Take part in a special Grand Canyon sunset tour. Our tour guides will share first-hand knowledge of the unique landscape, and take you to remote viewpoints along the South and East Rims. You’ll ride in a custom-built Pink® Jeep® with no barrier between you and the desert. This is the perfect way to experience The Grand Canyon at sunset.
The first stop is at Pipe Creek Vista. Here you’ll stare down a beautifully colored canyon that carves its way into the greater whole of the Grand Canyon. From here, look out to see Vishnu Schist—the oldest rocks at the Grand Canyon. You’ll also see Hance Rapids, some of the most violent whitewater on the Colorado River.
Your tour continues on to a 7,500 foot overlook. The highest point on the South Rim for amazing photo ops. Our tour guides have a deep knowledge of the Grand Canyon, and the native people who have lived here for centuries. You’ll hear forgotten tales from different points of view and learn how some natural landmarks were named.
Next, continue on your sunset tour to the Desert View Watchtower. Known as one of the best views at the Grand Canyon, it offers a place to sit and view the Canyon and the surrounding 100 miles. Your Grand Canyon sunset tour will finish at Lipan Point, as the sun descends behind the cliffs and the desert begins to glow.
Price includes Grand Canyon National Park admission fees and free tickets to the IMAX movie Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.
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.

The tour was fun and exciting. Our tour guide was excellent, energetic and knowledgeable. Sam went above and beyond to ensure we had a positive experience and were able to see the best views of the canyon. He also took several pictures of my family that we are thrilled to have. The tour was our best time in the Grand Canyon.
Our guide Heather was amazing! She had only been doing this for 1 week bit you would never know it, she was a natural! She was very knowledgeable and took TONS of family pictures for us!
Sam was amazing! He knew so much and made it so interesting! He knew so much and got us so intrigued after leaving we wrote down everything we learned so we wouldn’t forget. He was friendly, a great photographer, and so relatable! He seriously deserves a raise and his day off! Really tho give him a raise.
It was great, everything and then some!
I couldn't hear very clearly when we were driving. I was at the back.
The tour was exhilarating, well scheduled, and educational!
Lucy is awesome and very knowledgeable about the canyon, wildlife, culture, plants, etc. We were excited to learn while taking the tour, and she took some awesome pics for us!
It would have been difficult if not impossible for my partner to have heard any of Colins great narration! The other 2 across from me from Texas were having a hard time too! It is no reflection on Colin he was superb - its the sound and mike- BTW I have worked as a "tour guide" myself at Universal Studios, Los Angeles, Busch Gardens, Van Nuys. Love the open back - the wind, engine, air, extraneous noise but it may be a problem for seniors, disabled, hard of hearing - what do you do if they are deaf? "Disabled" people don't always like to be "singled out" - "outed" and wont speak up for themselves - So I appreciated when I registered for another tour - they told me there was a hour walk/hike - so she was able to switch us to another "sunset" option! That was great! AND it just so happened when Colin asked who would like to sit up front my partner "volunteered" - OR I am certain he would not have heard anything while on the "Jeep"
It was fantastic. We loved that our guide drove past all the other jeeps and crowds and took us to places we could experience nature rather than crowds. We loved hearing all the stories and Jason made sure to direct questions to our 7 year old to keep him involved. He was more than accommodating, he used both of the cameras we bought to get pictures of our group and made sure we had enough time to stop at each place. He also made an unplanned stop for our 3 year old to have a potty break! He asked about our family and backgrounds and related to us to make us feel comfortable. Dallas (7 years old) was so excited to be talking to him. We learned many things we've told our families about when we show them pictures and our 3 year old was so excited to ride in a pink jeep! We will definitely recommend Pink Jeep Tours and Jason to all of our friends and family.
Our tour was great. The sunset was beautiful and our guide has us there in time to get the full experience.
