I give personal private tours of the Grand Canyon from Williams, Arizona. I only do small groups and it's a full day. I've been doing these tours for over 20 years and have lived here all my life. No one knows more of this fantastic place than me, so give me a try!

Don't try the Grand Canyon on your own or it could be a shallow experience. Marvelous Marv's trip to the south rim provides an insight into the geology, the culture, the beauty, the respect, and the secrets of the Canyon that you can only experience through a Canyon master. Certainly if you want to go there to say you've been... More

Can't say enough about the Duet of Marv and Maggie. They picked us up at our hotel, on time and spent the day providing great information. Our tour began with a history lesson of Williams. Maggie explained the technical information of how the Canyon was formed (more than we could remember). The tour allowed us to bypass the normal tourist... More

Thank goodness we picked Marv to tour the Grand Canyon. As first timers to this magical place we were put in the hands of a very knowledgeable guy with a quirky sense of humour. We had so much fun and learnt so much in one day. Plus Marv does all the driving and parking. He was even good taking snaps... More

We were picked up right at our camping sight and began the day with a happy and knowledgable guide. His personalality along with his knowledge of the Grand Canyon and areas around would surpass anyone. An enjoyable day that felt like spending with a friend. Keeping ahead of the crowds but still taking us to the best vantage points and... More

Found business on Google search. Mostly great reviews and we found out why. Picked us up right at our campsite. 1 hour drive with info on local area. Started at best spot,as they knew rush was coming there later. Informative. Comfortable riding in van. Safety was stressed. Suggested lunch,that was good. Well spent 6 hours.

Marv is a wonderful tour guide. He picked us up at the visitor's center in Williams and as soon as we got in the van, he was describing the area around as, including what trees are in the area, animals, etc... During the entire ride to the canyon, Marv told us many geological facts and informed us about the various... More

Magnificent Maggie was our guide and she was excellent. My wife and I had booked this tour months ago and had been looking forward it very much. We were not disappointed and would recommend this tour to any visitor to the Grand Canyon who wants to maximise the experience and understanding. An awesome place and an awesome experience. Thanks Maggie!

This was the best $125 per person- I've spent on this whole vacation! Marv was the most thoughtful tour guide I could have asked for. He designed our whole day around my husband who is diabetic and not able to walk far distances. He made sure we drank water and gave us plenty of time to sit and talk to... More

We had a great time on our tour with marvelous marv. He was extremely knowledgeable about all things Grand Canyon and was able to show us around and hit all the highlights. There is so much we would have missed if not for him. He was very patient with our kids (11 and 9) and answered questions all day long.... More
