Touring the Grand Canyon

Can you tour Grand Canyon on your own?

Yes, anyone is allowed to visit any viewpoint, trail, or facility in the Grand Canyon. Some visitors plan to return but this time they are here simply to get a few initial impressions of the truly unexpected vastness. I read that one visitor from Japan "just wanted to be in the Canyon's presence."

People visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time tend to stand in awe, just gazing. But you want to know more--you want to understand. So you take a tour.

However, if this might be your only trip here, you deserve to have a guided experience with a fun and fully professional expert. You really will see things you would have missed. And if it is a Canyon Dave Tour, especially a full day Ultimate Tour, you will understand how the Grand Canyon came to be.
