For general information on the Grand Canyon area, call the Arizona Office of Tourism (1-800-842-8257). The Fred Harvey Company, happy in its motto “Traditional Hospitality Since 1876,” still operates the now-landmarked Colter buildings, which function today as they always did, as refreshment stops and retail establishments. Call the company at (520-638-2401) to find out about hours or to make reservations at the stately El Tovar Hotel, Colter’s pioneer-style Bright Angel Lodge, or Phantom Ranch, at the canyon’s floor. The Harvey Company offers guided bus trips along the canyon rim that include stops at the Hermit’s Rest, Hopi House, Watchtower, and other Colter landmarks.
