The bus Driver, Douglas, The guide, Paul M, who were the best team to travel with... One thing I have to mention if I need to is Wish there were control for making quite while people moving in the bus. There was a 9 people group on our bus, there were crazy which I understood because they are in Vegas to have a fun but loud and rude and extremely loud all the way from the beginning to finsh but they did not control much wish they did for respect for others... Other than that, PAUL was awesome guy has bunch knowledge with good jokes...

Pick-up period 6-6.45 a.m. picked up at 6.45 a.m. - then drove to the neighboring hotel and changed there to a large bus... Finally left at 7.15 a.m., if we had known that we would have walked to the neighboring hotel and could have slept at least 1 hour longer. Unfortunately, the stop at the dam was a bit short - we would have liked to have walked on the dam but with a 5-minute photo break we didn't have time. (Bus stop at the top!) Viewing the Grand Canyon stations defies skipping from the first stop hardly feasible at that time, since many tour buses came at the same time and so had to wait for a shuttle bus with space. Attention warning, because we didn't know it: on the Skywalk, only the staff may take photos, mobile phones must be handed in. The photos then have to be bought - it took a lot of time to take the photos and buy them. Nevertheless, the canyon is worth the money and we would participate again. By the way, the bus driver was able to give great tips!

We were a little late getting picked up from the hotel, which affected how long we were able to stay at the West Rim. The Hoover Dam stop lasted about 25 minutes, which was sufficient time to snag some photos and look around. We stopped at a very small town and ordered a breakfast sandwich for $5 and ate an authentic tamale! At the West Rim, it was crowded for a Thursday and we waited approximately 20+ minutes for a bus, which is operated by the Hualapai tribe, to bring us to Eagle Point. The payoff: Skywalk was absolutely amazing! Be prepared to put all your belongings (bags, cell phones, cameras, etc.) in a locker and they will give you booties to put on your feet (no need to remove shoes). A photographer will take your pictures and for a fee, you get digital photos to download and share on social media. To get to Guano Point, you will have to wait for another bus. There, you can explore the area freely, some climbed rocks to get a better/different view, absolutely beautiful.
