Overall, we enjoyed the excursion although we expected a motor coach with bathroom. Our guide was a little hard to understand for his accent, however, he was on point on how to make the most of the tour experience. Since it was self-guided, he suggested what to focus on and how long to stay at each stop, where to do lunch, etc., and he was right. The guide caught a bad rap because one family was 30 minutes late getting back to the bus. The on time passengers complained about the late passengers and the late passengers complained because the on time passengers were mad. It was tense but not his fault. He did his job safely. I actually forgot to tip him and would if I could. (Please let me know if I can.) Lastly, the company should consider extending the time for the tour and breaks. The lines are long for everything and eats up time which contributes to passengers running late. Thanks!

The trip was pleasant, the stops were sufficient, the view of the Grand Canyon was spectacular, enjoying a sandwich at Cuano Point sitting on the natural pitches was a moment that we will not forget. It's just a pity that you can't find anything in Italian since not everyone understands English

Great day worth the price. We had the pleasure of having a driver who shared a lot of information about the landscape, the history as well as practical advice. Dinner was also very good. We had plenty of time to explore the place, but didn't do the skywalk which many say is a tourist trap. It gave us even more time to go around the place. We are really satisfied!
