Private Guided Tours

Are you looking for a private guide? If you have a small group and would like a private guided tour of the Grand Canyon, Northern Arizona, or Southern Utah, Rubicon Outdoors has knowledgeable guides available for private guided tours on a time-available basis. A group of just 6-8 people will receive pricing very similar to our scheduled group tours, and guides for smaller groups can be arranged for a small premium. One advantage of booking a private guide is the flexibility to enjoy one of our standard routes, or to create your own personalized itinerary. Choose your own hiking companions and pace. Stay in campgrounds, 5-star hotels, or anything in between, from a few days to a few weeks.  Browse through some of our standard options, and give us a call or email to start working on the right itinerary for your family or group.

About Private Guided Tours

What will your private guided tour include?

Private guided tours are just like our group tours, and include prepaid hotels with breakfast and dinner, picnic lunches each day, a private guide for your family or group, all transfers to and from trailheads.  Our private guided tour pricing assumes 1 guide for your group, and this can be customized if you have a larger group or need additional guides.

Not included are drinks with your meals, some dinners (as noted), extras (such as laundry, phone calls from the room, etc), or transportation not covered by your tour itinerary. Exact details vary slightly from tour to tour, so see the individual tour descriptions for complete details.

We can arrange any of our standard guided tours as a private guided tour, or we can get creative and make up your own itinerary from scratch!  Just let us know what you have in mind, and we’ll work with you to make it happen.

How does it work?

Our private guided tours can generally be booked for any number of people and any dates that work for you.  If you know which trip you’d like, ask us about dates and availability, then sign up online and we’ll do the rest!  Private guided tours can also be customized, so if you would like to do something tailor-made for just you, let us know, and we’ll see what we can do for you.  If you have any questions at all, just ask.  We’re always a quick phone call or short email away!
