What to expect
This sightseeing tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Enjoy a light morning snack while making the drive east, passing through the Mojave Desert and the Black Mountains and Grand Wash Cliffs of Arizona along the way. Enjoy several hours exploring at the West Rim, with short hikes to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Also visit the Hualapai Ranch for a delicious barbeque lunch. You can upgrade your tour to include either a helicopter flight or admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Helicopter Option: Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on a private bluff just above the canyon floor. Walk around and get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Skywalk Option: Take a walk on the world famous glass bridge that overlooks the magnificent Colorado River 4,000 feet below you. This jaw-dropping perspective will help you gain a better appreciation of the canyon's staggering dimensions. This day tour also includes a complimentary photo stop at Hoover Dam, either before or after visiting the Grand Canyon. Please note: If you have selected the helicopter option, you must provide all passengers' individual body weights. If helicopter option is not selected, please enter 'Not Applicable' in the Passenger Weight field at checkout.

The Perfect Day
We had a great day with Thomas as our Detours guide touring both the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon West Rim. Even though we’re not morning people, we appreciated the 6:00a hotel pickup later in the day. Thomas was able to keep us ahead of the large groups/crowds and explained why he was asking us to do things a certain way. I’m a factual person who prefers concise communication, and Thomas was just my style! From the moment he picked us up, to the moment he dropped us off, he was full of information about Vegas, Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, and all areas in-between. We made several quick stops along the way with rest rooms, etc., which made this GI-fickle gal happy!! Thomas shared his knowledge about so many thing and he made it entertaining. What he didn’t know, my husband did, so...the perfect day!

Grand Canyon West Rim Tour
Feb 2020 • Family
We took a tour yesterday of the Grand Canyon West Rim. I can not recommend this tour enough. Our tour guide, James Phelps was wonderful! Friendly, informative, and quite the family photographer! If anyone is thinking about doing this tour...go. Totally worth it! Scenery is absolutely magnificent! Also, if you have a chance do the skywalk...do it! Thank you James for a wonderful experience!

Jimmy Vegas - Best Tour Guide
Dec 2019
If you can, book with Jimmy Vegas. We were a family of eight travelling together to the Grand Canyon. We had one of the best experiences ever with Jimmy. He was there to pick us up right on time, and dropped us off back at our hotel in time to make our dinner reservations. His knowledge is vast and interesting. He knows almost everything there is to know about the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon and everything else relating to the tour. Off the bat, he made us feel very comfortable with him and catered to all our needs. He took to us to a small little town called Boulder City for some breakfast which was very appreciated. All in all we had a wonderful time with him. He took us on a small hike, and stopped at souvenir stores so we can all get something. The day goes by so fast! Only difficult part was the lunch, for vegetarians there was not much to eat at the place we stopped. So pack snacks! Bring a camera with you ofcourse. The skywalk was quite average for me. I enjoyed just standing and looking from a quiet place. It is surreal. Hope everyone enjoys it! Thank you Jimmy, hope we see you again! Love from Vancouver.

Hello there! Wow, thank you for taking the time to write up your experience with Jimmy Vegas and DETOURS. We're delighted to hear that this was one memorable experience! Jimmy Vegas certainly accomplishes quite a bit out there on the road - his passion for the Southwest, guest satisfaction & combustibility. All of our guides do, but Jimmy Vegas certainly has a way about him that leaves guests wanting to go on tour after tour with him such as yourself! Time certainly does fly when you are having fun, that's why we recommend to take all those pictures! We are delighted as ever to hear about your experience and we cannot thank you enough for expressing your kind words about your entire trip. We hope that we see you again soon one day, thank you for allowing us to show you a piece of our Southwest to you! :)

Thomas the tour guide!!

We had an amazing day learning all about Las Vegas and visiting Lake Mead, Hoover Dam on our way to tour the Grand Canyon. Thomas did an incredible job guiding us and making our day special. He did so much to accommodate my family...if he could have made the weather warmer he would have done that too!!

Thomas gave us an incredible tour of the West Rim! We learned so much along the way and were continuously entertained by his stories and humorous nature. The tour itself was beautiful, although slightly freezing, and I would recommend this tour (and Thomas as a guide) to anyone who is visiting Las Vegas!
