My wife & I had a wonderful time on our Sweet Tour to the Grand Canyon/Hoover Dam. Our guide (Konoa) & driver (Carlos) were outstanding! The trip was fun, informative, interesting, funny & so beautiful. It was our 1st trip to the Canyon & Hoover Dam. We were blown away. We both learned quite a bit too as Konoa was a fountain of interesting facts. A great time. Too, my wife left her hat on the bus and the company (Earl) personally delivered it to our hotel. Big thanks for that extra effort. And thanks to the receptionist (Lucille?). She also went above & beyond making sure my wife got her hat back. We would definitely use Sweet Tour Co again & would recommend them to our friends & family. Thanks for a wonderful time!!

I had a fabulous time on the Comedy on Deck tour of the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. The thing that made it most enjoyable was the tour guide, Andrew and the driver, Bernice. They made the trip so enjoyable and Anthony was very funny and yet organized, knowledgeable about everything along the way and very caring about everyone on the bus. I can't imagine taking this tour with anyone other than Comedy on Deck. Such a clever way to travel.
