Experience, explore and be awestruck by this most amazing of the 7 natural wonders of the world!
No trip to Phoenix and the southwest is complete without adventuring north to the Grand Canyon--the most amazing of the 7 natural wonders of the world!
Our trip begins at our designated meeting place and we travel north for approximately 4 hours through the Sonoran Desert and up onto the Colorado Plateau. Once we arrive at the south rim at an elevation of approximately 6, 500 feet, we will begin our exploration of this majestic landscape.
As this is a private tour, your trip will be tailored to your desired level of activity as well as your primary interests. Photos from rim view points, hiking along the rim, shopping and exploring Grand Canyon village, and even hiking into the canyon are all options.
Having led tours to the Grand Canyon for over 10 years and traversed the canyon numerous times, I have an intimate and extensive knowledge of the area. Whether you are a first time visitor or you want to return and see more remote parts of the Canyon, this tour is for you!
I will pick you up at your hotel at 6:00 in the morning. We will drive up to the Grand Canyon to the trail. We will hike thru the morning before stopping for lunch on the trail at a scenic spot. We will then continue until our hike is complete, tour Grand Canyon village as time permits and then we will return to Phoenix.
Special gear recommendations: I strongly suggest wearing a hat, sun glasses and sun screen. Good hiking shoes and a day pack for water and lunch is also necessary.

Will is awesome! We had a private spot for sunrise at Grand Canyon and there was no one for miles. Sedona was crowded, so Will was able to immediately find the "road less traveled" for a beautiful hike among the red rocks. Jerome was a blast, don't miss the Jerome Grand Hotel! Will took care of everythnig, lots of snacks, cold drinks, even extra blankets for a 26 degree sunrise. Also full of information and great company. Thanks Will!
