Will you be visiting Las Vegas any time soon? Then consider taking a Grand Canyon bus tour to the South Rim. It will give you a chance to relax a little after all the glitz on the Strip. And as an added benefit, the tours are less expensive during the winter.

You can take a tour to the southern portion of the canyon every day except Christmas. This is great news because the Canyon is absolutely beautiful during the winter months. Why? For one thing, the crowds are smaller then, plus the scenery is beautiful and you may even get to see some snow.

Trips typically depart in the morning around 7 a.m. There are no late tours. The early morning bus tours don't return until about 9:00 at night, so they can't really get started any later. You want to be careful about making evening plans on the day of your tour because you may not get back in time.

The Route

The route taken includes going past Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. After you cross over the bypass bridge and enter Arizona, most of the tours will stop long enough for you to take some pictures of the Hoover Dam. The stop is not long enough to do anything else. Besides, when you stop, it takes time away from your tour of the National Park.

The Hoover Dam is really cool though, so if you want to see it, you can always book a separate tour.

The bus usually rolls into the Rim around noon. Once there you can tour Grand Canyon Village and see Mather and Yaki Points. Typical time spent inside the Park is up to 3 hours, which is plenty of time to see and enjoy the best landmark sites.

The Grand Canyon bus tours are all-inclusive most of the time so the price includes, fees, taxes, Park fees, and fuel charges along with lunch. I don't know if I named all the potential fees but suffice it to say that the price you pay during online checkout is final and fixed and you will not pay more.

Cold Weather

Expect the temperatures to be cold in the winter. Remember, this rim sits at 7,000 feet in elevation, so snow is a common occurrence. Be sure to dress warmly. That includes a coat, gloves, hat, sweater, and long pants. A pair of closed-toe shoes in good condition are also suggested (and wool socks!).

It is possible you might have to cancel your tour or reschedule it due to bad weather. That just comes along with going to the canyon during the winter. However, when you buy seats from a reputable tour operator, you get your money back if a trip has to be canceled. If you would rather, you can get the tour rescheduled. You can even change your mind and cancel the tour with 24 hours notice and you will get a refund.

Booking Your Tour

These tours are popular so get your seats in advance. It is a good idea to book at least 72 hours ahead of time. You should also buy your seats online. You will find the best deals there. Most companies have an Internet rate that is lower than you can find anywhere else.
