The tour bus Driver Wally was great and that's what made the trip bearable in my opinion. it was uncomfortable to try to eat a meal while traveling.

So glad you enjoyed your tour with Wally. He is great and loves his job! The majority of our guests prefer eating on the coach, thus allowing more free time to experience the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Sorry you were uncomfortable.

the Skywalk but disappointed no cameras! was in aw with the canyon. the view is spectacular enjoyed all the look outs. our bus driver was very enjoyable. so good with information
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
We certainly recognize your frustrations with the inability to take personal photos on the Skywalk, however, this policy has been in place since years ago when the Hualapai nation opened the Skywalk. They provide their own photo services for customers, and have always stated the fragility of the glass components would be compromised by dropping items such as cameras and cell phones. On the other hand, so glad you enjoyed the wonder and beauty of the Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam experience. Thanks again for traveling with us.
