    Grand Canyon South Rim
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Your tour starts from your Williams, Flagstaff, or Grand Canyon Village area hotels with morning pickup by a knowledgeable, informative local guide. Upon meeting your group, you will be regaled with stories of the geology and natural history explanations of how the Grand Canyon came to be. Upon entering the park, you will drive to Yavapai Point, your first glimpse of the Canyon. You will walk a bit of the Rim Trail as you search for wild life such as deer, elk, and maybe even California Condors! At our next viewpoint, you will enjoy a full geology lesson about the rocks and surrounding area. After exploring the south rim, you will head out to Navajo land for an included lunch where you will select from American, and even Native American options for your meal. Relax and converse with your host and with locals as you learn more about the area from those who know it best. After a little more exploration of your guide’s hand-picked, personal locations, you will be driven back to your hotel to rest, relax, and enjoy the amazing photos you collected throughout the day.
