The perfect view of the grand canyon from Mather point ,Kolb and Rim trail was Awesome .It was so peaceful with a special feeling within you to see such a beautiful creation of God. Nature loves you and you feel so blessed to be in the heart of these great mountain ranges.
Not good experience on the trip
Shen_S, Sept 2023
1) The tour time was not same as the time as showed on tripadvisor. 2) The cicerone trade difference customers in different rules on tip, which he asked us must give him 20USD/people (10for driver,10for himself). But we saw other customers only gave him 5USD, a couple only gave him 20USD in total!
Definitely worth it
Jessica_C, Sept 2023
Paul was a wonderful tour guide! Yes, the drive to south rim from Vegas was long, but I slept nearly the entire time and didn't mind at all. The rim trail was beautiful. I definitely recommend this experience!
Amazing Grand Canyon South Rim

Maria_S, Sept 2023
This tour was amazing. We would highly recommend it. Fiona, our guide, was very smart and helpful. The long trip with the bus seemed not so long with her stories and interesting information and videos. And we had an excellent driver, Judy, from the company National Grand Canyon Park. Thank you, ladies, for the great time! And Grand Canyon and national park is absolutely worth seeing it. We wished we had just more time! During the way to the park we had a stop at Seligman where route 66 goes through and we able to take pictures. On our way back we saw the hover dam though both was not offered in the tour! Thank you very much!

Well worth the drive!
Caroline_H, Jul 2023
Well worth the long drive. With this tour didn't have to drive myself and get all tired out. The driver Judy was a careful, skilled driver. With this long drive it was great to have a bathroom in the bus. Renee provided information regarding the Canyon and other must dos in Vegas. The Grand Canyon was well worth the driving time. We gas ample time to see the Grand Canyon, which was just beautiful. I would take this tour again.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you, and yes, we do hope to see you again!
An Experience not to miss
Athena_P, Jul 2023
Tour guide Fiona was very informative and made the long ride fun, and driver Dawn was great: excellent driving. The south rim was absolutely incredible. If you can't walk 2.5 miles, you can take a free park shuttle to the pickup location. Lunch was good. The "Luxury" bus had smaller seats than expected. If you have 2 persons of size sitting next to each other, you will not be comfortable. On the return the bathroom didn't work. There's 2 rest stops each way, to get off the bus & use the restrooms.

Great bus tour with an amazing tour bus driver, Paul! Such a great driver- handled the bus like it was a sports car! Great sense of humor and very knowledgeable. Best way to get to the Grand Canyon- bus was comfortable and well air conditioned. Saw some good shows during the drive. The stops were fun and the Grand Canyon was so majestic!

This Grand Canyon tour was amazing! Jimmy Vegas and Judy were the best tour guides anyone could ask for. Jimmy’s rich history as a resident of Vegas and vast knowledge of the Canyon really made this trip. He was informative and fun! Judy is an amazing driver. The ride was smooth. I felt safe. This trip is well worth taking.

Everything was excellent Renee is a wonderful tour guide and Judith is a safe driver. Great team ! Lunch was great , if I had to criticize something would be the videos, I feel updated videos with better sound and quality could improve the long drive . The canyon what can I say … breathtaking just pictures do not do justice.

Worth the money
Richard_B, Jun 2023
Let me start with the positive. The trip is absolutely worth the time and money. No pictures will ever do justice to how incredibly beautifully this place is in person. The lunch was amazing and tour was very easy to book. The tour was much longer than we had anticipated but that was our fault for not realizing the drive time beforehand. Our biggest issue was the communication while we were on the tour wasn’t very good. We were dropped off in one location and were given very vague instructions on pick up location and time. Due to the confusion, we ended up making three laps around the park to find all of our tour members because everyone was unsure of the proper process. This made us very late leaving the park and therefore very late getting back into downtown Las Vegas. This became an issue because we were caught trying to get our personal vehicle and navigating off the strip during Saturday night heavy traffic. While we were very uncomfortable driving in the traffic, our coach driver handled it like a pro. Despite the few hiccups, we enjoyed the experience very much and would do it again. I would highly recommend verifying information regarding pick up process before departing for your sightseeing.

Long ride, but smooth and enjoyed it
Luis_J, May 2023
Grand Canyon lives up to it's name. Most of your day will be spent on bus getting there and back, but they give about 3 hours to hike a couple miles. It's about the right amount of time to take it in and get plenty pics. It's a long trip but if you can manage a bus ride all day, it's about as smooth as can be. Our driver Dawn was a pro and didn't miss a beat, and Jimmy Vegas is a great guide and host. You can tell he really enjoys his job and has the right energy you need for a ride like this. Couldnt have asked for a better duo, and was worth the money and time.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed the tour.
Awesome views of the Grand Canyon!
Mary_V, May 2023
Even though the bus ride is long it was worth it to see the Grand Canyon, Our guide Paul was very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience, The cost was very reasonable \

Thank you!
See the Grand Canyon & rural area. 🇺🇸
Stacey_S, May 2023
My bus operator was Paulie. He is a nice friendly guy who drove safely, told us great information of the area and stories about the area too. Very interesting. I wanted to see the rural area and Grand Canyon and found this hit the spot. Stops at little stores noted for the flavour of Americano. They provided a nice fresh lunch that was enjoyable. Expect to walk for a while a long the South Rim. Bring water. Beautiful view. Paved path. Plenty of benches & some shade. Then perhaps go buy a souvenir at the Bright Angel Lodge to commemorate walking the full route. 2.1 miles or approx 5km. Worth the trip.
