We had what turned out to be a private tour (just the two of us and Marv) of the Grand Canyon. He tailored the tour just for us, taking into account what we had already seen and what our interests were. Marv has a great knowledge of the Canyon, and just as important, a great love of it. We had... More

We went on a tour with Marv. It was great he had all of the facts and answered all of our questions. But he also gave us a feel for the area. The Grand Canyon was breath taking. It was my first time seeing it. I fell in love with the town of Williams the gateway to the Grand Canyon... More

On our honeymoon/USA adventures, the Grand Canyon was on our list of must do. We were discouraged by some to stay in Williams, Az based on limited availability and few accommodations. Most who stay in Williams are there to take the 2 1/2 hr long ride to the canyon. Ignoring their advice, we pulled off the interstate into a serene... More

Spent the day with Marv on a splendid tour of the Grand Canyon! He picked us up at our hotel in Williams and off we went to see the wonder of the Canyon. We visited sights that were free of lots of other tourists and he shared insights and stories about the canyon that kept us all (ages 9 through... More

Marvin was very friendly, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. He took us to the best scenic points and away from the crowds. We could not have asked for a better guide. I highly recommend Marvelous Marv.

My husband and I went on a tour with Marvellous Marv and it was amazing and highly recommend him as a superb tour guide. We were staying at the El Tovar Hotel on the South Rim and we got picked up in the morning right on time. Marv's van was very comfortable and air conditioned and we were on a... More

We highly recommend Marvelous Marv and his Grand Canyon Tour. We made arrangements with him to pick us up at our hotel in Williams and he showed up, on time, in a comfortable van and we were on our way. Being a local guy, he had lots of information on Williams and the Canyon and he was a great guide.... More

I can highly recommend this way of experiencing the Canyon. Very personal, tailored to your desires and very knowledgeable. If you want a real, authentic tour from a local person rather than a typical tourist experience then this is definitely the way to go. Really enjoyed it.

What a fabulous day we all had with Marvellous Maggie (Marv's wife). She was very knowledgable, friendly and accommodating and made sure we saw all the best sights whilst dodging the crowds. The vehicle was new and very comfortable and Maggie planned the trip perfectly. We would highly recommend seeing the wonders of the Grand Canyon with this company.

Visited in Jan, weather phenomenal. Normally should have been snow but warm this year which made our visit nice. We drove from Vegas - 4 hours to Williams. Absolutely worth the drive. Pay attention : TIME CHANGE between Nevada and Arizona. We were an hour late for pick up due to that we didn't pay attention and Marv was great,... More
