We couldn't have asked for a better tour of the Grand Canyon! We were visiting from the west coast and it was great to have the small bus pick us up at the Grand Hotel where we were staying. Our tour was just 8 people and our guide Zack greeted each of us individually and continued to have a friendly, professional demeanor throughout our SIX hours together! He made conversation as we entered the park and provided us with cold water and soda, as well as sunscreen and ponchos for when it began raining later on - thank goodness they provided us with all the necessary things we forgot!
Zack drove us around the southern and eastern rim, stopping along the way at multiple lookouts. At each stop, he provided us with a wealth of information, answered all of our questions and gave us several options as to how we could spend the next half hour. He brought a telescope and would position it so we could see mine shaft entrances, the river, rock formations, etc. Zack covered everything from history to geology to hiking information to facts about the Canyon.
Lunch was delightful as well - an assortment of cold cut sandwiches, huge fresh fruit platter, cookies, chips and sodas. Even when it began raining, Zack continued to stay positive and upbeat, which made us enjoy the Canyon just as much as when it was sunny! Finally, on our way back, when we spotted deer on the side of the road, he stopped the bus, turned around and let us snap pictures and ask questions.
Thanks Angel's Gate and Zack for a great visit for our family! If you're visiting the Canyon, definitely go with on a tour and definitely go with Angel's Gate!
