Las Vegas, Nevada
The whole trip was excellent from start to finish. The vehicle was very comfortable and coped with the off-road section of the journey to the Grand Canyon really well. Our driver and guide Mike was really nice and friendly and knew a lot about everything! As there were only 6 of us on the trip (due to 4 people not turning up....what idiots!), he was kind of a father figure for us all! The helicopter ride was amazing and the adrenaline of this was counteracted really well by the chilled out boat ride. Beware though...everyone says it is hot in the Grand Canyon, but when we went in April, it was freezing...so take something warm. The reservation itself had some good views, although it is very commercial. Lunch was good and on the way back, we stopped off at the Hoover dam for some photos and souvenirs. We had originally booked to fly to GC, but heard some terrible stories of really bad turbulence, so we decided to change the trip to this one. So glad we did, we had a wonderful day, a really good laugh and some memories to treasure. The 2.5 hour journey to the GC is fine as it is broken up with some pit stops along the way and way back. Coming back to Vegas, Mike let us all have a nap in the back while he got us home safely. Thoroughly recommended trip. They even picked us up from our hotel which wasn't on their pre-approved list!
