You could do this trip more cheaply as a self-drive activity, but we wanted a break from driving. Having a guided tour made for an easy and relaxing trip.

Our driver/guide (Marcia) was passionate about the canyon and full of lots of facts and first hand experience of living and working in the canyon, which is much more interesting than simple turning up at a view point to peer over the edge.

Not sure if it's unusual, but we were the only people on the trip, so it a was effectively a private tour. Pace was just right for us and we could spend as much time as we needed at each stopping point. Picnic lunch provided. Also received some good advice from Marcia about where to go to the following day.

We really had a great time. Since it was 3 of us the tour was essential a private one. They pick you up at your Flagstaff hotel, in a large, comfortable SUV and head out. Laura our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. Antelope Canyon is not to be missed! A basic lunch is provided, along with drinks etc. Expect a long trip as the distances between Flagstaff and the sites are vast.

This tour was truly a waste of time and money. Our guide, he actually never said his name, although nice did not speak for the first 15 minutes of picking us up, and then he only told us that there wasn’t much in the scenery to speak about.

If we had simply gone to the Grand Canyon National Park on our own and read the signs posted at the vantage point we would have seen exactly what was shown on the tour. If you want a guided tour pick another one. We basically paid for lunch and a chafer.

I do thank you the staff for accommodating my son's dietary restrictions, but that was the only positive thing I could really say about this "tour".

The ride seemed longer than expected because it was very boring, no one was talking. We were a group of 6 people (ages 17 to 79) plus 2 other older passengers.
I had never Not tipped a guide tour, but this tour was my first exception.

Booked a private day tour of the Grand Canyon for our party of four. Drew was our guide. Toured most of the South Rim in a comfortable Ford Expedition (with frequent stops) and hiked a bit at Hermit Trail . Drew was amazing. Very knowledgeable, flexible, pleasant. Picnic lunch at the rim (sandwiches, chips, pasta salad) was tasty. Would definitely book again with this company. Top notch!

Drew and his team were the best, they are so informative and make sure you are enjoying yourself and seeing everything you wanted to. I would highly recommend them for anyone who wants to have a great time. We used them for trips to both Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe bend.
