Sheila was outstanding. We loved every minute. The only thing we found missing was time to see more sites and walk along the rim. Fortunately we did that the day before so the tour capped a wonderful time at the Canyon

We had a wonderful time with Werner as our guide. He was so informative and had a lot of stories and pictures to share. It was a very windy day which made getting near the edge a little scary but Werner kept us safe. I would highly recommend this tour. Going through the forest was an added benefit that you won’t get from the other tour companies. We even saw wild horses. It was a morning well spent!
