    Funny you should say that....

    I was in Vegas for a conference in March and just had time to fit in a day trip to Grand Canyon. There are loads of day tours that you can book from your hotel or from outlets on the Strip. Be warned though, the tours are a whirlwind, you hardly get time to take it all in. We were picked up by bus at 7.00am and taken to the airport, 40 mins in a Twin Otter & we were at the Canyon. Sat around the terminal for 45mins waiting for the helicopter down to the Canyon floor, 30mins on a boat up the Colorado, helicopter back to the terminal, 15mins on a bus to Eagle Point. 1 hour there, back on the bus to Guano Point, lunch with the Injuns and an hour to run around gawping, back on the bus to the terminal, 40mins in the Twin Otter again and bus back to Bally's for 4.00pm Cost about $300 depending on where you book (hotels are by far the dearest). Despite the "itinerary", it was worth it. I would go back for the scenery and the rafting or trekking and try very hard not to be a tourist.

    If you are doing it yourself, hire a car or a Harley or catch a bus. There is a hotel being built at Eagle Point.

    My, that was quick! Thanks. We will be flying to the 'Big Ditch' in September and will land at Vegas, we intend to stay there for 2 nights and then want to go to Bryce for a night or two, then to the GC North Rim, we are meeting friends there with who we will be going down to Phantom Ranch for one night, then up to the South Rim, one night there and then back down, two nights at Phantom Ranch exploring the Canyon bottom then back to the North rim. Onwards then to Colorado, in their car
    Our problem is getting to Bryce and the GC, we can hire a car, but will not be going back to Vegas, do you know if it is possible to drop a car off at the North Rim? Or if there is transport one way to Bryce and/or GC
    The accommodation has been booked on N and S rim, also at the Phantom Ranch
