This was me and my husband's first time going to the Grand Canyon. The tour was wonderful, in spite of the cold weather, we had a great time experiencing this together. The tour guide was awesome. I was really impressed with her knowledge and history and how she spoke several languages so well. The bus ride was nice and comfortable and the lunch was extremely fresh. Overall it was a wonderful experience. My husband and I have already said we plan to go back to the Grand Canyon.

Excellent half day tour! Debbie from Pink Adventure Tours was awesome and knowledgeable from start to finish. We had a great experience and learnt so much about the history and operations of the Hoover Dam… 10/10 :-)

The tour was good and the driver was very informative. Just wished it was a bit warmer. Also description of tour did not state that there were so many steps to climb. Even the ramp up was quite long to reach the top.
