The Grand Canyon was carved over millions of years by a river that just couldn't get its smile quite right. Soak in the most labored-over sculpture in history with this Groupon.

Led by veteran guides, the Grand Canyon express tour whisks guests through memorable vistas and across the border splitting Nevada and Arizona on its way to the famous landmark. During a pit stop in Boulder City, sightseers on the express tour may purchase a breakfast or lunch from a local shop or, with the ultimate tour, receive a hot, made-to-order breakfast at Boulder City and a hot lunch on the rim on at Guano Point or Wild West Ranch. Jaunts cross into Arizona over the Mike O'Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, just 1,600 feet from the Hoover Dam and its adjoining beaver-art museum. The tour's Grand Canyon stop lingers for three hours and includes a visit to Indian Village, where a self-guided tour introduces guests to the lifestyle and rituals of the Hualapai tribe. After Indian Village and Eagle Point, tours continue on to Guano Point, which affords a spectacular view of the canyon. Eagle Point derives its name from a noble bird-shaped rock formation at the spot, and tour takers can view the canyon from an avian perspective with an optional stroll across Skywalk, a glass bridge jutting out 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. Named for the product of the bat-filled mine at its base, Guano Point grants a 360-degree view of the area, earned after a hike up its hill, which remains free of fences, guardrails, and tsk-tsking grandmothers. After the Points, buses roll on for a stop at a gift shop and then back to Vegas between 5 and 5:30 p.m., leaving time in the day for other Vegas attractions. Pickups start at 6 a.m. downtown, with the last pickup leaving The Excalibur at 6:25 a.m.
This is not a comedy tour. Tours will take place during the government shutdown.
Comedy on Deck Tours
Based in Las Vegas, Comedy on Deck Tours began escorting sightseers on tours of nearby natural wonders in 2003. The company stands out among other tour companies by employing big personalities as tour guides. Many of the tours are led by professional standup comedians who lend levity to walks along the top of the Hoover Dam and paddleboat rides on Lake Mead. After catching their breath, chuckled-out tour takers have complimented the guides for seamless weaving of history, geography, and family-friendly punch lines.
They make the day fun and are very informative.callitalullaby, TripAdvisor, 9/19/12
