I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona. I only do small groups and it's a full day. I've been doing these tours for over 20 years and have lived here all my life. No one knows more of this fantastic place than me, so give me a try!

Marv is a wonderful tour guide. He picked us up at the visitor's center in Williams and as soon as we got in the van, he was describing the area around as, including what trees are in the area, animals, etc... During the entire ride to the canyon, Marv told us many geological facts and informed us about the various... More

Magnificent Maggie was our guide and she was excellent. My wife and I had booked this tour months ago and had been looking forward it very much. We were not disappointed and would recommend this tour to any visitor to the Grand Canyon who wants to maximise the experience and understanding. An awesome place and an awesome experience. Thanks Maggie!

This was the best $125 per person- I've spent on this whole vacation! Marv was the most thoughtful tour guide I could have asked for. He designed our whole day around my husband who is diabetic and not able to walk far distances. He made sure we drank water and gave us plenty of time to sit and talk to... More

We had a great time on our tour with marvelous marv. He was extremely knowledgeable about all things Grand Canyon and was able to show us around and hit all the highlights. There is so much we would have missed if not for him. He was very patient with our kids (11 and 9) and answered questions all day long.... More

We booked this tour with Marv a while before we got to Williams, AZ and were entirely surprised to be the only ones on Marv's tour this date--PRIVATE TOUR! I know I was entirely grateful because my husband is a tad socially inept when it comes to being around too many people--oh and I speak my mind! We were picked... More

It is a bit of an uphill battle to experience the Grand Canyon. Most who try come away with less than they anticipated. The majority come from Vegas on a rented car, or from Williams on a train. Most of them are underestimating many things: 1. the travel time 2. the affect of 7000' altitude 3. the dessication of an... More

We had a fantastic experience with Marvelous Marv and his equally marvelous wife, Maggie. The both of them were prompt in their pick up at the Williams Tourist Center. They friendly and welcoming, humorous and knew their stuff about The Grand Canyon. They gave us many opportunities to take photos, we also stopped for lunch at the cafe and saw... More

I booked a tour with Marvelous Marv because I'd never been to the Grand Canyon. Marv is wonderful. If you've never been there, he is an awesome place to start. He gives you a great tour and wonderful information, including information on what to do if you're going to do more things at the canyon. He's is extremely knowledgeable about... More

The Grand Canyon has been very high on our bucket list, so when we visited, we wanted to make sure we got the out out of time. We've learned the best way to visit some incredible locale, with lots of history or with a gigantic scale, has been to tag along with someone who really knows the territory. Marvelous Mike... More

Marv states: "this is a unique, personalized van tour that is one-of-a-kind." Big words to live up to, and Marv delivers!! From the moment he picks you up at your hotel you are treated to an all-informative day that matches the wonder of the Grand Canyon with the first-hand knowledge of a very personable "guide" who knows all and tells...
