  • I chose this tour because it offered 3 hours to explore the canyon on your own. We got 2 hours total, 40 minutes at Mather Point and 1 hour 20 minutes at Bright Angel Lodge. There was really no information at the drop off points, so we wandered around trying to see what was available. We accidentally found a trail down into the canyon, with 30 minutes left before returning to the bus. Trail information would have been helpful. We arrived at the Grand Canyon so late in the day 3pm that it was starting to get dark by 5pm, and our photos are filled with shadows. There was wasted time during the day, and getting to the park earlier would have been better. We were picked up at our hotel at 6:15am, then taken to the Gray Line station. Off that bus, into the building to hear about optional upgrades which was to make more money, then on another bus and left at 7:30am. The quick stop at Hoover Dam was a great photo opportunity. Then we stopped in Kingman, AZ at McDonalds. There was no reason for that stopit was wasted time. On to the Visitor Center, where we were herded into a food line. All food options listed weren't available, and there were no seats. We had to wait for a couple who did the helicoptor ride before we could leave. The views were great at the Canyon, but getting there an hour or 2 earlier would have been fantastic. On the way back to Las Vegas, we stopped in Kingman, AZ again. This time was for fuel, and the tiny gas station had a Subway where we could buy food. It was not big enough for the number of people on our bus. We returned to Las Vegas and went to the Gray Line station again, where we had to get off and onto another small bus for transport back to our hotel. I did like our bus driver, Ziggy. He was funny and shared some good information. The automated recording on the bus was also interesting, but cut off at odd times in the middle of the story. I'm glad we got to see the Grand Canyon, but I would not recommend this trip as a way to do it. There was too much time wasted, and not the 3 hours promised at the canyon.

  • Absolutely spectacular sight. Although be warned very long day. 6.15 am pick up and return at 9pm. Also it is very cold at the canyon. You are not pre warned of this dress appropriately. Time wasted by grayline and then rushed to eat and use the toilet by the guide form the remainder of the trip

  • I booked just the bus tour but I was able to upgrade it and include the jeep tour very easily on the day. The tour was excellent and I was glad I upgraded to the Jeep tour as the guide took us to some great secluded spots where we were able to get some great pictures and view the sunset which was a fantastic experience. I gave this tour 5 stars and that is because I did not feel it was fair to mark it down due to travel time. However before booking you should consider that this is a very long day. I had to get up before 6am and it was after 10.30pm when I was dropped off at the hotel. I knew it would be a long day before I booked but I elected for the south rim because its the deepest part of the canyon and considered to be more spectacular. If the travel time is not a problem for you then you should definitely choose the south rim, however, if it is an issue then there are plenty of shorter west rim tours available.

  • Interesting tour, but tour company failure to pick up at hotel. Had to make arrangements to getto tour launch point.

  • It was a great experience!

  • Amazingly enjoyable tour, though a very long day. Returned to hotel after 10PM. Am glad we took the time, since I've only viewed Grand Canyon from airplane. My Tablet Front Screen is a photo of the Canyon captured in a photo, reminding me of the power and magnificence of our Creator's hand.

  • You will wish you had more time at the Canyon! This is a long day but worth every penny! guides are great very knowledgeable. Plan for this to be the only thing you do on this day. Pick-up was 6am returned about 9:30pm.

  • Great trip and nicely organized.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • this was a very long trip. We fell for the upgrade for an additional 100. it's all a scheme to milk more money out of you, but the small passenger van was better than large tour bus so we did it. The drive is quite long and since having been to the West Rim after this and on the skywalk. I'd skip this portion of the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed it indeed, but you don't get to spend much time there before you must return for the long ride back. The film they show could be eliminated as it's outdated and boring. i'd recommend driving to the west rim from Vegas, only 2 hours. The south rim is OK if you wanna do the whole tour guide thing, but it could be better.
