Las Vegas – Hoover Dam – Route 66 -Grand Canyon South Rim – Las Vegas
Stare back on over two billion years of unbelievable history revealed by the mighty forces of the Colorado River as it courses through the depth defying ravines that make up the splendor of the Grand Canyon. This national treasure, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, draws visitors from around the globe to witness its intricate and colorful landscape and overwhelming size. Sunrise and sunsets cast magnificent color displays of red and purple upon the canyon walls and rock layers which record much of the early geologic history of the North American continent and in specific, the Southwest USA. The Grand Canyon is truly a breath taking spectacle.

Grand Canyon Overnight Camping Tour (2-Day Tour from Las Vegas)
Grand Canyon Overnight Camping Tour
This tour was the best! Me and my friend did a Grand Canyon Overnight Tour for 2 days. It was amazing! We went there by a van, stopped at Hoover Dam on our way, stopped at Historic Route 66 on our way back, did a helicopter tour over the Canyon, and still had plenty of time to do walks around (and in) the Canyon.
Our guide was awesome! During our long way to the South Rim he told us about Las Vegas, about Hoover Dam, lots of history and geology about the Canyon and how it was "made", stories about wild animals. He knows a lot about South West and you can ask him anything. I learnt so much new.
In the evening, we sat by fire near Grand Canyon, which was also a super nice experience with some beer, marshmallow cooking and ghost stories. It was so much fun.
I would suggest this tour to anyone! It's not just a very comfortable way to see great nature but also you will learn lots of things in a very interesting and funny way!
