The Grand Canyon is an extremely popular place to visit while you are in Las Vegas. The least expensive way to see the Grand Canyon is by motorcoach (Bus) and it takes about 13-14 hours round trip from Vegas including a stop at the Boulder Dam, lunch, a snack, and several photo stops along the way. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question what do you think would be a good price to pay to entice you to take this one day Grand Canyon experience round trip from Las Vegas. The regular retail price for this type of trip is between $160 - $210 per person.    What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I have taken the bus tour and it was great.  I paid about $90 per person including all taxes and surcharges.  The next time I come back to VEgas, March, I am going again.  So I guess any price under $90 would be good for me.   Roger L.  Houston TX

My family has always wanted to see the Grand Canyon but with six of us the cost is pretty much out of our reach.  Maybe I could swing $40-$50 per person but I realize with the cost of gasoline going up I am sure there a lot of costs to operate one of those luxury buses.   Glen Hawkins  NY

I would pay $100 for my wife and I to see the grand canyon.  Hank & Billie Jean  MO

13 hours seems like a long time, but considering food stops, seeing the Dam, and several other photo stops at the Grand Canyon plus drive time i guess that would be a full day.  If the cost was in the $75 or less it would have my interest.  I dont think I would pay $160.  Dwight N  Miami Florida

The trip to the grand canyon is something I always wanted to do.  For me the price would need to be low so that I could buy a couple souvenirs of the experience.  I am a school teacher on a tight budget but it would be worth the savings.  Ann  Illinois

I agree with the others already posted on've got to keep the cost well under $99 to make it seem worthwile. I don't know if I would take a 14 hour trip to see the canyon by bus, but if that's offset by a really cheap price, then you can easily disguise the long travel time with the ruse of saving tons of money taking the bus instead of doing the trip on your own!   Stephan Doiron  Edmonton, AB Canada

 I think a buy one get one at half price would be enticing.   Eleanor Nosky  canton Mi

 I think the price they are chargeing now is ok. They put about 50 people on one of those busses, 50 people times $180.00 comes to $9000.00 a trip.To me it sounds like they are makeing way too much for that trip.But I guess if you don't have a car out there, $180.00 isn't bad. The Grand Cayon is about the neetest thing to see ,anywhere in the world.  steve   sedalia,mo.

13-14 hours on a bus and you call that a vacation. you couldn't pay me enough to take this trip. a 5 hour plane ride to vegas is long enough for me. to take that bus trip for lunch(which probably is a sandwich and snack) and get to take some photos and spend 12-13 hours on a bus, well no thank you.   ralph   hamden, ct

I have considered taking this trip several times on past visits to Vegas. It is'nt the cost that has held me from it but the Long bus ride and tieing up the entire day. Since the canyon IS something I'd really like to experience while on this earth, possibly right around $100 would entice me to go ahead and give it a try.   Eddie Schulz  Urbana,OH

I've been to the Grand Canyon several times. Have done it by coach, coach/helicopter and coach/airplane (South Rim and West Rim). The best price is for the coach/airplane combination with bus tour + flight over the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam etc: 200/250$.  But the bus-only tour has a lot of charm too, you're driving partly on Route 66, through the desert, the Joshua trees, stopping at Hoover Dam, Williams, AZ. I think 100/120 $ would be a right price for this one.   Micheline   Brussels  Belgium
