What you'll do

Experience Grand Canyon the way it was meant to be experienced, not on a bus or van with a dozen+ tourists who just want to check something off a list. Forget the script-reading, cookie cutter operations who only care about putting butts in seats that inundate this amazing place and come journey and learn with us in a private and secluded setting!

Our tour will begin with a ~2 mile hike out to a relatively remote and secluded viewpoint that allows true connection to the Grand Canyon. Here we will enjoy lunch with one of the greatest views available to mankind, talk about conservation challenges and solutions in the Grand Canyon, and learn about the rich cultural and geologic history of the Colorado Plateau. For the second half our of tour we will hike about a mile down the famous Bright Angel Trail to get in Grand Canyon and see a different perspective.


**PLEASE NOTE*
I DO NOT PROVIDE LUNCH, ENTRANCE PASS OR TRANSPORTATION TO PARK, COST IS $35/vehicle for 7 day access.

***Solo travelers please book for 2-seats as that is the minimum for this private tour to depart***

This is such a great guide. So informative and you can choose the option to "dip your toes" in the Grand Canyon and what it has to offer, or do a full blown day. Evan and his team are very accommodating and so knowledgeable of the area and history. Our first experience in the area, and Tyrell made it great.

This experience was a lot of bang for our buck. Evan delivered so much value in such a short period of time. The spot he chose for lunch was exclusive and breathtaking. He's extremely knowledgable about both the ecosystem and the history of the area. A day with this guy is highly recommended.

Evan made this trip special and memorable. He is a Forestry major and conservationist, so I learned so much about the Grand Canyon's history, people and nature. He honors the majestic surroundings, and I left with a greater appreciation and respect for all the nature is and gives. I highly recommend this tour.

This trip was a great experience for us. The information Evan provided was definitely unique and his background in Forest management and conservation makes him a genuine expert. The tour itself was well curated allowing us very private yet breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon. I highly recommend it to all fellow conservationists, lovers of the national park system and fans of the Civilian Conservation Corps mission.
