Seek the Action in Grand Canyon Bus Tours from Sedona

There’s more to the Grand Canyon than just standing on the rim and looking down. With the Grand Canyon & Sedona 3 Day Adventure, you spend three days and two nights at this amazing national park. There’s traveling through the amazing Sonoran Desert from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon, relaxing in Sedona and seeing the deep red rock of the region, a breathtaking rafting trip down the Colorado River at the base of the Grand Canyon and a visit to the Glen Canyon Dam. You can do a similar version of these types of bus tours to Grand Canyon with the Sedona & Grand Canyon Tour – 2 Day venture.

Grand Canyon RailroadAdd the element of rail into the mix with the Sedona & Grand Canyon Rail Excursion – 2 Day, or the Sedona and Grand Canyon Rail 3 Day Tour. Both involve a motorcoach tour through the red rocks of the Sonoran Desert. Both also get you to Williams, Arizona, where you take a two hour and 15 minute ride with the Grand Canyon Railways to the deep gorge.

The Grand Canyon doesn’t need to be your final destination.

When in Vegas, go East on Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tours

It’s amazing just how close the Grand Canyon is to Vegas. Plus, with the Skywalk that opened in 2007 on the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, you have a matchless destination to this chasm that’s worth taking in. Las Vegas to Grand Canyon bus tours can include some sightseeing fun into your Vegas vacation.

On the Grand Canyon Flight and Skywalk, it’s only a 45-minute airplane ride from Las Vegas to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, where a bus moves you from Guano Point to Eagle Point along the edge of this deep precipice. VIP passes are included to allow you to skip long lines. Breakfast or lunch is served at Guano Point, where you get amazing 360º panoramic views of the Grand Canyon. Put an adrenaline-charged punctuation point on your visit by walking over the glass-covered cantilever bridge that extends 70 feet beyond the rim of the canyon. It’s called the Skywalk. You’ll understand why the owners, the Hualapai (pronounced WALL-uh-pie) Indians, or “people of the tall pines,” gave their bridge such a name once you walk on it and look down to the canyon floor hundreds of feet below you.

Taking Las Vegas Grand Canyon bus tours doesn’t need to include a motorcoach. On the Full-Day Ground, Air, and Water Outing to Grand Canyon, transportation from Vegas is in a luxury stretch SUV equipped with plush seating. Notice the distinctive 900-year-old trees in the Joshua Forest Parkway, or U.S. Route 93. You’ll also drive by Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. Amazing photographic possibilities leap out at you as your luxury SUV makes stops along the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Then, you’re into a chopper for a wonderful treat hovering up and down the abrupt cliffs of the canyon. You also take a pontoon float down the Colorado River. There’s even a nice picnic lunch awaiting you on this tour.

On the Grand Canyon West and Hoover Dam Jeep 2-in-1 outing, a Jeep takes you through the Mojave Desert to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon and then returns via Hoover Dam. Extraordinary photos of the 4,000-foot deep ravine are possible. You’ll travel over the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bypass Bridge, a 1900-foot bridge that opened on Oct. 19, 2010 in the Hoover Dam area.

The beauty about Grand Canyon bus tours is that you don’t have to worry about maps, directions and getting lost. Someone else does the driving and also provides a tour while you relax and take in the sights. Isn’t that what a vacation is all about?
