Bus tours to Grand Canyon National Park

We will be staying in Scottsdale the week of Jan. 10 and are planning a trip to GCNP. Anyone have any suggestions for a bus tour going there or would it be better to drive?

1. Re: Bus tours to Grand Canyon National Park

Although I'm sure bus tours from Scottsdale exist, it is a simple trip to make by car and you'll probably appreciate the greater flexibility afforded by doing so.

The only issue I can think of is if there is a great snowfall at higher elevations during the week of your stay, but either the highway is closed or it's not. If it's closed, the bus tour isn't going to make it anyway. If there's snow but the roads are passable, I suspect being from Omaha, you know how to drive in it.

Enjoy your trip!

There are tour vans out of Scottsdale, not sure a bus or not.

Weather in January needs to be watched .

I would leave it till last minute, and if the weather and road conditions are fine, rent a car and do it!
