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.

I feel since we are still dealing with the pandemic You should offer lunch by bringing us to a different are than the only one they have by the canyon, or let us carry or buy food before going there because what my family and I experienced on Jan 2/2021 was horrible. We couldn’t explore the Grand Canyon bc we had to wait 2 hrs in a line that never end and plus we couldn’t eat anything after waiting those 2 hrs. You should also make clear to irresponsible passenger to make sure they come on time and not make other passages waiting for them. I found that very inconsiderate an rude.

TAKE....THIS....TOUR!!!!!
jimmynbrandy0110

TAKE THIS TOUR - do not think about it any longer. Just do it. NOW!!!! This was my very 1st time seeing the Grand Canyon. The experience could not have been any more amazing. Bus 251 picked me up in front of my hotel (MGM) at 7:45 a.m. The driver / tour guide's name was Juan and he added so much to the experience. He was witty and so courteous. He stopped about 45 mins into the drive to the canyon at a super clean convenience store that had really nice and sanitized restrooms. There was a Subway restaurant inside too so if you were really hungry, you could get something other than just snacks. The rest of the drive is just absolutely breathtaking. And the minute you see that canyon for the first time, there are just no words that can do it justice. Juan was very clear with his instructions on where and when to be back so there was no confusion. If this is your first time here like it was for me, I cannot emphasize or stress this enough - DO IT ALL!!!! Do the tour, the skywalk bridge and the helicopter flight. See the grand canyon in a way that not many people can say they have - by flying directly over it, thru it directly over the Colorado River and then landing at the bottom at the steps of the Colorado River and see the canyon from the ground up. You will never forget a single second of it I promise you! Our pilots name was Charles and he was super cool to chat with. He took photos of us and made sure we got the maximum out of our time at the bottom of the canyon. The ONLY negative thing I have to say about this tour was due to the helicopter flight I booked. The reason this is a negative is because my flight was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and we had to be back to the bus at 3:15 p.m. so it was smack dab in the middle of our time at the canyon. The flight ended up being delayed due to a mix up with 2 of the other passengers so our flight didn't actually take off til 2:00 p.m. and was about 45 mins from start to finish. By the time I got back to the area to pick up the shuttle to head back to Eagle Point and Guano Point lookouts, there wasn't enough time to do so. Eagle Point is where the skywalk bridge is but Guano point is by far the more beautiful viewing area so after you have done the skywalk, make sure you take the shuttle to Guano Point. It's just a 3-4 min shuttle ride further. I literally only had time to take a few photos and didn't get to spend any time at Guano Point because of the time of the helicopter portion so my advice to you is to book the earliest helicopter flight so that way when you get back, you will have a few hours of uninterrupted viewing time at both Eagle and Guano Point. Back to our driver Juan, he knew about the flight delay and granted me and the other 2 helicopter passengers an extra 15 mins and told us to be back at 3:30 p.m. instead of 3:15 so we could go back to Guano Point but sadly, the shuttles were running slow and didn't give us enough time to go back. I can't say I am disappointed because I got to see the most beautiful sights both from the ground and from the air, but the greedy part of me wished I had more time there so that's why I am passing on this information to anyone who has never done this tour before. I am deathly afraid of heights. I won't even get on my roof to put Christmas lights on. But no part of this experience freaked me out when it came to standing right next to the edge or walking across that skywalk bridge. You're too caught up in the beauty of what is in front of you to even think about the heights issue. Thank you, thank you, thank you for an experience of a lifetime!

No good, where is my credit?

We had a not so good experience and I demand my money back. We had to wait to long for people to get in before going to the Grand Canyon and the same on the way back. We loose about 2 1/2 waiting for a meal that never came. We were starving and we did not had a good experience. The chofer was nice and understood the situation but we paid a lot money for our trip with meal include and it didn’t happen.
