My wife and I took the Zion National and Bryce Canyon Tour on Sept 6. It was a long day - about 14 hours. However, the wonder of Zion and the amazing sights of Bryce made it a day that we will always remember. Can not say enough about Peter our guide. He was a delight and new all the best parts of each park to see. He knew exactly where to take the best pictures! Long Day? Yes. Long remembered, definitely.
Overall this was a great tour. We had the privilege of two tour guides of which one was in training. It appeared that the guide that was in training had a greater extensive knowledge of the history of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park and the states we drove through to get to our destination , than the primary guide. Both guides were very interactive with our group and made sure that we saw as much as possible. It was a long day but well worth it. Our only complaint relates to the tour bus itself. Although it was a Mercedes tour bus (van) it was way too small. Seats were very small ( we’re not large people), no overhead storage or cup holders near the seats. In addition the seat belts cut across our shoulders. All in all it was a good tour and the main complaint was the vehicle- super uncomfortable.
I recently took the small group Tour from Las Vegas to Zion / Bryce Canyon with this tour company.
I have been on a few all day bus tours from Las Vegas with other companies. I must say that this tour was the best for several reasons. Zion / Bryce Canyon were spectacular and the Tour gave us a good sampling of both Parks, stopping at the key points of interest. We also had the right amount of stops on the way there and back for bathroom breaks, stretching your legs and gift shops. The tour company also provides the little things necessary for a long road trip like plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, etc.
However the main reason was our guide, Phillip. Although there are a lot of miles between Las Vegas and the Parks with a lot of stops, Phillip never made us feel that we were in a hurry or behind schedule. Phillip also seemed to genuinely care that everyone got the most out of the Tour at every stop. Folks, this is exactly what you want in a Tour Guide. After all, IT IS YOUR VACATION! Ask for Phillip.
