(19:33:21) Visitor – Yes, Hi...I am planing a tour with my mom and my son to the Grand Canyon. I am looking at your best deals.
(19:33:56) Visitor – I am planning in spending the night in Williams, Arizona and go to the canyon the next morning.
(19:33:57) Alley – Are you looking for hotels, tours, both?
(19:34:19) Visitor – Yeah, I heard Williams is cheaper.
(19:34:20) Alley – Williams has reasonably priced hotels. Then you can drive yourself to the park if you wish.
(19:34:42) Alley – Cost is $25 to enter the park, the Entrance Fee is good for 1 week’s time.
(19:35:10) Visitor – How long of a drive is it from Williams to Grand canyon?
(19:35:20) Alley – Williams to the Grand Canyon is approximately a 1 hour drive going North on Highway 64.
(19:35:36) Alley – Did you want info specifically on tours out of Williams or other locations too?
(19:35:44) Visitor – Do you think we can see it all in one day?
(19:36:22) Alley – It’s impossible to see the entire Grand Canyon – it’s huge. But you can accomplish a lot in one day driving yourself to the various viewpoints. The best way to see a lot of the canyon in a short amount of time is to fly over it.
(19:37:01) Visitor – How much does it cost the helicopter ride?
(19:37:14) Visitor – Info in tours will be great
(19:37:19) Alley – Prices start at $160 per person and go up from there
(19:37:31) Visitor – Jeep?
(19:38:05) Visitor – I would like to get some info about touristic places in the Canyon and Williams, as well.
(19:38:38) Alley – There are two kinds of jeep tours: Rimside and Inner Canyon. The latter go to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
(19:39:00) Visitor – That will be nice. My son will love that!
(19:39:10) Alley – Inner Canyon Jeep Tours?
(19:39:18) Visitor – How about train?
(19:39:36) Visitor – Yes
(19:40:10) Alley – Prices on the Grand Canyon Railway range from $92 per person to $220 per person depending on class of service. Children under 16 are not allowed on the Luxury Parlor Car or Observation Dome; all ages are welcome on Coach and First Class.
(19:40:20) Alley – Inner Canyon Jeep Tours from Williams are $229 per person
(19:40:50) Visitor- Ok. Thx…I have to look at my budget.
(19:41:09) Visitor – So, to enter the park is $25 per person?
(19:41:38) Alley – Actually it’s $25 per vehicle (if you drive yourself) and it’s good for 1 week’s time.
(19:41:51) Visitor – One car?
(19:42:03) Visitor – I am driving my own car with my son and my mom
(19:42:06) Alley – Yes, one car and everyone in it.
(19:42:27) Visitor -So, it’s 25 for the 3 of us?
(19:42:32) Alley – Yep 🙂
(19:43:01) Visitor – Cool.
(19:43:10) Visitor – Thanks again.
(19:43:18) Visitor – have a good day
(19:43:21) Alley – You’re welcome, please let us know if we can help with anything else.
(19:43:44) Visitor -Yes, I will!
