A trip to Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without making a short detour to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The south rim of the canyon is a mere 4 hour ride from Las Vegas. There are a lot of tour buses that can take you on a day trip to the Grand Canyon should one prefer not to drive. We searched online and found several tour buses, of which we chose Canyon Tours for 85 usd each including lunch and a tour to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
The pick up spot for the Canyon Tours is at the rotunda of the Excalibur Hotel. Pick up time is 7 am.
The bus ride was comfortable and entertaining, its always nice to see new places on the way. What you will be seeing are flat deserts and desert mountains. Green mountain are very rare and the greens that you will be seeing are cacti and desert bushes.
