North Rim of the Grand Canyon
August 24, 2020 thru August 27, 2020
Less visited and less developed than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the North Rim is a spectacular treat! This tour finds us heading to northern Arizona where we will be wrapped in cool temperatures and green mountain vistas. Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and a mile deep. The North Rim overwhelms our senses through its immense size, remote location and supreme beauty.

Today we depart Tucson and travel to Sedona – surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests, and noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. We make a stop for an independent lunch and then continue up scenic Oak Creek Canyon into Flagstaff, where we tour the Lowell Observatory, established in 1894, placing it among the oldest observatories in the United States, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965. We check into the Little America Resort/Hotel and have a delicious get-acquainted dinner at the hotel.
This morning we climb higher onto the Kaibab Plateau until we reach the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. After lunch at the Jacob Lake Lodge, we check into our very comfortable cabins at the Grand Canyon Lodge for a 2-night stay and relax for the evening.
Today we board our motorcoach and take a narrated tour of this pristine area! Overlooks allow us to peer deep into this natural wonder and far beyond the San Francisco Peaks. The afternoon is free so that you can hike the trails and relax under the pines. This evening we will have a wonderful dinner in the Lodge dining room.
This morning we depart the North Rim and after a lunch stop at Cameron Trading Post, head back to Tucson with many great memories of this area in Northern Arizona. Join us!

ACTIVITY LEVEL 3 MODERATE
Expectations: Expect a moderate amount of walking. There will be time to rest on the coach and between attractions. To enjoy this tour, you should be prepared to walk slightly longer distances, climb stairs and tolerate periods of standing, for example on city walks, sightseeing stops or ship excursions. The daily pace and timing can fluctuate significantly between longer and shorter travel days, with additional activities possibly occurring in the early morning or evening. There may be some changes in altitude or temperatures.
Appropriate for: Most travelers beginning with those who are moderately fit, lead semi-active lives, are comfortable participating in long days of activities and expect some physical exertion.
For your reference, we send to you a detailed itinerary approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the scheduled tour departure. This has day-by-day times and events, hotel information where you can be reached in case of an emergency, and airline information.
The times listed on the itinerary are all approximate. We cannot be held responsible for schedule changes due to unforeseen circumstances with the weather, transportation agents, highway conditions, hotels or contracting agents.
It is always a good idea to carry on your person a list of medications that you are taking and an emergency contact phone number while you are traveling. And we suggest making a copy of the itinerary and provide it to a friend or family member.
GRATUITIES/ITEMS INCLUDED IN PRICE
The traditional end-of-tour gratuity to your tour director is not included. If you feel your Tour Director helped you enjoy your tour, we suggest you enclose a gratuity in an envelope and present it individually at the end of the tour. Simply as a guideline, one may consider a per person, per day gratuity of $8.00 per tour guide as an average to be modified by one’s own personal experience. All hotel porterage and airport skycap (when available) fees are included. We also include the gratuities for the coach/livery drivers. Maid tips are not included.
For your convenience, we have a (round-tour) door-to-door pickup service with each multi-day tour. (This service is not available to all clients depending on your location.) Approximately 2 to 3 days prior to the departure date you will receive a call from our office and we will tell you your assigned pickup time. (These times can vary up to 15 minutes depending on traffic.)
If you would like to request special accommodations at the hotel(s) where we are lodging, please call us as soon as possible and we will forward these requests for you. The phone numbers of the hotel(s) where we are staying are listed on the itinerary.
Many hotels around the country have instituted a "reconditioning fee" of $300 or more that is levied upon a guest that smokes in a non-smoking room. If this occurs during our tour you will be responsible for paying this fee to the hotel prior to check-out.
We pay close attention to your requests but please realize that these are merely requests and cannot be guaranteed.
