Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

I can only recommend this tour if you want to go to the Grand Canyon on the cheap. Spending almost 17 hours on this tour makes for a very long day, most of it on a full bus. You need to be fit enough to walk a quarter of a mile from the parking lot to the rim to actually see the canyon. I walked at least a mile during my two hours at the GC. A hat, sun block and a bottle of water should be carried with you. You also might need a jacket as it was fifteen degrees cooler than LV. Good photos are difficult due to weather and likely haze. My experience might have been better if I had chosen the jeep tour and helicopter option.

Guangzhou (Canton) China Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Half of this tour was spent in Shekou/Shenzhen. The Terracotta warriors was a waste of time. Panda stop was marginal. Best of this tour was Canton walking through the old sections which may not be there in the future due to development. This tour should have spent more time in Canton. The ride back to Hong Kong was on one of the newer trains. This was an easy way to experience urban China without getting a visa.

Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour guide on this was excellent. Lots of background and history of Macau. Western buffet lunch as decent. Not much time spent in the casinos so don't expect to do any gambling on this tour. Tour refused to pick me up from my hotel in Hong Kong so I had to make my way across the city to get to the pickup location in Hong Kong. Clearing immigration in and out of Hong Kong can be a pain on this tour.

Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I would call this the scenic Hong Kong tour which goes to the south side of the island away from downtown. Stops in Aberdeen and Stanley market were nice with time to do some shopping in a local market or have lunch. Tour operator would not pick me up from my hotel in Hong Kong. I missed my tour as I got lost getting to the pickup point. The tour operator did allow me to rebook at a later date. I recommend this tour due to the low cost and amount of time spent. Great for the first time visitor!
