Families are especially welcome on all our Canyon Dave Tours. We love kids and we play games with them as we teach them.
Some parents have doubts that their active young children will be able to sit through a tour without becoming bored or agitated.
We have found the opposite to be true. Our methods of combining learning with play are so successful that even young kids enjoy
the full day excursions and are sad when they are over.
For example, your children will learn of the four chapters of Grand Canyon geologic history and will be invited to act out each chapter, to the delight of everyone. This is always a memorable photo or video opportunity. As we walk the safe paths (that are not too close to the edge!), the kids have plenty to see and do. Their innate curiosity often inspires the most interesting questions that we get from any guest.
For our drives between viewpoints, we have wildlife pictures and children's' books on Grand Canyon topics to keep them busy and happy, as well as our own page of Grand Canyon puzzles. Our explanations of the Canyon’s animals, plants and history are given in a way that kids can easily understand, without over-simplifying, so the adults are also well-informed.
In the Navajo Reservation country, the younger ones run and play on the dunes while the adults and older kids search for the perfect specimen of petrified wood from 225 million year old logs. There is also an optional fossil hunt with a check list for kids.
Your family vacation is special and important to you, and to us. We pride ourselves in providing an immensely enjoyable day for everyone, both young and old.
