“Sunset Tour”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We did the Grand Canyon Sunset Tour with Dave and are so glad we did. We had originally considered driving ourselves but we would have missed so much if we had done that. Dave was super knowledgeable and very accommodating. The dinner was enjoyable and the canyon was a spectacular experience!

“A fabulous adventure to the Grand Canyon”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We knew that the drive to the Grand Canyon from Sedona was over two hours and we were worried that our sons, age 11 and 14, would be bored on the drive without some electronic entertainment. We need never to have feared! The moment the incredible tour guide, Dave Reed, picked us promptly at 7:15 a.m. outside of our hotel, we were entertained and educated by his rich knowledge of the area, his jokes, his personable and engaging manner and his infectious love of his home. The entire drive up, he pointed out trees and told stories and overall gave us an amazing understanding of the area. In the Grand Canyon itself, he was able to make us feel like we were having our own private adventure, even when we were surrounded by people. More than once, other tourists stopped to listen to Dave's fascinating and well-researched information of the area. Dave is also an accomplished photographer, and insisted on taking pictures of us with our own cameras so we would have attractive memories of the trip. We spent almost 12 hours with Dave, and when we were done, we wished he could accompany us for the rest of our stay in the Southwest!

Other notes about the tour: The van was clean and comfortable. Water and bags of chips were provided to help us with altitude issues. We took the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, which was exhilarating. El Tovar was lovely, but the service was middling -- none of the wait staff looked happy to be there.

“Grand Canyon Experience”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Allen was really great as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. My wife and I loved the tour. It's hard to beat the Grand Canyon but Allen made it better. He is an excellent driver, and we felt safe with him in control. He was very funny at times and told great stories.

“Grand Canyon Tour”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

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.

“Take this tour.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

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.
