It was a great adventure. I was able to get many great photos. I wish the busses were available more as we only had a limited time and spent 15-20 mins per station waiting for a busy. I didn’t get to the third stop but we will return for sure. The recorded tour guide was a nice touch and out driver was polite courteous and a dang good driver.

Helicopter & boat ride was awesome, such a contrasting perspective seeing the canyon from the bottom as the river is a lot wider than it looks from above! Bus driver was cool too with lots of stories. Skywalk was ok, but not really worth the hour queue - there’s more queues inside to get the photo. Because we did that we didn’t have time for lunch. Definitely recommend the trip though.

It was nice, had a great time. The tour guide was awesome. The only thing I would recommend is maybe making a map of the pick places. For someone who is a tourist and really bad with directions, the text message that was sent to me did not help. "Your pickup is 6:45am from the 1st St Entrance of the Golden Nugget Hotel. That is in the back of the Golden Nugget, near the Starbucks" I had to go to the next pick location because I missed my pickup because I was not in the right place, which I had already paid for parking. The next stop was the same. I had to ask around for help. I suggest a map. The rest of the trip was great!!!!
