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.

Grand Canyon tour

This was my first visit to the Grand Canyon. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and professional. Although the Hoover Dam was closed, he took a route that allowed us to see it at least from the highway. He also took us by a park that had mountain goats and a nice view of Lake Mead. I highly recommend this tour company.

Many thanks for your very nice comments. Certainly glad that you were able to experience the many natural wonders of the southwest to include Grand Canyon West Rim. Please come back and see us soon and hopefully the Hoover Dam will reopen soon for your visit. Be safe, stay healthy and close to your family. Thanks again!

A great day trip to see the Canyon. The west rim is really an amazing place to see. I didn’t realize that you can go so close to the edge and look down to see the canyon. A little scary, it needs your full attention when getting close to the edge.

A must-do!

I highly recommend going to the West rim. I've seen the South and the West now and the West was unique because: 1) it's on an Indian reservation, so different rules/laws/etc. It's free and open to be viewed all-natural, but that also means there are not a lot of safety barriers, so watch your step! 2) The skywalk is simply amazing!! The views from there are breathtaking and so is the look down the glass floor. They actually only have clear glass in the middle of the walk. On either side, it's frosted, so if someone gets scared, it helps to step onto that. Recommend that you don't do Hoover dam and West rim in the same day. We split the days which was great, because it allowed more time to enjoy each. When you visit the West rim, don't lose track of time, and when the tour guide tells you to be back, be there! My husband and I were running late getting back and we were the last ones to board the bus, and that was a long walk of shame down the aisle. Our tour guide was Walter and he was amazing!

A Breathtaking Experience

This tour provided me with an unforgettable experience of one of the seven wonders of the world--including a stop at the Hoover Dam en route. The view was incredible, and taking a walk on the skywalk gave me the impression of actually walking on the canyon while looking above as if I were looking up to the heavens.

We had such a great time and fantastic sites. Walter was our tour guide, driver, and kept us laughing. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Our only complaint is 3 hours is not enough time to visit all 3 stops. We skipped the first stop and went to the views and Sky bridge. Just great and had our photos taken. Went to the last stop which was the best and 360 views! Caught a bus to first stop, a Western village and ate lunch but only 2 girls taking orders and placing food on trays. We were lucky that our timing was good cause once we sat down about another 30 people came in and no way would have got back to our bus if we had waited in that line. Tour should be at least another hour longer for the price you pay! Fun but felt rushed.

My wife and I just loved the fantastic views and really love the sky bridge. We had visited another area over a year ago and it was almost a 12 hour day from pick up to hotel drop off. Only negative thing was we only had 3 hours to visit 3 locations and eat lunch which was a rush. Only 2 woman trying to take food orders and serve with long lines killing time and trying to get back to the bus by 2 PM. Driver Walter was the best, funny, informative, and great driver and guide. Tour wish was another hour longer for the price paid.
