It was great. Our guide, Frank Zelle was truly excellent, and it was obvious that he enjoyed Grand Canyon and the sights as much as we did. His enthusiasm was infectious. He pointed out interesting sights on the drive up, and on the drive back also. The drive down to Sedona was truly awesome, and Sedona was excellent.

Our van driver was Bruce, and he was awesome! He took us to several different spots at the Grand Canyon that all took our breath away. He was fun and taught us lots! We almost drove ourselves to the Grand Canyon, and are SO glad we left it to an expert. It was a once I n a lifetime experience.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area we drove through on our way and about the Grand Canyon. Highly recommend this tour if you are only able to spend a day at the Grand Canyon
