the trip was excellent, the view's beautiful and the bus ride was comfortable.
highly recommend anyone doing this tour to join the jeep tour, the guides are very pleasent and informative, and you'll experience a VIP like view of the South Rim.
The tour was great and the tour description was accurate!
This was an awesome trip. The bus driver did an excellent job considering the amount of time he was behind the wheel. This is a full day from 06 am to approx. 11 pm. The views from the south rim were amazing, but we booked the optional helicopter ride over the canyon where the views were breathtaking, and that made this trip unforgettable.
Great Tour! Long day...but well worth it. The Grand Canyon is amazing....
It was a great trip and tour bus and guide, the driver was great as well, the only negative thing is just not enough hours in a day to discover the whole Canyon from different points of Rims to tour.
Once in a lifetime experience! This place was beautiful.
My experience was wonderful. The guide was great, full of information and a great guide. I loved everything about my trip and would recommend to anyone.
Doing what: Grand Canyon South Rim Day Trip from Sedona
Fantastic visit to South Rim with upgrades. Our driver, Milton, was wonderful well informed and knowledgeable. He explained many things and also had pertinent dvd's on board about Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. These were informative and gave context to the day, much better than just time-passing movies. I upgraded to include IMAX movie, which provided context and history of what was being seen. At the last moment, I also upgraded to the Jeep and really enjoyed seeing the Canyon up close and personal. You do need to understand that this trip is a commitment to a long, long day -- but so well worth it! Can't wait to go again! Thank you all. . .
Really appreciated the friendly efficient bus driver.
The tour was excellent.
Did not like the cattle-ling of people in morning.nice bus for pick up from hotel but trip to canyon was a downgraded bus. But a great Driver !
Had a great time at the Grand Canyon. Was a long day with ten hours of riding to and from. Had one hour at each of two stops at the Grand Canyon. The bus automated tour guide was very informative but our bus driver was rude and unpersonable. Actually asked for a five dollar tip after the automated guide suggested that. Only got 20min to stop for dinner at Subway.
Tour company was great. Although the trip was long, it was very enjoyable. The only downer was our bus driver Julio. Old and cranky!
A long day but worth doing. The tour guide was informative and humerous. Time spent at each location was sufficient.
The stops at the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon were worth the long bus ride that would be my only drawback - make sure you can make yourself comfortable on the bus. The time to explore 2hrs!! at the Grand Canyon was well worth the cost of the trip! Lunch could have been better but understanding that it was to feed the masses.
It was my first time to hear of Viator and the price seem to be too good to be true based on searches I did. Since I was leery and it was a last minute decision I booked a reservation for a day trip over the phone instead of online. Charlene, very pleasant lady and so patient with my questions, assisted me. So from the booking, to the terminal check in, to Michael, our bus driver, lunch at National Geographic, Grand Canyon and the trip back to our respective hotels everything was great! I commend Michael for his driving skills and his patience with passengers. I will definitely check out Viator if I go on a tour again.
Driver was a bit gruff.
The tour was very good. The only thing I would recommend is not to have as many stops on the way to the Grand Canyon. That time could be used to extend the time exploring the Canyon.
Very organized and well run. Trip was very long though. Over 1 hour just to pick up passengers at hotels before going to get on tour bus.
Excellent tour, but the only problem was not long enough at each site. Couldn't really be longer though as we didn't get back to our hotel until after 9 p.m. Wonderful views of the Grand Canyon. Great audio information on the trip as well as entertaining family-friendly movies on the trip. Our driver, Julio, was also great and knowledgeable of the area, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. I would definitely recommend the trip.
Driver was very knowledgeable. I would recommend it for others to do!!
too long...starts at 6 am if you have a hotel pick up and you get back by 11 pm.
Recorded commentary is fine..a little information at the Canyon itself about what to do during the two hours you get would have made our experience worth it.
Lunch is ok.A pizza or a sandwich...
If youre short of time and dont want to fly..this is a good option.
The tour was good and could be much better if the guide/driver treat us with respect! I payed for this trip and I don't think that I deserve somebody to yelling at me because I dare to be late 3-4 min in the store in front of everybody, make unappropriated jokes and fun because I'm a smoker really?!, feel like a pariah and don't feel like i was in vacation, etc. I couldn't enjoy as much as I should - the time estimated for each stop that the crew told us at the beginning wasn't at all the time that we spent.
While we LOVED seeing the Grand Canyon, we only spent 2 hours there taking pictures and, of course, buying souvenirs - every tour directs you to gift shops. We were on the bus for 12 hours . . . people were always late . . . the driver never gave clear times or directions when to be back . . . the lunch was atrocious . . . and when we returned to Vegas, it took us an hour after a very LONG day to get NEAR our hotel - we were dropped off 2 hotels away and had to walk! We had a total of about 5 minutes to take pictures of Hoover Dam! Overall what we saw was not worth the time or money. Next time, I would rent a car and drive it myself - then I could judge my time like I wanted it.
It felt rushed. We got to stop at 2 different lookout places, but only got to stay for about one hour at each stop. Our driver had a very very thick Spanish accent and spoke in broken English to the point that it was difficult to understand him. We did get to watch 2 movies, 1 on the way out, and 1 on the way back, which was a nice way to break up the tedium of the long drive. Although it was nice not having to drive, if I had it to do over again, I would probably rent a car and make the drive myself.
