  • "I would rate the group van tour as superb, but the train trip as OK. We most strongly recommend Steve Benson as a guide (Great Venture Tours) for the Grand Canyon Tour." See review

Amazing experience!
, Apr 2022
Steve, our guide was the absolute BEST!! He was so knowledgeable and fun!!We saw so many things we would never have known about if we had gone on our own. I would highly recommend this excursion. It is well worth the money!
Peaceful and informative!

Most memorable was our tour guide. She was wonderful. The van tour was actually better for us than the train.
Great Experience
, Apr 2022
We bused from Sedona to Williams, picking up the train there. Our guide, Steve, picked us up at the Canyon for the return trip to Sedona. The ride from Sedona to Williams via Oak Creek Canyon was spectacular. Beautiful canyon! The train ride was Ok, but not great. Lots of uninteresting prairie views. The Grand Canyon was spectacular. Our guide made several stops along the south rim. The guide himself was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable, adding interesting asides during the entire trip. He also had photo suggestions and volunteered to take pictures of us. I highly recommend the guide. He really enhanced the experience.

Thanks for the wonderful comments. Steve is a great guide and we're glad you enjoyed spending the day with him at Grand Canyon. Enjoy your pictures and come back again soon.
Van trip was good but train not so much. Loved our van driver, Steve. Had a wealth of knowledge.

Train ride was boring. Would have preferred to stay on the van trip instead of leaving to get on the train and then rejoining the group 2 hours later at the Grand Canyon. Definitely not worth the extra money for the train ride.

Thank you for your comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your Grand Canyon rim tour with Steve. He really is a wealth of information. The Grand Canyon Railway is a journey through history in the same fashion that early visitors experienced. We're sorry that it wasn't exactly what you anticipated but glad Steve was able to provide you with some history and scenery.

My favorite part was the stops with RJ, the travel guide and the interesting information about the GC he provided to us.
Dream trip

J.R. is excellent guide. Obviously very familiar with area, able to combine factual with personal experience. Showed us places we would never have discovered on our own. Our group was small and we were able to ask questions and interact with other guests.

We're happy to hear you enjoyed your trip with J.R. He definitely knows a lot about Arizona and enjoys sharing it with our guests. We hope you'll come and visit us again.
Exceeded our expectations
, Feb 2022
The scenic views of Sedona and the south rim of the Grand Canyon were life-giving! The train ride from Williams to the Grand Canyon fulfilled our desire to see some of the back country. As significant as the incredible views, was J.R.’s knowledge of each location that we visited, his lifelong connections and stories of life in and around Sedona, and his knowledge of significant events and locations at the Grand Canyon. J. R. focused on making sure that our questions were answered, and he did a great job! We would be happy to accompany J. R. again. It was a very positive and memorable experience!
Guide was great. Train...
, Dec 2021
Guide was great. Train ride was good. We enjoyed the entertainment on the train and the conductor was really good. Downfall was that the train tide is long and you miss out on time at the canyon. The train ride is long and the scenery doesn't compare to the canyon. There is also a rushed feeling due to the schedule of the tour. Overall good trip and would suggest to someone who doesn't want the hassle of driving yourself there and back. The guide was a wealth of knowledge as well. If you want to spend more time viewing the canyon then drive yourself there and you will have more time to see what you want.

Amazing Grand Canyon excursion with train ride.
, Nov 2021
We enjoyed seeing the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River.. We appreciated having someone know the best places to view different aspects of the canyon.. Our tour guide, Sheldon, was very knowledgeable. He knew where to take us for the best views. The train ride was relaxing. We only took one way which allowed us more time to view the canyon. We enjoyed the wild west show at the Williams train station.

I had no expectations for how this excersin would be. The train ride was fun and gave a great look at the sounding area. I however, didn't realize the train didn't go along the canyon. However, our tour guide took us to several overlook areas that I was not expecting. Totally exciting.
