A guided tour is one of the best ways to acquaint yourself with a new city, second only to proclaiming yourself its king and observing the types of local produce that get tossed at you. Hit the ground running with this Groupon.
$99 for a Grand Canyon North Rim Bus Tour ($219.99 value)
The full-day tour begins when a professional driver picks up participants at their hotels amid the bright lights of Las Vegas, checks them in at the Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile underground valet, and then heads toward the vast, colorful landscape of the Grand Canyon. The air-conditioned coach shuttles passengers through parts of the canyon rarely seen by tourists. They pass by ranks of blue spruce, mountain ash, and grassland meadows at Kaibab National Forest while glimpsing mule deer and elk as they chatter about the late-night shenanigans of goshawks. They continue along canyon walls towering at an average elevation of 8,000 feet and witness the canyon's most panoramic views at Bright Angel Point. Tours also include a stop in Kanab, Utah, where passengers disembark to walk the often-filmed streets of Frontier Movie Town and peruse shops stocked with Southwest Indian and Western apparel. At the end of the day, the bus returns patrons to Las Vegas. Tours end as the bus drops tourists off at their hotels and immediately turns back into a pumpkin full of poker chips.
