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

We spent the day in the Grand Canyon with Maggie rather than Marv, who was unwell. The day was great. We arrived in Williams a little early and Maggie arrived right on time. A quick tour around Williams and then out to the Canyon. The chatter was very informative and relaxed. Just the way we like it. All our questions... More

Just last week Marv and his wife picked us up at our Williams, AZ motel at 9AM and returned us about 4 PM. We were impressed with their knowledge of the Canyon, the local history and enjoyed the tour. The scenery was awesome! If you want a personal tour you won't be disappointed at all.

Marvellous Marv is a brilliant tour leader for the Grand Canyon. His groups are small, his knowledge is enormous and he helps you see the Grand Canyon in a way that large groups cannot do. If you want to see the Grand Canyon and marvel in awe at this wonderful part of the world, the MARVELLOUS MARV is the man... More

Marvelous Marv is a reasonably priced tour with a delightful local person who was a font of knowledge about the canyon and its history. He will pick you up and take you on a tour of the less-traveled (but just as awesome) Kaibab section of the park. So if you are hiking on another day you should hike the other... More
