About
Experience the Grand Canyon from a biblical creation perspective with Canyon Ministries. Meeting inside the park at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center flag pole about four hours before the sun sets, the Sunset Rim Tour visits the very best locations of the South Rim’s east side. Along Desert View Drive, you will ride comfortably in our tour vehicle to each amazing overlook and vista. Once we arrive at each spot on the tour, we will hop off the vehicle for incredible views, exploration, and exciting teaching tied into everything we’re seeing. During the tour, your guide will spend time sharing about the geology, plants, animals, and people history of the canyon—and of course, the biblical message of Creation and the Flood as recorded in the book of Genesis. At the end of the tour, we will close out the day with the One who made it as the sun sets far to the west over the rim. *GROUP DISCOUNTS + additional tours, backpacking, & river trips found on our Canyon Ministries website.

      I wanted to love this tour but I didn’t.
      I wanted to love this tour, but I didn’t. It takes a certain energetic personality to be a good tour guide, especially on a full day trip. Our tour guide was a lovely person, but he just did not have the skillset needed to give an engaging, full day tour. The ride there was an excruciating hour and half of what came across as a monotone sermon. Kids were bored and so were at least some of the adults. At the Canyon, I did not feel the creation story was told effectively, and I was disappointed in the way some things were said. The place we stopped for lunch was crowded and we had to wait a long time to get what turned out to be really bad food. At the remaining stops, the tour guide did not give us much, if any, information and background on them. All in all, I think it comes down to what you are looking for in a tour. Perhaps others would feel differently, but I cannot recommend this tour based on my experience.

      The best comprehensive tour!
      Eddy Bessler was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He gave us a new Biblical perspective on the formation of the Grand Canyon, Desert View and Wupatki monument, Sunset Crater monument. We asked tons of questions (sometimes x2) and he was so patient. He always gave us the Biblical view and scriptural references. He pointed out the difference in rock stratification. I would do it again! I've already referred friends to this tour.

      Exceeded expectations
      Luke was amazing and spiritually sound. He was funny, personable, knowledgable, interactive, considerate and well rounded. Always honoring God and leading us to examine our own understanding. Would recommend to anyone. Scenery was amazing, unable to put into words. Cost was reasonable and we were well taken care of.

      Bible + Science
      This experience was amazing. We learned so much scientifically and biblically. The tour was go with the flow and relaxed with biblical teachings periodically. Our tour guide, Bruce, was incredibly knowledgeable and anointed to teach the Word of God. The kids were a little tired by the last two attractions but it was still 100% worth it. The bus was comfortable and we didn’t have to worry about gps and just took in the sights!

      Of course the canyon is amazing to experience. Yet, it was made even more awe inspiring by our guide who showed us how it all points to our amazing, powerful, and just God. Thank you for sharing the science that reveals the truth of the Bible!

      One Canyon; 2 world views
      We were driven to 4 or 5 viewing sites along the South Rim. Spectacular views! Our guide explained the flood that destroyed the world. He also explained what caused the Grand Canyon to be formed. Amazing! (It wasn’t the Colorado River.)

      Highlight of our Grand Canyon Visit
      My husband and I saw a FB ad for Canyon Ministries and followed up reading reviews and decided to book the morning rim tour. We could not be more pleased with the entire experience. We received a text the day before confirming time and meeting place. We meet Bob Smart as a group and loaded up to begin promptly at 8:00 am and made our way to first outlook. Bob's passion for the subject (Genesis Flood) is exciting and his love for Jesus is obvious. He broke down the geology part of the tour in a simple way and used visuals to enhance the topic. The scriptures were used to tie the two topics and it really all made perfect sense! We are grateful for your ministry and highly recommend anyone interested in a Biblical based understanding of the Grand Canyon's formation pick a tour that works for you and GO! We have already shared the website with friends and will continue to do so. This tour was the highlight of our trip to the Grand Canyon. I have not doubt that Bob is the best (wink wink) but would be confident in any of the team members.

      The Highlight of Our Whole Trip
      My husband and I planned a trip to the Grand Canyon and surrounding area for our 45th wedding anniversary and booked this 4 Hour Morning Rim Tour with Canyon Ministries as part of that trip. It turned out to be foundational and the highlight of our two weeks in the west! Dana was an excellent, gifted, friendly and knowledgeable guide/teacher. Her love for God, people and science was very evident. She told of how she grew up in a non-Christian home, went to a secular college as a science major - and the "billions of years theory" just never made sense to her...we certainly connected with that! When we looked at the canyon, it seemed obvious to us that something CATASTROPHIC happened - not just a simple stream of water eating its way down through the rocks for a billion years! Reading from Scripture, she explained a more reasonable and plausible way - Noah's Flood and the resulting events that accompanied it! It was a world-wide flood ... and it changed the world! I called this tour "foundational" for us, because as we traveled to Antelope Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, the evidence of all she had explained was visible to us everywhere we went. Our trip became a worship experience. What a Mighty God we serve! The van ride was comfortable and we felt safe in Dana's care. The tour was nicely paced. There were water bottles available and also a good set of binoculars, which was helpful, and time was made for potty breaks. We are telling everyone about Canyon Ministries! Book it! - you will not regret it.

      We had a tour with Bob. It was better than we could have imagined! Bob was so enthusiastic and passionate about the facts he shared with us, strengthening our faith. He was engaging and made the tour fun on top of being informative. Don’t miss out!

      The truth about the Grand Canyon
      I wanted to book a tour for my family at the Grand Canyon. I knew that most companies would share the secular view of the age of the earth. My family and I don’t believe that. We believe in a young earth. I am so happy that I found Grand Canyon Ministries and their tour. Bob did a great job of explaining the geological rock layers and how it supports the biblical perspective. This should be at every national park!

      THE BEST RIVER RAFT TRIP
      An experience of a life time! 9 days seems like a long time camping on the Colorado River banks but the time went by fast. Side canyon hikes, the Biblical explanation of the geology laid down by a global flood, 187 river miles of calm water, rifles and incredible white water, morning devotional time and evening circle time and the food! A version of a commercial kitchen set up ever day with amazing meals in great abundance. If you've ever considered a raft trip through Grand Canyon I strongly suggest this trip with options for 3-4 day, 7 day or 9 day.

      Great Tour-Tons of Information. God is Good.
      This was by far the best tour we have taken of the Grand Canyon. The tour guide was highly knowledgeable and gave context for how the Grand Canyon was formed from a Biblical perspective. It made something like the Amazing Grand Canyon even more impactful.

    We LOVED our tour! We opted for the full day adventure and it was worth every moment. Our guide, Bob, was absolutely fantastic. He provided us with so much rich, historical information regarding the formation of the canyon from a clear Biblical worldview. Bob took great pains to give us the "Big Reveal" so our entire family could experience seeing the canyon for the first time together. It was breathtaking and brought both my husband and I to tears. If you are looking to hear the TRUTH about the canyon, this is the tour to take! Thank you Bob and thank you Canyon Ministries for the day of a lifetime!

    Bob, our tour guide was not only congenial and informative, but you couldn't help but be inspired by his passion. He puts his whole self into the experience and as though we were the first tour group he ever showed the canyon to. We loved it and he even offered to take a few pictures of us as a couple.
    All of the knowledge he imparted, he backed with facts and some notebook power points. The sunset tour was a wonderful, wonderful experience for us...and we brought back Bob's card to share with others who might even want the rafting tour.

    The Canyon Ministries 4 Hour Sunset Tour was by far the highlight of our entire week long trip out west! We went with three other life-long couples and each of us felt the same way. Nate was fantastic with his detailed explanations and relating our experience back to Holy Scriptures. We bombarded him with questions and he kept us captivated with his answers and explanations. And this was besides the incredible views and stops to take in the awesomeness of God's creation from several canyon vantage points. I was looking forward to this experience for a long time and it was even better than I had ever anticipated, highly recommend this for anyone who wants the "real story" of the Grand Canyon.

    The Grand Canyon changes its looks continually throughout the day into dusk. We saw a beautiful rain across the chasm, clouds that shifted casting shadows onto the colored Canyon walls, and lastly a sunset that threw colors all around. We took the rails to rim Pullman train car to the canyon and then joined Paul with Canyon Ministries for the four hour sunset rim tour. He delivered us back to our hotel in the evening. Look for Canyon ministries train in Sunset Rim tour because it is a relaxing way to travel and you are not rushed. Paul’s knowledge of God‘s word and the application of it to creation is amazing.

    If I could rate this tour with more than 5 stars, I would! My husband and I took our three teenage daughters, and we learned so much about God's creation, the Flood, God's character, and the gospel. Our tour guide Adam was kind, approachable, and knowledgeable. I loved how he brought everything back to the gospel at the end of the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone; it is well worth the pricetag (which I thought was high until we went on the tour)! I had seen the Grand Canyon as a teenager but hadn't done a tour, so I looked at the big hole in the ground, thought it was cool, and left. There is no comparison between my first experience at the Canyon and this last one with the tour. We all came away in awe of our amazing, loving, and merciful God. Thank you, Canyon Ministries and Adam!

    This tour was excellent. I have visited the Grand Canyon many many times on various tours but I have not done a Biblical viewpoint tour until my most recent trip. I’ve heard all the millions of years theory so often that I have to be careful about my disbelieving eye roll. But this tour by Canyon Ministries was captivating, intriguing, interesting, motivating, and just plain fun. My heart was full and you can be sure there were absolutely no eye rolls. This should be required for all seminary students. Pastors could benefit from it as well. Highly highly recommend this tour company. You won’t regret it.

    This is the ONLY tour you should take when you visit the spectacular Grand Canyon. Our amazing guide Eddy not only shared the history of the canyon according to the Biblical account of creation and the flood but he also shared his own personal and very moving testimony. His Gospel presentation was more moving and heartfelt than anything I've heard in church. Best Tour Ever!

    Our tour made 4 stops along the south rim of the Grand Canyon ending with a great sunset view at Lipan Point. They were all beautiful locations to view the Canyon and learn about its formation from the great flood. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained the various rock layers and how they were laid down. She read from the Book of Genesis as she explained how those events formed the canyon.

    From this tour, there is no doubt that scientific interpretation of the canyon evidence by far supports a rapid post-flood cutting of the canyon rather than millions of years of gradual and minute changes. I recommend the Grand Canyon Ministries to learn more about how God created the canyon from a Biblical world view.

    Also, you will enjoy the comfortable van and the comradery of fellow Christ followers.

    This was beyond an amazing experience. Truly wonderful. Bob was a phenomenal guide and so informative. We loved that he gave both perspectives which cements your belief in God even more. Definitely an expert at what he does. Took us to spots with the most breathtaking views we’ve ever seen in our life. We were also blessed to see a rainstorm off in the distance while watching out sunset. A sunset and a rain storm (at the Grand Canyon) all in one picture. If that doesn’t make you believe God is real !!!!

    Our 4-hour sunset tour with Bryce was the highlight of our trip to AZ. Bryce took our group to several South Rim locations that I've never been to before and found us a great spot for watching the sun go down over the Grand Canyon. He even had blankets for our group as it was very cold and windy and our coats weren't enough to keep warm. We thoroughly enjoyed his knowledge of both the Canyon and the Bible. We had some interesting and deep and meaningful conversations both with him and other members of our tour group. I highly recommend this tour for a 'different perspective' on how the Grand Canyon was formed.
