A trip to the Grand Canyon is simply incomparable, and our Grand Canyon West Rim Classic Tour ensures you will enjoy an authentic experience at this natural wonder. Plus, plenty of Southwest sights on the journey there and back. Our knowledgeable Certified Interpretive Tour Guides and custom Tour Trekker will make this one journey you’ll never forget.
To start, we’ll pick you up at your hotel and give you a comfortable ride with unobstructed views during the drive to Eagle Point. Along the way, you’ll see Lake Mead; as the largest man-made reservoir in the country, it contains enough water to flood the entire state of New York. You’ll also travel through a Joshua Tree forest that is unique to the Mojave Desert.
Eagle Point is home to the Hualapai Village, a native Arizona tribe whose ancestors date back to A.D. 600. Upon your arrival, you will be treated with a barbecue lunch with vegetarian options. Eagle Point is also home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass and steel structure that extends 70 feet out over the rim and gives you views of the canyon floor over 4,000 feet below. It’s an experience that will make you feel like you’re walking on air. Skywalk admission is an additional $25 and can be purchased at the canyon.
Guano Point is another highlight of this tour. Walk out to the edge of the point for nearly 360-degree views. The natural bat cave located here was the location of a climactic scene in the film “Edge of Eternity” (Columbia Pictures, 1959). See if you can spot parts of the historic tram that stretched across the canyon to a guano mine.
After your time at the canyon, you’ll head back to Las Vegas. A quick stop for a photo op at the iconic Hoover Dam will showcase this concrete architectural wonder that holds back the waters of Lake Mead. The Hoover Dam is a National Historic Landmark.
There’s much to see and do during our Grand Canyon West Rim Classic Tour, but we’ll make sure you catch all the best sights. A combination of history and stunning beauty makes this journey unforgettable.

Wonderful information & a great experience
Different, funny, exciting....
A memorable tour and trip to see the Grand Canyon. Our tour guide Chris was very informative and ensured we had a really great day out
As per comments regarding improvements, we were given two different sets of boarding instructions within minutes of each other.
It’s great. Chris is the best tour guide so far I have had so many trips in different countries. He is 5-star and I wholeheartedly thank him!!!!
Loved it! We had the best tour guide! Wish she could host every tour I took! Very informative, friendly, and never felt rushed. I had time to enjoy everything.
Ken was very informative, a good laugh and entertaining.he was determined to show us some of the wildlife that he had informed us of and went out of the way to find us some mountain sheep.the grand canyon was breathtaking and the Skywalk was exhilarating.We were shown many interesting sites including Hoover Dam and the Indian reservation. The stops on route were very interesting in particular when we met some of the local residents at the gas station! We would recommend this trip to anyone and we already have to our friends who are visiting Last Vegas in May 2019
Excellent tour with a great guide. We saw all that we wanted to see and learnt a lot along the way. Our guide Ken was very friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Party size was good with just 9 of us so no driving to loads of hotels for pick-ups and no waiting around plus we got to know each other during the trip. Would thoroughly recommend
Excellent, we learned more about the region than we would have just taking the helicopter flight
