Aldo was absolutely amazing! He did a fantastic job as our tour guide. He made sure everyone was comfortable, stopped multiple times for breaks along the way & was extremely informative and knowledgeable with the sites and history along the way. He took us to a great Italian spot for lunch in Williams, which was also a really cool place to see! All in all a truly five star experience. Highly recommend requesting Aldo as your tour guide!

Tracy was a great tour guide! His knowledge and expertise of the grand canyon along with his great driving skills even when we hit a pretty big storm on our way back were great! Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone wanting to see the grand canyon when visiting Arizona.

We were running late because of traffic but we were able to get in touch very easily and they were able to wait for us! We had lots of time to explore the Grand Canyon on our own and check out Route 66! Our guide was amazing and our fellow travellers were very nice!
