I was picked up bright and early (6:15am) and we picked up 8 other guests at 3 different hotels. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. Offered us water on several occasions. Made enough stops for breaks and timed everything perfectly. We made 2 stops at different Grand Canyon viewpoints and then we were dropped off for about 2.5 hours to explore on our own. Picked up promptly and stopped in Williams on the way home. Overall a nice day and I would highly recommend if you only have one day to visit the canyon. We got back a little late (about 7:30pm) but I was also the last drop off. Masks are not mandatory on the bus but I prefer that they make them mandatory since its an enclosed space and you are with the group for so many hours.

Shantelle was an amazing tour guide; she was so knowledgeable and shared so many interesting facts with us that I took 6 pages of notes! Even though the day at the Canyon was FREEZING it was worth it to see the three places/views she took us to. It was a excellent trip, and I would highly recommend.

Pickup was prompt, the ride was nice, and we had a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. The stops were well-timed and of an appropriate duration. All the Grand Canyon stops were scenic and easy to make our way around. The boxed-lunch was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. It was a great day trip!
