Felt like got that for which had paid.
James_E, Apr 2024
Driver-Travel Guide was most accommodating, courteous and professional. Pickup and drop off were timely.
Don't miss out on this West rim tour!
Satarupa_D, Mar 2024
This was a wonderful small group (5) trip with Lankun aka mama. She is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality! She made the trip so much enjoyable. She gave us information, took our pictures, and stayed with our group the entire time. She was extremely encouraging and helpful and without her help I would not have been able to climb the rocks that I did! Another thing very helpful was that she texted with me all information the night before. I was traveling by myself. She answered all my questions. This was very important to make me feel comfortable about the trip. I recommend her tour to all!! Rupa
A fantastic tour and would highly recommend it.
KENNETH_L, Mar 2024
Brilliant tour. Our driver Chris made it one of the most enjoyable tours I have been on. His knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail was incredible. His social skill and sense of humour all added to the experience. He gave plenty of good tips during the tour and ensured the safety of the group was his priority at all times. Great job Chris
Wonderful day trip
Dawn_P, Jan 2024
Our guide, Matt, was wonderful! He made everyone feel welcome and told interesting facts all through town and in the parks. Mother Nature didn't cooperate at the Canyon, but that's no one's fault and he was so apologetic about it. He was a safe and efficient driver, too. Thanks for a wonderful day. I'd highly recommend!
Fun day
Amy_M, Dec 2023
Very wonderful trip! Nice relaxing ride! Matt was an awesome driver and guide. Views were unbelievable.
Highly Recommend
Sandra_C, Dec 2023
Would highly recommend the hoover dam and west rim tour. The skywalk is a must. Our tour guide Wally was the BEST!!! He was so informative and kind. He gave the best advice on how to maximize your time at each site, it made the whole experience that much better. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Great way to see the Grand Canyon in a small personalised group setting
Samantha_L, Oct 2023
Being able to be driven in A/C comfort with great commentary enabled us to view the amazing landscapes in Nevada and Arizona for both the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam (as well as drive through Joshua Tree National Park). Participating in the Skywalk out over the edge of the Grand Canyon at Eagle Point is an absolute must (but get in there early or there will be a huge line; we only had to wait 15-20mins). Splurge and buy the photos the professionals take (you can not take ANYTHING with you on the Skywalk including your own phone). You can buy 1 picture for $25 or 8+ personal pics PLUS 8-12 stock Grand Canyon pics that are just gorgeous - I recommend paying the $50 for all the personal and stock pics they are well worth it! You’ll be hard pressed to fit in Eagle Point (Skywalk , and sit down lunch with view of the Canyon - which is super fast 20 mins and we were out the door), Guano Point and Hualapai Point all in the 2.5 hours at the Canyon. Guano Point is one of the best for your own picture taking with a vantage point of the Colorado River. Hualapai Point is not as good for picture taking unless you have time to do the 25 minute hike to the edge. It has a very small Western replica town with a “trading post” for gifts, an art gallery, a shooting gallery, small restaurant and light refreshments (although we were disappointed that several things were not open). Hoover Dam was amazing but extremely hot in the setting western sun which it made it hard to take pictures after 3:30pm. Make the time to walk the bridge and be in two places at once (Nevada/Arizona state line on the top of the dam). Overall fantastic trip with a great guide and driver who gave us tips and was just so courteous and friendly…. I highly recommend this tour as you are in a comfortable small van with a maximum of 14 people.
Anisa_P, Oct 2023
Excellent tour guide made the whole experience alot of fun, and kept us active, which is what we wanted. Ample opportunities to take pictures and also a great photographer. Would highly recommend.
Fun road trip!
Patricia_M, Oct 2023
Fun road trip to the Grand. Canyon & Hoover Dam with informative & personable tour guide Matt Brown😃 Just wish there was more time to explore at the Canyon.
Helene_S, Oct 2023
Alex, was the best tour guide. So patient and kind to my 80 year old mother. Very knowledgeable, we would definitely book again.
Great Tour
Angela_A, Oct 2023
The experience was great. Alex was very informative. He has a lot of knowledge about the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. He was safety conscious and made sure everyone in the group was having a good time. He also stop a the best spot so everyone could get a picture with the 900 year old Joshua tree. My sister and I had a great time.
Patricia_B, Sep 2023
Ward was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable of the areas we visited! He took great care of our group! I would definitely recommend using this tour group!
Best option, excellent
James_R, Sep 2023
Best way to see these sights. The total group size was 6 (including the two of us) which was ideal. Jay the driver and guide for the day was very knowledgeable and also a bit of a comedian which when combined together made the day go quickly and smoothly. Plenty of water was handed out throughout the day (even though we had taken our own supply). The day lasted from 7am-5pm partially due to heavy traffic on the way back to the hotel. I would deffo recommend this as an option for those that do not want to be on one of the cheaper coach trips.
Happy we did it
Jan_B, Aug 2023
This tour to the Canyon made our visit soooo easy! We had no idea how many hoops we would have had to go thru on our own. Jay is fantastic! On time, well organized, fun & full of information. Only 7 people in our tour-perfect! Jay made sure we got to eat lunch in the rim-amazing. Highly recommend
Amazing experience!
Peter_H, Aug 2023

Will defenitely give her a 10/10 and recommend to any friends! attach below are some awesome pictures she took:)
Not overly impressed
Kelly_M, Jul 2023
Our small group tour was canceled because we were the only ones who booked it. We were loved to the bigger tour. I was not impressed and didn't think it was worth what we paid for it. We were picked up at our hotel then brought to the Luxor and weren't given any direction on who to talk to. The tour operstors were confised about whether we had rickets or not. The first bus driver told us we owed $115 even though we paid for the tour up front. There seemed to be a lack of communcation between viator and the comaony runninf the tour. The air conditioning on the bus could not keep the bus cool. It was really hot on the bus on the drive back. Knowing what I know now I should have just taken refund for the small tour. I didn't realize viator didn't run the tours themselves in the future I will book directly with the company running the tour.
Amazing day tour
Payal_J, Jun 2023
Amazing day tour. Much better as a smaller tour as you get to the canyon earlier than the big buses. Right amount of time at the canyon and dam. Highly recommend it.
Best Experience Ever
Kirsten_A, Jun 2023
Alex was absolutely amazing! He really took care of us and gave us an amazing tour! He was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. This was one of the best experiences our group has had. Buying our tickets with Viator was very easy. The money for the tour was well worth it. The Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of the world and a must see. If you book this tour definitely request Alex from iTours.
Best tour ever!
Minko_C, Jun 2023
The best tour we ever had! We chose a small group tour since we are traveling with a child 6 years old. Our tour guide, Lankun was amazing! Great with kid, well prepared, very informative and made everything easier for us.
