This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with reclining seats and large windows. Then make the trek east, passing through Joshua Tree forests and the Mojave Desert, and past the beautiful Lake Mead to the Grand Canyon.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy hours of self-guided exploring at the West Rim. Hike to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in tour price). There are many options and a variety of exciting possibilities.

There are also two upgrades to consider during this time frame. First, consider adding a thrilling walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Secondly, there's a stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Additionally, enjoy a pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations.

The over all trip was nice ad host was great. But what I didn’t like was the shuttle bus HAD NO A/C working in 118 degree weather !!! They make to much money not to keep up with there’s busses !! And that was the whole way up to the Grand Canyon and the whole way back. I talked to other group there but was was working just fine.

My husband and I really enjoyed the Grand Canyon tour. It was breathtaking in person. The driver, Thomas, was entertaining and informative. He maintained his positive demeanor and kept our spirits up when the air on the bus went out. He acted as quickly as he could to resolve the problem. When his attempts failed he called for another bus and got us moved quickly and efficiently so that we could get back to our hotel. We would definitely recommend this tour company and Thomas to anyone looking to see this great world wonder.

Always worth the trip to the Grand Canyon. It was nice other than the hour delay because of an accident right before Hoover Dam bridge which caused a big backup when arriving at the rest stop because two other busses were also there Also we were told masks were to be worn while on the bus ,only some people weren't and driver never reminded them to put them on air conditioning also was not good on the way home and it was too warm on the bus

Dear Barry_B, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us a review. We are sorry that you day was delayed by a highway accident, yet we are happy that you enjoyed the Grand Canyon. We also sorry that the A/C had issues on the return. We do maintain our equipment to the highest standards, however the current heat wave has certainly taken a toll on anything A/C related in the Southwest. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line around the world I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service.

Poor A/C

Everything was fine except the shuttle had poor air conditioning and it was triple digit heat outside. It was very hot in the shuttle. I had a real hard time hearing the shuttle bus driver, she wasn't speaking loudly enough.

Dear Crystal_T, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and leaving us a 3 star review. Regarding the a/c on the coach- the extreme late Spring temperatures have been less than kind to both people and machines, we are very sorry this affected your enjoyment of the Grand Canyon and I want to assure you that our mechanics are working tirelessly to try and stay on top of this very important issue. I will also be conversing your driver/guide about making sure she projects her voice and everyone can hear here.

Our driver was awesome! I forget his name though. Hispanic guy but he was hilarious. Beautiful views, decently organized, and a good lunch! The lines were a little long for the skywalk though. On the way back our bus broke down and we had to wait 2 hours at a gas station for a mechanic, but the driver was in great spirits the whole time about it. Very impressed! Bring cash for a tip at the end! We felt awful we didn’t have any cash on us- the driver didn’t have Venmo for a tip.

It was perfect. We signed up for the small bus tour (20-25 people) which helped us move faster and spend less time traveling. I highly recommend that if you can afford it. As far as the West Canyon, it was perfectly set up - two stops and the views were breathtaking. This trip is a must!!
