Guests take ground transport from their South Rim hotel to Page, Arizona where the tour will start. Your tour group will ride a motorized raft that holds up to 32 passengers. You'll drift down the Colorado River with views of Glen Canyon on either side. Enjoy a boxed lunch during the tour. There will be a stop on the riverbank to go ashore to see ancient petroglyphs. Your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the symbols and history of the people who once inhabited that region. Next up, your raft will go through Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River. The raft makes its final stop at Lee's Ferry and then finally take the return trip to the South Rim. The return trip makes a pit stop at the Cameron Trading Post.
