So . . about $100 a day for bed, breakfast & transportation between sites? Not too bad. How many people on your tour? All young people .. what sort of ages?

There is a shuttle from Williams and Flagstaff to the South Rim:

But you haven't told us how long you have to make this trip? Because of the distance, you're looking at hotel stays any way you slice it so it won't be a quickie deal to do. There are 1-day bus tours from Vegas but yuck, you spend many hours on the road for a mere 2-3 hours at the South Rim itself. I always, ALWAYS recommend at least two nights if at all possible - even from Vegas - in case one of those days is a wash-out: I've seen that happen to some unhappy tourists.

There is a bus trip or two from Vegas which also include a stay at one of the park hotels. They are not cheap, really, but it's an option.

And as you're looking around at options, beware of any which say they go to the "Grand Canyon" or "Grand Canyon WEST." The amazing pictures you've seen are from the National Park so make sure it's the G.C. National Park or G.C. South Rim they go to.

Alia resurrected the thread with the link. That type of activity is usually spam but the link is good & some people might be interested. I was because there is not much info like that on these forums.

Everything that you have listed and also sightseeing tours and entrance tickets to the National Parks. As for people...when I was on the tour the group was about 20 people, students)
