At the Grand Canyon, meet members of the Native American Hualapai Tribe, add on a walk on the popular Grand Canyon Skywalk or just explore at leisure. Transportation by 14-passenger mini coach and lunch are included.

What to Expect
Set aside a full day for sightseeing with an early morning departure from your Las Vegas hotel. Recline in comfort, as you head for the Arizona border for a photo stop at Hoover Dam. Back on the road, enjoy scenic views of the Mojave Desert, as you continue on toward the Grand Canyon. At the West Rim, stop at Eagle Point to take a walk on the glass-bottom Grand Canyon Skywalk, snap photos, or shop for souvenirs. Then, take a short hike to Guano Point for postcard-worthy views of the Canyon with no barriers. Have a hot lunch at the Hualapai Ranch and meet members of the Hualapai tribe. On the way back to Vegas, stop at Joshua Tree Forest before heading back to town in time for a show or dinner.
