We originally booked the South Rim to Grand Canyon with quick stop at Hoover Dam. We were contacted about a new tour which included driving by the dam and a nice buffet lunch for same price. Started off bad when driver got stopped for speeding. That put us late. Did see beautiful views on the very long trip. Lunch was moved to a smaller hotel due to renovation of original buffet stop. Food was a soy burger, Cajun Chicken, green beans, salad, tator tots, salad. It was just ok. More like something at a hospital cafeteria. Everyone complained of the sodas being flat. My entire family had flat cokes. Asked the manager for more drinks because they were flat no fizz. Her response was that well y'all were late that's why. I was furious so I asked her since our driver was late y'all have to serve us old drinks. She did not apoligize and tried to play it off by talking about the Canyon. I watched her pour my daughter another drink straight from a freshly opened can and it was flat too. It was if they were mad at us for something we had no control over! It was a very low budget meal that looked throwed together and it was just enough we could eat in hopes of eating something better later. They stoped at the smallest stores for breaks and there were four tour buses total including ours. This made the stops stressful and it was too crowded because they only were able to allow 20 minutes at stops. Rushed at the Canyon but it was nice to see even though two hours at the two stops on the park was all the time we had. One hour per each. On the way back stopped at a store that had a Subway. That too was a twenty minute stop. Very tiny store. Long line to get sub and long line for bathroom. We had to get out of the sub line and go to bathroom because we ran out of time. Didn't get to eat on way back. Arrived back at our hotel around 9:30 pm so we were starving. I would not recommend this tour. I would rent a car and take two days at least to go see the Grand Canyon. You can not enjoy it as much as you would if you drove on your own. I would suggest going then getting a hotel room for one night before returning to Vegas. It is a VERY long ride to the Canyon from Vegas. On way back we passed by the Hoover Dam. Seen it about 6 seconds in the dark. Could not get a picture from the bus window. Very disappointed.
