Long day - longer than advertised but it allowed us to take pictures of the far side of the canyon as the shadows changed. Greg our driver was very friendly and knowledgable and didn't seem to want to leave the canyon for the long drive home ! Good value for money and a memorable day.

Just a wonderful day trip to the South Rim. Driver Jeff kept things moving for the 13 hour journey, and the views of the Grand Canyon and visits to small towns in Arizona made it a very memorable trip. Highly recommended!
