This was my wife and myself first visit to the Grand Canyon. It is an amazing spectacle hard to take in the size of the canyon and the time it took to create it.

We made up the whole small group so it was like a private tour. Scott, our guide, was awesome sharing his wealth of knowledge about the history and geology of the park and really the whole Flagstaff area. He was both engaging and offered us time to explore parts of the park on our own. We hiked along the rim, near the village, on a paved path for about a mile or so and got to explore the watch tower on our own too. We brought binoculars and cameras with zoom lenses along with us, and Scott set up his spotting scope for us to view the more detailed and distant sites.

This was well worth the cost and much more informative than trying to visit the Grand Canyon on you own. Great experience!!!

This was an excellent way to see the Grand Canyon. Our guide was a fountain of knowledge and from the word go,for about 9 hours gave us a running commentary, not just about the Grand Canyon but the surrounding area. She Jenn also provided us with a very wholesome lunch. Jenn was not only very knowledgeable, she also had a great sense of humor and made the whole experience enriching and fun. Her use of the telescope at intervals was an additional neat touch that rounded off our experience. This is a great way of seeing the Grand Canyon if your time in the Canyon is limited. If you are lucky you will get Jenn as your tour guide.

This is the perfect way to see the Grand Canyon-in a small group, with a knowledgeable tour guide like Marcia Burns! The large 10 person van was not crowed-we had room for snacks and drinks. We got to the Canyon early enough to feel like we could easily access the east entry. It was a great orientation. After another couple of stops and lots of photos, we stopped for a delicious picnic lunch-then on to the Main entrance which included the Native American Museum and the El Tavor Hotel. A secret about the Hotel is that it has neat rockers on the front porch and a great bar! Book this trip and try to over look the other tourists.

Gavin was our tour guide and he was amazing! He has a great personality, was very warm and friendly and was extremely knowledgeable. He picked us up at the exact time he said he would and from the first greeting we knew we were in good hands. Our trip was fantastic and the only negative of the day were the 50 mi/hr wind gusts in the afternoon. The scenery throughout the trip was incredible. We stopped at several different locations and had plenty of time to take in the beauty and to take pictures. Gavin gave us so much information about the geology, the animals, everything. I would highly recommend this trip!

We had thought of going to Grand Canyon on the train but from what we have heard and experienced I am very glad we didn't but very pleased we chose Geand Canyon adventures.

Thank you MATT

Wow, wow, and wow!

The Grand Canyon alone is an amazing thing to experience, but couple it with this tour and it is over the top! Our guide Matt is a wealth of information and made this the best tour I have ever done and I've done a bunch in and out of the U.S. and would highly recommend you try and get him as your guide. We were picked up at our AirBnB and jumped in a very comfortable, clean and spacious van with the rest of the group and from that moment on, Matt kept us very informed of all things and made it so enjoyable, even my 12 year old didn't want the tour to end! Lunch was fresh and delicious and I can't say enough about this tour and how glad I am I booked it. We would have missed so much if we'd done it on our own!
WELL DONE!!!!!

Gavin was a terrific tour guide. He picked us up exactly on time, was knowledgeable and friendly, kept a pace that was comfortable for all age groups and made the entire trip fun. I chose viator because we've used the company in Italy and loved the size of the groups and the excellent tour guides. This trip was no exception. Highly recommended

The tour that we booked with Grand Canyon Adventures was nothing less than EXCELLENT. As it turned out, our small group tour ended up being my wife and myself. To say the least, the entire tour was completely personalized. We were given the unusual opportunity to not only see the sites advertised, but others also on the way to and from The Grand Canyon. Our tour guide Gavin was right on time in picking us up at our Flagstaff hotel. The vehicle was perfect and comfortable. travel refreshments, plenty of drinks and snacks were also offered throughout our tour. At every stop in our tour, our tour guide - Gavin - was very knowledgeable and informative with each site we stopped. We never felt rushed, and my wife and I both felt that the canyon was well presented to us. Gavin even took the time to set up a telescope in two different areas to give us better visuals of those particular areas he was presenting to us. Gavin arranged for us to have lunch at the famous El Tovar Hotel. We were also given very adequate, unrushed shopping time at two different areas. Not to be redundant in our travel to and from The Grand Canyon, two different travel routes were taken which made our entire tour feel fresh. Gavin also took the time to make suggestions of other places near to the Flagstaff area to visit while we were in the area. As you can probably tell, my wife and I really did enjoy our full day of touring. We both most definitely highly recommend the Grand Canyon Adventures small group tour out of Flagstaff, Arizona.

This tour was a great investment! Highly recommended if you want to get the most out of your first grand canyon experience. We only had 3 people in our group plus our tour guide. It was great! Our tour guide, Drew, was very knowledgeable and made the day fun and enjoyable. Book this tour!

Very worthwhile! Tourguide Molly was a wealth of information. We could get so much more from our experience due to her vast knowledge of everything related to the canyon. She had a telescope which helped us to see details and get a perspective of the size of the canyon. We also had an elegant lunch complete with glass plates and cloth napkins! I highly recommend!

I and #39;m so glad I booked this tour to the Grand Canyon. The reviews I read were right. Our tour guide was fun and so knowledgeable. If I had done this myself, I wouldn and #39;t have known where to go. We stopped in several places with great views and had a delicious lunch. Book this tour. You and #39;ll love it!

This trip was great and everything we hoped for. Our guide Jennifer was awesome. She is very knowledgeable and gave use a ton of useful information. I had injured an ankle a few days prior to our tour and she was extremely understanding and accommodated my issues. The lunch was very good and considering the cool weather she found a spot out of the wind and no people around. Our fellow passengers were a lot of fun and very nice people. The Grand Canyon itself is beyond belief and this tour will give you what you need to do and see without the parking hassles etc. Thanks again Jen! Larry and Sandy Frank

This was a great tour! The weather was perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable and even provided a telescope for incredible close up views in the canyon. We sat back, enjoyed the ride and the delicious picnic lunch provided. We had plenty of time at each stop to enjoy the views. Highly recommend!

I had read comments on Matt as a tour guide and hope we would get him. He is a great guide and we loved getting to see the bottom of the canyon with his spotting scope. This was our second tour of the grand canyon and really love that we don't have to worry about traffic or parking. The guides have so much fun and educational facts to share. We learn something new each time we take out of town friends with us.

The small group tour of the Grand Canyon was fantastic! We had just gone to Sedona by ourselves the day before and were frustrated by the many cars and crowds. On this trip our leader, Drew, scheduled it in such a way that we missed the crowds and saw parts that we would not have seen on our own. Even the delicious lunch was enjoyed on a secret location all by ourselves in full view of the grandeur of the canyon. On the way there and back Drew gave us a comprehensive history of not only the canyon but the area around it as well. It didn't hurt that we were taking the van on its maiden voyage.

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!
