Our tour to the Grand Canyon with Wayne Parker was incredible! He is the best tour guide we've ever had! He is a knowledgeable, energetic, and experienced guide. He navigated some narrow, twisty, climbing roads with skill while providing interesting commentary and caring for the groups needs and comforts. He is very familiar with the area and knows great spots to eat, to view the sights and to get great photos.
The tour included a scenic drive from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon with an overnight stay. Since it was our first visit to the Grand Canyon, we weren't quite prepared for how dark and cold it gets at night. If you'll be walking around after sunset, bring a flashlight and something warm to put on.
We had a different driver for our ride back to Phoenix. This time we took the freeway no scenic route and it was just a ride without the commentary. The freeways in this area can be a bit nerve-wracking at times, with people following too close for comfort at 75-80 mph. But, we got there without incident.

We would have liked a little more time in Sedona. We had about 40 minutes to walk around, which included a rest room break. And we arrived and left early in the morning, before the shops were open not that we would have had time to shop. We realize the main point of the trip was the Grand Canyon, and that was great, which is why we rated it highly. However, since there is a stop in Sedona, it would have been nice to actually feel we had seen a bit of Sedona. There is a great variation in the tour guides, and it is the luck of the draw. The driver/guide we had from Phoenix to Sedona was great--lots of info, very personable. The driver/guide we had to the Canyon was a bit of a character, who told us lots of stories about himself and his life, name-dropping lots of people, but not quite giving us the info we were expecting to get about the area. The driver we had all the way back gave too much info, identifying every restaurant as we passed it on the road! The accommodations at the Grand Canyon were comfortable Maswik Lodge. We were lucky to have great, clear weather. They picked us up for the trip back earlier than we were originally told. So you may have slightly less time on that second day than you had planned.

The small mini van was old and very uncomfortable for the trip from Phoenix to Sedona where a newer van was used to the Grand Canyon. The driver/guide was informed and interesting. Upon arrival my friends were informed to their embarrassment, that their generous tip was not sufficient! I was shocked, it bothered me the rest of the trip. The return trip was late one hour and when we entered the only seats available was the back row and very hard for four people in their mid seventies and eighties! However, the Grand Canyon was spectacular.

This tour was great, we could see a lot and it was well organized. staying over night it is a very good idea, it allows experience canyon on your own, see the sunset, sunrise, take a long walk. The only thing what we were not happy about was the ride back home, the driver was crazy and people got really scared inside the bus.

The overnight tour of the Grand Canyon out of Phoenix was fantastic. Including transportation to the Grand Canyon with a stop in Sedona, one night's lodging at the Maswik Lodge, a tour of awesome views along the canyon rim, and transportation back, it was also a great value. The tour ran smoothly. Our guides, Manny, JR, and Ray, all provided personalized, warm, friendly, and informative guiding. I found them all to be caring and concerned as well as entertaining. Lodging at Maswik was simple but clean and adequate, and the lodge provided a good cafe with many choices, as well as help in setting up other activities. Everything worked together to provide a troublefree and seamless experience, and I felt that I had time to really see and absorb the wondrous Canyon. I'm so glad that I had my first experience of this awesome natural wonder with this tour, run by Ma and Pa Tours. Excellent experience.

Really enjoyed the trip. Stayed in a great hotel in Grand Canyon. Would have liked more time in Sedona and less at the trading outlet. The tour guides were informative and helpful but one guide was way too pushy about tipping. Suggesting the amount per person and putting up a sign. Tips are optional and should be what a person can afford, for some people the cost of the tour is expensive enough. Please combine the tip in the tour price. Would have liked more information and contact from the tour company. We contacted them to confirm pick up but were never given any information regarding where we would be lodging or pick up time.

We would recommend staying over night at the Grand Canyon, this enabled us to view and tour more of the Grand Canyon at our leisure. The accommodations were very nice. Our driver/guide was very nice and informative.

Surpassed our expectations. The drive from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon was wonderful. Great guide. Loved the stop at the Navajo reservation where we stopped to eat the lunch that we bought in a lovely restaurant/bakery in Sedona. Overnight accommodations at the Canyon were terrific. We able to watch elk out the window of our room. Highly recommend this tour.

The trip was fantastic. We got the information we needed on time. I had some questions about accommodation that were responded in a very informative and accurate way. The guides were excellent. The hotel at the Grand Canyon was very good. Everything went well. The only exception was the transportation on the way back to Phoenix. It was a small mini bus the passengers that had booked for the day had taken the best seats. We were uncomfortably seated. This lasted for half of the trip. Fortunately we changed vehicle at midway. Apart from this everything went really well. Thanks.
