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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This was perhaps, the highlight of my vacation for 2016. The driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant the ride itself was comfortable. The brief viewing of the Hoover Dam has made me promise to come back and take a tour of just the Hoover Dam. But, the most awe-inspiring of the whole day was to take the breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon. It truly defies imagination. Anyone who says there is no God, needs to see the Grand Canyon!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This tour was all that it promised-spent additional 50 to go on the Sprinter with a smaller group-well worth the money. Enoch was very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw three sites and each stay was long enough but not too long. I am usually too cheap to spend anything extra-but the drive from Las Vegas was just a bit too far and I am glad I went on this tour.
