Itinerary

Day 1
Home Town - Las Vegas

In the evening you can take an optional night tour to see how Las Vegas comes to life after dark. You will also have the chance to enjoy the world-famous Fountains of Bellagio. This is an 8 acre artificial lake between the building and the Strip which houses a large dancing water fountain synchronized to music of opera, classical and Broadway tunes.

Day 2
Grand Canyon - Hoover Dam / Antelope Canyon - Horseshoe Bend

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 $90 to Grand Canyon South Rim + Lunch) 

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 *Mandatory Admission $90 to Grand Canyon West Rim + Lunch)

Option (C) In the morning, we will traveling across the Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend, which is one of the world's ten photography site. Then we will travel across Glen Canyon Dam of North America's second largest man-made lake, Lake Mead. We'll then return to Las Vegas. Las Vegas is constantly changing and always exciting. Take an optional city tour of Las Vegas and explore the "Entertainment Capital of the World" or attend one of the unique shows that are exclusively performed in Las Vegas.
