Las Vegas - Hoover Dam - Grand Canyon South Rim

Summary of The Day: This one-day tour will take you to Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Pick-up service is available at all major hotels on the Strip and downtown Las Vegas. Before we depart you will be served a light breakfast. Your driver will be your guide for the remainder of the trip.

We'll stop at several places so that you can rest your legs and take photos of the incredible scenery along the way. You'll get the opportunity to see Hoover Dam up-close. We'll also make a rest stop in Kingman, Arizona, where you can purchase souvenirs as well as food and drink.

Once inside Grand Canyon National Park we'll head straight to Bright Angel Lodge right on the edge. From there you can take the free shuttle buses to several lookouts including Mather Point, Yavapai and many others. The three hours allotted to the Grand Canyon also gives you ample time to walk the 2.5-mile Rim Trail.

Following our grand tour of Grand Canyon South Rim, we'll board the motorcoach and head back to Las Vegas, making a second rest stop in Kingman. On the way back you'll get to see Hoover Dam and Las Vegas lit up at night.
