We had a wonderful time going to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is a very long ride, almost 600 miles round trip, so bring a pillow. Our driver Jeff made the trip very pleasant by giving us lots of amusing stories and history about Vegas and helping us all understand how to tour the canyon once we got there. This company actually does give you 3hrs+ in the canyon and good directions on how to walk 2 1/2 miles along the edge. The construction at Mather point (Jeff said it has been going on since spring) looks almost done but we dd not see any workers on a sunny Thursday afternoon...
We were picked up on time, met other people at the Excalibur and after getting a snack bag (OJ, banana, cinnamon bun) we left before 7:30am. Driver said because the new bypass bridge was open ahead of schedule we would cross over but not see the Hoover Dam (he did drive slower and give us a photo op from the bus on the way back), he apologized and said it used to be a stop but said we would get back to Vegas early. We did get back by 8:15pm to our hotel.
The only bad part of the trip was that the DVD player had very little sound so the movies were hard to understand. For some reason "Vegas Vacation" played a little louder and was great to see as we came back to Vegas. Otherwise it was a very good trip and I would recommend this company. Ask for Jeff for your driver as he very funny and helpful to all.
