South Rim VIP Express

There is no better way to see the Grand Canyon in one day from Las Vegas!

Tour summary

Visit the most popular part of the Grand Canyon and see more than any other tour that leaves Las Vegas.  By traveling with a small group you have more time to see the Grand Canyon and can go places the big buses can’t.  While most companies go to the busiest area of the Grand Canyon with bus loads of tourists everywhere our tour will drive you to a variety of viewpoints at less busy places to make for a more unique experience. You will have 3 hours or more to see many unique viewpoints.  All of our tours feature great guides in comfortable new vehicles with leather seats and really good leg room.

why go vip?

7 people per vehicle usually means 2-3 hotel pick ups and then get on the road.

This is half as many hotels as other companies that take 9-15 people which could easily add 1 hour to the day!

No vehicle changes

You travel in the vehicle you are picked up in and do not go to a terminal. You are also driven to viewpoints in the same vehicle

See the Welcome to Vegas Sign in the morning before the crowds

Get that perfect picture without people in the background

Comfort stops where you can get what you want to eat

Most food offered on tours is very limited (and often very cheap) to save time. A small group can stop at a greater variety of places and not lose time.

2017 or newer vans

Less chance of breakdowns, squeaks,rattles etc etc etc (yes it can still happen)

Virtually eliminate delays caused by passengers

Less people on a fully guided tour where the guide drives you to all viewpoints and communicates directly to you hardly ever results in delays.

See more viewpoints with greater variation.

Most people don’t even see the Colorado River on the big bus tours and you will have a hard time finding another tour that goes to viewpoints other than Mather Point and Bright Angel Lodge (Yavapai Point is between Mather and Bright Angel). Our tour covers multiple viewpoints to show more diversity

Go to viewpoints that are less crowded

Seeing the Grand Canyon is a once in a lifetime experience and there is over 30 miles between the various viewpoints at the South Rim. Our tour gives you some time in the busy Grand Canyon Village and then we also take you to multiple viewpoints in less busy areas so you can fully appreciate the Canyon.

Our tour is about maximum sightseeing with no wasted time

With only 7 people per group everything goes faster between less hotel pick ups to comfort stops to parking at the viewpoints. Our tour can show you much more of the Grand Canyon in less time than other tours that only go to 2 viewpoints. (We give you 1 hour at one of those viewpoints) Also our guides won’t stop at every tourist trap East of Las Vegas to get kick backs. If you want the gift shop tour that gets back at 11:00pm this tour is not for you.


The guides can adapt and change the viewpoints at the canyon to fit the situation such as inclement weather, road closures, etc. In situations of extreme weather you have the ability to get in the van and go to viewpoints without being stuck outside. Sometimes there are no views on one side of the park but clear at others, your guide can drive to try to find those clear spots. You can’t do that on a walking tour or using free park shuttles that travel slow with lots of stops.


Lets face it the best views of the Grand Canyon are not close to Las Vegas but yet close enough to be seen in a day. Even those that drive on their own have to be ready for the marathon of long hours. While some people will trade 2 hours of wasted time to save a dollar our tour is for those that want to pay a fair price to see more in less time. Our VIP tour easily gets back at least one hour earlier than the bus tours while showing you more viewpoints. In many cases it can save over 2 hours compared to alternative tour options. If you want to save even more time you can book a private tour and customize your itinerary HERE
