Adding a tour to the Grand Canyon on your Las Vegas vacation gives you the opportunity to satisfy your cravings for adventure. When you take one of the Grand Canyon bus tours featured in Vegas, you can choose from one of various destinations. Premier Vegas tour operators, such as Grand Canyon Destinations, visits locations, such as the following:
1. Grand Canyon National Park
This destination features Grand Canyon bus tours that lead visitors to the South Rim (via bus), or allows guests to take a guided walking tour. You can also opt for a small group tour of the South Rim by bus. The Grand Canyon runs through Grand Canyon National Park – a national recreation area established in 1919. The park covers an expanse of about 2,000 miles. Travelers to the South Rim reach a height of about 7,000 feet.
If you opt for this travel experience, you can take tours that feature sites, such as Mather Point, the Bright Angel Trailhead, Kolb Studio, El Tovar Hotel, the Yavapai Geology Museum, and visitor’s centers, such as the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and Verkamp’s Visitor Center.
2. The Grand Canyon West Rim, Including the Skywalk
Tour by luxury bus to the West Rim, one that includes a visit to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead – the largest reservoir in the US. After visiting the dam, the journey continues to the West Rim, a more remote part of the Grand Canyon, and home of the Hualapai Tribe. Guests begin the journey at the Welcome Center, and get to explore the site for four hours. You can even add a helicopter ride if you wish. Visitors who wish to casually explore the Canyon can take a shuttle to Eagle Point, home of the amazing Skywalk.
Horseshoe in configuration, the Skywalk is a 10-foot wide bridge made of five layers of sturdy glass. From this vantage point guests can see the expanse of the West Rim. The see-through bridge almost makes you feel like you are floating over the Canyon. Guests who visit the Skywalk pay separately for the ticket.
