What people are saying about Grand Canyon Village

We were a party of 10 in small group tour. Katsu and Terry from FunGroup made the tour really enjoyable and definitely made the long time on the road a pleasant experience. Terry provided us with some great facts along our trip and was very knowledgeable. They were both very accommodating to our requests and would highly recommend Katsu and Terry for your guided tour. We also enjoyed the lunch (sandwich, chips and cookie) provided. My visiting family from the Philippines, my daughter and I really enjoyed this tour!

Paul & Dustin were thoughtful, polite & knowledgeable. Fun trip with can’t miss visits to these big 3. It’s a long “day” and we could not have done it on our own, nor would you want to. Our highlight was Antelope Canyon but we enjoyed all of them. Help with photos, food, comfort stops & history lessons all wrapped into one. Mom & daughter from Pgh PA

Terry and EJ They were two wonderful travel companions. Super beautiful tour recommended for those who, like us, had only one day left to visit the Grand Canyon. Strategic stops to go to the bathroom and to have a snack. Well done!

Amazing tour!!! Antelope canyon X was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. The guide was amazing, and lovely to be a small group of max 12 people (for the van tour).

Isabella and Jerry treated us very well ... the times in each visit very organized and without wasting time
