    Traveler Tips

    If you can, make the trail to Bright Angel, it's easy to walk, pavemented, just don't forget to bring water.
    The only thing I would advise is to take a jumper for on the coach as the air conditioning makes it quite chilly!
    For a one day trip without having to drive for almost 400 miles back and forth by yourself, it's worth it.

    Amazing view!
    Monique_M, May 2022
    We missed our scheduled trip but they were able to reschedule the next day to the West Grand Canyon. It was amazing, fun, so many interesting facts. The view is beautiful. We purchased extra tickets for the skywalker and tour guide (Gia). It was well worth it!!
    Highly recommend this tour.

    As a tour guide, David was knowledgeable, entertaining, and informative. Very personable and easygoing to get along with. Professional all the way. Drivers Pedro and relief driver Lupe were very safe and capable behind the wheel. If you want to see the Grand Canyon, Route 66, and learn about the region, this tour is for you. It's a very long day, but for my wife and I, well worth it.

    Was an okay trip with sufficient stops. Dave our guide got a little tiresome especially with the "hard rock". Enjoyed movies on way back more. Sack lunch good. Supper stop left something to be desired, price was good though. Probably wouldn't do again.

    The Grand Canyon is a miracle, the time to stay there is a little short, hope to stay there a little more time to explore more of Grand Canyon.

    Lovely experience
    Adrijana_T, May 2022
    Grand Canyon is a beautiful place to see. It's a long bus ride to reach the South Rim, but it was worth it. We had strong winds on the way, but with driver John I did not even feel it. David the tour guide was good.

    I’ve always wanted to see the Grand Canyon and I had a wonderful time it was beautiful I can’t wait to go back and see it again
    Grand Canyon Tour is a Grand Experience
    Arthur_G, May 2022
    It is a very long journey from Las Vegas to the Canyon South rim. Around 15 hours and there is nothing much to see on the way. Route 66 tour stop was nice. 3 hours is more than enough to see the Grand Canyon from top. To go down one needs more time. You must have good legs. There are many points to take in the views. One thing I did not like was we had to pay extra 20 dollars for the guide in the park. It should be included. How does a person visiting for the first time know, a guide is needed or not.(the guide did tell us whether we can take her or go along our own). Our guide was VIVI. She was good.

    I had a very nice experience on the Grand Canyon tour. Our tour guide Brenda & bus driver John were very nice people. The lunch stop & dinner stop was a plus. I bought great souvenirs from the tour. I took plenty of amazing pics of the Canyon. Note: the bus was a bit cold so please bring a jacket & the bus is only equipped with the sockets for your phone so please bring a plug. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this tour to family & friends. 🙂

    Was a great tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide, David. It was a long time to be on the bus, but the canyon was worth it.
    A Must Do activity!
    Candace_H, May 2022
    VeeVee was our tour guide and she made the trip such a memorable and exciting experience. She was very knowledgeable with great facts about the canyon that I never knew. Her personality and humor made this a fun occasion!
