Roberto was a great guide. Just wish we had more time at Zion. Initially we were to get back to Vegas between 7 and 8. Arrived at 3:30 so we could have spent more time at the park that morning.. Also might have been able to fly home that night instead of spending money for another night's hotel stay. Tour itself was wonderful-especially the Lake Powell boat ride.
I feel that we got from this tour that I anticipated and then some. It was well organized and got everything one could expect in the timeframe allowed. It gave me an appreciation for the overall geography and landscape for this part of the country. Roberto was an excellent guide. His knowledge and personality were appreciated. The rooms were totally acceptable. Completely satisfied.
No worries. No further tickets purchased for each place. No further reservations needed. Nothing for you will be "sold out" or "booked." This ticket is the one! This life-giving tour with Manuel and Irene is pure pleasure and treasure seeing! You don't have to get lost, confused, or spend hours making sure your trip will be seamless. They do it all for you. You get two breakfasts and two nights hotel included. You are taken care of by two people who LOVE and CARE for you. This is not "work" for them; their hearts are of genuine service! I loved hearing Manuel, from Italy (such a Love!), teach us about what we were seeing. He knew exactly when and what to say and made me laugh. He also gave us "peace out" and "just view" (or nap) drive time. Irene is a safe driver and nurtures what you need. We enjoyed getting to know her. I could see the loving mother in her. Both of them had the plan dialed in; they let us know when to be somewhere and then we were off to our next adventure. ALL of it was INCREDIBLE: seeing Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion. Bonus to me, the boat trip on Lake Powell had us planning our next family trip. Just incredible. There are thousands of places to see in the world and while we wish we could spend a week at each, it's not realistic with work and life responsibilities. This is the perfect trip for someone, couples, or family to get to experience a portion of ALL these AMAZING places in just 3 days. We will never forget this trip. We are thankful and are sharing our pictures already with our friends and family. We are now Facebook friends with another beautiful couple that we met on this trip (they, Italians, were on their honeymoon!) Another bonus, the second hotel they gave us, was brand new (which is always delightful) and it has an all-you-need gym, that I did sweat and smile before we left for the day's adventures at 9:00 am. Furthermore, our ride was a 28 foot long, 10 foot tall Mercedes clean van. All in all, ALL STAR Trip!
Excellent tour from Las Vegas late in the season in late October. Three things made this tour especially enjoyable: 1 Small group of only 8 participants on a mini-bus. 2 Excellent guide Manuel and safe bus driver Ricardo, and 3 Perfect sunny weather every day. Itinerary was well planned and every park visited was unique. Time spent at each location was adequate. At the Grand Canyon we were able to view the beauty from two spots on the rim. At Bryce Canyon we hiked to the bottom of a narrow canyon. At Zion we drove through a canyon the entire east to west width of the park and stopped for a delightful hike to a waterfall. I thought Lake Powell would be a routine boat ride, but the passage through narrow Antelope Canyon was spectacular. First night accommodation at the Page Clarion Inn was excellent in all ways. The second night at Kanab Days Inn was a couple notches lower that is my only complaint about the tour. I appreciated not needing to drive and was able to enjoy the scenery along the way.
We highly recommend this tour. Well organized, LOTS of sightseeing and learning along the way. Saya was an amazing tour guide.
This is a must do tour. All three canyons are amazing and so different. We had a great tour guide Manual and a very good driver Glen.Our stops were well timed. We had plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. Plenty of rest stops, good hotels , and reasonably priced food stops.
We want to give this trip a five star rating. We covered a lot of miles in those three days and the parks are sites are breathtaking. We felt very safe with our driver, Jose, and enjoyed our Tour guide, Manuel, who was informative and humorous. We would travel with Cool Destinations again.
We my husband as well as my mother and his all give a 5 star for this tour! The bus and accommodations were comfortable and the parks absolutely worth the visit. Our driver, Robert, safely and comfortably drove us and Manual, our guide, was informative and entertaining. The bus stops were spaced just right and the length of time to visit at each stop was perfect. My husband and I will return to do some hiking and camping. The tour was great first experience and perfect for our mothers.
This was our first time visitng the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Park. I can't think of a better way to see these beutiful and amazing places. It was wonderful to be on a tour that took care of everything. We were taken to the best views and given great information during the drive and at each destination. Our tour guide, Ingrid, knew so much about the area, as well as how to best meet our needs along the way. Great value for so very much!
