We had the best tour we could have wished for. Dwayne was a very entertaining and knowledgable guide.

The tour bus (I use this term lightly since it's hardly your usual bus) is super comfy, really luxurious with reclining, heated seats, airconditioning, cooler, and a dvd player, which we watched movies about the Grand Canyon on. It's like travelling to the Grand Canyon in your living room.

Dwayne stopped at the Wildflower bakery to collect sandwiches for lunch, we picked up some coffee there too and then proceeded to drive through Sedona, see the red rocks and then on through Oak Creek Canyon where we stopped to fill up with spring water from the canyon.

We must have had the usual stock of annoying questions about the Grand Canyon, but Dwayne was happy to chat them all through with us as well as giving us a map of the Canyon, explained the history of the park and showed us a bird guide, lent us binoculars and pointed out so many good view points and things to see, it really stopped us feeling overwhelmed by the Grand Canyon. We have really superb photos to prove it!

Thanks for getting us back to Sedona in time for the sunset over the red rocks!
There are other tours you could take from Sedona, but this is in a class of it's own. There's no open jeep tour but this way you won't get rained on, sunburnt or windswept. You'll be really well taken care of and you'll never feel rushed. Best tour ever.

On the advise of a trusted friend who has done a Silver Spur Tour x2 we booked our Sedona to Grand Canyon tour. G.M. was our guide and shared his knowledge and love of the area in a comfortable, easy manner. We never felt hurried although there was clearly an agenda of places to see and things to do. The ride was smooth with glorious soft leather seats that you melt into. Lunches were delicious as were the views from which we dined. The day was perfect in every way! We saw a deer near the side of the road, a pair of Condor flying over the canyon and a herd of elk including a grand buck with an incredible rack. You shouldn't do this trip without the assistance of Silver Spur because you'll miss so much. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

The Silver Spur VIP Grand Canyon tour is the only way to go. Our tour guide Dwayne was knowledgeable, courteous, funny and thoughtful. The van was very comfortable and the lunches were so good we went to Wildflower Bread Co. for breakfast. Don't hesitate about Silver Spur--they're Great!

If you are looking for a comfortable ride to the Grand Canyon, without the hustle and bustle of a crowd this is it. The vans are high quality with a great ride and very comfortable seats. Tour guide G.M. Was knowledgeable about the area and low key. Didn't dominate the ride or conversation. Let the beauty speak for itself. He took us very efficiently to all the key overlooks on the south rim. Sites are crowded and was nice to escape the crush in our comfortable ride. We shared the ride with two other couples. They generally like to just do one group but had a four person minimum so we were glad for the company so we could go. Highly professional, not your run of the mill tour operator. It costs a little more than pink jeep and others but I felt for the smaller group and comfortable ride it was worth it.

The tour was fantastic. We were picked up at our hotel in Sedona by "Crazy Carl". Carl made our trip. This was my first trip to the Grand Canyon and I can't begin to tell you what we would have missed without this tour. Carl knew where to stop and provided a wealth of information. I would definitely use Silver Spur tours again.
