What to Expect
Meet your driver at your Las Vegas hotel, and then begin the scenic, drive to Grand Canyon National Park. Upon arrival at the park, have time to purchase lunch and souvenir shopping before continuing to the South Rim. With wonderful views throughout the drive, keep your camera ready for stops at Bright Angel Lodge and Mather Point, an overlook that photographers love. The trip along the South Rim is an amazing experience on its own, but you can also pick from a range of upgrades. See the IMAX 'Grand Canyon Discovery and Adventure,' or opt for a guided Jeep tour of the South Rim. If you opt for a helicopter tour (which replaces time at Mather Point), enjoy breathtaking views on a flight, swooping over the Grand Canyon as you look straight down at the Colorado River. Finally, relax on the return trip to Las Vegas.

Dear ochizuro1, Thanks for leaving Gray Line a 5 star review. We are happy to learn that you enjoyed your day with us visiting the South Rim of the Canyon. As you say, it is quite a long journey- yet the views are unlike any other place on earth and definitely worth the effort. Plus, Sunset at the Canyon is definitely a treat! I also want you to know that everyone at Gray Line's more than 700 locations that are spread across 6 continents is hoping to see you on another great sightseeing tour sometime very soon. Regards, Zachary

Hello, This was our (girlfriend and I) first trip to Vegas. You see all the tour options and have no idea how to choose. After reading a few reviews, we decided to go with the Hoover Dam stop and South Rim tour. It was a long trip (6:30am-10:30pm), but the day was well worth it.
