We returned home yesterday (Friday, July 21) at 10:00PM. We were exhausted but happy. Your tour was the best tour we had on our trip and that included tours at Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. My grandchildren thought you were the best thing since peanut butter. Thank you so much for making our grand canyon trip so memorable and giving us such valuable information about the history of the canyon. You truly are marvelous.
Marv and Maggie were amazing! They are both full of knowledge about every aspect of the Grand Canyon. They provide information about the geology, the wildlife, the culture and more. They know the best places to go and beat the rush, they know all the spots for great picture opportunities, and share their wealth of knowledge along the way. It was a marvelous tour, Marv and Maggie are amazing people, and everyone on our tour had an amazing time!
We went on Marv and Maggie’s tour last week. I was a bit nervous as I booked this for 7 members of my family ranging in age from 74-21 and wondered if it would be appreciated and enjoyed by them all. The answer… YES! This is the only way to see the Grand Canyon. You start learning things from Marv and Maggie as soon as you enter their bright orange comfy van... If we had done this on our own we would not have fully absorbed the rich history of this magnificent place, we would have spent most of our day fumbling around from parking lot to parking lot following the crowds. Marv and Magpie know how to avoid the crowds and truly made this an experience none of us will ever forget!
There are a lot of ways to tour the canyon, but Marv and Maggie know how to get you to places where there aren’t the crowds, and when in the crowded areas, they know how to maneuver around everything.They are both so knowledgeable and make the learning experience really fun !! There’s nothing like a local person to show an area as magnificent as the Grand Canyon! I can’t recommend them enough !!
Marv is a great tour guide. He has lived in the area for a lot of years and is extremely knowledgable of the Canyon as well as the land, the people and the history’s around it. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
I would highly recommend this tour! We had another couple from Austria on the same booking and everyone was extremely pleased with it. Avoid the 5 hours on the train or long lines of cars and crowded busses. Call Marvelous Marv!
