I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams...

I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona. I only do small groups and it's a full day. I've been doing these tours for over 20 years and have lived here all my life. No one knows more of this fantastic place than me, so give me a try!

When my husband and I visited the Grand Canyon for the first time, I really wanted some type of tour to show us the highlights as well as give us personal, factual information about the Grand Canyon. I am so pleased that I found Marv! I truly cannot use enough superlatives to describe our experience with this fabulous geologist, historian,... More

We joined Marv just before 9am outside the Railway Hotel, Williams. It was just the two of us and Marv on this trip and the drive to the Park was made most enjoyable by Marv’s friendly manner and knowledgeable information about the area we were passing through and the history of the Grand Canyon, especially the South Rim. Once in... More

We had three days at the Grand Canyon, and the first was spent with Marv. It took all day, and what he couldn't actually show us, he made us aware of. But more than just pointing out the sights, he made it fun by virtue of his personality. We were able to maximize the rest of the visit by going... More

We had one day in the park and Marv helped us to maximize our experience. We got lots of good stories, history, stops at good lookouts, fun lunch stop and a yum ice cream cone in a secret spot. Plus a private chauffeur. We thoroughly enjoyed. Leave the hassles to Marv and enjoy the ride!

We were in the park and being guided to the best viewing sites , encouraged to take pictures , Marv even took several pictures of us "to prove we were here to the family and friends." Marv is very knowledgeable... More

Marv collected my husband and I for a day tour of Grand Canyon yesterday and it was a brilliant way to see the Grand Canyon. From his brand new Chrysler van we had the benefit of being driven to places where there were less crowds but the best thing about the trip was Marv himself. Knowledgeable about geology, botany, history... More

Met Marv in Williams to begin the tour. From the start we knew we had the right guy. Professional in every way. He knew all the right spots to take us to to beat the crowds. Comfortable ride to and from the park. Marv knew all there was to know about the canyon....Marv is like touring with a friend.

With only one day and having never seen the canyon, we wanted to see and know as much as possible in our visit. Marv was wonderful! He promptly responded to our questions and was right on time for tour day. He is knowledgable and gives you a view of not only the canyon but the entire area from Williams to... More

We booked Marv via the internet not really knowing what to expect. He arrived on time, 9am, in a very good people carrier. He picked up another couple and off we went. It was clear that he was very knowledgeable and passionate of the Grand Canyon. As a result we had a fantastic day. He took lots of pictures of... More
