This was an amazing trip. Long day but with a comfortable ride in the coach bus, we had plenty of room to stretch out and relax all along the way. Everything was exactly as described. Our bus driver was AMAZING. He gave us outstanding history on the area, the grand canyon and hoover dam. He was very passionate about his job, and it showed. I traveled with my 2 teenagers 14 and 18 and we all loved this tour. We spent 8 days vacationing from las Vegas to San Francisco and this was our favorite day next to Yosemite. I would highly recommend.
