Bethlehem by Night Bus Tours depart from the Bethlehem Visitor Center, 505 Main St. A guide in period dress takes you back in time on a 45-50 minute tour of the Christmas City. Highlights include the unique religious heritage of the town under the guiding influence of its early Moravian founders and the progression of power and innovation that marked the city’s later entrepreneurial and industrial spirit. November 26-December 23 Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm.
There are two kinds of helicopter tours from which to choose: Air and landing. Air tours give you a bird’s eye view of the canyon, while landing packages take you to the top or bottom of the gorge and let you attach a number of side trips like a Colorado River boat ride or tickets to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. If you have the budget and the time, I always recommend going with a landing tour, as it’s a much more comprehensive and fulfilling experience.
Usually, the average coach trip will go to the two more popular destinations of the Grand Canyon, which are known as the West Rim and the South Rim. Most trips of this nature start up in the early morning hours and continue on for the whole day. The average bus company will have a coach trip that will pick up and drop off tourists at their hotels, which are usually located on the Las Vegas Strip.
All Aboard America should be comfortable and safe during the ride. Guests are treated to seats that are spacious and viewing windows that allow for maximum visibility. The drivers are fully trained, experienced and knowledgeable to describe the points of interest in a polite and interesting manner.
West Rim Bus, Helicopter and Boat. Take a 4,000-foot heli ride to bottom of canyon. Boat ride down the legendary Colorado River. Includes time at the top for sightseeing.
The South Rim bus tour from Vegas is a fantastic value at just $80. Read the fine print before you buy your tickets to make sure the tour you choose includes all the features you want such as a stop at the Hoover Dam.
If you are bored with land travel, perhaps a boat trip is what you are looking for. To the south, Vienna has got beautiful woods, and the environment is good for some peace and quiet. When you travel by boat, you get a totally different experience. For example, you get to see thermal springs, which you wouldn’t be able to catch a glimpse of if you travel by land.
Canyon bus tours to the West Rim offer phenomenal value. For less than $100 per person, you can be standing on the edge of the America’s greatest natural wonder. If you choose to upgrade your package, you can experience the Canyon’s floor and the Colorado River. The West Rim’s proximity to Las Vegas also makes it a stellar day trip for people of all ages. Next time you need a break from The Strip, book a bus trip. There’s a good chance it will change the way you look at the planet.
