Grand Canyon is more than grand. We got collected from our hotel by our tour leader Mike, he was on time and super organized. We had advised a couple of days prior that our hotel was not going to hold our luggage and they were extremely accommodating. Mikes knowledge of the area and passion for his work definitely made the difference between being ferried to the Grand Canyon and being led into the amazingly beautiful national park. We were advised throughout the day what the schedule looked like, Mike's directions were always clear and he was happy to answer all the questions that were asked of him. We made it to the Canyon via the Hoover dam and Mike was good enough to highlight different trail walks for different levels of skill. The trails he recommended were bang on for ability- let's face it, I'm not a great hiker but my mate is. I took the easy road with stunning views and she attempted some of the more strenuous stuff. Mike made great suggestions for the sunset and it was breathtaking. As me and my friend were camping we got dropped at the park cafeteria for dinner while Mike dropped the others in town, we were then collected and taken to the campsite. Lucky for us he had set up our tents already - we were instructed on how to use and inflate the sleeping mats and sleeping bags were distributed. We had some campfire popcorn before turning in. The sleeping bags were something else let me tell ya. It was like a warm hug!¬†
In the morning we were provided with fruit, croissant and juice for breakfast and we packed down the campsite - Mike was super at explaining how to dismantle everything. We spent half a day hiking around the canyon then headed back to Vegas.¬†
Highlights: Mike was brilliant! The time in the Canyon was just enough.
The hiking trails can be done by anyone who can walk a straight line Wildlife everywhere
it's far. There is absolutely nothing that the company can do about
distance and they do try to break up the drive, however; it's far. Come prepared with water and snacks.
Overall: I can't recommend this highly enough. It was the best all round option.
If you're looking at a one day tour to the Canyon you are mad. Spend a couple of extra bucks and get the best experience.
While staying in Las Vegas we went for the 2 day tour to the Grand Canyon our guide John was amazing he give us lots of information while on our tour and was super fun- fantastic tour giving opportunity for a sunrise and sunset at the Grand Canyon as well as lots of hiking if you wish.
Our trip to the Grand Canyon was exactly what I had wanted it to be. As we four weren't interested in hiking, John dropped us off each day at the Bright Angel Lodge where we really enjoyed time to ourselves to look around all the historic buildings in the village, which also gave us different views of the canyon. We sat and people watched, soaked up the atmosphere, watched people feed the squirrels when John had warned us all about keeping our distance from them, took photos, ate icecream. John then picked us up at the end of our given time. Watching the sun set over the canyon was magical. Getting to travel on the old Route 66, to stop at Selegman, with all it's Americana was a delight. Do as we did, take the tour so you can get out to the Canyon, you don't have to hike, enjoy the village instead, there is a lot to see there. All his information as we travelled was excellent, couldn't be more helpful, very happy with him as a guide.
This was a great trip. We drove from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, stayed the night. It was well organised. Jon our tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area we travelled through and very helpful to all the people on the tour, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him.The Grand Canyon is so worth seeing and we had a good amount of time there. There was a choice of camping or staying in a hotel and the hotel we stayed in was nice, clean and the staff were friendly. The town Tusayon was nice as well. I would highly recommend this trip if you want to have a good look at the Canyon and you don't have a lot of time.
I recently returned from my first ever trip to Las Vegas ‚ô†ÔłŹ which included this Grand Canyon Overnight tour ..our group of 8 friends returned for their 2nd tours and our guide Rachel, who literally, makes this tour what it is... great company and so passionate , professional and Knowledgeable... . en route to and from the Grand Canyon, our tour included the old Route 66 mining towns of El Dorado with an authentic mine tour that was absolutely fascinating ...and Oatman Ghost town with rich history and wild burros to boot. Lunch was at an authentic saloon complete with its own Hollywood royalty connections...arrival to the Grand Canyon National Park was truly breathtaking in and of itself. Rachel packed in an amazing overnight package to capture Sunset on the rim, Camping for some of the group and hotel accommodations for others. We returned to the rim to capture sunrise and then hikes along and into the Canyon!!!! Truly truly sights to be had. These East coast girls loved capturing the history and beauty of this rich West coast gifts...
This year eight of us had a great time touring with Rachel. She again manage to put together an exciting two day tour which included Sunrise and Sunset over the Grand Canyon, The mines in El Dorado and spending time with the donkeys in Oatman. Rachel is knowledgeable and well organized. I would recommend Rachel and her company to everyone.
This is the second tour we have taken with Rachel from Bindlestiff and we are already planning our third. This year, our group of 8 did an overnight tenting/ hotel tour of the Grand Canyon. Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. She always plans several different scenarios that will suit everyone within your group and contingencies for circumstances such as rain.
We left from Las Vegas and on the way stopped at two different mining towns. El Dorado where we enjoyed a guided tour of a no longer functioning mine and the surrounding area; then quirky Oatman, a ghost town where we had fun exploring, amazed at the wild burros roaming throughout and had lunch at a historic inn.
At the Grand Canyon we were able to experience both sunrise and sunset. It was a fantastic experience. Some of our group chose to do a short hike down into the Canyon with Rachel while others walked on a path along the rim. As with all of our stops, you never feel rushed and have plenty of time experience everything and to take all the pictures you might want. On way back to Vegas we made one more stop along Rt. 66 in Seligman, Arizona the inspiration for the movie.
If you are planning on doing any sight seeing, Rachel and Bindlestiff Tours is a must. The van is extremely comfortable and everything for your tour will been well thought out in advance. Tours with Rachel are amazing!
