Grand Canyon Bus 5 Reasons to RSVP Your Trip By Sabine Warner | http://www.grandcanyon123.com If you plan on exploring Grand Canyon from Vegas, You should take a luxury motor coach. Don't let the word "luxury" spook you. Coach tours are probably the most economical way to go to the canyon. It's also the key reason why travelers sign up for them in droves. Book ahead of time and make certain you get your seats. Listed below are five more reasons why it's wise to RSVP this trip: 1. You won't get bumped. Almost 40 million people visit Vegas annually. This includes big groups, families, and individuals. Most take a Grand Canyon bus tour. If you are trying to book a trip for the next day, cross your fingers. You will likely be put on a waiting list. That ensures nothing. I've personally experienced being bumped when a business group showed up at the last minute. By RSVP'ing, I'd have been untouchable. 2. You will enjoy the best seats. The front and the middle are the best parts. Better A/C and views. Companies fill the bus from front to back. Book as far in advance as possible and there's a good chance you'll get some prime real estate. Same goes for group seating: If your reservation is last minute, your people will be dispersed about the bus or negotiating with other passengers to trade seats. 3. Peace of mind. Getting ready for a trip takes a lot of thought and energy. For me, the very last thing I want to do is make reservations at the destination. It's a headache and in the end you probably won't get what you wish. Lock-down your bus tour before you get to Vegas and it's simply a case of getting a wake-up call and boarding the bus. 4. You secure priority scheduling. Weather at the Grand Canyon can be unpredictable. Tours have been known to be rescheduled due to snow or high winds. You cannot control Mother Nature. You can determine your re-booking if you're a pre-paid customer who has booked in advance. If this ever happens to you, re-confirm the new tour date and time and see if you can improve your seating arrangement. There will be people that can't make the following day trip, thus freeing up some seats. 5. You get the right price. I field this question on a regular basis: "Is it cheaper to buy my canyon bus tickets now or when I'm in Vegas?" You know my answer: Always buy in advance. If you get your seats in Vegas, count on paying out the nose for them. By comparison, book online and you'll a) save lots of money and b) you'll lock down the price. Online is where all the best bus deals are. I've seen some that take 35% off. There are high seasons for bus tours and during these periods prices go up with demand. Purchase early on the Internet and your savings really start to add up.
Las Vegas to Grand Canyon bus tours go to the West Rim or the South Rim. The West Rim, which is only 120 miles from Vegas, is known for fun-based activities like the Grand Canyon Sky Walk. The South Rim, which purists refer to as the "real" canyon, is the place you go for views. This rim is 270 miles from Vegas and requires a five-hour drive. Bus tours to the West Rim include helicopter rides to the bottom (only available at this rim) and a steel-pontoon boat ride down the Colorado River. South Rim tours can upgraded to include a helicopter tour across the Dragoon Corridor, the widest, deepest part of the national park. These trips are all-inclusive and come with free hotel shuttle service, a light breakfast, and a box lunch. Motor coaches are state-of-the-art and are decked out with oversized windows, recliner seats, TVs, and spotless lavatories. The driver-guides are 100% professional and are founts of information. Buses are also pre-loaded with tour narrations translated into more than 10 languages.

Buses are modern and comfortable and the trips are all-inclusive, which means the only thing you need to bring is your sense of adventure. Due to their popularity, I highly recommend that you book in advance. Doing this assures your seats and save you from the frustration that comes with buying these tours in Vegas. #30#
