Many private tour companies offer a Grand Canyon South Rim tour in a sightseeing bus or van. However, if you'd like to get a more intimate view of Grand Canyon South Rim, try a jeep tour. Jeeps hold only a few passengers, and can navigate terrain that's impossible for buses and other vehicles.
Jeep tours take you backroading in the Kaibab National Forest and right to the canyon's rim. Passengers often see native wildlife during their tour, and get a much better idea of the landscape surrounding the canyon. Tours are usually shorter too, leaving visitors more time to explore other areas on their own. Off-road touring in private vehicles is not permitted in the Grand Canyon.
