Las Vegas Sightseeing Tours
On foot, you'd have to walk too far; on a bus, you couldn't visit the Las Vegas Strip casinos that are the main focus of interest. What bus tours there are head out from the city instead, mainly to the destinations in the vicinity - Lake Mead, Red Rock Canyon, and so on.  http://pinkjeeptours.com

Hoover Dam Tour
This Premium Express bus tour provides a narration of Las Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City as you travel to the Dam. The tour also features a video of the construction of the dam. $74.99   http://www.hooverdamtourcompany.com/express.html

Grand Canyon Tours
Whatever impression you may have, the Grand Canyon is not close to Las Vegas. 
The South Rim, the most famous tourist area, is 290 miles away by road, and the quieter North Rim only a little less. A Colorado river viewpoint on the Hualapai Indian Reservation, only 130 miles from Las Vegas, called West Rim, but the views are not on the same scale. Trying to see the South Rim on a day-trip by bus involves at least a ten-hour round-trip ride, and is not recommended. Competition on air tours, however - including an over flight of Hoover Dam - means that you may be able to find prices as low as $100 per person, which isn't bad for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. http://viator.com
