Phil the driver and tour guide. He was VERY VERY informative. He told us where all hotspots to go view.
The trip would have been a 5 star except too many stops before going on trip. We had only two hours to view the canton. Not enough time if you really want to take in view. For Vegas to have such a high cordivad rate not enough cordivad measures of ensuring people wore there mask.

Beautiful of course, but a day's bus ride there and back
Jun 2021
Well worth the money with car rentals being so exorbitantly high priced! Great way to see the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, although it is an entire day's journey there and back, so mainly worth it if you are staying a while in Vegas to leave time for doing other stuff on your list.

This trip seems to be for non-active folks more than us- I would have liked to had time to hike just a little rather than just going to lookouts. This takes you to the most tourist-friendly spots. Includes lunch.

Thanks for the great tour!
I had a really good time thanks to this tour. I picked the package that included the Hummer tour and it was worth it. The 1-2 star reviews had me nervous. How this tour operates today led me to an unforgettable positive experience.

Fil was a great driver and guide for the trip up to the canyon and back. The A/C and bus bathroom worked (if anyone was worried based on other reviews). The stops were short thanks to other passengers also being quick about being back on the bus in time.

It's a long trip, so remember to take plenty of water (and some snacks). We were gone from early morning pickup to 11:00PM dropoff back in Vegas. I also packed a battery for my phone loaded with Netflix downloads and Spotify (the bus DVD player broke mid-trip). Plan accordingly.

Buck Wild Tours was exactly what I was hoping for: fresh air, multiple stops at different views, well informed tour guide, and quicker travel between points.

The trip back was pleasant and we happened to see the Hoover Dam from a distance at night (what I was hoping for).

Don't forget to being water!

Dear zulia66, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us feedback. Of course, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your day with us. A day trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon does make for a long day as it is over 570 miles round trip from Las Vegas, crossing some of least inhabited part of the US. When traveling around the American Southwest we are limited in choices that can accommodate a full size coach, so please accept our apologies for the crowded conditions at our rest stops. We are happy that you enjoyed the Grand Canyon enough to leave us a 3 star rating. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line Las Vegas, I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Regards, Zachary

Our bus driver 5617 was unprofessional; we started by him being inpatient because I had to use the bathroom , made my family wait outside the bus in a 110 degrees until I arrived from the bathroom;
He had the best bus seats reserved for a family that he went to pick up .At the end of the trip he demanded tips and gave us a disgusted look while we were leaving the bus . Almost demanding a tip ; using Spanish to ask for it !! Propina papi !!!!
Thomas drove us from Vegas to the Grand Caynon on Thursday the 17 and the bus number was 5617 .
He was condescending , rude !! A shame to that company!!!

Dear Alex, While we are normally happy to have anyone post a review, whether they are thrilled with our services or not- we do have an issue with your post here. Thomas has a long history with Gray Line Las Vegas and normally receives amazing 5 star reviews from guests. A few days ago you posted on Facebook making some very ugly and untrue remarks regarding Thomas. Your post here is a direct result of our posting the actual facts in response. Sincerely, Zachary
