This tour is a must do!!!! Our tour guide was funny and so knowledgeable. He was prompt and answered any and all questions. Matt, our tour guide, was also extremely personable which made the day that much more fun. He took us to the very best spots of the canyon and dinner was delicious! We will absolutely book again with this company when we are back in arizona!

Our guide Ty was fantastic: super experienced, knowledgeable, kind, and clear in all communications. The train was fun. A highlight was spotting some wild horses in full gallop. Then Ty took us to multiple viewing spots along the GC rim, let us look through his telescope, and told us lots of interesting stuff. We loved it. Thank you, Ty!

It was amazing! The tour guide Matt was amazing and so helpful during the trip. Not only that but the Navajo Viviana was so kind to show us her land in the Grand Canyon. They helped us see the most scenic areas in the Canyon. I was able to see horseshoe bend, Den Canyon Dam and ate at Gone West. I would definitely come back.

The bus was small with just 7 people which I liked. The tour guide was very nice and informative. We saw so much more than we would have on our own and learned quite a lot about the Canyon and surrounding area.

Beautiful scenery and lots of short breaks made it easier on my knees
