Enjoy a day of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim with round trip transportation from the Las Vegas Strip in a deluxe motor coach, bound for the Route 66 town of Williams, Arizona, “The gateway to the Grand Canyon” and catch a ride on the historic Grand Canyon Railway.
On your way to the South Rim, you will travel through the Mojave Desert, across the famous Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, and cross iconic Route 66. Today offers a dramatic scenery change as you gain 5000 feet of elevation from Las Vegas. Desert plants and animals change to scenery and wildlife from the Colorado Rockies, with 100 foot-tall pines, giant elk and mule deer. Williams Arizona was one of the last Route 66 towns to be bypassed by the Interstate 40. The historic railway made its first runs between Williams and the Grand Canyon in 1901, and the early Arizona small town feel is still alive and well as you pass through the train depot. Grand Canyon Railway travels between Williams, Arizona and the steps of the famous El Tovar Hotel, in Grand Canyon Village, at the deepest and widest part of the canyon. Popular attractions in the Grand Canyon National Park include El Tovar, Hopi House, Kolb Photo Studio, and the Bright Angel Trail – your guide will fill you in on all the details about what you can do and see. Guests will depart Grand Canyon with their tour guide and enjoy a coach trip back to Las Vegas.
