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. Show times are hourly at half-past the hour.
IMAX Movie is viewed either before or after your Jeep tour, your choice. Show times are hourly at half-past the hour. Grand Canyon National Park re-entry requires the purchase of a park pass.

Tyler, our guide, was great. His jokes fit our group perfectly, he handled all the personalities very well. He knew what level of activity we were comfortable with, and made great suggestions of places to see the Grand Canyon off the beaten path. It was a wonderful trip!
It was a lot of fun! Great way to get familiar with the Grand Canyon!!
Informative, easy access to the Jeep.
Very fun and educational. We had an age range from our daughter who was 9 to the couple with us who where probably in their 70’s and I feel like Brad bridged the gap excellently
It was excellent coming back next year
