Great way to spend a day.
, Mar 2020
Great value. Well organized. A shoutout to our guide/ driver Anthony. A good way to get a sample of the Grand Canyon. If you want a full experience it will take longer than a day and this is not the way to do it. The stops and the meals were adequate. Plenty of water and onboard videos explaining the sights. If you're going be sure to check the weather at the destination. It is not nearly as warm as Vegas.
Picked up on time. Some other passengers were late. Not the company's fault, but a reminder to future travelers to be on time. The bus was comfortable, but the video screen in front of me did not work, the driver/tour guide excellent. Hoover Dam a major feat. Grand Canyon a wonder. More than enough time to visit the Canyon. Picked up at 6, back at 11pm - a very long day, but really unavoidable to see what we saw
Our tour guide AKA driver Dirk was entertaining as well as informative which made a very memorable trip to Grand Cannon , Bolder Dam. Had a wonderful time as well as breathtaking. Thank you o much Dirk . Frank & Paula
Grand Canyon plus seeing the Hoover Dam at night on the way back.

Tour was long but very worthwhile. Especially our guide Wally. Hoover Dam is amazing as well as the Grand Canyon. It was magnificent. I felt we had enough time. They also adhered to my food request and produced an excellent salad! Also enough stops along the way to use the facilities. Highly recommend the tour.
Do you really think that it's a good idea to spend more than 11 hours in the bus and to have less than 3 hours at the place? Once there the bus driver let us do a short unquided hike. There was no other quide. We did the hike under pressure and took photos under pressure because we were afraid that we might return late and miss the bus. People who really want to enjoy the Grand Canyon shouldn't book this trip. This trip can be good be for people who are ok to see it for a couple of hours but note that the Canyon deserves more time!
Weather was some rain, drizzly, sleet, cold, which affected the views. The views that could be seen despite the rolling clouds were amazing nonetheless. The ride was pretty good. The videos could be better, screens were bit old. Food was pretty good. The tour guide, Jacky, was nice and informative. The bus had a leaky hatch from the rain. Overall it was a nice tour.
We planned this trip for months to see the Hoover Dam and South Rim of the Grand Canyon, this was a full day of sightseeing and we decided on SweeTours, Inc., from Las Vegas. To start the day, we were picked up from our hotel at 6:45 in the morning to a check-in starting point. At this location Wally our driver and guide proceeded to give us our continental breakfast of muffins, a bar, banana, juice, water and hot coffee. The bus was clean and comfortable!
Wally was our driver as we left Vegas at 7:30, for our 1st of several stops before getting to the Grand Canyon. Wally was very knowledgeable and a good driver. Our first stop was at the Hoover Dam one of which is a MARVELOUS Monument. We stop for 30 minutes to take pictures. Back on the bus, about an hour and half down the road to a convenience store where we pick up Melissa another driver. We used the restrooms, brought items from store and was given our packed lunch of Deli style sandwiches choices of Turkey, Roast Beef, Ham with condiments and drinks then continue onto Route 66 store where they was filming. When we arrived at the Canyon, Wally advised us of the South Rim of Grand Canyon stating plenty of sites to see and explore from here. Bright Angel trail, Visitor Center Hotels, Lodges, and Gift Shops all here on the South Rim and it takes about 1hour to 45 minutes to walk. What can I say but Awesome, Amazing, Fantastic views, we saw deer crossing the road and various animals. The drive back was smooth; we stopped again at the convenience store to drop off Melissa outstanding driver who got us safely to the Canyon and to Wally our driver the kindest person and tour guide very knowledgeable who care about us. Wally dropped us off at our hotels back in Vegas. Thank You! Excellent Tour!!
This was a great trip for the price we paid. I was a bit disappointed though as I have been to the south rim before but the bus was late in leaving and in my opinion had too many stops on the way there so it meant the sun had started to dip by the time we got to the canyon so not great for photos. The breakfast and lunch were lovely with plenty to eat in the wee boxes they gave us. Our driver was fantastic and gave us loads of information and interesting facts about the Hoover Dam, Route 66 and the Grand Canyon. It was a long day but worth the visit.
