The Perfect Sunset
Carleen_R

The most memorable part of the tour was seeing the sun set from a beautiful vantage spot on the Sourh Rim of the Grand Canyon. What a joy! Shelia was an excellent guide who shared so much knowledge, really enhancing our experience!! She knew exactly when to guide and when to give us some time to just quietly marvel at the wonder of the canyon and surrounding forest. I highly recommend this tour and Shelia as your guide!
