Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Canyon, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

Guide was very helpful and everything on time and had a great driver.Day out wss brilliant and guide had everything organised.
Not as expected
Vickie_M, Jan 2023
First of all, I think the South Rim is much prettier than the West Rim...of course this is not the vendor's fault. What is the vendor's fault is...not enough breakfast choices nor were we told we could modify the choices (overheard him asking restaurant if they could). MOST OF ALL...NOT TELLING US WE HAD TO EAT OUTSIDE. IT'S JANUARY FOR GOD'S SAKE!! NEARLY FROZE!!
Charlie was a fantastic...

A must do tour...
Aileen_G, Jan 2023
Johnny was a fab host on our bus...wasn't expecting a comedian to accompany us...definitely made the journey to and from the sites so enjoyable. Our driver Carlos drove professionally and even on rough terrain we felt perfectly safe on his bus! Highly recommend this tour!

Bassheva_B, Jan 2023
Tony, the tour guide was excellent. He was interesting and funny and did a great job giving over information about the Hoover dam and Grand Canyon without talking too much. He was so helpful and even offered to take pictures for everyone. The driver, Charlie, was wonderful as well. It was a great experience and I definitely would recommend to others.
Great time, great tour guide, great driver

Great Day Trip from Vegas
Arlene_S, Jan 2023
Parker was a wonderful tour guide. He made the bus trip entertaining. He knew his Grand Canyon/Hoover Dam facts, but he was also a great at keeping us entertained and it helped pass the time on the drive to the Grand Canyon. Eric was a wonderful driver! This is a great way to see the Grand Canyon in a day. Very accessible and so, so beautiful!
Nice trip enjoying the nature sculpture
Carolina_M, Jan 2023
Our tour guide was very sweet and has a good attitude during the trip. She gave us a good information about the hualapi tribe and Grand Canyon formations and geology. I can recommend this trip to other tourist who dont have access to a private transportation and for people who likes adventure and nature. The only thing is we didn't spend enough time in the Hoover dam I would have liked more time, and I expected we were going down in the building dam but we just saw the dam from the front over the bridge so we couldn't take pictures
Lunch not worth for the $$$ paid
Muthukumar_L, Jan 2023
Bus operator and your guide were really amazing. Tour guide is very interactive and engaged till the end of the trip. However, lunch is so pathetic and no at all eatable. Experience with lunch is so bad for the money we paid, otherwise rest all is good. If lunch is good, would have given 5 star.
Charlie was an excellent...
Lance_A, Jan 2023
Charlie was an excellent guide, very entertaining, as well as Bernice. Was a great experience, definitely would do it again.
Excellent tour, felt safe and was able to truly explore, all in a day!
Puja_D, Jan 2023
Amazing tour. Pickup at the pre-confirmed hotel location was prompt, the tour was efficient and on time, and our tour guide Parker and driver Elvis were both excellent! So funny and pleasant, they made the tour so much more enjoyable! The sites were amazing and we always felt safe and cared for throughout the day.
Rohan_B, Jan 2023
Amazing experience. The journey to the canyons is an experience in itself. The Joshua trees on the way and the view from Eagle point / Guano point is breathtaking. You can’t miss Hoover dam too.
Great experience! Will recommend!
Wesner_P, Jan 2023
Our tour guide Ian was very helpful and really knowledgeable. Our driver Layla was great. The trip was as described. We enjoyed our time at the Hoover Dam and the time given was enough.
