The fully qualified tour guides of Comedy on Deck Tours will exercise your quadriceps and tickle your funny bones as they lead an adventure to the Grand Canyon’s awe-inspiring west rim. Tours run Monday through Saturday and begin with a light breakfast of a danish with juice, water, or a second danish that's been puréed in a blender, after which your group will embark on a yuk-filled three-hour trek around Earth’s most spacious crack. Side ventures include a jaunt to Eagle Point for a glimpse of the famous Skywalk observation deck, as well as to Guano Point for a 360-degree vantage point that allows canyon squirrels to size you up.
