Las Vegas Grand Canyon Tours

There are some real advantages with enjoying Las Vegas Grand Canyon tours on your visit to Sin City. First, one of the seven natural wonders of the world is on the eastern doorstep to Vegas. If you’re that close to the Grand Canyon, you should go see it. Second, the best access to some new sightseeing adventures—namely, the Skywalk and a new bypass bridge at Hoover Dam—are best accessed via the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is a hop, skip and a jump away with Vegas tours to Grand Canyon. Third, it’s just plain fun.

Enjoy Scenery with Las Vegas Grand Canyon Bus Tours

Las Vegas Grand Canyon ToursThere are three modes of transportation in the Vegas to Grand Canyon Motorcoach, Helicopter, and Pontoon Adventure. First, a luxury motorcoach transports you through the Mojave Desert. It might be hot outside, but you enjoy air conditioning while gazing out the huge windows of your bus. You’ll enjoy the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bypass Bridge at Hoover Dam that was new in 2010. A picture opportunity awaits you there. After arriving at the West Rim, a helicopter floats you down the 4,000-foot depth of this gigantic abyss to the canyon floor. Then, you board a pontoon boat to float the Colorado River and gaze up the precipitous canyon walls. A barbecue buffet awaits you back on top of the West Rim, served by the Hualapai (pronounced WALL-uh-pie) Indians. In their language, they’re known as “people of the tall pines.” This is a fully-guided tour with pick-up and drop-off to your Vegas hotel.

Grand Canyon Skywalk

Vegas to Grand Canyon bus tours don’t need to involve huge 48-passenger motorcoaches. The Grand Canyon West Jeep Tour uses a Jeep with a dual rear axle transformed into an intimate mini touring vehicle with plush seating. The trick with this tour is that the smaller vehicle carries fewer passengers, so you’re in a smaller group, and it can maneuver to places that a large bus cannot. Take in the Joshua Tree Drive. Explore the West Rim of the Grand Canyon and be amazed at the immense depth of this gorge. An extra fee gets you on the Skywalk, a 70-foot U-shaped bride with a glass base that you walk upon.

During the Grand Canyon West Drive and Fly excursion, you take a converted Jeep from Vegas to the canyon’s West Rim and ride a helicopter down into the depths of the canyon where the Colorado River flows. Twenty minutes is spent in the air and the other 20 minutes of your chopper time is spent on the valley floor to soak in the immensity of this truly “Grand” ravine. You get a barbecued lunch and return to Vegas on this nine-hour adventure.

Through the Grand Canyon West Rim by Ground & Air voyage, you see the Great Wash Cliffs carved out by the Colorado River and 900-year-old Joshua trees. There’s a stop at Hoover Dam for photographs. Hualapai Ranch gives you excellent vantage points of the Grand Canyon. Plus, a 40-minute helicopter ride takes you to the canyon floor. An experienced tour guide provides interesting commentary on this tour.

From there, the helicopter drops you down the 3,200-foot cliff of the Grand Canyon to the floor below. Then, you witness the Valley of Fire, the oldest state park in Nevada, where intense red rock formations dazzle your view. The final extravagance of this helicopter tour gives you a run down the Vegas Strip for the full effect of the glittering lights that makes Sin City so famous.

Add some adventure to your holiday bliss with the Full-Day Grand Canyon Fly-and-Raft 9½-hour tour. An early morning 45-minute helicopter ride floats you into the floor of the Grand Canyon.
