(Assorted snacks and water are available throughout the day.)

Upon arrival, enjoy a narrated coach tour of the Grand Canyon’s highlights.

Excellent tour. Tommy our guide was one of the best tour guides that I ever met. The helicopter tour was also awesome. Highly recommended package.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

I would definitely recommend this excursion. This tour was undoubtedly a highlight in my trip to US. Grand Canyon is a natural wonder of the world, its scenery is breathtaking (photos do not make it justice) The drive to the South Rim from Vegas was long but well-worthy. The vehicle was spacious and comfortable and we were fortunate to have such a great guide (Mark) He certainly made the drive feel shorter as he kept answering all our questions and delighting us with stories and information. There were also several stops along the way being the main one at Seligman a Historic Route 66 town. Here we met the daughter of the legendary Angel Delgadillo and visited his barber and gift shop. After having our packed lunch (good in size, great in quality!) we just continued enjoying what was an amazing day trip strolling along the Canyon rim, spotting some elks and birds, checking the Native American shop and the Geology Museum… We took many photos but this superb experience will remain in our memory for years to come!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Fantastic full-day tour that takes you through stunning mountain & desert scenery to Grand Canyon, with an interesting stop at the original Route 66 Gift Shop. Even though it was a long journey to the South Rim, our tour guide Mark made it enjoyable with his interesting stories and facts and did a great job answering all the questions we had; I learned so much about the US during the journey! Grand Canyon was definitely worth the long drive, even on a cloudy day the view was breath taking, and we had a plenty of time to walk along the rim, take photos, admire the view and visit the gift shops. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vegas!

This company knows how to take care of their guest. The guide (James) made sure we were comfortable and kept us entertained thru out the trip. He got us to the Grand Canyon early to avoid the crowd. This is a tour not to be missed. We will be doing it again but this time we will opt for the Helicopter option. One of the people in our group did it and they absolutely loved it. So that is something we need to do. I recommend doing this tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This is a family trip that you want to take. We had plenty of stops for potty breaks which didn’t make the trip seem long. I enjoyed the lunch they offered. Especially those huge cookies that were delicious. I liked the stop at Williams, AZ to check out the Grand Canyon Trains. We had our guide take plenty of pictures for us. I will be doing another trip going to the West Rim with this company.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This tour was phenominal. We were proptley picked up and the Sprinter Vehicle was very clean. The leather seats reclined which allowed you to take a nap. Our guide James was very knowledgable and gave us plenty of insight from beginning to end about the Grand Canyon and what we can expect. I loved the fact that it was a small group because we arrived before all the big coach busses arrived. I enjoyed the entire trip and will do it again soon.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Long day - longer than advertised but it allowed us to take pictures of the far side of the canyon as the shadows changed. Greg our driver was very friendly and knowledgable and didn't seem to want to leave the canyon for the long drive home ! Good value for money and a memorable day.

Just a wonderful day trip to the South Rim. Driver Jeff kept things moving for the 13 hour journey, and the views of the Grand Canyon and visits to small towns in Arizona made it a very memorable trip. Highly recommended!
