This South Rim Bus Tour of Grand Canyon National Park is presented by Grand Canyon Destinations. It is one of the leading day tours departing from Las Vegas.
We DO NOT use a check-in terminal like other companies (check-in terminals waste valuable time). Instead, we pick up straight from select hotels on the strip or downtown. Why does this matter to you? Simple, we have later pickup times and earlier drop off times… so you get to sleep in a little later and get back to your hotel a little earlier!
Our bus drivers are trained tour guides and will provide you with interesting facts, stories, and information during your journey. We don’t just have bus drivers, we have professional Driver Guides!
We are organized and efficient! From the moment you book until you are dropped off after your tour ends, we excel in having an organized operation. We will stay in contact with you with all important information regarding your tour.
Your tour includes delicious breakfast snacks, bottled waters, and also a free deli sandwich lunch meal!
Our buses are all less than 5 years old and all have factory installed seatbelts. Our drivers follow all driving laws including never driving more hours than allowed by law. In addition, our buses are maintained on our regular preventative maintenance schedule by our highly trained and certified diesel mechanics. Although just like your own vehicle, it is possible for any bus to have unexpected issues……with our company, it’s extremely rare because of how well we take care of our buses. We don’t skimp on maintenance!
Hotel pickups are scheduled between 6 AM and 7 AM. The assigned pick up time will be sent to you by email before 6:30 PM the night before your scheduled tour. If you do not have access to your email, please call our office between 5 PM and 7 PM the night before your trip.
Our buses are all late model vehicles with adjustable, comfortable seating, individually controlled air conditioning and panoramic windows for your travelling comfort. There is also a unisex lavatory aboard for customer convenience.
To start the morning, we offer you a delicious snack for breakfast to enjoy along the way. The first stop is at The Hoover Dam where you can take fantastic pictures thanks to its wonderful views. Your trip continues with pleasant landscapes until you reach your next destination, a comfort stop near Kingman, Arizona. Continue your trip on ROUTE 66 (the famous road also known as The Main Street of America) with a stop at a gift shop in Seligman, Arizona. Take a few moments to enjoy Seligman’s famous signs, automobiles and friendly residents – a trip back to the 40’s and 50’s, the town mimicked in the cartoon movie “Cars.”
Stops at Grand Canyon National Park include Mather Point (45 minutes) and Bright Angel Lodge (2 hours). Our bus will take you to each point, or if you prefer, you can walk along the paved road between the two points and enjoy the absolutely breathtaking views.
After visiting both points, we will begin the trip back to Las Vegas. Along the route, we will also make an additional comfort stop at the famous California based In-N-Out Burger in Kingman, Arizona where you will have an opportunity to purchase one of their world famous burgers (vegetarian options are also available). For one last amazing memory, keep your eyes open and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Hoover Dam as we drive over the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and then see the Las Vegas Valley skyline illuminated at night as we descend into the valley. The average hotel arrival time is around 9:30 p.m.
