This trip was long but well worth it. Our tour guide Bobby was great! He was timely, knowledgeable, super friendly and just fun. He came to pick us up in a nice, clean air conditioned van. The tour group was very small which we liked. We got to spot and take pictures along the way and the sights were just amazing. We also got to stop and eat and a bit of shopping. The weather was perfect and so was the tour. Highly recommend!

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!

After having driven throughout my Southwestern trip, I decided it might be more relaxing and productive to book a tour and let someone else do the driving. The tour worked out perfectly. Our guide Sheldon was knowledgeable, more than accommodating, and created a sense of fun throughout. I would highly recommend this tour.

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.

Sheldon made the trip even better than we imagined. He was friendly and very knowledgeable.
