This tour was very worthwhile. The ride to the grand canyon was very scenic and the tour guide gave a lot of hosiery and cool information throughout the entirety of the day. She was very knowledgeable and versatile to work with. Due to some inclement weather, she had to rearrange some things during our tour but she did it in a manner that we didn't even notice and it definitely didn't take away from the quality of the tour. I believe the tour guide s name was Diane or Diana. She was excellent. We enjoyed every moment from start to finish. She constantly made sure everyone was comfortable and well hydrated and just overall, made the tour very enjoyable.

Our guide Diane was amazing. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the canyon and route to it was phenomenal. It was an incredible day we will always remember. This small group tour had it all and allowed us to enjoy the canyon with time and insight. We arrived to cloud but it lifted to the most magnificent vistas and a rainbow over the canyon. A highly recommended day!

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!
