What Makes Us Different

Due to the longer drive to this destination, the best Grand Canyon early tour doesn’t waste any time. Because of this, your day trip from Las Vegas begins with a convenient hotel pick-up in our luxurious fleet. Traveling on our Las Vegas to Grand Canyon tour bus, you will be given complimentary food, amenities, and entertainment that will make your trip that much more enjoyable.

Our buses are all state-of-the-art model vehicles with adjustable seating, individually controlled air conditioning, and panoramic windows. There is also a unisex lavatory aboard with a hand washing station for customer convenience. Taking a Grand Canyon South Rim bus tour from Las Vegas is the perfect way to experience the Grand Canyon in a day trip without breaking the bank.

The standard Grand Canyon tour companies use a driver and tour guide in one. This person then has to check guests in, narrate the tour, pass out lunches, answer questions, and drive a 40,000 pound vehicle safely.

At Grand Canyon Destinations, we value safety and customer service. That is why we have a separate driver and tour guide on every tour bus. Your dedicated tour guide will be there to guide you, share facts and stories, answer your questions, and help you with any needs throughout the tour.
