I founded Grand-Adventures.com in April, 2005 after trying to find a good tour to the Grand Canyon. I walked the Strip, called a bunch of tour brokers, and found myself sorting through a bunch of tours that offered nothing different then price. They all had the same itinerary and seemed to waste more time getting to the Grand Canyon then they did at the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon – for me – wasn’t about a buffet, IMAX movie, or valuble prize. It was about seeing the Grand Canyon and I just couldn’t find that.
I quit my job with Flagstar Bank (which is an awesome company and every one of you should do your mortgage through them!) and started doing tours. My basic philosophy and approach to designing the tours focused on asking, “How would I show my friends the Grand Canyon if we only had one day to see it?” I decided that I’d treat everyone like my friends. I’m hoping today that what I’ve built is exactly what you are looking for and look forward to opening up this forum so that we can all talk and discuss everythign Grand Canyon.
