Carl of Silver Spur picked up our family of four in a very comfortable ride / mercedes van last week in Sedona. We picked up two more people on the way up to the Canyon and the six of us with Carl had a great day. Much better than a more crowded tour van with bench seats. Silver spur has nice large windows for viewing. A DVD player and reclining leather captains chairs for passengers with plenty of room for your day bag. We stopped by the Double Eagle trading company on the way up where my son picked up a hand made pocket knife. Carl put in a video about the discovery of the Grand Canyon and gave lots of info on the geological formation of Sedona, the Grand Canyon and cultural history etc which dovetailed nicely with my daughters recent Science unit last spring. The day at the Canyon was relaxed and included a number of stops along the south rim giving us enough time to take in the canyon and get some pictures taken. The lunch provided with sandwiches tasted great. We also had time to pop into El Tovar for a quick Gin & Tonic and soda's. On the way back we stopped at an outdoor bazzar on the Navajo reservation. Great deals and the best pottery you will ever find. Mom and I and kids picked up some nice jewelry and other items. Highly recommended for stress free day touring. After each stop the van was right in front with the AC on. No walking to the parking lot to find your hot car or trying to figure out where to go and what stops to make. Carl knew the place well and was a great guide.
