They were suppose to pick us up at Treasure Island but they didn't instead they told us to take a taxi to Circus Circus Hotel on the Strip. We paid $10 for the taxi. They said that they were to pay back the $10 but they did not do it. We almost lost our trip to Grand Canyon and our money $148 for the tour. When we came back from the tour at 11pm they want to leave us at Excalibur Hotel too far from Treasure Island Hotel. So we almost have to take another taxi or walk to Treasure Island at 11pm. At the end they decided to leave us at Treasure Island together with another 10 persons. The experience was horrible. TERRIBLE.

"Hoover Dam Express Tour"

We loved our express tour. Jonathan, our driver/guide called to see if he could pick us up a little early and we sat up front in the motor coach where we thoroughly enjoyed his company. He was funny and informative! We chose the express tour so it would take less of our day and it was just enough. When we returned, he dropped everyone off at their hotels instead of the two stops we all got on and it was a nice way to see a little more of Vegas off the strip. Next trip, maybe we'll book the Grand Canyon tour and hope we get Jonathan again!

"This company dropped the ball but our driver picked it up..."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

This rating isn't really for the company because truthfully they dropped the ball. After following instructions once I purchased my groupon then calling to reserve my tour which was the Early Bird South Rim tour I was told I'd be receiving an additional email with pickup instructions from the nearest hotel since they did not pickup at my hotel. Well I never received that email & I called several times & did not get an answer. I even sent an email & STILL....have yet to receive a response. I looked online to try & find the pickup times for the hotel (Golden Nugget) & I read 6am somewhere. But my plan was to get there at 530 just in case. Well 5am came & the driver called saying he was waiting for my mom & I. We explained we never got the exact time of pickup but we were ready & have a car & are willing to meet him ANYWHERE to make sure we got on the bus. Well there was no need for that because our bus driver Dirk was so awesome. Not only did he call but he made provisions to pick us up at a safe location directly across from our hotel. He kept us calm & told us not to worry he'll make sure we get on the bus. Literally within 15 minutes he was there. Dirk was great too! Very knowledgeable friendly & fair. This tour company also screwed us over & put us on the wrong bus. We were expecting to make a few stops along the way to the grand canyon but the bus was an "express". However our driver Dirk was able to fit in a stop on Route66 (which we were really looking forward to) so this really made the day! He was patient. He helped with pictures AND still managed to get us back to Vegas by 7pm! So...this rating is for DIRK! NOT GC Destinations. You guys really need to do better. And I STILL never got an apology for their screw up! What if Dirk wasn't as kind & simply decided to pull off without calling me? What if he wasn't as kind to figure out a way to pick us up near our hotel? We would have lost out on the experience & our money! Thanks so much Dirk! You made this experience incredible with your kindness & hospitality. We truly appreciate YOU!

Our tour driver and guide, Tricia Nelson, made our day. She was exceptionally professional, pleasant and funny. She was knowledgeable about the whole trip. She quizzed us with trivia and interacted when ever she could. My only regret on the trip is that I did not take the longer tour with this line. Next time the South Rim
