Bus tours take a whole day, and depart at 7AM. On the way to the Canyon you will stop off at the Hoover Dam, which offers a great photo opportunity at this famous landmark. You could even take another full-day tour on a different date, if you want to fully explore the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
The Grand Canyon West Rim
The West Rim is closes to Vegas and takes only 2.5 hours to reach. It's situated on the Hualapai Indian Reservation and is home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, the world-famous glass bridge that lets you walk up to 70 feet over the edge until you are standing 4k feet over the bottom.
There's a basic, no-frills West Rim tour that basically gets you to the Park so you can explore it at your own pace. Then there are the more deluxe packages that come with a helicopter ride to the bottom or a boat trip down the Colorado River.
Just like at the West Rim, you can choose from basic or more inclusive packages. The basic bus tour will have you exploring the area from the ground, and there are also helicopter tours available. The 30 minute helicopter will take you all the way to the remote North Rim, and back again.
No Hidden Fees
These bus tours are fixed-cost packages and come with everything, including all taxes, fees, fuel surcharges, lunch and free hotel pick up and drop off, guide service and a light breakfast. Vegetarian meals are available upon request.
These tours are great for budget travelers and are the cheapest way to get to and from the National Park. However, to ensure you get the lowest price possible, I urge you to book your tour in advance and online. Try to avoid booking 24 hours prior to departure as there won't be any seats or the price will be higher.
I hope that this article has inspired you to take a Valentine's Day trip that will be remembered for a lifetime. The Grand Canyon is an incredibly romantic place, and there are few parks that offer the same level of beauty and adventure. I love the bottom landing Helicopter add-on at the West Rim, and the South Rim is made even better when you take a short flight to the North Rim. Whatever you end up choosing, remember to enjoy the day, book online, and book with your credit card for the best price. If you thought Las Vegas was special, just wait until you head out to the Grand Canyon!
