This was an excellent tour. There were plenty of stops to stretch your legs. Our driver, Dywan, was great! He made sure to point out all the good landmarks along the way and was very courteous. He made the day enjoyable. The south rim was beautiful and I'm so glad we carved a day out in our trip to see it.

The trip was great, the drive was also comfortable and I would have rated a 5 if it wasn't for the bus driver being so rude making rude remarks and at the end of the trip ASKING FOR TIPS? If he wasn't so rude, I wouldn't have a problem tipping him and writing a 5 star review.

This was a lovely day trip to South Rim of Grand Canyon. The driver Ozzy was knowledgeable and pleasant. The bus was clean and sanitized. Lunch was organized and well planned. Ozzy was perfect with quick points to optimize the walk of Grand Canyon. Beautiful day! Plan on an all day adventure 💜

He took us to all the major points and gave us enough time to rest and rejuvenate.

The tour we took last week to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon was honestly the worst tour I’ve ever taken in my life. When we booked the tour, we were told we would be picked up from our hotel around 5:30am. Then when we called to confirm, they told us to go to another hotel, 2 hours later to be picked up there. The bus was extremely uncomfortable and way too full. There were too many people in a cramped space, especially during a pandemic. This was even more unfortunate since we spent around 15 hours on this bus. We got no more than 10 minutes to spend at the actual Grand Canyon. This was not all due to holiday traffic. Poor time management and leaving 2 hours later than planned made it impossible to reach the Grand Canyon before dark. There were also several people on our bus who needed to be dropped off at the airport since they were taking a plane ride over the Grand Canyon. Their plane had issues and we ended up having to sit for an hour on the bus to wait for them to return to get back on the bus so we could leave for the Grand Canyon.

Even though we left at 7:50am, we did not arrive at the Grand Canyon until 5:00pm when we had about 10 minutes before dark. Our bus driver told us we had to get out and look and come back to the bus. I can’t believe we drove for over 4 hours and got only a few minutes to enjoy the location of our tour. I felt especially bad for the rest of the people on the bus who had come here from other countries and this was a once in a lifetime trip for them.

After spending around 10 minutes at the Grand Canyon, we headed right back for another 4+ hour drive where we arrived back to our hotel at around 11:30pm. I can’t believe we drove all day for 10 minutes at the Grand Canyon.

We are so disappointed and so were several others on the bus. I emailed Gray Line several days ago about my concerns and they couldn’t even be bothered to respond to my email. I wouldn’t recommend this tour to anyone.

Dear claireclai, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and we are sorry that we missed your sightseeing expectation. I would like to apologize for the confusion regarding your hotel pickup time. Prior to the pandemic we used to start pickups earlier, however as our check-in procedures changed due to the pandemic, we moved our first pickup times to 7:30 am, a change most of our guests have welcomed. No one at Gray Line would have told you that we pick up at 5:30 am, so we are unsure of where you would have received that information. Additionally, while it is correct that we left the lunch stop a bit later than planned, the main delay to the arrival time at the Grand Canyon rim was due to extremely heavy holiday traffic entering the Grand Canyon National Park. We do not mean that this was heavy traffic for a normal day, as it was extremely backed-up taking into consideration the holiday. Our company has been taking guests to the Grand Canyon National Park for over 40 years and the delay to enter the park was much worse than on any other Thanksgiving Weekend. Unfortunately, the National Park service does not offer an expedited entry for regular users, including sightseeing companies, so our coach was delayed by well over an hour gaining entry to the Park. We do understand that the natural light conditions upon arrival were not optimal, however other guests have told us that the views were still incredibly impressive. Many visitors to the Grand Canyon actually seek out the sunset period for the way the light shadows some parts of the Canyon and often provides amazing "Instagram" photos. While we are sorry that we missed your expectations, we are not offering refunds as we do believe we provided all the services that are outlined in our brochures and on our website regarding our South Rim Grand Canyon tours and that the delay entering the National Park was primarily due to a lack of staffing by the National Park Service, a governmental agency. In closing, we want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zachary
