Grand Canyon Tour
With Grand Canyon UTV Adventure Tours, not only will we take you on an adventure of a lifetime, but we will travel portions of the old historic stagecoach route, entering the Grand Canyon as they once did at the original main entrance, arriving at Grandview Point, and sharing a piece of history as only we can do. Crossing the open plains you can see, for what seems to be forever, and our destination, the Grand Canyon. As we climb in elevation the open plains merge into the beautiful Kaibab Forest home to the largest Ponderosa Pine Forest on earth. We will take a short break at the Arizona Trail crossing which is just minutes from the Grand Canyon, then on to Grandview Point.
Prior to the modern highway system and even the Grand Canyon Railway, In the 1890’s guest traveling to Grand Canyon would board the stage coach out of Flagstaff to begin their 13 hour trip to what is now known as Grandview Point on the south rim of Grand Canyon. The Berrys built the first ever hotel at Grandview Point to supplement their income from mining, making them the first hotel proprietors at the Grand Canyon. From the rim looking down into the canyon you can see Horseshoe Mesa where they once mined for Copper and Gold.
Ghost Town Tour
Our Ghost Town Tour takes you to Jerome. Although Jerome is best known for its Ghostly encounters, nestled on a hillside high above it has also gained much popularity for its historic culture, shops, magnificent views of the valley below, Red Rocks of Sedona, and the beautiful views of the San Francisco Peaks of Flagstaff that reach 12,636 feet in elevation and is the highest point in the state of Arizona.
The Jerome Hotel originally opened in 1927 and served as an Insane Asylum until 1950. Nearly 9,000 people died in the Jerome Grand Hotel during its previous life as United Verde Hospital. There must be some residual spirit energy left over from all those souls. Ghostly figures, sounds, unexplained orbs of light and other paranormal activity permeate the halls of this ghostly Hotel making it one of the most haunted places in Arizona.

What Others Are Saying About Grandview Point...
Very interesting viewpoint
“This is one of the ‘must see’ stops as you head east along the south rim. Very interesting – very educational – great view of the canyon.”
“Grandview Point is one among many great views of the Grand Canyon. Can’t miss this one if you’re in the park.”
“You’d think, after you’ve seen a few overlooks, the Grand Canyon would start looking the same. NOPE. Always something new, the light and shadow offers extra highlights and changes the landscape moment to moment, and every view is worth taking the time to visit. This one’s a BIG must.”
True to it’s name, a Grand View
“All of the viewpoints in Grand Canyon NP are amazing, but this is one of the best. A must see when you are in this NP.”
One of our favorite viewpoints
“I would have to say that this was one of our favorite places on our drive along the south rim. A lot of photo ops and a place that just made you want to sit and take it all in. We were not in a hurry to leave”
A different way to see the Grand Canyon
“Grandview Point view is almost like looking down the length of the canyon instead of across it. It is an amazing view.”
“This was one of our favorite viewpoints, and we really enjoyed the views from here and the pictures we got from this point. Well worth a stop!”
