Looking to go to grand canyon one day Aug 19-21, to do it practically with the train we need a 6am minyan. We could only find 6:30, does anyone know of a 6, or is interested in combining with our 4 men?

pink jeeps: Scenic Rim 2.0 vs Coyote Canyons (going with someone with neck issues)? is scenic rim somehow better beyond the fact that u go faster and bounce more?

Don't recommend Pink jeep with neck problems. It's a real bumpy ride

Hi to all,

I plan on going to Arizona in January and will be staying in The Phoenician. Does anyone know any info about the 11 passenger flight from the hotel to the Grand Canyon- is it dangerous? Is it worth it? and any recommendations for a ATV/Jeeping activity?

Thanks!

The image you posted mentioned Pink Jeep doing the ground tour part.  Just FYI, although the same company, these are not the same Jeeps as the ones used in Sedona.  IIRC, the Jeeps used at the Grand Canyon were enclosed buses painted pink.  Highly recommend Pink Jeep's Broken Arrow Tour out of Sedona.

Why does it say rate unavailable?

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Perhaps try Hyatt - We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa At Gainey Ranch - it was beautiful!

Now the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa shows available, is it walkable to shuls?
