    The Canyon is amazing, but the trip could be better. Positive points: the conductor talks about the history every where that we pass through; we road in Route 66 historic site; we had amazing views point in Grand Canyon National Parc. Negatives points: we didn’t have water in the bus; lots of stops in souvenir magazines; and the PICKUP TIME ISN’T AT 7:30 (!!!!), it’s at 5:40 and nobody let us know before, so some people have lost the pickup at hotel (we went by Uber to the company headquarters).

    Recently went on this tour our guide Mr Green was amazing very informative and great company for the whole day as it was a long one over 16.5 hours the canyon was breathtaking and well worth the long day as I could have gone to the west rim which would have been a shorter day but googled which was the better and the south was by far the more impressive.I highly recommend to anyone wanting to go to the use Viator the only niggle I have was we past my hotel the Luxor when we got back to Vegas at 9 pm but we went down town to start the drop off of people and I was last to be dropped off over 1 and a quarter hours later hey ho you carnt have everything still a fab day out

    Very well organised tour. Good choice of taking a helicopter tour (highly recommended). On time departure and arrival. The crew onboard were awesome. I would strongly recommend this tour for Grand Canyon. Thank you very much.

    The Grand Canyon was absolutely breathtaking, a unique experience, well worth doing. The bus trip from Las Vegas though is exhausting. We had to be at a pick up point by 5.50am but didn't leave Vegas until 7.30am, annoying! Got back to our hotel at 11.30pm. We opted to do the hummer ride at the Canyon which was good.

    We opted for the upgrade to a smaller mini van but the long drive to the canyon was still difficult. Once there, our Gray Line driver Irene knew just where to take us for the most spectacular, breathtaking view of the South Rim.

    We booked this months ago and had been looking forward to the tour. It was well organized and Irene was beyond words. She was unbelievably knowledgeable regarding so many different landmarks and Vegas in general. She made us all feel like we were all friends taking this tour together. Oh, I should mention, my husband and I decided to upgrade from a bus with 56 people to a Mercedes sprinter with only 12 people. It was soooo worth the upgrade. We were taken to Hoover dam first and then we went to 3 different view points of the Grand Canyon. The views were breathtaking. Our lunch stop was great too. Our preordered food was hot and delicious. On our way back to Vegas, we spotted elks and Irene stopped so we could take pictures. She kept us very entertained with her sense of humor and all around wonderful personality.

    Tour was good but we felt we were rushed the whole day. Not enough time at the Grand Canyon. Staff were all excellent and our guide was great very informative.

  • 05-Aug-2019

    The Greyline tour operators were professional, but the bus ride is long and tiring. With family and small kids it’s tiring and boring. But the driver was very polite and driving was good. Lunch and dinner options for vegetarians are limited. So better pack it, food and drinks are allowed inside the coach. Coach has a restroom too.

    to short of time in canyon. we spent more time getting to the canyon. no explantation of what to expect once we reach the canyon. maybe the driver or guide could have given us a little more info about the canyon.
