Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Receive an early-morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and then travel through the desert to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, admiring the scenery of 900-year old Joshua Trees while en route.

When you arrive at the West Rim, receive an included hop-on, hop-of sightseeing bus ticket which allows you to explore the canyon’s amazing scenery at your own pace. Spend the next three hours exploring however you like.

The bus will travel first to Eagle Point, home of a U-shaped glass “Skywalk” that extends out over the canyon rim. Those visitors who purchase the Skywalk package will have access to this incredible overlook dropping 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor below. Eagle Point is also the site of a Native American village where you can visit tribal homes, observe traditional Indian dances in the amphitheater.

Hop back on your bus and head to Guano Point, another overlook boasting striking views over the Colorado River and canyon below. Take a hike on the trail following the canyon edge, or head to a nearby eatery to enjoy a meal (own expense). Your bus will also make a stop at the Hualapai Cowboy Ranch, allowing guests to learn more about typical activities of the American West.

For those visitors that decide to add on the helicopter flight (optional upgrade), you’ll soar like a bird over the canyon rim, descending down to an overlook at 3,200 feet (975 meters) for an epic view of the scenery just above the Colorado River. At the end of your Grand Canyon exploration, receive a ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.

Please note: Because of time constraints, the Skywalk and helicopter options cannot be booked together. The helicopter ride lasts approximately 40 minutes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helped everyone to feel comfortable. He gave clear instructions and did his part to make sure we all stayed safe. The Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon need no review - the magnificence of both speak for themselves.

Driver/guide was very knowledgable, polite and helpful. Minimal wait times for shuttles. Almost 1/2 hour wait for the skywalk. Unfortunately, A/C was not working and half way to the canyon, we were told a new bus was coming and we had to wait 1 1/2 hours for the new bus. While the air worked on the new bus, it was so loud, it was difficult to hear the guide. Also impacted our time at the canyon (only 2 3/4 hours). Good pick-up and drop off. Asked for gluten free. Could only eat banana and oj for breakfast (also given muffin and crackers). Lunch was supposed to be a salad (instead of sandwich) with turkey but only had a small portion of shredded cheese. Included a cereal bar. So if you are gluten free, bring your own food.

Great experience. The bus's AC stopped working on the way to our destination, so we had to wait an HR or so for a new bus. Other than that I enjoyed myself.
