Private Day Tour of Grand Canyon South Rim from Las Vegas
After departing Las Vegas, guests 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 to 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 the Grand Canyon National Park, the tour will stop in Historic Williams Arizona. 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 the Grand Canyon National Park, you will have opportunities to walk along the rim, shop, capture an unlimited number of photographs, or enjoy your lunch and relax with the best seat in the house. Your guide will ensure you get the best views from Mather Point and Yavapai Point.

INCREDIBLE AERIAL VIEWS
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.
No, the Skywalk is at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. Our tour covers the South Rim only.
