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 it 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.

Fantastic tour, lots of great stops and Jewel was super informative and fun
It was great, we had a great time saw some great views!
It was fantastic and we loved Lucy!
The tour was amazing. The information provided by the guide made it worth every dollar!
I really liked the tour of the South Rim in the GC. It gave us a good, complete tour of the South Rim and things to see and do on our own.
The views were great, and William was a great guide!
Our tour was awesome as was our guide Halle. Very informative. We learned a lot of information in just three hours. To anyone reading this review, if you are in the area book it you will definitely not regret doing it. Thanks Pink Jeep we loved it.
I read several reviews before booking this trip. I agree that you can travel to all the places on your own. However, the wealth of knowledge that our guide, Frank, gave us in 3 short hours was priceless and not found on any of the informational maps. We really enjoyed learning about the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas. My kids are 9, 10 and 11 and also were engaged in the conversations. We were also given tips and suggestions for the next day on what to see. Totally worth the money to book this tour and Frank was awesome!
