We Have Arrived at the Grand Canyon!

Grand Canyon Tour Company guide at Yavapai Point We will whisk you to the breathtaking South Rim. In a few minutes you will be walking into the pine-forested ledges of our first outdoor vista, Yavapai Point.

 For many, this is a first view of Grand Canyon, so we allow time to just take it all in. You will carry our provided binoculars to pick out distant sights: the Colorado River, Phantom Ranch, or the mule-riders on Bright Angel Trail.

Grand Canyon Full Day Tours Here at the South Rim, we acknowledge the depth of the Canyon and the even greater depth of geologic time. The rock layers formed one by one with great pauses called unconformities between each layer. Then, much later, raindrop by raindrop, grain by grain, and landslide by landslide, the Grand Canyon grew. Now it is 277 miles long and averages 8 miles wide, all in Arizona.

 We will walk a bit of the level Rim Trail, focusing now on the diverse plant life of the area and any wild animals or birds we may encounter--you will take home colorful hand-out Info-Sheets.

A Mule Deer greets one of our day tours Guided tour guests see a California Condor It is not uncommon to see deer, elk, bighorn sheep, or a California Condor soaring above the abyss with the ubiquitous ravens. The condor has the widest wingspan (9.5 feet) of any bird in North America.

“Just as thrilled with this experience as with our Sedona Tour with Canyon Dave Tours. Great information, well presented, good pace, everything an A++ experience. Don't change a thing!"
-Judi and Arthur E.

Lunch is provided on our full day tours Picnic lunch on full day tour Time for lunch already! You will order your picnic from the menu or in a restaurant (included in tour price). We will include nice gift stores if you are in the mood to shop.

Let's Rim-hop to Grandview, Moran, and Lipan Points!

Day tours include Grandview Point   Depending on time and traffic, we will stop at all of these. At the South Rim you will sit comfortably on folding chairs in view of the Canyon. Your guide will lead a memorable session on Grand Canyon rocks and their ages. You will pass around larger rock specimens and place smaller ones on your geology handout.

Here also, we will piece together the four eras of Grand Canyon's geologic history. We will imagine the rock layers that existed at the end of each chapter. Your guide will paint a verbal picture of each long-lost landscape. In testimonials, this stop rates as the favorite on the whole tour.

Grand Canyon Evening Shasows

We return along the Grand Canyon's South Rim in time for final splendid viewpoints. By now, the magic of late afternoon shadows transforms the Canyon into a distant Shangri-La. It is also the best time for final photos and the most likely time for wildlife.
