Las Vegas, Nevada
I'm glad we got to see the Grand Canyon. But I'm frustrated with the whole trip. We knew going in it would be a long day, in all it was 18 hours, a few more than I thought. I think a big part of our problem was due to the bus driver. Excess stops at McD's, slow driving, then being rushed at our actual destination stops. Her commentary on the tour was mostly "chater" and she swapped around GC stop 1 and 2 because she thought 2 was better than 1. Which we disagreed and missed out on things at the 2nd Canyon stop because they were already closed. All in all, it was very frustrating and disappointing. Also aggravating was the wait on other passengers disrespect for departure times at all stops. I had considered renting a car and doing the drive ourselves, I thought this would be more enjoyable than that, but felt rather disappointed and wishing we had rented a car instead.
