Learn About The Grand Canyon Guru

Grand Canyon Guru has been carefully re-designed with you, the Grand Canyon adventurer, in mind. For many people, a trip to Grand Canyon is a once in a lifetime experience. But with the canyon covering 277 miles, where do you even begin to plan your trip? How do you sift through hundreds of hotel and tour company websites to find exactly the trip that you have been dreaming of? That is where Grand Canyon Guru comes in. Whether you want to ride a mule to the bottom of the canyon, soar above the canyon in a helicopter, river raft through the most exhilarating rapids in North America, explore the waterfalls of Havasu, or just simply sip a cocktail on the canyon rim at sunset, Grand Canyon Guru offers you a sleek and central location for all Grand Canyon trip planning information.

More than 4.8 million visitors come to Grand Canyon National Park every year and most of them have very different expectations for their adventure. Some people want to hit all of the most popular highlights while others want to get away from the crowds and enjoy some solitude. There is no right way to experience the canyon, so the Grand Canyon Guru Trip Planning Tools were designed with that in mind. By answering 4 simple questions about the experience that you would like to have, the Guru will generate a unique itinerary for your Grand Canyon adventure. This tool will save you hours of work sifting through hundreds of websites, so you can quickly focus on the aspects of your adventure that you are looking forward to the most. The Guru also offers a trip cost calculator to estimate your trip cost and a free guidebook with even more trip planning information.

Grand Canyon Guru is also here to help reserve and book Grand Canyon tours, find the closest lodging and hotels, and research the most popular activities for your adventure. Once you have your trip planed out, get travel insurance or find flights and rental cars. Read reviews on the best gear, explore the travel guides, or find coupons and deals on Grand Canyon travel and vacation packages.
