This tour was very worthwhile. The ride to the grand canyon was very scenic and the tour guide gave a lot of hosiery and cool information throughout the entirety of the day. She was very knowledgeable and versatile to work with. Due to some inclement weather, she had to rearrange some things during our tour but she did it in a manner that we didn't even notice and it definitely didn't take away from the quality of the tour. I believe the tour guide s name was Diane or Diana. She was excellent. We enjoyed every moment from start to finish. She constantly made sure everyone was comfortable and well hydrated and just overall, made the tour very enjoyable.

Very good option to visit the national parks. I was staying in Las Vegas and found it very practical to count on the tour for these long drives. Everything was well organised! Tour guide and driver were super nice and the bus was very comfortable.

Jeff was a wonderful experienced guide. He took us to the best views of the canyon. I'm so glad I went on a tour. I would definitely book again.

It was a wonderful trip and our guide Cody was great. Very informative and accommodating. Would definitely use this company again.

Good way to see all the highlights of these parks in a limited amount of time.
