Visit the Grand Canyon Together with Other Attractions
The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular destinations to visit from Las Vegas. You can visit either the Grand Canyon South Rim or the Grand Canyon West Rim.
Our tours all feature direct hotel pickup and drop off from your Las Vegas strip hotel. Tickets include early morning breakfast, fantastic service, and safe and steady drivers, making it a luxury canyon tour that will be back by the end of the day.
We are a Las Vegas locally owned and operated tour company that offers Grand Canyon tours that also visit some of the region's unmissable destinations like Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Seven Magic Mountains, Hoover Dam, national parks, and Horseshoe Bend.
What Do Our Grand Canyon Tours Involve?
Our mission is to give you the best Grand Canyon experience possible when joining one of our canyon park tours. Planning a Grand Canyon Trip from Las Vegas? We have you covered.
You know all those discount bus tours being pushed on the Las Vegas Strip? Yeah, we are the opposite of those canyon bus tours. Our tour vans give you a more relaxed and personal canyon experience. Many of the best locations at the Grand Canyon are off limits to the bus tours, so the only way to see those South rim or West rim canyon views is to drive yourself or take a small group tour from Las Vegas.
Joining us on an overnight trip to the South Rim? We will take you to 3 spread out overlooks of the canyon: Yavapai Point, Grandview Point, and Lipan Point. All 3 of these canyon points are off limits to bus tours. They are fantastic overlooks on the South rim of the canyon not to be missed. The canyon South Rim also offers beautiful trails, such as the Bright Angel Trail. While visiting the South Rim, you can visit the national Grand Canyon park.
If visiting the West Rim, we give you a full 3 hours to explore this stunning section of the canyon, more than any other canyon tour from Las Vegas offers.
When visiting the West Rim, do you dare step out onto the Grand Canyon Skywalk?
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is arguably one of the most fun and intense ways to see the canyon. You'll be able to walk out onto a glass horseshoe-shaped deck that extends out 70 feet over the canyon, and you’ll be able to look straight down through the glass to the canyon floor 4000 feet below! That's over 3x the height of the glass floor on the observation deck of the Willis Tower in Chicago, which is at a height of 1353 ft. Without a doubt the Grand Canyon observation deck is the highest glass floor in the world. Don't worry about its strength though, you'll be completely safe while viewing the canyon floor. That's because the canyon Skywalk is constructed with enough steel to hold the weight of seventy fully loaded jumbo jets.
Beyond the canyon observation deck, many people do not realize that the West Rim isn’t actually a part of Grand Canyon National Park. This portion of the park and its sights are owned by the Hualapai Native Americans. That's right, you are standing on their reservation.

Below, we've answered some of the most popular questions about Grand Canyon tours, from booking a trip with accessible hiking routes to where to see the Grand Canyon's iconic panoramas and advice on exploring the Canyon West Rim.
Absolutely–you can visit the Canyon Visitor Center by bus or book a Grand Canyon South tour with gentler hiking routes. There is also a state-of-the-art IMAX theater which you can visit before a tour along the Canyon South Rim or as part of your travel experience without needing to navigate the Canyon's more demanding trails.
Our tours by van (rather than bus) from Las Vegas include breakfast, drinks, and snacks–but we'd suggest you bring plenty of extra water if you plan to hike the Bright Angel Trail. The Grand Canyon has a variety of diverse routes, with this option an uphill outward climb but an easier return route.
If you hike up the Grand Canyon Bright Angel Trail on a one-day bus trip, we'd advise you to head for the turnaround trail at the three-mile mark, so you'll be back in plenty of time for the bus departure back to Las Vegas.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a great part of a tour along the West of the park, with drop-off bus routes and a knowledgeable local guide. The glass sky bridge is the top attraction in the west and has over a million annual visitors; it's also one of the easiest parts of the Grand Canyon to visit from Las Vegas, given its proximity on the West Rim.
The Grand Canyon South has around twenty-four special viewpoints overlooking the Colorado River and is roughly five hours from Las Vegas. Hikers often pick the Canyon South Rim for the diverse trails.
If you want to visit the Skywalk, the Grand Canyon West is your best bet. Additionally, Havasu Canyon is between the Grand Canyon West and South Rims, dotted with beautiful waterfalls, including the New Navajo Falls. The drawback is that Havasu can't be reached by bus–you must travel by horseback, helicopter, or on foot.
The highlights for travelers on our tours from Las Vegas include Mather Point along the Canyon South Rim, Yavapai Point along the walking trail, or Bright Angel Lodge, as some of the best places to capture astonishing views into and across the Canyon.
Several excellent hotels and lodges dotted around the Grand Canyon national park offer a range of accommodation styles–we can recommend the most suitable options depending on whether you wish to stay in the west or south.
Along the Grand Canyon South, you can stay at the El Tovar, which first opened in 1905 and has outstanding reviews, or opt for the two-star Kachina Lodge for a laid-back extended stay if you'd like more time than is offered through day trip tours from Las Vegas.
