Is the Mule Ride the Way to Go?

Grand Canyon Mule Rides... Or How to Get to the Bottom of the Grand Canyon!

What you’ll learn in this video:

  • Why Grand Canyon mule rides are so awesome!
  • Why Grand Canyon mule rides are so hard to get reservations for
  • Why you want to take a Grand Canyon mule ride in the first place
  • Why you might not be able to take a Grand Canyon mule ride – or might not want to – even if there is space available
  • How you can still get to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and have a lot more fun!

Where to find what YOU want to know:  
:55 – Supply and Demand (or lack of the former and too much of the latter): The number of mules permitted to enter the Grand Canyon each day is so limited that one must make reservations 12-13 months in advance in order to take part!

1:34 – Measuring up (and looking down): All Grand Canyon mule riders must conform to a certain set of physical criteria, no exceptions!  Too big? You won’t ride.  Too small?  Ditto.  Got issues with heights, bad knees, or a bad back?  They might let you ride but you probably wouldn’t want to; who wants to pay good money to end up in excruciating pain or scared silly?

1:45 – Let’s get to the bottom of this: The real reason why you want to go on the Grand Canyon Mule Ride … and how you can still get your wish (even if you don’t get the mule ride)

2:07 – Take me to the river: Learn how the Colorado River of the Grand Canyon can be seen and enjoyed by people from age 5 to 105, of virtually all physical fitness levels.

4:35 – For our “friends in low places:” Afraid of heights?  Even if you’re not – the Inner Canyon Jeep Tour will get you to the bottom of the Canyon AND keep you on solid ground.

6.40 – Viva Las Vegas!  In the city where all things are possible, getting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon is a piece of cake, whether you have a couple hours or a whole day to spare.
