Description: I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona...
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!

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

Marv's tour is educational, enlightening and entertaining. He was prompt, reliable and responded to every telephone call and e-mail. The tour consisted of my wife and I but that did not take away from the professionalism that Marv displayed Marv met us at the Williams Visitor Center at 9:00AM and during the 30 mile + drive to the Grand Canyon...

I texted and called Mr Marv prior to arriving here in Arizona to book a tour with him since I have been reading good things. A day before the tour, I confirmed that we will be arriving at the hotel. The day came and we waited at the lobby of the hotel before 9 am. Ten minutes after 9 ,... More

My wife took Marv's tour a few years ago with our daughter and insisted we go back so I could experience the Grand Canyon like they did. All I can say is this was a great way to do it. First of all, I recommend that you not drive. The traffic can get backed up and parking can be a... More

Our family of seven (children aged 19, 17, 14, 11 & 10 months) spent the day touring the canyon with Marv. I contacted Marv in Feb. about a July tour. He put us on the schedule without a deposit which made me a bit nervous. Marv answered questions via text and email within hours and verified our trip several weeks... More

Our Florida family used my inheritance from my Grandma for a last-blast family trip. My husband has Huntington's Disease, and he chose the Grand Canyon to visit and explore before he gets too bad off. We booked Marvelous Marv's tour 8 months in advance, and used his services on June 2, 2015 for a personal tour. He met us in... More

Marv's tour was a highlight of our trip. Marv is professional, timely, has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Grand Canyon and kept us moving without rushing to see as much of the South Rim park as possible in one day. Excellent experience, highly recommended.

The locals recommended Marvelous Marv's to us and we are SO glad they did.... We had done the train the day before and it was fun, but Marv took us to places we would never have found. He grew up here so he knows "The Park" like nobody else. Besides all that, he is a pleasure to be around. Call... More
