DAY 12 – Tuesday 07th July 2020

Grand Canyon Bus Tour and Las Vegas Helicopter ride

No matter how much one reads about the Grand Canyon or how many photographs one sees, nothing really prepares for the sight of it. One of the world's seven natural wonders, it's so startlingly familiar and iconic. Vast, magnificent and inarguably beautiful, the Grand Canyon is easily Arizona’s most distinguishable landmark – and a natural wonder that one simply must see to believe. Stretching 277 miles from end to end, steep, rocky walls descend more than a mile to the canyon’s floor, where the wild Colorado River traces a swift course southwest.

Take the Bus tour of The Grand Canyon and visit the amazing Skywalk, the glass bridge that is suspended 4000 Ft. above the Colorado River on the edge of the Grand Canyon. Its structure is made up of materials weighing the same as 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 Airplanes. Once back in Vegas, later in the night, enjoy the helicopter tour of the

Las Vegas strip.
