Grand Canyon Tours

The Grand Canyon embodies the scale and splendor of the American West, captured in dramatic vistas, dusty trails, and stories of exploration, preservation and exploitation. We’ve all seen images of the canyon in print and on-screen, but there is nothing like arriving at the edge and taking it all in the immensity, the depth, the light. Descend into the canyon depths, amble along the rim or simply relax at an outcrop you'll find your own favorite Grand Canyon vista.

Though views from both rims are equally stunning, the South Rim boasts many more official and dramatic overlooks. One of the most beautiful in its simplicity, however, is the view that whispers from the Grand Canyon Lodge's patio on the canyon's quieter north side.

Hermits Rest
1 This is a cabin that was built in 1914 and made to look like an old miners cabin. Situated on Hermits Road on the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. During the summer months, you will need to venture here on a private tour as no private vehicles are allowed. From this cabin are some of the best views on offer from the West Rim and with a cup of hot chocolate sitting on a quaint porch looking at them, is not a bad way to spend your time.
El Tovar
2 You do not need to have to stay in this hotel to appreciate its historical value. It is possible to see it while on a sightseeing tour. This hotel first opened in 1905 and in 1987 it was designated as a National Historic Landmark and many regard it as the most elegant hotel to be found west of the Mississippi. The architecture is a cross between a Swiss chalet and Norwegian villa and appealed to the elite of that era
Desert View Watchtower
3 A guided tour of the Desert View Watchtower will not disappoint you. Located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon the views from the 70-foot Watchtower are of the most impressive to be found. When you climb to the viewing point at the top of the tower, you are presented with breathtaking 360 degrees views. Inside the tower, the walls have beautiful murals and there is a great gift shop selling local Native American pottery and jewellery
Hopi House
4 An excellent private tour to take is the one to Hopi House. Designed by the architect Mary Jane Colter in 1905 it is in the Adobe Peuble Style that the traditional Hopi Indians used when building their homes. When Mary Jane was designing this house, she wanted to honour the Native Americans and their beautiful designs. The gift shop here is still selling authentic Native American arts and crafts of the finest quality.
Havasu Falls
5 Take a private tour to the Havasupai Indian Reservation and see the most beautiful 'Havasu Falls' waterfall with water gushing down the 30 meters drop in spectacular fashion. Havasupai when translated means people of the blue-green waters and the Havasupai people are intimately connected to the water and the land. You feel a genuine respect for these people and therefore are very respectful when in their vicinity.
Point Imperial
6 You cannot go to the Grand Canyon and not take a guided tour to Point Imperial. It is the highest point of the canyon on either rim as it is a little over 8800 feet high. Even on the journey to the point, you are driven through 11 miles of breathtaking scenery. It was here that was one of the first places visitors would view the canyon, and they were taken by wagon trips and trail rides before proper roads were ever built to it.
Navajo Point
7 If you are going to see the views from both South and North Rim and you have been to Point Imperial, then you have to take the guided tour to Navajo Point on the South Rim. It is a great place to view the ‘Big Bend’ area of the Colorado River. If you manage to be there in the early morning, you can see the wonderful changing patterns and colours as the sun rises. It is never boring looking out onto the Canyon.
South Kaibab Trail
8 So for the thrill seeker and adventurer, the custom guided tour of South Kaibab is the thing for you. As you are hiking down the ridgeline, you feel exhilarated, nervous, excited and in awe being so exposed to the vastness of the canyon. You will certainly see sights this way that you wouldn’t otherwise by just looking from viewpoints. There is very little shade on this trek, so suncream and lots of water are essential during the summer
The Transept Trail
9 An alternative trail to take a guided tour to and see the inner gorge of the Grand Canyon from a different perspective is the Transept Trail. This hike is not as long as other ones and it is an excellent way to avoid the crowds at the viewpoints. There are more impressive views to be seen from just off the path of the trail, which looks tricky to get to, but worth seeing and your tour guide will be there to ensure nothing happens.
Mather Point
10 When you first arrive at the Grand Canyon, Mather Point is the first 'Canyon overlooks' you encounter on the South Rim. From here you marvel at the sight of the North Rim 10 miles in the distance. You also look down onto the mile-deep abyss and see the power of the Colorado River as it snakes around below. Like every other view point, the Grand Canyon has to offer, the views are spectacular and breathtaking.

Travel Tips for Grand Canyon

Canyon National Park is huge and it would take days to explore all four rims and do some hiking inside the canyon. That being said, one day is enough for the main highlights of the Grand Canyon.

Overall, if you want the total Grand Canyon package, it's best to visit both rims. But if you have to choose between the two, I recommend that first-time visitors focus on the South Rim for the numerous overlooks and variety of experiences.

However, the North Rim does boast the Grand Canyon's highest viewpoints, at over 8,000 feet. The most popular is Bright Angel Point, which is just a short walk from the Grand Canyon Lodge. From here, you can take in sweeping views of the canyon, and see all the way to the South Rim.

1. Mather Point, South Rim
2. Redwall Bridge, North Rim
3. Hopi Point, South Rim Trail
4. Plateau Point, Bright Angel Trail
5. Shoshone Point, South Rim
6. Desert View
7. Angel’s Window, North Rim
8. Black Bridge or Silver Bridge view from the River
9. Ooh Ah Point, South Kaibab Trail
10. Toroweap/Tuweep Overlook

Long distance thru-hikers typically average between 10-15 miles a day. Hiking more than that is totally doable but not necessarily the most fun or painless. Hiking Rim to Rim in one day means hiking at least 21 miles. If the pain hasn't already kicked in by mile 15, it's very likely it will at mile 16.

It is a tough run, with a little bit of everything as obstacles: some rocky sections of trail, some exposure, two BIG hills, heat, cold, altitude (7000 feet at the south rim, 2600 feet at the bottom, 8000 feet at the north rim). You will definitely feel like you've accomplished something when you finish.
