In the morning, guests will be picked up at their motels to begin this tour. Today, we will drive to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, where we will see sights such as Eagle Point and the Skywalk Glass Bridge. In addition, we be able to take an optional helicopter and boat tour to fully experience the canyon. At the end of the day, we will return top Las Vegas to bring an end to the tour. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
Considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon was carved over 17 million years by the Colorado River. This breathtaking, 18-mile-long canyon has been stunning visitors for hundreds of years.
Located just 2 hours from nearby Las Vegas, Nevada, Grand Canyon West boasts the newest visitor attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Its plexiglass floor extends 70 feet over the edge of the Canyon's rim, allowing visitors to look straight down to the canyon floor 4,000 feet below. (Lunch included in admission)
Admission (Included): Adult $62; Child $62
Eagle Point is one of the main attractions of the Grand Canyon West Rim. The area features the Skywalk Glass Bridge, and also a "Native American Village" walking tour as well as live performances and demonstrations by tribe members.
This scenic viewpoint gets its name from the Bat Cave Mine it overlooks. Visitors can enjoy the panoramic views of the Grand Canyon as well as learn the history of the old mine, parts of which still stand today.
The Glass Bridge Glass Bridge suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River on the very edge of the Grand Canyon West Rim. It can withstand the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes (more that 71 million pounds).
These exciting tours from the West Rim descend directly into the Grand Canyon. They combine the thrill of a helicopter and the speed of a pontoon boat to form an unforgettable up-close experience with the magnificent Grand Canyon.

We joined the tour last minute, two days before departure date. TakeTours customer service puts in effort to confirm the next day on Sunday for Monday's tour. Online live chat ladies were very helpful. Thumbs up!
We were picked up at the hotel lobby slightly later than planned by about 15-20 minutes at 6:30p.m. We left Las Vegas, heading to Grand Canyon about 7:30a.m. Our tour guide, Brenden, was very funny. He made the entire 3.5 hour journey not so boring. We stopped by Hoover Dam for only 5 minutes as the wind was too strong. We reached West Rim at 10:30a.m. We had 3.5 hours to wander around by ourselves. Not bad! We walked on the Skywalk for 20 minutes, and continued with other attraction points. Lunch was provided, and was surprisingly good food. Busy Monday though; queue was long, and by the time it was our turn, there were no more hot cookies. :( We reached Las Vegas at 6p.m. Efficient tour. :) Overall, was a great experience. Don't forget tip for the driver/tour guide, ours was $8-10 per person.
I recommend this tour!

we were happy with this tour and our driver/tour guide should be credited for it. He made the 3hr ride interesting for us, he gave tips and told us about Boulder City, Hover Dam, etc. But just like the others, i think its quite pricey for a 10hr tour.

We had great time ... They are so good with time, infact we missed to catch the bus at starting point. But we called and they gave correct details and waited for us in the next pickup point.
