What to Expect
Your morning starts with early pickup from your Las Vegas hotel by air-conditioned coach and a brief photo stop at Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. On arrival at Grand Canyon National Park, the bus drops you at the canyon’s West Rim. Board a helicopter and descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor, and then cruise along the mighty Colorado River on a pontoon boat and see the rock layers up-close. Next take a helicopter ride back up to the canyon’s West Rim and board a shuttle bus to Guano Point for a bird’s-eye view of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. Then you’ll have just enough time to stop at Eagle Point, visit Hualapai Village, and enjoy a cowboy cookout lunch at Hualapai Ranch. After lunch, hop back on the bus and end your tour with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas. This tour offers an optional upgrade to add on the glass-bottom Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Lot to take in on what is a very long day for a day tour. Very impressed with our Bus driver and Thomas our guide, kept up the enthusiasm all day. I did the Helicopter Flight (which was breathtaking), but it spoiled my further viewing of the canyon from a normal viewing
