Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 828 reviews

If you don’t mind spending a day away from Las Vegas then this is the tour for you. The only cons I can think of is that there are only a few stops to use the restroom and the fact that the tour starts early in the morning. However, Bryce and Zion Canyon is a must see and its well worth seeing at least once. Water and lunch is provided by the tour company and if you ain’t a morning person like me, you can take a power nap on the drive there. Overall this was a great tour and I would like to go again on my next trip to Vegas.

This was an amazing experience!! They take you to all the highlights. Our driver Ita was so knowledgeable and definitely made the trip fun!!

Be ready for a long day of travel. The bus did make enough stops for food and bathroom breaks.

The tour was really very good and the guide and the driver were very kind and patient.

Works well. I am glad i brought this prior to the trip
