Las Vegas, Nevada
Excellent tour! From the moment I got picked up from my hotel to the point I was dropped off on a stretch limousine, the whole experience was wonderful. It is a very well organised tour. We had a state of the art helicopter (or so I was told by the funny and informative pilot) that gave us the amazing views of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, etc from the sky. This is my second time to visit the Grand Canyon and although the South Rim is even more spectacular, if you have a very limited time to explore then this is the tour for you.
Excellent guide with a great sense of humour! Tour started on time and run on clock work precision. Lunch was ok, although nothing special. The only negative side to the tour was the non-inclusion of the Imperial Palace. The guide mentioned the Palace was closed in preparation for some "open-day" it'll be hosting the following day. Im pretty sure this was public knowledge and notice was made well in advanced as this was an annual event. The tour operator should have informed those booking the tour so we could have the option to pick a different day.
A good over view of Tokyo's main attractions. Tour started with a slight delay and we got stuck in traffic at the Imperial Palace. It just so happened that on the day of the tour, the Imperial Gardens was opened to the public for Cherry Blossom viewing. Over 100,000 people showed up so one can imagine the traffic jam. We were told by the tour guide to brave the crowd so we can get close to the palace only to be told when we got there that we cannot go any further. We wasted 45 mins to an hour of what was a half day tour.
Generally an OK tour. Weather wasn't cooperating that day, although we were still lucky to catch a partial view of Mt Fuji for a few minutes at the designated view point. It started snowing - apparently a first in spring for the tour guide! The hakone rope way was closed and we were given an alternate ride, which was ok. Tour guide's english was almost incomprehensible. Lake cruise was pleasant with great views. Tour started 40 minutes late.
