THIS IS A 15+ HOUR TOUR! We depart Las Vegas between 6:00am and and return at 7:30pm.
WE USE 15 PASSENGER VANS: Please make sure you are comfortable traveling in our 15 passenger vans. They are not customized.
REFUNDS: Cancellations within 48 hours are not eligible for refunds.
GROUP SIZES: THIS TOUR HAS 10 PASSENGERS in the van. Please make sure you don't mind making friends with strangers.
FOOD NOTE: Breakfast is not included in this tour and we won't have time to stop. We will provide one Arby's Marketfresh sandwich to each guest.
HIKER RATING 3/10: We walk along the upper rim trail, which is an easy, paved trail. There are a few hills and some lookout points that have stairs. There is very little off-trail walking and if you do huff and puff, it's not because you are out of shape. We'll be at 7,000 feet in elevation!
NO CHILDREN UNDER 10: We unfortunately do not allow children under ten. The van is small and intimate and the walk is not suitable for young or infant children. Please call us if you have multiple children over ten but one that isn't and we can discuss this with you.
SHOWS: Please DO NOT, never-ever-ever, swear-on-a-grave, BOOK A SHOW on the same night as your tour. There's always a slight chance that your tour experience could be seriously enhanced by a non-charged bonus like a flat tire, inclement weather, accident on the freeway, or even get caught in a herd of my beloved Michigan state animals, construction cones!
CHILD PRICING: Child pricng is for ages 10-16. Please call or email us if you have a few children over ten and one slightly under and we can make an exception for you. NO INFANTS! WE WILL REFUSE SERVICE UPON PICKUP TO ANYONE WHO BOOKS A CHILD UNDER 10 WITHOUT CONFIRMING IT WITH OUR OFFICE FIRST!
BALLY'S TOUR BUS DEPOT PICKUP LOCATION: All guests must meet us at Bally's Tour Bus Depot at 6:00am SHARP.
The South Rim Express Tour is designed to offer an affordable option to the South Rim that returns much earlier. All of our guests meet at BALLY'S TOUR BUS DEPOT at the center of the Strip. It's very, very important that you are on time because the mission of this tour is to maximize your time at the Grand Canyon while getting back much earlier. We'll hop in the van, hit the road, and drive a few hours until we reach our rest stop in Kingman, Arizona. You can grab lunch snacks and other items that you'd like to bring with you on the trail then hit the road again! It's about 2.5 hours from Kingman to the main gate of Grand Canyon National Park so we should arrive there around 10:30am. We'll take a quick bathroom break and then do our guided walking tour along the upper rim trail to Hopi Point. We'll have lunch together at some point along the way, take a lot of pictures, and explain the history of the Grand Canyon. There is also a free shuttle bus that rides adjacent to the walking trail so you can ride that if you get tired. It will pick up and drop off every half mile. We'll ride the shuttle bus back to the village after completing the walking tour, use the bathroom, and then head back to Vegas so everyone can party like rock stars!

EARLY RETURN TO LAS VEGAS on your grand canyon tour
This tour offers FOUR FULL HOURS at the Grand Canyon. We don't believe in driving all that far to spend an hour there. Our tours are designed to enhance your Grand Canyon experience. The tour guide will carry your picnic lunch in a backpack and set up lunch somewhere along the trail. We always like to remind our guests that the more you eat at lunch, the lighter their pack will be the rest of the day! They will also point out hidden lookout points, good picture spots, and explain how the Grand Canyon formed.
Our vans can seat up to 15 people but we only put two people in each row (that seats three) and three people in the back row (that seats four). This tour allows more guests as part of the budget and express package but we still focus on quality, value, and service. The group will still be small enough that we'll all develop and enjoy a higher personal experience. It also allows your tour guide to interact with you on a more personal level so that your experience of the Grand Canyon is as memorable as it should be. Our goal is to treat each of you like a friend visiting us for a day!
Our price includes a fully-guided tour. Our tour guides are with you all day to make sure that they maximize your experience at the South Rim. They'll take you on a guided walked once you reach the South Rim and stay with you the whole day. They'll use all of their training and experience to show you the best spots and history at the Grand Canyon.
We'll meet everyone at Bally's tour bus depot and eliminiate the unnecessary travel time it takes to pick everyone up in the morning. We'll drop you off at Bally's at the end of the tour. It's imperative that you are on time because the van will leave without you.
We include an Arby's Marketfresh sandwich on your tour. You'll be able to choose from a turkey, ham, roast beef, veggie, vegan, or gluten free sandwich when booking your tour. You can pick up fresh fruit and snacks when we stop in Kingman, Arizona.
One of the great bonuses of this tour is that we'll be back in Las Vegas early, allowing you to see more of the city.
SAFTETY NOTE: We do not recommend any of our tours for anyone with physical disabilities that limit or restrict mobility or if you have heart or respiratory problems. The grand canyon is located at 7,000 feet in altitude and has very thin air. You will need to provide a letter from your doctor clearing you to walk at 7,000 feet altitude if you have heart, respiratory, or physical disabilities. We also do not recommend our tours for handicap individuals as we will be walking between 2-3 miles.
TRAVEL NOTE: Please bring a book or another forms of entertainment. It's a very long, scenic drive to the Grand Canyon but one of the few destinations that you'll see that actually lives up to its hype! The scenery will change 3-4 times and those who don't choose to sleep normally talk to each other.
WALKING NOTE: We reserve the right to change or alter the walking route or tour for any reason. We may not visit the lookout points above. The main reason for altering a course usually involves inclement weather during the winter time or excessive rain in the summertime. We'll still spend 3-4 hours inside the park but drive to different lookout points. Please contact us immediately if you feel that your tour was cut short by the tour guide so that we can resolve this issue with you.
WALKING TOUR TIMES, ROUTES, & SEASONS: The express tour departs SHARPLY at 6:00am. We will not wait for anyone if you are late. The whole point of the express tour is to provide an economical tour to the Grand Canyon that returns early. We reserve the right to chane, alter, or cancel any tour for any reason.
Please email us at [email protected] or call 1.800.618.0744 if you have any questions about the departure dates and months.
