Excellent tour. David our guide was great. We had considered driving there, however, now realized what a mistake that would have been. Limited parking and David knew just where to take us to get the best views.

The train ride was superb. We enjoyed the entertainment and scenic ride. We felt we were taken back in time with the scenery and imagined wagon trails and horse drawn carriages along the way.
Kristin our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge. She provided plenty of time at each stop to take in the views and take pictures. We saw several elk and deer.
We tag this trip as 'modern day wild west'.

This was a long but fabulous day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the train ride. The canyon is unbelievable. However, with this trip there isn't much time to explore the canyon on your own.

We loved our tour guide but felt like we did not get to see much of the park. It took five hours to get to the gates even though it is only a two hour drive. We also only got to see four view points which is not a lot for a twelve hour tour. We expected more time in the park but it is worths doing.

Most amazing day of touring the Grand Canyon. We had a great tour guide that was very upbeat as well as giving us in depth information about the Grand Canyon and the entire area around it. We had plenty of time for pictures and our lunch was more than generous.

We had an amazing tour of the Grand Canyon with David last Monday. If we could hand pick a tour guide it would be David. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. Without this tour we would not have seen all the best sights in the Grand Canyon.
Loved the small group and hotel pick up. Frequent rest stops was a nice added touch.
I recommend the IMAX movie and El Tovar lunch, both were amazing. Well worth the money.

Great west tour driver seemed to drive so fast and one should know if they sit to the back of the vehicle that it will be a relatively rough drive. I had quite a headache when i got home. He also talked so fast and continuous that it wore me out. As far as the actual places the south rim was great. We also saw the IMAX 'movie'. It is put on by National Geographic so does have some nudity is showing the natives in the area. Otherwise it is very good. El TOvar was nice place to eat and felt so waited upon!
