Going to Las Vegas for the Valentine’s holiday? Then consider taking a Grand Canyon bus tour. These trips leave once a day in the a.m. and go to the West Rim and the South Rim. But book early as seats sell out quickly.
Buses leave Vegas about 7 am, and you’ll need to allot an entire day for the tour. You’ll see plenty of exciting things on the way to the Canyon, including the Hoover Dam, and your bus will probably even make a short stop there so you can take photos. If the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead grab your interest, you may want to book another day long tour on another day to explore them more fully.
The Grand Canyon West Rim
You have several options when it comes to touring the West Rim. The bus gets you to the West Rim, and from there you can add on the adventures you want to have. Some popular things to do include a scenic float trip on the Colorado River and a thrilling helicopter descent to the Canyon floor.
Grand Canyon South Rim Tours
South Rim tours come with a lot of options too. You can stick with a bus tour and view the rim from the ground or you can add on a helicopter tour and see the wilderness area from the air. A helicopter tour gives you thirty minutes of air time to view the scenery from the South Rim to the North Rim.
No Hidden Fees
Bus tours are budget friendly. Out of all the Canyon tours available, a bus tour is the most affordable, yet you still have the option to add on other activities that cost more such as VIP passes to the Skywalk or a helicopter flight.
The days on and around Valentine’s Day, are some of the busiest of the year. This means that you will have to book early, and I recommend booking at least two weeks in advance. This will ensure that your seats are locked in. When you book online, you will get the best deals, just make sure that you complete your purchase with a credit card so that you can take advantage of the lower prices.
A bus tour is a unique and fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The Canyon is a beautiful place filled with mystery, adventure, and even romance. Don’t forget to add on exciting adventures like a helicopter flight from the South Rim to the North Rim and back, or a helicopter descent to the Canyon floor at the West Rim. It’s hard to make a wrong choice since all the tour option are fun, just make sure your tour doesn’t sell out first, be sure to book it online with your credit card to lock in your seats and get the lowest price. Vegas is filled with a lot of beautiful sights, but none of them are quite as grand as those you’ll see on your tour of the Canyon!
