What To Expect
This tour has it all! You will learn all about the Grand Canyon's history, geology, and more. Your day begins with complimentary pick up at your resort. Your knowledgeable guide will be narrating as we drive through this beautiful, diverse landscape. An informational video is shown giving an overview of the Northern Arizona area.
We will stop for a short break before our first stop at the Grand Canyon IMAX Theater. No visit to the Grand Canyon is complete without experiencing the 7-story giant screen presentation of "GRAND CANYON-THE HIDDEN SECRETS". This spectacular film penetrates the innermost depths of Grand Canyon, taking viewers where they could never go, showing them things they could never see, through the startling reality of the IMAX format. In only 34 minutes, viewers will discover a Grand Canyon that would take a lifetime to experience.
After the movie we head into The Grand Canyon National Park for a great lunch, before stopping at Grand Canyon Village. At Grand Canyon Village you will have free time to explore the historic buildings, visit the gift shop, or walk part of the paved South Rim trail. Then your Great West Adventure Co. guide will take you to the East Rim to a few more great lookouts. As we drive out the East exit we will drive along the Little Colorado River Gorge into the Navajo Nation. Here we will stop at the Historic Cameron Trading Post before returning to your resort. You will have the opportunity to browse the Native American artwork and shop for souvenirs. A fun, educational day!

Located on the Canyon's South Rim, it features a fine dining room with delicious entrées such as Blackened Rainbow Trout, Stuffed Pork Chops and Grilled Chicken Breast.
