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!

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.

Came across Marvelous Marv while searching the Grand Canyon. If you are limited to one day and want an informative, fun, and relaxing view of this beautiful site, please check into a tour with Marvelous Marv. He was fun to be with all day and you have unlimited questions you can ask and he will have the answers! He was... More

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!
