Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This flexible West Rim coach tour offers optional activities to enhance your experience.
This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with restrooms, reclining seats, video monitors and large windows. Then make the trek east, passing through Joshua Tree forests and the Mojave Desert, and past the famous Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead to the Grand Canyon.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy hours of self-guided exploring at the West Rim. Hike to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in tour price). There are many options and a variety of exciting possibilities.

There are also two upgrades to consider during this time frame. First, consider adding a thrilling walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Secondly, there's a stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Additionally, enjoy a pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations.

We went on a small mini bus, no social distance was observed by the bus company. The driver hardly made people wear their mask. It was very hot on the bus, that was really out of their hands, "Mother Nature" was at her best that day 111 degrees, hard to keep anything cool. The driver did make stops to that we could get refreshments and to get cool drinks. Over all it was a nice tour to the Grand Canyon west rim

Was nice for the view .. I was expecting more guide .. more information about the grand canyon .. something better . The sky walk is nice but boring .. nobody said nothing about the structure .. about the things that happend there .. I think that when you go in a tour .. you re expecting the story about every thing ...

Pretty good but could have been better

The experience was fun and I really enjoyed being able to check off something from my list of things to do in life (Going to the Grand Canyon). However, my personal experience was not all that good. The coach was very hot and not as air conditioned as mentioned in the advertisement. I hope that they will better ventilation and cooler air conditioned vehicles if they are going to have this experience in the ot month of July. Also I paid for an extra attraction to go to the Sky walk and my ticket was given to another guest. The tour driver did pay for my replacement ticket but the whole thing took time away from my visit and I was not able to see the second site because of this and I just wish that the company would check IDs before giving out tickets, especially the extra ones that people pay for to have a better experience.

Buying a Meal Ticket wastes your time at the canyons

7/28/2020 Grand Canyon West Tour-We rode in a smaller shuttle bus-air was good-screens on windows make it hard to see out, but it helps block the hot sun. Makes it a blurry view. Our driver would throw the brakes on every time he would talk. He commented that he’s a really good driver in the beginning-the irony. Made some of us a little nauseated & it would jerk us back & forth-it was rough at times. He needs to be aware that he’s not just touching, but throwing the brakes on hard when he starts speaking & he does it repeatedly as he’s talking. Trust me it’s not the curves, ups/downs, & bumps of the road -it’s his braking when he talks that gets you. Several of us would comment out loud about it,, but he couldn’t hear us. His dialect also made it hard to understand him. He was friendly & informative when I could understand him-just hard to make out his words. We stopped on the way there & back for a restroom break & snacks. I do like how he got us there quickly & back. I would say it was mainly the braking during his commentating that got to us & was disappointed about not being able to understand him when he shared info. I would also warn other customers to take & turn in your meal ticket early at the eagle point cafe-maybe right after you see the eagle point canyon because it takes at least 45 min. to get your prepackaged meal-no lie. So, after you turn your tickets in walk to see gift shop & little museum inside the skywalk, then walk outside to see teepees at the back side & then come back to cafe & hopefully your meal may be ready. Otherwise you will be very upset to wait that long for dry bread sandwiches or wraps for that long which wastes valuable time to go to the next site at Guano. The cafe should have a sign to let customers know that it takes at least 40-45 min. to get your meal ticket food. So many people were upset & frustrated over this. It would save those cafe employees from hearing less disgruntled customers if they would either get more help in there or let people know it takes a while. People ordering fresh burgers, etc. would get their food before the meal ticket tour people. It was frustrating & we lost a lot of time because of having to wait for 4-water bottles, 4-dry sandwiches, 4- bags of chips & 4- small oranges in a plastic bag. After picking it up we then had to wait to catch a shuttle to Guano with less than an hour to visit. Had we known this was going to happen we would have turned in that meal ticket way earlier. Be warned-this was the most frustrating part of this trip. I would say don’t get a meal ticket at all. Wasn’t worth missing time to visit the Guano canyons.
