It was great. Our guide, Frank Zelle was truly excellent, and it was obvious that he enjoyed Grand Canyon and the sights as much as we did. His enthusiasm was infectious. He pointed out interesting sights on the drive up, and on the drive back also. The drive down to Sedona was truly awesome, and Sedona was excellent.
