Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Canyon, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

A great break from the casinos!!
Michael_O, Sep 2023
One of the best parts of our trip! Robbie was great and gave us a large amount of information on where to eat and where to visit while in Vegas!! The canyon and Hoover Dam was amazing!!
Fun, informative, and unforgettable experience!
Tammi_D, Sep 2023
We had an incredible and unforgettable experience! Our host was very informative about Las Vegas and our surroundings going to the Grand Canyon. We got great tips for things to do while we are here and even what not to do that isn’t worth our money. He knew a lot of great facts and was very engaging! We will recommend this tour to friends for sure.
Best time with Joe and Bernest at Grand Canyon
RicardoF_P, Sep 2023
I love the tour guide Joe and bus driver Bernest. Enjoyed the jokes and history. I felt very safe knowing what to do with the creatures I may or may not run into. I usually don't like driving with other people but I was comfortable and safe.
A Dam of emotion
Mark_C, Sep 2023
A very enjoyable tour. Nice drive, nice view. My only gripe was that I thought when booking that the tour would involve being able to walk across the Hoover Dam itself. Still, in all it was a very informative day. Both tour guide and driver were excellent though I did not like the fact that they suggested an amount of a gratuity for each person at several points during the day. A gratuity amount is determined by the quality of service provided and should not be influenced by those hosting to receive a set amount. However, the gratuity was well deserved. Thank you.

We had an amazing experience. Our tour was with Comedy on Deck and Ralph was our tour guide. He was hilarious and so helpful. He kept us very well informed to keep us safe and to have the best experience possible. We had plenty of time to see each stop on our trip.
Ask for Ralph!
Tampia_A, Sep 2023
Ralph, the tour guide, did an exceptional job in explaining the various sights and being timely to prevent long wait times at sights. Ask for Ralph at Comedy On Deck!

The whole trip was organised to absolute perfection. Due to Patrick’s experience and knowledge, the day ran smoothly, with no delays (first in line for sky walk 😊). Patrick kept us laughing and entertained for the whole trip and shared his extensive knowledge of not only GC and HD but also Arizona, Nevada and Las Vegas. Along with our fantastic drive Jose we couldn’t have asked for a better team.
