We had an excellent guide, Maverick! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating! He even turned around when he spotted a gorgeous cactus bloom after hearing that I loved flowers and had been hoping to see some! Being the end of the day with the 5:00 tour, guides are often in a hurry to be done not Maverick, he was great, I highly recommend this tour company!

Grand Canyon was amazing and it was a nice ride there. I think it would have been nice to stop somewhere for lunch instead of buying subway at 8 am. Williams was a nice stop and we probably could have eaten there. It is a long day covering three meals not provided. Sam was knowledgeable and entertaining.

Everything was great. The only thing different I would of preferred was not going to Williams to eat we could of eating and stayed longer at the Grand Canyon.

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.

It was an amazing experience. the tour guide from Detours was wonderful. the Grand Canyon is breath taking.
