The long bus rides are completely worth what is waiting at the end of the line. The beautiful scenary along the way makes the journey enjoyable. On the way to Vegas, the tour guide makes you giggle and offers beverages/nibbles. Though the trip to the canyon is very long, the tour guide we had made the ride very easy and was happy and sounded like he enjoyed his job. He gave good information and made an effort to get to know everyone as much as he could. The Grand Canyon was by far the highlight of the trip! Photographs do not do this natural beauty any justice, you will have to go see it for yourself!

Absolutely loved this tour, Las Vegas was great fun!!! The bus journey to Vegas was long but you had refreshments and films to keep you entertained. Only downside is you have to walk or catch a taxi to your hotel, which you were only told about when getting into Vegas, the bus stops at Harrahs.
The Grand Canyon tour is again a very long day but worth it as when you get to the canyon you have the option to walk along the rim( highly recommended!!!)
The hotel was brilliant, great location, smaller compared to the other hotels around!! This tour was over booked but they sorted everything out for me including hotel pickup, flights inc baggage and hotel drop off back in LA!!
Would highly recommend this tour!!

Excellent tour, well organised. Unfortunately it poured with rain at the canyon, but still very good.

I had a fabulous time...Viator really took care of me from departure to return. I'm looking forward to planning my next trip through Viator. Thank you so much for making my 50th birthday a memorable occasion.

We had a very short time to explore this part of the USA so this was a good choice. We only had a few days in LA and really wanted to see the Grand Canyon and I am very glad we did.
My daughter and I were impressed at the organisation and professionalism showed by the collecting, transporting and information delivered whist traveling.
Our coaches to Las Vegas and the later to the Grand Canyon were comfortable and in excellent condition. The tour leader on the coach to Vegas and back was great fun and her Russian jokes a treat. Frosty our driver and tour guide to the Grand Canyon was one of the best I have encountered in my world wide travels. Clear in his instructions so that the whole day was kept on schedule; full of good information and courteous to all. I would try to have him as our tour guide if ever in that area again.
The tour was very good value for money considering the coach trips; accommodation offered and enjoyment experienced. My only reservation would be the time taken in traveling to Las Vegas and then to the Canyon. But that is more my own fault as I had not realised how far it was from LA. Fortunately the time spent travelling was interspersed with excellent information provided, enough pit stops and a hefty lunch on the day to the Grand canyon.
All in all I would highly recommend this tour to others.

The Imperial Palace was great and located in the very center of Las Vegas. Grand Canon tour is the next day, arrival late in the evening. The 3rd day, you're free to visit LV until the bus departure. Lux Bus Company was good and did a relaxed trip.
