Why book a guided hiking tour to the Grand Canyon?


Grand Canyon National Park is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. While many people visit the Grand Canyon each year, only a small percentage venture below the rim. Navigating Bright Angel or Kaibab trail can be challenging if you aren’t an experienced hiker used to the desert environment. We arrange reservations with our partners over a year in advance to secure accommodations as close to or inside the National Park as possible. We plan our visits to avoid crowds and maximize time below the rim. Our professionally trained guides take care of the details and make sure you are prepared to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.
