It was a wonderful experience, comfortable bus the group we traveled with was great! Our tour guide Loreana was knowledgeable, gave us lots of history and some really good information on how to maximize our time there. My only suggestion would be for better representation on the buses so many picking up at hotels going all places. It was hard to figure out what bus was what.

This rating isn't because of Viator (they should not be booking trips to the south rim as it is not open to tour buses at this time and wasn't at the time of my trip ) This review is because of Sweetours which who my tour was booked through..... They were awesome. When I called to confirm my south rim tour I was informed that they weren't offering that tour (for the above reasons) but that they would upgrade me to a west rim tour which was closer and offered the sky walk. Sweetours sent a shuttle to pick us up at our hotel (MGM grand) and brought us to the large tour bus we would be taking to the Grand Canyon. Mike was the shuttle driver and was very courteous and helpful. Our tour guide was Walter and he was fantastic. He made sure to let us know of any photo ops along the way as well as being full of knowledge about the area and the Hualpai Indians and their culture. He also made it fun along the way of the 2 1/2 trip. The lunches they provided were good & they made sure to note any food allergies and keep them seperate. Despite the Hoover Dam being closed to tourists, he made sure to let us know about the photo op when we returned from the canyon while going over the Hoover Dam bypass bridge.

The south rim is currently closed during covid! We were notified a day before our trip that we would be visiting the West Rim. however we had THE BEST TIME. our driver Anthony really gave us an awesome experience. We were able to visit Eagle Point and Guano point. JUST BEAUTIFUL. Continental Breakfast, Lunch and water bottles were included. it’s a 2-3 hours drive so you have more than enough time to rest before you climb up the rocks to view the Grand Canyon. Would deff recommend this excursion.

Thanks for your very gracious words on your West Rim experience. Yes, Anthony is a proven expert and he is very passionate about what he does. This portion of the Grand Canyon is absolutely beautiful with amazing views and colors. So glad you could travel with us. Comeback next year when the South Rim opens and we would be glad to take you there also. Please stay healthy, safe and close to your family.
