  • Seats have been removed from our vans to ensure safe/comfortable distance

  • Bottled water will still be provided to our guests in a cooler on the van which the guide (wearing gloves) will distribute upon request

  • Vehicles are washed and sanitized daily

During these transitional times, we know you will have questions and concerns.  Remember we are here to answer those questions and assist with easing those concerns. Here is some important information that you need to be aware of before touring:

  • Face Masks required for all guests 

  • GC National Park has approved our safety/sanitary protocols on tour with no exceptions

  • Guides will be taking guests' temperature prior to entering the tour van. Any guest with a temperature over 100 degrees will not be allowed to tour.

Great Ventures Introduces:

Grand Canyon Railroad Tour:

Get the best of all worlds with this Grand Canyon Railroad / Guided Grand Canyon tour combination.

Why drive yourself to Williams and take a round trip train ride to the Grand Canyon then drive back to your hotel when you can be picked up in Sedona or Flagstaff, get chauffeured to the train depot, enjoy a one-way train ride on the Grand Canyon Railroad... Then, instead of seeing the same scenery on a two-hour return trip by rail, get introduced to places in Grand Canyon National Park that most people miss.

After your one-way nostalgic rail experience, your guide will pick you up at the train depot in Grand Canyon Village, you will have time to explore and have lunch on your own, then resume touring the south and east side of the Grand Canyon. You will join your guide and see what all the other train-goers miss...

You will tour the east rim of Grand Canyon National Park, see many scenic overlooks, the Desert View Watchtower, The historic Cameron trading Post on the Navajo Reservation on your way back to your hotel... door-to-door service.

Long before there were Grand Canyon helicopter tours, air tours, white water rafting tours or even mule tours, there was the Grand Canyon's train. Journey back in time on the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. Click here for information on this great tour from Sedona or Flagstaff,
