We really enjoyed our tour with Pink Jeep Tours. We were picked up and dropped off back to our hotel, making it really easy for us, and the tour included breakfast and lunch.
The tour group was small, so be prepared to get to know your fellow tourers. We had a lovely group of six other people (nine of us in total), and everyone was very friendly.
It's a long drive out to the Grand Canyon, so we were pleased we went with Pink Jeep as the vehicle was very comfy and air conditioned.
Our tour included a short visit to Hoover Dam. If you'd like to spend longer here, it might be worth considering a different tour. We had 20 minutes, which included walking time to a nearby bridge, which has a really good view of Hoover Dam.
Our tour guide Bobby was keen to beat the crowds at the Grand Canyon, which was good as a little while after we'd been there, swarms of coaches of people turned up. Try to go early as it can get a little overcrowded.
We didn't do the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon as we'd been told it's a little over expensive for what it is. You can choose to purchase a ticket there if you change your mind. A few people on our tour chose to do the Skywalk, and we a bit miffed that the Skywalk price didn't include the cost of your photo. You can take some amazing photos right next to the Skywalk on your own camera for free! Our tour guide knew some really good spots to stand to take photos, so we didn't feel like we missed out on not doing the Skywalk.
Afterwards, we visited a ranch for lunch. The tour guide will either do lunch here or at the previous location where you get the buses to the Grand Canyon (these are separate to your previous mode of transport). If you're vegetarian, hold out for the ranch as they offer more veggie options. There's a magician on site and you can also take part in a shoot out (shooting blanks).
I'd definitely book with Pink Jeep Tours again.
