Amazed at the wonder of the Grand Canyon!
, May 2022
What an amazing time! John really took a lot of time explaining next steps and how the day would go! Did the sunset tour which was amazing to see the canyon at different times!
Hike of a life time
, May 2022
Jon was amazing for the half day tour. Taught us how to gear up and how to use the all important walking poles( believe me the poles make a huge difference). Great start of the day, a nice pace for us, was probably a lot slower because we have not hiked in years. Jon is very skilled in making a wonderful lunch and photography also. Some really great photos of our day. Most definitely one of my greatest days and a check off my bucket list. Very Happy Hiker!
Highlight of my Trip
, Apr 2022
This tour is not to be missed - definitely one of the best I've done through Viator. Jon was prompt and organized; he had our backpacks ready and filled with snacks and water for the day. Both of us learned the proper technique for using hiking poles - they were essential going down and walking back up again. Lunch was amazing...he made chicken/veggie wraps on the trail! I have so many amazing photos too - this hike was the highlight of my trip.

Thanks so much for the amazing review. I also got some great pics of your trip and I'm so glad you enjoyed lunch. I had a great time hiking with you too. Greatly appreciated, Jon
Best hike ever!
, Apr 2022
John was an amazing guide. We have done a lot of hiking and this was our first guided trip. He taught us about the canyon and hiking best practices (we learned the correct way to use hiking poles and it was excellent.) We greatly enjoyed his company and the lunch was the best I have every had on a hike, and we do box lunches regularly. He also had the ability to tailor the hike to the experience and capability of our group. Even my 2 teenage sons loved having John as our guide, (the snacks didn't hurt.) Finally, my finacee proposed on this hike and schemed with John to plan it all out. Thanks so much!

Congrats on getting married soon and I'm so glad the proposal went amazing. That would have been an awkward hike out had you said no. Your kids are in amazing shape by the way. Thanks for the unforgettable day. Greatly appreciated, Jon

I would just like to say...
, Apr 2022
I would just like to say that I never write reviews, but this I belive needs one. I didnt know what to expect when I booked Grand Canyon hiking tour, John showed up on time, he was very informative, explained every step of the way. Backpacks were full of snacks and water. Once we got down about 2.5 miles into the Canyon he prepared lunch for our group. The views were spectacular, Would highly recommend John

Thanks so much for enjoying the day with me and I know we got some great pictures. Spending the day in the canyon with you was a great adventure. You all did great on the uphill and really used your poles. Thanks again, greatly appreciated, Jon
Magical experience
, Apr 2022
John and Evan were both excellent guides. We were a family of 10, with 6 adults and 4 children, ranging in age from 4 yrs old to 11 yrs old. John and Evan were professional, knowledgeable, and patient throughout the hike. Their knowledge of the history and details of the Grand Canyon made our experience all the more enjoyable. We especially wanted our grandchildren to experience this national treasure, and we got exactly what we wanted. John provided back packs, water, gatorade, snacks, and lunch for everyone, so we could focus on enjoying our hike. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore the Grand Canyon.

Thanks for the great review. I really enjoyed how you kept getting stuck behind because the views and pictures were blowing your mind. The kids all did amazing and I'm so glad you enjoyed our famous lunch. Thanks again, Jon
An unforgettable experience

John took great care of our family. He took us on an incredible hike and kept us informed on what was next the whole way through. He provided perfect snacks, and plenty of water and Gatorade. Lunch was fresh and tasted amazing. Don’t hesitant to book a trip with him. He’s highly experienced and will take great care of you!

Highly recommend John. A perfect day.

We had an awesome time with John. He has a plan but is quickly ready to adapt to any client needs. He thinks of everything. He prepared a terrific lunch, brought us plenty of fluids, and his snack bag is next level. We plan to use him again.

Thanks for the amazing review. I had as much fun as you all and I'm so glad the weather was amazing. I know you got some giant panoramic photos. Enjoy! Thanks again, Jon
Only Grand Canyon Only Way to Go
, Mar 2022
We do not usually hire a guide or sign up for a tour when traveling but we’re so happy we did this time. John was phenomenal, super supportive in the face of a fear of heights, and really knowledgeable. We learned a lot from him and really enjoyed the hike!

I think you fear of heights is conquered! You did amazing and we really went far down that canyon. Thanks again, Jon
Epic Family Hike at the Grand Canyon!
, Mar 2022
The best part of our experience was that We didn’t have to worry about ANYTHING and because of that we enjoyed EVERYTHING! John was prepared, knowledgeable and truly cared about making this a day our family would never forget. We were are a party of 5 traveling with our 8 year old and 11 year old children as well as our 15 year old niece. We were concerned about safety, about making sure the hike was challenging enough to be a fun experience but something that we could all experience together. John had us covered in every possible way. We had the best gear, the best guidance and hands down the best lunch we could ask for. I can’t recommend hiring John enough. This is the way you want to experience the Grand Canyon! This was a day that we will never forget!
