If a trip to the awe-inspiring South Rim of the Grand Canyon has been one of your dreams, now is the time to fulfill that wish. You can do it easily and economically by booking our Grand Canyon South Rim motor coach tour that whisks you from your Las Vegas hotel direct to the Grand Canyon National Park, and then returns you full of enthusiasm for the natural beauty you have seen. Board your modern coach any day of the week for the relatively short ride to Hoover Dam, and a short stop for photos, before continuing on through the Mojave Desert and along the Colorado River to your destination at the Grand Canyon National Park.
Knowledgeable commentary by your driver-guide will inform and entertain you – you’ll learn about the history of the American Southwest, the forces that shaped the scenery, and the people that inhabited the land. Frequent rest stops will let you experience the stark beauty up close and personal, and you’ll be allowed ample opportunity to document your trip through photographs. Once at the Rim, there will be time to hike along its edge, see the changing canyon floor below and marvel at its immense size. You’ll enjoy a meal, as well as the information provided at the National Geographic Center; a redeemable food voucher is included in the price of the trip. Additional stops at Mather Point and Grand Canyon Village offer you varied views and add to your impressions of the Canyon.
Finally, you’ll be returned to your hotel in Las Vegas, following an adventure-filled, but effortless day.
