Our local, certified tour guides will share their first-hand experience and take you to hidden gems. You’ll visit both the South Rim and East Rim of Grand Canyon National Park with breathtaking canyon views. Views change with the weather and time of day to ensure you never see the same sights twice.
At 7,500 feet in elevation, you’ll be at the highest point on the South Rim. Peer into the canyon to view trails and buttes as your guide explains their significance. Early risers will see light glowing over the sweeping vistas.
You'll stop at Grand View Point to see more expansive views of the Grand Canyon than any other area on the South Rim. If you’re looking for a quiet moment to reflect, linger here while overlooking Vishnu Schist. This formation is home to rocks over 1 billion years old. Which makes this the most ancient geology at the Grand Canyon. Be sure to capture photos of the towering rock spires and temples against the sky. Hance Rapids churn below, and Seventy Five Mile Creek runs its long course.
Visit the Desert View Watchtower for the best view of the Colorado River. Known as one of the best views at Grand Canyon National Park, you can view the Painted Desert up to 100 miles.
The IMAX movie and park admission are included in your tour. Showtimes are hourly at half-past the hour.
IMAX Movie is viewed either before or after your Jeep® tour, your choice. Showtimes are hourly at half-past the hour. Grand Canyon National Park re-entry requires the purchase of a park pass.

It was too cold for jeeps if they are not going to be fully enclosed. I would not recommend this tour in the winter time.
It was very informative. Personally I didn’t care about the trees and the animals, but I guess you have to fill in the time it takes to drive in.
The tour was interesting, pleasant, and thorough. Our guide, Halle, was very engaging, humorous, and knowledgeable.
It was great! I had a tough time finding Rey on this survey due to her name being listed different, but we hope Rey knows she gave a great tour and made the 3 hours fly by because we had so much fun.
Great tour but it was all based on how much knowledge and energy Brad brought to the experience. Cannot say how much we loved his enthusiasm
Haile was an excellent guide. She was welcoming, interesting and entertaining. She was thoughtful and conscious of the needs of each person. We learned about the history, wildlife, and natural development. She had entertaining stories that helped us learn as well as engaged us in asking questions. It was well worth it. Truly beautiful Views of canyon and Hopi art . Bill and Roxanne Wilson
