We were picked up at our resort by Laura, who is well versed in local flora and folklore. She gave us an entirely enjoyable tour of the canyon rim and surrounding areas.

The Grand Canyon is truly worthy of the (overused) adjective awesome and it's value is doubly enhanced by an informative tour guide. We were lucky enough to have Mike who is a botanist and faculty member of the University of Arizona and was able to explain the history, geology and ethno-botany of the area. The tour included pick up from... More
