabled us to appreciate it from several perspectives. The vehicle was extremely comfortable and the a/c effective on an oppressively hot day. Prior to the tour Steve was easy to contact and prompt with his responses and Noel was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. We had an outstanding day.
A taste of the Grand Canyon
Judith_B, Sep 2022
This was a great day trip to get a taste of the Grand Canyon. Our tour guide, Lizette, was accommodating and made the trip comfortable.
Spectacular Time at Grand Canyon
Melanie_V, Aug 2022
First visit to the Grand Canyon and this tour did not disappoint. Bobby was AMAZING. From the time he picked us up and dropped us off it felt like we were on a trip with a family member. He was so sweet and full of knowledge. If you have a full day to spare while in Phoenix, it is well worth it. PS the owner Steve was so professional and nice. As soon as I booked this tour, he personally called to introduce himself. I really liked that. So much so, I even cancelled our Sedona tour with another company and booked with him.
