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 famous Hoover Dam and 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.

Awesome Views, Well Worth the Trip
Janet_W

The trip was well run. Due to the Coronavirus, some options were limited and this didn't detract from the trip. The scenery awesome, social distancing guidelines were in place. Time Management is key to enjoying each viewing stop, lunch and time to browse in the gift shop. Also, as the Hualapai Indian nation host the Skywalk West site, they are, as everyone else, working to curb the spread of COVID-19 virus. So keep in mind if you are hoping for a unobstructed grand canyon window seat at the Skywalk restaurant it will take a bit longer. But well worth it.

Danny Ho was a great driver and guide. Kept the group entertained and was full of information. He waited extra 20 min. until a couple returned late, while keeping the rest of us relaxed.

Freddy the driver was very good helping me with my walker and making sure that everyone was doing great 👍. The helicopter 🚁 ride awesome 👌! The west tour of the grand canyon fantastic! But my ticket said a boat tour and that was not included yesterday 🙃 and I paid for that tour that was included. We did the walk through and bought the pictures 📷.

Freddy was a great guide!! Gave great tips to get the most out of your tour. I would recommend the West Rim as it is owned by native Americans and the the North and South Rim are National Parks. Would also recommend the helicopter tour because you see so much more of the Canyon.

Worst experience of my life!!!!! First of all they promised a huge bus with on board bathroom and TVs on every seat. When we went downstairs to meet the tour guide. They sent us the smallest van in the lot and it didn’t have a bathroom or TVs didn’t even have ac. The bus was completely packed (elbows touching packed). I have diabetes and I am asthmatic. So I couldn’t sit there for 4 hours without a restroom , and people were coughing two rows ahead of me!!! I couldn’t do it!!! I got off the bus because I was already fed up and now they are telling I can’t even get my refund... I feel lied to and taken advantage of. Never book with the Viator, greyline tours... Worst experience I had here in Vegas.
