The Best of the Best - Tours from Las Vegas
The Hualapai, meaning “People of The Tall Pines,”
are native people of the Southwest. Traditionally hunter-gatherers, they
inhabited an area of more than 5 million acres. Their homeland
stretched from the Grand Canyon southward to the Santa Maria River and
from the Black Mountains eastward to the pine forests of the San
Francisco peaks. Today, the Hualapai American Indian Reservation,
created in 1883, is nearly 1,000,000 acres that includes 108 miles of
the Colorado River and Grand Canyon. There are approximately 2,100
enrolled members of the Hualapai Tribe and nearly half live in Peach
Springs, the capital of the Hualapai Nation, on Historic Route 66. Years
of social and economic hardship led Hualapai Leaders to take measures
that would lead to an independent future for the generations to come. As
a result, the Hualapai decided to open their land to visitors in 1988,
creating Grand Canyon West as a tourism destination. Currently,
multiple improvements - including a “Boys and Girls Club” facility, a
“Head Start” facility and a Social Services building - have been built
in Peach Springs. Many more projects are planned for the future, all
made possible by Hualapai Tourism.
(meaning: people of the tall pines)
The Hualapai tribe has done a masterful job of
balancing tourism with the natural environment
of the Grand Canyon.
A Proud & Beautiful People
The Grand Canyon Express goes to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is located on Hualapai Nation territory. The canyon has 3 rims: north rim (only open in the spring and summer), south rim (this is the national park and it is located 300 miles from Las Vegas) and the west rim (only 150 miles from Las Vegas and on Hualapai Indian Land) The benefits to the West Rim are:
The West Rim is much closer than the South Rim (only 150 miles as compared to 300 miles).
The West Rim is home to the World Famous Sky-Walk (a glass bridge 4000' above the canyon floor).
The West Rim is mostly undeveloped allowing a more natural view of the canyon.
The West Rim allows the opportunity to do some light hiking or just relaxing while enjoying the view. Hike the hill at Guano Point for a 360 degree view of the canyon.If you want more specific details of our Grand Canyon Express tour please click Canyon Express on the menu to the left side of this page.
Although our company specializes in comedians as tour guides, our Grand Canyon Tours ARE NOT comedy tours. However, our comedians do train all guides and driver/guides.
Tour runs Monday thru Saturday, pick-ups are 6 to 6:30 am
There is an $8.89 per person impact tax that is payable on the bus.
Bus size depends on the number of passengers booked. We run in vehicles that hold between 10 and 50. Not all buses have bathrooms.
We do not recommend booking anything in town the evening of your tour because although we are usually on schedule nobody can foresee such things as late passengers, traffic issues, flat tires (especially since we have to travel down a 9 mile unpaved road to get to the west rim) and bad weather.
There are times when we (like all tour bus companies) carry more than one tour on a bus. If you are on the express and travel with the VIP you have an option to upgrade to our meal option. It includes a hot breakfast in Boulder City, Nevada and lunch at the Canyon for food costs of $20. They now both return at 5:00.
Below are some links to reviews about our company and specifically our Hoover Dam Tours the Hoot & Hoover and the Ultimate Dam VIP Tour:
Purchasing any Grand Canyon Tour qualifies you to purchase our Ultimate Dam VIP Tour for only $60 per person.
Taken from an actual review on YELP.com:
We had purchased a Groupon Deal that allowed us to have a discount of
51%, but after our tour and hearing the feedback from our friends about
other tour companies, I feel I would have paid DOUBLE the regular price
for what we experienced.
This tour is not one of our comedian guided tours.
