Our guide Kevin made our tour so very worth it. He is very knowledgeable and our group saw things they had never seen before and learned so much. Kevin was always so helpful and I was so amazed how he remembered all our names and made all feel so included and I personally felt it was the best tour I'd been on. Kevin has a wonderful sense of humor and it kept us alert and so interested all the time. I definitely would recommend this tour company.

We were very fortunate to be guided by Brian a highly knowledgable scholar of the indian cultures that existed and continue to exist in the 21st century southwest. While he sounded professorial, he added a lot of wonderful humor and entertainment and mixed the cultural golden nuggets with humor. He is worth more than Coronado's Seven Cities of Gold. One more thing, thank you for sharing your 50's Golden Oldie's your grandmother and you listened to probably in the seventies.We loved them.

Kevin, our tour guide made the trip a great experience. Within a few minutes he knew us all by name and what each of our interests for the trip were. He made sure each person got what they came for whether it was the sites we visited, information about our specific interest, the culture, the influence and rich history of the American Indians, or the animals, plant life, etc...He knew it all. We viewed three sides of the Grand Canyon. Kevin knew how to avoid the crowds the entire day. Also visited a volcanic lava site, an ancient Indian Ruins site, ate lunch at an authentic Indian Restaurant, witnessed a beautiful sun set, and saw many animals including antelope, deer, and more. A great trip.

This is a great tour. Small 16 passenger bus, very knowledgeable drivers/tour guides, and they take you to several places along the rim of the Grand Canyon, some of which most tourists don't know, so you have it pretty much to yourself for viewing and photo ops. And it is an all day tour, not some quicky two hour thing.

There is no way we could have seen, experienced and learned so much without our brilliant tour guide Lynn. She picked us up in Sedona, the tour was full 12 people, but we all saw and learned so much. This was my first trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon, my husband saw it as a child. Even though it wasn't new to him, the information Lynn shared with us all was interesting and well above and beyond anything we would have expected. The tour is a little pricey, but I would do it again without question. This is an exceptional way for a first timer to experience the brilliance of the National Park, the monuments, the wildlife, the canyon, and the surrounding areas.

What a fabulous day!! Sheldon our guide maximized the time by starting us off with a visit to Sunset Crater Volcano to view and walk on the lava trail before heading off to Wupatki Pueblo which was inhabited during the 1100s by a farming community. Super cool!! Sheldon's in depth knowledge of the region and history provided us with a non-stop commentary as we drove through the Navajo reservation and ended up at the Trading post for a hearty lunch whic included Navajo tacos. Onwards to the Grand Canyon where we stopped at 6 views of the Canyon including the watch tower. Finished off by seeing a number of elk by the side of the road and a great explanation of the geology. Highly recommended!!

This Tour is amazing but long. We saw so much and there is no way one can see everything in one day. The guide was terrific and so knowledgeable. This was our second tour here from Sedona with Viator and we will book with them again in the Future.

We have used Viator several times and have never been disappointed with the results. This is a don't miss tour if your are in the area. Our guide, Chris, was wonderful. Not only did he know the history, geological detail, but shared stories and facts that you will only get from someone that has lived iin the area. This tour was great for us - we had our car but wanted to be able to look and enjoy the scenery without worrying about driving. I highly recommend.
This was a memorable day that we will never forget!
