Loved this tour! The mini bus we were picked up in was comfortable and on the drive up, our tour guide Christine was super knowledgeable about the area. The Grand Canyon is clearly amazing, the lunch at El Tovar was really good (dessert too!) and we stopped at many lookout points for pics.

This was a great day. Exactly as described. Great guide well cared for and planned day.
We enjoyed our day trip to the Grand Canyon and our tour guide Joe was very informative throughout the whole trip about the history, culture, people, and geology of the area. His exerpertise was evident and also his enthusiasm for the area. The Grand Canyon views were excellent and we appreciated that we stopped at a few places at the Grand Canyon for different views of it. Highly recommend the helicopter ride through the canyon. Great views and a smooth ride. Lunch at the El Tovar was OK we didn't have a table with a view so we felt paying the extra money to eat there was not necessary. It was almost a 12-hour day, but a fun one!
The trip was all worth it. We were picked up at our hotel at exactly the time we were told. Our guide, Kristen, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We saw the IMAX movie which was very good and ate in the cafeteria which had good food. Kristen gave us plenty of time at each stop to take photos and pointed out features and told us the best places to take photos. All in all a very good experience and highly recommended for first timers to the Grand Canyon.
We had a wonderful day with Kristin as our driver/guide. She was so knowledgeable and easy to be with! The tour stops at the Grand Canyon were wonderful and the views unbelievable. I enjoyed the I-Max while my husband enjoyed the helicopter tour, which worked out great!

This tour is great for anyone with limited time, Lynne, Great Western Tours, has deep pockets of knowledge, Age is no barrier to taking this tour. Cannot ask for a more enjoyable adventure.
Having our guide pick us up in Sedona and take us to Grand Canyon was worth the price. He took us to several vantage points, lunch and we stopped off to shop at the Navajo reservation before we headed back to Sedona. It was a great memory making day! It was a beautiful day.
Lynne was knowledgable and fun, mixing know-how and humor. She went out of her way to make sure we had the best possible excursion. We ate at El Tovar Restaurant, a truly splendid culinary and visual experience at the canyon ledge. High praise all around.
Had a great time! The whole trip was very well organized considering needs of people traveling. I strongly recommend if you have just one day and want to see as much as possible of the Grand Canyon.
Our tour guide was Lynn and she was fantastic! She had so much knowledge and was so personable and fun to listen to. Her stories at the different stops, etc was amazing - as was the scenery. We had a wonderful tour and trip to Sedona.
Wow! We had the most amazing day. Our tour guide Dave was wonderful and made the tour even better. Everything went smoothly and even with the hot temperatures Dave provided cold water and snacks all day. We highly recommend the helicopter tour! Thank you for a day we will never forget.
Great trip to the Grand Canyon. Kristen was wonderful, very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had so much fun and learned so much about the GC. Highly recommend the tour.
Our tour guide was KRISTIN and she did a FABULOUS job!! She took pictures of everyones group at all the stops and that was soo important to us! She was fun and exciting and funny!! The trip/tour was amazing! She picked us up from our Sky Ranch Lodge Hotel and we were able to see all the beautiful sights from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. We took the helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon and got a 8 X 10 picture after we were finished w/ the awesome experience that we will never forget!! Our lunch at the El Tovar lodge was wonderful w/ an incredible view over-looking the canyon and the food was soo very tasty!! Desserts were fabulous!! After our tour was complete, we had an awesome sunset ride back into the Sedona area and were able to see the sunsetting on all those beautiful Red Rocks. It was an incredible full-day experience w/ Kristin from Great West tours. She was awesome!! Cindy, Katie and Emily Prescott from Savannah, Ga.
the tour guide was very knowledgeable and you didn't get sick of him talking.

Great West Tours trip from Sedona was outstanding for our tour on March 22, 2016 but I recommend future users deal directly with Great West google them to take advantage of their direct discount deals the owner Bob answers the phone himself and was very accommodating. David our tour guide and driver was very personable and had great knowledge of the area, the history and his dual college degrees made him exceptional for facts and myths. He made sure we had plenty of water and snacks for the day and ensured we knew when our next stop for rest rooms and purchases would take place. Although the approximately 16 seat bus was not sedan comfortable we weren't on dirt roads and David made sure our temperature needs were met. Of course the scenery, especially the canyon itself were spectacular. The stop at the IMAX theater for the movie about the history of the Canyon was very educational and fun. As I added up the amount it would have cost for individual items included in the tour cost IMAX, gas, admission fee to the park, Great West gift post cards of paintings of the canyon, and a full meal at the cafeteria style restaurant the price was reasonable. Watching visitors who drove themselves to the park try to find a parking spot at the various locations proved to me that the tour was the way to go.
Great trip. The scenery was beautiful. I appreciated the science and history information given by the guide. I would definitely do it again.
This tour was the best tour we have ever taken. It was totally worth the money. Our guide Lynn was exceptional. Pickup and drop off times from our hotel were exactly what we were told they would be. I highly recommend this tour to anyone!
The tour was very informative through the whole trip. Our driver was very courteous and knowledgeable. A very pleasant experience to let someone else do the driving to the Grand Canyon?
Great Tour! Our driver was so knowledgeable! Lunch was very good.
What a breathtaking and great experience. Allen, our Tour Guide, was so professional, knowledgeable, fun and made the experience even more exciting. I definitely though the tour was well worth the time and money.
What an awesome day. The tour company was a local operator. Our tour guide Joe was very informative. His knowledge of the area, geology, history and spot to see was great. He had a good sense of humor and made the trip special for all of us.
I have already reviewed this trip. I spent a half hour writing the review. Then when I went to submit the review, a very positive and detailed review, the screen went to a log on screen and all my review was gone. I figured I had spent enough time trying to detail our wonderful day, from 7am until 7pm, with our very knowledgeable tour guide, Lynn Sine. She really knew where the best views and areas of the entire tour could give our group of 10 the best of everything.
This was a great tour -- the guide, Lynn, couldn't have been nicer and was very accommodating of our group's needs. We had a beautiful day at the Grand Canyon South Rim...and a wonderful lunch at El Tovar! I would highly recommend it!
