What people are saying about Glen Canyon Dam Overlook

I had the best experience with Irene as tour guide and Ozzie as the driver they made the trip to antelope canyon and horse shoe bend a memorable one. The bus ride was very comfortable and the other tourists were nice as I travelled alone. Overall the experience was 1000% great! I’d take the Grand Canyon tour next time I come to Vegas through the same tour bus company.

This was an easy and enjoyable experience. The tour guide, Irene, and the driver, Ozzy, were both wonderful!! They were professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
