arrived at the pick up hotel in santa monica, when mini bus arrived they had no record of our trip on their itinery, driver took us anyway to anaheim after contacting his office, after that we booked in at anaheim but still did not appear on several itineries on our way to vegas , trip went well apart from fact no one told us the imperial palace had been renamed the quad even after arriving in vegas, overall the trip was great despite the distance travelled
We had a great trip! Vegas lives up to its name 'Sin City', but the true highlight was visiting the Grand Canyon. We went on Christmas and was confronted by a snow covered Canyon (we'll at the top of the canyon), which contrasted brilliantly with the wonder.
Pickups were well organised and always on time. Buses were comfortable and drivers and guides informative and friendly. We got a lovely room at the Imperial Hotel - it was clean and comfortable. Grand Canyon was beautiful. We got good value for money so it was 3 days well spent.
Very pleased we did this but would have liked to have seen more of the Hoover Dam and the Canyon. Not possible because of the distances involved.
So much fun. The bus ride to and from LA to Las Vegas was a lot of fun and the service was brilliant. The accommodation was very central, straight across from Cesar's Palace and up the road from the Bellagio Hotel for the fountain performance which was amazing. The tour to the Grand Canyon was long, but worth the wait when you got to see the Grand Canyon. Lunch on this tour was not great though... Overall a good package to do if you have the time.
The tour and the guide was much better than i expected. Especially the Grand Canyon tour guide.
The bus arrived on time at our pick up location in Santa Monica and transported us to the main terminal in Anaheim where we boarded our bus to Las Vegas. The company and transfer was efficient and organized. We received two snacks and two drinks during our ride and stopped in Barstow along the way (going and returning). The bus hostess on the way to and from Las Vegas was somewhat irritating, but I'd say she was suffering from job burn out. Otherwise, we were extremely happy with our driver and guide on the second day and our 14 hour excursion to the Grand Canyon. Our guide was extremely pleasant, interesting, informative and truly positive. We also enjoyed his videos on the history of Las Vegas Part 1 and 2 and the Terry Fator Las Vegas ventriliquist show video on the way back. I'd definitely recommend this 3 day tour to those who are in a hurry and have a limited amount of time. Although it was a great trip to the GC, we only spent about a total two hours in two different viewpoint locations there--long drive for little time spent at the GC. Otherwise, no complaints!
Good value for money, especially since the buses from LA to Vegas to Grand Canyon are so comfortable. The only downside is that I wish there was more time at Grand Canyon, but I guess this is all that can be squeezed into one day. Overall, a very affordable and comfortable tour that also gives you ample free time in Las Vegas.
The destinations are definitely great, but it's so short you can't get enough of it. Also the trip details mention that the first 2 days would be in Las Vegas while the third would be in Grand Canyon, but instead we were taken to Grand Canyon on day 2, so by next day we were really tired to make use of the third day, which is actually half a day. The hotel was so-so. Otherwise it was enjoyable.
Our guide from Vegas to the Grand canyon was REALLY BAD!!! It was a six-hour bus trip with really bad jokes, bad music and bad service!! The tour itself was absolutely fantastic - it snowed in Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon was AWESOME.
Long hours in the bus didn't thrill me, but the Grand Canyon sure did. It is the most amazing place, the colours and formations are quite superb. Las Vegas is all glitz and colour at night, but not sure I'd hurry back. Saw some interesting places on the trip that were explained well by coach staff, but disappointed we didn't get to stop at the Hoover Dam, the most we saw of it was when it was lit up at night on the way back.
The hotel pick up LA was late and needed phone calls to resolve. Bus was very comfortable. The Imperial Palace hotel is a disaster area as the whole frontage is being rebuilt. Drop off point (and pick up) is a long walk away via a hotel next door! Rooms are tired and and in need of renovation. In short this hotel should not be used by Viator customers!
The trip to the grand canyon on the other hand was awesome.
Overall worth doing BUT avoid the Imperial Palace
We would give Grand Canyon 5 stars but Las Vegas was not at all to our taste. The hotel was certainly not the best and that dampened our enthusiasm in Las Vegas. The buses were excellent and our driver to Grand Canyon was superb. You have to experience the sights at the Canyon they are breathtaking.
In general it is well organised trip with pleasant and entertaining coach drivers and tour guides. Natacha our guide on the coach to/from Las Vegas was very helpful with great sense of humor which made the trip nice.
The only wish would be to have the 7 am collection for Las Vegas trip from our Hollywood hotel rather than having to make our way to Roosvelt hotel ( near the Codak theatre).
Also morning collection for Grand canyon trip from hotel in Las Vegas was unclearly described on the vouchers. And there was no sign at collection point , we were quite worried we wait at wrong point.
Otherwise quite intense but very informative trip.
