I would highly recommend using this tour company. They picked us up directly from out hotel, provided comfortable transportation, an excellent and very knowledgeable tour guide and even provided a freshly packed picnic lunch. Fantastic experience!

The customer service before the tour was great and Bob is an amazing GC guide - very knowledgable and gave us background/details unlike any tour we've taken. He was flexible and customized the tour for our family, working around the rain and the fact that we had time to make extra stops b/c our family was able to move quickly. Lunch was delicious and the kids enjoyed the snacks in the van. Bob knew his way around and gave us pointers to get the most our of our time there. Went back to the Canyon a few days later to hike and had good info to make it more enjoyable. He also gave us info about other areas to check out. I believe the experience was so positive because of the attention to detail this tour company has - nothing like the larger (you're just another traveler) tours - felt personalized being guided by someone with first-hand experience. We highly recommend Grand Canyon Adventures and hope to return to do a more extended tour if they offer in the future.

We too bought our tour on Groupon. Our group included four friendly retirees, and our family consisting of two grandparents, two parents and our 9 year old grandson.

Our tour of the canyon was the highlight of our Northern Arizona trip. We were worried that our grandson might become bored, but he was thrilled to learn about the history of the canyon and to gaze in amazement at the views with the rest of the group. Bob knew so many facts that he spiced up with interesting tales of the adventures of earlier explorers. He included lots of his own adventures too. Bob shared his telescope with us and pointed out things that we wouldn't have been able to see. People who weren't in our group crowded around to hear his stories and he even let them see through his telescope.

When we stopped for our picnic lunch, our grandson, Christopher was able to complete his tasks to earn his fifth Junior Ranger badge. We returned to find a fine spread complete with sandwich fixings, fruit, chips, cookies and assorted sodas.

When we learned we would be going past the Cameron Trading Post and had wished we had stopped the previous day, Bob made a special stop so that we could do a little shopping and enjoy a couple of ginornous fry breads.

Our day was perfect, the van was comfortable, well stocked with drinks, water, and a large assortment of treats. Bob arrived 15 minutes early and we arrived home at the scheduled time. Everything was perfect, including the weather.

Thanks for a wonderful experience, Chris, Barb, Jeff, Zenna, and Christopher Fisher

We had a wonderful time. The guide shared his first hand knowledge based on 40 years of hiking the canyon. His telescope brought great views of the floor, river and distance points of the canyon which we would not have noticed otherwise. Lunch was a build your own sandwich and fruit, which provided us with a choice that would but any deli to shame. Over all a great experience.

I highly recommend this travel adventure provider. On my own, I have visited the canyon before and only saw a large canyon. Our guide pointed out things that we would have never known were there. We learned so much more on this trip. It was interesting, informative and fun! This is a family run business. They take personal pride in what they do. Call Theresa and book with confidence that you'll have a great overall experience. Thanks Bob!

Thank you for the great review of Grand Canyon Adventures, we are happy that you had a pleasant experience. We are striving to make sure that we give everyone of our customers a great trip, from the first call to the drop-off at the end of the day! The canyon is a huge void and is overwhelming when first seeing it, it is nice to be with someone that has experience in and around the canyon for such a long time. Thank you for spending the day with us and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!
