My husband and I stayed for a week at the Mirage and tried to see everything we could in 7 days. Although this took an entire day, it was WELL worth it! The tour bus picked us up at our hotel on the strip early in the morning. Breakfast was waiting! Muffins, nuts, granola, juice... enough snacks for the morning ride. We drove to the Hoover Dam and watched a History channel video along the way for background info. Fantastic! We were able to get out on the bridge a bit away for a great photo op. We then drove to the Grand Canyon, which took about 4 hours. We watched a movie on the way there and another History channel film when we got closer. We arrived around lunch and were given 3 or so hours to walk the rim. Perfect amount of time to see some amazing views, snap some great pics, and have a picnic lunch which the tour company also provided (sandwiches and snacks). We watched another couple of movies on the way back and were dropped off at our hotel right about dinner time. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. All in all, a great value and worthwile use of a day!
