This sightseeing tour of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then make the 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.
Enjoy your time exploring at the West Rim of the canyon, with brief hikes to Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the views. Stay for a cowboy cookout at Guano Point or visit the Hualapai Ranch for an indoor buffet lunch.
Upgrade your ticket to include a walk on the glass-bottomed Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon, or lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then descend between its walls and land at the base. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of this natural wonder.
This day tour also includes a photo stop at Hoover Dam, either before or after visiting the Grand Canyon.
