What To Expect

This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with reclining seats, panoramic windows and onboard restroom. Then make the trek east, first stopping at the Hoover Dam bypass bridge for a great photo opportunity, a stop for breakfast (included) and then driving through Joshua Tree forests and the Mojave Desert to the Grand Canyon.

Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy four (4) hours of self-guided exploring at the West Rim. Hike to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in tour price). There are many options and a variety of exciting possibilities.

Secondly, there's a stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor.

Management-Driver-Client communication issues
Bonnie_W, Jan 2023
Trip was great, I was give incorrect meeting time, driver called, I was enroute to assigned meeting place, he said he would not wait but if I could get to last hotel meeting place in 10 minutes I would be able to ride the tour bus, or I could call an Uber. I had to turn and RUN in the opposite direction to get to the bus just before he left. This was poor communication from company and driver. The scheduled pickup time I was 0630, driver stated p/u time was 6:15. 15 minutes is a long time when you are going from hotel to hotel to catch your tour bus Not Happy with services.

INGI_P, Jan 2023
Ticketing is not good. I bought the ticket included in tour and Skywalk. But they had only the tickets for tour. So many people waited changing the tickets. We had 4 hours to tour but that made it spend more than 1 hour to change the ticket. They had to prepare that in advance before that day.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear INGI_P, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and I want to extend our sincere apologies for the confusion and the resulting inconveniences you experienced as a result of the ticket snafu. We make every effort to make sure that every tour goes seamlessly, and we are indeed sorry that this was not your experience. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service

Great, but…..
Belinda_H, Dec 2022
Very nice trip. However we didn’t stop at the Hoover damn bridge which was part of our tour. Also the trip advertised for 3 stops at the Grand Canyon but at the 3rd stop a bus didn’t come for almost an hour to come get us to take us to the terminal. This caused us to be late!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Belinda, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and I would like to apologize for the missed Hoover Dam photo op. Regarding the delays with the West Rim shuttle system, once you are inside the Grand Canyon West area everything is handled by the Hualapai Nation, the native American tribe on whose land the West Rim is a part of, yet we are sorry this affected your day. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service.
Family Trip To Grand Canyon West
GuangHwang_Y, Dec 2022
My trip started at the hotel pick up. We proceeded to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, followed by a stop over at a gas station for "Sub-way" breakfast! Upon arriving at Grand Canyon West, we took the shuttle to Eagle Point and did the Skywalk. Had a quick lunch in the restaurant and moved on to Guano Point. The view at Guano Point was spectacular! My family enjoyed this trip very much! Kudos to our driver/tour guide, ensuring our safety throughout the whole trip!

A good tour
Tonya_D, Dec 2022
The bus driver to the Grand Canyon was friendly and caring. I wish I could remember her name. She made sure everyone was ok and made sure no one was left behind. She was a good tour guide as well. The tour is planned out well. I loved it. The walking and stairs was challenging, but I made it.

Dissatisfied
Rajendra_C, Dec 2022
We came from the UK and upgraded to heli/boat tour but when we got to the canyon and asked the tour operator for tickets to the heli/boat they said we were not booked and there was nothing they could do. That was going to be the highlight of our tour. Still not sorted.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Rajendr, Thank you for choosing Gray Line and we are sorry that there was confusion about which tour you had booked through Viator. We will be working with Viator to figure out exactly what went wrong and someone will be back in contact with you. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service
The Grand Canyon is...
Melissa_S, Dec 2022
The Grand Canyon is breathtaking from any angle. The tribal members who run the west rim were gracious and helpful. The breakfast provided was much better than I expected. Our bus driver was memorable. He definitely knew is stuff and was funny and kind. But Gray Line Tours, PLEASE buy this man a headset microphone so he can keep both hands on the wheel. I cannot emphasize this enough. Holding a microphone, holding the steering wheel, and navigating traffic all at the same time was sketchy at times. Overall, still a great trip.

Trip was ok. Chris is a nice Chap. However, breakfast voucher wasn’t provided. Couldn’t get Lunch as the Sky restaurant doesn’t have anything vegan and lunch box was never provided.

Dear Aarthi_K, Thank you for being a Gray Line customer and I want to apologize for the missing breakfast voucher, Chris should have seen to this for you. We will bring your Vegan issue to the Hualapai Nation, the native American tribe that runs Grand Canyon West on their sovereign land reservations. They do have a vegetarian item, but we will be sure to discuss with them the need for vegan items. In closing, I want to say that it was nice to hear that Chris was a "nice chap" and I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service
