Like everything in Las Vegas, experiencing the Grand Canyon should be done in style. That’s why Gray Line Tour’s “Grand Canyon South Rim with Helicopter Ride” is the choice selection of tour packages. Begin the day with complimentary pickup from most hotels on the Strip (and Downtown), and be whisked away to the Gray Line’s private terminal. It’s here, where you’ll board a Luxury Mercedes Sprinter and head out to the Grand Canyon in comfort and style.
En route, you’ll pass “Fortification Hill,” an extinct volcano with amazing history that your Tour Guide will tell you all about. Once you enter Grand Canyon National Park, the first stop is at the Nat Geo Visitor’s Center for a delicious lunch in the IMAX Theatre Complex where you’ll get to see the thrilling IMAX Movie Experience.
Next, you’ll head over to the spectacular “South Rim, ” an area that spans over 20 miles across. It’s the deepest part of the magnificent Grand Canyon and must be experienced in person. The view is so awesome and expansive it’s hard to put into words. The tour includes several stops at different lookout points so it’s truly a full day.
The highlight of the trip though has got to be the helicopter ride! See the Canyon from the sky in a 25-30 minute ride through the famous “Dragon’s Corridor.” After the ride, the visit to the park will conclude as you’ll board the luxury sprinter and head back to Vegas, leaving you still plenty of time to plan for a night on the town.
