What people are saying about Tempe
Brian was a great guide and made the trip fun! It is definitely a trip worth doing with a guide. There is knowledge and experience that you just won’t get going on your own. Some things to know: be prepared for a long day, be prepared to any kind of weather (it rained at the Grand Canyon but thankfully Brian had umbrellas ) and it was a bit cold, drinks are provided but bring your own food/snacks/drinks if you are a snacker. There are plenty of stops but just be prepared. Another great thing about the trip is that you never feel rushed - you will have plenty of time at each stop for pictures and bathroom breaks. Great stops for lunch and dinner. You can also charge your phone on the van. Just bring your cord to connect to charger. Overall great trip and experience and I would do it again.
Our guide Eric was outstanding! He was well versed in the area, it’s settlement and geological history, the native plants, etc. But he also knew how not to overburden us with facts and let us enjoy the amazing views. His timing was excellent in giving “rest” stops and souvenir shopping. The places we stopped for meals allowed for a variety in tastes and adequate time to eat. We even arrived at just the right place to have great views of a sunset. Though a long day if your time is limited I highly recommend this tour! The sights of the Great Canyon were amazing and I loved Senora and area around it.
Jason, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable in a variety of aspects of the tour. He not only provided us with insightful information regarding history, topography, geology and general interest, he was also well versed in timing the stops on the tour to make best use of our time. We'd been advised in advance that getting lunch on the tour could sometimes be difficult or time consuming so we opted to bring a brown bag lunch. While we arrived in plenty of time to have purchased lunch on site, it did allow us much more time to explore the south rim of the canyon.
The tour is wonderful. It is a must when you visit Arizona. We had an amazing tour guide, Eric who made this experience even more unforgettable.
Bruce was a great guide. He made the ride pleasant and he was very knowledgeable.
