Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Trips Are Best For Budget Travelers-www.8008205555

Travel-and-Leisure You have been waiting on your family vacation time to get here and you just know that your plan will make for a very special time. While you could have gone anywhere for your vacation, you are sure to enjoy the choice of going to the Grand Canyon. The least expensive way to go there is by taking one of the South Rim bus tours that leave from Las Vegas. You do have the option of flying on a helicopter or airplane to get to the canyon and you may even get a rental car and make the drive on your own (which is not recommended). While there are some good points to each of these other options, the most cost effective way is to take a coach tour. Included in these coach tours is a free box lunch, free admission to the parks, free pickup and drop off at your hotel, and en expert to give you a guided tour and drive you. They even stop at Hoover Dam to let you to take photos. South Rim bus excursions take an entire day – about 15 hours altogether. This may seem like a long time but you have to consider that it will take about five and a half hours to get there and then another five and a half hours to get you back to Las Vegas. Along the way, you will be able to see plenty of exciting sites including historic Route 66, Lake Mead, the Mojave Desert, and the Hoover Dam. You will surely enjoy the ride more since you will be sitting in comfortable seats in a climate controlled bus. Upgrades are a popular choice for those taking the South Rim bus tours because they can add a helicopter ride that will take them from the South Rim to the North Rim and return them back at the South Rim. This flight will take you about thirty minutes to complete and it will give you the chance to see the Phantom Ranch, Dragoon Corridor, the Colorado River, and Grand Canyon Village. A lot of people taking these chopper flights say they’re the highlight of their Grand Canyon visit. Some companies have begun to offer Deluxe Grand Canyon bus tours to their customers. Instead of using large buses that seat more than 40, these deluxe tours use smaller, deluxe motor coaches (or customized vans) with seating limited to around 12 passengers. They do come with a larger price tag but they will give you a more personal view than a standard bus trip. Some people who have taken these deluxe tours call their driver/guide a ?travel butler.? The passengers get to decide which places they want to visit on their trip. South Rim bus tours typically give their passengers about three hours to explore the National Park. That typically gives them enough time. The bus will take a route that will allow you to see the Yavapai Point and Mather Point while you are riding on the bus. Your tour should also allow you to visit the Grand Canyon Village. You will be able to visit museums, go to gift shops, and check out some of the restaurants (The Bright Angel Lodge is a favorite for many people). You will also be able to make use of the park’s shuttle system. You can catch these shuttle buses about every fifteen minutes for free and they will take you places that may not have been included in your bus tour. I recommend that you download a free copy of The Guide put out by the park service. It includes a map and shuttle schedule that will come in very handy. When you visit the parks official site you can download it. Using these coach tours to see all that you can at the Grand Canyon National Park is a great way to create wonderful memories for a reasonable price. They do take the biggest part of the day but you can be on the Vegas Strip by about nine in the evening. They’re so rewarding they’ve become a must-do for anyone visiting Las Vegas. Put one of these South Rim bus excursions at the top of your to-do list while you’re in the Vegas area. Copyright (c) 2012 Grand CanyonTours of Las Vegas About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
