Family Tours

All Canyon Dave's Tours Are Family Tours

Children Present Grand Canyon Geology to Everyone

Families are especially welcome on all our Canyon Dave Tours. We love older kids and we play games with them as we teach them. Some parents have doubts that their active children will be able to enjoy a tour without becoming bored or agitated. We have found the opposite to be true. For infants and toddlers, consider our private tours--just your own family.

Our methods of combining learning with play are so successful! Young kids 4-12 enjoy the Full Day Tour and are sad when it is over. (But you will be happy!)

For example, at Grand Canyon 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. A child's innate curiosity often inspires the most interesting questions.

Children on a Mound

For our drives between viewpoints, we have wildlife pictures and childrens' books on interesting topics to keep them busy and happy. Our explanations of animals, plants and history are given in a way that kids can easily understand, without over-simplifying, so the adults are also well-informed.

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.

Tours with Infants and Toddlers

The public tours are best for 5 to 12-year-olds (use your judgement). But on our special Private Tours, all infants, toddlers, and big kids are welcome with you! You will want to bring your own car seats. We will be able to accommodate any and all special stops for taking care of the little ones. It feels so great for the parents to enjoy the marvelous Grand Canyon even with infants on our Private Tours.
