Begin your Vegas to Grand Canyon South Rim trip by our travel tips on the Globerouter.com website.The Grand Canyon as a whole is located in a rather remote part of northern Arizona,and the surrounding areas of interest to tourists are not limited to the Rims of the canyon alone.
It's important to understand the massive swath of land that is Grand Canyon National Park and the surrounding plateau;visitors'should expect to do at least 2–8 hours of driving round-trip their from departure point to the most popular Grand Canyon destinations.Look for lodging in areas inside and outside of the park,radiating outward in towns like Tusayan,Williams,Flagstaff,Sedona,Las Vegas and Scottsdale.
Most tours disembark from these cities,too,and offer pick-up from area hotels and lodging.Visitors greatly benefit from the outlying areas'additional attractions,restaurants,services,nightlife and entertainment.Familiarize yourself with the small towns like Williams and Tusayan and medium-to-large cities like Las Vegas,Sedona and Flagstaff,and all they have to offer.
Tour in the comfort of an air-conditioned bus,motor coaches or van with optional one-day and overnight bus tours that leave and return from Las Vegas,Phoenix and other cities.Some even offer resort and hotel pick up convenience.Taking a ground tour allows you to enjoy expert narration,plus spectacular desert,forest and canyon views without worrying about driving and parking.
Many coach rides are packaged with other attractions and tours such as helicopter rides,whitewater river rafting,tickets to the Grand Canyon Skywalk and discounted admission to the Grand Canyon IMAX theater.
If your coach tour begins in Las Vegas,you'll likely make a stop at the Hoover Dam,one of the great engineering wonders of the world,then on to one of the natural wonders of the world—all in one coach ride!Bus and coach tours can endure a full-day or be span the course of several days and nights.Depending on how much of the Grand Canyon you'd like to see,there is a bus tour for everyone.
