Watching the mountain goats coming down for water. The crew pointing out different images using your imagination in the rocks. Our guide Frank taking us on a tour of the Native Plants of Arizona.

Excellent day trip. Frank was our guide. He was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful and scenic ride to the lake is about an hour but frank broke it down in a couple of stops Boat ride is very nice and it’s air conditioned. After the ride, we got a nice meal and all prices are reasonable. I would say that if you keep the prices reasonable you will always have people there. Thank you 100% satisfied

This was one of the best tours my family and I were able to go on at it really was because Brian is awesome!!! From pick up he was informative about the area, pleasant, made us all laugh. My son got a bee sting on the ferry boat and he even went to get him ice. I would definitely plan to go on another tour with this company and ask what day Brian is working!! Thanks for making our day amazing!!!

The places we visited were good but the transportation was very uncomfortable. It would be good if you could get a better shuttle van.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The 15 passenger vans we use are all newer model Ford stretch vans. We only take up to 10 passengers on them. We are sorry you didn't like your van, but most people find them comfortable and very clean.
