Excellent day trip to Bryce Canyon. It was a very long day but was made much more enjoyable by our guide Greg who ensured there were plenty of stops on the way and that we got the best out of our time at Bryce Canyon. Lunch (wraps, fruit, cookies, chips etc) and breakfast (cinnamon rolls) were provided and were great... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed Bryce Canyon - it's one of my favorite National Parks! Greg is a terrific guide, very knowledgable about the area. Having lunch and a snack included is definitely a perk! Thanks for joining us on tour and for the great review. We appreciate your choosing DETOURS! More

We had a great time on the trip to the Hoover Dam a couple days ago. The bus was extremely comfortable and neat, and our tour guide James Phelps is truly a one of a kind character. Incredibly kind, thoughtful, caring, and knowledgeable. He knew everything there was to know about Las Vegas, the surrounding areas, and NV. He knew... More

Nice van, great guide (James) on this half-day tour. Got the tour of the dam, the generating room, and the Pat Tillman bridge. Plenty of stops and time for pics, etc.

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I was extremely happy that I did it with Detours. The weather on the day we chose was not great (cloudy mainly) but our guide Mark really made the difference in this day trip from Vegas. He was very professional, attentive and knowledgeable, a 5-Star tour guide! In addition to the... More

Exceeded our expectations. Absolutely worth our time and money. We were a small group of two couples. We were picked up at our hotel at the stated time in a newer model Lincoln Navigator. It was a very comfortable, well-organized 13 hour trip. It included a pre-ordered lunch of various choices (meat/ vegetarian) and unlimited bottled water. There were comfort... More

Wonderful trip with Detours Nevada. We did the Eldorado Gold Mine tour and added on the Hoover Dam Half Day tour. I would highly recommend this tour agency for knowledge of the guide and their willingness and ability to accommodate private tours to the trip you want to experience. James Phelps was our tour guide and would request him to... More

If the Grand Canyon is on your bucket list then make sure you take the South Rim Tour and Helicopter ride with Detours. The Grand Canyon cannot really be appreciated if you don't see it from the air! Our guide James made the trip an amazing experience. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Myself and my wife went on this 'combi' tour offered by Detours (booked through Virgin Holidays Concierge) in December 2016. We wanted something with a helicopter trip in, but my wife didn't want to commit to a full helicopter ride, so this seemed perfect. Plus the boat part of it sounded interesting too. So what we got was: - Coach... More

Our driver, Pamela has been in Vegas for 30 years.
