This was a great tour -- the guide, Lynn, couldn't have been nicer and was very accommodating of our group's needs. We had a beautiful day at the Grand Canyon South Rim...and a wonderful lunch at El Tovar! I would highly recommend it!
Our tour was actually thru Great West tours. They showed up, on time, exactly as promised. It is a long day but well worth it. Although we had a car and could have driven from Sedona to the Grand Canyon, I was thrilled that we chose to do the tour. There is no way you can see all the sights while driving and trying to navigate where you're going. The Grand Canyon was superb, as expected. What made the day extra special was our guide Lynn. Her knowledge was amazing and her love of the area and the Grand Canyon in particular was infectious. It was a wonderful day!!
Well done! Comfortable, constant information input and change of attention. Optional flight over the Grand Canyon worth every penny and moment of trepidation. We'd recommend it to anyone wanting the most exposure to Northern Arizona, the Grand Canyon, and the Navajo reservation in one day.
Our tour guy Joe was great. He has such a in depth knowledge of the history of Sedona and the Grand Canyon that makes is so much more interesting to see and learn. Thank Joe
