          Amazing tour combining learning with incredible views of God's creation
          Adam was a great guide. The hike was challenging, but we learned so much. We would recommend this hike to anyone who wants to understand the Grand Canyon in light of biblical teaching.

          Experience the Biblical perspective on the formation of the Grand Canyon. Well worth it!
          We originally were going on the South Kaibab Trail but we requested it be changed to the Bright Angel Trail. Tour guide Eddy was excellent, accommodating and very knowledgeable. What an amazing adventure. It was easier going down than coming back up, but the experience was incredible. Rebutting the wild notion about millions of years in development, Eddy shared the biblical perspective of how the canyon was actually developed. If you are on the edge about evolution, you need to hear this presentation and actually see God's handiwork and marvelous creation in the Grand Canyon. Recommend this trail tour to everyone. Well worth the cost and time. Great job to all the Canyon Ministries Staff for your great work and insight.

          Inspiring Canyon Tour for the Whole Family
          This was an excellent and enjoyable tour for our family. The views of the canyon at sunset were spectacular, and the guide's explanation of geology and faith was well informed and very edifying. I highly recommend Canyon Ministries.

          Simply Amazing!
          I don’t even know where to begin! Our tour guide Luke was amazing. He answered our questions, gave us incredible information about the canyon, and encouraged us spiritually! By far one of the highlights of our trip! We had a group of 11 ranging in age from 10-80, and it was perfect for us all.

          Spectacular, informative tour
          Eddy was a fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He paced our tour well wven patiently andwering our questions. This tour was a valuable way to experience the Grand Canyon while providing solid explanations for the formation of this wonder of the world. The views were stunning and evoked some tears. We'll be back for another experience in the future!

          A must do tour
          Ill admit, I am not overly impressed with mostntours and have taken many tours on which i base that comment. This is worth every dime and every minute. The tour guide knew a tremendous amount about the canyon itself, especially where and how to hike, places to see etc. That alone was nice but to add on top the uniqueness of the geological aspects was over top great. To hear scientific evidence showing the colorado river did NOT carve the canyon, the scientific impossibility of formations taking millions of years and much more. Great information and the tour guide was truly kind and pleasant. I really enjoyed it.

          It was a great tour of the canyon rim with breathtaking views. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable, and explained the geology, history, flora, and fauna of the canyon very well.

          I had the privilege of going on a sunset tour with two of my grandchildren, ages 15 and 18. Our guide, Bob, made it a very educational and spiritually enlightening adventure. The Biblical Flood model was clearly presented, as well as the reason for the flood---God's judgment of sin. The view at sunset was amazing.

          Amazing Tour from a Biblical Worldview
          Our guides were amazing and we learned so much about God's Beautiful Creation. Refreshing to hear from a Biblical Creation worldview instead of secular worldview. They were very knowledgeable and what they said made sense. Thank you for a great tour!

          Seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time was breathtaking! Having the biblical perspective from our tour guide, Bob Smart enhanced the overall experience. Bob was so well versed on the Bible we thought he was a pastor but he is simply very enthusiastic!

          What a fantastic experience! Not only did we see the Grand Canyon from some incredible vantage points, we also learned so much about the canyon and its formation. Our guide Dana was great with our group, and so informative.

          We were blown away by the beauty of the canyon and the magnitude of God's creation. Couple that with a tour explaining the formation of the canyon from a biblical perspective. Truly phenomenal. Thank you, Eddy, for explaining things so well. We all went away with our faith increased and more in awe of our Creator.

          4-Hour Biblical Creation + Sunset Tour
          This tour was an eye opener as it discussed the geology and makings of GOD’s creation. The trip revealed how GOD shows his might and power through his creation. This tour was awesome!

        Nothing was mentioned about the events of Genesis 10–11 and migration from Babel to the Americas. It seemed like we were getting minimal information without good explanation of where we were and what we were seeing. (The same information was repeated several times). We felt there was much more that could have been covered. The Sunset Rim tour the evening before (with Luke) was wonderful and we got much more information in 4 hours than the 10 hours with Eddie. Eddie is very nice and maybe If we hadn't done the 4 hr Sunset rim, we wouldn't have known what we were missing. However, he also neglected to provide helpful information, leaving us to feel left in the dark when going from place to place. Half of us ended up eating a "rushed meal" at a "snack stop" unaware we would eat lunch at a nice restaurant within the hour. Also, it may have been different had we not had another couple with us that he spent a lot of time talking to.(It may have been very different had it just been our group)?? I am just very thankful we did the sunset tour so my grand kids did still get a lot from our visit overall. Unfortunately, I do think we were left with gaps in our understanding by not getting the in-depth education the second day. I was looking forward to the kids learning about "Babel.

        Thanks for the review and feedback. We highly appreciate it! I'm sorry the Triple Park Tour did not meet your expectations. We strive for five-star feedback and that's certainly not the typical review we hear from guests. Every tour is unique and much of that has to do with the guests we have on a tour. It sounds like the other couple may have had many more questions that shifted the focus of the discussions that took place. I would love to hear more about ways we can improve and would offer to help by providing a private Zoom teaching session for your family about Genesis 1-11 and Babel if that would be beneficial. Please email our office if we can be of any assistance. Many blessings! -Nate Loper, Executive Director

        I wanted to love this tour, but I didn’t. It takes a certain energetic personality to be a good tour guide, especially on a full day trip. Our tour guide was a lovely person, but he just did not have the skillset needed to give an engaging, full day tour. The ride there was an excruciating hour and half of what came across as a monotone sermon. Kids were bored and so were at least some of the adults. At the Canyon, I did not feel the creation story was told effectively, and I was disappointed in the way some things were said. The place we stopped for lunch was crowded and we had to wait a long time to get what turned out to be really bad food. At the remaining stops, the tour guide did not give us much, if any, information and background on them. All in all, I think it comes down to what you are looking for in a tour. Perhaps others would feel differently, but I cannot recommend this tour based on my experience.

        Greetings! We're sorry this tour did not seem to meet your expectations. Due to the nature of this being a loop tour, it does require about an hour and a half to drive up to the park. While most enjoy that time getting to know their guide, each other, and the landscape, it seems that was not the case for your family. Thank you for your feedback as we strive to address the things we can adjust to make this a top-notch tour for all.

        We were a group of 5 with 2 young children and my 70 yr old mother in-law. We had such a great experience. Our tour guide Nate was excellent, very knowledgeable and very willing to answer all of our questions. It was a long day and traveling with young ones and elderly we had plenty of bathroom breaks and options for those that wanted to walk more or walk less. Nate connected all the natural wonders that we saw throughout the day with the Bible. It was amazing. Although a long day I highly recommend this trip.

        This experience was amazing. We learned so much scientifically and biblically. The tour was go with the flow and relaxed with biblical teachings periodically. Our tour guide, Bruce, was incredibly knowledgeable and anointed to teach the Word of God. The kids were a little tired by the last two attractions but it was still 100% worth it. The bus was comfortable and we didn’t have to worry about gps and just took in the sights!

        We thoroughly enjoyed the Triple Park Tour and our guide, Adam Huff, was outstanding! We loved how he shared the creation story of the Grand Canyon with the Bible teaching of the flood.

        We took the 11 hour triple park tour and it was amazing! Nate was our guide and his passion and enthusiasm was contagious. I was blown away hearing the biblical creation perspective that made me in awe of our Heavenly Father. We were able to ask any questions and it felt that we had plenty time at every park. The pick up location was ideal and clear. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.

        Eddy Bessler was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He gave us a new Biblical perspective on the formation of the Grand Canyon, Desert View and Wupatki monument, Sunset Crater monument. We asked tons of questions (sometimes x2) and he was so patient. He always gave us the Biblical view and scriptural references. He pointed out the difference in rock stratification. I would do it again! I've already referred friends to this tour.

        Nate was very knowledgeable about all aspects of this tour especially the geology of the Grand Canyon from a biblical worldview. All the arrangements went without a hitch. Many of the park rangers knew Nate on a first name basis. A very edifing and enjoyable experience and highly recommended.
