This was great. We loved traveling at our own pace and will do this trip again when we're back in Nevada. My only recommendation is making sure you have a full tank of gas before leaving Vegas. There aren't many options once you get into Arizona.

Great tour! It was nice to be able to explore the canyon at our own pace. We were pick up from our hotel on time, driver was very very nice and shared helpful hints about speeding traps in boulder city. We got a chevrolet tranverse, nice and comfy. If u go pick the bigger SUV , u r going to need it.

We had read a lot of reviews about organised trips to the Grand Canyon and decided on the self drive so that we could please ourselves and run to our own schedule. I'm so glad we did this as we had an amazing time without having to worry about getting to buses on time! The drive to the Canyon is a mini adventure in itself with some great points to stop off on the way for photographic opportunities. When we picked up the car, we were a bit disappointed that we didn't have sat nav but we were provided with a map and full detailed instructions on how to get there. We were offered a smaller car with sat nav but we refused, fortunately we did as a small car probably couldn't handle the dirt road that you need to drive on to get there! The Grand Canyon is a spectacular place. We did the full package - boat trip, helicopter and sky walk and I would wholeheartedly recommend it. We went in July so the canyon floor was HOT but we were provided with water after our boat trip. The views are fantastic from all vantage points but our highlight was Guano point where you can climb up some rocks for an even more fantastic view - slightly scary however! We had our meal at the ranch - basic food but tasty and plentiful. There was a cowboy shoot out on our arrival and you can have a go at axe throwing or horse riding if you fancy. All in all this was an amazing trip, not be be missed, made better by being able to please yourself all day.

Fantastic trip, great price, everything ran smoothly from booking on line, to dropping the car back. Couldn't have asked for a better value for money day out

The trip was wonderful and the view spectacular. I enjoyed the opportunity to spend as much time at one location as we wanted and not being rushed along on a pre-planned schedule. The people were great and the food at Guano Point was excellent. There was more food than I expected and it was delicious.

This is the best way to go. The SUV drive yourself from Vegas allows you to be in total comfort and to get there in your own time. We did the Helicopter, Sky Walk and Boat ride as well which was great. Lunch at the ranch was also great qualtity. All booked through Viator.

Fantastic day out. The 'off-road' experience was brilliant driving along a 14 mile stretch of unmade road. The Hertz never-lost system did exactly what it says on the tin! Would recommend to anyone who likes to drive. Huge 7-seater SUV
