Rated 1 out of 5 by notsatisfiedcustomer We do not recommend this tour at all!
We attended your Grand Canyon South Rim VIP Tour on Friday 21st of October 2016.
My husband and I attend every year at least 4 guided tours in the world and write a very popular travel blog. We must say, we were really intensely disapointed. The tour wasn't worth the money at all!!! Firstly, a guided tour for that price requires a guidance through everything with historic facts and not only the transport with some archaic videos. I can watch videos by myself if I wanted to. Basically we paid only for transport. That's unacceptable. Secondly, the route 66 stop was a joke. You should skip that part in your tour. The spot isn't nice and the route 66 plate isn't special aswell. Thirdly, the stop at the grand canyon was nothing more than a touristic, ununique spot. We were left to walk by ourselves for only 2 miles and we already headed back. The guide should have come with us and tell us about the canyon - like... guide!! (we know he had to stay by the car for inspection reasons. well then, a second guide should be with us!). We should also have gone to the river in the canyon, since that is one of the most famous things about the canyon. So instead of stopping at the point that we went to and leave the guests alone to walk 2 hours, we should have been guided and we should have gone to another spot as well where we can see the river. Fourthly, the food was also not of any high quality. It should be a VIP tour, we paid a lot of money. So the "breakfast" was nothing but snacks full of sugar. I stayed hungry and had to buy a burrito at 9 AM. Same for lunch. The sandwich was made without love and it was small. For future guests, please tell them to bring their own stuff, if you are not planing to change something about your mealplan. And lastly, on the way back we watched a world war 1 movie with James Franco. What does this movie have to do with the tour?! If I wanted to watch a movie, I can watch it by myself! So please, if you already do not want to guide, as a person, like telling us about historic stuff, so that we get back from the tour with more knowledge, then at least let us watch something that fits to the tour subject. The most funny thing was, that we weren't allowed to talk to each other during the movie. That's really unacceptable. If people want to watch freetime movies, they should do it at home. So if the guide is not guiding, and the movie is not about what the point of the tour was, then please leave us in peace during the ride, like talk to each other and to the other guests. Learn something from them, chat, and make connections.
This feedback has nothing to do with the guide as a person. He was very kind and funny. But the concept of the tour is really unacceptable.
We hope that you change something in future. Add more educative stuff to it. Make people feel fulfilled at the end of the tour. Make them KNOW more. Make them have seen the most possible thing. Don't call your tour VIP if its nothing more than a transport. We booked VIP because it promises a certain quality. But it didn't reach that level at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RevBass Overall, a great tour for the price.
Great day-long tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and used the extensive driving time to show videos of the two sights we visited. The breakfast and lunch items provided were a great bonus considering the long day, although the lunch salad was fairly sparse. Appreciated having a smaller bus and smaller group of fellow travelers who were all prompt and friendly. Also appreciated the options for walking distances at the Grand Canyon. We did the last drop-off and still saw plenty. The only downside of this tour is seeing on the southern rim of the Canyon; a different perspective would have been great - but I guess that is a different tour....

Rated 4 out of 5 by TeamLester Amazing trip!!
This is a great trip start to finish! Tour is by Adventure photo tours . Breakfast is provide in a sack lunch style which ch includes a muffin, cheese stick,nuts and a gornola bar as well as one angel juice. The driver was very informative about the area . On the way you will watch videos about the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. It is a long drive that seems like a short drive because of the stops and the videos. It is a long day so be well rested and don't plan anything else unless it's after 8:00pm. With all that said book this trip it is well worth it especially if you only have a couple days in Vegas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chelle2726 Amazing experience!
The tour was great, but our tour guide made it! Barry, our tour guide, was enthusiastic and very informative. He made sure everyone knew where we were headed, fun facts along the way and ensured everyone's safety and comfort for the day long trip. Seeing the Grand Canyon and walking along the trail was an amazing experience with spectacular views. I highly recommend this tour, and ask for Barry he will keep you entertained!

We had never been to Hoover Dam or The Grand Canyon so I really wanted to go while we were in Vegas. Our tour guide, Barry, was fantastic and made the trip so enjoyable. We had a great group. We are so glad we did this trip. Yes, a long day, but it didn't seem so bad with all that was planned. Grand Canyon a must see for sure. Wow. Fantastic tour!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Prudence Guide was very good.
The road trip was very long,approx. 4hours each way. Good film entertainment during the trip. Our guide/driver was excellent, very calm and reassuring. Of coarse, the canyon was awe inspiring.
A very good trip!!!
