Why We Love This Tour

“The South Rim is my favorite part of the Grand Canyon. It was possible to walk a little bit away from the main lodge and really just soak up how enormous the canyon is, and how small I felt, standing on the edge of it. I would definitely recommend taking a small-group tour. Having a guide that can actually answer your questions and interact with the whole group really makes a trip like this special and unique.”

Overview

Grand Canyon South Rim Small Group Tour

After departing Las Vegas, guests will travel through the Mojave Desert and over the Colorado River on their way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Mojave Desert is characterized by its signature plant, the Joshua Tree, and plays host to arguably to hottest place on Earth. To beat the heat, we will be traveling over the mighty Colorado River on the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and pass by Route 66, the “Main Street of America”.Before arriving to the Widest and Deepest part of the Grand Canyon National Park, the tour will stop in Historic Williams Arizona. With the Grand Canyon Railway and the intersection of Route 66, this small town is a reminder of the American west from the 1950s. During your three hours in the Grand Canyon National Park, you will have opportunities to walk along the rim, shop, capture an unlimited amount of photographs, or enjoy your lunch and relax with the best seat in the house. Your guide will ensure you get the best views from Mather Point and Yavapai Point. Guests will enjoy a photo stop at Hoover Dam National Historic Landmark on their return trip to Las Vegas.

Helicopter

You can add tickets to fly above the Grand Canyon South Rim to your tour*!

Enjoy a 45 minute helicopter tour of the widest and deepest portion of the Grand Canyon. This 80 mile flight showcases canyons, fault lines and towering rock formations that are otherwise missed by many guests! Those views include Marble Canyon, Pointe Imperial, Little Colorado River, the Dragon Corridor, and of course the North Rim. While on the Helicopter Tour, you will be treated to views only seen by less than 10% of all visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park.

*Tickets are an additional $229 for all ages and are not included in the base tour price.

Felt Like Friends Rather than Customers

I wanted to send a quick note to express my gratitude for the superb service of our tour guide driver James on the tour to The Grand Canyon. I took my mother on a post-mother’s day vacation to Las Vegas and I am so happy that I decided to use your company! James made the trip exciting. He was very knowledgeable about the city and was very entertaining the entire bus ride. He made everyone laugh. His warm, playful spirit was infectious and made all the passengers feel like we were friends rather than customers. We really had a great time and appreciate his excellent customer service! He made my mother very happy and she said “it was the best tour she’s ever been on!”. I will recommend your tours to all of my friends and family that are planning to visit Las Vegas! THANK YOU!
