So, there's SEEING the Grand Canyon, which I did 20 years ago. Then there's EXPERIENCING the Grand Canyon, which we did on this tour. Because just driving up and looking at it is not the same as gaining some depth of understanding about how it's vastness and how it came to be about the geology, cultures and history that have shaped it. And THAT, as they say, made all the difference. Our guide, Drew, is a geologist, Canyon hiker/camper, and passionate about the history that comes with it. He took us to several locations to get a sample of both the natural and human architecture, with stories and factoids that both humanized and amazed this natural wonder. Recommendations? 1. Ask for Drew! 2. Bring binoculars 3. Be prepared for wind and rapidly changing weather. For those less hardy? No worries: hubby took a nap in the van! No strenuous activity required. Participate as much or as little as you are comfortable. Snacks, lunch, plenty of water and soft-drinks. And for those more adventurous? Go here first to understand the unique challenges, and best strategies, available at this astonishing geologic and cultural icon. Worth your time AND your money!
Scott was our tour guide and there was only 4 of us on the tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. His knowledge of geology and the local history were only surpassed by his ability to not only tell you the story of the area and the people that inhabited it. It was so compelling it made you feel like you were witnessing it first hand.
There was a great lunch that was provided and waters, soda and snacks on hand at all times. The colors of the Grand Canyon are spectacular and Scott brought his telescope for us to get close up views of the canyon. Thank you so much Scott!
Amazing experience! This tour, as promised, was small, got picked up from our hotel, and our guide Maggie was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, and we enjoyed this tour mainly because she made the trip so enjoyable!
This was the best decision. Brandon was the best. We learned so much and had the best time. This was better than the ratings. I was so happy with our choice.
I could not be happier with my choice. We had the best time.
Trip was excellent. Matt, the tour guide, was superb.
Matt was absolutely awesome. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone with children who would like to learn about the Grand Canyon and the history of the surrounding area.
Outstanding! Pick up at the hotel was right on time. We quickly merged with others picked up by a different van and were off to the canyon as planned. The van was new, clean, and comfortable. Matt was a great tour guide, and using the headset in the van made it very easy to hear him, and the wealth of information he shared. We have plenty of stops at the canyon, with the ability to hand with Matt or wander off on our own. Lunch was great, including snacks and beverages.
Excellent guide to stunning scenary.
Exceeded expectation. Marcia was a knowledgeable guide. Loads of fun facts and great stops during the day.
The tour was fantastic. Matt Webster our guide, was informative throughout the tour. His knowledge of geology and history was amazing. We travel throughout, Matt was one of the best guides ever. Highly recommend the tour. We were educated and entertained every moment of the trip. The best way to learn and experience Grand Canyon.
