All vehicles are equipped with restrooms, large viewing windows, air conditioning, reclining seats, removable arm rests, foot rests, DVDs and monitors. Guests comfort, safety and satisfaction is always a number one concern.
Guests narrated tour will leave from Las Vegas through Boulder City with views of Lake Mead and the Colorado River from the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, with views better than the best Hoover Dam tours. On the way to the Grand Canyon, our guests will have the opportunity to learn about the Pioneer Indian Wars, early Spanish Conquistadors, the Missionaries, Mountain Men, Explorers and Settlers.
Once guests reach the Hoover Dam there is an optional stop that allows our guests to photograph the surrounding area during a short break. Guests may even get a chance to see one of the resident bighorn sheep before we cross over the new Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. This bridge is the longest concrete arch in the Western Hemisphere, spanning over 1,000 feet and 890 feet of above the Mighty Colorado River. Now it’s time to enjoy the Las Vegas to West Rim Grand Canyon drive.
Get to know the distance from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon West Rim on one of the most beautiful sections of our drive is the remote area known as Black Canyon. The voyage from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon helps tell the story of how this territory has played a significant role in the development of the American Southwest, from the ancient Anasazi Indians and the steamboat landings, to its present day use as part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Our guests will also pass through the Mojave Desert, that leads to the 900-year-old Joshua Tree Forest, one of the largest forests of its kind.
After the initial portion of the Las Vegas to West Rim Grand Canyon road experience, guests will arrive at Grand Canyon West in time for lunch, which is included in your tour package. This lunch is prepared by either member of the Hualapai Tribe or you will receive a complimentary box lunch on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Water is also included all day long. After lunch, guests will have a chance to walk along the rim, unblemished by modern civilization. Admire views like the Great Thunderbird image that nature has created. Before our final departure, guests will have time to browse the authentic curios and art objects of the West Rim that the tribal craftsmen have on display.
During your drive back to Las Vegas our guests will be delivered back to their Las Vegas hotels knowing that they have experienced one of the best Grand Canyon tours Las Vegas has to offer.
