|Prices for bus tours to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas are all over [url=http://www.fayatindia.com/giuseppe-zanotti.html]giuseppe zanotti[/url] the map. The reason for this is how operators market trips as all-inclusive. Some are [url=http://www.mxitcms.com/abercrombie/]abercrombie[/url] comprehensive, while some are bare bones. To help you get the right deal, let's look at what constitutes a standard bus tour. Here are the essentials:
1. Round-trip transportation
2. Deluxe [url=http://www.jeremyparendt.com/Barbour-Paris.php]barbour pas cher soldes[/url] motor coaches
3. Side-trips & rest stops
5. Time spent at the Park
Now let's look at this in more detail...
Tour operators play fast and loose with the term [url=http://m.pspana.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=2486516]abercrombie pas cher Comprehend Everything About Breast Implant Procedure In Ore[/url] "round trip." In your case, it means to and from the canyon as well as free hotel pick up and drop off. This might look like quibbling over the details. But let me tell you that after enjoying the canyon [url=http://www.2000gtr.com/bbs_cgi/joyful_take3/joyful.cgi]louboutin Getting The Ex-Boyf[/url] [url=http://www.achbanker.com/hollister.php]hollister[/url] for a day, the last thing you want to do is figure out how to get from some anonymous drop-off point to your hotel room that's miles down The Strip. Get it.
Not all luxury buses are created equal. Most Las Vegas tour companies are running [url=http://www.davidhabchy.com]barbour outlet[/url] new fleets with all the bells [url=http://www.fayatindia.com/giuseppe-zanotti.html]giuseppe zanotti pas cher[/url] and whistles (oversized seats, tip-top climate control, on-board TV's). However, some operate blended fleets of new and older models, and others are driving "gently worn" ones. Quality makes a difference, especially when it comes to tackling the final 10 miles of dirt road to Grand Canyon [url=http://www.mxitcms.com/abercrombie/]abercrombie milano[/url] West or putting in nine hours of road time to the South Rim. Trust your instincts: Book a trip with a company that drives the newer models.
The journey is as important as the destination. The route to the Rims starts out the same: Take Highway 93 South, past Lake Mead and over Hoover Dam, where you driver should stop and [url=http://www.diecastlinks.co.uk]hollister outlet[/url] let you sightsee the Dam. Not every tour does this. I recommend [url=http://www.villazuki.it]woolrich outlet online[/url] you find a tour that does because seeing the dam from a bus seat doesn't cut it. Also, if [url=http://www.lotogame.fr/hollisterfrance.php]www.lotogame.fr/hollisterfrance.php[/url] you are bound for the South Rim, rest stops matter - drive time each way is five hours.
The Grand Canyon is a magical experience: [url=http://www.villazuki.it]woolrich sito ufficiale[/url] You'll want to spend as much time there as possible. Two hours is the max for most tours. The great ones give you three. Take the later, especially if you are going to the South Rim, which features some terrific lookouts and a handful of great gift shops.
That's the basics. Now comes a series of upsells that I call "gotchas..."
1. Food - An absolute must for all South Rim trips. Some tour companies make lunch optional in order to offer their tour at the lowest price and then upsell it to you at the Park.
2. Park Entrance Fees - Both Rims have an entrance [url=http://www.anepf.fr]doudoune moncler pas cher[/url] fee. The great operators pick it up. Sub par tour operators make it an extra expense.
3. Fuel Surcharge - This was added into the package during the 2009 gas crisis. Gas is no longer $5 a [url=http://www.dearilievi.it]piumini moncler outlet[/url] gallon. The surcharge should be dropped. If it's still there, it's found money for the operator.
The best Las Vegas bus tour companies let you buy your tour on the Internet. I highly recommend that you book through [url=http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220683313529&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT]abercrombie milano Capturing [/url] the Web. Online savings can reach up to 35 %. I've booked tours with the [url=http://www.dearilievi.it]moncler outlet[/url] key players and can attest that they're sites are secure, safe, and efficient - after your transaction you'll receive a trip voucher in your inbox in a matter of minutes.
Getting to the Grand Canyon by bus, be it the West or the South Rim, is a snap from Las Vegas. It's also an incredible value. But you have to buy it smart. Read the tour descriptions. Consider your needs. Then buy it on the Internet and use the money you've saved at a canyon gift shop, a Vegas show, [url=http://www.achbanker.com/hollister.php]hollister france[/url] or at a nice restaurant.
