Not great, kind of boring and repetitive
Tracey_A
, Jul 2022
We were staying in the park and drove to tuysan to get to this tour. The tour took us to all the places we had already been. Would recommend this if this tour is your only access to the park.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hello Tracey A. We are sorry that you thought the tour viewpoints were repetitive to places that you had already visited. Our listing on the TripAdvisor/Viator page has an itinerary and map that shows where we go for our excursion. Our page also shows the departure and return location is located in Tusayan, which is 1 mile outside of the Grand Canyon National Park. Customers that have a hotel inside the National Park will drive to Tusayan, board one of our safari vehicles and then proceed through the Kaibab Forest into the Grand Canyon National Park. Although you might have been to a few viewpoints on your own, you would not have received our in-depth discussion of the geology, history, flora and fauna of this amazing attraction. Also, your guide Werner is one of our absolute best guides which is reflected by the dozens of positive reviews that can be seen on this platform. So, we are surprised you found the tour not to your liking. Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your experience.

Great day outing!!!
Rich_D

We had a great time and very organized outing. Anthony was our driver and narrator for the evening and he did a GREAT job!!! This guy needs a raise if he hasn't gotten one yet. We visited three areas of the park and got to watch and AWESOME sunset. You never know quite how a tour is going to be; whether its going to be kinda hokey or not. This was not!!! If you are thinking about booking this is great. We did not have enough time in our trip for a few days to visit the Grand Canyon so this was a wonderful way to see the highpoints for sure.
