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.
