What You Can Expect
Arrive at the Grand Canyon's South Rim after about 1.5 hours on the road. Pause to take in your first views of the vast canyon from a viewpoint on the rim, then continue along the 23-mile drive that skirts the rim of the Grand Canyon. This driving tour is the main event of the day, with incredible views of the canyon at every turn and endless photo ops. Stop at viewpoints along the way, and learn about the Grand Canyon's geology, wildlife and history from your guide. You'll visit spots on the East Rim and South Rim, where Grand Canyon Village is located.
The rim tour takes about two hours, then stop for lunch at a restaurant on the rim. Afterward, have time to take a short nature walk or browse the souvenir shops before continuing along your drive. As you leave the canyon, pass through part of the large Navajo Nation and stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post, an authentic Navajo trading post. Browse the Native American arts and jewelry for sale, and hear more about the Navajo people.
Your tour winds down with a drive across the Navajo reservation, where you can see the Painted Desert and the Little Colorado River Gorge in the distance. Finally you'll return through the mountains to Flagstaff, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel in the early evening.
When planning our Phoenix vacation, we had always intended to check out the Grand Canyon, but it was a very last minute thought that we should do a tour, because we would have absolutely no idea how to maximize our time there. We are SO glad that we booked this tour. Chris, our guide, was extremely personable and knowledgeable about the area and its history and made the tour an absolutely delight. We stopped at many vantage points for photos and Chris always made himself available to take family photos that included all members of the familyincluding the primary picture taker. The tour was extremely affordable and the pick-up and drop-off service from our hotel made it as convenient as it could possibly be. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to make the most of a day at the Grand Canyon!
Tour was great for our group who had only one day to spend at the canyon.
Wonderful experience, I would recommend for people of all ages.
This was an amazing tour! My husband and I are so happy that we booked this particular tour which included stops at a volcanic lava flow as well as an ancient native trading post. And then lunch at the Navajo reservation was an added treat. But the Grand Canyon was the best part of the trip. Our guide, Chris, was so knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend him as a tour guide. We certainly got our money's worth!
Excellent quide and very interesting tour!
JR was a fantastic guide. We really enjoyed his knowledge of the history of the Grand Canyon and the Navajo. Kept the who group entertained and involved. Would absolutely do the tour again with him.
This was one of the very best tours I have ever taken. Our tour guide Smoky was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Everything was great! I've already looked into a Viator tour for next year's vacation.
The guide and trip was very good. J.R. was a very professional guide.
This tour was amazing!
The trip was very well done. Our driver/guide/photographer was a fountain of information about the canyon and the surrounding areas.
The weather was cloudy and rainy, but that can't be controlled.
