Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. The only time I have ever really been stumped, it was by an 8 year old! It was a geology question that I had to get back to her with the answer. I love well mannered kids! I was discounted when I was younger, I love it when they are engaged. I have a DVD system in the car for the end of the day :)

Friendly: Yes.
To a reasonable extent my tours can have no physical limitation on them. Please inform me prior to booking the reservation to see what would be best to accommodate your needs. :)

Maximum travelers: 6

South Rim Day Trip with Navajo Reservation stop.


277 miles long, 18 miles across, over a mile deep, the Grand Canyon is like nowhere on earth. The expanse is overwhelming, absolutely astonishing, magnificent and timeless; any description would do it injustice. Vast empty space fills the canyon walls and echo's the sunlight off red sandstone cliff faces into small canyons, many which remain untouched by any known human. Spectacular, emotional, grandiose, inspirational, every day is uniquely memorable. We will view class five rapids from the canyon rim and stand in the presence of 3, 000 ft walls known as the Desert Palisades. We will stand in the footsteps of iconic figures like Theodore Roosevelt, Mary Colter and the Conquistadores. We will see wildlife, recent fossils and some of the oldest rocks on earth, dating back over 1. 8 billion years. We will attempt to capture the same famous vistas that Thomas Moran painted in the late 1800's, at the same spot. There will be many opportunities to walk or take photos throughout the day.

Itinerary

Our day will start in Sedona or Flagstaff where we will meet and discuss options for the day. From there we can find ourselves in deep in the mountains climbing upwards of 8, 000 feet, or, we could get our kicks on route 66. Then make it just in time for lunch at the Grand Canyons Famous El Tovar, we will have two and a half hours to explore and take photos at many points along the rim. As we make our way east we will travel across the Navajo Reservation stopping for gas and a break at a historic trading post. We will travel back home passing through the painted desert back to the pine forests and volcanic mountains that surround Flagstaff. We should make it home just in time for dinner and a spectacular sunset!

We are very flexible and can customize any part of our day!
