4.8 / 5

It was a great trip. Seeing Grand Canyon south rim was an unforgettable experience! Took our breath. With snow and fog and hail, we got lucky that park wasn’t closed. Second day got to see all the locations except Zion because it closed due to snow. We weren’t that disappointed with that because 1 - it’s not in our control, 2-we were all really tired. It’s physically demanding if you walk around each stop and explore. The tour bus isn’t top of the line but sitting in front seat you can see the majestic views really good. The overnight stay was comfortable- 2 queen beds in a big room. For our group of 5, we booked 3 tickets + 2 tickets separately to get two rooms.

Amazing tour, nice and knowledgeable guide and driver! Magnificent landscapes are seen crossing three states in just three days. Perfect organization.

Amazing day. Beautiful scenery, comfortable vehicle, small group with lots of time at stops. Just as the description said. Would 100% recommend
