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. 

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.
