Grey Line was the transportation provider. The driver’s name was Thomas. He was entertaining and knowledgeable. Trip was smooth except for a couple that returned to the bus 1.5 hours later than told. People on the bus were livid and Thomas held his professionalism but also let them know they were wrong. The trip was great otherwise. For someone who also wanted to go to see the Canyon. It was perfect for me and the family. But if you book the skywalk trip....beware... you cannot bring your camera or cell phone on to the outer platform. Be prepared to buy pictures from the establishment if you want any. They are reasonably priced $14.00 for 1 photo( I thought it would be much more).Buy the package about 10 pictures for 65.00. Just make sure you have the photographer take multiple pictures and angles!!
It was a well planned tour. We were picked up on time, communication was good, the travel itself was not boring coz we had an amazing driver 'Thomas', who kept entertaining us. We enjoyed the helicopter ride, boat ride and skywalk. The reason I rated a 9/10 is because I thought the customers who have selected helicopter, boat and add-ons like us had to literally run to finish all of it. Also, the cultural dance which was a part of the tour never really happened. We could not make it to that show. So, well it was all packed too close, though I must say the guides helped us orhanise well. They could only do that much, no blaming them. The operators must consider not fitting in too many options rather. But overall it was a good tour, a memorable one.
I’ve already reviewed this tour. Everything was wonderful except for the Skywalk Cafe. The meal tickets were included but, that was a waste of time. 1 1/2 hours waiting between the line and the preparation. Ridiculous! Two years ago at the second stop, lunch was grab and go. People go on this your for the view not to waste their time for a cheeseburger and fries. Some people on our tour didn’t t even eat because it took an eternity to prepare.
I really felt that I was getting closer to perfection, even though we did NOT drive through the 900 year old forest and that there was no guide in the area to guide us around. That meant, that I did not experience either Native American, their culture or dance. Maybe there was a house they were hiding in, I don't know. But I chose the Skywalk and it was amazing! But way was the guide not to be found in the area, to help us?
Amazing upgraded to Mercedes sprinter to start with then everything else that followed the helicopter ride, the boat trip & skywalk was just icing on the cake. Absolute must to be done
