Our driver, Jackie, did a great job. She made sure we knew all we needed to know to have the best time possible. Everything went smoothly.
Combine the best of both worlds—a narrated tour through the desert and plenty of free time to explore on your own—on this 15-hour day tour from Las Vegas. Stop at Hoover Dam and a charming small town on the way to the Grand Canyon, then enjoy three hours of free time to explore the South Rim at your own pace.
Meet your driver (pickup from most hotels on the Strip is included) to begin your journey. During the five-hour drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, get to know your guide and learn more about the geography and history of the upcoming sights. Stretch your legs at the Hoover Dam lookout point, where you can snap photos of this man-made wonder.
Next, make a pit stop in either Williams or Seligman along Route 66 in Arizona. Both are charming, funky towns with eclectic, locally-owned shops and cafes.
Once you reach the Grand Canyon, spend three hours exploring the South Rim at your own pace. Hike the 2.5 mile paved trail to Mather Point, attend ranger programming, shops for souvenirs at the gift shop, or simply take in the majestic views from Grand Canyon Village. Take your deli-style lunch with you to enjoy as you please.
After a full day of exploration, board the shuttle for the 5-hour drive back to Las Vegas. Take a nap on the way and return to your hotel around 10 p.m.—just in time to enjoy the nightlife!

Everything of the tour was as expected: light breakfast, lunch box were good and South Rim was amazing, bus driver/guide very nice. The problem: not for tall persons. The coach had 60 seats which had no leg room. Close to 10 hours in the bus...More
This trip is well worth the effort. It is a very long day but made tolerable with interesting commentaries, movies including some about the Grand Canyon. Adequate time is allowed to walk the rim, and we saw the majestic Grand Canyon and some wild life....More
Plan on a long day when you take this tour. If you wish to take a small group tour, book early. Those were sold out the day we were going. The bus had huge windows and the seats were okay. Just before stepping onto the...More
