We could not get into the down and back trip because it was full so booked this as an alternate. We had already hiked into the canyon, so this was a different perspective along the rim. Oscar the bus driver was great. Funny guy and...More

If your not ready for the day long trip into the canyon, this is a perfect ride. From stable to return, about 3 hours, this includes the bus shuttle to the mule barn. There are two groups on ten people and each has it's own...More
