Returned to see Meteor Crater again - always awesome - and this time took the tour out onto the crater rim. Really informative and interesting. Good visit.

The people who have hijacked this amazing natural wonder should be forced to pay back every red cent they’ve ever collected. They charge an absobitant sum of money to stand on a thirty foot platform with a hundred other people. As I have stated, criminal.

This was a great place just 6 miles off of Interstate 40. Very interesting and informative about a crater that landed over 50 million years ago

Take the ride and go visit, with kids, family or alone! Nice tours - self guided or with guide. Mesmerized!
