This was a great tour, the drivers were knowledgable on the city and surrounding areas. We loved the Grand Canyon and the train ride. I would recommend this tour to others.

Fantastic. Well looked after from start to finish. Guides were extremely knowledgable
And interesting. Excellent balance of time to ourselves and organised activities. Didn't have to think about anything except to turn up at correct time at pickups. On the one occasion where we missed a train due to transport problems, everything was sorted out for us and we still got our train ride, plus an extra bonus hour at the Grand Canyon. Not sure how much background activity there was to sort this out, but we knew it would be sorted and remained relaxed. Only thing I would have appreciated guidance on was tipping.

All the connections were perfect. Only the last one was 15 minutes late. No big deal. Our guide was wonderful. She knew the history and pointed out the different local plants. Even went out of her way to guide us on the walks. There was plenty of time open to do the jeep tour, helicopter ride, and see the Canyon at our leisure.

We enjoyed our trip very much, well organized and pleasant and knowledgeable reliable guides.
Our recommendation would be to offer an upscale version of the trip re. train tickets and accommodation, the hotels were very basic!.

Everything was spectacular, however people need to be advised that this is really a shuttle service that picks you up and drops you off at the various locations. If you like lots of structured events this might not be for you. We had lots of "free time" which suited us just fine.

Our tour guide was asked several times for a restroom stop but did not respond to the needs of the ladies. Our tour started well before lunch and lasted four hours after lunch. Have you ever thought about the needs of people with diabeties!
Our tour guide dropped us off and told us the hotel was about ten minutes away. Maybe for a twenty-seven year old, but for a sixty-four year old with diabeties and high blood pressure..............not so much.
I will never use your service again or recommend it to any of my friends.

The trip was well planned and things were on schedule. The drivers were friendly and helpful. I loved that I had plenty of free time to do the things I wanted to do, rather than being committed to short stops in places before moving on. For those doing the train trip, here's one thing to be aware of: the drop off time in the morning is 2.5 hours before the train leaves, and there is nothing to do once you've been dropped off. Do take a good book with you. Other than that, this was most enjoyable and I would use the tour company again when I am back in the U.S.

It would probably help to include in the tour details that this is not an escorted tour. Rather it is a booking service for multiple tours combined into one and you get passed from guide to guide like a hot potato - one for the drive from Phoenix to Sedona, another in Sedona, one for the drive to the railway station, then the guide on the train, then the guide on the Canyon tour, then the driver for the trip back to Phoenix. Much of the time we did not know which company we were dealing with. We were even not 100% sure what time we would be picked up from the Canyon on the last day! As experienced travellers the type of tour did not faze us, but other customers might like to know this. Also, you are left on your own to organise the helicopter tour in the Canyon. If you are planning on doing this trip it might be worthwhile booking it ahead of time for the morning of the third day or doing it as soon as you get to the lodge as we had difficulty booking one when we did it on our return to the lodge late on day2.

The trip was a day too long. Not enough information on Sedona. It would have been better to have gone on the jeep ride in the am in Sedona and then go onto the Grand Canyon in the afternoon. Getting dumped in Sedona at 9.00am and told to go shoppong for the rest of the day was not good. We did two jeep rides to fill time in they were great. Without them it would have been terrible. We don't like shopping all day. Sedona is a very nice place but we needed more planning on what was available in the town other than looking at the shops. You need an information sheet on walks and tours.
