5 Tips to Prepare for Your Grand Canyon Tour, Laughlin, Nevada

Grand Canyon tours are an incredible way to explore one of America’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders. Guided excursions are active daily across the national park, educating attendees about the history and geology of the land. Before you embark, here are a few ways to prepare to ensure you have a fantastic experience.  

How to Ready Yourself for a Grand Canyon Tour

1. Bring Water

Grand Canyon tourThe Grand Canyon is located in the desert, and it isn’t an uncommon occurrence for the temperature to surpass 100 degrees in the national park. In that kind of heat, it doesn’t matter whether you are exerting yourself more than usual. Your body needs to remain well hydrated to avoid any potential health risks. 

2. Wear Comfortable Shoes

While guided tours might not require you to hoof it for the entirety of the excursion, there are plenty of areas that do not have smooth walking paths and are rather rough. Running shoes and hiking boots will be the most ideal, but sports sandals will also do the trick.

3. Pack Sunscreen

The desert sun can be pretty unforgiving on Grand Canyon tours. Prepare your skin by applying sunscreen before your outing, and bring it along for continued protection throughout the day. If you want to go the extra mile, wear a hat, too.

4. Remember Your Camera

Grand Canyon tours are filled with breathtaking beauty you’ll want to remember forever, so don’t leave without grabbing your camera. If you’re planning on using your phone, clear some memory space so you can snap as many photos as you want.

5. Bring a Snack

While most tours these days feed their customers, everyone’s body is different. It’s better to be over prepared than under when it comes to nourishing and hydrating, so even if a lunch or snack item is included on your excursion, pack a little something just in case.
