My guides with Fun Group were Tomo and Yu. The pickup point at Bellagio was easy to find thanks to the company’s good communication. Driving was shared between our guides because it was a 17 hour day. They were both very safe drivers I was impressed. The van I was in had a high top and well temperature controlled. This tour is well worth it. The guides did preplanned pit stops at good intervals. It was so much easier on a tour as they know exactly where the best viewing and photo opportunities were. Tomo is a seasoned photographer, as I was touring alone he was able to take shots of myself with the landscape as well as the rest of the group. That itself was worth the tour cost. The three included sights are magnificent and it was not rushed to see each site. You visit Canyon X with a Navajo guide. Beautiful. Our group of ladies was also a fun group to tour with on sept 9. Highly recommend company and tour. Details were well planned - no hiccups. It’s a long day. Recommend Tomo too!

One of the best trips we had in US. Initially we wanted to do all the activities on our own in a 2-day tour with stay in Page, however we decided to go with FunGroup and it was the the best choice. I liked them from the first email-contact where they provided all details for the tour. Our guides were very helpful and made the tour very interesting. Recommended it with all my heart - tourists from Poland :)

Great experience from beginning to end. Amazing tour guide Jaren and bus driver Brandi. The food they provided was pretty good. The bus was clean and comfortable. I would definitely book this company again

Enjoyed thoroughly!! It was well organized, and loved the accomodations as well. The guides were really helpful and patient with us !

We had a great trip. The train ride was awesome with a lot of entertainment. We would definitely go again!
