Take in everything Grand Canyon West has to offer with this comprehensive bus tour! Enjoy complimentary pick-up from your Las Vegas hotel for a short ride to the bus terminal. After a quick check-in process and orientation, you'll be ready to depart for the Grand Canyon. This amazing tour begins with a scenic journey on a comfortable sightseeing bus. The first stop is one of the highest bridges in the United States, the O’Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bridge. Spanning the majestic Colorado River within Black Canyon, the view of Hoover Dam and the dormant volcanoes such as Fortification Hill are breathtaking!
You'll arrive at Grand Canyon West, the region of the Grand Canyon that is home to the Hualapai Indian Tribe. This tour includes a walk on the Skywalk, the cantilevered bridge with a glass floor that gives its visitors a true bird's-eye view of the canyon. Jutting out 70 feet out into the canyon, the Skywalk rests 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and offers a view that is simply unbeatable. Walk about the rim of the canyon, then hop on board a helicopter for the 4,000-foot descent to the bottom of Grand Canyon West. When you arrive on the canyon floor, you'll walk along a trail that leads to the riverside docks. Pontoon boats await to float you on the gently surging water of the Colorado River.
Following your tranquil float, you'll again board a helicopter for the return flight to the canyon rim. Once you climb out of the helicopter, you’ll enjoy a light lunch and return via motorcoach to your Las Vegas hotel.
Please note that the Hoover Dam stop can be before or after the Grand Canyon experience.
