Las Vegas, Nevada
Negative aspects: 1) taking two buses in the morning (instead of one) and a line in the tour center where they divide people into groups [although, they do it very professionally and quick]; 2) a long bus ride [obviously, not their fault].
Positive sides: the rest. In general, this tour is totally worth to do if you are on a limited budget. The buses are comfortable and the drivers tell you stories and facts about the Grand Canyon and other sights. It should be noticed that they have sense of humor as well. The Hoover Dam stop is a bit too short and you can't walk on the Dam directly but again it is not their fault. One stop in Arizona for eating at McDonalds - not the best choice of course but you can sneak and be quick to get food from around. At the tour center they offer to buy additional stuff like pink jeep and helicopter tour. So it is good if you decided to add it and didn't have a chance to purchase it earlier. If you get it it becomes a bit of mess with changing buses but it somehow works out perfectly. The food [pizza/asian food + water/yogurt/soda + fruits] at the Canyon is provided. Basically, the tour takes the whole day and it is a bit challenging for those who don't like to be on a bus for a long time but, again, they are very professional and responsive. My conclusion is that if you want to get a nice tour to the Grand Canyon for a relatively cheap price, here it is. Recommended!
