Spend 2 days exploring the depths of the canyon
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 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, I have an intimate and extensive knowledge of the area. Because the overnight adventure is a day longer than the escape, we will have the time to explore more of the canyon and believe me, there is plenty to discover. So if you have the time it's totally worth it!
Our trip begins at 6:30 in the morning at our mutually agreed upon pick-up location. We will arrive in the
Grand Canyon area by 11:00 am and have lunch followed by an afternoon of sightseeing, hiking or other activities. That evening we check into our hotel and have dinner.
After a good nights sleep, we will have breakfast and have a full morning of mutually agreed upon activities. After lunch we will have until 2 pm to visit any remaining must-see locations or do last minute shopping. We will depart around 2 pm and be back in Phoenix approximately 5 pm.
Special gear recommendations: I strongly suggest wearing a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Good hiking shoes and a day pack for water and lunch is also necessary.
