Report Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour From Las

Jul 23, 2018 // By:feichang // No Comment

Travel-and-Leisure By far and away one of the most popular Grand Canyon bus trip is the the one that leaves from Las Vegas and goes to the South Rim. I grabbed one of these tours for $80 and it didn’t disappoint. Here’s my trip report: I have to say this is one of several excursions to the canyon for less than $100. It’s all-inclusive and is sold with free hotel pick up and drop off, lunch, and a professional driver guide. This particular travel .pany picked me up at my Las Vegas Strip hotel on time. I knocked back a mug of robust coffee, a blueberry pastry, and found my seat. The luxurious motor coach was impressive. The seats were plush and the window’s had draw-down sun blinds (useful for the ride back). Each person had their very own A/C, cup holders, and table trays. I counted at least 7 TVs. Plus I got a pair of headphones for the pre-recorded trip narration. This is not a quick trip. One-way drive time is five-and-a-half-hours. There are several well-timed convenience breaks, in addition to a Hoover Dam photo stop (more about this later). Total tour time is about 15 hours. I managed to get back to my hotel about 9 p.m. The route over followed the edge of Lake Mead (take a seat on the left side). We traversed the Colorado River/Black Canyon utilizing the brand-new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, which goes up 900 feet across the river. As opposed to other tours, ours stopped on the Arizona side for pictures of the Dam. Absolutely make sure this is included in your package. Our bus purred along to Williams, AZ, before rolling north for the last 60 miles to Grand Canyon National Park. Here you can prolong your excursion by including a South Rim chopper tour. It takes you through the Dragoon Corridor, the widest, deepest section of the canyon. I stuck with the basic Grand Canyon by bus excursion. Our guided tour took us to Yavapai Observation Center and Mather Point. The views were magnificent. I specially appreciated the vista from Mather. The first time you see the canyon is truly a spectacular moment. The amount of time we were given at these viewing areas was more than enough. Lastly, out driver-guide dropped us off at Bright Angel Lodge, the heart of the Grand Canyon Village. Plenty to do here. The Bright Angel Trail (use it to go below the rim), El Tovar Hotel, the Rim Trail and the Lodge kept me occupied. A box lunch is supplied. More food can be purchased a the restaurant in the Lodge or at the snack bar close to the edge. I pointed out earlier that this canyon coach tour can be purchased for approximately $80. To get that deal, you will need to shop the net. There are a few on the market. Try and get the one that offers you around three hours at the rim and includes all Park fees. I also re.mend that you order this trip beforehand. This Grand Canyon by bus tour is the greatest deal around. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. You ought to be prepared to devote an entire day to the trip. Departure time is always close to 7 a.m. Return is in the late evening. That may seem like and endurance test but it is not. Buses these days are the height of .fort. No trip to Vegas is .plete without a journey to the canyon. So do it. Take the Grand Canyon bus. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
