Our trip was fantastic, a great big thank you to Bob our driver who made the day even better, great knowledge and was always there to meet us when we had finished our activity. I would recommend your company to anyone who was travelling to the grand canyon.
We had a wonderful day out with Don our driver from Pink Jeep.
Don picked us up from our hotel right on time - as it turned out there was myself, my daughter and another couple from Canada. A small and friendly group. Don was full of information and was a great guide throughout the day. A long day but done in comfort. Crowds were down as it was winter which made it easier to get on and off shuttles, have lunch and very few lines to stand in. The day was sunny and the temperature just right.
This trip included return journey in a luxury Pink Jeep - really comfortable leather seats. Door to door service, with breakfast of juice and a cheese danish and unlimited water supplied. The commentary was great and we learnt a lot about the area. The jeep was very comfortable. We stopped and walked over the Hoover Dam, and another stop for refreshments including a fantastic slice of ;pizza. Once we arrived at the Grand Canyon we enjoyed a helicopter ride down into the canyon (I had been really nervous about this but it was fantastic); a short cruise on the Colorado River; return ride on the helicopter and then onto the shuttle bus through the reserve to two special lookout points. Although Don wasn't with us for the helicopter and boat portion he was with us throughout the rest of the day. So much to see. Lunch was also included which was great. We added the Skywalk (c.$30 each) which was also fantastic. We took lots of photos and it was a wonderful day. Don took us back home while we dozed and thought a lot about what we had seen and done. We were picked up at 6.30am and returned about 6pm. A very comfortable and exciting day.
We would really recommend this trip - it had so many parts to it and all of them were fantastic. We had an excellent day and the jeep was really comfortable. Thanks Don for a brilliant day and lots of memories.
Bob was the best guide ever. We had a great tour! Highly recommend it!
If you don't have time to visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, which provides you with the Canyon's enormous breadth and depth, then this tour is a perfect second. The helicopter ride (not available from the South Rim) is awesome! As the land is owned by an Indian nation, it is not affected by US government closures. Most staff are from the tribe and very interesting to talk to: they take such pride in their traditional way of life, whilst embracing the profits generated from their visitors. Still a work in progress - the drive in is on unpaved roads - the Western Rim and facilities are adequate. We really enjoyed our tour and our driver/tour guide was knowledgeable and obliging. Pink Jeep Tours do a range of tours from Vegas that are worth considering as well. All in all, a great day (long) and many, many fantastic photos to remind us of the the spectacular vistas in the Canyon.
This trip was amazing and would highly recommend it. Mike our guide was fantastic and kept us entertained all day. This is a must go trip.
Our driver was Ken... brilliant guy!... Nothing was a problem to him.
His driving style was good and easy.... everyone felt relaxed and had fun. He was particuarly great with my elderly mother and wasnt at all worried when she lagged behind, but equally helped get her through queues of people when he realised she couldnt stand for too long. As for giving information etc. he was brilliant. He even talked us through a route back to LA calling at Deaths Valley and Dantes Point which we got to just before sunset... amazing views....
Great tour.... even greater tour guide. Thanks Ken !!
Fabulous trip. Our guide bob was very knowledgeable and sorted us out all day. Only 9 on jeep so more intimate group than a coach. Helicopter was good fun. Would definitely recommend.
This was an awesome trip , and a good 10 hours long. We met Shannon our tour guide with Pink Jeep Tours who was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
We did the Hoover Dam, drove through the Mojabi desert and saw the most amazing things in form of wildlife and the the famous Joshua Trees.
The Grand Canyon was absolutely jaw dropping, but unfortunately it was a very windy day and our Helicopter ride back down 4000 ft to the bottom of the canyon was very very turbulant and the same on the way up. When you land we went for a 15 minute ride on the mighty Colorado river.
All the staff were friendly and made the whole trip memerable and enjoyable. I would recommend this trip to anyone and I would go again.
We looked hard before picking this trip and chose this one because we did not want to just fly in and out by helicopter and we did not want the possibility of a horrendous coach journey picking people up and dropping off at hotels.As it was there were only ourselves and one other couple in the jeep it made this closest thing to a personal guided tour you could get.Chris, our tour guide was amazing. He was a mine of information which made the two and a half hour journey to the canyon seem like a breeze. One there, the helicopter and boat ride were truly a once in a lifetime experience. There was more than enough time for photos and our guide asked us how long we anted to stay at various points. My wife has recommended this trip and Chris to a hen party of friends going over to Vegas later in the year. Lucky Man !
