    Such a great day trip! Lorena and Melissa were wonderful drivers who kept us entertained throughout the long drive. I wish I could have had a longer time period to spend at the Canyon but I have more incentive to return at a later date.

Such a great day trip! Lorena and Melissa were wonderful drivers who kept us entertained throughout the long drive. I wish I could have had a longer time period to spend at the Canyon but I have more incentive to return at a later date.

The tour was a bit long, but it was worth it and the guide was always very friendly and enthusiastic. They also gave us breakfast and lunch (both complete) and returned us to our hotel as indicated by the tour.

Long day of travel but worth it. Bus makes plenty of stops and you get to see Hoover Damn and RT 66. The 3 hours at the Canyon is plenty of time to see what you want and also take a hike around part of the rim.

Something everyone should do once.

Great tour. Wally was our bus driver and guide. It does make for a long day but I don’t regret it one bit.

Or tour guide was great! It was along day but so worth it to see the Grand Canyon for the first time.
