Join us for a New Years’ holiday celebration to the city that never sleeps – Las Vegas.

New Year’s Eve in Vegas is like no other place in the world, with multiple casino resorts joining together to produce a fireworks display unlike any other.

You can literally see the incredible fireworks display from just about anywhere on the famous Las Vegas strip, as the fireworks are launched over the strip casino resorts amid the glow of the famous Vegas neon lights.  It truly lights up the Vegas strip and the skies above like nothing you will ever see anywhere else, And best of all, the strip is closed to vehicle traffic on new year’s eve from 4pm until after the show, so you have no interference or disruption from any vehicles or headlights and you can just walk out from our resort onto the walkways in front of the strip to watch the spectacle unfold before your eyes.

We will be staying at the Luxor resort casino, right on the strip, with easy access to other famous casino resorts such as the MGM, the mirage and the Mandalay Bay.

A full day trip to the Grand Canyon west rim and hoover dam is included in your trip and an optional walk on the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk (only $25), an optional helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon with a pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River at the base of the canyon are available during our included trip to the west rim of the Grand Canyon.  An optional day trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, as well as an optional day trip to stunning Antelope Canyon are also offered on the following two free days.

 

Daily Itinerary

Saturday December 29th – Arrive into Las Vegas on your own leisure and make your way to our hotel, the five star Luxor Resort and Casino.   Luxor features 14 restaurants, plus food court and even a Starbucks. There are also several bars to light up the night and a world class spa.

We will be staying in Premium Pyramid rooms, each 420 square feet and featuring two queen beds.

Tonight we will have a welcome orientation followed by an optional group outing to see one of the famed Vegas shows.  Luxor features the magic of renowned magician Chris Angel, as well as the legendary Blue Man Group.   There are also many Cirque Du Soleil shows on the Vegas strip, plus so many more options.  Everything is easily accessible, either by walking along the strip, or taking the monorail system between the casinos.  There is also the huge Ferris wheel which offers a glorious view of the Vegas strip casinos and neon lights.  The High Roller Ferris Wheel is actually the highest Ferris wheel in the world.

 

Sunday December 30th – Today we will enjoy a full day tour to the Grand Canyon West Rim.

This sightseeing tour to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach equipped with restrooms, reclining seats, video monitors and large windows. Then relax as your professional coach driver make the 3-hour trek east, passing through Joshua tree forests and the Mojave Desert, and past the famous Hoover Dam and beautiful Lake Mead to the Grand Canyon. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon, enjoy three hours of exploring at the West Rim. Take a short walk to the Eagle Point and Guano Point overlooks to take in the amazing views. Visit the Hualapai Ranch for a wild west show and enjoy a delicious hot lunch available from a variety of different outlets (included in your trip price).

There are also many exciting optional add-ons and a variety of exciting possibilities.  First, consider adding a thrilling walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the Grand Canyon (Only $25 extra).  Secondly, at the Grand Canyon, there's an optional stunning helicopter/boat ride. Lift off high above the canyon in a helicopter, then swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor.  Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Additionally, enjoy a pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations.
