Please note my rating is on the service and not the destination. My wife and I took the West Rim tour last Thursday, June 7, with Aldon (sp?). I will say he was knowledgeable but our issue was his delving into political dissertations based on his views. It started at Hoover Dam, where he began to debunk climate change based on his points on the river and dams only. He made sure to mention his meteorological days. Later, he went on about the money wasted on the saving of condors. The worst was on the way home where he went on ad nauseum about the wastefulness, in his opinion, of renewable resources as power. I thought his injecting personal political beliefs was inappropriate and uncalled for. My wife mentioned that his goings on at the end took away some of the enjoyment of the day. Also, in his determination to speak to one young woman in the group incessantly at the Ranch, he couldn't take the time to answer a simple question about our return trip. This same talking on the bus caused him to miss our exit and he had to backtrack. We loved the views, but can't credit him for that. I just spoke to a friend heading to Vegas next week and my son and friends are visiting in the fall. I have advised them to try Pink Jeep or any other alternative when they take the trip. I took the tour for the views and history and did not appreciate his political interjections.

I just completed a full day tour with Detours Nevada. Everything went exceedingly well. The Guide for the trip was Tommy Di. He arrived precisely on time. The van was very clean. He offered snacks and water.
His command of the information regarding this trip was nothing less than encyclopedic. He kept it interesting and fun.
I would highly recommend your company and especially Tommy. It would be a very worthwhile experience.
