Our trip to the Grand Canyon was the highlight of our trip to Sedona. It was supposed to be a rainy day but the weather was perfect. Sam, our guide was very informative, friendly, and genuine. You could just sense his passion for the parklands and the canyon. We walked the South Rim and was then transported to a beautiful... More

While we had a good time on the trip, there were a couple of problems that should have been anticipated and avoided. For example, they scheduled us to visit the Pima air and space museum without realizing that we needed to make reservations in advance for the "boneyard" which was the reason we wanted to go; as a result, we...

Our tour of the Grand Canyon was all we had hoped for. Rob was our guide and he was great. Very personable and knowledgeable. He soon seemed like an old friend. The weather was fabulous...such a beautiful day. The one complaint I had was that Rob's driving was somewhat scary to our whole group. But we are alive, so....

I want to thank Bruce for a wonderful day at the Canyon! As a single woman traveling alone, I was a bit reluctant to join a group, but Bruce was always certain I was comfortable throughout the day. His knowledge of the area and the rock formation was endless. And let’s not forget the wonderful lunch prepared for us. He... More
