Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An amazing experience seeing the Grand Canyon. It is an extremely long day, especially spending 10 hours on a tour coach that lacked the amenities that you would expect of a coach travelling that far in a day.
No tray tables, no storage nets on the back of the seats, no cup holders or usb connection for charging your smart phone or device. We had these things on a two hour trip to San Diego! The tour company needs to lift their game.
Our driver Loraina was friendly, helpful and made the day go quickly by providing some great dvd's to watch.
The Grand Canyon itself was breath taking, we had sunshine, snow and saw deer up close, well worth the long day.

Private Pink Cadillac Tour of Las Vegas with Elvis

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Eddy was a great host and very entertaining. It was amazing driving down Las Vegas Blvd in his 56 Pink Cadillac, it definitely attracted attraction! He started the tour by taking us to the welcome to Las Vegas' sign and performed some classic Elvis numbers. He has an astounding knowledge of Elvis trivia and took us to the hotel where Elvis stayed and performed, it contains a collection of Elvis memorabilia.
It was a fantastic afternoon and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Las Vegas.

Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive Day Trip from San Francisco

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Spent a wonderful day with Kenneth at the wheel. Comfortable coach and extremely informative commentary. Had a nice two hour stop at Monterey for those who wanted to visit the aquarium or alternatively have a relaxing lunch and visit the shops on Cannery Row. Called in at the Pebble Beach Golf Club, stopped at fruit stall in Salinas and bought beautiful fresh strawberries, brief stop along 17 Mile drive and photographed the seals and squirrels plus we also had an hour to wander the Carmel CBD. All in all a great day due mostly to the friendly attitude and humour of Kenneth.

New York City Night On The Town Tour

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

My husband and I took this tour as it advertised sunset views from the High line, wrong!!!! After getting on the coach we we told they would not be visiting the High Line as it closes early. What made it worse was this fact was known to the company for quite some time, they just forgot to mention it in their tour description. For a $171 for a couple I expected to get what we paid for. The tour description is basically a lie as they know that will not be taking you to the High Line. Instead they took us for a whirlwind visit to the Chelsea Markets, great if you didn't actually want to stop and look at anything, the visit was that fleeting. Dinner as the best part of the night, just don't buy any drinks as the prices charged by the saturation for alcohol are ridiculous approx $9 for a beer! The harbour cruise was great but on our night it was freezing and raining. We were taken to the Top of the Rock and then told they were just dropping us off and would not be waiting forums, we would have to make our own way back to our hotels. It was freezing and blowing a gale. We had a single woman on the tour so we walked her back to her hotel as she was not happy about finding her way back to her hotel. I just wonder if there had been any elderly people on this tour how they would have fared having to walk back. The tour does advertise pick-up and drop-off at our hotel, another misrepresentation. These people need to be honest and either give people what they paid for or. Change the tour description.

Private Horse and Carriage Ride in Central Park

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We had a wonderful young carriage driver from Istanbul who was living in New York studying finance. He was funny, friendly and informative and made it a wonderful experience. Central Park was amazing and we learnt so much about it's history and the history of a lot of the buildings surrounding it. Highly recommended.

My Review

If you have PLENTY of time then this tour is great. Unfortunately New York traffic and Grayline's efforts to cover so much of the city mean that you waste so much time, it takes forever to get anywhere. By the third day of our pass we gave up as we were running out of time to see things and found much quicker to just walk. On another note we did find that sometimes we would wait for a bus to turn up and they didn't when they were supposed to and then you would get two turn up. On one occasion a rival tour company saw everyone waiting at Battery apart and offered to take us, thank. Goodness as it was freezing standing around.
For the most part commentary is good however on one occasion the guides accent was such that we could not understand him, a bit pointless really. Some Grayline employees were helpful but the guys that hang around in a bunch at Times Square are just wasted space. Very reluctant to help and more interested in talking amongst themselves and eating, not good PR.

Diamond Head & Oahu Coast Half-Day Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Very informative trip to Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, Hanauma Bay. Had a stop at Wailea which was essentially to try and get us to spend money at a store the driver Dwight endorsed, telling us the prices were 'special' for his 'good looking cousins, his 'ohana' which is what he kept calling the passengers on the tour. Dwight certainly knew his stuff and was well informed but he became really annoying after a while. Sometimes 'less is more' and I think by the end of the afternoon people were relieved to get off the coach. He had an opinion on everything and was very keen to push his beliefs which is ok perhaps in a different forum. I would still recommend the tour but be prepared for an ear bashing if Dwight is driving.

Fast reliable service. Driver waiting at Arrivals for us. A little lacking in communication skills, not very welcoming but transported us without problem to our hotel. As a transfer service I would recommend, just don't expect to get and warm and friendly welcome.
