Going on a tour is the ideal way to experience the Grand Canyon National Park. That's one of the big reasons they're such a popular thing to do during a trip to Arizona or Las Vegas.

Unique Experiences With Plenty Of Options

You have plenty of options when it comes to these canyon tours. To start with, you can choose an air tour, bus tour, or water tour. What could be more fun than a chopper ride over the Canyon? Touring by raft is exciting too since you can gaze up at the rocks towering above you.

Vegas-based travelers can visit the South or the West Rim. Tours that originate in Arizona go to the South Rim. Unfortunately, there are no tours available that go between the rims. There is one catch though, the helicopters that fly out of Vegas can only go to the West Rim. If you want the South Rim but you'll be coming from Las Vegas, I recommend taking one of the plane/helicopter “combo" tours that do this.

The Grand Canyon Is Immense And Amazing

The Canyon is spectacular and truly immense, and there are plenty of things to do while you're there. Since it encompasses more than one million acres, the best way to see it is from the air. When you see it from the air, you will be shocked at its sheer size.

You can find plenty of ways to occupy yourself at the park while avoiding the tourist traps. You can't miss them because that is where most tourists flock, plus they charge high prices. Touring by helicopter, airplane, or boat is much more fun. You'll keep the crowds at arms-length distance.

Guided Tours

Most of the tours available come with an experienced guide. Your tour guide will make sure you don't encounter any safety issues. Plus, most of them have in-depth knowledge of the area, and they often point out the best spots for taking fantastic photos.

Plan Early

Planning your tour ahead of time is a good idea. Book your tour well ahead, and decide which sights you want to see. Things to see at the West Rim are Guano Point, Grand Canyon Skywalk, and Eagle Point. The South Rim has Mather Point, Yaki Point, and Grand Canyon Village.

Treat Your Family

If you're looking for a good gift for a friend or family member that enjoys nature activities, why not give them tickets for a tour of the Grand Canyon? Practically everyone dreams of visiting the Grand Canyon National Park. Even if they have already visited the park, they would probably love to go again and try a different tour.

Let's Wrap Up

There are lots of options for tours of the Grand Canyon. All these choices help you create the perfect tour filled with adventures you enjoy while keeping you away from tourist traps. Do your research and I'm sure you'll be able to find a Grand Canyon tour that will give you a great time.
