This was my first skydive. Which meant I was a lil nervous. The canyon view was a beautiful site. The skydive was amazing!! The instructor Shaun is great and makes you feel very comfortable with his knowledge of Skydiving. He shows you and rechecks his hook ups and explains all to come more than once. The exhilarating feel once falling out of the plane was wonderful!! A must do. I would definitely do again!!! Thanks Shaun for my first experience!!! Mercy

This tour is a must do!!!! Our tour guide was funny and so knowledgeable. He was prompt and answered any and all questions. Matt, our tour guide, was also extremely personable which made the day that much more fun. He took us to the very best spots of the canyon and dinner was delicious! We will absolutely book again with this company when we are back in arizona!

This was a very exciting and entertaining trip. Andrea was very nice and very knowledgeable. She answer all or our questions and provided valuable information regarding the places we visited. Andrea improvised to give us the best opportunity to enjoy the Grand Canyon and that made the trip even better.

The bus was small with just 7 people which I liked. The tour guide was very nice and informative. We saw so much more than we would have on our own and learned quite a lot about the Canyon and surrounding area.

We hit many scenic overlooks with our guide from our private small coach, didn't have to wait for park transport.
