I'm a travel journalist. Enjoy playing softball. I have two parrots that I adore. Like cooking Chinese meals for best friends and family. Movie buff and my favorite is Harry Potter.

Imagine how exciting it would be to finally see in person, a place you have wanted to visit for years. You will definitely feel that excitement on a bus tour of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is a sight you will remember forever because it is so huge and beautiful. The canyon's immense proportions, combined with its vividly-colored rocky walls and its unique rock formations, are breathtaking.

Bus tours to the West Rim offer you the chance to experience the thrilling Grand Canyon Skywalk. It is made from steel and glass and allows you to walk out over the edge of the canyon. Walking out on this glass bridge is like walking on air. The depths of the canyon stretch out far below your feet.

The wind will buffet you on the Skywalk, and while it might be scary, the bridge was built to stand up to winds over 100 miles per hour. From that vantage point, you will be able to take some amazing photographs of the spectacular gorge. Far below your feet, you'll see the Colorado River - the agent that created the Grand Canyon - wending its way along the canyon floor.

The buses used for motor coach trips are modern and have comfortable seats and large viewing windows. Your driver knows all about the area. He will act as a tour guide, point out interesting sights and answer any questions you might have. Your bus will stop a few times so you can explore and take photographs of points of interest. Most Grand Canyon bus tours also stop at Hoover Dam so their passengers can take photographs.

You can choose a Grand Canyon bus tour that goes to the South or West Rim, and select the options that suit you best. For instance, you might want to spend the night, choose a complimentary lunch, or opt for other activities. Most motor coach trips take an entire day, but the South Rim tours are longest and require more than 15 hours. The South Rim is more than 250 miles away from Las Vegas, and just driving there and back takes 5 hours round-trip.

The Grand Canyon has a long history and has been inhabited by many different groups of people. In fact Native Americans still own land near the canyon. When your bus stops, you will be able to meet the locals and buy authentic Native American artwork.

Early pioneers also settled in the region. Grand Canyon Village was built to accommodate visitors back when there were only 40,000 people per year who visited. Today, that number exceeds five million.

The Grand Canyon has been a U.S. National Park since 1919, and in the years since, millions of people have enjoyed this scenic wonder. During your bus tour, you'll see the colors of the canyon shifting before your eyes as the sun traverses the sky, and the shadows you'll see forming make the area seem like it's coming to life. This majestic display of nature has to be seen to fully appreciate. That is why a bus tour of the canyon is the ideal way to see the Grand Canyon, since buses move along slowly, that gives you plenty of time to fully see the rocks, wildlife, and plants.
