Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 3,724 reviews

Nos lo pasa mos genial, vimos el gran cañon ah que estava bastante nublado. Nuestra guia nos acompaño en todo moment o y explico la historia del inicio de Las Vegas, así como muchas más cosas durante el camino. Pudimos ver también un vídeo de la construcción de la presa Hoover y descubrir sus inicios. Lo recomendamos 100%, aunque si esta nublado no obtienes las mismas vistas, vale la pena igual. Nosotros no cogimos el skywalk porque nos habían comentado que tampoco valía tanto la pena, obtienes las mismas vistas sin tener que pagar el skywalk.

Mr. Wally was very nice and experienced. He knows how to avoid the crowds and maximize our enjoyment rather than wait in line. His drive also very safe and smooth. We truly enjoyed our trip.

Prompt pick up driver was safe and informed However the transport vehicle could of totally been better quality….I think that vehicle is worn out
