We were very pleased with our trip from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon. Everything went very smoothly. The staff were very courteous and helpful starting with the shuttle driver, and airport staff and flight staff. The shuttle driver in the Grand Canyon was also very knowledgeable. We would take another trip with Viator.com.
Great tour for the south rim and lots of information about canyon as well as friendly service
My 17 year old son did not wish to go and his words "Look at some old rocks", cold not understand why I wanted to! He loved it ! He took picture after picture and we stood right out on what looked like a diving board above the canyon it was simply brilliant. The flight and the bus journey was a breeze we all loved it. Also seeing the South Rim is as the locals put it the "Real Grand Canyon" far better than the west rim and the Skywalk where you are restricted on pictures.
Thanks for a wonderful experience. We highly recommend this to anybody - it is truly memorable.
Excellent. To fully appreciate both the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon it has to be viewed from the air, with the added bonus of the coach tour to the best view points on the south rim. We went on the late morning trip which returned late afternoon giving wonderful views of the sun casting shaddows over the canyon, amazing.
Really good trip, from being picked up to being dropped off everything was perfect. The canyon was absolutely awesome.
It seems like a lot of money, but it is absolutely worth it for those short on time who want part of the "proper" Grand Canyon experience. Standing on the edge of the chasm and looking into the abyss made it worth every penny. The walk-around tour guide was a little average, particularly as he was able to speak Japanese but at the cost of it being difficult to understand his English at times. He was friendly enough, but also seemed more interested in listing facts about the local wildlife and foliage rather than the Canyon itself. That said, it was easy enough to ditch the guide and make our own way around at the drop off points. The driver guide on the bus itself was excellent. Overall, an excellent experience, but having seen it like this, I now wish I'd taken the time to drive it all myself with no constraints - it's all so beautiful!
This tour was the best. We booked the 7am flight and were picked up exactly on time in a comfortable transfer bus. The terminal was immaculate, with a comfortable waiting area and complimentary coffee. The check-in staff were pleasant, fast and efficient so much so that we left a little earlier than scheduled. The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everyone had a window seat. The flight itself was splendid with an enjoyable commentary. We were whisked away immediately upon arrival at the Grand Canyon airport on our comfortable coach for the tour of the South Rim and given our boxed lunch which was entirely adequate. On completion of the coach tour our plane was waiting for us and we got straight off the coach and on to the plane for a lovely flight back to Las Vegas where we immediately transferred to our bus for the hotel. The whole operation was seamlessly efficient. Great value for money. Congratulations.
It was great - the bus driver/guide did a nice job and the plane ride was really good too.
The trip was simple to book, and easily exceeded our expectations. The Grand Canyon is stunning and we saw it from two great spots, with no feeling of being crowded or herded at all. The tour guide was brilliant, well-informed and enthusiastic, and the trip was organised well for the most part. I have a couple of minor quibbles - our pick up from the hotel turned up about 45 minutes late, which made us nervous about whether we had been forgotten, and there was a bit of a queue for lunch so a little more time set aside for the meal would have been nice. These are minor points, though, and were outweighed massively by the rest of the tour, which was superb. It was not cheap but it was excellent value for money.
- Bus driver was on time at the hotel & he was very friendly. - When we checked in at the airport office, the workers were very helpful & were able to get my wife and I a window seat on the better side of the plane to see Hoover Dam clearly. Recommendation: ask for window seat on plane-entrance side because you can see the Hoover Dam very good on this side, at least on this trip. - Views from plane from airport all the way to the Grand Canyon South Rim were amazing. Take lots of photos from the plane windows as my digital photos turned out amazing! - Bus tour guide was very friendly and had lots of great information about Grand Canyon! - Lunch buffet was fair, the least favorite of this entire trip experience.
The tour was great but were a couple of problems. First, there was no BBQ lunch on the rim as stated and when we returned to the airport in Las Vegas the terminal was locked up. The pilot managed to get us in. It also took them about 45 minutes to round up a bus for us to get back to the hotel. Overall the trip was great and I would do it again.
Perfect way to see the Grand canyon, the views from the sky were fabulous if a little perturbed by someone with a fragile stomach, not really the operators issue.
The south rim ground tour was spectacular, but suffered a little from a poor intercom on the coach so sat at the rear we got little of the commentary.
