As one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” the Grand Canyon is a must-see destination. The mile-deep canyon formed millions of years ago as the Colorado River cut a deep channel through layers of hard rock, exposing beautifully ribboned layers of the Earth’s crust. The canyon measures in at 270 miles long and stretches across northern Arizona. There is truly nothing quite like it, which is why people of all ages from around the world come to witness this breathtaking Southwest landmark.
The Grand Canyon is our most popular destination choice with its picturesque views and awe-inspiring features. Our professional tour guides provide expert narration, pointing out the amazing sites throughout the entire tour and offering insight on this historic natural wonder.

The Grand Canyon is a stunning display of natural beauty, no matter what time of year you visit. However, months with mild temperatures (March-May and September-November) can be the ideal time to explore everything the Grand Canyon has to offer. And even though summer months can be hot, they do provide more hours of daylight to take in the amazing sights or enjoy fun outdoor activities.
Depending on what part of the Grand Canyon you happen to be visiting, there are a number of hotels, lodges, and campsites where you can stay. At the South Rim, you can choose from the El Tovar Hotel, Bright Angel Lodge, Maswik Lodge, and more. At the West Rim, the Hualapai Lodge is the most popular place to stay. Another excellent option is to stay in Las Vegas to get the best of both worlds! Gray Line arranges all your transportation needs from your Las Vegas hotel to the Grand Canyon and back, included in your tour package.
