Experience everything the Grand Canyon West has to offer on this comprehensive bus tour! Enjoy complimentary pick-up from your Las Vegas hotel for a short ride to the bus terminal. This amazing tour begins with a scenic journey through the Mojave Desert on a sightseeing bus. Relax and take in the scenery on this comfortable, air conditioned vehicle with oversized windows for photos and sightseeing.

You'll arrive at Grand Canyon West, the region of the Grand Canyon that is home to the Hualapai Indian Tribe. This tour includes entry onto the Skywalk, a glass-bottomed bridge that gives visitors a truly unique opportunity to literally stand in the air above 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.

You'll have time to explore along the rim of the canyon before the next part of you adventure: a helicopter tour that lands on the bottom of the Grand Canyon! When you arrive on the canyon floor, you'll walk along a trail that leads to a dock on the Colorado River. You'll board a pontoon boat to enjoy a peaceful float along the Colorado River between the massive canyon walls. The spray of the cool river water is a refreshing treat in the desert climate!

Following your relaxing boat ride, 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.
