Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Canyon, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

Great Tour
Jill_P, Sept 2023
Great time with good friends! Beautiful scenery, yummy food, and an entertaining host. Joe kept us entertained and informed. Was so glad he was our tour guide again as we had him a couple years ago and loved him then. He even sang Happy Bday, Joe style, to my hubby.
Well organised with...
roy_s, Sept 2023
Well organised with practical suggestions on managing time and queues at the Canyon. Perhaps Ralph's personal opinions, conspiracy theories and comment he didn't like Aussies on his bus was a bit over the top.
Great tour to the West Rim
Stephanie_C, Sept 2023
I debated which rim to visit and I was so glad we chose this tour going to the West Rim. Our tour guide, Parker, was funny, informative and a great guide! We spent just enough time at both stops at the Grand Canyon. I am also super glad we paid the extra money for the Sky Bridge. You got to see the depth of the canyon from Eagle Point this way. Afterwards we stopped at the Hoover Dam bridge. I do wish we would have a little more time there though. It took almost the entire time given to just walk up there and back. There was no time to enjoy the view or read any of the signs. I think the food was okay on the trip but I could have done without it and made the overall trip a little cheaper personally. Overall a win! I definitely recommend!
Worth Every Penny
Timothy_K, Sept 2023
The tour was worth every penny. The guide and driver (Johnny and Patrick) did a great job. Johnny provided entertainment for what could have been a boring drive and Patrick is a masterful driver. I was unaware that this was a "Comedy" tour. I was expecting a general educational tour. All was good. Johnny is a standup comic working to perfect his craft. I'm game to help as that is one of the toughest gigs on earth. There are a few things that I wish I had known. Nothing that should deter you from taking the trip, though. Definitely do it! The 2nd stop at the GC, Eagle Point, is mostly spent waiting in two lines. The first one is the line to the Skywalk. That line was around a full hour. Plus, once you get onto the Skywalk you're rushed by photographers to get 8 specific shots. During that time you have very little time to enjoy the splendid views. Personal photography is not allowed on the Skywalk. One might consider skipping the Skywalk or refusing the photos and simply taking 3-5 minutes to enjoy the view. The photos were meh and they were pricey. Lunch is also at this location. Service at the outside food trailer is slow. We waited in line another 35-40 minutes to get lunch as well. Something to consider. Guano Point was fabulous (the final stop at the GC). Wear comfortable shoes with solid traction. If you're able to climb both rocky spots do it. Take your time and have some fun. Overall this was a great trip and provided genuine value. The two meals provided were solid quality, had plenty of complimentary water, abundant opportunities to use clear restrooms and no personal driving or parking headaches. If you're on the fence, do yourself a solid and take the tour.
Worth it!
MaFlodette_S, Sept 2023
This was our first time to see the grand canyon west rim side and it was worth it! Meals were included but it was so so, your typical american brekky and lunch. Time was managed well, all other tour companions were prompt in returning to our bus. Parker was our guide and he added much needed laughter to our trip. Kudos to him and our driver, Mel. Would recommend this tour for sure!
Great tour!!!
Josef_L, Sept 2023
We were blown away with this tour. Both breakfast and lunch were included and were delicious! My wife is vegan and still ended up full with the options available! The tour guide was great. It is a long day but worth every penny. Highly recommend!!!
Paula_M, Sept 2023
The Grand Canyon was the most memorable. The tour guide was knowledgeable, articulate and funny. It was very entertaining having Ian as our guide
Amazing grand cannon
Kim_C, Sept 2023
Tony and Bernie looked after us really well they were full of information on on grand cannon and hoover dam and talked us through the sights along journey, had some laughs along the way and would totally recommend to anyone going to book with them
Qiana_L, Sept 2023
Our tour guy Pat was the best!!! He was funny, very informative and professional. He made everyone feel like family while on his bus. I enjoyed the entire experience. My favorite part was the skywalk!!!
A great break from the casinos!!
Michael_O, Sept 2023
One of the best parts of our trip! Robbie was great and gave us a large amount of information on where to eat and where to visit while in Vegas!! The canyon and Hoover Dam was amazing!!
Fun, informative, and unforgettable experience!
Tammi_D, Sept 2023
We had an incredible and unforgettable experience! Our host was very informative about Las Vegas and our surroundings going to the Grand Canyon. We got great tips for things to do while we are here and even what not to do that isn’t worth our money. He knew a lot of great facts and was very engaging! We will recommend this tour to friends for sure.
Best time with Joe and Bernest at Grand Canyon
RicardoF_P, Sept 2023
I love the tour guide Joe and bus driver Bernest. Enjoyed the jokes and history. I felt very safe knowing what to do with the creatures I may or may not run into. I usually don't like driving with other people but I was comfortable and safe.
A Dam of emotion
Mark_C, Sept 2023
A very enjoyable tour. Nice drive, nice view. My only gripe was that I thought when booking that the tour would involve being able to walk across the Hoover Dam itself. Still, in all it was a very informative day. Both tour guide and driver were excellent though I did not like the fact that they suggested an amount of a gratuity for each person at several points during the day. A gratuity amount is determined by the quality of service provided and should not be influenced by those hosting to receive a set amount. However, the gratuity was well deserved. Thank you.
Johnny and ACHI

Great value and great adventure. The crew was very accommodating and professional. They do a great job to keep you entertained.
Amazing Grand Canyon experience!
Casey_G, Sept 2023
We had an amazing experience. Our tour was with Comedy on Deck and Ralph was our tour guide. He was hilarious and so helpful. He kept us very well informed to keep us safe and to have the best experience possible. We had plenty of time to see each stop on our trip.
Ask for Ralph!
Tampia_A, Sept 2023
Ralph, the tour guide, did an exceptional job in explaining the various sights and being timely to prevent long wait times at sights. Ask for Ralph at Comedy On Deck!
You should book this tour
Vaida_R, Sept 2023
Enjoyed every minute of this tour. Everything was perfect.Grand Canyon was breathtaking and our guide, Tylor, was fenomenale. Would recommend this trip to everyone.
Breath taking experience that will always be remembered
AnnMarie_S, Sept 2023
The whole trip was organised to absolute perfection. Due to Patrick’s experience and knowledge, the day ran smoothly, with no delays (first in line for sky walk 😊). Patrick kept us laughing and entertained for the whole trip and shared his extensive knowledge of not only GC and HD but also Arizona, Nevada and Las Vegas. Along with our fantastic drive Jose we couldn’t have asked for a better team.
Diane_A, Sept 2023
Everything was amazing. More fun than expected & Patrick was so funny. He made the travel time most enjoyable xx
