But Canyon Dave wasn't satisfied...

    "Wait a minute," he said. "This is a World Wonder! It deserves a tour that reveals its origins, its history, its depth and majesty. I must create a tour that explains how the canyon was carved into this flat landscape. A tour that explains how and when it was discovered. This tour must be enriching and fun!"

   Sitting near the edge of the abyss, he thought and thought about how to design such a tour. "Briefly, how can I help them understand the stories of the rock layers? How will they glimpse the march of time through the ages? What are the highlights of the Grand Canyon's rich history?"

His answer: the

Pat McD. said:
First timers on bucket list trip! Keaton was a great guide! This was a perfect one day trip. He knew just how to keep us out of traffic and people jams. We saw all of the South Rim overlooks and heard his concise historical, archeological, and geological comments and learned a great deal! He was patient with us older and slower visitors and was very accommodating! Highly recommend this tour!

AJ H. said:
Fantastic Tour of the Grand Canyon. Greatly recommend! This tour was absolutely amazing and 100% worth every penny! Leo and Emmi were wonderful guides. Even our lunch was fabulous. Leo is an incredible vault of knowledge. They were both very proud to work for Canyon Dave. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Canyon for the first time.
