Pickup details

We limit the amount of hotels we visit for pickups, so that we can spend more time at the Canyon, and less time on the bus doing pickups. Our hotels for pickup are strategically placed up and down the strip including downtown, so your own hotel should be either right next door or a very short walk away from where you will meet the bus.

What To Expect

This tour to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam from Las Vegas is perfect for those who don’t want to deal with the logistics of finding transport, parking, and meals, but who also want some time to explore the expansive beauty of this area on their own.

Along the way, your driver and guide will make a few stops. You’ll stop at a restaurant for a hot breakfast (included). Then get your cameras ready for awesome shots of the Hoover Dam.

You’ll drive by a Joshua Tree forest to make a quick stop, and then you’ll get to Grand Canyon West where you’ll have a few hours to explore on your own. After this, you’ll drive to Grand Canyon Skywalk in Eagle point to walk on the glass bridge.

Great tour
Michelle_S, Feb 2024
Tour was great and very organized! The only suggestion for improvement is to provide what bus or sign to look for initially.
Ralph was our tour guide....
Angel_L, Feb 2024
Ralph was our tour guide. He was awesome! Friendly, funny and informative! Love his knowledge of Las Vegas.
Pat Chase is awesome
william_p, Feb 2024
It was like nothing I could ever imagine experiencing. Bus was on time. Great news. The ride out was fun because Oat Chase is hilarious. (Book the comedy tour portion). We had a blast as Pat entertained us as a guide and comedian. Trip went by quickly. The views were amazing. Guano Point is by far the highlight. Indescribable. Just do it. You will really enjoy it.
Great excursion
Janisse_B, Feb 2024
Ian was very friendly and informative. He was a great helpful with taking amazing photos at the Grand Canyon. I would definitely recommend this excursion.
Well worth it!
Mike_F, Feb 2024
Ralph with Comedy on Deck was perfect for us. Food was more than enough and entire experience was stress free.
Worth the trip

Joe enjoyably entertained us on the bus, along with our terrific bus driver Mel. We enjoyed the complete trip and the meals.
Superb from start to finish
Peter_C, Feb 2024
I can't recommend this tour enough - this was the first time going on a tour like this and having done a lot of research beforehand, I still wasn't fully sure what to expect to be honest. However, myself and my 2 friends were not disappointed. We were picked up on time at our hotel, welcomed warmly onto the coach and the day just got better from there. One of the main reasons was our host Joe - what a rock star that guy is as a host - the energy he had so early in the morning was superb - but his knowledge and explanation of what we were doing and why was brilliant - we learnt so much as we explored the Grand Canyon and stopped off for a picture at the Hoover Dam - even getting back earlier than advertised but without having compromised any time at the sites. I highly recommend this tour if you want to see the incredible sites of the Grand Canyon, learn about the history but have some fun and laugh at the same time - if you get Joe as your guide, your in for an even more fantastic day!
Greatest tour ever!
Jose_P, Feb 2024
Man the experience from start to finish was absolutely amazing! I am so glad that me and my wife booked with you guys. I would definitely suggest a tour to any of my friends and family. Our tour guide was Joe he was probably the best tour guy you could ask for to be with you the entire day and give you just the right amount of comedy and information while going to the Grand Canyon. He was very informative and very very helpful and catered to every buddies needs. And also the driver Mel had a great attitude, and most importantly got us there safely and returned us back safely. So overall, our experience was extremely satisfying, and I we would love to do it again soon.😃
Totally Worth it!

Tony was hilarious and did a great job leading our group along with driver Manny. Views and pictures for days, food was good and we were well taken care of. Lots and lots of laughs.
Amazing Tour!
Crystal_D, Feb 2024
Omg this tour was so perfect! Great pickup locations, bus was nice and had charging stations, bus driver was extremely nice and helped with my stroller, the tour guide was funny without being corny, super nice, took out pics at the canyon, made sure he gave us helpful tips for not having to wait in long lines, and helped with food lines. Super knowledgeable and provided cool information on the way to and from canyon. First stop was breakfast and it was soooo good. Wasn’t expecting that, we had plenty of options and the service was fast! Lunch was also great. Had two options for lunch and the option to eat there or take with us. We even made a pit stop at a gas station to get drinks for the ride and room for a much cheaper rate than what the hotels charged. Weather was beautiful my kids and I enjoyed the tour throughly!!
A beautiful trip to remember!!
Camille_C, Feb 2024
Patrick our tour guide was awesome ! He was do funny and entertaining. Our bus driver, Bernie was fantastic. Pick up details were easy to follow. The trip was beautiful. Highly recommend Comedy Tour!
Would book again
Marcela_T, Feb 2024
Our tour guide Parker was awesome, definitely didn't get bored on the bus. Breakfast and lunch were included and were both good, they gave us water throughout the day... The only downfall of the skywalk is that they do not allow you to take your cell phones or cameras on the skywalk, you have to purchase pictures through them, and the price begins at $50.
Awesome tour!
Jackie_K, Feb 2024
Patrick was the best tour guide. He made sure the bus trip was fun, entertaining and comfortable. He offered a lot of information about the sites as well as telling funny stories. Highly recommend!
Gorgeous sites
Margaret_O, Feb 2024
Good day. Breakfast and lunch was good. Beautiful sites. Our bus had engine trouble so we got back very late. This messed up my evening plans but what can you do. Driver was skilled. Tour guide was friendly and attentive. Wished there was a little less talking from tour guide on the bus.
Touring trip
Tammy_M, Feb 2024
The tour guide Tony and bus driver Bernice were great. Very informative and keep the bus engaged in the tour. Tony was funny and keep the bus laughing.
Enjoyed the Grand Canyon...
Michael_B, Feb 2024
Enjoyed the Grand Canyon and Skywalk. Hoover Dam was nice but wished we could have gone lower for the view.
Good day viewing the Dam & Grand Canyon
Shirley_B, Feb 2024
Our guide Pat & driver Will were very good. The banter was both informative & amusing. They worked hard to make it an enjoyable experience. The Hoover Dam is a brilliant piece of engineering. The Grand Canyon is spectacular & no photo does it justice. We set off a little late because coach 2 was delayed. The shuttle buses between the points at the Canyon were a bit of a hassle. So not sure what VIP bus access there was I thought the Sky Walk at Eagle Point gave a brilliant view over the Canyon but was plagued with the guys wanting to take your photo. Guano Point is magnificent including the views of the Colorado River. Spend time here. Overall a great day & one I would recommend so thanks guys.
West Rim/Skywalk. Fabulous!
Pam_H, Feb 2024
The skywalk was amazing! That in itself was worth the trip. The Canyon was breathtaking! Makes you realize how small you are. Definitely another one of Gods masterpieces!! Andrew was the greatest! So friendly and kept us informed! Also very funny 😊
