Great Tour, great guide. Marsha picked us up in Sedona in a 12 seat air conditioned bus. We stopped at three different spots on the south rim, including the South Rim visitors center. She included a good souvenir stop (where the prices were reasonable and the art was fairly authentic). Lots of water provided, plenty of attention to bathroom stops... More

This was a great tour if you have limited time and if you've never been to the Grand Canyon. Marcia picked us up right in front of our resort in Sedona. She was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The Grand Canyon is truly worthy of the (overused) adjective awesome and it's value is doubly enhanced by an informative tour guide.
