Perfect Glamping Experience My first experience "glamping" and it was more than I could have hoped for. Don is a fantasti guide, very knowledgeable about the area. Chef Sam did a spectacular job for every meal. I have never had such a personalized vacation; I did not want to leave! Because I was the only guest for my entire visit I invited Don and Sam and Lorraine to join me in their dining tent for meals and then around the fire in the evening. They are three of the nicest people I have ever met. They will see me again and again!

Unforgettable family vacation This was one of our family’s best vacations so far! We spent 3 nights in one of Don’s beautiful, spacious, 5 person tents. My family of 5 (kids ages 13, 11, 10) had more than enough room inside of the tent, which included a queen bed and 3 single beds. The flannel sheets, wool blankets and heater kept us warm all night despite temps dropping into the low 30’s. The dining tent was absolutely gorgeous and was the perfect cozy setting for all of our delicious meals. Our charming chef for our stay, Sandy, served up bbq ribs and chicken, filet, and full breakfast just to name a few! During our stay, we spent 2 days biking, hiking and exploring the Grand Canyon, and one day in Page kayaking and touring Lower Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Throughout all of our excursions, Don taught us so much and we left our trip with a wealth of knowledge about the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas - and much much more! We are already planning our next adventure with Don! I can’t recommend Arizona Luxury Expeditions enough!

The Perfect Anniversary Trip My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful glamping experience. Don's expertise in the Grand Canyon and hospitality made for a wonderful time. Chef Sam delighted us with delicious meals in the outstanding dining tent. There were moments we forgot we were staying at a campground! Don served as our guide for the Grand Canyon experience. His knowledge of canyon geology and sharing of anecdotal stories, made the hiking very enjoyable. He catered the tour to our interests including a lunch picnic in the canyon. I had been looking for a special way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Arizona Luxury Expeditions made that happen. We left Arizona with incredible memories and a special new friendship. Thank you Don!

Fabulous Grand Canyon glamping trip! We had a fabulous two night stay. We loved the comfortable, spacious accommodations, beautiful surroundings, and delicious meals (thank you Sam!). The careful attention to dietary preferences was much appreciated. Don was a friendly and engaging guide and was a wealth of knowledge about the Grand Canyon. We would have enjoyed more time hiking in the Grand Canyon but our time limitations and the weather were not ideal. Next time!! I would highly recommend this experience! Thank you Don and Sam!

Fabulous Grand Canyon Experience! Had a lovely experience! Don was an amazing guide & host and so thoughtfully tailored our experience to meet the varying needs of our group. Sam was an amazing chef and so kind to my son who wanted to hang out and chat while he cooked. We made so many amazing memories that we won't soon forget.

10/10 Best Experience! Wow, wow, wow! My husband and I won a glamping trip at a silent auction and were excited to experience the Zion National Park, but didn’t have much knowledge of what to expect glamping. BEYOND AMAZING! Book now - we had two other friends join us and all of us agreed it was the coolest couple days we have had in a while! Don and Sam go above and beyond. They feel like family now - the meals are amazing, the laughs were abundant, the accommodations were beyond comfortable. We can’t wait to go back and do the South Rim with them next year!!

Perfect Glamping Experience We could not have asked for a better guide and glamping experience for Bryce and Zion National Parks. Don and Sam were so friendly and accommodating and our glamping set up far exceeded everything we had imagined. The meals were absolutely amazing (Thank Chef Sam!), everything was so relaxing and set up perfectly. We're already planning on booking another experience next year for the Grand Canyon. Thank you Don and Sam!

Amazing! Thank you Don and chef Sam for an unforgettable and awesome trip to the Grand Canyon! From the moment we met Don outside the entrance, we knew we were in excellent hands. Besides being incredibly kind, Don was full of information on countless topics. We learned so much while soaking up the incredible beauty, and felt safe as we trekked down into the canyon. The tents were fabulous and so comfortable and the food was wonderful. Sam cooked incredible meals and was very considerate about any dietary concerns. They even surprised us on our anniversary with a beautiful setup at an overlook, complete wine, cheeses and chocolate cake!! The best trip - thank you!!!

Super fun! Great for all ages! We really enjoyed our stay here, the bathrooms were very nice and the rooms were nicely furnished and warm for the cold temps. Our tents were spacious and comfortably fit our family. Don was very welcoming and knowledgeable on all topics. Chef Sam presented amazing food which was perfect for all members of our family. Our day trips to Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, and Horseshoe Bend were amazing and super cool and interesting. Overall I would definitely recommend!

Camping at it's finest Family trip with 16 people during one of the biggest snowfalls in the Canyon in years - and we actually had a great time thanks to Don, Chris, and Don's son, Sam, the chef. The tents and bathrooms were warm, thanks to heaters, the food was great, and when our activities got cancelled due to weather, they found alternate activities for us. I would HIGHLY recommend them for your vacation.

Oh my gosh, what an amazing experience. Talk about being spoiled, my goodness! Don and Sam went over the top with their hospitality. With Don's guidance I learned about the Grand Canyon with the hands on experience of hiking into the Canyon. Their site in Arizona is beautiful, such comfortable accomondations. Sam made sure I started my day with a hearty breakfast and his dinners were spectacular. I was their ONLY guest the week I was there so I was able to enjoy their company at meal time and around the camp fire in the evening. Lorraine being there on my last evening was just icing on the cake. There is no doubt they will see me again!

Don & Sam were fantastic! Don led us on two great hikes and a planned a bike ride for our family. Sam prepared meals that were just "to die for!" They also worked with some special dietary needs. The "glamping" accommodations were also very nice. We slept well and enjoyed waking to the sounds of nature!

We visited the Grand Canyon in late March with Arizona Luxury Expeditions. We were blown away with how great they made our vacation. Don and has team had thought of every detail and worked hard to make our stay easy, fun, and lux. The tents were cozy, spacious, and impeccably clean. The food was really great and fresh. Our guide for our hike was incredibly knowledgeable and made our hike into the canyon a beautiful and personal experience. We highly recommend Arizona’s Luxury Expeditions! We’ll definitely work with them again on other trips in S. Utah and Arizona. Thank you!!

I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a glamping trip with Arizona Luxury Expeditions to their camp just outside the Grand Canyon. My family of four, including two semi-skeptical teenagers, had an incredible experience filled with adventure, delicious meals, and unforgettable sights. Our trip was initially scheduled for March 2020, but due to Covid, we had to postpone. Don, the owner of ALE, was very flexible and let us reschedule our trip three years later. Don was always quick to get back to me, provided excellent suggestions, and helped me with details on other parts of our trip. His advice was invaluable. One of the highlights of our trip was the gourmet meals prepared by the talented chef Sam. Each dish was beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. It was a true luxury to be able to enjoy such delicious food in the midst of nature. Our hiking tours in the Grand Canyon with our guide, Chris, were also a highlight of the trip. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and took us on unforgettable hikes. We were able to explore the beauty of the Grand Canyon while feeling safe and comfortable under his guidance. Because we were there in early April, some ice and snow were still on the ground. While other hikers were slipping and generally having difficulty navigating the trail, Chris provided us with crampons and trekking poles that kept us safe during our descent and ascent in the canyon. My skeptical teens said the hikes were the favorite part of our trip (inert mind-blown emoji here). The accommodations at ALE exceeded our expectations. Our tent was spacious and decorated beautifully. The Pendelton blankets provided by Arizona Luxury Expeditions were another wonderful touch. They were warm, cozy, and beautifully designed, adding an extra level of comfort to our nights under the stars. We were also impressed by the cleanliness and modern amenities of the outhouses. It was refreshing to have access to such clean and well-maintained facilities while camping. The campfires with smores were another favorite activity of our teenagers, and the beautiful night sky made for a magical backdrop. Thanks to the owner, Don, we also had the opportunity to go on an Antelope Canyon tour and a Glen Canyon float trip in Page, both of which were unforgettable experiences. Overall, our glamping trip with Arizona Luxury Expeditions was a lifetime adventure that exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable way to explore the Grand Canyon and its surrounding areas.

We had the most wonderful trip! Don was an amazing guide and he very knowledgeable. He made the experience better with his stories and history of the Grand Canyon. We did a day in Page, AZ as well and really loved the lower antelope canyon and horseshoe bend. Sam is an amazing chef as well! We loved every minute of our trip and want to use ALE again!!

Our family had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Don, Lorraine and Sam. They could not have been more engaged with us during the two nights we spent glamping with them. Don is very knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and the area in general, Lorraine is so professional great to chat with and Sam is a great chef. Overall great family experience!

We had an amazing experience staying with Don and Lorraine at their glamping site and visiting the Grand Canyon and Antelope canyon. They were excellent guides and Sam was a worthy chef. We look forward to our next visit!
