Meet your driver for an early morning pickup from your hotel on the Las Vegas Strip prior to your departure (confirm pickup time with tour provider). Begin your drive through the desert, stopping along the journey to stretch your legs at the Hoover Dam lookout point and the funky towns of Williams or Seligman along Route 66 in Arizona.
Upon arrival at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, spend your free time exploring at your own pace: walk along Hermit Road or Rim Trail, attend ranger programming, pop into the museum and gift shop, and of course, take in the view. Take your deli-style lunch with you to enjoy from one of the lookout points.
At the end of the day, return to the shuttle and drive back Las Vegas.
