On the Rim to River Skywalk, you’ll have all the fun that Grand Canyon West has to offer and enjoy the more relaxing pace and economical price of a Motorcoach tour. Your expedition begins with pickup at your hotel and transfer to your touring Motorcoach. As you head out of Las Vegas, you’ll see not one but two marvels of modern engineering: a photo stop at Hoover Dam reveals an artistic yet imposing example of 1920’s era ingenuity. Continuing on, you’ll travel over recently opened Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, towering almost 1,000′ over the bedrock of the Colorado River!
Soon, an expansive Joshua Tree Forest surrounds you. One of the last and largest remaining stands of this unusual desert flora, this grove is estimated to be almost 1,000 years old. The Hualapai Indian Tribe has been united to these lands for about the same time. Today, their tribal land holdings have garnered international fame and brought prosperity to their people by enabling Grand Canyon visitors to experience what they craved most: the ability to get to the bottom of the Grand Canyon quickly and comfortably by helicopter. And soon, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing!
After disembarking from your touring Motorcoach, you’ll climb aboard a comfortable efficient touring helicopter for the most exciting ride ever – to the bottom of the Grand Canyon! A simple hike will take you to a waiting pontoon boat to enjoy a leisurely smoothwater cruise up the Colorado River and back, after which you’ll return by helicopter back to the rimside. And if you thought that view was amazing, wait till you see what’s next – the Grand Canyon Skywalk! Visualized by a Las Vegas businessman, this cantilevered horseshoe-shaped walkway is paved entirely with glass, giving you the peculiar, if not downright freaky sensation of walking on air high above the canyon floor. But don’t worry – this innovative structure is solid as the rock underneath it, capable of supporting the weight of over a dozen loaded 747’s!
By this point in time, you’re probably getting hungry; great time to grab a bite! Here again, choice is the word as you can pick from several menu options: the Skywalk Cafe at Eagle Point, a hearty barbecue lunch at Guano Point overlooking the Grand Canyon, or dine with the cowboys at the Hualapai Ranch.
Eventually it’s time to return to Las Vegas, where complimentary shuttle transport will return you to your hotel, at a decent hour to boot. Now that you don’t have to choose your fun, you know people will be choosing the Rim to River Skywalk, and so should you.
