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.

Rich is a fabulous guide! Knowledgeable, flexible, clearly loves the Grand Canyon and was SO GOOD with my 80-year-old mom!
The tour was great. We saw so much of the canyon and it was clear Rich loves it! It was interesting to learn a bit about the history and also learn the names of the different areas. I really like that you don't just sit on the jeep! It was great to hop off at certain spots. So many photo opps!
The tour was fantastic. Our expectations were far exceeded. Our guide Jason had extensive knowledge, was able to answer questions in detail and provided comprehensive knowledge with a lot of humor.
Mentioned in my previous comment. Selected the tour because tour encompassed broad view of park. In the end, saw just one end because of weather. Not your call, but think a credit is due.
Great tour with picture perfect stops!
Perfect! Even out teenagers loved it!
