What an amazing experience of this Skywalk. I am an adventure lover that's why I felt like walking on air literally. It was the most memorable experience of my trip. The bus tour was good enough for their services. I simply loved this tour experience trip and yes! BBQ at the canyon rim was too delicious. Highly recommended.
the Wonderful tour that was planned Perfectly. I joined this tour with my boyfriend. We had a wonderful time at the Grand Canyon. We make short stops and fully enjoy its beauty and charm. The guide was very helpful, he guides us in a great way. We acted upon on his advice and spent the wonderful time in Las Vegas. Don’t forget to buy chocolates for loved ones. Highly recommended.
A very pleasant and memorable tour. Las Vegas is full of activities, it was really lovely to walk around and enjoy sightseeing, food, and shopping. The Canyon was so beautiful and we enjoy the lunch that is included. I am so happy with the arrangements and services. The bus was very comfortable and clean. The guide was a nice man, he shared his knowledge about the places. Thanks for this lovely tour.
I found this trip quite interesting. All the places were amazing. I choose Grand Canyon south rim and I love the place. Las Vegas is a wonderful city, in one day you can’t explore the real fun and beauty of this city. Ethel M chocolate gift shop and a tour of the chocolate factory was really informative and full of fun. Bus tour of Botanical Cactus Gardens was also refreshing. I found this tour bit less for me because I wished to explore more places otherwise services were satisfactory to me. Thanks!
Everything was great right from I booked this tour. The booking procedure was very simple and I got a quick response from the management. The bus was a little bit late, the driver was great and well trained. We spent enough time at each stop. The tour guide was friendly and very helpful. He has knowledge of places. Love the whole tour. I will join some other tour next time.
