Keaton brought charm, depth, wise strong telling and passion to the tour. We were immersed in history, architecture, music, ecology, biology, herbs, and archeology perspectives in one 6-hour tour! This tour is highly recommended by our family. Our favorite stories were of Mary Elizabeth Colter and all the other mavericks of their time!

Our tour guide Keaton was a wealth of knowledge about both the history and science of the Grand Canyon. He was engaging and seems to have a love of this national park that he shared with our tour group. The tour gave us a fantastic overview with many great views. We loved it and highly recommend this tour!

The whole tour was great! Our tour guide, Tim is very knowledgeable and interesting. We saw a thorough area of the west and east rims of the Grand Canyon and even sighted elk on our drive. Guide was very informative about the area's geology, history of the area and places we visited was wonderful. The lunch trip was fun also. Would definitely use this service again.

Think the 1st time I saw the Grand Canyon was pouring thru a late 1940's article in the National Geographic. "Gotta go there someday," remember saying. Well 70+ years later, finally got here and WOW, AM I HAPPY! Thank you Cool Destinations for helping make it a thoroughly memorable pilgrimage. Visiting this 5 & 1/2 million year Monument to Nature, up close & live, was both awe inspiring & humbling, an emotional experience I can only compare to seeing the Pyramids, Sphinx, Abu Simbel for the 1st time in 1985. Our guide was Superb and his Geological explanation of the various strata that make up the Canyon, their formations, consistency and ages, was just 1 of many highlights of a beautiful, unforgettable day. Forgive my forgetting his name. I'll hide behind mental decline. Believe it was at Lipan Point under a shady tree, he deftly described 1,700 million years of a miracle in the making, all in less than an hour. Our lunch at a Trading Post near Navajo Point was exceptional. Sitting amidst wall fittings & furnishings rescued from an 1890's Pharmacy, while dining on superb local cusine, and admiring the original stamped metal ceilings was another highlight. Still get chills thinking about it, with regrets for not having eaten the 2nd carnitas taco on a massive plate. We must have stopped at 7 or 8 various viewpoints along the South Rim. Sun and Shadow work their magic, providing infinite color variations of the ever changing Canyon. At Desert View, we visited the Watchtower, meticulously designed by Mary Colter in the early '30's, an exact replica of those built by native populations centuries ago. A thrilling experience sums it up. Something you just "gotta see someday."

Keaton did a fabulous job! The day just flew by! Keaton provided informative background on the formation/geology of the Canyon as well as European and Native American history associated with the area.

Our van tour around the South Rim of the Grand Canyon with Keaton as our guide was excellent. He made several stops as he drove us in a comfortable large van around the rim of the canyon. At each stop Keaton told us about the geology of the canyon as well as information about local plants and animals. He even gave us full-color handouts with descriptions about each aspect, so helpful to review when we get home. Others on our tour took a similar excursion led by park staff, but they didn't get as much detailed information as Keaton gave us. This was well worth the cost!

Ingrid our guide was excellent! She gave valuable information about the Grand Canyon from the time we got into the van. She handed out beautiful colored handouts in every stop and went over the highlights of each view point we stopped at. She went over the geology and explained in detail of the history of the rock formations from the beginning of billions of years ago to today. Each stop was breathtaking, and we were in awe of the views of every angle. Ingrid explained in depth of what we were seeing and also pointed out interesting sites from the rivers and trails and stories, and myths of each site. We learned so much and highly recommend this tour with Ingrid. She is one of the BEST!

Our guide, Keaton, was so knowledgeable and shared so much information about the geology, the history, and the flora and fauna of the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas. We visited many viewing points along the South Rim. Since we were the only ones signed up for the tour, it was a private guided tour!
