This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with reclining seats and large windows. Then make the trek east, passing through Joshua Tree forests and the Mojave Desert, and past the beautiful Lake Mead to the Grand Canyon.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy hours of self-guided exploring at the West Rim. Hike to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in tour price). There are many options and a variety of exciting possibilities.

There are also two upgrades to consider during this time frame. First, consider adding a thrilling walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Secondly, there's a stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Additionally, enjoy a pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations.

Lack of correct information!

The beauty of the canyon was unmatched. But the tour drivers information was unclear to say the least. First, our driver Lala was 15 min late for pickup. Then as we started driving, she makes 2 announcements: The first stop to a shell gas station for snacks and stretching. Then the second for temperature checks and that if anyone has one it will make us all return back! We were shocked that no one told us. We questioned why couldn’t they check us before coming onto the bus instead of driving 2 hrs to do so and called the office to question this. Come to find out, it was a Grand Canyon requirement and that they would be the ones doing it, not the tour bus. Don’t know why Lala didn’t clarify this? She also mentioned that we all needed to get back by 245pm onto the bus and that if not, there is a service we can use to drive us back on our own for $500. But Lala failed to mention that policy dictated we couldn’t leave anyone behind and had to wait no matter how long it took! So sure enough all but two people got back on time. And instead of us leaving, we were all stuck waiting! Lala said the longest she had to wait was 3 hours. Omg! People were pissed! We had to have the park search for them and after an hour they finally got back. Of course, the group booed them and yelled at them for such disrespect of all of our time. We wanted our money back since other personal reservations and plans were now delayed but the office wouldn’t budge. So it was definitely a mixed feelings trip!

Great one day trip for the money. Bus ride a little uncomfortable but worth it. Grand Camyon is spectacular! Lunch is included and was surprisingly good. Skywalk not worth the money but you'll get a nice picture if you don't want to take your own.

Loved seeing the Canyon. However because we chose to do the helicopter ride into the Canyon we only had time to see Eagle Point. I was told we would have a helicopter ride, lunch, viewing of Eagle Point, Sky Walk, and Guano Point viewing. After the helicopter ride we literally had to to eat our lunch quickly and only had time visit Eagle Point. We did get to do the SkyWalk but didn’t have time to do photos because of the the line.
