We did the tour with Werner as our guide and it was great! He himself has experienced so much in and around the canyon itself, as he is an enthusiastic hiker and was able to show us pictures of some things from his private tours, n on which we saw other animals that live in the national park. He has such extensive knowledge and you really learned a lot on the tour. Werner is just a really cool and very relaxed person! Any time!

Our guide, Werner, was entertaining as well as informative. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the geology, the plant and animal life as well as the history. We were fortunate to see wild horses, mule deer, elk and a variety of interesting plants. This was a tour in a truck, but also a nature walk and the sunset over the canyon was breath-taking. You cannot miss this adventure. Ask your guide what “DUDE” means.

I loved the stories about the locals but the best were the ones about the people who have visited the Grand Canyon and have had near death experiences. We stopped at 3 points on the south side of the canyon and it was AMAZING!!! We watched the sunset over the Grand Canyon which was breathtaking! Our tour guide kept us on time and was very patient with my 7 and 4 year old. Absolutely a perfect tour!!! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the Grand Canyon and hear some stories along the way.
