Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Receive an early-morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and then travel through the desert to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, admiring the scenery of 900-year old Joshua Trees while en route.

When you arrive at the West Rim, receive an included hop-on, hop-of sightseeing bus ticket which allows you to explore the canyon’s amazing scenery at your own pace. Spend the next three hours exploring however you like.

The bus will travel first to Eagle Point, home of a U-shaped glass “Skywalk” that extends out over the canyon rim. Those visitors who purchase the Skywalk package will have access to this incredible overlook dropping 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor below. Eagle Point is also the site of a Native American village where you can visit tribal homes, observe traditional Indian dances in the amphitheater.

Hop back on your bus and head to Guano Point, another overlook boasting striking views over the Colorado River and canyon below. Take a hike on the trail following the canyon edge, or head to a nearby eatery to enjoy a meal (own expense). Your bus will also make a stop at the Hualapai Cowboy Ranch, allowing guests to learn more about typical activities of the American West.

For those visitors that decide to add on the helicopter flight (optional upgrade), you’ll soar like a bird over the canyon rim, descending down to an overlook at 3,200 feet (975 meters) for an epic view of the scenery just above the Colorado River. At the end of your Grand Canyon exploration, receive a ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.

Please note: Because of time constraints, the Skywalk and helicopter options cannot be booked together. The helicopter ride lasts approximately 40 minutes.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Grand Canyon West
Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and head to the Grand Canyon's west rim - home to the world-famous Skywalk. After a relaxing bus ride through the 900 year old Joshua Tree forest, you will arrive at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Once here, you will receive a ticket for lunch and your shuttle ticket which will allow you to move about the canyon very easily. You will have approximately three (3) hours to explore here on your own.
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At:  
Grand Canyon Skywalk
Your first stop will be Eagle Point. Here, you can step out onto the glass skywalk, a U-shaped glass deck that extends 70 feet beyond the rim of the Canyon giving you a full view of the 4,000 foot drop to the Colorado River below. The views from here are nothing short of spectacular and be sure to spot the eagle in the facing rock. Also at Eagle Point is a Native American Village which displays many tribal homes and depicts the lifestyle of the local natives and you can watch cultural activities such as performances by Indian dances in the amphitheater. This is an optional upgrade that you can select upon checkout.
Duration: 30 minutes

Another great add-on is the Discovery Helicopter Tour where you will descend and land 3,200 feet below the rim viewing the breathtaking scenery from the bottom just above the Colorado River.

Our driver had so much knowledge of everything from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. (lovely British accent) He was very nice. The lunch provided was very good, exceeded our expectation of some gas station sandwich. They were freshly made sub sandwiches. The Grand Canyon itself is so amazingly beautiful and majestic. I love that you can get as close as you want since there were no barriers. Skywalk is a must!!! The Native village is a nice addition with different housing and sweat lodges. This is a great trip and highly recommend it. Everyone followed the mask and social distance rules also.

It is so nice to hear that you took the time to experience all of the fantastic elements of the Grand Canyon West Rim, especially the Hualapai cultural attractions, and of course, the Skywalk. Yes, such a beautiful and colorful natural attraction and I hope this was a memorable experience for yourself and any others with you. Thanks for your favorable comments, and I will certainly pass on your remarks to Wally, our fabulous driver/guide. Have a safe and healthy holiday season!

Wonderful driver, very informative. Pointed out areas of interest along the way. Grand Canyon is amazing. This is a must see. Nice native area displaying different types of homes and sweat lodges. Wasn’t expecting much with lunch but it was a great fresh deli sandwich not the prepackaged junk at a gas station.
