Impeccable organization, extraordinary tour. What made our experience unique and perfect were the professionalism and kindness of the driver, Ozzie, and above all of the excellent Italian guide, who has lived in Las Vegas for 25 years, Lorenzo who not only told stories, anecdotes and curiosities but he entertained us throughout the trip, transmitting the passion he has for his work and for the United States in general, a country full of contradictions and ambiguities but with crazy landscapes and places that deserve a visit once in a lifetime. We took the tour during Christmas days and will always remember them with pleasure. The only flaw of an otherwise perfect trip was that we did not visit the "Lower" Antelope Canyon as scheduled but the so-called "X", the last one that was opened. We didn't understand if it was an oversight by the agency or if it was intentional, in any case we were very satisfied with this visit too. Absolutely recommended tour.

Wyatt was an amazing guide! He was a wealth of information, and had great activities to help us enjoy and understand that information. It was a fabulous energetic experience, and we would recommend it to anyone looking to explore the energies in the area.

Eric, our guide, was great! He is very knowledgeable and accommodating! Doing both Sedona and Grand Canyon is a day is the best way to see Arizona if you have limited time.
