This place is awesome no words can describe how great it is. The perception of how grand the canyon is can only be experienced by being in it. It is overwhelming, it's size, it's colour,it's beauty is amazing. You have to seat down, take a deep breath to really believe you are actually there. Definitely a place to visit and remember forever!
Who would've ever thought there was a Lions den or sanctuary in the desert? Well there just happens to be one and it holds some famous history of the Las Vegas strip. In fact the lions which are at the sanctuary are former strip entertainers. They now live in this nice retirement community on the south end of town. They appear to be living the good life and are viewed by many tourists daily. I sure enjoyed seeing my family enjoy the small park where you can see many happy lions. It was a lot of fun and if you happen to have a young child in the family I highly recommend taking them for the visit. They will be glad you did.
The Lion’s Ranch is far from the Strip, but it totally worth a visit. Despite of the name, they also have other animals as emus, ostriches and even a giraffe! However, the lions are the main attraction here and the staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable. I took my 2 year old niece and she loved the experience.
The tour is very well organized. Different buses pick up in different hotels, so you don't get stuck in the Strip's traffic for hours before the tour starts. All the buses meet at the terminal, where the groups are divided by tour and a detailed explanation is given to us on how to proceed and what to expect. We then check in and please, pay attention to what the clerk says when getting your voucher - even though they received my reservation for the West Rim, they had placed my party on a South Rim tour - which they promptly fixed. Don't forget to have your breakfast before boarding the bus, as no stops are made but the Hoover Dam one - where there are no concessions to buy food. If you forgot your breakfast, or if you didn't have time for one, the bus terminal has a coffee shop where you can get some to go. The bus was nice, with restroom in perfect using order, our driver Jay was good and very funny too. The Grand Canyon is spectacular, the once dirt road is now paved (which makes for a more comfortable ride) and it is very easy to get around in the West Rim of the Canyon.
excellent tour and once in a lifetime trip for my 50th. Well recommend trip which is better the copter from vegas as you see more and spend more time at the canyon
Our driver Dwayne was great! Thought we would sleep on the bus but he kept us too energized and intrigued! Hoover Dam stop could have been longer than 15 minutes, very rushed considering the time at the Canyon is plentiful.
We had a fabulous day with Thomas our driver and tour guide. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour. Our Skywalk was just massive, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Thanks very much. June and Steve
The trip to Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon was an awesome experience. Walter kept us occupied and informed so we did not have time to be bored with the ride. The coach was comfortable and everyone we encountered was pleasant. It was definitely time well spent.
A fantastic day out and worth every cent. You cannot believe the sheer size and scale of either the Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon until you have actually been there. This was one of the highlights of our trip. I would love to go back and hike some of the trails there. We took the Helicopter and Boat Ride options, which are a great way of experiencing the size and beauty of Grand Canyon from a different perspective. A very well organised tour.
Although it's an early start and we had to pay an additional $20 at the tour centre which I still have no idea what for (we were told admin costs so ticket price isn't as cheap as first portrayed) this is a great trip. Our driver was Bruce and he kept us entertained the whole day. Fab day!
