Grand Canyon Bus Tour

One way you can enjoy the beauty of the Grand Canyon is by taking a bus tour. There are plenty of them to choose from. Las Vegas is a popular location from which many tour buses depart. One such tour is the South Rim Bus Tour by Look Tours which departs from Vegas and takes around fifteen hours from start to finish. This tour includes expert narration, park entry fees, lunch and a guided tour of the park. The motor coach on which you will travel is comfortable and modern with a restroom on board. On the way to the canyon you will get to stop for photos at Hoover Dam and Lake Mead Lookout.



You will spend around three hours at the Grand Canyon taking this tour. Driving time is around four hours each way on average. Once you reach the South Rim park, you will have lunch at the National Geographic Visitor Center which also offers sights and souvenirs. You'll get to see the photo gallery, which includes informative and entertaining exhibits. You will learn about John Wesley, the brave Civil War veteran who explored the canyon with only one arm. You will also learn more about the Native American tribes who once called the caves of the canyon their home.

Of course, the highlight of this trip is the actual tour of the canyon itself. On a South Rim tour you'll get to see Yavapai Point, which provides you an amazing view of the stunning Colorado River. The group will be provided free time to walk around the area and take photographs. You can never take too many pictures of the Grand Canyon, so take a long extra batteries and memory storage or film depending on what kind of camera you have. Even if you are an amateur photographer you will find it easy to take a spectacular picture of the canyon because it is so beautiful.

Anyone planning to spend time in Las Vegas should consider taking a Grand Canyon bus tour. The Grand Canyon is a stunning natural wonder that everyone should have the privilege of seeing in person. The cost for bus tours to the canyon vary depending on the tour company and details of the tour. For a tour like the one described above, you can expect to pay an average of $100 per person which includes most everything you'll need during your trip. This is a small price to pay for the experience of a lifetime!
