During a Grand Canyon day tour, you’ll travel along the South Rim of the canyon in an air-conditioned vehicle with reclining seats. All the while, guides expound on the canyon’s geology, people, and wildlife. Throughout the tour, you’ll take a few short walks to outlooks and pop into historic buildings. You'll also have plenty of time to browse the gift shop to find a t-shirt for your favorite mailman. Bright Angel Café provides lunch.
The shuttle will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel or B&B. If you’re not staying at Flagstaff, meet at the Wal-Mart in town (located at 2750 S Woodlands Village Blvd). You’ll be picked up at 7:30 a.m. and dropped back off by 5 p.m.
Grand Canyon Adventures
At the age of six, when most kids are learning how to tie their shoelaces, Grand Canyon Adventures owner and guide Andrew Moore went on his first backpacking trip with his family to the Grand Canyon. Years later, Moore is still exploring the scenic gorge. But nowadays, he shares his expertise with the tour groups on Grand Canyon Adventures' day trips, hikes, and bike tours. And it’s still a family affair. Andrew’s nature-loving dad, Bob Moore, drives the air-conditioned vehicle and shares his vast knowledge about the Grand Canyon on guided excursions.
There are hiking expeditions to suit all skill levels. One is the Grand View Trail to Coconino Saddle, a 2.5-mile trek that runs along a 100-year-old former mining trail and climbs 1,200 feet in elevation. Or, opt for a bike tour along the historic Hermits Rest Road, a former pioneer trail that winds along the canyon rim—keep an eye out for Colorado River rapids below or a napping Wile E. Coyote.
