Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This flexible West Rim coach tour offers optional activities to enhance your experience, plus see Hoover Dam.
This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with restrooms, reclining seats, video monitors and large windows. Then make the 3-hour trek east, passing through Joshua tree forests and the Mojave Desert, and past the famous Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead to the Grand Canyon. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy three hours of exploring at the West Rim. Hike to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in tour price). There are many options and a variety of exciting possibilities. There are also two upgrades to consider during this time frame. First, consider adding a thrilling walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Secondly, there's a stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor. Walk around, 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. Additionally, enjoy a pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations. This day tour also includes a complimentary photo stop at Hoover Dam, either before or after visiting the Grand Canyon. Travel time between Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is approximately three hours each way.
We really enjoyed this tour. Transfers from various hotels around Vegas to a central meeting point was well organised and efficient.
Our driver/tour guide for the day was Lafayette, he was excellent. A great driver and he also had a wealth of knowledge on the various attractions or locations we visited.
Time at the West Rim for us was ample (we only included the Skywalk), however for those who added on the optional Helicopter and Boat Tours it would have been a little rushed.
Food provided for lunch by the Hualapai Nation Ranch was good.
Overall a great day and would definitely recommend!!
All parts of the tour managed by Grey Line, from hotel pick up, information provided at central terminal, bus trip, driver etc with return to hotel by stated time were excellent and better than expected! Plenty time given for photos at Hoover Dam with comfort stop on return journey. Amazing views at the west rim at Grand Canyon with plenty time at 3 locations. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 due to limited customer service at Indian reservation, exception to this was the “cowboy” on site who interacted really well with tourists!
We really enjoyed this tour! We had Felix who was great! Bus had restroom on it if need and TVs. Seats recline as well. You travel approx 45 minutes to the Hoover Dam where you get 20 minutes (don’t worry, that’s enough time). Then you get back on the bus for a 2 hour ride to the Grand Canyon. Once you get to the GC, you are taken to a central station with facilities, food and gift shop. You had 3 hours to do as you wish, which was nice. There are shuttle buses that run every 10 minutes (sometimes quicker). There are 3 stops - stop with the Skywalk, stop with the ranch, and another stop that has great views of the canyon. The shuttle ride is approx 7-8 minutes to each stop. If you do the skywalk, you can’t take anything in there with you, there’s a choice to get in the line with a photographer to go with you to take your photos or a line if you don’t want your photo alien. Photos are $16 each or all the pics on a USB for $65.
Once you get back on the bus, you travel 1 hour 15 minutes to a rest stop then continue on to Vegas. We had a great time! Liked how we had time to nap on the way there and on the way back!
The trip was very pleasant very organized our driver was very informative of all the history from the Hoover Dam to the Grand Canyon. We did the Skywalk but it was a shame only half the rim can be walk the other halve is for business, we were not informed about that. Our lunch was included with the trip, it was terrible, other than that it was a magical trip .
A really nice day trip from Las Vegas. It did not disappoint. The beauty of the GC is awe inspiring. To go out on Skywalk was scary, yet amazing. Our driver/ guide Thomas was fantastic; informative and fun. Although some people on the tour arrived 35 minutes late for the clearly stated departure time, Thomas kept his composure and handled the situation so well.
Let's start with booking, they don't have good communication after booking the trip. If I wouldn't have called on my own then we wouldn't have know to be downstairs in a different hotel at 5:45 am. The confirmation email and website says 7:30. Then it didn't say my hotel isn't a pick up location. I just happened to call on my own to figure out pick up spot. That's when I was told details.
Of course this is Vegas so we were offered an upgrade and they said the first 8 people get their own personal driver in a smaller personal van. Get back quicker and everything. Perfect so we jumped and said yes. Next thing we know were sitting shoulder to shoulder with 4 people on a very small bench seat for 2 1/2 hours and there are 13 people on this bus instead of 8. Money talks right. And no sun shades on the bus to block the sun during that long ride. Besides that, the overall trip was gorgeous. Views are breath taking, you get to explore on your own for several hours, the free lunch isn't anything special either but it will put something in your stomach. Everyone we talked to was super nice though.
