We just returned from our incredible adventure to the Grand Canyon. Don met us at our arrival to the park and guided us through 3 amazing days and nights. Don's knowledge about the park - from history to wildlife to geology helped us learn a ton and get so much out of our visit. He also knew all of the great hiking trails and vantage points for views, not to mention for sunset. The campground was amazing. Mark and Sam cooked us delicious meals (not easy for our finicky crew) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The whole ALE team was great company too and all took pride in ensuring that we had the best possible experience. The campfire was burning every night with chairs and blankets to help us enjoy the s'mores. We highly recommend Arizona Luxury Expeditions for families, groups or couples!!
We can’t thank the ALE team enough for our fantastic three night glamping experience at the Grand Canyon. Big thanks to Mark, Shaun and Sam! The tent was really comfortable, the food was outstanding, the hikes were really enjoyable (and pitched perfectly to our family’s capability) and the guides were knowledge and fun to be with. Mark and Shaun’s passion for The Grand Canyon is infectious! We definitely got the experience that we wanted! The kids (9 year old twins) loved it.
I can only do justice to the team at Arizona Luxury Expeditions (ALE) by fashioning this review as a thank you note. Thanks to Don, Mark, Sam and Shawn for treating our family to a vacation we will never forget. Thank you for treating us like old friends even though we had just met. Thank you for teaching us about the history of the Grand Canyon with engaging stories and personal experiences. And thank you for treating us to amazing food that I'm still not sure how you pulled off without electricity!! If you are even remotely thinking about doing this.....DO IT. My family of 4 (mom, dad and 2 boys, 11 & 9) stayed 4 nights - and we could have stayed 5! We hiked, biked, rafted and saw more of the canyon than we every could have imagined. We are a family who has never camped before but the team anticipated our every need. We had hot coffee, great food, excellent wine, hot showers, and amazing company. My boys didn't have an electronic the whole trip and didn't miss it a bit. Five star reviews are hard to come by but ALE deserves it. Don and Lorraine were extremely responsive in the planning of the trip and we felt totally prepared by the time we went. The trip was everything we were hoping for and more. I have already recommended the trip to several friends back home. We can't wait to do it again at another location.P.S. A very special thanks for getting the Elk to smile for the pictures!
My husband my 2 sons my daughter and I went here to see the Grand Canyon and we weren’t expecting it to be so amazing! Such nice guides amazing views, incredible food, really nice tents, all in all an amazing experience.
I can not speak highly enough of Don and his crew; Mark, Shawn, and Sam, surpassing all of our expectations. My 70 y.o father told me he wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I said let's do it. I was immediately overwhelmed with the task. After much research, discussion and even a travel agent, I had no idea how to put all of the locations, activities and lodging together. These gracious hosts put together the perfect bucket list trip. Do not hesitate at the price, I promise, You could pay 3x as much and never be able to recreate these breathtaking locations, quality accommodations, amazing meals, and personal service. These professionals are everything they advertise and more.
Just finished two nights of glamping with the STELLAR crew at ALE. Booking and paying for our trip was a breeze. When we landed, I received a text from Don, the owner to let us know exactly where to meet. We wasted no time and did some hiking at the Grand Canyon before we made it to camp. After sunset, we went back to camp and checked out our 5 star tent. There was EVERYTHING we needed- queen bed, heaters, snacks, water, lights- you name it. It was almost like we are at the Four Seasons or Mandarin of tents. The food was EXTRAORDINARY! Chef Mark was fantastic. We had an excellent meal for dinner and breakfast both days. I've been blessed to eat in some of the best restaurants in the world and his cooking was on par w/those places AND my friend and I are BIG eaters. There were seconds, thirds and probably fourths. and dessert...OMG incredible. We also made smores by the campfire. Breakfast was amazing too- yogurt, muffins, fruit, eggs, bacon- and the coffee- SOOOO GOOD!!!
The GC!! WOW! Don and his staff knew EVERYTHING about the canyon. Took us to places we would NEVER have found. We literally started at 9:30am and got back to camp at 6pm. Our experience with ALE was tremendous and highly recommended. ALE was top notch and I highly recommend them to everyone! Thank you Don, Mark and Sean for making our trip to the Grand Canyon so special!
My family stayed 2 nights with Arizona Luxury Expeditions and had an amazing time. Don and Lorraine run a top notch operation. The accommodations were great! They catered to our every need and cooked every meal to perfection. Who knew you could eat gourmet meals at a campsite! They even catered to our 10 and 7 year old sons-Sam made sure they were never without hot chocolate with the perfect amount of whipped cream!
I can’t say enough about our wonderful guide Mark! He took us on 2 days full of adventures and made sure we were prepared with snacks and water. His knowledge of the area was impressive. He pointed out numerous things along each hike that we never would have seen on our own. We got to see his favorite spots off the beaten track too! I recommend anyone planning a trip to the Grand Canyon should definitely check out AZ luxury expeditions for a once in a lifetime experience! Although we hope to make it twice in a Lifetime and check out some of the other locations they service!
We had an amazing experience! we stayed in a hogan and could not believe the reception! Mark and Don had a wonderful tent with a great meal, we had a great night's sleep in a hogan. The following day we rode horses after an amazing breakfast. Thank you!
DO IT! We did and were very happy that we did. First you cannot have better hosts than Don, Lorraine and Mark. You may go in as clients but will definitely leave as friends.They are very down to earth genuine people. Truly knowledgeable, care about the earth, the area they expose you to and do their best to be welcoming, accommodating and helpful. We stayed four nights at their camp and went on daily hikes and excursions. The guidance on the treks, explanation of the geology, history, the flora and fauna itself was worth it. They are professional and very capable of adjusting the experience to the clients ability. You always feel safe and within your limits without being managed or controlled.
The food is exceptional, truly so. The helpings large and the service top. If you have never camped than this is a great start. Now, this is true camping unlike in Africa where there are permanent structures made to look like camps! Go with the spirit of adventure, let them help you make the itinerary and go with the flow. Will I be back? You bet!
Don, Lorraine & Mark as well as GLAMPING at the Grand Canyon made our 21st Wedding Anniversary an experience of a lifetime! They all were wonderful host, accommodating our every need & adding special touches to our trip personalizing it as much as we wanted. We will always remember the beautiful sunset location they found for us to toast our anniversary, the amazing anniversary dinner they made for us, our Grandview hike, hot AM coffee with a smile & of course our glamorous tent had everything we needed! THANK YOU! We will see you again either in Colorado or Utah!
