Really enjyoed the trip. Everything was planned well. They picked us up from our hotel in pickup mini buses and took us to a central meeting point where they had travel buses and breakfast ready for us beforehand. We left las vegas around 7:30. First stop was hoover dam for quick 10-15min. Second stop was for lunch midway(lunch was also prepacked in bus) and third we stopped when we touched route66. Finally we reached south rim Bright Angel lodge(1:30pm). It was mesmerizing. We took 2mile(approx 1hr) walk towards yavapai point. It was an easy trail but there was no tour guide to give history behind everything along the walk. I guess it's not feasible to get a guide since the time to return back to the start point was very limited. From yavapia point we took the orange bus shuttle to visitor lodge from where we walked 5 min to Mather point. Back to visitor lodge and we took a blue shuttle(30min) to the start point bright angel lodge. Where we spent some time looking at the scenery and having ice cream cones. Bus started back for Vegas at sharp 4:35 pm. Two quick stops while returning and we were dropped at our hotel in the same bus which took us to the canyon. There was plenty of chilled water on the bus which you can take at every stop. The trip driver Luana was so sweet and very informative. She gave history and present information all along the trip. Overall the trip experience was amazing and great bang for our buck. One thing that was little confusing in the morning of pick up was that we didn't receive any text message for our pick up. We were supposed to be picked at 6:00 but were picked at 6:35 and since we never received any text message we were in dilemma if anyone will pick us at all. The last communications was 1month back when we purchased the tickets from headout.com and received our confirmation. It will be great if one could receive a text message with the bus details and approx pickup time for the day of the pickup. (10/10)

Our customer executive told us that this tour involved a fair bit of walking, so he recommend that we wear walking shoes and comfortable clothing. That tip really helped us during the tour.
