This way, your day trip will begin on time and you will not have to travel very far to meet your tour guide.

Our luxury buses are equipped with all the amenities you expect to make your day trip from Las Vegas both relaxing and fun.

Our bus drivers are skilled, friendly, and accommodating. Therefore, you can leave the driving completely to them on your Grand Canyon day tour.
Choose From Our Great Tour Options
If you want to break away from Vegas and join one of the Grand Canyon tours, you can do so with Grand Vegas Tours. We have multiple Grand Canyon destinations available to travel to. We can accommodate your tour needs to the Grand Canyon South Rim or the canyon’s West Rim. You can even choose a shorter half day trip when you book Hoover Dam tours if you want to stay closer to the Strip.

Small Group Luxury Grand Canyon Tours
If you want to travel with a small group of people, you can choose this option for your Grand Canyon tour from Las Vegas. Each of our canyon rim bus tour options can be taken with a rim VIP upgrade. The difference between a regular South Rim tour or Grand Canyon West experience and the small group option is how you travel.
In our normal tours, groups ride on a 55 passenger van and stick to a group schedule. With our rim VIP tours, you will travel on a 14 passenger Mercedes Sprinter van. You will also have more control over your schedule on a small group VIP tour. This makes any small group tour friendlier and more personalized.
Private Custom Grand Canyon Tours
If you wish to schedule a customized tour of the Grand Canyon, you can do so through Grand Vegas Tours. Planning a special event, family reunion, wedding, or retreat for your office staff? If so, we are experts in planning customized Grand Canyon tours that are both memorable and reasonable in cost.
Whether you want to add a Grand Canyon helicopter flight, an air tour, or even a white water rafting tour on the Colorado River, we can connect you with the necessary people.
Stop At The Grand Canyon Caverns And Travel Route 66
Each tour to the Grand Canyon we include a visit to the Grand Canyon Caverns on the way. Grand Canyon Caverns are located directly off of historic Route 66. As you drive along Route 66 for over 50 miles, you will feel the history and nostalgia of the famous road. Additionally, your tour guide will share interesting history of the area to keep you even more entertained.
Stopping at the caverns for one hour, you will have the chance to stretch your legs, explore the expansive property, and get your lunch included in the tour package. Additionally, while at the caverns, you can choose to add on a 45-minute caverns experience tour. This tour will take you over 200 feet underground in an elevator. You will then follow a guide who leads you to the large caverns.
We are the only tour company in Vegas that includes a stop at the Grand Canyon Caverns. This makes our Grand Canyon tours more special and valuable than a typical Grand Canyon tour.
Grand Canyon South Rim
Taking one of the Grand Canyon tours provided by Grand Vegas Tours will give you a chance to really experience the canyon without worry. All you need to do is leave the driving to an experienced bus driver and rely on the knowledge of our friendly tour guides.
Scheduling South Rim Tours
If you have never visited the Grand Canyon before, you are in for a treat when you start with a Grand Canyon South Rim day trip. Most people, who have not visited the Grand Canyon, opt for a South Rim tour. This area of the Grand Canyon is part of Grand Canyon National Park. It has a large number of attractions and viewpoints, as well as a wonderful visitor’s center.
See The Park Attractions And Overlooks
Once you are inside, Grand Canyon National Park tours are full of outdoor activities and views. You can take the park shuttle or walk to major attractions. One major attraction at the South Rim is Grand Canyon Village – a National Historic Landmark site. In the village, you will stop by the visitor center to get more information. From there you can also visit Bright Angel lodge, which boasts one of the best views of the canyon.
Popular Points To Visit On Grand Canyon Tours
Tours in Grand Canyon South allow visitors to see over 50 viewpoints. Some of the more popular points on Grand Canyon tours include Mather Point and Hermit’s Rest.
Mather Point is normally the first viewpoint park visitors see because it is closely located to the Visitor Center. The view from Mather Point is so expansive that on a clear day you can nearly see all the way across the canyon to the Grand Canyon North Rim. While the north canyon rim is not too far away as the crow flies, it takes about 5 hours to drive there from the South Rim.
If you venture along the west edge of the South Rim, you will come to Hermit’s Rest. Mary Colter, a famous Grand Canyon architect, built this building so it would easily blend in with the canyon’s cliffs. Today, you can take some fantastic photos at this site near Grand Canyon.
You can also visit one of the gift shops where you can buy souvenirs and unique Native American crafts. Stop at Market Plaza, the gift shop at El Tovar Hotel, and Kolb Studio to see what the canyon has to offer. It is always nice to remember Grand Canyon tours by bringing home a special object from the trip.
Additionally, you can drop in and learn more about the canyon at the Yavapai Museum of Geology. This museum is located along the Trail of Time. Along the South Rim tour, this is the trail you travel that provides incredible canyon floor views.
Another interesting site to see is the Grand Canyon Railway Depot. This is located behind the El Tovar hotel and is where the Grand Canyon Train pulls in to park when it arrives at the canyon.
Stop By The Visitor Center First
The best thing to do, if you have not visited the South Rim is to visit the visitor’s center first. Here, you can get any questions answered through staff members. They can give you further details about hiking trails, attractions, and rim tours in general.
Taking The Rim Trail
Once you have spent some time at the visitors center, your next stop is Mather Point Overlook. You can take some great pictures of the canyon from this point. The Rim Trail is a path that you will want to take as well. The paved walking trail follows the canyon’s rim for 13 miles. It spans from the South Kaibab Trailhead and ends at Hermit’s Rest.
The path is ideal for anyone who is not used to more strenuous hiking, as it is level and features a mix of shade and sun. This part of the park has been touted as one of the most beautiful scenic walks on the North American continent. Therefore, you will be rewarded with lovely views the whole distance of the path. This is surely the best that Grand Canyon land tours has to offer.
See The Yavapai Geological Museum And Walk The Bright Angel Trail
The geological museum in the park is indeed interesting, as the surrounding view represents the canyon geology well. You can learn more about how the rocks formed over thousands of years, and how the canyon evolved by the erosive action of the Colorado River.
You can see Bright Angel Trail from this vantage point too. The trail is a well-maintained dirt hiking trail that starts west of Bright Angel Lodge. Both mule trains and hikers regularly take the pathway. Be cautious if you are traveling in early spring or in the winter, as the upper part of the path can by icy and slick. This trail leads down to the Colorado River. It is not advised for people visiting the park for the day to make this whole hike as it takes a long time to travel to the bottom of the canyon.
Visiting The West Rim
Some visitors prefer to visit the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. Unlike the South Rim, this part of the Grand Canyon is owned and operated by the Hualapai tribe.
People taking West Rim Grand Canyon tours usually do so to see the amazing engineering marvel, the Grand Canyon Skywalk. This cantilever bridge is a horseshoe shaped platform that allows visitors to see down into the canyon’s depths.
Don’t be worried about the fact the platform is made of glass. The bridge can hold a lot of people. In fact, the Grand Canyon SkyWalk can support as many as 800 200-pound people. However, the maximum occupancy stands at 120. The resilient bridge is also made to withstand hurricane force winds and 8.0 earthquakes.
When visiting the West Rim on Grand Canyon tours, guests also get to visit sites, such as Eagle Point. The rock outcropping takes the form of an eagle, therefore giving it the name Eagle Point. Another viewpoint on the West Rim is Guano Point, another place to capture spectacular views.
Enjoy Lunch On Grand Canyon Tours
Enjoy a repast at the Guano Deli, which is located at the canyon’s West Rim edge. Highpoint Hike is yet another natural attraction that cannot be missed at Grand Canyon West. Enjoy a 360-degree view of the canyon and the Colorado River too. Guano Point also features the remains of a historic tram that once transported guano from an operating mine. The tram stretched 8,800 feet along the length of the canyon.
Zip Line At Grand Canyon’s West Rim
The outdoor activities do not end there. If standing on the edge of the canyon is not enough, the West Rim also features a zip line. The ride will send you flying at speeds as fast as 40 mph. If you are a thrill seeker, you will get your adrenaline rush here.
