Bus tours of Grand Canyon National Park leave Las Vegas daily. If you want to see a natural sight like no other in the world, you can’t miss the opportunity to take a day trip from Las Vegas and visit the Grand Canyon. You can shuttle to various attractions within the park, or hike down one of the main trails. Longer stays permit visitors to enjoy rafting on the Colorado River.
When you take one of the luxury bus tours of Grand Canyon National Park, you can see some of the following attractions:
Grand Canyon Village
Located at the South Rim, the historic village gives people a glimpse of what life in the canyon was like over one hundred years ago. Yavapai Point, located at the site, offers spectacular canyon views, and allows visitors to see an amazing sunset.
The Glass Skywalk
This attraction, found at the canyon’s West Rim, is a cantilevered bridge that features a tough glass platform. You can look deep down into the Canyon on the semi-circular structure. Tourists can walk 720 feet out over the canyon on the platform. Don’t be scared, as the glass will not shatter. It can hold a sizable amount of traffic and weight.
The Grand Canyon Railway
Built in the late part of the 19th century, the railway’s track was once used to transport mining ores from Williams, Arizona. When the railway was added, it enabled tourism – something that had not been possible before the addition of the track. The Grand Canyon Depot stopped passenger travel in 1968. However, the depot was restored and reopened in 1989.
Considered a lovely water attraction, the featured cascades include Navajo Falls, Fifty Foot Falls, Havasu Falls, Beaver Falls, and Mooney Falls. You can find these beautiful waters on Havasupai tribal land, just over two miles from the Supai Village. This attraction takes some time to see. Therefore, you need more than a day in the canyon if you choose to hike to this site.
Bus tours of Grand Canyon National Park also permit you to see a large number of indigenous wildlife. Some of the animals include bighorn sheep, mule deer, and, if you are lucky, you can hear the four-note hoots of the Mexican owl toward sunset.
