Leaving Hoover Dam we travel through the desert, before arriving in the small Arizona town of Kingman, where we pick up the freeway towards the Grand Canyon. At Williams, Arizona, we head north for about 50 miles (80 kilometres), towards the South Rim.
Depending on the time of the year, the amount of daylight, and weather conditions, there will be some days when we will take off from the Williams airport. Flying from here will save you almost an hour of travel time.
If we don't leave from Williams, the Grand Canyon airport departure will be as detailed below.
Day 1 - Grand Canyon to Monument Valley - About 1 1/4 hours
You will climb into a small plane for a flight over the Grand Canyon, before heading east for Monument Valley over some beautiful scenery. At Monument Valley you will enjoy wonderful views of the rock formations from the air, before landing at the airport.
Day 1 - Monument Valley - About 1 1/2 hours to two hours
Up next is a tour of Monument Valley conducted by a Navajo (Indian) guide in an off road vehicle. Visitors love to see the buttes, mesas and other sandstone formations that are so prevalent in the Monument Valley area. Monument Valley is actually not really a valley at all, but a relatively flat plain surrounded by red cliffs, with the buttes, as well as the remnants of ancient volcanoes, towering from the earth.
You will experience the authentic west as your guide takes you into the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. As you might imagine there are numerous photo opportunities, and your guide will stop frequently. He or she will also tell you about Navajo customs and traditions along the way.
Amongst the sites that your tour will likely take in are movie locations, 1000 foot monoliths, rug weaving, and, of course, the famous monuments are visited.
Once you have landed our guide will pick you up at the airport and take you into the Grand Canyon. On this tour we will spend about an hour there. You will visit Bright Angel Lodge, where there are several great views, and also have the opportunity to get yourself something to eat, buy souvenirs, and take some awesome photographs!
It's now time to return to Vegas. The tour heads south out of the Grand Canyon towards Williams, where the freeway runs west to Kingman. After a comfort stop at Kingman you'll travel north, crossing over the Hoover Dam Wall. It is a short ride from Hoover Dam back to Sin City.
