Thank you for helping us to organise the Grand Canyon trip for our large party. It was simply a wonderful experience for us all. The plane ride was amazing and not sure I can fine words to describe what I thought of the canyon itself. It was simply breath-taking. From the transfer drivers, to the ladies on the desk who checked us in, to the wonderful pilots everyone went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Thanks again, Jenny
Thanks Grand Canyon Tour Company for a wonderful day on the South Rim tour Monday 9th March. I make particular thanks to the driver (bus 1), Mark, whom went above and beyond with the customer service received for this tour. He was an absolute gentleman, who always had a smile, willing to assist and was very knowledgeable! My highlight of the tour was to see and feel snow for the 1st time (back home in Australia, snow is a non event). I couldn't have asked for a better way to see snow then at the Grand Canyon. The Grand Central Cafe was a delight to have lunch with a beautiful selection of food! The tour price was exceptional and value for money!! We look forward to visiting your beautiful city again. Until next time! Thank you and with love,from your Australian visitors

I joined to get Williams at Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, got a train, and picked up at Grand Canyon. I miss the time, I was looking for the bus. The bus driver was looking for us and took us to Las Vegas. The driver had a good job to people make comfortable. We could enjoy very much. Thank you very much for our driver yesterday. You really have a good driver. Good job and good conversation. Nobuko
