TourGuy.com, an online tour and travel source for adventure and ecotourism tours, has added a new South Rim Grand Canyon tour to its offerings. The tour, which departs from Las Vegas, includes several photo stops along Route 66.
Route 66, which was once referred to as the “Main Street of America” and the “Mother Road” linked Chicago to Los Angeles. Most maps no longer include the historic Route 66, but several states, such as Arizona, maintain its markers.
On the tour, stops include the Hoover Dam, the Route 66 Train Museum, Bright Angel Point on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Yavapai Point on the South Rim.
“Yavapai Point is my favorite spot in the Grand Canyon because it provides three unobstructed views and places you closest to the river,” said James Hoke, president of TourGuy.com.
Given the length of the tour, it includes a continental breakfast, packed lunch and unlimited water and snacks. The total tour time is approximately 14 hours from the complimentary resort pickup to the drop off. Transportation is provided on a VIP-class mini motorcoach.
