We enjoyed the Antelope Canyon tour which was a true attraction. I had some doubt as to the necessity of the Lake Powell Luxurious Airplane Tour but i was thrilled i went on it because the views were unparalleled to a trip i took which didn't offer this option in the past Thus was a truly phenomenal tour. Thank you.
Great tour. Excellent effort and planning can be the recognition of this amazing trip.This positive feed back is for the professional guidance that we got during the trip. As I found during this trip that it was the start of the guiding career of our guide Jack because he was exceptionally attentive to our comments and feedback. We appreciated his work over there and also thought for this review because honest efforts need appreciation. It was a tremendous guidance Jack because you were always there to answer all questions regarding canyon with great confidence. I loved being there as I enjoyed every destination! Thanks
I want to divide this review in some sessions exactly in the same way as I enjoyed the trip. Booking session was really very clear and to the point, as I was confused in some places but all were cleared and answering in a perfect way. So, I can say that the beginning of this trip showed good signs. Picking up session was exactly on time with an amazing driver whose support was enough to give 5 stars to this bus tour. Accommodation session went well as it was of good standard with a bit of high prices but later on excellent services that it was a well deserving package from their side. Main session of reaching destinations was just wow. We had amazing eating options and beauty of destinations and new information about all places was appreciable. Thanks a lot and I do recommend such comfortable tour because everyone who joined this golden bus tour felt stress free. Thanks a lot with lots of love!
i had an amazing time on that tour, one of the thing that i really loved was Lake Powell, it was more than beautiful, i also loved Antelope Canyon so much. I was able to get some very beautiful pictures to show off :D
I had an amazing time on that tour! On my friend's recommendation I booked this tour as I only had one day and was confused between Grand Canyon and Antelope. the Antelope Canyon was more than amazing! we also saw Glen Canyon, and in Page we saw the magnificent Lake Powell , it was really a breathtaking experience for me.
A true value of money. I was planning to visit Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe bend from the last few month but could not get any time from a busy schedule. Instead to long tour I booked this one day trip and at the end of the day I was so happy. It was such a lovely and relaxing experience. The bus was new and seats were comfortable. Mr. L. our guide was realyy knowlwdgable and caring person, and the best part is he was a good photographer as well. Places were amazing we spent enough time but want to spend more time. I missed the helicopter tour because of the short time. Las Vegas tour was fantastic. Missing lovely time and my new friends. Highly recommended.
I have been on 5 tours with this company through the years and i must say that our tour guide was the best ever and they have all been good. She was knowledgeable, organized, punctual, efficient and friendly. The itinerary was superb and we had The perfect amount of time. Will recommend this tour.
I had been with my family and the places covered in this tour were worthy points. I could not make good use of this tour as I had my child who did not let me see the Horseshoe Bend angle view and also the shows of Las Vegas. The tour operator helped us to their best, but my son is not even one year old and so had a tough time handling. I will surely come for this tour next year and enjoy with my son. So, please don't travel with toddlers :D
First, we then reached Treasure Island Resort, Main Entrance where our bus tour was going to began. We were dressed according to the area with jackets. It took us about one and a half hour to reach the first stop. We had an amazing panoramic view of the valley from the Horseshoe Bend. We also enjoyed the tour to Lower Antelope Canyon. We then drove Las Vegas to finish the tours. Mentioning the weather, it felt somewhat cooler. For lunch, we reached nearby town for a restaurant. The weather was mild and we could see cactus plants all over this deserted area. The guide told us many stories about the region. It is a wonderful place to walk through. We stopped to view a large-scale equestrian dance performance in Las Vegas that’s why spent another night there, also we felt really exhausted. However, it was a marvelous day with all the blend of music and a terrific view. We returned back to the Hotel which we found best for a family vacation.
1 day tour can be so impressive, fun and thrilling, I never knew. The tour operator covered the most important places and we friends enjoyed every bit. We took lots of photographs and will soon post it on the Facebook. This is sure to bring more of our friends to this tour. Taking one day off is possible and visiting these lovely places is luring. I was happy with the arrangements of the tour operator and happily give 5 stars, so that it helps others.

I took this trip on 5th of September 2018. I very appreciated and glad to have our tour guide as a guide of my trip. She's taken care of my family nicely, indeed. Moreover, she helped us a lot. I really want to say thank you to her. She is knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend my friend to choose this trip. This one day was wonderful!
That tour was one of the greatest things i have ever seen! it was my first time to go to the Antelope canyon, and it was great! really beautiful and amazing place. Also the Glen Canyon and Lake Powell was something you really can't forget. i would really love to join that tour or anything similar again
The best decision this year was our plan of the tour to Lower Antelope Canyon which is known for its scenic beauty and unique structure. We left early by car as the tourist bus had to pick us up at 8:00 Am from Las Vegas. We reached well before time and waited for the bus. We started our journey towards the forested peaks. The entire tour was explained by a tourist guide. The most fascinating news was that it was Maple season and the area is converted into a piece of art with its iconic haze. We first took a driving tour on reaching and enjoyed the wildlife. There hiking trail and walking paths at the Antelope Canyon.
The good thing is that we had some breakfast/lunch after arriving at the location and left for the Horseshoe after visiting the Lower Canyons in Arizona. Both the sites are famous for being famous spots in the state. We took some pictures there, had some fun and after spending an hour, we went to see the beauty of the region. It was a scary experience as we went underground and it grew darker at the Lower Canyons. It buried deep down the surface but it was all worth the scariness because as soon as we saw the narrow pathways everything felt alive. The landmark was beautiful and it was no doubt that nature is the art of God. We were taken back up to the surface by a train. It took a few minutes to reach the surface. During this tour, we took pictures of the beautiful terrain. Thumbs up for this great bus tour.
To get out of my daily work routine and to get a change in my environment, I thought it was best to go for this 1-day tour. Reached Las Vegas airport by 9 AM where the tour guide was waiting with other people who opted for the tour. Our transport was a private shuttle service which was a really comfortable and excellent experience. According to the name, it was very comfortable. The buses were luxury and it was enough to clear off tension and relax for a whole day. I myself, as well as the others, were provided with a 24-hour private shuttle service to roam around the whole day by the company but we rather chose to spend the time on this bus tour. It was a great bus tour, quite lovely to be part of the tour team!
We made a plan of the tour the only we had in the US on this bus tour. We had no idea about the tour. We started our journey with a group of close friends and families by car. We reached McDonald's at 7:30 as the tourist bus had to pick us from there at 8:00 AM from Rear Rotunda. We could see a grand tourist bus approaching. We were greeted by a tourist guide. We paid the charges and started with our journey towards the Lower Antelope Canyon. The tour guide mentioned the region’s history and the beauty of this region is at its peak. We reached there and started on the walking paths to enjoy smell the history of million years old rock structures, and beautiful colors of rocks. There was a different sort of attractions to see which we had never experienced before. There were lots of hiking trails for the interested tourists.
That day we left for Lower Antelope Canyon from Las Vegas. We took the jeeps & took a long walk to reach the wonder. We had lunch there and started heading towards Horseshoe Bend. The tour guide explained the background of the region and history which took place here. There were many hiking trails. Then our next visit to Horseshoe Bend which we were told was a must-see attraction. The way to the cave and view was spectacular but requires good comfortable shoes. The tourist guide gave us all the information about the caves and made sure we were enjoying our visit. All the stops were breathtakingly beautiful and it is entirely difficult to describe the gorgeous view in words. We came back that day to conclude the tour.
I would rate this incredible tour well since this tour was one of the best and definitely to be visited again. This time I decided to visit Arizona during vacations. The reason was that it was in my affordable range and for a perfect view of nature. We started the journey by car and parked at the Las Vegas strip. The tourist bus arrived at 8:00 Am and began the 1-day tour. We were greeted by a tourist guide and our journey started towards the Lower Antelope Canyon which is known for nothing but beautiful nature all around. There were lots of hiking trails from easy to difficult and lots of wildlife.
That day was a real great day, actually the tour guide also was really nice and he also spoke Chinese, which was a real bonus! And i really felt comfortable with person talking in Chinese as well because it is my native language. i enjoyed every detail on that tour , like Antelope canyon, Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam, the bus was comfortable and the tour was well organized, i took a lot of amazing photos on that day.
After reaching Arizona, we checked in the Ramada hotel and got some sleep after a whole day of traveling. We had to reach Las Vegas the next day to start on this exciting 1-day bus tour. At about 12 PM we left for the Vegas, although it was quite a fatigue to reach Las Vegas by road. Our first stop was the Antelope Canyon, one of the famous spots in Arizona. We got a brief guided tour by the tour guide and really enjoyed the place. We also visited the Horseshoe Bend which was really an interesting place to visit thinking about the fact that the beauty of the crystal green Colorado River. We also got a brief tour by the tour guide of that place. We traveled to the Vegas as the tour finishes. After spending a whole day observing various points of interests, we were dropped at the Las Vegas International Airport.
Despite the great enjoyment we had at the famous locations such as the Lower Antelope Canyon, we thoroughly received a good service from the bus tour host; he guided us all about this tour. The best thing I liked about this tour was its punctuality reached and visited right on time, and they dropped us right on time as the tour finished later that day. I think It was a great bus tour and perfect for anyone who is looking for a great time. Although the walking shoes are highly recommended since the area s quite rough that requires a pair of hiking or walking shoes to fully enjoy the tour. Thanks for this great bus tour; we will definitely board the next tour in the next month, hopefully with my parents. Great service.
We were happy with this booking experience. The weather was perfect to visit the glory of beautiful and informative destinations. I am really thankful to guide who was following a tight schedule with flexible behavior. The tour guide was informative and so supportive that he helped in finding good vegan options. I was really impressed by his keen local information. I brought many good memories along with this trip. Every single memory of amazing destinations is saved in my camera, especially the canyon lights and Lake Powell. I also shared with friends who admired beautiful places. Big thanks and lots of love for all perfect dealing! Highly recommended for nature lovers.
Lunch and access to canyon group is very confusing too. poor tour guide, he has to drive a part of trip because it is a long trip from Las Vegas. Maybe the office should prepare color sticky label for organization. Overall, it is fun trip, I like Antelope canyon better than Grand Canyon.
Regardless of the fact that tour guide's English was bad, the tour was really nice. I have been USA before, but this was my first time to see Antelope Canyon, i really had no idea it was this beautiful. Overall i enjoyed the tour especially the Canyon and Lake Powell. Believe me it is an amazing place to vsiit and i will recommend it to everyone
The tour guide took us all out early in the morning. The traveling was extraordinarily comfortable and relaxing on the buses. We took a trip towards the Lower Antelope Canyon, one of the famous spots for tourists. The magnificent far-ranging view was breathtaking. Took a fair amount of pictures and after spending a few hours venturing through there and hearing facts about the place from the tour guide, we took off from there. Our next stop was Horseshoe Bend area. The observatory was beautiful as well as the other places. It was not really my type of tour locations but the view really changed my overview. The tour service arranged us a lunch later the afternoon. We took a trip to the top of the stack of the Antelope rocks.
I love exploring places that are full of thrill but this time I thought of different trip with an idea of exploring the beauties of a city. I must say that Jack made the experience more wonderful. He told me many new things and made exploring very interesting. I have been to these places many times but this time I found some in depth information and was really impressed by las vegas shows as well. Travel was comfortable with trained team. I can definitely this trip to all ages because its not only about places but also about fun and activities over there. Big thanks!
The tour was great, we enjoyed throughout the journey at Antelope Canyon. We also reached the top of Horseshoe Bend in an hour. From there we could find a wider view of the Colorado river bend with a clear reflection of the sun. It was such a magnificent view which we had never seen before. Our final stop was Las Vegas on the same day. Antelope area has lots of wild plantation; we drove around lake Powell road and natural bridge, after doing some shopping. The road is surrounded by vegetation and beautiful trees. We could not see bears as the signs mentioned it. There hiking trails for the tourists which are well maintained. You can enjoy the drive because of natural beauty throughout the route. Our lunch was at the site. Horseshoe Bend Lower Antelope Canyon
I joinedthis tour with my boyfriend. This was my forst experience to travel through bus service. It was a lovely way to see places. I was not sure to visit all places as time was short but the driver and guide managed very well. We covered many places including Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Team was nice and very friendly. I will definatly recommend thid tour to all.
Hi. We are Canadian and finally took this tour in the USA. My family and I went on a 1-day vacation tour using this tour service. The experience was absolutely wonderful. We took a flight from California to Las Vegas. The pickup point was perfect for us because we reached the airport at the time and the tour guide was waiting right there with the luggage. We as well as other people got on the bus to start the journey. The buses were good, and we traveled in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Later that day, we booked ourselves a luxury suite and rested for a few hours. After resting, we roamed around the city and had fun the first day using the Private Shuttle service provided by the tour service. The first day was absolutely great. At night, we returned to the hotel and slept in order to get up early to return to our hometown.
What a great day that day was! first thing that really helped is that the tour guide was speaking really great Chinese, and that was really good as it was our first time to see these amazing places and we really needed some explanation. The Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell were just magnificent, and i really intend to join that tour again soon with my friends
1-Day Las Vegas to Horseshoe Bend and Lower Antelope Canyon Tour Was the happy trip. Tour guide is so kind and has the well manage. In the time schedule, there was pretty much covered all valuable experience. Recommended :)
My tour guide was a man of golden heart, he treated everyone with a smile on his face, he even handled many people of different cultures, interests and taste in a remarkable was as he was helping them to find their food preferences from vegans to non vegans. This trip was a mix and match of cultural sharing and fun with lovely destinations like the Rainbow Bridge and dam projects. Loved all the services and places!
We chose to ride on the off-road vehicles to reach the Antelope Canyon and it gives such a dreamy view of the whole of the desert area with cactus plants all around. After that, we reached Horseshoe Bend. The tourist guide explained about the Horseshoe Bend. That was quite relaxing. It was a wonderful day listening to music and witnessing the beautiful views. We returned back to Las Vegas to spend the night there and return to our hometown later the next morning. It provided all the comforts for a family vacation and I would recommend it for a family vacation.
As the trip was really memorable and driving was a bit speedy some times. I am not comfortable with speedy driving but thank Alex who drove slowly on my request. As he said that he never wanted to delay because he was already bit late due to the traffic jam at one stop. Finally, I was okay with his smooth driving after that request. People in the bus were also co operative. I also enjoyed amazing destinations like Lake Powell and enjoyed visiting energy projects. Music in the bus and seats were good to enjoy as well. Cool destinations with very fine arrangements. WOW!!
It was my best trip with a best price. The tour was well organised and the tour guide was very friendly . He followed the time schedule very well and covered all the tourist attractions he explained everything very clearly. We also got water bottle and a sandwich as lunch. So, I believe it is included in the price we pay while booking the tour. We really enjoyed the group mainly because it was a small group of 15 people, not so crowded and guide could give attention to everyone.
We had some breakfast and left for the day’s tour with the other people and the tour guide. We took a big shuttle this time to travel to the Lower Antelope Canyo. The hiking was fun. After spending some time hiking at the site, and exploring the depths of the canyon, we didn’t do much so it wasn’t that tiring, we visited the Park where our also children also enjoyed. It was surely a fun and appealing place for all the ages. The tour guide escorted us to the buses on the first day. Natural Bridge, Lake Powel Horseshoe Bend, Rainbow Bridge, these all interest points were chosen wisely and were fun for all ages because all of the places had their own interest. The tour guide took the liberty of guiding us these places. We had lunch at a nearby town, and we got a good amount of sleep for the next day.
The entire bus tour was absolutely magnificent and adventurous. After that pickup, we came to Lower Canyons, the weather was mild and we could see the beauty of this world's wonder. The guide told us many stories about the landmark. We stopped to view a large-scale equestrian dance performance, but they looked quite appealing from the outside since it wasn’t included in the tour. It was a marvelous day with all the blend of music and beautiful sightseeing. We returned back to the Hotel Best Westerner so we could take a flight the next morning. The day was quite exhausting.
The start of the journey was so great and we really wished that we could spend some time around the Las Vegas strip since we were already there. We visited the Lower Antelope Canyon firstly, and then Horseshoe Bend. The site had a crowd of tourists visiting. The tourist guide told us the history of these places. I would rate this incredible tour 4 out of 5 and this tour was one of the best and definitely to be visited again. I would actually rate it 5 out of 5 but not everything is perfect. The tour guide played an important role during this trip. He told us informative facts about the places we visited which really helped the increase in our knowledge. Some tour guides are rather annoying and telling us basic things we already know about places but the tour guide provided by this tour service was excellent. He was professional with everything, unformed and everything was planned. I will recommend this tour service to anyone who wants to get their piece of mind together.
Recommended. Well managed and planned tour. Big and little all spots were explored without missing any single place of the itinerary. This experience of exploration of fantastic places was really very nice. Inside the bus environment was really fine but the kids were making too much of the noise. I switched to my headphones and felt quite relaxed. Destinations were lovely and time management of a bus driver was perfect. Want to come again but next time I will join a long tour to explore more.
After getting some sleep and getting up early, we got ready and checked out of our hotels to reach Las Vegas to start the bus tour. We were already mentally and physically prepared for this adventurous journey. We traveled to Lower Canyons; the scenario of the Riverside from the Horseshoe area was absolutely amazing. One thing I loved about the tour bus is that it’s extremely comfortable and relaxing. One doesn’t feel tired after traveling from one city to another. We had lunch in one of the famous locations in the afternoon. After lunch, we went to the Horseshoe Bend area which was one of the famous attractions in the region. Spent about 3 hours there, took some pictures and then led by the tour guide, we went 1120 feet underground to see the Antelope Canyon. The beauty of nature was extraordinary. Thanks a lot for this great bus tour.

That tour was overall nice, but there was a couple of things that i did not like, first thing is that the tour guide mostly spoke Chinese as most of people were Chinese on that day, and his English was not good at all! which made us feel neglected . Also the bus did not have WiFi. I think this is very basic thing. Other than that it was a nice day and great places
It is very beautiful canyon. under the sun light, can you take a very nice picture. GoldenBusTours- It's good but need more organize. The company offers few different pick up and drop area but i suggest you pick Stratosphere. I stay in Aria so i picked Excalibur hotel because it is Mlife and free parking for me. However when we were back, I was told, need to wait an hour and half to another bus to drop me off. lol. end up to take Uber.
It looked as if I had entered heaven when we finally entered the Lower Antelope Canyon, it’s also the must-see location of the entire region. We were accompanied by the tour guide to the surface through high powered jeeps. Besides the fact that we were few underground, one could still enjoy the fresh air as well as the scenery. Our next stop was the Horseshoe Bend, it was really not my type but the antelope canyon was one of the famous beauties around Arizona. After this, we were led back to airports through the shuttle service. The tour guide played an important role during this trip because he told us facts about the various locations we visited. Not like those facts were boring, but they were interesting.
It was a very well organized the tour and we got information about the journey from the tour guide. Then we had to go to Lower Antelope site. We visited the walkways and caves there. Then we visited Horseshoe Bend, fortunately, we also see the Rainbow Bridge, Lake Powel and so much more, and had photo sessions. The tourist guide kept on explaining the significance of these places. I would rate this incredible tour 4 and this tour was one of the best.
Unfortunately, Golden Bus Tours uses the company "West Coast Holidays" to provide the service you pay for here. This company (West Coast Holidays) is awful. Truely. I think that Golden Bus Tours ought to discontinue any contracts with them. West Coast tours is known by Antelope Canyon operators as a 'black-listed' company. This is due to them always being late for bookings and missing their strict time slots for entering the canyon. We only found this out upon arrival, when we were made late. Firstly, we were picked up late from our Las Vegas hotels by a company coach, that then took us to a car park and left us to find a different coach that was ours for the day drive/tour to Antelope Canyon. Then we were told that the 'lunch available' stated was in fact an opt-in for a packed lunch given to us before we left the car park. If we didn't take it, there would be no lunch. I would recommend everyone doing this tour brings their own lunch. $10 for a soggy sandwich, crisps, and water is not acceptable. We were expecting the option to buy our own lunch, but it was not given. On the plus side, the coach was nice, except for the priority of Chinese narration en route and less English narration given. Then on the way to the Antelope Canyon we had a ridiculously long stop at a petrol station for toilets. We were left standing in this petrol station for around 15mins before the coach let us all back on to carry on. At this point also, we were asked to pay tips to the driver and guide ($10 each!). As you read on you will discover why this was absurd. When we arrived at Antelope Canyon there was an error with our tickets. We were not told what was going on at this point, our guide just vanished into the office and didnt come back out. After we saw some commotion, and we translated the commotion from other passenger from Chinese into English (thanks to one amazing lady), we worked out that the bus company had arrived 1min after we were supposed to be entering the canyon as a large group. The coach company had not left any time for ticket collection upon arrival, toilet usage or organisation of us into groups prior to the tour. The guide suggested it was ridiculous that we were not allowed in after being only 1 min late, but we were not 1 min late. We should have arrived 45 mins beforehand to get our tickets sorted as is requested by the venue. I couldn't believe how rude the guide was to expect that they could show up on the dot and be given the tour - as if we would have priority over other visitors. The guide decided the only thing he could do was ring the main office for the company. He did not gather our group to tell us what was fully going on. We only know the full story due to one amazing lady who kept track of it all. While our guide stood around for nearly an hour just on the phone, achieving nothing, the amazing lady spoke to the manager of the venue and negotiated with them to allow us to have our Antelope Canyon tours but in smaller groups to fit in with other visitors to the canyon. They agreed (eventually) that it was not our fault we were made late, and that in the afternoon we could split up into small groups and join onto other groups to have our tours. It then took *us*, the paying customers to tell the *guide* that this is what was happening and we demand that he fit in the promised Horseshoe Bend trip as well as taking us back in time for this tour. Unfortunately, because of the timings we had little time at the bend and had to run there and back (it's a fair distance from the car park to the bend itself) so not everyone saw the spectacle, but we got what we paid for. The guide had the gall to try to make excuses for why the *venue* was in the wrong, and not them, but as passengers we ignored him and had taken over organisation of our trip by ourselves. I've cut out some of the other messy details and issues we had but that is the main thing. West Coast Holidays is awful as a company. Venues know this and dislike them. I would not book with Golden Bus Tours ever again, unless I knew they no longer associated with this company. Apologies Golden Bus Tours for the review going on your site, but people need to know about West Coast Tours. Avoid them at all costs. Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend though - absolutely beautiful and a must see.

So i am really confused! i don't know if i should be happy about the amazing places we have been to on that day, or if i should be angry about the bad things we have been through on that day. The tour guide almost did not speak English at all! mostly Chinese! i don't get that, why would you say that he speaks both languages if you already know that most people are Chinese, and therefore he would be speaking mostly Chinese. you really need to be more accurate than this.
After starting the tour from Las Vegas, we then reached Antelope Canyon just outside the Las Vegas. It was about one and a half hour to reach the site. It was good enough to give an amazing view of the desert region which we had never seen before. We then moved to Horseshoe Bend. The most awaited part was the shopping area and a wide variety of wild plantation. We then returned to Vegas to return to our hometown. The memory of its beauty still mesmerizes me. There are so many hiking tracks. However, at lunchtime, we reached the nearby restaurant. The specialty of this town is a variety of natural attractions and not just the food, so the lunch wasn’t great.
Fantastic tour. This tour is perfect for people who has short time and want to explore much more. We visited many places and amazed my the magic and wonder of nature. All points were outclass and worth to visit. The best was Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe bend. The tour guide was explaning everything and providing us best services. Memorable and informative day. I will highly recommend this tour.
