    • Look Tours

      Grand Canyon National Park Jun 12, 2014 at 9:17 AM

      Has anyone heard of and/or taken a tour to the Grand Canyon through Look tours operating out of Las Vegas? They offer pick up & delivery service at your hotel, take you to the new arch overlooking the Canyon, stop at Hoover Dam
      and include lunch at a few choices. Need to know if they are reliable and if the tour is a good one. Thank you.

    • Where to buy tickets?

      Grand Canyon National Park Jul 5, 2014 at 8:48 AM

      I am visiting the Grand Canyon in a few weeks. My hotel is in Tusayan and I am planning to go by bus to the GC visitor center. According to the park's homepage, a valid park pass must already be presented when entering the bus. The homepage ( further says that passes are sold in several businesses in Tusayan, e.g. the IMAX theater.

      However, if I got it correctly, then only Vehicle passes are sold in Tusayan but no individual permits. Thus I was wondering where I can get such a pass. The only option I see currently is to walk from Tusayan to the park entrance, buy the ticket, walk back to Tusayan and enter the bus. But this is certainly not how it's intended. I could not find the possibility for online purchases either.

      Thanks in advance for any advices.

      How Close is Firesky Resort to Scottsdale's Main Attractions and Highlights?

      by falexis Online Now Sep 22, 2007 at 9:38 AM


      I tried to read as many as the "I'm visiting Scottsdale, what should I do?" posts in this forum so that I wouldn't be wasting your times with the same old question. I normally have time to thoroughly do some research on places I plan to visit, but there's not much time now for that. I'm planning to stay at the Firesky resort and not sure whether I should go to their in-house spa for services. Are there cheaper spas in the area which are just as or more wonderful experiences? Also, all the talk I've noticed about hiking spots, are these spots right within Scottsdale, or will I have to drive an hour or so from town. I was hoping to skip the car rental thing (I have to save money and sanity somewhere) and just venture on my own two feet... or at least on the fine bus and cab options offered by the resort and the town. Any and all ideas are welcomed. Thanks!
