The Grand Canyon attracts millions of people annually, probably because it's among the most spectacular of the world's Seven Natural Wonders. These visitors travel from places all over the globe. Bus tours from Las Vegas make it easy to see the Grand Canyon while on a gaming vacation.

Visitors will find luxury motor coach tours most convenient for the South and West Rims of the Canyon, as well as for special side trips. Travelers on bus trips to the Grand Canyon's West Rim may wish to add a helicopter visit to the canyon floor, a journey to the beautiful Grand Canyon Skywalk, or an exciting rafting adventure on the Colorado. A helicopter trip to the North Rim and back is available for visitors whose bus trips will take them to the South Rim.

Grand Canyon bus trips make getting there half the fun of visiting the canyon. Motor coaches pass by beautiful Lake Mead on their way to the Grand Canyon. You'll then descend into Black Canyon and take the new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge to cross over the mighty Colorado River. Almost all Grand Canyon bus tours stop on the Arizona side of this bridge during the return trip to Las Vegas. Tour operators know their passengers will want to photograph Hoover Dam.

You can expect your tour bus to enter a series of deep, beautiful mountain valleys before going into the Mojave Desert. Travelers with a West Rim destination will see the bus take a dirt road through an old forest of Joshua Trees. South Rim tours carry on to Kingman, Arizona. Then they go westward into Grand Canyon National Park itself. The well-known highway, Route 66, runs alongside much of this road.

The Native American Hualapai tribe owns Grand Canyon West, where you'll leave your bus and start exploring the rim. Eagle Point and Guano Point are two of the best-known canyon lookout points, but you'll also want to see the Indian Cultural Center and Hualapai Ranch. If you'd like to check out the Skywalk, be sure to add this package to your Grand Canyon bus tour at booking time for the lowest price.

That's also true for the helicopter flight you can add to a South Rim bus tour. You'll pay more for it at the canyon than you would if you book it ahead. This chopper trip is well worth every penny, though. It leaves from Grand Canyon National Park Airport and takes you to the North Rim and back by flying over the canyon's deepest section. You'll love the fantastic vistas offered by your flight over the Colorado River, the Dragoon Corridor and Grand Canyon Village.

The trip will be extremely comfortable due to the on-board restrooms, dining trays, window shades, DVD players, personal air conditioning and plasma TVs you'll find in every coach used for Grand Canyon bus trips. Your driver will be completely familiar with the canyon and the passing landscape, and you'll be treated to an IMAX-type movie about Grand Canyon history.

There's a Grand Canyon bus trip for everyone, no matter what type you prefer. You'll have the opportunity to select from a range of trip packages. Basic tours just get you to the main gate, while tour add-ons provide you with tickets to the Skywalk, rafting adventures and helicopter rides. Bus tours also include complementary hotel shuttle service and free lunch. Of course, there's a high demand for these tours, so don't wait too long. Make your online booking arrangements now to ensure that your group gets the best seats!
