If you have to do anything, this is the thing you should ABSOLUTELY do AND, most importantly, with this company. Bob at Great West Adventure could NOT have been more accommodating. They have the BEST BEST BEST prices. Our tour guide, DAVE, was out of this world....full of knowledge, worldly, spiritual, funny, polite, and just an all around great individual. You will NOT be disappointed. We did a day tour on 3/25/13 to the Grand Canyon, that included the IMAX and lunch. The best part was we did not have to deal with the traffic, worrying about where to go in or out of the park...plus we learned so much about the area, the GC, the history of Sedona and the GC on the ride to the Grand Canyon and back to our hotel in Sedona. The best money you will spend. Just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be courteous and be on time when they pick you up from your hotel and when they say, "ok, we'll be here about 20 minutes....be back here at the bus at 2:15." BE BACK AT 2:15! It is so impolite to make everyone wait because YOU went way off the beaten path to take another picture, REPEATEDLY. Ok...I'm off my soap box.

We lucked out and had Dave as our tour guide. First, they pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the Grand canyon. What could be better than that? Our guide gave us history of the area on the drive and entertained us the whole drive. We took the early tour that included lunch at the canyon. After seeing the crowds at the grand canyon, I'm glad we didn't try to go there on our own. We saw several different areas/views of the canyon and had a history lesson from our guide. Loved this tour.

We took the Grand Canyon Sunset Tour on March 12, 2013 with Dave Reed. It was fantastic! We traveled from Syracuse, NY to Sedona for a weeklong vacation. Before we booked, we read great reviews about the tour and our guide, Dave, on Tripadvisor. They were right on the money. We traveled comfortably with twelve other vacationers on a small tour bus. We made several short stops along the way, including The Cameron Trading Post. During the trip, Dave entertained us with his knowledge of the area and with his great sense of humor. He offers to take any pictures you like! He is a great photographer and took better photos with our camera than we took ourselves.

After an incredible sunset over the Grand Canyon, we enjoyed an amazing meal at the Arizona Room on the south rim. The dinner included a salad, entree of your choice (priced from $20 to $30 alone) and an amazing dessert selection. The entire price of your meal, non-alcoholic beverages and even the tip are included in the price of the tour. Best meal we had during our vacation! To make things convenient for us, we were picked up and dropped off at our timeshare in Sedona. We also enjoyed the company of the other vacationers on our tour. This tour is worth every penny - a great value! You can't go wrong with Dave Reed,

We did a 12 hour Grand Canyon Tour, while visiting Sedona. Our guide DEVON was very knowledgable but talked non-stop, is was just too overwhelming. Twelve hours of 'past' customers stories who were stupid and other irrelevant stories. Really, was this necessary? Besides that, the tour was good. My husband found that the guide was rude, he made sarcastic comments whenver I asked him questions. I don't care if he was previous with pink jeep tours,that he was divourced or that he trained every guide in Sedona. Just stick to the subject matter, answer the questions, don't super elaborate on every answer and you'll do fine. We were so 'tired' of his talking that we just wanted to get away from him, and didn't even tip him. Its sad that I am judging a company here by the experice of the guide.

We were so impressed with the knowledge of Devon Boggs on our Grand Canyon tour that we booked a Petrified Forest tour a few days later. The tours of packed with information and go to places that you wouldn't know of without a professional guide. Devon explained the background of an area and gave an interesting tour with fun facts. Request Devon for your tour and you won't be disappointed.
