Our tour guide was Frank and he was fantastic! Very friendly, informative and funny. We had some bad weather heading to and from the canyon but he did an amazing job, I felt incredibly safe. He let us take multiple rest stops and food breaks. He taught us about photography and helped us to get the best shots. He really went above and beyond for us!

All in all excellent experience and worth every penny. Everything went smoothly, from hotel pick-up to the drive back to the hotel after activity. The drivers, guys at the airport check-in and especially the pilot were all very friendy and made this experience even better. Landing in Grand Canyon with picnic is worth it!!!
