I went on the July 2nd west rim Grand Canyon tour. What a great tour it was. My girlfriend and I had purchased the $79 Groupon for this tour and was well worth it. Our tour guides were Jody and Robert and they were fantastic. Knowledgable, fun, and no bs.
Although my review for this tour is excellent I did have a couple of minor criticisms. Our pick up was at Excaliber and was scheduled 6:30 am and we were not picked up until 6:50. Another heads up is to make sure you have the groupon information ready when you get there. We had to have our phones to look up the information needed. We had all the confirmation papers, but what they needed was a UPC code and voucher number from the Groupon website, so make sure you have that.
The bus that picked us up looked older on the outside but was still nice on the inside. The reason this company uses older buses is a great one. There is a 9mile unpaved rode to get to the west rim and most companies have to stop somewhere and switch to off road friendly buses. Because we were on an older bus already we didn't have to stop which got us to the west rim before the major tour groups and therefore we didn't have to wait in any long lines. Although we were picked up slightly late we still had the time promised to tour the grand canyon and got back on time. Jody was very to the point and made sure we were on schedule. Jody was also very funny and made the drive go by quickly.
I would highly recommend this tour.
