If you're seeking wonderful vacation plans, look no further than Grand Canyon tours. The Grand Canyon is unparalleled in the world for the incredible views it offers visitors to the rim. Although it is not the deepest canyon in the world, its amazing size, intricate rock formations, and colorful landscapes make it one of the world's greatest natural wonders.

The Grand Canyon was first given federal protection in 1893 as a Forest Reserve and eventually a National Monument. It did not receive recognition as a National Park until 1919. 44,173 people visited Grand Canyon National Park that year, compared to the current annual visitation of about five million visitors. Such crowds dictate that the National Parks Service must limit the number of backpackers within the Canyon.

Grand Canyon tours are an ideal way to enrich your experience at the Canyon. Choose a knowledgeable guide and you will learn a lot about the geology and erosion that created the chasm. No other place allows you to hike over billions of years of rock formations as you explore the gorgeous terrain.

Families will really appreciate guidance through the trails around the Canyon rim and into the Canyon itself. Consider booking a tour for several days, so that you can hike into the Canyon with all necessary permits and equipment. Some Grand Canyon tours even offer mountain biking and river rafting in addition to hiking.
