Amazing trip. The car hire company picked us up from the hotel which was a good start to the day. However they did not have a SUV available and we were given a 7 seater people carrier! Not what we had hoped for as there were only two of us! Once we had got used to the idea of our mini bus the rest of the trip was fabulous. The drive to the canyon was quite simple and once there the three stops on the tour were well organised with buses running every few minutes so we could spend as long as we liked at each stop. The lunch is very basic but welcome in the heat but the crows that join you at the restaurant are terrifying - swooping in at every opportunity - very scary!! The views are awesome and although the Skywalk is impressive on the third stop we walked around the edge and climbed higher. It was truly indescribable one of the most magnificent places on earth. A definite must if in Las Vegas.

Loved this trip we did the self drive to the Grand Canyon, The waiting time for the Helicopter was slow and the heat on the day was crazy. We enjoyed the helicopter experience and the boat ride, however, the bus tour part due to the heat made it uncomfortable. Can't control the weather though.

Great way to see the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam at your own pace. It was an simple process picking up and dropping off the SUV. The vehicle was in excellent condition and the tour staff was very friendly. They give you a map and the drive only about 2 1/2 hours from Vegas and so beautiful. We were able to stop whenever and wherever we wanted to. We would definitely recommend doing this self drive trip. And booking through Viator was fast and efficient.

Beautiful trip. Best way to see the Grand Canyon. The Suv was first rate and we were able to get it at 7am to get an early start which is a must. The directions were clear and concise. We were able to spend our time at each place as we wanted and not being pushed by a tour guide. Highly reccomend.

Extremely well organised. I've been lucky enough to visit the Grand Canyon by helicopter, small plane and now self drive. The self drive was in my opinion the best experience.

Very pleasant easy tour. Loved being in our own vehicle. We stopped by the Hoover Dam on the way back since we had time. Grand Canyon was breathtaking and Skywalk was really worth the trip.
