What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon and Navajo Indian Reservation

Grand Canyon and Navajo Indian Reservation

After morning pickup from your Flagstaff hotel, travel through the gorgeous mountains surrounding Flagstaff and some of Arizona's most scenic landscapes.

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.

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.
