Our driver and guide, Michael, was very good, very reliable and he shared lots of information about the area and Grand Canyon. He must have been an anthropology student , although much more mature now. He knew where to stop, which Grand Canyon entrances to take to maximize our experience and minimize in traffic. Overall an excellent experience!

We had a wonderful tour. Keton was professional in every way; a wealth of knowledge on the Canyon, a safe driver and ensured we were comfortable at all times. I will be booking with Canyon Dave again when I return with more family
