Taking a bus tour of the Grand Canyon is the least expensive way to tour the national park, but it is still an awesome experience. It is more convenient for you over driving yourself and it is also a better deal than renting a car. No matter how you look at it, a National Park bus tour is a sightseeing option that makes a great deal of sense.

You can book a quality motor coach tour out of Las Vegas for a very good price. All of the bus tours are pretty much alike. They use clean, modern buses that are extremely comfortable, plus the drivers know a lot about the region and are fun to talk to during your trip. All of these bus tours include a tasty lunch as well as free pickup and drop-off service at Las Vegas Strip hotels.

The bus tours go to the South Rim or the West Rim. The West Rim is actually part of the Hualapai Indian Reservation. It takes about 2 hours to drive there from Vegas. It takes twice as long to get to the South Rim. For many people, the South Rim is more like the real Grand Canyon.

Actually, it is difficult to say which rim is best. It depends upon your preferences and what activities you want to do when you get to the park. If you are more interested in soaking up the natural beauty of the region, then a tour to the South Rim probably is best. If you don't have time to go to the South Rim, or if you want some adventure, then choose a West Rim tour. The base prices of the two types of tours are basically the same. However, if you add on options and side trips, you will pay more.

You should book your bus tour to the Grand Canyon far in advance. Booking early is how you get great discounts. If you are going to the Grand Canyon during the summer, or peak travel season, then you want to book your trip during the off-season. Your tickets will be less expensive then. If you want a West Rim package that includes a chopper flight to the canyon floor, book in advance to make sure your travel party can all fly together (remember, though, that copters can only hold six people).

It is best to buy your tickets from the operator of the tour. You'll spend a lot more for your bus tour if you buy your tickets at a street kiosk or through a travel agent or hotel concierge. They have to charge more so they can make a profit.

Because Las Vegas has so many tour operators, you'll need to do some extensive research in order to find the best prices and Grand Canyon bus discounts. It's easiest to do this research online, and that's where you'll find the cheapest prices anyway. When you're looking into Grand Canyon motor coach trips, shop around and make sure you make an informed decision.

You should go ahead and book your tour online too. You'll be able to compare the prices on various tour operator websites before making your purchase. Plus, when you visit the tour operators' websites, you can see all the seasonal discounts and internet specials. The best prices for these motor coach trips are on the Internet. In order to qualify for the internet special though, you have to complete your transaction online.

These bus tour providers strive to deliver an amazing experience. They pretty much have to provide awesome tours or they would go out of business quickly since there is so much competition. There is so much to do at the Grand Canyon, you may bust your budget if you don't watch your spending. Enjoying the trip is the most important thing and you can do that with a basic tour that lets you soak up the natural beauty of the magnificent Grand Canyon.
