17 Day Tour from Las Vegas to Las Vegas

2021 Tour Details View 2020 Tour Details »

Fetch a pail of wonder on this ultimate bucket list vacation to six western states and the country’s most popular parks, memorials, and monuments. Grand Canyon. Grand Teton. Yellowstone. Mt. Rushmore. Arches. Bryce Canyon. Zion. Get ready to cross them all off your list as you cross through the spectacular scenery of Arizona, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming on this essential national parks vacation. In between the canyons, peaks, arches, and geysers, you’ll be equally wowed by waterfalls and wine tastings, forests and 4-wheel drive tours, famous Indian battlefields and even a buffalo safari. VIP experiences go beyond the presidential sculptures of the Black Hills to a two-night stay at the historic Game Lodge at Custer State Park, which served as the “Summer White House” to president Calvin Coolidge. This national parks tour also includes visits to the capital cities of Denver and Salt Lake City – and the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas.

Feeling lucky? Whether you take in a show, shop at designer boutiques, lounge by your hotel pool, or try your hand at poker, adding two full days in Vegas to your national parks vacation is no gamble. Included in your Las Vegas extension is a trip on the High Roller Observation Wheel with grand views of the city and the Strip.

We’ve prepared everything you need for the perfect vacation—from hand-selected hotels to expert Local Guides and included VIP sightseeing access to the world’s iconic sites. Your Globus Tour Director is always there to help you make the most out of your free time!

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

ANDREW MORAN

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

Born in Salisbury, England, I left England at the age of nine and ended up in Los Angeles. Some of my hobbies include travel, flying (I have my license to fly small, single-engine planes), gardening (growing my own fruits and veggies is awesome), and landscaping (it gives me a chance to learn about different trees and plants). My advice to travelers is to come with an open mind and look forward to learning new things. What makes other places so special is that they're not home!
