Awesome experience. Enjoyed it immensely
The Grand Canyon South Rim tour was breath taking! My family and I really enjoyed. The bus driver was knowledgeable and informed us along the way. We enjoyed the 3D movie at the museum, as it was short and to the point. We got just the right amount of time to enjoy the canyon before heading back to Vegas. We were there a total of 3 hours. It is a must if you visit Vegas to get away from the strip for a day.
This tour is great. Its a long trip out to the Grand Canyon and worthwhile to have someone driving so you can really enjoy the time you have when you get there. The Grand Canyon is truly amazing and beautiful. Very insightful narrative on the bus too. Highly recommend!
Great tour... but I have to be honest.. Grand Canyon West Rim is a better tour!
I surprised my FiancĂ© with the helicopter trip as a bonus to the Grand Canyon trip, and he was so happy. The experience was truly overwhelming, so very beautiful and worth every penny! It was a long day but there was a film on the coach, the driver was fantastic and there was an interesting tour guide audio tape that played on the way to the Grand Canyon. We stopped at the Hoover Dam first, which is an experience in itself and there were stops for a MacDonalds on the way and Subway on the return journey not included in price. On the helicopter trip we were given a lovely packed lunch part of package, where people not on the tour had a meal voucher to eat on their stop where the Imax cinema was. We could not go to the Imax cinema as we did the helicopter. When we arrived at the coach station after being picked up from our hotel we everybody was given the option to upgrade if they wanted including a luxury Mercedes trip fewer people 4 or 6 I think which obviously would have been more comfortable and free bottled water for the duration of the day, but I must say that the coach journey was comfortable and very enjoyable. Well worth it! We had 2 stops after the helicopter trip at different parts of the Grand Canyon although these were mighty cold and we didn'tt spend long looking at the Canyon, we got a coffee, looked at the souvenirs and sat on the coach to wait for the hard core sight seers. Fantastic and I can't thank the staff enough!!
The tour was excellent and our tour guide was funny and punctual. I loved that! Be on time people or we will leave you!
If this is a first time visit to Las Vegas or anywhere close, definitely take out time to go to Grand Canyon. Its a natural wonder like which I have never seen such anywhere in the world. Now, if you have decided to go to Grand Canyon, do go to South Rim as this is the most scenic of all the Grand Canyon viewing points. Would rate the trip as below:
Plan as described on the website
Pricing as describerd on the website.
Timing as described on the website: started at 6 AM pickup from The Venetian and got dropped at 10:30 PM at the hotel. It is definitely tiring
The only areas of improvement are:
- Comfort of the bus: Could have been more spacious seats to accommodate a bulky guy like me
- Pick up from the hotel takes almost 1.5 hours to complete in the morning
All in all - a definite recommendation. !
An incredible trip! The tour guide was informative and the bus was comfortable. The only downside was that we only stayed at the canyon for 2 hours. Overall, it was a great experience!
Great trip out to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, the whole day exceeded our expectations, we are just so pleased we booked this trip and we will remember it always.
It was a long trip going to grand canyon but definitely worth it! for those who want to see more of the canyon i suggest getting the pink jeepney tour:
the bus trip was good. Driver was full of anecdotes kept the trip interesting. there was also a tape? about the history of Vegas as well to keep you entertained. They did encourage you to buy a helicopter ride or jeep exploration. we didn't bother there is plenty to see just walking around.
the only bad experience was the lunch stop before seeing the canyon, you are given vouchers for a meal at the stop, pizza hut outlet, you only have a limited time there but when you have 6 or 7 coach loads of people descending on a place built to accommodate 2 coach loads you end up in a massive queue and when you get to the food service your choice is limited to what's left, then there is no seats available to sit and have your food as they cannot cope with the amount of people, And there are places across the road empty, as the vouchers are only valid for the one place.
the grand canyon is fantastic and its a fantastic day out.
Loved this trip. It was about 18 hours in total for the day, but didnt really feel that long at the time. They first picked us up at 6am and stopped at a few other hotels to pick more people up. We then got to the bus terminal and they checked us in, there was a coffee shop and bathroom at terminal so we got to get breakfast and use the bathroom if needed.
We then got to the bus, found our seats and we were off. The bus had a bathroom too, not that many people used it as we stopped at lot but it was good to know it was there incase of an emergancy. After about 1 and a half hours we stopped at the hoover dam, we got 20 mins here. Got to see the dam then back on the bus. There was bathrooms here too but the line was crazy.
About 2 hours of driving we stopped again at McDonalds. The time betwneen these stops went really fast. The driver spoke a lot and tbere was little videos about the towns we were passing. After this was another 2 hours. At this place we got lunch, there was a few options for lunch including pizza, sandwiches and chicken and rice. We watched an imax video too. I thought that was stupid, we were 15 mins from the GC and we werre watching a movie about it. After an hour here we made our first stop at the GC, it was amazing here, we didnt stay long becuase the altitude was low. But the views here werre awesome. We then went to another point were the lodges were. We watched the sunset here, i loved the views here and we had about 2 hours, it was nice to just sit and watch the views. We got back on the bus after that and they put a movie on. We only had 1 stop on the way home, it went pretty fast. I brought a tablet with my own movies and some snacks so i was pretty comfortable. When we got back to the strip we had to get on anothed bus. This was anouying at the time becuase we had to get off our bus, but they did this to split up the hotels so it was good becuase there wasnt as many stops. We got dropped off at 10pm.
We had a 3 week holiday in the states and this was probably the best day we had. Would recomend it for sure, i am not someone who likes long drives either and i was very comfortable.
This trip was well organised and the included lunch was delicious. We opted for the 2-hour jeep hour which was brilliant, the tour guide took us to the best locations for photos. I wish I could do it all again, one day isn't enough at this awesome place.
The pick-up time was accurate. Lunch was included and it was excellent, there were so many choices. We also selected the tour with 3D movie and were not disappointed. On the way back to Las Vegas, we stop for a bite to eat. I would recommend this tour to anyone who does not want to spend a lot of money.
It was a very long day but there were enough stops plus informational videos and movies on the coach to make it enjoyable. I recommend the upgrade Pink Jeep afternoon tour/IMAX/lunch. We got to visit incredible lookouts with our special guide taking us to his favorite spots! Loved it.
Enough time to See Hoover Dam and Two Grand Canyon Points.
Enough time to See Hoover Dam and Two Grand Canyon Points.
Dream com true to see the Grand Canyon. I even met with my friend whom I haven't seen in years who lives in Vegas. A must do trip!!!
We enjoyed this tour so much.. The views was breathtaking. It is a must for everyone going to Vegas..
The Grand Canyon Tour was unbelievable! I was picked up from my hotel, on time, and from there it was fun. We stopped at the Hoover Dam, for 15 min, took pictures, and we were on our way. I upgraded to the pink jeep tour, and our guide Brady was friendly, informative and the real deal! It was a long day, and worth every moment of it. The Grand Canyon is spectacular!
Wonderful tour! Got to see Hoover Dam with a picture taking stop. There were 2 different areas of the Grand Canyon we visited along with a stop with lunch included and where one can watch a movie or browse their gift shop. The only issue I had was at the end of the tour when they switched bus drivers. He seemed a little disorganized or not knowledgable with the route with getting back to the hotels so got back a little late after this long day.
Highly recommended and a great value for the money. Got to stop at Hoover Dam for a picture stop as well as 2 different areas of the Grand Canyon with a stop for lunch where one can also watch a movie or browse their gift shop. Only complaint would be at the end of the long day and the bus drivers were changed. The new driver seemed disorganized or not too knowledgeable with the route to get us back to the hotel so got back a little late that night..
This trip to the Grand Canyon from Vegas provided us with two great stops at the Canyon and a short stop at
Hoover Dam. The bus was very comfortable but be prepared to be in it for a very long time.
It would have been nice to have something other than Subway offered for supper with a little longer stop but
that of course would have made us even later getting back - it's a trade-off.
The bus driver was informative but not too chatty and I would recommend this trip if you're going to
Vegas and want to see the Canyon/
Great value for money and amazing experience well worth the bus journey. Added extra of visiting Hoover Dam. Highly recommended
