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.

Tour was fabulous! Our guide Mike was the best! Very friendly and knowledgeable. This was the highlight of my trip.
The tour was amazing!
The tour was the perfect length, from start to finish, and I am really glad I finally saw it for myself. I learned quite a bit on the way out to the West Rim, even after living in town for 20 years! I was super impressed with the Skywalk and the vistas in the West Rim. And even the little western town/ranch where we ate lunch. Everything was fantastic!
Our guide was amazing ... chris was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He assisted in every way I could have imagined. I would recommend him as a guide to family and friends !!
Jerry was fun, informative, and helped us take amazing photos! Very memorable adventure!
We had awesome weather and the scenery was awesome so the tour coupled with the best tour guide and comfortable Jeep made for an excellent adventure. Jerry is the best!! I took this tour in Feb 2005 with Barbie and it was good- but this was so much better because your vehicles are more comfortable and Jerry is such a great tour guide!! He showed us so many fun ways to take pictures and is so intelligent and his knowledge is endless it seems.
My wife and I have taken tours all over Europe, the States, to include Hawaii. Don was The Man. We wanted for nothing on the tour. I can't begin to describe how thrilled we were, throughout the tour. Don't know what you're paying him? Come pay raise time, he deserves a nice one. It was one big positive experience for all of us. Thanks so much for allowing Don to be our guide that day.
Awesome!!! Loved it!
It was absolutely amazing! Saw many interesting things with the history and facts of the grand canyon
