Grand Canyon South Rim Tour from Las Vegas - Desert View Watchtower

Departs: approximately 5:30am

Returns: approximately 7:00pm

After a convenient hotel pick-up, this small group tour will travel through the Mojave Desert and over the Colorado River on their way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Mojave Desert is characterized by its signature plant, the Joshua Tree, and plays host to arguably the hottest place on Earth. To beat the heat, we will be traveling over the mighty Colorado River on the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and pass by Route 66, the “Main Street of America.”

Before arriving to the widest and deepest part of Grand Canyon National Park, the tour will stop in historic Williams, AZ. With the Grand Canyon Railway and the intersection of Route 66, this small town is a reminder of the American west from the 1950s. During your three hours in Grand Canyon National Park, you will have opportunities to walk along the rim, shop, capture an unlimited amount of photographs, or relax with the best seat in the house. Your guide will ensure you get the best views from Mather Point, Yavapai Point or one of the many other beautiful viewpoints at the Canyon.

Helicopter Tour over Grand Canyon DETOURS


The Southwest Escape is a Grand Canyon helicopter tour that departs from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon taking you over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest. Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and eastern end of the canyon come into view – one of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon. In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower designed by the Hopi Indians. Your journey continues as you follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River.


  • Visiting the Grand Canyon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I was extremely happy that I did it with Detours. The weather on the day we chose was not great (cloudy mainly) but our guide really made the difference in this day trip from Vegas. He was very professional, attentive and knowledgeable, a 5-Star tour guide! In addition to the spectacular Grand Canyon, the tour included another unmissable highlight if you travel to USA: the famous Route 66 with stop in one of its historic towns. I had a great day out, thanks Detours!

  • Our tour to Grand Canyon South Rim with our tour guide was amazing. He gave us a lot of history and pointed out so many things during the drive to the Canyon including an Eagle's nest in a tree. We had enough time at the Canyon with plenty of stops on the way including some very cool stores. I would take this tour again and I will recommend it to friends and family. I am very happy that we chose Detours. It was a day that my family and I will always remember. Thank you Detours!
