7. From Las Vegas: Zion and Bryce Canyon Guided Day Tour
Visit two of Utah’s national parks, Bryce Canyon and Zion, on a guided day trip for a small group. Discover a surreal desert landscape of sandstone cliffs, canyons, and the scenic views of unique rock formations. Enjoy a customized lunch and explore your surroundings by hike or by shuttle.
Begin your tour with your guide as you drive from Las Vegas to your first stop, Bryce Canyon National Park. Once you arrive, drop by the Visitor Center for a free map of the park, meet the park rangers, and shop for a souvenir of this unique experience.
Afterwards, hike or ride with a shuttle to the upper rim of the amphitheater and see the world’s most abundant view of hoodoos, or totem-like rock formations, in the valley below. The Rim Trail provides iconic lookouts, including Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point, and Bryce Point.
Your tour continues as you descend into the valley on the Queen's Garden Trail. Learn about the history and formation of hoodoos and other rock formations from your guide. Admire the stunning Rainbow Point and Yovimpa Point and then enjoy lunch provided by your guide.
Next, explore the wonders that make up Zion National Park. Gaze at the fortress-like mountains as you drive on the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway through the famous tunnel, which goes straight to the heart of Zion. Once you've arrived, stop for a visit to the Zion Human History Museum.
After your museum visit, your guide will take you to see Zion's iconic viewpoints. The adventure continues at Angel's Landing. Stop by the Narrows, Riverside, and Canyon Overlook Point for stunning views.
To complete your sightseeing of Zion National Park, your guide will take you to the Court of Patriarch, Zion Lodge, and Big Bend. Soak up the natural beauty surrounding you as you hear about the history of the park. Finally, enjoy the relaxation of the return drive to Las Vegas.
