Luke was an excellent tour guide. He was kind, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be around. He seemed to enjoy the experience as much as we did! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone seeking an insightful and enjoyable experience at the Grand Canyon.

It was a great tour Luke was our tour guide. He was a very knowledgable guy. You can tell he loved what he did. I really enjoyed it very much.

I really love Canyon Ministries and the love they have for others in accommodating families with special needs children. I'm truly thankful for them and recommend them to anyone wanting to visit places with a company that understands. I really appreciate how they picked us up from our hotel and how our tour guide shared his amazing testimony on how he became born again after being an atheist throughout childhood and early adulthood. The trip itself was comfortable and so nice to see the Grand Canyon, Indian ruins and sunset volcano all in one day. It was a truly memorable experience for us and we appreciate our tour guide taking pictures of our family for us at each spot as well. Thank you Canyon Ministries and praise God for such a blessing!

I wanted to love this tour, but I didn’t. It takes a certain energetic personality to be a good tour guide, especially on a full day trip. Our tour guide was a lovely person, but he just did not have the skillset needed to give an engaging, full day tour. The ride there was an excruciating hour and half of what came across as a monotone sermon. Kids were bored and so were at least some of the adults. At the Canyon, I did not feel the creation story was told effectively, and I was disappointed in the way some things were said. The place we stopped for lunch was crowded and we had to wait a long time to get what turned out to be really bad food. At the remaining stops, the tour guide did not give us much, if any, information and background on them. All in all, I think it comes down to what you are looking for in a tour. Perhaps others would feel differently, but I cannot recommend this tour based on my experience.

The tour was fantastic! Our guide, Eddy had a wonderful testimony and we learned a lot about God's amazing creation through catastrophic events.

kathybJ1471VZ

Eddy Bessler was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He gave us a new Biblical perspective on the formation of the Grand Canyon, Desert View and Wupatki monument, Sunset Crater monument. We asked tons of questions (sometimes x2) and he was so patient. He always gave us the Biblical view and scriptural references. He pointed out the difference in rock stratification. I would do it again! I've already referred friends to this tour.

Luke was amazing and spiritually sound. He was funny, personable, knowledgable, interactive, considerate and well rounded. Always honoring God and leading us to examine our own understanding. Would recommend to anyone. Scenery was amazing, unable to put into words. Cost was reasonable and we were well taken care of.

Kasaroo82

This experience was amazing. We learned so much scientifically and biblically. The tour was go with the flow and relaxed with biblical teachings periodically. Our tour guide, Bruce, was incredibly knowledgeable and anointed to teach the Word of God. The kids were a little tired by the last two attractions but it was still 100% worth it. The bus was comfortable and we didn’t have to worry about gps and just took in the sights!

Nothing was mentioned about the events of Genesis 10–11 and migration from Babel to the Americas. It seemed like we were getting minimal information without good explanation of where we were and what we were seeing. (The same information was repeated several times). We felt there was much more that could have been covered. The Sunset Rim tour the evening before (with Luke) was wonderful and we got much more information in 4 hours than the 10 hours with Eddie. Eddie is very nice and maybe If we hadn't done the 4 hr Sunset rim, we wouldn't have known what we were missing. However, he also neglected to provide helpful information, leaving us to feel left in the dark when going from place to place. Half of us ended up eating a "rushed meal" at a "snack stop" unaware we would eat lunch at a nice restaurant within the hour. Also, it may have been different had we not had another couple with us that he spent a lot of time talking to.(It may have been very different had it just been our group)?? I am just very thankful we did the sunset tour so my grand kids did still get a lot from our visit overall. Unfortunately, I do think we were left with gaps in our understanding by not getting the in-depth education the second day. I was looking forward to the kids learning about "Babel.

The trip was amazing! Eddy did a fantastic job of explaining how the Grand Canyon came to be from a biblical lens while using science in a way that we could all understand. He also shared his story and testimony which helped explain his purpose and how God prepared him throughout his life to be a tour guide. He was very accommodating and wanted to make sure that everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. If anyone is coming to this part of the country, I will be telling them about Canyon Ministries!
