Great way to see more of the Grand Canyon
Carol_B
, Nov 2021
I booked this tour before our visit to Las Vegas. The Grayline bus was big which was great for the long drive. Our bus driver Ozzy was AWESOME! Very funny and did a great job of giving us history as we traveled to the Grand Canyon. The Buck Wild Hummer Tour was great, very timely. Our tour guide Trey was very patient, took pictures of our group and was a wealth of information about the canyon. Even the box lunch was good! I would recommend this tour as it is a great way to see more of the Grand Canyon.

Amazing but couple things to keep in mind
Maunish_S
, Nov 2021
It was a long trip to the Canyon but we did not feel bored as the tour guide kept us entertained- Grand Canyon was amazing. They do let you go on our own so there is a slight chance of getting lost , which we did. If you are not good with directions or have a tendency to get lost I would advise keeping up with the group or getting good at asking people where to go. Keep in mind that they may not know either. Listen to directions and keep your eyes and ears open. Not one of those tours where you don't have to think about anything and the guide does all the work for you and you just follow them.

Highly recommend this...worth every penny!!

The tour exceeded our expectation. The day started out a bit bumpy with misunderstanding the exact pickup location, but grey lines was helpful enough to call and let me know when the driver didnt find us in the location on time. But as the day started it kept really getting better and better. Ozzi had great sense of humour and kept us entertained and engaged throughtout the trip and even gave us awesome tips at each view point. We walked down from Mather point to Angel Bridge point on his recommendation and that experience just added the cherry on the top. Highly recommend doing that if your are up for a 2mile walk. But be mindful not spend a lot of time taking pictures as tempting as it could be...we got about 2 hours there and it was just right. The ride was about 16 hours pickup to drop off with just the right amount of breaks in between.

Ossy, the driver and tour guide was GREAT. He told us about every important landmark along the way and was very timely. He told us key details in order to maximize our time, views and ultimate experience. He made the trip enjoyable. I would definitely go again. Maybe more time at the canyon to walk from Mather to Bright Lodge would be helpful. Also the IMAX movie needs to be updated.
