This sightseeing tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Enjoy a light morning snack while making the drive east, passing through the Mojave Desert and the Black Mountains and Grand Wash Cliffs of Arizona along the way.

Enjoy several hours exploring at the West Rim, with short hikes to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Also visit the Hualapai Ranch for a delicious barbeque lunch.

You can upgrade your tour to include either a helicopter flight or admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Helicopter Option: Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on a private bluff just above the canyon floor. Walk around and 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.

Skywalk Option: Take a walk on the world famous glass bridge that overlooks the magnificent Colorado River 4,000 feet below you. This jaw-dropping perspective will help you gain a better appreciation of the canyon's staggering dimensions.

This day tour also includes a complimentary photo stop at Hoover Dam, either before or after visiting the Grand Canyon.

Drive through lonely expanses of the Mojave Desert and admire forests of distinctive Joshua trees. As you journey amid the Black Mountains and Grand Wash Cliffs of Arizona, the West Rim of the Grand Canyon appears before you in all its glory. This less-visited area belonging to the Hualapai American Indian tribe offers some of the most rugged, dramatic views of the canyon.
Stop At:  
Colorado River
Upgrade your Grand Canyon experience and take your seat on a 6-passenger EC-130 helicopter for a sensational 10-minute descent into the Grand Canyon. During your 40 minutes on the canyon floor, get an up-close view of the canyon's many layers and colors. Afterward, reboard your helicopter for more magnificent vistas of the canyon on your way back up to the West Rim.
Duration: 30 minutes

Grand Canyon West
Spend 4 hours exploring the West Rim at your leisure. Take short hikes to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to capture amazing photos of the incredibly intricate and colorful rock formations of the Grand Canyon.

This jaw-dropping perspective will help you gain a better appreciation of the canyon's staggering dimensions.

Hal, a friendly professional knowledgable & thoughtful driver & guide. Cold water all day local tips & stops & clear instruction given. Nothing was a problem. He went out of his way to show us a great time. Hoover Dam stop was cool. Extra stop for the sheep unexpected but fascinating. Many thanks for a great day out. Cheers Helen from NZ

GREAT TRIP TO GRAND CANYON WEST
Tom R
, Oct 2018
The trip to Grand canyon West was better than I thought. I had been to the canyon by Helicopter last time I was in Vegas. That was really awesome. but I really got an up close and personal this time. We were at the Canyon for a longer time, and we were able to really get the feel for how expansive the grand Canyon actually is. The small group was the way to go, as we all got along and there were no disagreements on the time schedule. We all did our own thing, and were never rushed. It is a long day, so be prepared. it was so worth it. It was certainly a trip we will remember for the rest of our lives. Greg our guild was a book of info, and was willing to share everything he could. Also, he was a good driver, with a great personality. All in all I highly recommend this trip. It was AMAZING... !!! Thank you Greg, for a Wonderful and memorable trip.
