Las Vegas - (A) South Grand Canyon - Las Vegas / (B) West Grand Canyon - Hoover Dam - Las Vegas
Option (A) In the morning, the bus tour will take you explore one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World-Grand Canyon National Park. The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River in Arizona and is one of the oldest national parks in the United States. Snaking along its floor are 277 miles of the Colorado River, which has carved the canyon over the past six million years and exposed rocks up to two billion years old-half the age of the Earth. In the afternoon you will return to Las Vegas for an optional show.
(Option A *Mandatory Admission $50 to Grand Canyon South Rim )
Option (B) In the morning, the bus tour will explore the Grand Canyon West Rim. Unlike the South and North Rim, Grand Canyon West is not part of the Grand Canyon National Park. It is located on the Hualapai Indian Reservation at the western Grand Canyon corridor. The Hualapai Indian Tribe has constructed a tourist attraction that they have named "The West Rim of the Grand Canyon". You will have the option to walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk which is a glass bridge that extends out into open space from the canyon edge. There is nothing but glass under your feet and it feels like walking out into "air" suspended 4,000 feet above the canyon floor and the Colorado River. It is an amazing sensation with 360 degree, incredible views. You may also take an optional helicopter or boat tour to see the true beauty of the Grand Canyon. You will then visit Hoover Dam which is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the states of Arizona and Nevada. When it was completed in 1936, it was both the worlds largest electric-power generating station and the worlds largest concrete structure.
(Option B tour price does not include West Grand Canyon+Lunch $90)
