Scheduled this tour last minute and did not have high expectations but was a pleasant surprise. Friendly tour guides and beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend this as a great way to see the canyon especially if you are not a hiker!

The staff was great, I was a little disappointed that we did not get to do the 2 hour tour we booked, and did not have enough cash (as this is all they take) for the 3 hour with us.
