I've been to the Grand Canyon many times before, but I never realized how much I missed.  Hiring a hiking guide was the right way to go.

Grand Canyon Explorer Hike 

$219 per adult (Children 8 to 15 $179)

Grand Canyon Hiking Guide You'll enjoy outstanding vistas on a "mild" Grand Canyon hike.  This is the perfect hike for first time Grand Canyon visitors.  The trail is wide, but the views are unparalleled. You'll experience the vastness of Grand Canyon with relative ease.  This is a GREAT hike for the Entire Family.  Difficulty Rating:  Mild to Moderate

Secret Desert Oasis Hike 

$219 per adult (Children 12 to 15 $179)

Explore little known springs hidden in the depths of the Grand Canyon.  Abundant shade, maidenhair fern, crimson monkey flower and wild grapes surround these rare water sources.  Over 80% of the canyon's biodiversity surrounds these springs.  The trail drops steeply at first, but levels out nicely for the second half of the hike.  Difficulty Rating:  Moderate

Sky Island Extreme

$219 per person

Visit one of Grand Canyon's largest sky islands (a mile long mesa surrounded by towering temples and buttes).  Explore turn of the century mining operations where the rails and mining equipment still litter the landscape.  Then you'll descend into surreal limestone caverns with giant stalactites, stalagmites and other colorful cave formations.  You won't believe you're really in Grand Canyon!  Difficulty rating:  Difficult
