What you'll do

This is not the Grand Canyon tour that most people will get to experience.

Because I dont live to fill seats...
I live to help share the deep history and passion that I, and so many others have for this natural wonder of the world.

This tour is about facilitating lifelong memories though meaningful connections to this amazing and beautiful place called Grand Canyon.

If you want to avoid the standard, cookie-cutter Grand Canyon tours and get away from the crowds, this is the tour for you.

We will begin with a ~2 mile out and back hike, to a relatively remote and secluded viewpoint that allows true connection to Grand Canyon. Here we will enjoy lunch with one of the greatest views available to humankind, as well as talk about the rich and deep cultural and geologic history of the Colorado Plateau and Grand Canyon.

For the second half our of tour, we will make our way about a mile down the S. Kaibab Trail to "Ooh-Ahh" Point, for yet another breathtaking view.

You will also get free, professional photos and portrait to commemorate your tour!

*PLEASE NOTE*
-Please book a private instance for the number in your party; ex. if you are a party of 4, book for 4 people.
-This tour has a 2-seat minimum, solo travelers need to book for 2.
-Transportation/entry/food not provided.
-Gratuities are never expected but are always accepted and deeply appreciated.
-Covid aware.

What a great experience. We only had one day to explore the Grand Canyon and booking the guided trip with Evan couldn’t have gone any better. We learned a ton about the Grand Canyon. Everything from the theories of formation to history of the park and tons of other things. He’s a great conversationalist and has led a very interesting life. It was an all around awesome day! Thanks Evan!!

What a fabulous way to experience the Grand Canyon. Evan is a fantastic guide, leader, and teacher. He is clearly passionate about this place and makes it easy for others to see why. A special day indeed.

We wanted a unique experience and Evan's guided tour exceeded our expectations.  Millions of folks visit each year, some will get out of their cars to look, but how many actually get to learn its history, or take the time to just sit and "take it all in."  Evan is so knowledgeable on the geologic history of the canyon and the first viewpoint he took us to was not only breathtaking, but secluded as well.  We were able to focus on what he was teaching us; I remember learning about the canyon in high school but never actually appreciated it until now.  The "Ooh-ahh" point Evan took us to was amazing, and worth the walk down.  I don't want to give anything else away, as I want YOU all to experience it yourselves!  We were so thankful Evan took pictures and that he's just an all around awesome guy, very down to earth, with a sense of humor and so many interests we enjoyed learning about!  We would never, ever get an experience like this here in New England.  Thank you again Evan, for such a wonderful experience that we'll never forget!

We were blown away by Evan’s knowledge of the ecosystem and history. He included many special touches to the tour such as using various senses to connect with nature and the beauty and spirit of the area. This is a MUST DO if you’re looking for a personalized and cozy experience instead of a quick pull over the car and wait in line to get one token picture of the Grand Canyon. We also had our two children (ages 8 and 6) with and they enjoyed the tour as well. A few pointers! The weather varies greatly in this area. Trust and read all of Evan’s tips before you arrive to stay comfortable. Without his guidance we wouldn’t have been adequately dressed.

Evan has tons of knowledge about the Grand Canyon and his story telling is his best attribute. He is personable and committed to informing, educating and entertaining. Evan was quick to answer questions during planning and gave us options to cater our experience directly to what we wanted to do. There were 5 of us on the experience: my husband, our 2 sons (19 & 16) & our nephew (20). Evan interacted with each of us as we hiked. He stopped every so often to share a story which always taught us something about the ecosystem, especially the about the trees and the rocks. He knows a lot about the rock formations and the history of the land and shares our desire to preserve and protect. We had fun - we could "feel" the canyon - we saw views that we will never ever forget. We'd love to plan a longer trip with Evan next time!
