Historic Route 66

It's a long ride to the Grand Canyon, so why not break it up with a stop at the town that revitalized Route 66? Seligman is widely rumored to be the town that inspired Radiator Springs in the Disney movie "Cars" and you'll see why when you arrive. It's a quaint little town where you can see Angel Delgadillo's historic barbershop filled with memorabilia commemorating what used to be the most-traveled road in the southwest desert.

The Grand Canyon South Rim  

When you arrive at the Grand Canyon, you'll be ready to stretch your legs again—but with new-found excitement. That giant hole in the ground you've been waiting to see is just steps away, and thanks to your guide's storytelling on the ride, you have a greater appreciation for its creation. It's 277 miles of grandeur that's often a mile deep or more. And the changing colors and shadows at each lookout point will amaze you.

Grand Canyon Village and Rim Trail

Start at the visitors center or walk straight out to Mather Point for your first breathtaking view. From here, you can explore 2.5 miles of viewpoints and your guide is sure to have told you which are the best ones. Walk the Rim Trail or hop on the shuttle to the Grand Canyon Village to see historic buildings like Bright Angel Lodge and the El Tovar hotel. Make sure to look down the canyon here to spot a mule train heading to Phantom Ranch!

Round-Trip Transportation

After your long day of adventure and fascinating stories, you'll return to Vegas. Enjoy another nap on the ride back if you like since we have you safely covered thanks to our driver and guide.

This was such a great experience. Professionally run and covered everything as promised. We got to see the Grand Canyon and Hoover Damn in one day which made my wife happy. We did tours with the Tour Guy in Europe and we're happy to see them moving into the USA.

It was "Grand"

Loved the small group and having everything reserved in advance. We saw a ton of cool things I don't think we would have seen on our own. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Las Vegas who wants to get out of the "craziness" of the city.

Great tour, no stress

I went to Las Vegas with my family and didn't want to rent a car or deal with logistics. I booked this tour, got a voucher in my email, showed up, and everything was taken care of. I definitely recommend it!
