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!
I was a little hesitant to book with Arizona Luxury Expiditions. I have never been glamping before. I am so glad that I did. This trip was awesome. My wife and tree kids spent three days with Don and crew. They took care of everything! The campground was great, the food was sectacular, and they were super knowledgable about everything. We spent one day on a float trip and Antelope Canyon in Page. I highly recommend adding that to your trip. The other two days were spent hiking and seeing the sights at the Grand Canyon. They know all the best spots to get away from the crowds. We can't wait to book with Don again! Don't miss out on having the time of your life!
Our family of four (two boys, age 12 and 9) stayed overnight with A.L.E. at the Grand Canyon. It was the most we’ve ever spent on one night of accommodations...and it was worth every penny! Can’t say enough about the incredible service Don, Lorraine, and their team provide at every turn. Don is very knowledgeable and we learned a ton about the canyon during our hikes with him. The campsite setup is awesome. Delicious, luxurious dinner served in the unforgettable setting of a decked-out private, heated dining tent with table cloth and all the trimmings. Private sleeping tent with a wall to wall rug, beds, and more amenities and conveniences than we even took time to look through. Campfire all evening and again in the morning, with comfortable chairs and anything we wanted to drink. In short, there isn’t a detail that Don and Lorraine haven’t thought of. And, if you were to find one, they are the type of people who would make it happen for you. We highly recommend the A.L.E. experience — we’ll never forget it.
We had one of our best family vacations with Arizona Luxury Expeditions! Don and Sam made our trip unforgettable. We did the the Northern Arizona/Utah glamping. We hiked the Northern rim of the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, & Horseshoe Bend. Don knew what trails to hike and took us to the best locations for amazing views of the canyon. His knowledge of the canyons and surrounding area was great!
Camp was set on a beautiful ranch in Kanab Utah. It was well set up and we had everything we needed. We had delicious meals prepared by his son Sam. Which we looked forward to after hiking the canyons during the day and each morning.
I would highly recommend Arizona Luxury Expeditions!!
We had a great 3 nights with ALE at Grand Canyon. They truly do everything for you -- cooking, cleanup, logistics, troubleshooting, etc. Mark is an expert guide, focusing first and foremost on safety and comfort. He is a fount of knowledge and has an inexhaustible set of stories and details about geography, trees and foliage, history, etc. He was also incredibly solicitous. Sean is a Marine veteran who is one of those people who just loves to be out in nature and share his infectious enthusiasm with everyone around him. Lorraine is an excellent cook and organizer, and made us feel like family. If you want the camping experience, but don't want to deal with the million things that you have to deal with when you camp, so you can maximize your time hiking, biking, and sightseeing, this is the group for you. The services for something like this are important, but secondary to the people, because you spend so much time with them. Here, we really liked the people.
We loved our glamping experience! We went with our two girls (6&8) and really enjoyed doing something different.
The food was fantastic ! The tents/beds/site very comfortable!
Don is so knowledgeable about all things Arizona, Native Americans, Grand Canyon , etc etc. Attentive and thoughtful.
Highly recommend this experience .
We loved our glamping experience in Grand Canyon! We have gone camping in the past, but the luxury camping provided by Arizona Luxury Expedition Tours was a treat. The staff is attentive, friendly and accommodating. Lorraine and Don provided everything we needed for an amazing vacation. The tents were all set up for us upon arrival and the beds were so comfy. The dining tents had great atmosphere and the homemade delicious meals made fresh each day were amazing and plentiful. The fun nightly community campfires had comfortable chairs with homemade s’mores & brownies and spirits too. Even for May we got some cold nights, but the staff made sure we had enough blankets and the tent heater was on each night prior to us retiring for the night. The heated showers and bathrooms were close by, very clean and the staff provided everything we needed to wash up. We had a great time hiking down the Grand Canyon and our tour guide Don was very informative and patient with us inexperienced hikers. Thanks to Lorraine’s help with extra activities and recommendations we were also able to enjoy rafting down the Colorado River, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Sedona. Highly recommend the Arizona Luxury Expedition Tours and we can’t wait to go back!
If you have a few days at the Grand Canyon, stay with Arizona Luxury Expeditions and let them plan the details. We spend 4 nights with them. Fully equipped and heated tents, amazing food, great people, and the best memories from all the day trips and hikes. They also took us to Monument Valley and Antelope Canyon. I just lack the words to describe this amazing experience - it will be one of the great experiences of your lifetime.
ALE, thank you for everything,
Tobias (with Kia, Natasha, Nina, Ivo & Kai)
Our experience with Arizona Luxury Expeditions was unprecedented. My boyfriend and I were planning a weekend at the Grand Canyon and Amex had recommended ALE and from our first interaction discussing the initial details with Don, he was friendly and helpful. We arrived Friday at 1pm and Don took us to our first view of the Canyon and was extremely knowledgable about the history, geology, flora, fauna, etc. He made the tour a highly informative experience. We also did a short hike on Bright Angel Trail and a prickly pear margarita at El Tovar Lounge. He then took us to various landmarks and look out points for sunset. We arrived to the camp which was a well-executed compound. Don and his team had thought of everything, not a detail was missed. They had a fire pit going and poured us wine while we waiting for our first gourmet meal prepared by Mark. We had our own private dining tent fitted with table cloths, silverware, heaters, music, and Mark served fresh bread and butter, brook trout, fresh green beans, and a flavorful rice pilaf. All were restaurant quality and delicious. This was followed by a cast iron skillet brownie and ice cream. Overall the food and service were impeccable and we were highly impressed. Wine was flowing and we were able to enjoy a private dinner followed by some alone time by the fire. Our sleeping tent was roomy and warm and they had provided a large air mattress, lots of blankets, a seating area, towels, and bathroom necessities. Flashlights, chargers, etc - all the modern conveniences as well.
The next day we awoke to a huge gourmet breakfast including coffee, juice, yogurt, granola, fruit, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, sausage - food galore. We were definitely ready to start our day, as we embarked on a bike tour to Hermit’s rest. We then got ready to do the helicopter tour, the operator recommended by Don. Highly recommend the splurge for the helicopter as it is a vantage point you do not want to miss.
This trip was particularly special for my boyfriend and I as he had planned a surprise proposal that Don and Mark had organized! They picked an amazing and secluded spot for him to pop the question and had a fantastic bottle of champagne as well as cheese and charcuterie ready for us at the edge of the cliff. They captured this special moment and we are extremely grateful. They then planned a special dinner including filet mignon and a special “wedding” cake dessert. Truly impressive.
Overall, Don and team went above and beyond to make this trip the most unforgettable experience for us. Our every wish was catered to, beyond imagination. Being a worldly traveler and staying at some unbelievable 5 star properties, this was truly one of the most catered to and thought after experiences of our lives.
You cannot go wrong with this team, they are highly-skilled professionals who work tirelessly to provide for their guests.
Bravo to ALE!!
