The most popular Grand Canyon South Rim tour is "Meet the Canyon," a short introductory hiking tour meant for the entire family. However, they offer numerous other South Rim tours both on the rim and inside the canyon. Most of their tours involve moderate to heavy hiking, and so you must be in good shape to participate.
Taking a Field Institute Grand Canyon South Rim tour is a good way to see deeper into the natural and cultural wonders of the canyon. The tour guides are experts, and some tours even offer meals, lodging, and mule trips as part of the class.
