My friend & I were a little hesitant about doing the Canyon Vista Mule ride at first & we almost cancelled out but decided a few days before our scheduled reservation that we would go by the office located at the Bright Angle Lodge & talk to the people. Glad we did! The man we spoke to showed us a... More

I absolutely loved my trip to phantom ranch and back out again, but it's not for everyone. I felt the orientation talk before we started gave a good idea what to expect and the opportunity to reconsider. Once the trip starts I think it's the first corner that is scariest. Mules are pony sized, not donkey so that puts you... More

I booked my reservation six months in advance for the 3 hour Canyon Vista Mule Tour (South Rim). I checked in, at Bright Angel Transportation Desk, one day ahead for weigh-in, water bag, purchased hat and signing of releases, etc. Instructions were very thorough (and consistently matched what I had read online and what was sent to me). I made... More

It was a cool ride... Unforgettable experience with a friendly and knowledgable tour guide. U can see the canyon on the back of the mule... It was sad because i cant secure a seat to have a package down to phantom wrench which i think will be more joyful...

My Boyhood Dream had always been to ride a mule down into the Grand Canyon, So I made my reservation last year and fulfilled my Dream this past month. I checked in at the Bright Angel Transportation Desk where all the paper work was completed and I was weighed. Yes, they do make you get on the scale. A visit... More

We took the overnight mule ride to Phantom Ranch because we figured it was the best way to experience the Grand Canyon. We booked the trip over a year in advance so there was a lot of anticipation beforehand. There was nothing disappointing about the trip though! Our wranglers, Ed and Lori, were amazing. They made sure we were having... More

We did the 1/2 day edge trail. Arrived well prepared having red the small print prior. We were transported via bus along with 15 others to the coral where we were given our instructions, split into 2 groups and allocated our mules. Led along the trail by our Wrangler who regularly berated riders for not keeping up by calling them... More
