Las Vegas, Nevada
This trip was really awesome! I can recommend it to everyone. At first I thought we would not have enough time to see everything, or that it was too crowdy. For us, it was perfect. We made a stop at Mather Point and we walked to the next pick-up location (Bright Angel Lodge). On our way we had plenty enough time to take pictures of the canyon. The trail was not too long, but not too short either. It was all down hill and there were locations where you were able to fill your bottle with water. It took us about 1,5h to walk from the one to the next location (incl stops!). I strongly recommend you to walk that part as it is less crowdy and you have plenty of beautiful views!
Our busdriver was very friendly and informative. She guided us very well, and made sure that everyone was on time at each location. The organisation is good, you have time to reconsider your tour with extra's (if you have not booked them already). Still, I missed a map of the pick-up location. With the booking I have selected the pick-up location. The pick-up locations are limited, so I am sure it could be possibile to add a map or description of the pick-up location. For us (and for a few others) it was not really easy to find as our hotel was not one of the pick-up locations.
Last but not least, we only booked a tour to the Grand Canyon. However it is worth to mention that the optional movie (about 30 min) at the National Geographic center, is a compulsory stop whether you have booked the option or not. In our case we needed to wait for 1,5h. There was nothing to do (except eating and a little shop), so be aware of that.
