Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Receive an early-morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and then travel through the desert to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, admiring the scenery of 900-year old Joshua Trees while en route.

When you arrive at the West Rim, receive an included hop-on, hop-of sightseeing bus ticket which allows you to explore the canyon’s amazing scenery at your own pace. Spend the next three hours exploring however you like.

The bus will travel first to Eagle Point, home of a U-shaped glass “Skywalk” that extends out over the canyon rim. Those visitors who purchase the Skywalk package will have access to this incredible overlook dropping 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor below. Eagle Point is also the site of a Native American village where you can visit tribal homes, observe traditional Indian dances in the amphitheater.

Hop back on your bus and head to Guano Point, another overlook boasting striking views over the Colorado River and canyon below. Take a hike on the trail following the canyon edge, or head to a nearby eatery to enjoy a meal (own expense). Your bus will also make a stop at the Hualapai Cowboy Ranch, allowing guests to learn more about typical activities of the American West.

For those visitors that decide to add on the helicopter flight (optional upgrade), you’ll soar like a bird over the canyon rim, descending down to an overlook at 3,200 feet (975 meters) for an epic view of the scenery just above the Colorado River. At the end of your Grand Canyon exploration, receive a ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.

Please note: Because of time constraints, the Skywalk and helicopter options cannot be booked together. The helicopter ride lasts approximately 40 minutes.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Grand Canyon West
Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and head to the Grand Canyon's west rim - home to the world-famous Skywalk. After a relaxing bus ride through the 900 year old Joshua Tree forest, you will arrive at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Once here, you will receive a ticket for lunch and your shuttle ticket which will allow you to move about the canyon very easily. You will have approximately three (3) hours to explore here on your own.
Duration: 3 hours

The views from here are nothing short of spectacular and be sure to spot the eagle in the facing rock. Also at Eagle Point is a Native American Village which displays many tribal homes and depicts the lifestyle of the local natives and you can watch cultural activities such as performances by Indian dances in the amphitheater. This is an optional upgrade that you can select upon checkout.

Earl our driver was the best, from start to finish. He was an encyclopedia of information. Stopped in a small town on the way to pick up our lunch. While waiting for sandwiches to be made we had time to shop and ordered a stuffed jalapeño to try, it was out of this world. He dropped us of at the canyon and gave us plenty of time experience everything. We had a blast and strongly recommend the private tour .

Hi Thomas, Earl is a very wonderful person. We are glad that you enjoyed him as your private guide. Thank you for your wonderful review.

Amazing tour
Janette_H

This tour was so worth it! I highly recommend. We were a party of 8 with children. Tour guide was Dirck and he was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Kept us laughing! He made a few stops along the way so we were able to get the kids out before they got too bored. Views are amazing. We were the first ones on the bus and made a few stops along the way to pick up more people at their hotels. We were on the road by 7am and back around 5-6pm. I felt like it gave us enough time at both locations once there. Dirck gave us a few pointers and things to look for. Thanks Dirck!! You the man!

Thanks for your very generous feedback on the tour and so happy all of you enjoyed the experience with Dirck. Will pass on your comments to him. Please stay safe, healthy and close to family and friends.

False Advertising of what you get
Dwayne_S
, Feb 2021
Advertised included 15 helicopter tour (did not) Advertised included 30 min. breakfast stop at a restaurant included (did not) got a muffin and bananas. Ad stated voucher for lunch at the skyview restaurant or bbq at the last stop (did not) instead given sandwich. Last stop was cut off as well. False advertising and would do nothing about it, not even an apology.

Hi Dwayne, would you please send us the ad where you saw it? Maybe I can help you figure out which company offer that kind of service or where the confusion was. Our company do not advertise anything like what you mentioned.
