This was a wonderful trip. We were amazed by the nature, the views, and fantastic organization of this day tour. Everything was on time, as promissed. We had very experienced drivers who made this long tour interesting and fun. The helicopter flight over the canyon, the views, and photo/video opportunities were worth every penny. We would like to go back to Grand Canyon for overnight stay to appreciate even more the wonders of nature.
An amazing trip! It's defiantly worth what you pay for. Yes it's a very long day out, but to see the Grand Canyon even for a short time is breathtaking. Stopped at the Hoover Dam and for food. Walter the driver was brilliant and very knowledgable.
It was so nice~
Every thing was perfect. We were picked up on time and stayed on schedule all day. I would recommend this tour without reservation.
Excellent way to spend the day! Tour guide was awesome. Bus was great. Great stops along the way including the Hoover Dam, coffee/breakfast, lunch and of course the Grand Canyon!highly recommend this tour company..Viator!
This is not really a tour in the traditional sense. Transport to/from Las Vegas, accommodation, dinner booking and the mule ride are organised for you. The rest is up to you! Once you arrive, you can use the free South Rim shuttle bus to see the parts of the canyon which interest you. You'll have about four hours of free time on Day 1 (before it gets dark), and about two hours in between the mule ride and departure on Day 2.
The driver will leave you there on Day 1, and another driver will pick you up on Day 2. The driver who drove us to the Grand Canyon was very accommodating. He stayed back to give us some tips and suggestions on what to see during our stay. He also explained the history of the towns that we passed through, and did his best to make the long drive from Las Vegas enjoyable.
The mule ride was a great experience. You have the freedom to turn it into the sort of trip that you want. I appreciated the overnight stay as I was able to see the sunrise over the canyon, and do some stargazing away from the big cities. Overall, this is a very good introduction to the Grand Canyon!
One minor issue was the dinner arrangement - we were given a pre-paid Visa debit card which we use to pay for our dinner at El Tovar. However, before we could use it, we had to call a US phone number to activate the card. As international travellers, we did not have a local SIM card, so this was inconvenient. I think the process for arranging our dinner could have been improved.
Brilliant tour! Walter, our tour guide, was amazing. He was funny, knowledgable and generally great at his job. We chose to take his route at the Grand Canyon and dos a 2 mile walk from the visitor centre to Bright Angel lodge which was a great way to see the Canyon and to stretch your legs!
Upgraded to the jeep tour. Although a long day, thoroughly enjoyed our time at the grand canon
It was awesome , driver was well educated, kept the tour going,
Overall the trip was enjoyable. Just a couple of suggestions. The narrated portion of the bus ride was going in and out which was very annoying. The movie played "Bullwinkle" I could have done without - it was very loud and didn't make sense. I also didn't understand why we had to stop at McDonalds twice. When we check in prior to getting on the bus there are breakfast items offered stopping at McDonalds is a waste of time and I was particularly frustrated that we stopped on the return home. We got on the bus at 7:30 but actually didn't get to the Grand Canyon until 2:45p and had to leave at 5p. We also had to wait 30 minutes for the individuals that took the helicopter ride to return to the IMAX area because they were running late. I spent more time on the bus and at McDonalds then I did at the Canyon. Felt very rushed and if you were late the bus leaves you but yet we had to wait for the helicopter riders. Didn't make sense to me. Maybe you could cut out the McDonalds so those visiting can really spend the time visiting the Canyon.
Bit of a long wait before departing for Grand Canyon - hotel pick up 6.15 but then taken to tour company premises to be split into groups (west and south canyon). Tour rep then gave brief talk on trips and gave details of available add-ons after which another small queue to pay remaining balance to tour company. Think we eventually got on our way around 9 a.m. Once on way very well organised with an excellent coach driver. No tour guide on board bus - taped commentary.
driver great good tour mc d stop pm not needed
The trip to the Grand Canyon was great. Our bus driver, Walter, was the best. It was a very long day and he made it very enjoyable.
We both enjoyed the tour and, in particular, our driver who was very knowledgable. Our only critism was the early pick up and being taking to your facility instead of leaving straight from the hotel which would have saved approx 1.5hrs.
