What people are saying about Steve

We toured with Steve as a group of four people, two adults and two 10-year-old kids. We had a wonderful five-day tour with Steve. Steve is an excellent tour guide. He’s very knowledgeable. He knows the history and culture of the area. We went to many interesting places we may not have discovered on our own. Steve has a good sense of humor. We all had great fun with him. He’s an excellent planner. He had planned every needed detail for us. He answered the many questions of the two active and inquisitive kids with great patience. I really appreciated that. He likes to tell stories. The two kids really like him a lot. When we arrived at home, my daughter wrote him an e-mail message with great excitement. Steve, we hope you can make even more friends from future tours. Hope to see you again next year. Thank you, Steve!
---Jingkun and friends from China

I am a travel planner, and Steve prepared a tour for a very particular couple who are clients of mine. Steve was the perfect guide for them on the trip I planned for them to Las Vegas. They described Steve as very knowledgeable, prompt, and personable. He shared an extended list of other things they may consider during their stay in Vegas. He had worked along with me to customize their tour as carefully as I had planned it. I will always trust Steve with my travelers to Las Vegas. Excellent service.
---Doris from Texas

You were very accommodating, you were on time, and you were polite, friendly, and knowledgeable. Thanks for all of your help. Best wishes and good luck.
---Tom and friends from Michigan

Steve was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable and catered to our every need!!
---Mark & Bev from Georgia

Steve was an excellent guide. He was flexible, educational, engaging, and sensitive to my elderly mother's energy. We had fun with him and enjoyed sparring when he quizzed us about previously disclosed history. We were very pleased that he took us to a few less well known sites that were gorgeous. He also readily agreed to be our driver so we could see the sites without driving off into a canyon!
---Sharon from Illinois

We enjoyed Steve's interesting explanation of the St. George and Grand Canyon North Rim areas, as well as his extensive personal knowledge from his many years living in Utah. Steve's tour was planned well and delivered exactly what we had requested. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking to experience the North Rim in a quality manner.
---Robert from Washington

We were really satisfied with this tour. In particular, during the phases of planning it, Steve was very attentive and arranged a detailed schedule with different options, discussing carefully with me various ideas and suggestions, and customizing the tour according to our desires. Therefore the actual trip went nicely, and we spent three lovely days together. Steve is a very nice, kind and friendly, and professional, person whom I would reccommend to everyone. Thank you!
---Chiara & Claudio from Italy

Very pleased to have a modified tour based on my needs. We did just enough hiking. It was glorious to enjoy the views while Steve did all the driving. We went many places off the beaten path, and Steve took me places it would have taken me days to find. And no stress whatever! I wish I would have known about you years ago. I would have been able to see so much more! Thank you, Steve.
---Judy from Ohio

Have been reminiscing of late about our trip... had such fun with Steve at all the amazing sights. Still can't believe I ticked so many of my 'bucket list' items off.
---Simon from Australia

Steve arranged the itinerary so we could get the most out of our transfer from Las Vegas to San Francisco. What a trip, desert one day in Death Valley, snow the next in Yosemite! Steve took us to sites we would have missed on our own and packed a lot into two days. Steve is a charming guide, very thoughtful and knowledgeable about the area. Definitely a trip of a lifetime, it was a vacation in itself. Can't praise this enough, thanks Steve, it was truly memorable. I think we will be back!
---George & friends from England

Outstanding!!!! This was our first guided tour ever and it was GREAT!!! We couldn't have enjoyed it as much it without Steve. He could answer any question and knew all the best spots. AND he was very adaptable. He has a good sense of humor, so we all had fun. Can't wait to go on another tour with Steve. We couldn't have asked for more!!! I would recommend him to anyone, especially those who aren't good English speakers, since he's so fluent in other languages.
---Brenda from California

We thoroughly enjoyed beautiful Bryce Canyon and all the information you shared with us! Thank you so much for a wonderful day. Best wishes from the Kiwi Express.
---Kate & the choir from New Zealand and Australia

We had a great outing. Steve was knowledgeable and considerate. The terrain was like nothing we had ever seen and a perfect conclusion to a Las Vegas trip. Thank you, Steve.
---Lauranne & friends from Florida

Conscientious, polite, full of knowledge, helpful. Very professional. Native of the area, so knows a lot of details.

Thank you ever so much for making our trip a very memorable experience. Your thorough planning and knowledge have inspired me. I now know what the real West is. God bless you and your business.

BTW, thanks for sending the sweater. We got all our pictures developed, and they are really good.

Thanks again for your good guiding. We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery! Do keep in touch, and come visit us!
---Mac & Sherry from North Carolina


Steve knew all of history of the area. He adjusted the tour to meet our needs. Very accommodating.
---Rob from Texas


Steve knew so much information about the places we visited. He shared the physical description of each place and also included historical points. I've learned so much about the area's history and culture. He took me around to various locations that normal tours would not experience. It was fantastic, and I have no regrets about taking the tour with Steve. I highly recommend him to anybody who wants to explore the American Southwest. By the way, he was very well organised for the trip. Snacks, food, tents...even toilet paper! And the schedule was very well planned.
---Rara from Australia


Steve is a very nice guy with an obvious connection and love for the land. We had a good time and have good memories of the area.
---Trudy from Switzerland


I definitely appreciated Steve's prompt attention and organization in building the tour. I find him to be very professional and friendly.
All the best, and thanks again for your hard work.
---Amy from California


I have been on several tours that Steve has organized. I feel they were very interesting, exciting, useful, and economical. He is very thorough in researching the routes and the particulars needed. He has had many experiences in different countries and cultures and understands several languages. He has always been thoughtful in using the tour to benefit each person on it, and he is good at being one-on-one.
---Glen from Nevada


I have known Steve for over 25 years, and in that time we have traded travel stories from all over the world. His knowledge of languages and customs of people in different countries is extensive. He has made life-long friends from around the world, and I think that has helped him to be able to construct fun and informative tours for people. I think they will be well rewarded when traveling with Steve. He has the uncanny ability to look out for all details and to leave nothing to chance. That should instill a lot of comfort in group participants who just want to travel, have a good time, and know that they can relax and that they will be looked after. That is just like me, as a matter of fact.
---Mary from Utah


I have been on several trips with Steve and have always been impressed by his research and details pertaining to the area in which we were traveling. He knew all the things of interest  along the route. He  was aware of all travel accommodations, how long it would take to arrive at certain destinations, and what was available there.
I have always felt I was in good hands when Steve planned our tour, and I would really know about the area when the trip was finished.
---Maureen from Nevada


Since Steve was young, he has always been interested in and has traveled all over the world. He has lived in many places like Hawaii, Japan, Mexico, and Germany. I would trust his opinions when traveling to any country. I personally have traveled with him to many places and would recommend him as a travel consultant. He always knows a lot about the places he visits. He is honest and keeps the people in the countries you will visit honest.
---Martin from Texas


Steve is a great preparer. When you take a trip with Steve, you will know that you are in good hands from start to finish. He is keen on attention to detail and leaves no stone unturned. He not only speaks several languages, but has a pleasant personality that everyone likes. When people get to know Steve, they often become lifelong friends. I would highly recommend Steve as a tour guide.
---Terry from Utah


I'm glad to see Steve doing something he loves with this tour organization. I know how much he loves to travel, and his gift of languages will certainly add much to the experience. And his love for people should shine through.
---Ruth from Utah
