Drive On Route 66
The drive to the caverns is as much of an adventure as the caverns themselves. On our tour to the South Rim, you will get to drive along over 80 miles of the historic Route 66 roadway. Between Kingman, Arizona and Seligman, Arizona you get the chance to see the views and experience the nostalgia of the first U.S. highway across the country. Much of the early success of the Grand Canyon Caverns was due to it being located directly off of Route 66 and attracting a multitude of passerby. Along Route 66, your tour guide will tell you about the history of the area to give you a deeper appreciation for the landmark as well.

As you exit Las Vegas, your dedicated tour guide will share interesting facts and information about the area.

This attraction has been open and drawing in visitors for nearly 100 years.
The Grand Canyon Caverns tour is an optional add-on to your South Rim experience. Taking a tour of the caverns means traveling 210 feet below ground level in an elevator to see the inside of the largest dry caves in the United States.
