Great day
Christina_K
, Mar 2020
It was great being on our own schedule and not "stuck" on a tour bus for 10-12 hrs. Hertz rented us a nice (brand new) SUV for the day. When we arrived at the check in at the West Rim to get our tickets they told us we'd only have two lunch options (rather than 3), but ultimately, we opted for the cafe with a view at the skywalk which wasn't included. We spent the majority of our visit at the second stop with the glass skywalk. The third stop had really amazing views too with the river below. The weather was perfect and the shuttle was easy on/off at each stop. It was a great day.

Thank You for taking the time to write us a review. We apologize that there weren't 3 lunch options to choose from. However, the Grand Canyon is undergoing construction at one location. We will update our tour information. Again, thank you for joining us.

The gran canyon is spectacular and well worth a visit. I would have preferred to spend longer in the Grand Canyon area and less time in Las Vegas, that's my fault. Our day started badly as the car was delivered late if at all. After waiting for over an hour I took myself to the airport to collect it, this cost more on top of a what is a very expensive day! After that it was amazing, however, you can look at all the elements and put it together easily yourself and save a small fortune. This is unusual as I found the trips on Viator very good value.

Amazing trip. The car hire company picked us up from the hotel which was a good start to the day. However they did not have a SUV available and we were given a 7 seater people carrier! Not what we had hoped for as there were only two of us! Once we had got used to the idea of our mini bus the rest of the trip was fabulous. The drive to the canyon was quite simple and once there the three stops on the tour were well organised with buses running every few minutes so we could spend as long as we liked at each stop. The lunch is very basic but welcome in the heat but the crows that join you at the restaurant are terrifying - swooping in at every opportunity - very scary!! The views are awesome and although the Skywalk is impressive on the third stop we walked around the edge and climbed higher. It was truly indescribable one of the most magnificent places on earth. A definite must if in Las Vegas.

Loved this trip we did the self drive to the Grand Canyon, The waiting time for the Helicopter was slow and the heat on the day was crazy. We enjoyed the helicopter experience and the boat ride, however, the bus tour part due to the heat made it uncomfortable. Can't control the weather though.

The person at the car rental place was 15 minutes late and didnt even apologize for it. She practically gave no information. The gas tank was practically empty. All of Lwhich defeated the purpose of trying to leave early. The Grand Canyon was great, but the other aspects of the trip were not.

Great way to see the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam at your own pace. It was an simple process picking up and dropping off the SUV. The vehicle was in excellent condition and the tour staff was very friendly. They give you a map and the drive only about 2 1/2 hours from Vegas and so beautiful. We were able to stop whenever and wherever we wanted to. We would definitely recommend doing this self drive trip. And booking through Viator was fast and efficient.

Beautiful trip. Best way to see the Grand Canyon. The Suv was first rate and we were able to get it at 7am to get an early start which is a must. The directions were clear and concise. We were able to spend our time at each place as we wanted and not being pushed by a tour guide. Highly reccomend.
