The highlight of the trip was definitely Antelope canyon.
The time for Grand canyon was a little too short.
Plenty of long bus rides around.
Awesome Experience. Stay at Stratosphere Hotel is one in a lifetime chance
The Tour itinerary was well planned, I had a chance to visit antelope canyons on a free day. I avoided initially but after my simple demand on a day before night, Tour guide helped me to get a complete ticket for antelope canyon ticket. I traveled with much Chinese first time and so friendly and all are on time because of perfect time planning so I could visit all planned. Finally, They helped me to purchase a lot of things with much discounts at a Bartlow station. Simply nice package tour.
I travel as a solo traveller and get myself one room. Very safe and enjoyable despite a little long driving hours . Our tour guide Rebecca is very efficient and patient towards all her guests. Majority are Chinese tourists and mostly chinese speaking guests but not a single issue with me. Everything goes smooth and i'm really glad i choose this tour despite some reviews at some tour pages. I definitely will use this tour again for my next visit with family.
General: We had an amazing time during all four days of this trip. This was our first experience with Take tours and I think it is an efficient way to explore places without having to worry about driving.
Tour guide: The tour guide was energetic and systematic, and explained us about the tour in detail on our first day of arrival. Although the majority of the group consisted of Chinese, the tour guide put in lot of effort to explain the details about the places we visited in English.
Hotel: We stayed at Stratosphere for 3 nights and it was comfortable. The rooms are spacious, clean, and easy to access. We were given free unlimited access to the 109th floor of the Stratosphere tower, which indeed was the bonus. The view of strip from the top is amazing during the dusk/ night.
Places visited: We were given a brief introduction about each place we visited in English. The tour guide gave us ample amount of time to explore the places on our own.
- well planned and systematic.
- Tour guide well knowledgeable and speaks good English.
- Excellent hotel stay.
- Ample amount of time at each place of visit.
- Extra charges. (The tour fee covers just the stay and basic travel. For each place you visit, the entry fee, access fee needs to paid. For example, we had to pay an additional fee of 170 $ per person for Antelope, South rim, and IMAX movie; which in fact is more expensive than the initial trip price itself).
I would definitely recommend this your to anyone, specially those who are time bound and want to cover multiple places in short duration of time. However, be prepared to wake up early morning at around 5-6 am everyday, and travel about 500 miles each day.
This was our first trip using the tour and
it was a wonderful experience because it took off load because of planning and driving. We couldn't have covered so many things ourselves. The guide Micheal was great, very sincere, we wish him best luck. Please note that you need pay cash for all your tours luckily it was not a problem.
If the price is an important consideration, I will highly recommend this tour. You can't find a package cheaper than this: $139 for 4 days 3 nights. Just the hotel alone, I've paid $180 (with fee & tax) for staying in Stratosphere for an extra day (Saturday) that I booked myself. However, if you don't speak Chinese, you might find yourself out of the situation a lot of time. You need to be very adaptable and alert...
The pros- price is cheap, and you can avoid driving and planning yourself. The cons- logistic is not very organized. We got different tour guys and had to change bus every day. The first day when we joined the group at Stratosphere Hotel, we had to fight through the crowd among hundred of people to get a room key. This is not very American... And I strongly recommend the company DO NOT open up too many options because it became too complex for the tour guy to handle and too confusing for us to enjoy...
In general, we do have a wonderful time with very little budget.
The tour was planned well. I took a 4 days 3 nights tour. However, I felt the last 2 days were rushed during the tour. We could have been given more time during the tour. During the last day of the travel from Las Vegas to Los Angeles we spent 10 hours and could have been planned better.
