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.

Great experiece, Dirk made it special. We covered everything we wanted to see and more. Very well organized. My only recommendations, was the bus seats. They were very old and not convenient for this kind of all day tour. It didn’t have cup holders or a seat pockets. Other than that everything else was excellent.
Breathtaking scenery and excellent ride.

Walter our 'tour guide and transportation directory, was great. Kept us informed, relaxed and laughing. Good boxed lunch and would recommend to all.

Had a great time viewing the canyon and doing the skywalk. Jackie was a great driver and tour guide along the road.
Worth the book!
, May 2021
The history of the area provided by the tour guide during the ride was exceptional. The views were amazing. And the whole operation ran very smoothly. My only complaint was the quality of the bus used for transportation. The seats were comfortable, but there were no cup holders/food trays/seat pockets which made the provided breakfast/drinks hard to eat. Had to hold everything on lap which isn't a big deal but considering the duration of the ride, a little upgrade in convenience would go a long way.

It was an amazing time. Beautiful experience. Very good structured from beginning to end. The driver wonderful and friendly

Excellent tour. Wally was a really good tour guide. Kept everyone on time but free to explore and take pictures. Bus was clean. Lunch was good. Breakfast was very high carbs.
