this trip was perfect for the people who just visit the Grand Canyon for the first time in their lives; especially for those foreign people. That place’s just not so much entertaining as if we spend a lot of time there since it’s the same weird rock shapes covering a wide region. The best thing was the ride on the plane at the canyons. The tour was good as we really enjoyed on our first day the Excalibur Hotel which was pretty much well-appointed and fascinates the visitors into its stunning vibe. The tour management was quite cooperative with everybody on board plus we received a lot a guidance which sure made our journey so perfect. Lovely days!

it was great being part of the bus tour, but I would definitely prefer the tour offering camping on the mountains rather than the hotels and city life. My wife and I decided to spend our day at the Grand Canyon west rim where the skywalk is built, lovely views from there. Antelope Canyon was also marvelous but its nothing compared to the Grand Canyon. The tour was fine overall.

I don’t mind traveling long-distanced on the buses. However, on this bus tour, we had a friendly bus guide person which provided us with great information and helped us all out throughout the course of the bus tour. Starting the tour from Bay Area was reliable for us, mentioning the great destinations where had the best time. Hopefully, our hotels were decent. Good experience!

I waited for quite a while to just board on this four days trip. As I got my flight/visa ready from Turkey I started to wonder what if don’t enjoy or have fun because I couldn’t ruin my kids’ vacation which turned to be a lame thought as we finally experienced the tour deal. Well, it did challenge our thought that how formation processes of Grand Canyon took places, it resides a humongous region covering the rock formations, vistas, trails, spire-shaped sand rock erosion, and many other. Ah! How can I forget the Skywalk it did look pretty dangerous as it has the glass floors making us feel like stepping on the air. Anyways, the hotel at Vegas was really stunning and the journey through the Mojave Desert. We had a good time, much appreciable.
