The Grand Canyon, one of the world's most striking natural wonders, attracts more than five million visitors every year. Seeing the breathtaking views of changing rock layers formed over millions of years is an experience you will never forget. Beyond its majestic views from the rim, the Grand Canyon is unimaginably beautiful as you go down one mile to the bottom of the canyon.
Before planning your trip, figure out from what vantage point you would like to explore the Grand Canyon—from the rim, the canyon floor, or both for a complete adventure.
From there, you can narrow down your choices by selecting a tour that covers the areas you want to visit. MaxTour has the best group tours to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas–these include direct pickup and drop off to your hotel, prepared breakfast, snacks and drinks, five-star quality service, and fun-filled, memorable experiences. You can even book a Grand Canyon half-day tour if that fits your schedule best.
A few highlights of MaxTour trips to the scenic Grand Canyon and other nearby destinations are mentioned below.
By the Rim
If a one-day tour is what you are looking for, then a trip to the rim is perfect for you. It’s the most accessible spot at the Grand Canyon and takes two to four hours to drive from Las Vegas, depending on which side of the canyon you want to go.
Grand Canyon West Rim
A trip to the West Rim is an opportunity to cross off a few adrenaline-rush activities from your bucket list. Choose to venture on a skywalk hovering 4,000 feet above the canyon floor, watch an exciting film in the IMAX theaters, or get immersed into the Hualapai Tribe culture.
Seven Magic Mountains
The famous art installation of large, colorful stones stacked over thirty feet high is a place you don't want to pass up. The exhibition opened in 2016 and was intended to be temporary, but its popularity has made it a main attraction for travelers.
The iconic American feat of engineering was built in the 1930s during The Great Depression. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as being a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark and a designated National Historic Landmark.
Beyond the Canyon Floor
If you’re up for an adventure and want to spend more time in the canyon, take a one-day tour to Antelope Canyon or a two- or three-day tour to see more natural landmarks in the area.
With walls of smooth sandstone, this picturesque slot canyon is protected by the Navajo Reservation and can only be visited with an authorized tour, such as MaxTour. It is well known for its steep walls and shifting rays of light unlike anything you have seen before.
Bryce Canyon National Park
This national park offers clear, wide-open skies with the largest collection of hoodoos (tall, thin towers of rock formed by erosion) in the world. It is a magical place for hiking, stargazing, camping, horseback riding, and scenic drives with the family.
Zion National National Park
Considered by many to be the crown jewel of Utah, Zion is filled with skyscraping rainbow-colored rock formations, enchanting light reflections from deep twisting canyons, and the rushing sound of the Virgin River.
