Although Las Vegas is a world-class vacation destination in its own right, it has taken a major role as a doorway to the Grand Canyon. Many of the best Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas depart several times a day, which include Grand Canyon helicopter tours, Grand Canyon rafting trips, and bus tours. Tours are often packaged with the opportunities to experience Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Grand Canyon Skywalk and other exciting and beautiful places of interest. While tours to Grand Canyon West are the most common destination from Las Vegas, you'll also find air, coach and helicopter tours to the South Rim. There are Grand Canyon tour options from Las Vegas available to fit every schedule — from a half-day to the West Rim, or a full-day trek to the West or South Rim. So take some time to leave the bright lights of Las Vegas and explore one of the world's greatest natural treasures.
