When I booked this tour, I thought we were going to Grand Canyon and Antelope canyon from Las Vegas. However, Ian from Max Tour, took us to another whole level. This tour also included tour of Hoover Dam, Arizona Route 66, Horseshoe Bend, and Lake Powell, which I didn't expect it. With that being said, the itinerary covered all my bucket list items which was super awesome. Ian is an excellent tour guy; he's very knowledgeable with all the destinations and their history. He's also a great photographer; he would point out spots for photo ops. We enjoyed the tour greatly. I highly recommend the tour for people who don't have time to take a long vacation. This is a great tour for a long weekend trip.

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
