We took your VIP Grand Canyon tour on May 6, 2010. Dwayne was our guide. We had a wonderful trip, exceeding our expectations! Keep up the great work. We definitely will recommend you. Thanks again! ~ Janet B.


Good Morning

I just want to send you a note to tell you about our tour yesterday from Sedona to the Grand Canyon. As soon as your van pulled up I knew we had made the right choice, that was definitely the way to go. The comfort and the space were great. The trip itself was wonderful we encountered all sorts of weather but just pressed on. For a man from Southern California, the snow and cold were really different but wonderful. But, the very best part of the entire trip was our driver and guide Duane. His knowledge of the area made the trip that much more memorable. The little stops he made to describe things along the way were just very special. Thank you to you a and your staff and especially Duane for making our trip to Grand Canyon one we will remember for ages. ~ Steve C.


We went on the tour last week on vacation. We both teach so are extremely interested in the history part of everything. We had Carl for our tour guide and he was just wonderful!!! We had snow, sun, wind and cold. He made us feel safe through all driving conditions. The food was fabulous!

Carl’s excitement about the scenery, country and history made every minute exciting about the tour. We would recommend this tour and Carl to anyone!! Thank you again Carl! ~ Mary Lou & John K.


Mike,

I would like to thank you and Silver Spur tours for a great trip to the Grand Canyon yesterday, March 22. Dwayne was a wonderful wealth of information and gave a great tour. You could tell he has a passion for the trip and your tour company. He was first class all the way went out of the way to make our trip pleasurable and the maximum amount of time at the Canyon. The food was excellent and the van was extremely comfortable and very open to the scenery.

We would recommend your company to anyone and when we return to the Arizona area [likely next year] we will be sure to book a tour with you.

Thanks again. It is refreshing to see a company doing such a great job to make the customer feel comfortable and the number one priority. ~ Don M.


We took the Grand Canyon tour from Sedona on March 11, 2010. Our guide Duane went above and beyond. His knowledge was amazing along with his great wit. It was one of the best tours We’ve been on and was worth every penny. Thank you Silver Spur. ~ Rob K.


We had a great time with “Crazy Carl”, our tour guide, at the Grand Canyon. He is very knowledgeable on the history of Sedona and surrounding areas, the people, and geography. The tour itself was well planned with frequent stops for stretching our legs and taking in the views.

The vehicle was extremely comfortable, not crowded, and a gourmet lunch was provided. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a pleasant day exploring the Grand Canyon! ~ Rishi & Vinaya B.


We recently returned to the “Great White North”…(Edmonton, Alberta) after spending time in Arizona. Out hi-light without a doubt, was our tour of the Grande Canyon. The Mercedes was everything as promised as well as the refreshments and lunch.

Carl, (our driver) was professional and knowledgeable answering our questions with enthusiasm as if he’d heard the question for the first time. How he managed to arrange the weather (which was perfect) is still beyond us. Would we recommend Silver Spur Tours to others..absolutely, without hesitation!!

Thank you Silver Spur Tours and please once again pass along our sincere thanks to Carl for making our day “picture” perfect. GREAT JOB !!!!! ~ Eric & Pam C.


This was a great tour. We liked the fact that we had our own time, but we also had a guide that knew what he was doing. The touring van was so comfortable. I would recommend this so everyone. Thank you Thomas for a great trip. ~ Richard A.

My friend, Suzanne Girouard, and I were guests of Silver Spur Tours on Tues, 10/13/09… What a luxurious ride! Thomas was our host. My compliments to him… he was pleasant, interesting, & knowledgeable. He kept us moving along yet NEVER pushed us. Thanks, Thomas, for everything! ~ Patricia C.


Dear Mike, Larry, Thomas and Sharon:

I can’t tell you how much my group appreciated the personal attention we received by you, Larry, Thomas and Sharon. By the end of vacation, we felt like family. Our guided tours of Sedona by Larry and the Grand Canyon by Thomas were both experiences that none of us will forget. The knowledge and true admiration of their surroundings during our tours made our trip truly unforgettable and amazing. You have created a wonderful service that I will recommend to everyone. Thanks for an amazing vacation. ~ The Girls From PA


My husband and I were fortunate enough to take your van tour from Sedona to the South rim of the Grand Canyon on Wed. 9/16/09. We had a great time thanks to your driver and guide Larry. Larry made the trip very enjoyable and his knowledge and pleasant disposition were greatly appreciated. I would also like to mention your bistro sandwiches were very good and I’m now using your water containers daily as I attend the gym. Thank you for adding additional enjoyment to our Sedona vacation. ~ Lydia H.


Just wanted to thank you and our tour guide Larry for a wonderful VIP tour to the Grand Canyon. Larry had so much knowledge of the area that he really made our beautiful day all the more special. We can’t believe how much we toured in just one day. We could never have done it all on our own in one day. Wishing you all at Silver Spur Tours much continued success! ~Bill & Doreen H.


My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Silver Spur Tours. We usually try to see places on our own but decided to try a tour and we were glad we did. We were very pleased with our Magical Day in Sedona tour with Paul and Vic. So pleased that we called right after the tour and requested them for our Grand Canyon tour. We were able to get Vic and had a new driver Dwayne. They were both great and again we were absolutely pleased. We will recommend Silver Spur Tours to everyone—what a pleasant experience. ~ J & P Giomini


Silver Spur,

We were picked up at our hotel, Sedona Real, today, May 2nd for our scheduled tour. We were greeted by Thomas for our day trip to the Grand Canyon. From the moment we boarded until the moment we were returned to the hotel, I cannot stress enough what a wonderful experience we had. Thomas was the best tour guide we have ever had. His subject knowledge was amazing and the interaction we had with him was so enjoyable. You are fortunate to have him as a representative of Silver Spur Tours. We immediately let our concierge know of our great experience and encouraged her to promote your services to all their guests. Again, thank you for making our first trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon so memorable.

Good Morning,

I just wanted to send along a quick note to let you know how much my family enjoyed our recent experience with Silver Spurs. We booked the Grand Canyon tour on Wednesday, April 22nd from Sedona. Dwayne was our tour guide and we had 6 in our party. It was truly a memorable trip. We celebrated my Mom’s 80th birthday with the Grand Canyon as the background it was very special for us. Dwayne was amazing, attentive, and very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. We could not have asked for a better way to experience the Grand Canyon for the first time. Thank you so, so much. Please give our best to him. We will certainly recommend Silver Spurs to our friends and look forward to visiting Arizona again in the future.
~ K. Rowland


Awesome! Over the Top! Beyond our Expectations! My wife and I took the VIP Loop Tour to the Grand Canyon and we were so amazed by every part of it. Our tour host, Thomas, was an experienced guide with a wealth of knowledge. We were provided with a very nice water bottle, a cooler with all sorts of goodies, along with a picnic lunch. The touring van was lush, with individual captain seats and brand new. Everything about this tour was exceptional and above the norm. Highly recommended!!!!!! ~ Rob Reid, Barrie, Ontario, Canada.


My husband and I went on your  Sedona Grand Canyon Loop Tour on 4-16-09. Dwayne was a great guide, very enthusiastic, had a good sense of humor, and was a never ending source of knowledge. We would never hesitate to recommend this tour to family and friends. Thanks for a great experience. ~ Don & Rosemary Januszyk


We had an awesome time on our luxurious Sedona Magical Day Tour co-hosted by both Carl and Duane on 4/17/09. The views were spectacular and breathtaking. The hosts were very knowledgeable and gave us so much information I believe we would never have become so well informed if we lived here our entire lives. The meal and treats were high quality and delicious. I am a CPA and I have to tell you this trips was worth far more than its reasonable cost. We will be back for more visits , including the grand canyon trip and Flagstaff the next time we are in the neighborhood. Thank you for making our trip to Sedona memorable forever. ~ Jim & Linda Repp, Wisconsin


Thanks for the great tour! My kids and I had an awesome time, and we can’t say enough about how this tour exceeded our expectations. “Your guide” was awesome, and my kids (ages 10 and 13) are still talking about our great trip. Keep up the great work! We will be sure to recommend Silver Spur Tours. ~ Tim


We were visiting from Reno, Nevada and decided to take the VIP Grand Canyon tour on Friday, March 20, 2009. Our tour guide was Carl. By chance, we were the only couple booked on the trip. Therefore, it felt like a personal tour with Carl – which was not a bad deal at all.

We enjoyed the trip thoroughly. We did notice the difference you speak of when having college-educated, experienced guides. Carl was able to give us a abridged but very informative history of the Grand Canyon area and explain to us all sort of fascinating technical and scientific discoveries about the Canyon.

The bus was impeccable and the items in the bistro bag were delicious. They are unique items not offered by other tours.

Thanks once again for a wonderful and memorable tour. ~ Happy From Reno


Last Saturday Carl gave us the tour of the life time of the Grand Canyon. We had a BALL!! I will recommend this tour to friends and family. Thanks for the luxury van and delicious Gourmet Bistro Bag! ~ Anonymous


Thank you Silver Spurs for a spectacular tour! We had a fantastic time from beginning to end, due to the spectacular sites and the customized tour from our wonderful and highly entertaining guide. “Crazy Carl,” we will be back again! Thanks for a great tour! ~ Anonymous


We have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world, but sitting at the Grand Canyon and eating our Gourmet items in the Bistro Bag was one of the best meals we have ever had. ~ Martin and Lois Evans


We couldn’t be more pleased with Esther our tour guide, she did a great job and the service we were provided by Silver Spur could not have been any better, we plan to spread the word about your excellent tours back down under in our homeland of Australia. ~ Michael and Linda Bethel


Husband Chuck and I, along with another Chuck and Paula, went on your Grand Canyon tour yesterday. Ryan was great, lots of area information, good food, lots of laughs. Left our positive feedback with the Hilton for future customers. Thanks again. Will look for your wines. ~ Barb and Chuck Danek


My wife and I recently (Jan 10th) took your VIP tour to the Grand Canyon with your knowledgeable guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour. My wife and I have lived and traveled all over the world and this tour was the best and most informative one that we have ever had. His geological and historical knowledge was impressive and the service was excellent. I will not hesitate to recommend your tours to anybody I hear of heading to the Grand Canyon in the future. I should also note that your guide gave us several other route recommendations for trips in the area and on our return to the Las Vegas area for departure. All trips turned out great and we would not have known about them except for his input. Really great operation! Regards, ~ All the best,
Aubrey Dobbs and Jackie Black


We just wanted to drop a note and tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed our grand canyon tour on Sunday, November 30th. Ryan was accommodating, knowledgeable and entertaining. My family couldn’t stop talking about the excellent time they had on the trip. Thanks and keep up the good work. ~ Roland Krebs


We had a wonderful time! The vehicle is very impressive (and we have been in many vehicles!!) and very cozy! The amenities and gift bags add a wonderful touch that we know would impress our guests. The knowledge was great especially when the guides used familiar names and topics in stories that people from all over can recognize or relate to. We loved the stops at the vineyards and being able to support the local vendors, but would have really enjoyed a little bit more of Tlaquepaque instead! Oh and we LOVED the chocolates!!!!!

“Mike, We spent a fantastic day on the Grand Canyon VIP Tour on Nov 7th. Everything about the tour was wonderful. The guide’s knowledge of the Canyon, area, and people was exceptional. The Grand Canyon just takes your breath away when one first sets eyes upon it and your service made that experience even better.
