This Grand Canyon West Ultimate Tour is the most fun, informative, safest, and easiest way to visit the Grand Canyon from Vegas.
Leave the glitz of Las Vegas behind and spend a day discovering the beauty of the Grand Canyon West Rim. This full-day tour kicks off with pick-up from your hotel (or one very close by), where you board an air-conditioned luxury bus. You'll then get whisked off to breakfast with a freshly cooked, made-to-order hot meal at a local restaurant so that you are fully energised for the rest of the day.
With full bellies, the journey to the Grand Canyon commences. Break up the trip and stretch your legs with a once-in-a-lifetime photo stop at the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. Built during the Great Depression and now roughly 90 years old, this modern marvel is a testament to human imagination and engineering, even in the face of great adversity. This is one of the only tours from Vegas that includes this opportunity.
You'll get to stretch your legs again at Joshua Tree Forest and the Black Mountains, where your comedian-turned-tour guide will share fun (and hopefully, funny) facts and history about the natural splendour that surrounds you.
Grand Canyon West
Finally, you'll arrive at Grand Canyon West, where you'll be hosted by the Hualapai Indians. They will share customary Hualapai traditions, all while adorned in authentic tribal attire and eager to share their culture’s history and performances for your enrichment.
At the Canyon, you will have 3 hrs 30 mins to explore all the various attractions that are available. This will give you more than enough time to experience everything the canyon has to offer, plus of course, leave some time at the end for a little bit of shopping.
Refuel with a delicious lunch with an even better view over the canyon at Skyview Restaurant. It could quite possibly be the most scenic meal you have ever had! Your tour also includes convenient skip-the-line access for lunch, which is a very, very valuable inclusion on busy days as the regular line at this restaurant can sometimes have an hour wait.
Enjoy plenty of time at Guano Point. From here, some of the best views of the canyon can be experienced. For the adventurous (and this is totally optional), you may choose to embark upon an upward climb to the peak of Guano Point, where you'll have an almost 360-degree view of the canyon, witnessing the fascinating views of the Colorado River below, and the naturally painted colours of the Grand Canyon walls from every direction. Be sure to take a moment to appreciate the silence and solitude exclusive to this remarkable area. Here, nature’s stillness and beauty are unparalleled. You may also take a leisurely stroll around Guano Point to experience incredible views all around.
The tour also visits Eagle Point, where you have the option of adding on the SkyWalk, 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. This amazing lookout area grants a near-360 degree view of the Canyon’s Western Rim over a glass-framed cantilever style bridge for an optimal observation experience. Its horseshoe-shaped frame floats over the canyon, allowing visitors to feel like they are walking on air. You can see clear down to the canyon floor from the Skywalk, so it is a truly unique view and is a very popular attraction at the Grand Canyon.
On your drive back to Vegas, the guide will give you some time to relax and maybe take a short nap, and then as you arrive back to Vegas, you will receive tips and tricks on how to enhance your vacation from your Comedian Guide who knows Sin City like the back of their hand!
