Recently, we had the chance to stay with Don, Lorraine and Mark for two nights and an exceptional experience at the Grand Canyon. From the initial communications, through trip planning, confirming ideas for hiking, biking, kayaking and sightseeing, the entire experience was wonderful. We would do it again in a heartbeat, and probably would stay longer. My wife and I and two sons (ages 17 and 20) all enjoyed the professional and knowledgable tours and advice from Don while hiking along the South Rim and down into the Grand Canyon. We learned so much about the history of the area, the history of the Grand Canyon and the layers of rock, as well as the ecology. Don really did a great job sharing his knowledge and leading some great hiking which we loved. The camping experience itself was outstanding. The tents, beds, and bedding were so comfortable and welcome after a long active day. All the little things were there as well, flashlights if we needed them, water bottles, toiletries, towels, Don and Lorraine have thought of everything and it had a personal feel that made us feel special. As for dining, wow! Amazing breakfasts lunches and dinners that could not be any better, everything was delicious and there was plenty to eat! If you are on the fence but think you might enjoy a trip like this, my advice is to go for it, it was unforgettable and for all the right reasons. If you know you want to do a tour like this. but are not sure who you should travel with, Arizona Luxury is fantastic and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Don, Lorraine and Mark, THANK YOU! We will see you again, thank you for exceeding expectations at every turn! - The Arnold Family.
This was our first encounter with Arizona Luxury Expeditions and I really hope not our last. We had an absolutely amazing tour of the Grand Canyon with Shaun and a very memorable Glamping experience. Mark, Lorraine and Shaun made our stay a vacation of a life time. From Five star restaurant meals, prepared by Mark to a heated tent and warm bed comforters, exceptional attention to details and we were cared for like in a luxury hotel. Thank you guys for such a phenomenal time!
The folks at AZ Luxury understand and cater to your wishes for an amazing experience. Bob, Lorraine, Mark and Samuel were incredibly sensitive to our needs and expectations. They knew our expectations because they asked and delivered each and every time! Thanks Sam for the best food ever (and the S'mores!). Thanks Mark for your knowledge and expertise in the Canyon on our hikes, carrying extra beverages just in case, keeping just the right pace for us, keeping our beds firm and the fire stoked. Thanks Bob for an amazing trip through the Navajo Nation and thanks to Lorraine for being our point person. Great team, great trip. I’m going back for sure.
This was an experience of our lifetime!! The sites we visited (our first time at the Grand Canyon) were awe inspiring. Don and his family had so many truly special touches and were passionate about taking care of us. They created an adventure that leaves us feeling grateful. Thank you!!
Our group had never glamped before because we’re more into roughing it but my goodness was this a fun and unique experience. Don, Lorraine, Sam and Mark truly have a passion for what they do. Our favorite part was sitting by the campfire and talking with the other family on site and the Team. We learned so much from their tips and lived experiences. If you’re looking for a comfortable, wholesome experience of the Grand Canyon and a professional and passionate team, this is your jam. Food was on point, location was perfect, and every little detail down to flash lights and toiletries was spot on! We look forward to booking with them in other locations and doing a backpacking trip in the future!!
We spent 2 days/nights the Grand Canyon with Don, Mark, Sam, and Sean and could not have been more impressed. We're not a camping family, but wanted to get the experience - particularly in this setting - and they did not disappoint. They definitely know how to deliver on the "glam" part of it (DELCIOUS meals, a fully-loaded tent, heaters, camp fires, s'mores...every detail you need). The Grand Canyon itself is obviously spectacular, but getting an understanding of how it was formed, insights on the history and just getting off the beaten path made the trip so much more special than if we had done it alone. All of the guys are incredible - really make you feel like family and are super attentive to your needs and want you to have the best experience you possibly can. They gave us options each day for different hikes, based on our ability (and energy!). We're definitely planning a trip back to explore it even more (with them!).
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality
I dropped a nice a little penny (In my humble opinion) on this Luxury Glamping experience with Arizona Luxury Expeditions.
This review is long but I believe you all would want these deets!
I cannot recommend them enough. Due to Covid the Glamping experience was modified a bit, where we would have normally stayed in the South Rim we stayed in a nearby campsite.
We paid $1150 per night which included a guided tour of the Grand Canyon, transportation, snacks, dinner, and breakfast.
Don and his son Sam were amazing hosts and thought of EVERYTHING.
I told him it was our anniversary and they set up this beautiful overlook at sunset with 1 white and 1 red bottle of wine and a charcuterie. It was perfect and a nicely done surprise. I left everything in their hands and they completely impressed!
Both dinner and breakfast were excellent. Don's son Sam is an amazing cook. We had a filet cooked to perfection with whipped mashed potatoes and seared Brussel sprouts, again all terrific
The next morning, they served breakfast.. Yalllllllll Sam MARINATED AND SEASONED THE BACON!!! I can't even begin to describe how delicious it was.
The tent is fully decked out with rugs, chairs, toiletries, everything you could imagine you would have in a hotel minus walls
Arizona Luxury Expeditions did not disappoint one bit and if you're interested in a curated glamping and tour, they are awesome
They go all over the Arizona and Utah area. Please by all means if you decide to check them out let them know April The Contract Slayer sent ya!!
Don & Sam! You guys are the real MVP. Your hospitality & service are out of this world. From the moment Don picked us to the day that we left, the service was impeccable. There was never a need of anything because everything was well thought-out and planned. Let's not forget Sam's infamous mushroom glazed filet mignon. OMG it's do die for; so much so that I had 2 servings lol and Don's world famous apple crisp sealed the deal for me. It was only then I realized I chose the right company for this experience lol. Don & Sam, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing experience that we will cherish for a lifetime. Glamping is done right only with Arizona Luxury Expeditions!!!!
I've been on several guided tours and Arizona Luxury Expeditions is at the top of the bunch. Don packs as much as possible into the trip if you're after adventure. Or if you're more interested in a relaxing trip, you can enjoy the ultra comfortable set up of a glamping experience.
I was able to hike in and around the Grand Canyon to see many different views, bike the rim, kayak into Antelope Canyon and even spend some time shopping in the Grand Canyon Village. I have made countless, amazing memories just in one camping trip!
This vacation was my first time glamping and it will be hard to go back to regular camping again! The camp included a kitchen with Don's son, Sam, at the helm creating delectable dishes one would never think you'd get to enjoy while camping. I recommend the pesto chicken pasta! Guests have a personal dining tent to enjoy Sam's creations. The living quarters are the best part. It's essentially like having your bedroom in the woods, complete with furniture, lights, and gorgeous rugs.
As great as this set up is, be sure to get out and enjoy nature. There are many activity options and Don is great at finding out your interests and goals to mold the getaway to to your personal taste. He is also very knowledgeable about the canyon and surrounding areas and you'll really get to know Arizona's history and it's beauty much more in depth. I'm already contemplating my next trip with Arizona Luxury Expeditions this fall and I couldn't be more excited!
Incredible camping experience... Don and Samuel took great pride in what they do and addressed our every need in providing an awesome "glamping" experience at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Keeping in mind that camping comes with it's own set challenges, Arizona Luxury Expeditions knows how to temper the rough edges and provide a stress-free experience. Don is incredibly knowledgeable about the geology and history of the canyon, knows the right spots with the best views and how to avoid the busy crowds. Samuel belongs in the kitchen of a top-rated restaurant with his cooking skills, but we were glad he was with us providing 5-star dinners in our own private dining tent. Time and money well spent, we will join them again for our next adventure!
