The tour was very well organized, our guide Milton was knowledgeable, kind. You get to see the Canyon from different spots. I have to say that the agency went out of their way to arrange a last minute pick up for me at the train station, stored my luggage and even give me a ride back to location that was convenient, which I’m extremely grateful for and I would definitely recommend going on a tour with that type of people.

Colleen was an awesome guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and she has a great personality. Colleen volunteered to take our photos at each stop. Before we left the tour she suggested we visit the east rim which we did the next day. Our entire group appreciated her suggestion and we were glad we made the trip. Colleen is a definite asset to the company.

Everything was exactly as shown on the web. We were picked up at our hotel, and our guide, Shawna, was excellent. I'd recommend Grand Canyon Adventures to anyone.
