Our wondeful tour started at 6AM hotel pick up. Once at the tour facility the check-in process is a little chaotic for so early in the morning but once on the tour bus everything is great. The first stop was the Hoover Dam although this is just a photo op it is still a great stop. Then we were on to our long ride to the Grande Canyon South Rim. Our tour guide Juana Spelling?? was great, his driving was excellent and he kept the tour moving on schedule. The audio narrative information of the famous and not so famous landmarks, Las Vegas, the Mob, Gaming/Gambling Tips,and other general information was a great way to fill the long journey. The movies also were a nice touch! My only comment here is that the volume should be able to be controlled but the paasengers maybe even allow headphone use. During the movie there were times when hearing the words was impossible. We choose to view the IMAX movie well worth it. Gives you a real feel for the whole adventure. After lunch and the movie we headed to the Canyon. It is just a Magnificent Wonder... Grander than my wife and I could ever have imagined. Something that truely needs to be seen in person to be able to understand why is it a wonder of the world. This is a very long day tour leaving our hotel at 6am and returning at 11pm. My only negative comment here is that the 2 meal stops that were made were to McDonalds and Subway... I would suggest that maybe the company review this and try to at least give travellers a more healthy choice for their dinner/ evening stop. Other than the meal stops the Grand Canyon South Rim Tour was a 5 star experience.
We had a lot of fun the weather was great the views were awesome of course we saw a lot of Elk and this little squirrel kept going up to everyone... lots of fun.
so much fun I really enjoyed want to come again with my family.
Fantastic visit to South Rim with upgrades. Our driver, Milton, was wonderful well informed and knowledgeable. He explained many things and also had pertinent dvd's on board about Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. These were informative and gave context to the day, much better than just time-passing movies. I upgraded to include IMAX movie, which provided context and history of what was being seen. At the last moment, I also upgraded to the Jeep and really enjoyed seeing the Canyon up close and personal. You do need to understand that this trip is a commitment to a long, long day -- but so well worth it! Can't wait to go again! Thank you all. . .
It was a great trip and tour bus and guide, the driver was great as well, the only negative thing is just not enough hours in a day to discover the whole Canyon from different points of Rims to tour.
Great Tour! Long day...but well worth it. The Grand Canyon is amazing....
This was an awesome trip. The bus driver did an excellent job considering the amount of time he was behind the wheel. This is a full day from 06 am to approx. 11 pm. The views from the south rim were amazing, but we booked the optional helicopter ride over the canyon where the views were breathtaking, and that made this trip unforgettable.
the trip was excellent, the view's beautiful and the bus ride was comfortable.
highly recommend anyone doing this tour to join the jeep tour, the guides are very pleasent and informative, and you'll experience a VIP like view of the South Rim.
This bus tour was from 6 am to final dropoff at the hotels of 11pm. DO NOT SCHEDULE ANYTHING ELSE THIS DAY. VIATOR NEEDS TO DESCRIBE THE DAYS TIME MORE IN THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS TOUR. The company performing the tour was great and the drivers were highly professional listen to them. Plan on budgeting a generous tip for your driver because they will deserve it.
The tour was great. Roderick, our driver, was very knowledgeable about the area and provided guidance so we could get the most from our time at each stop. Would definitely recommend to others.
It was good experience overall. Our driver was very good and entertaining. Trip itself is a little long but worth it.
The bus journey was long but smooth. Our driver, Roderick, was excellent. He was patient and safe, which is of utmost importance. Once we got to Tusayan, we took an optional 2-hour Jeep tour into the park. Our tour guide Sara was first rate. Knowledgeable, professional, and cheerful, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. She answered all of our questions about the canyon and much more. The IMAX movie was just so-so. I personally found the video footage of the canyon stunning but was disappointed with the storytelling and seemingly random editing. We made it back to Vegas before the 10pm schedule. Yay to Roderick for getting us back in town safely.
This tour was amazing. It was worth it even though it was a long drive. We would love to bring our kids the next time. The Grand Canyon is awesome. So picturesque and splendor. One of God's creation that you will appreciate. You have to pick this tour when you come to Las Vegas!!!
Definitely recommend for a day trip to the Grand Canyon National Park if you only have one day. Our driver Ryan kept us entertained and we'll informed. The drive was long but the stops were well planned. Felt that the drive was actually short even when we were actually out the whole day.
It was an extremely long bus ride. My tale bone started to hurt from all the sitting. However, the views were breath taking and worth the entire day trip to go see. I just wish we had more time to walk around the hoover dam.
Excellent tour. This is the best way to see the majesty of the canyon.
Wonderful trip from the early start to the end... we had a wonderful driver, who was very knowledgeable...
This trip from beginning to end was a true pleasure. Our bus driver Arnica bus number 5704 was a delight. He was knowledgeable of our route and destination. The experience was well worth the extra value of saving. Thank you one more bucket list item checked off.
