5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2011

This was the best trip. We had the SUV for two days so we were able to not only go to the grand canyon but also other places in Las Vegas

4 star rating: Recommended July 2011

watch out for the car insurance which was extra $75 and we were charged $80 for a tank of fuel which we only used 70% of so opt out and return it refuelled .
The Hualapai Ranch was very disappointing and I got food poising from eating the chicken at the evening meal , save you money and make it a day trip to the canyon as it only takes 2 .5 hours each way using the new hoover dam bridge.
The canyon itself was amazing and the helicopter ride to the bottom was well worth doing

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2011

The views were spectacular. The food was awful its years since I had food canteen style and now I know why! The first impressions of the "Ranch" were absolutely awful, I dot think cheap and nasty covers it. I suspect if you had children they would love the "Ranch" and the campfire etc but adults only, don't think so, well certainly not these adults! I would tell friends just hire a car and do a day trip.
