I took my 11 year old granddaughter with me on vacation this year, when she heard we were going to the Grand Canyon all she talked about was riding mules. So I booked us on the half day trip to the Supai Tunnel. When we...More

What an experience. This is a bucket list item, even if you didn't know it. You get to ride a mule, half horse half donkey, in the Grand Canyon. Need I say more? There are short one-hour trips and three-hours, too. You can choose to...More

As experienced horse riders/show jumpers, whom regularly go out competing, you may think this was boring to us. Nope!! this was amazing on all levels. The Cowboys and cowgirls leading the ride were friendly, thoughtful and informative and the experience of riding into the Canyon...More

My whole family loved our three hour tour down the canyon. We witnessed a proposal (Europeans), a crazy posing Asian (New Yorker) and a whole lot of "natural" mule behavior. (Be prepared for the mule in front of you to break wind). Wear jeans, even...More

What is the difference between the two half day mule rides on the North Rim? Trying to decide which one to do.

Our daughter is autistic (10 yrs) with a mental capacity of a 4 year old. She weighs 85 labs and wouldn't be able to hold on independently. Do you allow 2 people on a mule ride for 3 hours?

No idea for certain. But the people at the desk for reservations are very helpful and would easily be able to answer your question. It's worth a phone call, as it was a fun trip.

The guides were very accommodating. If you would like one to take a picture of you on your mule, I am sure the response would be positive.
