Grand canyon overnight tour help

We will be in Las Vegas from 29 August for a few days. We are from NZ so do not wish to drive in the US (wrong side of road). We are keen to do an overnight tour into the real Grand Canyon and have come across the Grand Canyon Tours www.grandcanyontours.com/nightbus.htm . Does anyone know about this tour and if it is good, also any other ones that could be recommended.?

The point of taking the tour is to get to GCNP. It will include a 3 hour tour in the park, however will also allow you free time to explore on your own both days. It's fine. If you can't drive yourselves there, it's a good choice.

Make certain that the over night tour provides over night lodging INSIDE the Grand Canyon National Park. If your hotel is outside the park in Tusayan, it might as well be 100 miles away. Absent your own transportation, you need to be inside the park.

Thank you. The website says that the stay is at Yavapai lodging accommodations. It appears to be inside the GC National Park, which is what we want, and the South rim. As mentioned, driving ourselves is not an option at all, so the best option would be a night or 2 night tour however there does not appear to be many options I can see on the internet.

There are very few options. And many of those that are advertised might not happen at all. Advance reservations are an absolute must.

GrandCanyonTours is the only overnight tour that I know of. I don't know if they block rooms, however, so you should contact them and make sure the tour is available for your dates. They also offer a transportation-only option, so you could book it for however many nights you desire, then book your lodging inside the Park yourselves. Park lodges can be booked at www.grandcanyonlodges.com BUT I would expect them to be sold out for this August by now; you would need to call them for cancellations.

Thank you very much. This is very helpful and I will check it all out, appears during weekdays there is some availability in the park.
