inding a cheap Grand Canyon tour is not as hard as it sounds. Grand Canyon Tour Operators want your business and know that there is a lot of competition when it comes to Grand Canyon tours. But finding the cheapest Grand Canyon tour is not always the smartest move because it may be in an old bus or helicopter, not include hotel pick-up and drop-off, or could include hidden fees when booking. That is not the idea behind a cheap Grand Canyon tour. You want to enjoy all the beauty the Grand Canyon has to offer and enjoy it in luxury.
Below are our top 5 tips for saving money on your next Grand Canyon tour.
1. Attempt to visit the Grand Canyon during non-peak tourist times. Summer time is the busiest time of year for the Grand Canyon so tour operators offer better prices during non-peak seasons
2.Compare rates at different Grand Canyon tour operator websites and check for current Grand Canyon promo codes. Almost all major Grand Canyon tour operators offer a wide variety of promo codes and discounts that can save you upwards into the hundreds of dollars. The key to a cheap Grand Canyon visit is information and research.
3. Booking in advance and online can save you money on your Grand Canyon tour. Tour operators usually offer their best deals online and in advance. Booking the day before or day of through the telephone will cost your premium price.
4. If you are already away from home and on your vacation look for coupon books or Grand Canyon coupons. Most major tour companies provide coupons that can be printed off the Internet or torn out of local coupon books provided by your hotel.
5. Don’t settle for the cheapest Grand Canyon tour package just because it is the cheapest. I cannot stress this enough because traveling in a 30 year old non air-conditioned bus for hours to the Grand Canyon can ruin your memorable experience. Check the details of the tours and search the Internet for reviews from people who have taken the tour before you. Spending an extra $20 could be the difference between a bad Grand Canyon experience and a Great Grand Canyon experience.
