This was one of the best tours I’ve taken. Again Get Your Guide did not fail. Pickup was seamless and the guide was homegrown to Phoenix. He knew all the ins and outs of the area. We drove to the Grand Canyon one way and came back a different way they Sedona with in-depth description of the area along with pertinent history of the area. It was a long day but very well worth the trip. There were 10 people of our van but he was accommodating and told us what to expect each stop and destination.

Knowledgeable guide as well as safe driver, the guide was very considerate, flexible to customer suggestions and took care of all details. We enjoyed our tour wry much.

The tour was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We made frequent stops so we weren’t restless and we got a lot packed into one day!

We had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some great information. I just wish we could have been to one of the actual vortex sites.

Wonderful tour guide, Noel was very friendly and knowledgeable, I would recommend this tour.
