    Luke was a great guide. His enthusiasm and knowledge made the trip enjoyable and educational. We had walked along the grand canyon on our own for a couple of hours earlier in the day and taking this tour helped us to see it in a while different way . God is truly amazing and with each stop we were reminded of just how amazing He is. Thank you Luke for the great tour!

    I I think you guys did a great job showing and telling me about the grand canyon. I don't think I missed anything on the south rim. The East Rim I didn't get to until later in the afternoon. The guides comments at each point we're very good.

    Scenery is spectacular. Not as crowded as I expected. Less wildlife than I anticipated. Did run into one storm, but we should have paid closer attention to the weather forecast.

    The self guided tour definitely helped us enjoy more of the south rim than we would have on our own. We enjoyed the narrative as well - very informative.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, Mike! That flexibility is one of the best features of our self-guided tour. I’m thrilled that my tour of the Grand Canyon added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the US — hopefully, you’ll get the chance to try them next time!

    The tour was comprehensive and maps easy to use. Particularly good to be able to download first so no wifi needed en route - and it still tracked where you were and automatically started the audio at the right points.
