Visiting friends in the Surprise, AZ, area and we decided all of us would go see the Grand Canyon. Research turned up Angel's Gate Tours with high marks, and we booked with them. Everything was as they said - GREAT guide (Shawn) who gave us history about the canyon, the pioneers who 'founded' various places, the topography and plant and animal life. Shawn was also VERY knowledgeable about how the canyon was formed, what types of layers we saw, what events created them, and just about everything else we wanted to know. A GREAT lunch was provided, and he made sure we were well hydrated at all times. The ONLY negative was that we were NOT able to have our van "never full" due to our group of 4 being joined by two MORE groups of 4 - not an empty seat on the van, but it wasn't an issue.
Overall, we all COMPLETELY enjoyed this tour. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. Absolutely worth it, and no better way to see the canyon on your first trip.
