The Grand Canyon would be a terrific choice to visit during your next vacation. It is one of the top vacation spots in the United States and is truly something you will remember forever.

Guided Grand Canyon tours are the best way to explore this magnificent National Park. It's easy to find a tour that you'll love as your choices include plane flights, bus rides, rafting trips and helicopter tours.

You should probably read up on the Grand Canyon before taking your trip. Your tour will be more exciting if you have some knowledge about the region. Besides familiarizing yourself with the area's sights and experiences, learning about the climate will help you choose the right clothes for the weather.

To start with, you need to figure out which rim you want to visit. The South Rim is probably the best choice if you are starting out from central Arizona. If you leave from Vegas, you can go to the South Rim or the West Rim. Unfortunately, there aren't any direct flights between those rims.

Grand Canyon West (the West Rim's other name) is the only place in the Park where choppers are permitted to fly below the rim and land on the canyon floor. Taking a chopper to the canyon floor is an option you can add on to a bus tour, plane tour, or helicopter tour. You should opt for this thrilling adventure if you can.

You can add on fun rafting trips at either rim. South Rim rafting tours start at Glen Canyon Dam, with transportation to the dam available by plane or bus. The plane option is a good choice since you will get to see some spectacular scenic views, plus you can take a Jeep ride through the impressive Antelope Canyon. If you are in Vegas and plan to take a tour to the West Rim, you can transfer to a chopper that will take you to the floor of the canyon so you can begin your rafting tour down the Colorado River. Rafting tours are seasonal and only offered between March and November, so keep that in mind when you're making your travel plans.

All-inclusive tours of the Grand Canyon are probably the most ideal way to go. That way, you won't have to plan all the individual details of your tour since the operator takes care of it for you. Things included in a package are fees and taxes, lunch, tour guide services, and pickup and drop off at your hotel. If a company tries to charge extra for any of those services, you should do more shopping around since they should be included free.

Avoid booking your Grand Canyon tour at the last minute, and especially not at the destination. There are good reasons not to do those things. Since seats are limited on the tours, if you book yours at the last minute, you will pay more money for it. Also, you will pay more if you buy tickets from a kiosk on the Strip or if you buy them through your hotel. In addition, you will have fewer options when it comes to departure times and tours.

So, book your Grand Canyon tour as far in advance as you can, and do it on the website of the tour operator you choose. In addition to ensuring that your purchase transaction is safe and secure, these companies offer terrific Internet discounts on their most popular tours. The amount you save could be as much as 35% when you book online. There are some terrific deals out there, and the savings really add up when you're buying tickets for several people.
