Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades

Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades

This sightseeing tour of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Make the trek east in an air-conditioned, luxury motor coach, passing through the Mojave Desert and the Black Mountains and Grand Wash Cliffs of Arizona on the way.

Arrive at the Grand Canyon National Geographic Visitor Center for lunch and souvenir shopping, then proceed to Grand Canyon National Park for several hours of exploring at the South Rim. Make scenic stops at Bright Angel Lodge, one of the original hotel destinations at the Grand Canyon South Rim, and Mather Point, with the most popular overlook and trails lining the edge of the canyon. Visit the widest and deepest point of the South Rim at over 8,400 feet deep and 21 miles across.

Upgrade to include the most-watched movie in IMAX history, Grand Canyon Discovery and Adventure, and/or a guided 2-hour Jeep tour along the rim, complete with stunning views and an education on the canyon’s history, geology and wildlife. Another option would be to take a breathtaking 25-minute helicopter flight over the South Rim of the canyon (this replaces the visit to Mather Point).

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

Great experience!

Probably the best South Rim experience you can get in one day. The Pink Jeep tour was excellent, if a bit abbreviated no Bright Angel or old fort stops, and the guide Sean was very well-informed and articulate. The bus to and from Las Vegas from Gray Line was excellent and quiet allowing prolonged snoozing both to and from Tusayan. I feel that the Grand Canyon deserves more than a day, but if a day is all you have, this is probably the best option other than the more expensive helicopter tour.

It was cold up there, and we were not prepared for that. But took the pink jeep tour and it was fabulous.

Had a park ranger as tour guide on the jeep, quickly took us to the best picture locations. The bus ride was long but comfortable.

Exceeded our expectations. The driver who was also the guide, was very knowledgeable, very nice, professional. The trip was all day from early morning to late evening but it was a very pleasant experience, one of those few to remember for the rest of the life. I would definitely recommend it. If you go to Las Vegas and never been to the Grand Canyon this trip should be a must.

Views were AWSOME. SUPERED and just UNBELIEVABLE. My purpose was to get to an exact spot at
The South Rim behind the Gift Shop, where my son David had his picture taken in 2011. He just passed
Away last Oct. 2015 from a cancerous brain tumor. He was 53 yrs. young.
With the help of the VIATOR TOUR GUIDE . I was able to have my picture taken at the exact spot,
Where my son Dave had stood 4 yrs. before. And through the magic of Photoshop I now have a photo
Of David and I at the Grand Canyon South Rim.
hopefully the original photo of Dave and the photoshop result is attached
