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

Marv is very knowledgeable on the Grand Canyon and it's history. He picked us up at our hotel in Williams at 9 am and dropped us back off at 4 pm.

This is the second time I took a tour with Marvelous Marv. I wouldn't do it any other way after my first experience. Marv's knowledge of the canyon is endless. You can't ask him a question he can't answer. He met us on time at the Williams visitor center where you can park your car. As soon as the van... More

Not only was this tour one of the best we've been on but Marv traveled 40 miles to pick us up due to our RV needing repair. All along the tour we learned the complete history of the Grand Canyon. With his quick wit and humor we were entertained the whole tour. When you visit the Grand Canyon make Marvelous... More

Marv picked us up at our motel in Williams exactly on time and provided us with a chauffeured and highly informative tour of the South Rim. With over 30 years as a guide, Marv knows where the best vistas are and how to avoid the usual crowds. We learned so much more of the history of the canyon as well... More

Had a reservation with "Marvelous" Marv, confirmed for Grand Canyon Tour. He never showed up, I left him a message when he was 20 minutes late and then left another message when he was more than 30 minutes late. No response, no apology, no phone call or email. Don't count on him showing up!

Marv came highly recommended by the clerk at our hotel so we decided to give it a shot. We are glad we did. It was a great way to see the Grand Canyon. I had been a few times before but I definitely learned much from Marv. Highly recommended!

We met Marv up in Williams, AZ for the drive up to the Grand Canyon. He was prompt, informative and gave us a great tour of the Canyon. He took all the hassle out of parking, navigating, figuring out where the best sight lines were and just delivering us to beautiful areas. He was truly marvelous. Thanks Marv!

My teenage son and I made our first trip to the Grand Canyon a few days ago. I'd heard that the Grand Canyon was one of the few things in life that lives up to the hype and doesn't disappoint. Well, what I'd heard was 100% correct! It was *magnificent* and it's something that everyone should make a point of... More

Marv is knowledgeable and insightful, but mostly just plain fun. We loved seeing the Grand Canyon and hearing the historical tales that Marv spun. The two couples felt at home with Marvelous and could not have enjoyed the Canyon any more. Highly recommended because Marv is Marvelous!
