Our tour guide, Sheila, was amazing. I would definitely book with this company again. I loved the back roads tour, but my favorite was the amazing pics that Sheila took for us. We had my elderly parents with us and she was so patient with them.

Hands down, amazing! Shiela is knowledgeable, witty, and goes above and beyond to make the trip over the top. Watching elk while tasting juniper berries is a memory our 9 year old will never forget. Ending the trip while watching the sun set over the Canyon is nothing less than magical.

Nathan was an awesome tour guide. He was animated, intelligent and very informative. I was worried about a 3 hour tour holding my 9 years olds attention and it did the entire time. Also, my teenagers barely went on their phones because they were actually listening to what he had to say!!

We had a wonderful tour with Werner, who was highly knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and geology of the Grand Canyon. Saw wild horses, mule deer, elk and a California condor. He also gave suggestions about multiple points of interest that we visited ourselves the next day. A+++ highly recommended!

Had an awesome experience. Did the sunset tour with Wermer as the tour guide. He was extremely knowledge, told great stories and was very funny. At each location, Wermer provided the history and the importance or that location. He also did a good job finding an isolated place that took away from the crowds. Definitely recommend!

Lovely tour of Grand Canyon areas we probably wouldn’t have seen on our own. Ted, our tour guide, was informative and very personable. Hummer was comfortable and small tourist group, congenial. Too cloudy for seeing a nice sunset, but very scenic tour.

Verner was a fabulous guide for our sunset tour of the Grand Canyon. We loved the off road excursion thru the forest, the variety of wildlife, and the beautiful scenic stops before sunset. Would recommend Verner as a guide to anyone - new and repeat visitors. Thank you for making our family trip memorable.
