We had the front seats on the double decker (enclosed) bus and the view was outstanding! Our bus driver was named Walter and he did a fantastic job both driving and giving us need to know information. We did the Skywalk and actually spent all our time at Eagle point and Guano, so did not make it to the ranch. We had lunch at Guano (which was very good). Should we ever go back to Las Vegas we would definitely do this tour again!

There was three of us on this tour. We all three really enjoyed the tour. The bus drivers were all very helpful. We had one member with a walker and all the drivers were wonderful. The only negative thing I can say is there was not enough time to visit all the points in the west. There was just so much to take in, the canyon was breath taking. About another hour would have done it. It was definitely worth doing and I would recommend the tour to everyone.Thank you!

Once we got started, I had a wonderful time. Enjoyed the stop at Hoover Dam and 4 hours at the Grand Canyon west rim, and the informative and interesting bus drivers narration during the bus ride. The beginning of the trip was disorganized - long wait to get on the bus, d_elay in bus leaving, and the bus h_aving to go back to the start after 15 minutes to pick up 4 additional people.

Our trip was great , especially our driver Thomas. He made our long road trip very funny and entertaining. They picked us up and dropped us off at the exact time they told us.

I think the Skywalk at Eagle Point of the Grand Canyon West Rim is worth doing at least once just to have the experience. It is true that you will not have to spend a lot of time on it, but the view is breathtaking and it is just really cool to be on that glass bridge. No cameras allowed and you will be spending time posing for the professional photographer.
Regarding the bus ride, yes it is a long trip with multiple bus changes, but that is the nature of this trip. Make sure you take the bus shuttle frm Eagle Point & Skywalk to Guano Point. The latter offers a spectacular view of the canyon, a hiking trail to a rock formation called the Ant Hill that you can climb up to the top of if you have the will, at your own risk. Lunch is included and it is decent , but obviously not gourmet. Overall, I thought this was a great day trip.

We were travelling to Las Vegas in a party of three and opted to do the Helicopter, Skywalk and boat trip on the Colorado. We were collected outside the Ballys Hotel and were promptly taken to the rendezvous. This is w_here we met Duane out bus driver and tour guide for the day. Duane was an excellent host, very knowledgable and a lot of fun.
We all had a superb time! My only comment if you decide to take the helicopter option is that you will be limited for time at the Skywalk.
Thanks again for a GREAT DAY Duane.

We were picked up at our hotel, which was a huge perk. It was a long bus ride, but the driver was thoroughly amusing. He made sitting for 2+ hours bearable. Once we got to the west rim, we had 4 hours to do whatever we wanted. A couple we got friendly with did the helicopter tour and said it was the most amazing experience of their lives. It was a little pricey for us, but everyone who did it loved it. For those of us who couldnt quite afford the helicopter, there were three places at the west rim w_here you could go: The skywalk was amazing. You cant take your camera on the bridge, so that was a little bit of a letdown (not the fault of the tour, just a general observation), but its still worth the extra $$ for the add-on. Views at Guano Point (the second stop) cannot be beat. Simply breathtaking. Loved every second of it. The third stop, the "old west town"... not a whole lot going on there. On the way back (or on the way there, i think it depends on your driver) The Hoover Dam stop was ok. It would have been nice to actually walk over the dam. When they say 15 minutes for quick pictures they mean it! If you want to see the Grand Canyon and feel obligated to stop at the Hoover Dam, but dont want "the tour", this is the perfect excursion. Everyone has heard it before, but pictures do not do the Grand Canyon justice. Take this tour!!

Antony our driver was brilliant he told us how Las Vegas came about, also about the Hoover Dam & the Grand Canyon. Was really glad we picked the skywalk option and would recommend this trip to anyone very good value for money, as you stop off for photos at the hoover dam and have 3 different visits to the canyon. Will always remember this trip.
