Our pilot/guide, Mike, was fantastic! He watched out for us, relayed historical facts, and was funny. And the views and transportation modes-all wonderful! We felt we got our money's worth.
Cindy was very cheerful and informative, made the trip very enjoyable even with the weather not being so great.

Fantastic tour! Our guide, Smokey was excellent. Very knowledgeable on the history and geography of the area. Plenty of time at each stop to enjoy it. Several stops in the canyon as well as the lava flow and pueblo ruins. Great lunch at the Cameron Trading Post. Wonderful small group tour.
Trip of a lifetime!
It was wonderfull tour from the beginning till end! Thanks!
Our pilot on the plane Mike and the pilot on the helicopter Chris were great. Mike was like our guardian angel keeping all eight of us in check through out the entire day. The boat tour guides were equally accommodating, but unfortunately I do not remember their names.
I am very happy to have chosen this tour. The guide was extremely informative and excellent host for the day. We got to see lava flows, snow peaks and Indian ruins that we might not have seen if travelling on our own and since I wasn't driving I got to view the changing surrounding scenery all the better.
This was the first tour we have ever been on and we had a great time. Chris, our tour guide and driver made sure we were taken care of and was very friendly, personable, and knowledgable. He was a fountain of information and was never without a word to say. The 10 hours from Flagstaff went by fast. The tour not only takes you to three Grand Canyon overlooks, but we also stopped at Sunset Crater, Wapatki Ruins, and the famous Cameron Trading Post. We heartily recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Chris. You are the BEST!
Excellent tour. Very informative and entertaining at the same time. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the areas we covered. Not quite enough time in the Grand Canyon but still very well done.
Our tour guide was KRISTIN and she did a FABULOUS job!! She took pictures of everyones group at all the stops and that was soo important to us! She was fun and exciting and funny!! The trip/tour was amazing! She picked us up from our Sky Ranch Lodge Hotel and we were able to see all the beautiful sights from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. We took the helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon and got a 8 X 10 picture after we were finished w/ the awesome experience that we will never forget!! Our lunch at the El Tovar lodge was wonderful w/ an incredible view over-looking the canyon and the food was soo very tasty!! Desserts were fabulous!! After our tour was complete, we had an awesome sunset ride back into the Sedona area and were able to see the sunsetting on all those beautiful Red Rocks. It was an incredible full-day experience w/ Kristin from Great West tours. She was awesome!! Cindy, Katie and Emily Prescott from Savannah, Ga.

The tour with James held our interest from departure to return. His engagement with the content of the tour and broad knowledge of geology, the land, cultural history and indigenous people's history was great. We also enjoyed the lunch at the Cameron Trading Co. The power and remarkable vistas in the Painted Desert and Grand Canyon will remain with us forever! Thanks for a great day!

Great West Tours trip from Sedona was outstanding for our tour on March 22, 2016 but I recommend future users deal directly with Great West google them to take advantage of their direct discount deals the owner Bob answers the phone himself and was very accommodating. David our tour guide and driver was very personable and had great knowledge of the area, the history and his dual college degrees made him exceptional for facts and myths. He made sure we had plenty of water and snacks for the day and ensured we knew when our next stop for rest rooms and purchases would take place. Although the approximately 16 seat bus was not sedan comfortable we weren't on dirt roads and David made sure our temperature needs were met. Of course the scenery, especially the canyon itself were spectacular. The stop at the IMAX theater for the movie about the history of the Canyon was very educational and fun. As I added up the amount it would have cost for individual items included in the tour cost IMAX, gas, admission fee to the park, Great West gift post cards of paintings of the canyon, and a full meal at the cafeteria style restaurant the price was reasonable. Watching visitors who drove themselves to the park try to find a parking spot at the various locations proved to me that the tour was the way to go.

AMAZING trip - our guide was Sheldon - he has to be one of your best. He took us to the ruins, the volcano and then 6 viewpoints thru the Grand Canyon. At each stop he gave us information about what we were seeing and made sure we had enough time to enjoy the stop. Very knowledgeable about the area and keep everyone engaged the entire tour. He made sure each guest was having a good time, including the two teenagers I had with me. We were lucky enough to see a herd of elk as we were leaving the Grand Canyon so he made sure we got the pictures we wanted. Both 15 year old granddaughters went on and on about what a great guide he was and how much fun they had. They will return next Spring break and want to do another tour but only if we can have Sheldon as our guide. KUDOS to you Sheldon and thanks for an awesome experience.
It was wonderful: beyond expectations! Andrea is an excellent guide, driver, and a lovely, considerate person. We had planned to drive to the GC or come back another time and take the train. Thanks to Andrea, we got more out of one day with her than we would have by ourselves. She is very knowledgeable and shared very interesting details of the history and topography of the areas we passed. We HIGHLY recommend this tour.
When planning our Phoenix vacation, we had always intended to check out the Grand Canyon, but it was a very last minute thought that we should do a tour, because we would have absolutely no idea how to maximize our time there. We are SO glad that we booked this tour. Chris, our guide, was extremely personable and knowledgeable about the area and its history and made the tour an absolutely delight. We stopped at many vantage points for photos and Chris always made himself available to take family photos that included all members of the familyincluding the primary picture taker. The tour was extremely affordable and the pick-up and drop-off service from our hotel made it as convenient as it could possibly be. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to make the most of a day at the Grand Canyon!

The tour was amazing. Our tour guide made several stops along the way. He was very knowledgeable about the history and gave us ample time to explore and take photos. Our guide made sure to avoid crowds so our experience was enjoyable and personal. I highly recommend this tour and when I return to Phoenix, I will use Viator to book another tour. Thank you.
