Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour w/ Skywalk
Experience the Grand Canyon’s “wild” side, without going “crazy” with your vacation budget – on the Grand Canyon West Rim Motorcoach Tour!
Tour Duration: ~12 Hours (hotel to hotel)
Now, Las Vegas visitors can experience the Grand Canyon’s most exciting attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk! And what’s even more exciting? Someone else will do the driving, and you’ll actually get back to Las Vegas at a decent hour.
Your adventure begins when a van or mini-coach picks you up from your Las Vegas hotel. After a brief check-in and transfer to your touring Motorcoach, you’re on your way to Hoover Dam. You’ll enjoy a photo stop at this marvel of engineering: an imposing yet artful structure dating back to the 1920’s, which created of Lake Mead, the country’s largest man-made lake, which was integral in modernizing the Western US.
After leaving Hoover Dam, you’ll pass through the Mojave Desert, where ancient Joshua Trees surround you. Soon, you’ll arrive at Grand Canyon West, a Native American Tribal Park owned and operated by the Hualapai Indian Nation. Known in their native language as “the people of the tall pines,” the Hualapai Indians have occupied this area for over one thousand years. In the 1990’s, they began developing their land holdings around the Grand Canyon and have achieved significant success by offering Grand Canyon visitors experiences that were once considered impossible.
Your first stop is Eagle Point, site of Arizona’s newest and most exciting attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk! This horseshoe-shaped glass platform juts 70 feet past the canyon’s edge, giving you the spine-tingling sensation of walking on air hundreds of feet above bottom of the Grand Canyon. If time permits, you can also tour Grand Canyon West’s Indian Village, where you can walk inside replicas of the traditional dwellings of many Southwest Indian Tribes. At the Eagle Point Amphitheatre, you might catch a Native dance or cultural program presented by the Hualapai Indian Tribe.
A hearty barbecue lunch is served at Guano Point, and every single table has a view of the Grand Canyon! Named for a now defunct mining operation, at Guano Point you can still walk around the promontory to view remnants of a tram line and other implements that still remain.
Eventually, it’s time to head back to Las Vegas, and the beauty of this tour is that it’s about 12 hours long from *hotel to hotel.
