A VIP West Rim Experience
Our West Rim small group VIP tours will give you and your group the Grand Canyon experience you have dreamt of. The first step of the journey is a convenient hotel pickup directly from your Las Vegas hotel. You will travel in a luxury Mercedes Sprinter van. Your dedicated driver and tour guide will be your resource for information and fun throughout your West Rim Grand Canyon tour.
The Drive To The Grand Canyon
To start the morning, we provide you a delicious snack for breakfast to enjoy along the way. After a short drive to the Grand Canyon, you will arrive at the West Rim. Your entry fee to Grand Canyon West is included in the price of your tour package. We do not charge any additional taxes or fees like other companies do. Please be aware that the price for admission to the Skywalk, however, is NOT included in our tour. Skywalk entry is optional and is available to purchase for $33 upon checkout when booking your tour, or at the West Rim Welcome Center. Your walking tour guide is also able to upgrade your reservations to include Skywalk tickets at any time during the trip to the West Rim.
What To Do At The Grand Canyon West Rim
At Grand Canyon West, you will hop on the shuttle to the first lookout, Eagle Point. The incredible view of the eagle shaped rock formation is something that can only be truly appreciated in person. At Eagle Point there is a Native American Indian Village which demonstrates some living dwellings used by Native American tribes in times of old. The Skywalk and Skywalk gift shop are also located at Eagle Point. The West Rim of the canyon is home to the Hualapai Native American tribe. The tribe owns and operates all parts of the West Rim, so it is a great place to learn about their history and culture.
The next stop is Guano Point, which you have probably seen in movies without even realizing it. The views at this point are completely different than Eagle Point, but maybe even more impressive. If you hike along the dirt trail on the edge at Guano Point, you will see spectacular views from different angles.
Returning To Las Vegas
After spending about 4 hours exploring the West Rim and seeing all the best viewpoints, you will return to the Welcome Center and head back to Las Vegas. During the drive back you can sit back and relax while your driver and guide take care of the travel. The return time to Las Vegas is approximately 5:30 PM.
Choosing the small group experience for your Grand Canyon adventure will allow you and your group to have a highly personal, customizable, and enjoyable tour.
