Best Flagstaff Tours

Tours are guided activities and attractions that you can explore and experience without being required to actively participate. This is different from hiring a rock climbing guide or snowboarding instructor, where you would have to do almost as much work as the guide throughout the activity. Tours, for example, are things like helicopter rides to the Grand Canyon, ranger talks at National Monuments, art museum discussions and guided talks at the Arboretum.

Going on a tour is a great idea for people who like to learn more about the particular point of interest being visited. Many people visit the Grand Canyon, look over the rim, snap a few photos and go home. But going on a Grand Canyon tour will help visitors understand just how magnificent it really is.

Tour guides will point out things about the Grand Canyon that might have gone unnoticed by a first-timer. The same goes for observing the planets at Lowell Observatory, plants at the Arboretum and artifacts at the Native American museum. Tours are always a great way to make the most of your time when visiting something new. People spend years studying passionately about the thing being engaged; wouldn't it be nice to know just how significant and special that thing really is? Flagstaff has a few tours in town, but many of these tours can take you to other parts of central and northern Arizona like Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Sunset Crater, and other geologically interesting areas. Take a look at these Flagstaff tours and see if any of them piques your interest.
