“Desert view tour to be skipped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I figuered I book a tour with the national park, in order to avoid any parking Problems. There are None and the additional Information you get is not that much, that the expensive tour can easily be left out.

“Don't spend the money-stay in Vegas!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

We love to see sights and historical monuments, but I'm telling you right now--Hoover dan is not worth spending 7 hours with a tour company to see. We tried really Har to go into it with a great attitude, but have decided this wasn't for us.

Here are the scheduled events of this tour: 1) stop at las Vegas sign (enjoyed this opportunity) 2) on to a small airport where we officially purchased our tour tickets (annoying to have to stop again so soon on the trip) 3) Hoover dam (guided tour sucks-really nothing to see on the inside...the best part is the dan outside itself, and lake Mead) 4) drop passengers off at cruise (if there are any on your bus that are part of that..which is just more time for you to spend on the bus. The hot not much air conditioning bus. I do want to point out that Tony, our tour guide is hilarious! Liked him a lot. 5) lunch. IMPORTANT: you do not eat until at least 2pm!!!! We were starving, as we ate before boarding the bus at 8:40. Oh lordie, and the nasty buffet they take you to, is aweful. I wouldn't have paid $1.99 for that buffet. Also you have to stay there until 4...that's two hours at the buffet, that takes you at most 30 mins together thru and eat. They leave you there to spend money at the tiny casino. The people were nice, but er got bored as it is now 20 minutes after 4:00 and our bus still hasn't picked us up. Keep in mind they say that RBI tour starts at 4:00 and ends at 4:00, which lead us to believe we'd be back at our resort at 4:00. Glad we didn't make reservations for dinner after the tour! Now on to the chocolate factory-so we will be back well after 5:00 pm.

If it were me reading this, I'd want an unbiased, honest review and so that is what I am trying to provide to you.

I hope you find this review helpful.

“WORST TOUR COMPANY EVER”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We booked tour with them by calling them, next day when we were waiting for bus , bus came very late to hotel and then we had small hand luggage , bus driver was so sick he argued and bad mouthed us and did not wait for 2 mins for us to drop the luggage in cloak room

he left us and asked to catch taxi and catch him at their office..*&
mother** ..no one should book tour with them

they always stop at mc donals cos they get huge commission , some ppl went to burger king which was near to mc d..than bus drive scolded passengers saying if u dnt do what i say then u have to bear the consequences....Do your self a favor dont travel with this tour company
if u want to be safe...also they dnt come before 12.30 in the midnight

“NO SHOW TOUR!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

Quite simply, i booked the trip, three days before , they gave me a confirmation # for Sunday and at 9am no bus showed i called at 10am they said they canceled, they took so long on hold i gave up to check why!!!!. Bottom line DONT TRUST THEM your day is wasted they will not show and because they have no money they wil not commit and you are left high and dry, even though sending confirnation 12 before. no phone call or email or nothing... a mickey mouse fly night company... they do this every week apparently so im told...

“OMG! the absolute worst tour company in the world! stay away!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

From start to finish this company is the pits!
1st lie: the cost doubles with extra charges, fuel, credit card, processing for each person!
2nd lie: the S. Rim tour does NOT get back at 9pm-9:30..11pm-12midnight if you are lucky
3rd lie: bus drivers are not tour guides...I don't know -is not the answer you want to hear about any question we asked...
expect to wait in line after line and be rushed all day, the only good part was the 11/2hrs at the canyon off the bus.
Just horrible from the start!
