Great + (Grand) Trip from Las Vegas!
Stephanie_P, Nov 2022
This tour was simply GRAND! My family and I had an amazing time taking in all of the sights throughout the day and felt like when it ended we had learned and seen SO much. Our tour guide, Alex, took great care of us and was extremely accommodating to the total group throughout. He kept us on track, shared a wealth of information, and was very kind. He knew all of the best spots to take photos and was more than willing to snap a few for us. I would highly recommend this tour and taking the short trip from Vegas to see stunning sites. 10/10
Fantastic Experience!

Personal attention for small groups
Juanita_P, Oct 2022
Fun. mama /Lankun is a joy. She took extra care of baby/Tommy. She is ver y knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Lots of walking but she held my hand all the way up to the top of the rock for some fantastic photos. She entertained us (6). Lots of water and funny stories. Very personal attention. October 13,2022. Small group tour.
Small group tour a must!
Debra_F, Oct 2022
Great experience. Small group tour is the way to go. We were able to get through any lines much quicker than the big bus tour and had more time to spend seeing the awesome sights. Our guide was very informative and fun. We could stay as long or as little as we wanted and the people in the tour group were fun to be with. We even got back a little early!! Definitely worth doing!!
Amazing Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam tour
Joe_H, Aug 2022
Mama was an excellent guide and gave us a memorable experience! The scenery was beautiful and breathtaking and getting to experience the Native American culture. We would definitely suggest this tour to anyone and the next time we visit we will be using it again.

Highlight of our trip!
Rebecca_B, Jun 2022
Amazing day with fab tour guide Lankun, who was knowledgeable about the local area and gave us plenty of time to explore at each stop. We stopped at the Joshua trees, two Canyon points, the Hoover Dam, and Boulder City, and (thanks to Lankun) we have loads of great photos to take home and remember our experience by! A much more personal experience than a large coach tour. Well organised and good communication leading up to the day - would highly recommend!
Very good trip
