But Canyon Dave wasn't satisfied...

  "Wait a minute," he said. "This is a World Wonder! Tours at the Grand Canyon require world-class certified interpretive guides. I must train them to clearly explain, for all ages, the Grand Canyon's geology, nature, and history!

  Our tours must allow our participants to understand how a river can cut a great canyon into a flat landscape--into this Kaibab Plateau. This is the living story of Grand Canyon geology.

  I will select iconic viewpoints where we will discuss the Canyon's rich human history: how and when was it discovered, and by whom. This tour must be enriching and fun, with lunch included and plenty of comfort stops!"

   Sitting near the edge of the abyss, he thought and thought about how to design such a tour. "How will I plan our walks and talks? How can I help them understand the ancient stories of the rock layers? How will they glimpse the march of time through the long ages?"

His answer: the

Ultimate Tour

Pat McD. said:  "First timers on bucket list trip! Keaton was a great guide! This was a perfect one day trip. He knew just how to keep us out of traffic and people jams. We saw all of the South Rim overlooks and heard his concise historical, archeological, and geological comments and learned a great deal! He was patient with us older and slower visitors and was very accommodating! Highly recommend this tour!"

AJ H. said:   "Fantastic Tour of the Grand Canyon. Greatly recommend! This tour was absolutely amazing and 100% worth every penny! Leo and Emmi were wonderful guides. Even our lunch was fabulous.
