Your tour will take you deep into limited access areas of the Grand Canyon, including exclusive Grand Canyon National Park viewpoints that offer truly unique and exciting vantage points. At 3,000 feet (880 m) above the Colorado River, the sheer drop from the Rim at this part of the Canyon offers spectacular views.
