Exploring Grand Canyon West Rim by Air & Ground Tour from Las Vegas
You will notice in the tour agency brochures – there are tours to mostly either West Rim or South Rim. The South Rim is the wider and deeper part of the canyon. It is the more commercialized part of the Grand Canyon. Over 90% of Grand Canyon visitors travel to the South Rim and its Grand Canyon Village where amenities and lodging comforts are more amiable to family travel adventure. The South Rim is open year-round and offers over 2,000 hotel rooms and in addition to hotels, there are restaurants, museums, souvenir shopping and the convenience of park ranger services and programmes. The West Rim is just as beautiful, but far more rustic and undeveloped. This part of the canyon is also known as “Indian Country” due to the number of Indian Reservations that occupy the land. Either Rims, you still get great views of the Grand Canyon.
