Touring The Grand Canyon While On Vacation
We know you have always wanted to take a tour of the Grand Canyon. You are not alone in that desire, and every year millions of people make the trek to Page, Arizona to explore one of the most iconic national parks on earth. The Grand Canyon is considered to be one of the most beautiful and unique spaces on the face of the earth, and because of this notoriety you will probably find more than a few people exploring the same place that you are, taking pictures and hiking. There are different times of year that will have more or less people than others, but no matter what you will probably not be alone in the park. The best way to make the most of your Grand Canyon experience is to plan ahead, and research the options that you have for fun when you get there. The further in advance you can plan your activities for the day in the park, the more fun you will have because you are not simply following crowds in order to do what they do. The Grand Canyon has many hiking trails, helicopter tours, donkey rides, guided walks and photo areas, and if you are not familiar with the area then you might miss some great stuff unless you plan ahead. You also may be surprised at the driving distance from your starting city. If you are beginning in Las Vegas, it is about 4.5 hours drive to the park, all through the desert. Desert driving is not like driving in populated areas, and gets very boring quickly because the scenery looks pretty much the same the whole way. If you are not familiar with driving in these conditions, it may be a good idea to let the driving up to someone like us. In addition to that benefit, we will also be able to plan out the activities that you will enjoy for you. We are familiar with the Grand Canyon and know where to find the best spots to take pictures and hike, the ones with the smallest crowds and the best views. You won’t have to worry about missing anything because we are experts and will be guiding you along the way.
One thing that you need to pay attention to if you have not decided to plan your trip in advance is simply answering the ads that you see for Grand Canyon tours around town or in the airport. While these tours are going to the Grand Canyon technically, they are not going to the national park areas of the Grand Canyon. Instead, these tour groups so to the “West Rim” which is a more tourist trap area of the canyon that is about 2 hours from downtown. There is a manmade bridge there that serves as the main attraction. While there is certainly nothing wrong with any area of the Grand Canyon, most people prefer to tour the areas that they have seen in books and magazines. Thats why our Grand Canyon tours go to the actual national park area,
