“The South Rim is my favorite part of the Grand Canyon. It was possible to walk a little bit away from the main lodge and really just soak up how enormous the canyon is, and how small I felt, standing on the edge of it. I would definitely recommend taking a small-group tour. Having a guide that can actually answer your questions and interact with the whole group really makes a trip like this special and unique.”

Approximately 3 hours at deepest & widest part of the Grand Canyon
After departing Las Vegas, guests will travel through the Mojave Desert and over the Colorado River on their way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Mojave Desert is characterized by its signature plant, the Joshua Tree, and plays host to arguably to hottest place on Earth. To beat the heat, we will be traveling over the mighty Colorado River on the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and pass by Route 66, the “Main Street of America”.Before arriving to the Widest and Deepest part of the Grand Canyon National Park, the tour will stop in Historic Williams Arizona.
