Absolutely amazing The Dam was closed due to weather. But the Grand Canyon was breathtaking. Claudio was friendly, professional, kind and has a very good heart. He drove us to one spot and picked us up at the end of the hike. He met us after on the hike and was very knowledgeable. He was prepared. Would definitely recommend him.

Nate was fantastic! Very personable, funny, knowledgeable and a great tour guide/driver! He made a long trip really fun! Well worth the time and money to experience this tour! #DamSmithFamilyVacation
