Grand Canyon Custom "Dream" Tours

Let custom tailor your perfect Grand Canyon Dream Tour to all the best sites at the most optimum viewing times. Since we have been visiting and exploring the Grand Canyon for over 55 years, we have lived through a lot of it's history and have a lot of personal experiences to share. We can put together the ultimate Grand Canyon Tour to any area of the canyon, from top to bottom, North to South, or East to West. A client said: "There is really no way to place a value on a tour with a particularly superlative guide who knows and shares information that has taken a lifetime to acquire.

On a Custom Private Grand Canyon Tour, our guides can fill your time with experiences and views that will maximize your visit and free your mind from worrying about what you might have missed on your own. Other unique opportunities can include Wildlife viewing, Native American arts and crafts, mule rides, canyon over-flights, nature walks, Colorado River rafting, and backpack trips.
