The top 10 seem to be hand coded in. having checked backlinks etc etc , domain age etc... some do not make any sense on being there, only thing i can come up with is their monthly adwords expendetures, these are some big players who pay big $$$ every month to them for adwords.....
I rank in the top 10 (in some cases, the top 1) for some terms that are a lot more competitive than Grand Canyon tours, and I don't spend a nickel on AdWords. As far as I know, the other guys don't, either.
There may well be an explanation for why you aren't ranking where you'd like to be, but "Because I don't buy AdWords" isn't likely to be it.
