Just wanted to recommend the tour we went on this week with a company called ’Mojave wave’ through Get Your Guide. We booked them for the Grand canyon & Hoover dam and they were amazing. We got picked up at 5.30 from our hotel and was promised it would ‘miss the crowds’ which was so worth it. The first stop we made was at the Las Vegas sign and a perfect photo opportunity. The tour guides gave us water and we’re very knowledgeable making the trip fun and interesting. We then made another stop further down, a time to use the bathroom and get any more refreshments. We went onto the Grand Canyon which and were literally the first people there - no crowds! The next stop was a place to see the famous Joshua tree and then we stopped further down in Boulder City. The final stop of the trip was at hoover dam where we got off the bus and had a look around. The tour hides Jason and Brian were great. We also got a subway lunch included which was ideal. Definitely recommend these guys!

Louise was very knowledgeable about our trip. Any questions he answered without hesitation. Kept us hydrated all the time and was a willing helper on and off the bus. He also packed some extra little stops for us. An excellent experience and would recommend to friends and family.

I took the tour on May 29, 2022 and it was absolutely AMAZING!!! Pasquale was our Driver and Tour Guide. He was very friendly, helpful and organized. Everyone on the bus were talking about how nice he is and he took great pics of all of us. Definitely made our trip very special.

A well organized operation from pick up to drop off. Our guide, Jaren, was amazing. Funny, very informative, sweet and kind to take so many photos. Jaren shared a ton of interesting facts about the Canyon. My family and I had a wonderful time!

The tour was well organized and our guide Branson loosened up the trip with lots of information and films. At the canyon itself we had 3 hours of free time, which was enough to get a good impression.
