We were picked up in an Escalade by Michael at 8 am at our Sedona hotel. From the moment we got into the car, Michael told stories and shared history for every site we visited. There is no better way to see the Grand Canyon. Michael let us choose some sites and was always mindful of the times and crowds. As he told us the history of each place we visited, I noticed other people were listening as well. How he remembered all that information, I'll never know. He took tons of photos of us and was always patient and kind. The tour lasted 9 hours and ended overlooking the sunset in Sedona--not even part of the tour but a little special treat added by Michael. I highly recommend this tour-it is worth every penny!
