Labor Day is almost here, so it's time to finalize your plans for the holiday. One great idea is to take a trip to the Grand Canyon, but if you want to make that, you need to make your reservations soon because the bus tours are so popular they sell out in advance.
A Scenic Tour That Lasts All Day
Vegas bus tours are available to the South Rim and the West Rim, and they depart early every morning. These tours provide you with a full day of fun, and you should expect to be gone from 7 am-9pm for the tour. It's a good idea to reserve the entire day for the tour and not make any definite plans for a show or dinner the same evening.
No matter which rim you visit, your bus will take you over Hoover Dam and past Lake Mead along the way. That's just a small taste of the amazing sights you'll get to see when you take a bus tour. The tour bus offers very comfortable seating, restrooms, and climate control, so you will be comfortable all during your trip.
The West Rim is a highly recommended destination choice, and one of the reasons is because the Skywalk is located there, and you do not want to miss walking out 70 feet beyond the rim and standing 4000 feet above the Canyon floor on a floor of glass.
One of the bus tours, you'll get to see major landmarks in the Canyon and there will be plenty of photo ops and chances to explore.
The Difference In Basic And Deluxe Tours
When you book a West Rim bus tour, you'll get to choose between a basic or deluxe option. The basic tour is ideal if you just want to ride to the West Rim and then be left on your own to explore. Deluxe tours give you the option to book features ahead of time such as a helicopter descent to the Canyon floor, a float tour along the river, and VIP tickets to the Skywalk. VIP Skywalk tickets are a good choice because that way you get to cut in line and save time, which gives you extra time to explore around the rim.
Because the South Rim is farther away, your bus ride will be longer, and you'll have less free time to spend on the rim. You'll have about three hours to explore, which is plenty of time to take a helicopter tour of the rim. Your helicopter flies over to the North Rim and circles back to the South Rim, so you'll get to see some notable landmarks as well as beautiful wilderness scenery.
Some Helpful Tips
These bus tours are all-inclusive, so there are no surprise fees. This makes it easy to plan your vacation budget since the price you see online is the exact and final price you pay. Plus, lunch comes with your tour.
Remember, it is hot during the summer months in the Canyon. Protect yourself from the sun with sun block, sunglasses, a hat, and light clothing, however, the bus will be air conditioned, so bring a sweater to avoid getting chilly during your ride.
