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, panoramic windows and onboard restroom. Then make the trek east, first stopping at the Hoover Dam bypass bridge for a great photo opportunity, a stop for breakfast (included) and then driving through Joshua Tree forests and the Mojave Desert to the Grand Canyon.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy four (4) 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.

At the canyon I did not get around very well because there weren't signs or directions, a tour guide would have been nice. But the time was also short going from one site to another so not sure how much a guide would have been to accomplish anything. Because I did not do the skywalk I almost missed lunch because to get to the sign showing where lunch was at you had to enter the area for the skywalkers. But on the other hand our driver shared with us so much history of the area and tried to be so helpful with everything he made the trip to and from the canyon so enjoyable that I will recommend it to others. Our driver was a treasurer of knowledge and laughter, and very considerate of what we may need.

A bit less than expected..
Debbie_A
, May 2022
So, I was all excited to do this solo trip hoping to see the Hoover Dam and the GC. The GC was AWESOME.... worth the hike and saving the money to fly all the way from the EC to see part of it, - it just seemed a bit rushed and the driver who works for an independent bus company is also the 'tour guide' - He was great! I just feel there is a vagueness to the allotted time, and we left earlier than we were supposed to. Seemed like he suddenly decided to leave at 3pm as opposed to 5pm. Also the time at Hoover was literally to take a photo from way above the Dam, not indicated or explained, so it appears false advertisement on this portion of the trip. I understand it is a group of people who are not together. Many solo travelers and then some small groups of people make up these tours... but at least give us the time to see the place... Also, the trip was advertised at one price and then when you select it, it was nearly twice as much.... that is apart from the fact that you have to choose which option you take. Maybe next time Viator will do better. I remain grateful for the service they provide, they need to be accurate about information - that's all.

Dear Debbie_A, Thank you for choosing Gray Line and we are sorry if we missed your expectations, particularly regarding pricing. As with most tourism products, prices can vary depending upon both the date chosen and what a traveler would like to do. Some travelers just want to visit the amazing scenic points at the West Rim, while other might want to venture out on the glass bottomed SkyWalk ant the truly adventurous may want to take a helicopter to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for a boat ride on the mighty Colorado River. Obviously, as the more complex components are added to a schedule, the price will change. We are sorry if this was misunderstood and we will of course try and do better. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line around the globe, I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service

The place is absolutely gorgeous!! But the time given was so limited. Breakfast is not served as advertised.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Milagros, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and we are sorry if there was an issue with your receiving your breakfast. I would suggest you contact our Las Vegas office about this issue. Regarding, the amount of time at the West Rim- some guests want more and some guests want less, so we have to pick a happy medium....which is longer than any other Las Vegas sightseeing company that regularly takes visitors to this amazingly spectacular destination. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line around the globe, I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service.
