What people are saying about Grand Canyon West Rim

The trip was comfortable. The guide was knowledgeable and courteous. While we spent more time than needed at some of the sites - like "Last Stop" - I would have enjoyed a stop on the way back at the historic 'Boulder City'. The helicopter tour could have been longer by ten minutes helping see both sides of the canyon closer. The boat ride was very good.

Driver Willie was smooth pilot of our double decker tour bus. Tour guide Brandon was very accommodating to all guests on taking pictures and history, trivia and information that we see along the road. Thank you driver Willie and Brandon.

Awesome your! Relaxing bus ride, hilarious bus driver Thomas! Lots of time to view the beautiful canyon and amazing skywalk! Definitely a trip to do!

Gia was a great tour guide, full of information and very helpful.

It was great. We had a great tour guide name Brandon.
