This trip was fabulous - Manuel the guide was everything I had previously read about him in reviews - highly knowledgeable and extremely professional
I booked the trip because the idea of a small group appealed to me and it worked beautifully - never felt rushed - good fun had by all and Manuel on hand for any information we required
Was very impressed with the standard on overnight accommodation
Thank you for the wonderful experience and the holiday of a lifetime!!!
I have already recommended this trip to friends
My husband and I took this tour so we wouldn't have to do the driving. We were visiting from the East and felt it was the best way to go. It sure was!! A small group 9 was fabulous and we got to know everyone. We didn't feel rushed, had enough time to see everything we wanted and plenty of time to take pictures etc. I can't possibly say enough about our tour guide Ingrid. She was so knowledgeable, very personable and a lot of fun. She made you feel like you had know her for years. Our driver Irene was awesome. If you ever get the chance to take this tour....PLEASE DO. Plus, if you are lucky enough to get Ingrid and Irene as the dynamic duo.....your trip will exceed your expectations.
This tour is one of the top notch offers from Viator. It has many stops along the way, particularly those involving Route 66 and its history. There is enough time in the parks to have a good sense of their majesty, even though it rained, then hailed, then snowed while we drove in the minibus during the last hour at the Grand Canyon along the road to Page for the evening. Weather was perfect, otherwise. The tour was made so excellent because our guide named Dorit had a strong personality with lots of knowledge about the places we visited and allowed us to enjoy time on our own to explore what we wanted. Be sure to ask for Dorit as the tour guide when you go! She is the best! The motels are clean and centrally located in their towns so that going to a restaurant for dinner is easy since you are on your own for that meal. You cannot go wrong with the time or the money you need to enjoy these three national parks and all the places in between on the itinerary.
The 3 day National Park tour from Las Vegas was absolutely amazing! Our guide Ingrid and our driver Danny were very knowledgable and made sure we made to all the stops in time. There's a lot of driving involved-we drove over 1,000 miles by the end of it but its well worth it. The sights are amazing and I really felt like I was in a different world. Each park has its own uniqueness and beauty. Highly recommend it for people who want to see multiple parks in a short amount of time.
Fantastic Tour from start to finish. Great guide kept us entertained, so much crammed in to such a small amount of time but it does not seem rushed. places visited are amazing. A must do if you have the time.
The tour was amazing! A great way to see the canyon and national parks. Alex was a great tour guide...would recommend his tour.
Great views, great trip, great fun.
Manuel from Italy was great, had tons of Italians to look after but still made time for the two English speakers.
Lots of travel but great, go eat and drink at the Damn Bar the first night.
We had a wonderful time on our 3-day tour. We had a lovely time with Manuel our tour guide and our driver Mr. Chen. We couldn't find fault with anything. The tour was very interesting and entertaining. We had fellow passenger from all over the world which made the tour and time together even more interesting. I would highly recommend this to family and friends going to Las Vegas.
Great. Safe driver. Knowledgeable tour guide Manuel, funny, caring, responsible.
Places visited were breathtakingly beautiful. Only negative: bad, weak coffee in hotel breakfasts. Having Italians on board, we needed good strong coffee.
Three full days of concentrated tours got us big bangs for our bucks!
This was a wonderful tour. Manuel was a great guide. The best value of any tour we have gone on.
This was an excellent family trip. We saw so much in the time we had, tour guides were wonderful. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great national park tour!
I must admit , this was one of the best tours in my experience. It was so smartly planned, we always had just enough time to enjoy it at every point, still never in a rush, technical stops happening at the right time at the right places, the choice of the hotels and restaurants was very satisfying . Emanuel is a great guide and a great guy, very helpful and informative, giving all the possible useful tips and managing the group with perfect humor and social skills. Jonathan the driver is one of the nicest persons ever. And as for the parks .. Well, they are breathtaking, beautiful and indescribable - you just must see . It was more than worth every penny . I strongly recommend it.
I enjoyed every minute of this tour. It was so well organised, the guides were great especially our leader Siah, the scenery is breathtaking and the accommodation was much better than I had expected. We were very lucky with the weather, which was not too warm, so we could happily hike at Bryce Canyon and Zion. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
Well worth the money, guides were fab, driver friendly and helpful, sites were amazing, over night hotels were better than expected, food was great, very reasonably priced, highly recommended.
This tour is an amazing opportunity to see 3 national parks in 3 days! Here are the pros/cons:
Pros: The tour guide Manuel who gives the tour in Italian and English is fantastic! He is funny, patient, informative and attentive to each tourist. He was very accommodating when we had to make a special request, and when you're on a bus for 6-7 hours a day, it's great to have a good-natured and charming person like Manuel to make the journey interesting.
The bus driver, Greg, was great as well. He's a safe driver and sells water for 1 a bottle, so take advantage of that!
Day 1:The Grand Canyon is breathtaking. We were able to spend time at the South Rim and we also had about an hour to visit the Desert View. Overnight at the Clarion Motel in Page, AZ was fine--typical continental breakfast provided.
Day 2: Morning boat ride on Lake Powell was more fun than we expected. Everyone rushes to the top deck of the boat, but if it's sunny--you will burn--outside of the lower deck was actually the best spot--full range of views for photos and some shade!
Bryce Canyon is beyond words. It's like being on another planet. We hiked the entire Navajo Loop trail and it was worth it! Most people just walk halfway down the hoodoos and then return the same way....you will miss out if you do this!
Day 3: Zion --- a beautiful landscape---hike the Emerald Pool Trails...wade in the river...it's a nice laid back day.
Cons: 1.The Days Inn Motel that we stayed in on Day 2 in Kanab, Utah was awful! Mold, bugs, horrible smell, unhelpful staff....Viator really needs to find an alternative---this place was filthy.
2. There should be more flexibility for choosing restaurants. Lunch on Day 2 is very mediocre we all had to eat at the same place in Kanab and lunch on day 3 is at a chain restaurant that had a 30 min. wait. I recommend you don't wait in line since you can find much better places to eat across the street!
Well arranged tour. Great choices of the three canyons and the two hotels and great recommendations of the restaurants for lunches and dinners.
I love this small multi culture group tour. We talk, sing and share our cultures. Bryce Canyon is amazing beautiful even in a rainy day. Zion canyon trail walk take me close to the nature scene
Just as it said on the tin. Great Guide who covered everything with good humour and knowledge. Hotels were OK and meals were well advised. No complaints at all, our expectations were met following all the pre trip promotion.
It was a wonderful way to see all these fantastic places, we could not have driven it and seen it all. Well done . Sue from Australia
This tour turned out to be perfect for my group. My kids are 10 and 12 and we also brought my uncle who is 77. The trip was not too physically demanding and there were frequent stops for break. The time spent at each site was too short for my wife and I buthe fine for our group.
The tour was perfect! It more than exceeded my expectations. Our tour group was fantastic. We had folks from the UK, France, Israel and Italy! My S/O and I are from the US, so it was neat having international folks on our tour. Everyone was well behaved and on time for our time limits at each stop. Manuelle was a fantastic tour guide, full of information and jokes! I wish there had been more time to explore each stop, but in order to see all the things in the three days you have to move quickly. Over 1,000 miles are covered in three days. The fact that the tour starts and ends in Vegas gave us an excuse to see Vegas too, which was a blast. All in All, I would say this tour is worth every penny paid. The only downsides are the lack of extra time and the limited food options, you can expect to pay upwards of 40 for 2 people, every meal that's not included in your trip. We managed to find a REALLY good restaurant when we stayed in Kanab, its down the main drag a bit, past the light on your right. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name, but they have a little bit of everything. But there food prices are much more reasonable and better tasting than the place the tour takes you for lunch and dinner on this day. In Page, the BBQ place fills up really fast, so we decided to pass on that and walked about 1/3 of a mile to the second Mexican restaurant. The prices are fairly reasonable, but the portions are HUGE. They bring a large round platter with your food, and its really good! I ordered their house margarita and when he brought it to me, I thought he brought me the jumbo size and wasn't looking forward to having to pay 13 for it, but it was actually their standard size and was only 7.75. It was easily a 16-20oz Margarita. And it was fantastic. Around 7pm each night the guests are allowed to have free time to do whatever until 7am the next morning, my S/O and I took that time to explore each of the towns of Page and Kanab and we recommend doing the same.
This tour was worth every penny, the main reason being our guide, Dorit! She was warm, laid-back, and very funny.
You cover A LOT of ground, google map the 3 destinations and you'll see how far, but Dorit perfectly balances commentary and breaks so you can soak it all in. Very Highly Recommended!
We traveled the last week of Sept - first week of October 2014. This was an excellent experience for the family. It was a fun packed three days. We saw so much in such a few days. The tour guides were great and keep everything running as smooth as possible with 21 people on board. I would recommend this trip to anyone. It was a great end to a Las Vegas trip and we will definitely go back.
