Painless transfer from hotel and well timed stops in between. The guide was nice and knowledgeable. It would have been nice if the village stop can be a little longer than 1.5 hr but it is understandable to allow time for traffic etc. Happy customer indeed

An enjoyable but long day viewing the Grand Canyon in all it's glory. Great commentary and care from Brendan our driver who was knowledgeable, unflustered and competent. Excellent helicopter flight really was the highlight. A trip to remember. Thank you.

After a first stop at the red rocks of Sedona we had a short break downtown Sedona followed by a marvelous trip to the Grand Canyon. There we had lunch and several stops to enjoy the... More

Wow, jcsnoopy, what a terrific review! Amanda sure is a great tour guide, she loves showing people the Grand Canyon. Seeing Sedona and Native American sites on the same day as the Grand Canyon really gives you a full tour of what Arizona has to offer. So glad you enjoyed it as much as we did!
