This is an excellent tour of the famous national parks - south and east rims of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley (backdrop of lots of cowboy movies), lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Zion national park. The sights are fanta..stic! It was great to travel in a small group and due to the numbers, I was lucky to have a room to myself! Michael, our guide, was excellent - he was knowledgeable, professional and had a good sense of humour. He made everyone feel at ease and comfortable with each other. The hotels we stayed in were comfortable and clean. The rooms were big. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 days. I highly recommend this tour and company.Read full review
This is a tour that gives you a sample of the several landmark views of Death Valley (1-day trip) and Grand Canyon / Monument Valley / Zion (3-day trip). Since the parks are huge, you spend a lot of time going from one place to the other us..ing their van. The van was comfortable and spacious. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable about history and other aspects of the places we visited. This is a great trip to know the key landmarks and views from the park.Read full review
The tour was exceptional. We were amazed by the wonderful sights (as anyone would be I think) but Mike made the whole experience fantastic too - knowledgeable and generous at every stage. Thanks for making our first exposure to US natural ..wonders absolutely unforgettable.Read full review
I was traveling with my wife & two adult children. The short version is I would do this trip again & highly recommend it to others. I have listed the following details for further consideration:
COMMUNICATION: when considering this tour ..with other companies, separated themselves with how quick they answered any question & addressed any comments (we) had...
GROUP: had the maximum of (14) tourist from all over the world. We were the only ones from the "states," not counting our tour guide, who did an excellent job getting everyone involved. This really added to this tour...watching adults see & play in the snow for the first time. Priceless.
SITES: Rt 66 souvenir shops, Grand Canyon rim walk & look-outs, Monument Valley, Horse Shoe Curve, Glen Canyon Dam, Zion... AWESOME! Our tour guide did a great job in keeping everyone moving along, BUT not feeling rushed or hurried. The ANTELOPE CANYON is listed as "optional," I highly recommend that you do this. It is well worth the extra cash.
TOUR GUIDE: Turned out to be Mike L., who we had on another day tour with this company about a year or two ago. As last time, Mike seems to sincerely like his job & his enthusiasm & desire to share information is contagious...often getting the whole group going.Read full review
The trip overall was great. It was a group of 12, and everyone was punctual at time, which was very nice. Our driver/tour guide Song was very humorous, nice and skilled driver. He also helped take good photos of us. All the sites were nice... The only thing that might be improved is the itinerary--too much time on the road versus time at each place. We only had about 1-1.5 hour at each place. It would be much nicer if we had more time and deeper exploration at places like the national parks. But on the other hand, it is a long drive within two days anyway. Overall it was great.Read full review
