Explore the West Rim of the Grand Canon on a full-day tour from Las Vegas. Travel in a comfortable vehicle with a small group, making a short pit stop at the Hoover Dam. At the canyon, you’ll ride a shuttle to two of the park’s most well-known landmarks—Eagle Point and Guano Point—in order to maximize your time on the ground.

Great trip! Our tour...
Gayle_L, Mar 2023
Great trip! Our tour guide Jamie was very organized and knowledgeable. She shared a lot of great info along the way. The weather was a little rainy but skies cleared off and on. Highly recommend using the tour to see the canyon. It was relaxing and easy!
Had a Grand time!

Seeing the Canyon was Amazing! Loved this tour, our tour guide and driver Derek was awesome and very knowledgeable. The trip had enough bathroom breaks and didn't feel rushed.
Worth doing

Unfortunately the small tour was cancelled due to lack of numbers, however I was able to go onto the coach tour. The bus picking me up was quite late and took a while to get on the road after several pick ups. However the tour it self was great, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, overall a great day
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Hello, Thank you for the feedback, we do apologize that the VIP Small Group was canceled that day! Pick-ups can be tricky, but we are glad to hear the trip itself made up for it! We appreciate you choosing us to be your tour provider!

West Rim Grand Canyon

I booked a luxury small group tour to Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. Viator sent me an email the morning before trip to state that the small group tour was cancelled due to maintenance. They offered me 2 seats in front of a big luxury bus. I accepted since I didn’t want to miss the experience. When we arrived at Grand Canyon West the tour was divided in three groups. One for tour and skywalk, one for tour and helicopter and the other was a walking tour which was us. The walking tour was told to wait till the helicopter tour was situated. This took a half hour. We were outside freezing. It was about 53 degrees with high winds. Then once that was completed we went on a shuttle and got off and were told we had to wait for the people attending the skywalk. That took another half hour. Again, we were freezing standing around waiting. The grand Canyon West is beautiful, I just wish the tour was run more efficiently.
Good tour but not the one we wanted to take read on

Unfortunately because of a mechanical issue we did not get to go on small group tour we were told the day before the small group vehicle was not available and we had to go on the regular group tour ...that had a very nice guide and bus driver and if you want to go on a group tour it was a good tour but it was not the experience we were looking for.
