Popular Vacation - Family Hummer Tour
Every popular vacation destination has the places most visitors go and see, and the hidden gems they may miss if they happen to blink. On the Grand Canyon Family Adventure, you’ll experience both: iconic, picture-postcard Grand Canyon views, and hands-on fun and learning experiences that will surprise and delight you!
Join Buck Wild Grand Canyon Hummer Tours for a half-day excursion that “kids” of all ages will love. Begin with Buck Wild’s Signature Hummer Tour of Grand Canyon South Rim. Ride in comfort in an open-air humvee vehicle, repurposed especially for sightseeing. Traveling on fully-paved roads, you’ll hit the Grand Canyon viewpoints that showcase the vastness and complexity of the mighty gorge carved over millions of years by the Colorado River. You’ll spend approximately 2 hours learning about the geology, plant and animal life, and human history of the park with a professional driver guide as you visit viewpoints such as Duck on a Rock, Yavapai Point, and more.
Visit Grand Canyon Junction - Valle, AZ
Up next, it’s time to head South to Grand Canyon Junction, aka Valle, AZ, to get up close and personal with live birds of prey at Raptor Ranch. Learn about the hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls that have called the Grand Canyon home for millions of years. Trained handlers perform daily flight demonstrations with these majestic birds, and may even allow you to touch one – full safety precautions in place, naturally.
Yabba-Dabba-Doo to Bedrock City too!
Afterward, get ready to say “Yabba-dabba-doo” at Bedrock City! This colorful monument to the Hanna-Barbera cartoon “The Flintstones” is a kitschy slice of 1970s pop culture, which almost met the wrecking ball when Raptor Ranch moved in. After much public outcry, the property’s new owners respectfully incorporated the old park into the new facility. Relive your memories with Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty, Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, and Dino. Then try your luck at digging up some real dinosaur bones at Raptor Ranch’s interactive dinosaur exhibit and fossil dig. You’ll also learn about hydroponic (soil-free) gardening and its implications for the future of our planet.
Lunch on the Tour!
If all that activity has worked up an appetite, no worries – you’ll enjoy a Boxed Lunch on your Tour while visiting the rim of the Grand Canyon.
Reflecting on your busy day, you’ll be so glad you signed up for this family adventure that showed you so much of the Grand Canyon, both on the rim and under the radar.
