The Drive To The West Rim From Las Vegas
To begin the morning, we provide you with a delicious breakfast snack to enjoy on the way. Your first destination of the day will be about halfway to the canyon. You will enjoy a 1 hour stop just off of Route 66 at the historic Grand Canyon Caverns. Here, you will be able to get your fresh deli lunch, relax, or explore further with a guided 40-minute tour of the caverns. This underground tour takes you into the amazing natural caverns to see their incredible features and learn about their history and formation. Once this stop is complete, you will board your luxury bus again to complete the drive to the West Rim.
Arriving At The West Rim
Once you arrive at the Grand Canyon West Rim you will be dropped at the Welcome Center. Your entry fee to Grand Canyon West is included in the price of your tour package. We do not charge any additional taxes or fees like other companies do. Please be aware that the price for admission to the Skywalk, however, is NOT included in our tour. Skywalk entry is optional and is available to purchase for $33 upon checkout when booking your tour, or at the West Rim Welcome Center. Your walking tour guide is also able to upgrade your reservations to include Skywalk tickets at any time during the trip to the West Rim
Taking The West Rim Shuttle
From there, you can catch the free hop on/ hop off shuttle that will transport you to Eagle Point, where the famous glass Skywalk Bridge is located, and to Guano Point. You will ride the shuttle with your tour guide to the first lookout, Eagle Point. The incredible view of the eagle shaped rock formation is something that can only be truly appreciated in person. At Eagle Point there is a Native American Indian Village which demonstrates some living dwellings used by Native American tribes in times of old. The entire Grand Canyon West Rim is located on the Hualapai Indian Reservation and is owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe. The Skywalk Bridge and Skywalk gift shop are also located at Eagle Point.
The next stop is Guano Point, which is often seen in movies. The views at this point are completely different than Eagle Point, but maybe even more impressive. If capable to walk it, the dirt trail along the edge at Guano Point provides for spectacular views from different angles. Featuring photo opportunities your walking tour guide will point out that will amaze you.
The Drive From Grand Canyon West Rim To Las Vegas
At the end of the tour, the group will return to the Welcome Center. From there, you will head back to Las Vegas from the Grand Canyon. For one final incredible memory on the return drive, keep your eyes open and enjoy the breathtaking views of Hoover Dam as you drive over the Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge at night. Lastly, you will see fabulous Las Vegas illuminated against the night sky up as you descend into the valley.
