If you're looking for an experience that will forever change the way you view nature and our planet, consider one of the coach trips from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon National Park. These tours offer you a convenient way to explore one of the most popular parks in America. They're also really affordable!

You can go to the West or South Rim when you leave from Vegas on a bus tour. These trips depart early in the morning and get back after dark. You will put in a full day of exploring the region and will welcome getting back to your comfy hotel room that evening. Because you'll be tired, it is probably best to avoid buying show tickets for the same evening.

A coach trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is about a 5-hour-ride from Vegas. Once you enter the Park, you'll have up to three hours to explore the canyon's sights. You will see notable lookouts like Yavapai Observation Station, Yaki Point, and Mather Point. The final stop is usually the South Rim's historic Grand Canyon Village. In the Village, you can shop in the gift stores, dine at a restaurant, or visit a museum.

On the other hand, it you take the trip to the West Rim from Vegas, it is only a 2-hour ride. After you get to Grand Canyon West, you will see the Indian Cultural Center, Hualapai Ranch, Guano Point, and Eagle Point. You can make your trip even more exciting by adding on additional options. These fun filled adventures include rafting down the Colorado River, riding a chopper to the floor of the Grand Canyon, and walking out on the thrilling transparent Skywalk.

These fun motor coach tours include Park fees, the services of a tour guide, breakfast, lunch, and even free transportation to and from your hotel on the Vegas Strip. While you're driving to the canyon you'll see Lake Mead and stop for photos at Hoover Dam. The buses are ideal for sightseeing since they have over sized windows, clean restrooms, and reclining seats.

Always book your seats as early as possible because these bus trips are very popular and sell out quickly especially during the busy months from April through November. Booking early helps ensure you get the tour and side trips you want to take.

Book your coach trip online as it's the easiest and cheapest way. Buying your tickets through your hotel concierge or at a kiosk costs a lot more than buying them online in advance. The tour operators’ websites offer the best deals on Grand Canyon bus trips. The discount you get might be as much as 30%. I recommend you follow the same strategy.

If you'll be visiting Las Vegas, a Grand Canyon motor coach trip should be on your itinerary. The National Park is only 120 miles from Vegas, and it's a rewarding day trip.

The South Rim is noted as having spectacular scenic vistas. The West Rim is popular because that is the only place you can ride a chopper to the canyon floor. But, you'll have a spectacular time no matter which part of the canyon you decide to visit. You'll see nature and the world differently once you experience the natural wonders of the Grand Canyon!
