From the moment I spoke to Peggy, the Office Manager, I knew we would be in the best hands for our personalized tour!

Worth every penny, this amazing privaye tour began at our 7:30am hotel pickup (hotel reception rang us at 7:20am saying our guide was ready). When we got to Reception, We met Ken, who escorted us to an impeccably clean and comfortable Lincoln Navigator for my daughter’s and my trip up to the Grand Canyon from Sedona/Poco Diablo Resort.

All throughout the drive, Ken imparted his vast knowledge of Arizona history, wildlife and horticulture. Complimentary bottled water and the wonderful lunch at El Tovar resort at the Grand Canyon were included In the tour. We stopped for a welcome stretch and restroom break both ways, and got some souvenirs and postcards :)

At the Grand Canyon, Ken shared how and why each of the vista stops
Made was a special place and added some personal color also about some trips up where a couple were (secretly) engaged, got married, and about some of the hiking trails — although we did not go on as I had a torn tendon and wore an orthopedic boot. Ken took some wonderful photos of us as well as some panoramic shots with us Both in Which are keepers!

I said to him how appreciative I was that we had he benefit of a tour driver so I could really take in all the scenery and enjoy the entire tour, and not come back exhausted from the trip and driving.

It’s an experience we both enjoyed immensely and that’s saying a lot for a teenager also ;-) she was highly impressed about Ken and the entire tour despite her feeling unwell from an oncoming cold.

Thank you, you all are First Class, Indeed and we will highly recommend to anyone who heads your way!

After reviewing several options, my companion & I decided to schedule short 4-hour tour of Sedona, then adapt a wait & see for our remaining two days in Flagstaff area. Marco (owner) and Robert Dakota (guide) picked us up in a nice SUV (Lincoln Navigator) at the time promised and then we headed to Sedona. When booking, I mentioned that we were amateur photographers and very interested in getting some great shots. They did an amazing job delivering us to the best spots. Since we did the afternoon session after a long drive getting to Flagstaff, we were able to get sunset shots over Sedona. Wow! On the ride back to Flagstaff, we decided to book the day-long Grand Canyon tour. Robert was our guide & driver. He was amazing with his knowledge of the region, history & native peoples. Knowing our interest in seeing as much as possible he added the Watupaki national landmark at the beginning of the tour which was something I hadn’t considered to be an option. With only two of us, we were able to move quicker when needed or linger for extra reflection when wanted. Then we went to the Grand Canyon, entering the northern gate of the south rim. We hit all the photographic hot spots. The tour included lunch at the El Tovar but because Robert adjusted to our schedule, when we arrived at the restaurant they had stopped taking names for lunch. (Note: it appears at both the lodges, meal reservations are first come, first serve, so that may be a consideration in your travels.) We ate lunch at the Harvey House Cafe, which was good. Bottled water & snacks were provided on all tours for us.
Then we continued on our adventure, visiting more hot spots on the south rim, before ending the day in the position for sunset shots over the south rim.
The third trio was back south to Sedona where Montezuma’s Castle & Well were the highlights for me.
This was a bucket list trip for me but one thing is certain. If I ever return, First Class Charter & Tours will be my first call.

We travelled October 25th from Sedona to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Richard was our driver and he called the day prior to our trip and we finalized pick up time and other details and he promptly picked us up at our hotel on time in a new and very well maintained Lincoln Navigator. Richard was a great tour host and in addition to being extremely knowledgeable he was very accommodating and we were able to create a bespoke tour of the canyon. As advertised we enjoyed lunch at the El Tovar hotel (included in the cost). I can't say enough good things about this experience including the communications with the office to arrange the trip. Small, exclusive and worth every penny! Thank you Richard and Michael for creating such a wonderful and memorable experience for us. If you want the best, First Class is the way to go.
