REAL REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS

  • Such an early start but definitely worth it. It was only the four of us and one couple. Our guide was informative about the area and it's history and the stop at Hoover Dam showed what an engineering marvel it is. Onwards to the Grand Canyon and even for someone terrified of heights not to be be missed, Skywalk Rim was extraordinary and the whole experience quite awe inspiring.

  • The tour totally lived up to our expectations. The pick up was early which gave us a head start and we managed to beat the queue at the parking lot. We especially loved the fact that we could be on our own and not with the group. The guide was knowledgeable and relaxed, yet very punctual and organized. There were 2 stops+ the Grand Canyon. The group was small (10 people) Highlights: horseback riding, eagle point (we didn’t want to do the skywalk), guana point. It was a delightful experience. Thank you:)
