Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend some time frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $139, you get a Grand Canyon West Rim bus tour (a $189.99 value) and one general-admission ticket to The Rat Pack is Back in the Crown Theater at the Rio Hotel and Casino (a $62.10 value) from Grand Canyon Tour & Travel (a $252.09 total value, including tax). Children younger than 2 are free. A $5 fuel surcharge for the length of the tour is not included in this Groupon.
Grand Canyon Tour & Travel's adventurous pathfinders shepherd wayfarers on expeditions of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, and Las Vegas. The 11.5-hour West Rim bus tour begins at 6:30 a.m. as passengers board a deluxe motor coach from a location of their choosing (call 24–48 hours prior to your tour to confirm location) and turn their ocular sponges toward the windows to soak in the passing landscape. The horseless chariot will sally forth over the Hoover Dam bridge and Lake Mead, and through Black Canyon and Joshua Tree Forest before rolling to a stop at Grand Canyon West. Once the tour arrives at the grandest of canyons, members of the Hualapai Tribe will prepare a delicious barbecue lunch (included in the price) directly on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Before beginning the journey back, travelers can walk along the rim and marvel at the natural creations abounding the Canyon, such as the Great Thunderbird image and a mountainside crop circle of Wayne Newton's headshot. Tours arrive back to Las Vegas at approximately 4:45 p.m.
Today’s deal also includes one general-admission ticket to The Rat Pack is Back at the Crown Theater. This music-stuffed sack of entertainment is backed by a 12-piece big band, and ignites nostalgia for the days of swinging hits, singing telegrams, and chain-smoking bow ties.
