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.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Grand Canyon West
Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and head to the Grand Canyon's west rim - home to the world-famous Skywalk. After a relaxing bus ride through the 900 year old Joshua Tree forest, you will arrive at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Once here, you will receive a ticket for lunch and your shuttle ticket which will allow you to move about the canyon very easily. You will have approximately three (3) hours to explore here on your own.
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At:  
Grand Canyon Skywalk
Your first stop will be Eagle Point. Here, you can step out onto the glass skywalk, a U-shaped glass deck that extends 70 feet beyond the rim of the Canyon giving you a full view of the 4,000 foot drop to the Colorado River below. The views from here are nothing short of spectacular and be sure to spot the eagle in the facing rock. Also at Eagle Point is a Native American Village which displays many tribal homes and depicts the lifestyle of the local natives and you can watch cultural activities such as performances by Indian dances in the amphitheater. This is an optional upgrade that you can select upon checkout.

Another great add-on is the Discovery Helicopter Tour where you will descend and land 3,200 feet below the rim viewing the breathtaking scenery from the bottom just above the Colorado River.

Wonderful driver, very informative. Pointed out areas of interest along the way. Grand Canyon is amazing. This is a must see. Nice native area displaying different types of homes and sweat lodges. Wasn’t expecting much with lunch but it was a great fresh deli sandwich not the prepackaged junk at a gas station.

Bucket List tour

Hiring Viator and signing up for the Grand Canyon West Rim Tour was the perfect choice for us. We were conveniently shuttled from our hotel. Our coach driver, Lorena, was friendly and knowledgeable. The grandeur of the Grand Canyon and it's breathtaking views, along the touristic and cultural education added more than enough value to the tour. Despite several C-19 limitations, our trip was plentiful! We can check off our bucket list, gained great memories and even better pictures! Come and see for yourself!

So glad you had a great time with Lorena at the Grand Canyon West Rim. It is such a beautiful place to experience and I am thrilled you were able to create so many memories during your tour. Our entire Sweetours team works very hard to provide a wonderful adventure to the Grand Canyon and I am glad we hit a home run with you on this trip. Please stay safe, healthy and close to your family. Come back and see us soon.
