What To Expect

Receive an early-morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and then travel through the desert to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, admiring the scenery of 900-year old Joshua Trees while en route.

When you arrive at the West Rim receive an included hop-on, hop-of sightseeing bus ticket which allows you to explore the canyon’s amazing scenery at your own pace. Spend the next 3 hours exploring however you like.

The bus will travel first to Eagle Point, home of a U-shaped glass “Skywalk” that extends out over the canyon rim.

Eagle Point is also the site of a Native American village where you can visit tribal homes, observe traditional Indian dances in the amphitheater.

Hop back on your bus and head to Guano Point, another overlook boasting striking views over the Colorado River and canyon below. Take a hike on the trail following the canyon edge, or head to a nearby eatery to enjoy a meal (own expense if option not selected).

At the end of your Grand Canyon exploration, receive a ride back to your Las Vegas hotel.

Book the Grand Canyon West Rim tour with guide Ken from Sweets
Deborah_W, Jan 2023
The trip was seamless and interesting throughout our day thanks to our informative and comedic tour guide Ken ... and accompanied by driver Patrick. This is the second time I have been on the Grand Canyon West Rim tour with Ken as the guide. His 18 years of immersion in all things Las Vegas made the miles between Las Vegas and our destination go by quickly. The big tour bus was very comfortable and the scenery did not disappoint. I would definitely go again.
A bucket list trip
Harmit_M, Jan 2023
Just an amazing trip. Hotel pickup was super convenient (6:30 am pickup), driver (Charles) was knowledgeable, funny, but also was quiet at parts of the trip where we just could enjoy the amazing scenery. The two stops at the West Rim are also great but for different reasons- I recommend getting the Skypass and meal option. The Skypass is amazing and the views from the Eagle Point restaurant (recommend over Guano point restaurant, you can pick either in the package) were also amazing. We were back at our hotel by 6 pm (could see a show that evening) having had a truly memorable day.
Vanessa_C, Jan 2023
The driver was extremely knowledgeable about every mile of the trip. He provided great insight of the past and present of each city and sites.
A MUST when you are in Las Vegas!
Eugenia_P, Jan 2023
A not to be missed experience! Everything was perfect, from the pick up from our hotel, to the knowledgeable driver/guide, and the amazing sites we got to see (Hoover Dam, Joshua tree forest, The West Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Sky Walk), it was worth every penny. We highly recommend this trip!
Worth it!
Lynette_V, Jan 2023
I loved the second viewpoint where you could actually walk and climb around! The trip was long off you're one of the first pickups. Might be worth a lyft to the Luxor so you're not on the bus an hour before even leaving.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide Charles
Kelly_J, Jan 2023
What an amazing trip very well organised excellent tour guide Charles who from start to finish gave us so much information throughout the journey. Loved his sense of humour and he was a true gentleman.
Great tour to the amazing Grand Canyon
Antoine_B, Jan 2023
Grand Canyon is an amazing place to discover quite close to Las Vegas. The bus ride is long but at the end, viewpoints are really impressive. We have all taken fantastic photos. Our driver was great and our guide very fun, thank you for this journey!
Awesome Experience at the West Rim
Mary_L, Jan 2023
It was unbelievable to see the rock formations at the Grand Canyon. It was nice to see from different vantage points starting from Hualapai Point, next to Eagle Point where you can see the formation in the shape like an eagle flying and last point was Guano Point where you can view the canyon 360 degrees. Our tour was well organized and ran smoothly and the driver Charles was very nice. He was the tour guide at the same time. I would say that this tour is worth the price and I can recommend it to others. I would rather join the tour than drive if it just two of us.
Charles was a great...
Jillian_M, Jan 2023
Charles was a great driver - but not really a great tour guide. However, He did not really educate us or give us enough history or background on the Grand Canyon. There should be a driver AND also someone who is highly educated about the geography, surroundings, etc.. I really did not learn much in that regard.
Grand Canyon excursion
Matthew_V, Jan 2023
Had a fabulous day to Grand Canyon. Sky walk is a must. The guide was great and informative. Breakfast was provided which was a lovely touch.
Great views, excellent service
david_c, Jan 2023
Great views love the service. The picture at the Eagle rim is a joke. They take you to images and they paste in another background picture; that is the only negative part that I didn't like. The rest love it
Viator & Sweetours are the combo for any trips from Vegas.
Michael_J, Dec 2022
Reached out to Viator at the last minter when our other booking got cancelled for unknown reasons!! I'm glad that cancellation happened, and experience with Viator right from the start of the booking, and throughout our trip journey was very applaudable. Combination of Viator & Sweetours are the trustworthy destination for your Grand Canyon Trip.
Great trip
Carol_C, Dec 2022
Our bus driver Melissa was just outstanding, she explained our trip from the first minute to last!! I will add I did add the lunch package, but the lines were SO long, I really mean long so I had to skip my paid for lunch The Grand Canyon and Hoover Damn just amazing beauties

A beautiful giant hole in middle of nowhere.
prateek_s, Dec 2022
Sweettours was amazing. Driver Mellisa was really accommodating and explained everything so well. Thanks
The views were amazing. ...
Kathy_C, Dec 2022
The views were amazing. The only thing I would recommend is to change the photo op site at Hoover Dam. There are so many fantastic views there but the place where the bus stops for a photo op is one of the least impressive
Great tour
Sana_R, Dec 2022
The tour was really nice - tour guide was super nice and made it enjoyable! Everything was according to schedule as well!
It was all so beautiful....

Grand Canyon Escape
Teh_T, Dec 2022
Great guide Paul and driving from Patrick to make this a memorable experience for our Family. Will recommend it to anyone interested in a one day tour from Las Vegas as it’s not too tiring and we were back in Vegas with plenty of time for evening plans.
