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.

Daniel was our tour guide and he was very interesting and knowledgable. We had only one day to see the canyon and this is the tour we chose. The helicopter ride was our 1st glimpse of the canyon and it really took all of our breaths away. This is beautiful country and just speaks for itself. But thanks to Daniel, we got all kinds of interesting perspectives on all kinds of different levels, from the wildlife, to geology and history of the area. There were just enough stops to get different perspectives of the canyon. We got beautiful photos. He really made our one day there more than complete. Highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

This tour absolutely exceeded our expectations. I had been to the Grand Canyon via another tour company but my this was my husbands first time. While viewing the Canyon never gets old as it is ever changing, I feel like I had never seen the Canyon before thanks to our incredible tour guide at Great Western Tours, Daniel. His knowledge and passion for the Canyon really enhanced the trip. We saw so many different views of the Canyon. I can't say enough. We included the IMAX and lunch at El Tovar which we also recommend. If you are looking to tour the Grand Canyon stop searching and book this tour and hopefully it will be with Daniel.

This tour was awesome! Great tour guide.
We did the train ride add on and wish we did not. If we did again, I would skip train and do film and lunch.

We had such a fun and exciting day on this tour! Our Guide Dave was so full of knowledge, enthusiasm and love of the area. He was fun and kept us engaged along the way. Once at the Canyon we saw such fantastic sights. We ate at El Tovar and it too was a beautiful place with great food. Thank you for an amazing and unforgettable day!
