The Tour guide was excellent. (Driver of bus 2005). He keep us entertained with his explanations jokes and humble personality and gave us ample time to explore the locations, great tips for new tourists and does/don'ts. Keep it up. Will visit again when I am in the area and anybody that reads this and having a second thought about taking this tour, DONT DOUBLE THINK IT. JUST DO IT.. 😆.. it is worth every penny. Thanks to viator/sweetours for the wonderful experience.

It's always a tough choice which is the better portion of the Grand Canyon to visit. We like to think both the South and West Rims are great places to visit so we are glad you were able to see both. Thanks again for choosing Sweetours and come see us again.

Time cut short.

We started almost an hour late as the driver was waiting for a group of passengers who went to the wrong hotel. This cut into our time allotted at the Grand Canyon. We then left the Grand Canyon over 35 minutes late as that same group did not return to the bus on time, despite being warned of the departure time on several occasions and being told that the bus would leave promptly with or without all passengers onboard. The driver was knowledgeable and courteous, however we did not receive the service we paid for as our time was cut short.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We also share your frustrations that you experienced during the tour. This is a rare occasion when customers do not comply with instructions, but it does happen. We apologize for what happened during your tour and unfortunately our drivers have to comply with time restrictions as a consequence. At the same time, we are glad that you had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon during your Las Vegas visit. Once again, apologies from us and we hope you had a safe trip home.
