Dwayne was personable, friendly and knowledgeable. His touring van was super comfortable and equipped with all the snacks, water and blankets you'd need. We travelled with our elderly parents and even though the road was long and the landscape harsh, they were comfortable throughout, and had the time of their lives. Dwayne also made it a point to find out what we were interested in and was happy to explore sights that were not on the itinerary if they were on the way (and he had some excellent suggestions). Our expectations were exceeded throughout, and we still reminisce about our wonderful time in Arizona.
Comfortable travel, knowledgeable guide, great lunch, visited spectacular views, individualized for our group of 4. Wonderful experience, highly recommend!
