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.

First off the tour bus man Mr. Ozzie was fantastic. He made my husband and I ride to the Grand Canyon wonderful. He talked about everything, he had some jokes told us about things we never knew. The Experience was just amazing. I would definitely ask for him if I go back out there again for that tour. There and back the bus ride was great.

Freddy was excellent and we enjoyed the tour thoroughly. It wouldn’t have been complete without the helicopter and boat rides. My wife were the only ones who chose that part of the tour and Freddy reserved a spot for us in the front of the bus and made us feel VIP!!! We will do it again which is saying something for us!!! Thanks for a great time!!!

Tour was fine- Property Management people were terrible.

From the beginning- the first frustration we had, was our pick up location. We called the day before as they ask you to do and they told us which hotel to go to for the bus to pick us up. However, they did NOT tell us specifically where the bus would pick us up. We were waiting at the hotel door for 20 minutes and no bus ever pulled up. When I called them, they said he was on his way (20 min after the scheduled pick up time). The ONLY reason that we actually found our bus was a hotel employee came outside and told us that the bus pick up was down the sidewalk, on the corner of the building. So when we walked down to the end of the building the bus was waiting for us and the driver proceeded to pick on us the rest of the day about being late. Its a 3 hr bus ride to/from the West Rim- not a bad ride though, the bus driver stops half way for you to get food/stretch/use the restroom so it really didnt seem like 3 hrs. Our driver gave us the best tip when we arrived at the West Rim entrance center though- he told us to go through the Skywalk first and then go back to take pictures. And he was RIGHT! We spent half of our time here, waiting in lines. The people that run the West Rim property do not have a good system in place. You had to wait in line for EVERYTHING! And I dont just mean a 5 min line, I mean like 30min-1hr lines for everything- experiences, food, bathroom, shuttles, etc. The Grand Canyon itself is breath-taking and absolutely beautiful but I would not go back to the West Rim property to see it again.

West rim Grand Canyon experience.

The whole Grand Canyon experience was fabulous. The skywalk restaurant was great with the spectacular view. We feel this tour could be an hour longer ti give people ample time to explore more. The gift shop should have more personnel assisting the guests. Due to the ling line and only 1 person at the register, we almost missed our bus. Driver was very nice but at times very difficult to understand.
