Grand Canyon Ultimate Tour
From US$149.00
Overview
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.

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.

At your hotel, as long as you are in one of those locations. We were In Tusayan, closest to the GC, and were picked up last. The folks whose hotels were in Flagstaff were picked up first, at their hotels.
