Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Canyon, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

Comedy on Deck (guide Parker & driver Bernice) were the best! Bernice was professional & courteous - Parker was funny & informative! Highly recommend.
Most awesome experience we had out here!
Sam_P, Mar 2023
We didn’t know we were going on the comedy on deck bus, but we most definitely had an awesome time. All the stops we made were perfect for time before we needed to be back on the bus. Both the hover and the Grand Canyon were exactly what we wanted it to be. Ralph was great and a funny guide, was very knowledgeable as well. Thanks for everything!
The Best DAM Trip Family Trip Ever
Peggy_K, Mar 2023
My most memorable part of the trip was seeing the joy in children's and grandchildren's eyes when they saw the canyon. They were excited about seeing the dam, climbing the rocks at the canyon and taking family pictures. The scenery was breathtaking. Johnny and Lafayette were great hosts. I'm afraid of mountain roads, but felt safe with Lafayette behind the wheel. Johnny is a wonderful tour guide. He gave the group wonderful history of the area throughout the trip. I think he made the trip a lot fun!!

Rachel_H, Mar 2023
The helicopter ride had been booked for 1pm, we were told this once we arrived at the Grand Canyon, it didnt leave much time to get photographs and enjoy the views as we also had to get lunch before the helicopter ride. A little bit rushed but worth it

A fun way to spend an amazing day at the Great Canyon
JuanFrancisco_H, Mar 2023
The tour was awesome. Stunning views. Joe was a great guide, and we had a lot of fun. The Skywalk is not anything special, you can skip it and save some bucks.
As Grand as could be
James_M, Mar 2023
Had an awesome time at grand canyon,well worth the wait,made even more enjoyable by our two guides johnny and Mel,who kept us up to date with information, and grand prix standard driving by Mel lol,if you're thinking of taking a trip to the grand canyon then look no further, highly recommend
Perfect tour for first timers
Brooklynn_H, Mar 2023
Johnny and driver Mel were the best. Mel was really respectful and didn’t break too hard or drive too fast. He slowed down when we were passing certain things so we could get a little longer look out the window. And Johnny was very professional and knowledgeable. He did crack jokes but I wouldn’t consider it a comedy tour. However, I didn’t mind that it wasn’t full comedy. He went over so much and we learned so much. I am so happy I spent the money on this tour. It was a little long tho to travel with kids (even for me it was just a little too long) It’s definitely an ALL day thing. Don’t bring the kids unless they are older than 10.
Justin_D, Mar 2023
Our guide, Andrew, was excellent. It was an incredible trip that was well organized. The views were amazing. My wife and I had a fantastic time!

Fun day at the Grand Canyon
Devin_H, Mar 2023
We started by stopping at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign for pictures. Then on to a great breakfast and a stop at the Mike O'Callaghan Pat Tillman Memorial bridge before the trek to the Grand Canyon. The tour guide was awesome armed with interesting information and funny jokes to keep us entertained. At the Grand Canyon there was beautiful views and photo opportunities along with a great lunch. This is a great way to see one of thr natural wonders of the world HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
