Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour
Experience the Grand Canyon’s “wild” side, without going “crazy” with your vacation budget – on the Grand Canyon West Rim Motorcoach Tour!
Your first stop is the stately Hoover Dam, a masterpiece of modern engineering that helped make the Western United States what it is today. Upon closer examination of this imposing structure, you’ll note its distinctive art deco touches that date the dam’s design all the way back to the Roaring ’20’s. After about a photo stop, you’re off to your next destination: Grand Canyon West!
After exiting the interstate and passing through the small community of Dolan Springs, you then experience the look and feel of the landscape as it was thousands of years ago as a 900-year-old forest of Joshua Trees surrounds you. You are now on Hualapai Indian Tribal Lands.
Known in their language as “the people of the tall pines,” the Hualapai Indians are one of several Native American tribes residing in Arizona. In 1988, they began to develop their own tourism enterprise on the rim of the Grand Canyon called “Grand Canyon West.” Upon entering the complex, you’ll change buses and embark on your tour of the Hualapai Indian Tribal Park.
Your first stop is Eagle Point, where you’ll learn more about the Native peoples of the Southwest by touring replicas of their traditional dwellings. At the nearby amphitheatre, you’ll experience another aspect of Native American traditions with a dance or other type of cultural performance.
Eagle Point is also the site of Arizona’s newest and perhaps most controversial attraction: the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a cantilevered glass-bottomed bridge positioned high in the air above the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Those who wish to experience the Grand Canyon Skywalk for themselves will have the oppurtunity to purchase their tickets on-site at Grand Canyon West.
From there, you’ll be taken to Guano Point, named for a defunct mining operation. Here you’ll sit down to an outdoor barbecue lunch where everyone gets a table with a view! After lunch, take time to walk around the promontory to see some of the remnants of the old mine and cable car, and some spectacular views of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River.
After lunch, it’s time to get back on your motorcoach and head back to Las Vegas, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel. Your tour price includes tax, fuel surcharge, lunch and hotel shuttle service from most major hotels on the Strip or Downtown.
