A Day in the Life of a Grand Canyon Tour Leader

We had the pleasure of speaking with Rachel, a tour guide for our Grand Canyon camping tours. I would love to tell you how much she loves her work, for her to be able to take customers on a journey of the southwestern United States, but her first hand narrative speaks for itself.  These tour guides absolutely love what they do and transcend that feeling into the experience of the customers.

Top 10 Things to See on a Budget (Or for FREE!) In Las Vegas
