We found Touch the Southwest online while looking for Grand Canyon tours. We were thrilled to find out they offered a luxury tour that included picking us up from our hotel in Sedona in an air conditioned van, providing an expert tour guide, Dave (retired geologist), serving a gourmet picnic lunch, and taking us to a Navajo trading post. Everything... More

To Jessica V and all the others who were on her tour, My sincerest apologies to you all for the faulty air conditioning in our vehicle the day of your tour. We try very hard to make sure our vehicles are in tiptop working order, but as I learned years ago: any vehicle, new or old, can break down at... More

To say that Bruce Sawyer and his team provided us with an extraordinary and exhilarating experience at the Grand Canyon would be a gross understatement. Touch the Southwest deserves TEN STARS!!!!

This was recommended by our Concierge after Pink Jeep feel through; PJ wouldn't accept our booking as I had one child under 2 years old. Overall a good overview tour. The guide was well informed and knew his stuff when it came to geology as well as the environment of the area. He was kind and he was a good... More

My husband and I took the Grand Canyon tour because this was our first time visiting the canyon and we wanted more information than what we felt we could get on our own. We definitely were not disappointed, Marcia was extremely well versed on the whole area, starting with a short tour of Flagstaff. It was a beautiful day in... More

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
