Very informative trip from Sedona through the Pueblo ruins, delicious lunch and amazing vistas of the Grand Canyon. Sheldon was so knowledgeable about the area and was a very enthusiastic guide! Made the Grand Canyon come to life!
More than expected
Carl_D, Dec 2022
This was a great way to experience the Grand Canyon for the first time especially with a family. The tour was super convenient with pick up and drop off from our resort. The van was very roomy and comfortable for a 12 hour tour. Our guide, Sheldon, was super friendly and very knowledgeable on the local land features and little nuggets of information about everything. The short stops at the volcanic park and native American villages were a nice surprise. Would recommend this to anybody visiting the Sedona area looking for a very convenient and informative tour.

Cheryl_S, May 2022
Our tour guide, Al Bubala, was great! It’s hard to imagine how one person can pack so much information into one tour! He made sure we saw all of the important sites and that he took photos for each person on the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour as well as Al and some great stories along the way! Thank you!
The tour and tour guide...
Nancy_G, May 2022
The tour and tour guide were great. However the fact that my wife's cell phone and credit card as well as cash was stolen at THE CAMERON TRADING POST and when she wanted to report the incident she had no assistance from the staff @ THE TRADING POST. Future tours should warn tourists to be careful when at the Trading Post. The phone was traced to a area within a few miles of the trading post.
It was indeed grand!
Vivian_B, May 2022
First views of the canyon literally took my breath away! The colors of the rock formations looked like nature’s best watercolor. I could only think , “what God hath wrought!”
Response from Host, May 2022
You are so right...Grand Canyon takes your breath away! It's one of the reasons we love what we do and love sharing it with our guests.
Too much fun !

Karen_L, May 2022
Matt was a knowledgeable, fun guy who had no qualms about walking along the ledge of the Grand Canyon as he was giving the tour. I should add he was an avid hiker and an avid outdoorsman.
