Randy did everything he could to make our trip easy, enjoyable and interesting.
The Hummer Tour started at 6am prompt. Antonio chatted amiably on our way to pick our two remaining tourists. He offered to stop for coffee and informed us that he had plenty of cold drinks and snacks for us. The first stop was a bonus visit to the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, He took pictures of us with our cameras as he continued to do each stop. En route he provided entertaining commentary with his own Latino twist. A detour through the Mojave desert showed off the Hummer's off-road prowess. He easily negociated the entry into the Hualapai reservation. At the South Rim of the Grand Canyon we had plenty of time to take in the spectacular vista as well as visiting the Skywalk. Buffet lunch was taken at an Old Western Town including an impressive Close Magic Show. On the way back to the Hoover Dam we stopped in desert to observe unspoilt nature. The Memorial Bridge provided a spectacular viewpoint of the Hoover Dam before crossing the Dam by Hummer. As a final bonus we stopped off in Boulder City to look for Big Horn Sheep. For once my bad luck no whales in a whale watching cruise in Reykjavik turned to good luck and we saw a wild herd grazing.
Overall the Hummer Tour was a joy thanks to our friendly guide Antonio and to the amazing attractions. A perfect ten tour!
Fantastic day ..must go and do this ..we had Randy as our tour guide he was fab ..full of knowledge great person to spend day with grand canyon is out of this world
The trip was very enjoyable and comfortable. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting points along the trip.I would recommend this trip over a tour bus trip because it's more personal and relaxing
Had a fantastic day at the canyon in the Hummer, Antonia driver/guide was great, very informative, had good timing on when to avoid the queues by leaving early getting to canyon first the Hoover dam on return it worked really well we never waited in any queues or on any coaches that take you into the canyon, he was also great at taking unusual photos if you are brave enough to hover near the edges lol, family and friends at home were amazed by the photos. The skywalk was a good experience although don't think hubby would agree lol. It's not as pricey as we thought at 20 not including tax, apparently they had dropped prices recently, to make you aware there is absolutely no taking of photos on the skywalk in any form, belongings get placed in a locker before hand and you get protective covers to put over your shoes, it's a shame as we didn't see what the big deal was taking a photo, but needless to say they have the obligatory photographer taking photos for you to purchase at a rediculous cost. Don't bother with them you can get more than enough amazing shots of the west side of the canyon from your own viewpoint. We also enjoyed the off road experience on return through the forest to see the Joshua trees, beware it can be bumpy but it was great fun. On return you will be able to go over the bridge for fab photos of the dam. All in all a fab day, with a fairly good lunch thrown in of chicken or beef, salad and water. Antonio thank you for making it a most enjoyable tour. Would definitely recommend
Brilliant tour, knowledgable tour guide. We were apprehensive about driving to the canyon but the trip went so quickly. Our tour guide was brilliant. The best day of our trip to the USA. A definite must-do
Our guide Scott knew more about Nevada and the Canyon than Wikipedia! Great trip!
Randy was incredible. Knowledgeable and friendly one of the two best trips I have taken part in in the last three years. I would recommend this trip with this particular guide - and that is something that I rarely do.
A perfect day. Our guide, Antonio, picked us up on time and couldn't have been more helpful or accomodating throughout the day. We had bonus stops at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, and also at Hoover Dam. In addition, the short off-road trip through the Joshua Trees really added another dimension to the day. The canyon itself is breathtaking and no description or photograph can do it justice. Whilst we didn't book it, there were no queues at the Skywalk, so managed to add this to the trip not essential, but very enjoyable nonetheless. I would highly recommend this tour, and huge thanks to Antonio for a brilliant day.
This was a fantastic tour. The driver Antonio couldn't have done more to make sure we had a great day, he was even our own personal photographer taking pictures of us with our phones, which made a huge difference to the trip. He was very knowledgeable and gave us the history of the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. I've been on the Helicopter trip before which was great but I think this is much better as you are on the ground and actually in the Canyon, there's absolutely nothing like it! It was truly breathtaking. The lunch included was really nice. Chicken or shredded beef, with creamy mash and gravy and corn on the cob and a bowl of salad, with a cookie. There were also snacks and drinks in the Hummer if we felt peckish. The driver stopped on the way so we could pick up breakfast as it was an early start, to be honest he couldn't have done more. I highly rate this trip and would do it all over again.
Wow an amazing trip and Scott our guide was brilliant, he was very informative and a great host to our day. We had debated whether to do helicopter trip only but doing both the drive there and then the flight, was definitely the best option to experience the canyon. We had no delays and this trip was a highlight to our holiday.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Randy was a great guide with an amazing knowledge of the Grand Canyon, Hoover dam, and everything else on the tour. Would definitely recommend.
We cannot recommend highly enough Big Horn Tours.
A trip in a Hummers was such a treat - comfort even when off road. Plenty of drinks and snacks were available.
Our Driver/Tour guide Antonio was great, nothing was too much trouble and he was more than happy to take photos of us at the great viewpoints we visited. His knowledge was very informative and he showed interest in us too.
We had a really great day with Big Horn Tours, and Antonio, and would definitely use them again when in Las Vegas.

Our guide Randy was fantastic, knowledgeable and interesting. He ensured we missed the queues and got the best vantage points for both views and photo's, which he was all to happy to take to make sure both myself and my wife were included.
The hummer was clean, comfortable and cool, snacks and drinks were included on route and a great lunch served during the day.
Thanks Randy your a star and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip with you.
Great tour and company, I had inadvertently booked the tour on the wrong day and the company were fantastic in rearranging for us without penalty. Our guide was Antonio, he was fabulous, very knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable. We would highly recommend, this tour, the hummer experience was fun and very comfortable.
Awesome tour! Randy was the perfect guide knowledgeable, easy going and courteous. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a real Grand Canyon experience.
Definitely a must for anyone who dislikes massive coach tours and enjoys personalised attention.
Our guide Antonio was extremely knowledgeable about the Canyon and Hoover Dam and we enjoyed his telling of stories and histories through the tour as well as guiding us where we needed to go.
All sites visited we amazing, with the off road in Joshua Tree a definite highlight. With little to no traffic around, its like you're literally in the middle of nowhere.
Do NOT hesitate to take this tour! My son and I did and it was FABULOUS. Our guide was great. Total comfort. We did not have to worry about waiting in any lines. You have two different stops/views of the Grand Canyon. I would encourage you to add on the skywalk. Fantastic day. Very memorable.
What a fantastic tour, our tour guide Randy was brilliant, how was really knowledgeable and interesting explaining the history of the place, the hummer was comfortable and fun. Lunch was good. The grand canyon skywalk tour view was incredible, great time and would thoroughly recommend it
Loved this trip. Mike did an awesome job. We were able to avoid crowds. Loved the Hummer... Avoiding the big tourist bus!
Great trip to see grand canyon in a day! Started early and stayed ahead of
tour bus crowds. Guide was very informative. Would do it again and other
My name is Gregg Parker, my wife Cindy booked a tour for our family on April 22, 2016.We were out to Vegas to celebrate my son Kyle turning 21. My daughter was Jennifer.24 was with us. We wanted to have our kids see the Grand Canyon while we were out there. Our tour guide was Randy.
We really did not know what to expect.
I just want to say that Randy was fantastic. When we tell of our experience, we cant say enough of how much we enjoyed the tour. We had a most awesome time. Randy was very knowledgeable and made the drive seem very short.
Listening to all of his facts and fun stories kept everyone's interest. Even my son and daughter commented on how much they enjoyed our tour to the Grand Canyon.
I know there will be many fond memories of our day with Randy and our trip to the West Rim.
