Among the list of the best things to do while visiting Las Vegas critics have claimed helicopter, airplane, and motor-coach tours of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the majestic Grand Canyon, to be a must, and GC Flight is proud to be the top provider for discount tours of these attractions. The distance from Las Vegas to Hoover Dam/Lake Mead is less than an hour, and from there to the Grand Canyon National Park is only a few hours more on your Grand Canyon bus tour, making this vacation from Las Vegas a quick and easy, yet memorably, day trip. Visit the luxurious hotels, eat at the gourmet restaurants, shop at the premiere boutiques, party at the hottest nightclubs, and then take a relaxing getaway to one of the world’s natural wonders, the Grand Canyon.
Each GC Flight Grand Canyon bus tour departs from all major Las Vegas hotels and casinos before making its way towards the Grand Canyon National Park. Along the journey you will see the beautifully built Hoover Dam and its impounded body of water, Lake Mead as well as the newly built, Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. The Hoover Dam is a major tourist attraction in the United States, bringing nearly a million people a year, and the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge has become one, as well. The Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is a part of the Hoover Dam Bypass Project and was finished in October of 2010. Standing 270 miles tall and 579 miles long, the memorial bridge is the first concrete-steel composite arch bridge in the United States. The memorial bridge provides a safer route for travelers en route between Arizona to Nevada, and you will have the chance to view both the memorial bridge and the Hoover Dam from the comfort of your seat in GC Flight’s bus tours to the Grand Canyon. In addition to more history and facts about the Hoover Dam and the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, your tour guide will also give you fascinating insight on the history behind the land you will be traveling, including stories about Spanish conquistadors, missionaries, mountain men, and other explorers and settlers.
The history and exploration doesn’t end there for you, either. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, you will have the ability to look down into the majestic Grand Canyon, naturally and marvelously carved by the Colorado River. Depending on which Las Vegas Grand Canyon bus tour you decide to take, you will also have the ability to walk through historic paths and visit monumental landmarks within Grand Canyon National Park.
