(Editor’s Note – This original post from April 2012 has been updated to reflect current Grand Canyon vacation details.)
Take a Grand Canyon Tour and travel fully guided to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Grand Canyon National Park, just north of Phoenix, Arizona, is also a World Heritage Site and attracts nearly five million tourists each year.
In order to accommodate all the annual tourists, the Grand Canyon area is well developed with excellent hotels and accommodations for anyone wishing to enjoy a Grand Canyon tour on the South Rim or the North Rim.
It’s relatively easy to find a good Grand Canyon tour company to explore the Canyon with.
Whether you are looking for a helicopter tour, a river rafting tour or a chance to explore many of the other great activities within the Canyon area (such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk or the Grand Canyon Railway), your Grand Canyon National Park tour will be one that leaves a lasting impression.
Grand Canyon Travel Itinerary
Many tourists begin their Grand Canyon tour from Phoenix Arizona, which offers the best airport for easy access to Grand Canyon National Park. Caravan Tours begins all of their Grand Canyon tours from Phoenix, the largest city in Arizona. Upon landing at the Sky Harbor Airport, Caravan Tours’ guests stay one night in Phoenix before heading north to visit an artists’ colony in Sedona and then on to the Grand Canyon.
Two nights of the Grand Canyon tour are spent right at the Grand Canyon with accommodations at one of four Grand Canyon Park Lodges located inside Grand Canyon National Park near the South Rim. Apart from a short orientation session, tourists are at leisure to choose the Grand Canyon activities that interest them, such as hiking Grand Canyon rim trails, visiting historic buildings, or checking out the Lookout Studio.
After departing the Grand Canyon, Caravan tourists stay at Lake Powell Resort where they enjoy a boat cruise and take a jeep tour of Monument Valley. This Bryce, Zion and Grand Canyon tour also includes one day at Bryce Canyon and one day at Zion Park, which nicely rounds out the tour experience before heading past the Grand Canyon west rim to Las Vegas, Nevada where the tour officially ends.
The Grand Canyon & Tourism
The 227-mile long gorge that creates the Grand Canyon naturally attracts tourists from around the world. As one of the most complete geological cross sections visible on our planet there are a number of archaeological sites that date back hundreds of millions of years.
The Grand Canyon National Park tour allows visitors to explore some of the over 1.2 million acres that is home to over 1,500 species of plants and animals including cougars, rattlesnakes and Gila monsters. The enduring force behind sustaining the wildlife community, and is responsible for carving the Canyon over millions of years, is the mighty Colorado River.
The Grand Canyon is also in close proximity to three other natural tourist destinations, all included along Caravan’s Grand Canyon Tour bus route:
