Absolutely the best way to see the Canyon for first-timers or those who prefer not to make the drive. Our driver, Marcia was most informative and engaging. Loved looking at the beautiful sights along the route, instead of the road! Small group made for nice interaction and delicious lunch was served at the end of the hiking trail. Would highly... More

Our trip with Touch the Southwest was interesting and informative. We were unfortunate in that we booked our tour on a day when it snowed in Flagstaff and at the Grand Canyon so our view was limited. We did however have 3 guides with us and that made the day even more interesting. Bruce was one of the guides and... More

My experience with Touch the Southwest was wonderful from start to finish. Making initial arrangements for our Grand Canyon tour with Brenda couldn't have been easier. She was a joy to speak with, and had great suggestions for our time in Flagstaff. Our tour guide for the day, Marcia, was both incredibly knowledgeable and personable. My family learned so much...

I recently visited Arizona and my friend and I had an arranged tour for the two of us from Sedona with Touch the Southwest tour. We were contacted the night before and given information to make the tour successful and we were picked up the next morning by our guide Sam Hagler. We were so fortunate to have him. He... More

My brother, sister-in-law and I will never forget our recent Grand Canyon Tour. Your company provided comfortable transportation and courteous service along our scenic, though slightly unsettling drive. Our guide knew the area well and enlightened us with passion and awe from the time we were picked up until we returned to Sedona. The Canyon itself was a magnificent sight,... More

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...
