Adventure awaits with this coach bus tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim. Once you board the bus from your Vegas hotel, you will enjoy a narrated drive to the Hoover Dam, a 725 foot engineering wonder that has been part of the southwest landscape since 1935. There’s a photo opportunity at the overlook and then you will drive over the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge to continue towards the Grand Canyon. This will include passing through Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Black Canyon, along with the Joshua Tree Forest, which is 900 years old.
Upon arriving at the West Rim, Indians of the Hualapai Nation will greet you. Their shuttle takes you to three points: Eagle Point, Cowboy Town, and Guano Point. A walking tour will take you to the amphitheater with live performances by Native Americans throughout the day as well as through many of the authentic dwellings. When you are at Guano Point, you might also want to shop the various crafts and jewelry made by women of the Hopi and Navajo nations.
You will also have the pleasure of crossing over the glass range that towers 4000 feet above the floor of the Grand Canyon. This is one of the highlights of the trip, and you will be able to see Eagle Rock from the right and Colorado River from the left.
