The tour to the Grand Canyon was an exceptional experience with Carlito as our guide! His ability to provide entertaining and informative explanations really added to the enjoyment of the trip. Plus, it was a bonus when everything was well-organized, making the experience even smoother and more enjoyable. If I were booking a tour, I'd definitely be looking for one with a guide like Carlito!

My daytour to Antelope Canyon got canceled, but the company got me scheduled on Saturday trip to Death Valley instead. Our guide Bin was very nice and he did know a lot when being asked a question. Also very polite. He gets a 100% recommendation.

It was a very, very long journey. This is something to keep in mind... Time at the Grand Canyon is limited. For us it was a total of 2.5 hours. Still absolutely worth seeing and worth the long bus ride for us. The tour guide Aloe was fantastic.

You had to be very early and the bus arrived right on time. In addition, he stopped at our hotel for a couple who had not been to the right starting point…

Carlito was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of information and insight about our trip. He made it fun and very enjoyable. Awesome job!
