Comedy on Deck is a locally owned Las Vegas tour company offering luxury bus tours to The Hoover Dam and The Grand Canyon’s stunning West Rim led by charming, hilarious, and knowledgeable guides. Most of the tour guides who work for the company are trained stand-ups, but the guides who don’t moonlight in comedy are just as funny and personable.
Comedy on Deck’s Grand Canyon bus tour starts in the morning, where you’ll meet your equally funny and informative tour guide. Your first stop is the beautifully restored Boulder Dam Hotel, where you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast of your choice.
After you enjoy your warm meal and explore the beautiful hotel, you’ll board your bus and drive across The Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge (which is the second highest bridge in the country and features the longest concrete arch in The Western Hemisphere), on the way to your next stop; a walking tour of an authentically recreated Hualapai Indian Village.
After you explore the village, your tour takes you to the main attraction. Your first stop at The Grand Canyon is Eagle Point, a popular photo stop boasting an iconic rock formation that resembles an Eagle spreading its wings for flight. After you get a few shots of the amazing rock formation, take a step over the edge at the Skywalk, a glass bottomed structure that juts out 4,000 feet above the Canyon floor. Admission to the skywalk is not included with your tour, but it’s an experience you won’t want to miss.
Your next stop is Guano Point (named after a Guano Mine nearby), where you can hike up a hill to take in a 360 degree panoramic view of the entire Canyon that will take your breath away. After that, your bus will take you to The Western Ranch, where VIP guests will enjoy lunch (lunch is not included in the express tour) and have the opportunity to participate in a fun scavenger hunt. Guests can also opt in for a horse-back riding session or a 30 minute wagon ride.
At an intricately detailed recreation of an Old Western Town, you’ll get to see horse-drawn wagons, a working marshal, a jail and a saloon. Learn the skills that cowboys needed to survive in the Wild West, like quick drawing, cow roping, hatchet tossing, bow and arrow shooting and gold-mining, then test those skills in competitions.
The Las Vegas to Grand Canyon Bus tour is an all-day experience that lasts about eleven hours from pick up to drop off back in Vegas. This all-inclusive experience gives you the opportunity to see this natural wonder in all its spectacular glory, with two meals included and stops at fun and fascinating sites. If you book your tour package through Tix4Tonight, you can see it all for less. Because the only thing that’s better than experiencing one of the best Las Vegas Grand Canyon tours is saving money while you do it.
Comedy on Deck’s Hoover Dam Tour is equally impressive. Hop aboard your bus, where your fun and knowledgeable tour guide leads you on an adventure. The first stop is a 45 minute, fully-guided “walk on the top” experience where you’ll learn all kinds of facts as you walk across the massive structure and get a perfect perspective of its massive scale. Your guide teaches you about the unbelievable amount of concrete that went into building the dam, the workers who lost their lives building it, the dangerous jobs of the Hoover Dam high-scalers, the engineering genius of the diversion tunnels, how the dam responds to earthquakes, and more.
The comprehensive Las Vegas Hoover Dam Tour also takes you 526 feet down the dam to the 8 generators in the power plant, where you’ll stand in one of the 2,000- 4,000 foot long, 56 foot wide diversion tunnels. After that, take in a panoramic view of Lake Mead, where you can catch a glimpse of the largest reservoir in the country and the big-horn sheep who call the lake home. Take advantage of the photo opportunity before you move on to your hot lunch at the historic Boulder Dam Hotel. This beautifully restored hotel is a tranquil escape to nature in the only city in Nevada where gambling isn’t legal and where many iconic celebrities have stayed over the years.
The last stop on the tour is at Ethel M Chocolate Factory, where you’ll have time to check out the factory floor, indulge in a few decadent samples, and bring some sweets to enjoy as you drive back and learn some fascinating Sin City facts from your guide.
Comedy on Deck’s Hoover Dam Tour is a good value no matter what, but it’s a steal if you book your tour at a Tix4Tonight half-price ticket booth on The Strip or in downtown, where tours are available at a huge discount.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the breathtaking sights awaiting you on Comedy on Deck’s Grand Canyon West Rim or Las Vegas to Hoover Dam tours.
