This tour was certainly good. I had planned earlier also to be on this tour, but unfortunately good not make to this tour. In fact, both times I cancelled and lost the money. This time after this tour I feel like the amount is covered. These three days were amazing; especially I did not moving from Grand Canyon. Later after going to the West Rim and Skywalk, I was frozen, the views were stunning and I did not want to move, but had no other way, but to get back to the tour bus. Everything was beautiful, I give five stars.
: I found this tour perfect in all the manners. It was thrilling and I did not have any problem throughout the tour. It was alright for me to enjoy the driver and the tour guide. They supported all the passengers with assistance and information. Not a bit of trouble and the places we visited were well though plan. It was nice, scenic and beautiful. The skywalk was amazing and the views from there were scenic. I did not miss anything; I loved the stay in the hotel, the room, the service, the tour, the lunch, the guide and the driver. I give 5 stars.
I have never seen the Las Vegas New Year Fireworks live but only on the televisions. This year, we took the bus tour to Las Vegas where we had a lot of fun at the Las Vegas Countdown Area, there was just so much to do and see in the Vegas city. Also, to mention the Grand Canyon tour which was also the best destination on our bus journey. The skywalk there was the best. Thanks for this great bus tour! We loved it.
Time and again, I have heard from many people about this place about Las Vegas, the strip, the night entertainment, Grand Canyon and was hoping to visit. Now I am on this tour. I went 2 days back only, and wish to pen my thoughts before it fades away or I forget something really important that may be useful to others. The website is good and charged that was announced or mentioned, but I am giving 4 stars as I felt they must give us more time in Skywalk and west rim, but they did not do that. Better luck next time!
A nice comfortable ride in a bus and I was experiencing the bus ride after a very long number of years. This was completely a new experience than the school bus ride. The seats were plushy and so it was like you just feel sleepy. The bus had all the comforts and the guide and driver were good, honest and pleasing. The hotel accommodation was good and the staff in the hotel was not very attentive. They did their jobs, but when asked, they did not respond with a yes or no. It would have been really nice if one acts as required.
I have never been so fond of taking the journeys on the buses with people, but this time had to experience what so special about them with my fiancé. Choosing and booking the tours online was quite facilitating. Our journey began from Los Angeles and then we visited the Grand Canyon, especially the Hualapai Ranch where we had the dinner and stayed overnight, was truly remarkable. The buses and hotels were just as good as I expected. Cheers to the great team!
The places we visited were excellent and the tour was running as per schedule. I am giving three stars as they did not wait for me and I had to take a taxi chasing them to over 30 minutes and boarded the bus. I overslept and did not reach the stop on time, but after 10 minutes I called them to say I am ready, but they said they already moved away from the stop, this was truly annoying. Even I had booked tickets, they can wait for some time and I felt they did not give their clients the desired respect.
