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.

Excellent driver and trip. Very long, but quality buses and drivers really helped with the long drove. Did not like the Jeep tour as it was simply driving us quickly around form one sightseeing turnoff where other cars were parked to another. So fast we couldn't look for elk or other wildlife and had we had access to any other way to get to the rim, we certainly would have done so. I-Max also made my wife sick as she has an issue with heights and with the dropping in and out of the canyon, her vertigo was upset to the point that she had problems in the jeep at the rim too.
