What people are saying about Sedona

JR was an excellent guide! He knew the history and topography of the land! We learned a lot about the Grand Canyon from its formation to what’s happening now. He had all these little tidbits of information that were very interesting since it was our first time to go to the Grand Canyon! Since we were traveling with seniors, he tailored our trip to accommodate the needs of everybody! I would highly recommend this tour to anybody traveling to the South rim of the Grand Canyon!

Al was such a great guide and host. He was timely on picking me up and communicated incredibly well. His knowledge of Sedona, Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, and Navajo Nation was superb. He was full of stories and jokes. I had an amazing time on this trip.

We had Al as a guide, and he was very informative and nice! Led the group and showed us multiple different areas of the Grand Canyon, took pictures for us, had lunch planned out and made the trip a smooth and seamless ride! We thoroughly enjoyed!
