Grand Canyon Ultimate Tour
Explore the Grand Canyon South Rim on this day trip from Flagstaff, a great choice for nature lovers and first-time visitors. With this tour, save time searching for parking or waiting at the visitor center’s long lines, and hike part of the Rim Trail. This leaves enough time to head out to Navajo country for lunch and stop at a few of your guide’s hand-picked lookout points.
What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from your Williams, Flagstaff, or Grand Canyon/Tusayan area hotel in an air-conditioned coach. After the drive to Grand Canyon National Park’s South Rim, stop at Yavapai Point for your first views of the canyon.

Skip the lines at the visitor center and the crowds trying to get into the parking lots, and walk a bit of the Rim Trail with your guide. From here, you’ll be able to get a real sense of the depth of the canyon and see its rock layers up close.

Learn about the Grand Canyon’s geologic history and keep an eye out for deer, elk, bighorn sheep, or a California condor, the most endangered bird of prey in the world. Next head out to Navajo country and order lunch off the menu at a local restaurant.

Drive back along the South Rim, stopping at a few lookout points, and then end your tour with hotel drop-off in Williams, Flagstaff, or Grand Canyon/Tusayan.

This is one of the best ways to view the Grand Canyon. Our guide- Dustin was phenomenal, friendly and outgoing. We were picked up at the hotel and dropped off there as well.

A science lesson with great views attached

My family has been on a number of tours over the years. All good. A couple great. But our tour of the Grand Canyon was on a completely different level, for reasons that have nothing to do with the scenery. Our guide, Keaton, was a...More

Too much time spent at Cameron

Our guide, Dustin, did a great job relating to the people in our group. He had kids who asked him a million times, "What is this rock?", college age girls who wanted to go off and do their own adventuring, and then a near-retired couple...More

OK, I dont even know if I have a reservation with you as I never received the confirmation email.

After 20 minutes on hold I've decided you're a hokey business that I do not wish to have ruin my vacation.

The tour runs about 7 hours. I would recommend doing it on a day when you don't need to fly out.

They pick up at all the major hotels. Just give them a call to make arrangements. They are very helpful.
