There are several travel packages you can choose from when vacationing at the Grand Canyon that may include jeep tours, mule rides and helicopter trips. A typical package tour may look like this:

*A scenic flight tour from the Grand Canyon to Page/Lake Powell to see the wonders from the air

*A tour of nearby Antelope Canyon in a 4-wheel drive vehicle

When you arrive at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport, you’ll take a flight to Page, Arizona. You’ll fly over the Grand Canyon, Glen Canyon and Marble Canyon and see spectacular scenery.

When you land, you’ll be taken by 4-wheel drive vehicle to Upper Antelope Canyon, where a local guide will take you through this amazingly majestic natural wonder. This canyon has only been open to the public for a few years, so you’ll be enjoying sights that are new to most visitors. During the tour, you’ll be able to enjoy a nice light breakfast.

Heading through a two-mile long tunnel to the base of Glen Canyon Dam, you’ll board a motorized river raft that can seat 15 to 20 passengers. In the 15.5 mile long float down the river, you’ll see the results of 200 million years of erosion and landscaping by nature. This is some of the most breathtaking areas to be found along the Colorado River. See ancient petroglyphs and marvel at the canyon walls that rise a thousand feet above you. Lunch is provided on this tour.

At Lee’s Ferry, you’ll be transported through Marble Canyon. You’ll cross the Marble Canyon Bridge as you return to the South Rim where your tour started. You’ll arrive back at your vehicle just in time to see the amazing sunset over the Grand Canyon.

An educational tour of the Grand Canyon by the Grand Canyon Field Institute can be scheduled. Its main features include:

*Two full days of hiking and touring with knowledgeable guides

*Reading materials about the Canyon

*Lodging for two nights

*Breakfast for two mornings

*Box lunches for the two days

*One night’s dinner

This is an experience your family won’t forget… it will be one of those tales that are shared around the table every year when everyone reminisces about their childhoods. All children on this tour should be at least ten years old to participate.

This is just a taste of what you can expect when you travel to the magnificent Grand Canyon. No matter which tour package you choose, you will enjoy the spectacular sights of the Canyon, and learn a lot about this historical place. It will be a vacation you will all treasure for the rest of your days.
