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.

Our guide Diane was amazing. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the canyon and route to it was phenomenal. It was an incredible day we will always remember. This small group tour had it all and allowed us to enjoy the canyon with time and insight. We arrived to cloud but it lifted to the most magnificent vistas and a rainbow over the canyon. A highly recommended day!

This was a great experience! My guide, Tyson, gave in depth commentary on the history and natural environment of the various areas as we drove from Scottsdale to the Grand Canyon. This made the entire ride interesting. It is a long day but definitely worth the trip!

My husband and I had a fantastic trip! Our guide, Robert, was so informative and super fun! I think he might be the best guide we’ve had on a trip like this. It is a long day, but it was totally worth it!

Aldo was an excellent tour guide. Do the helicopter tour 100% worth it.
