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 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 on the edge of the Canyon, 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.

I love a structured tour especially traveling with kids. They are forced to listen and are engaged with the guide to be courteous .
Fun and informative, and Chase did a great job fielding questions from both adults AND kids.
Wonderful. Took us away from the crowds. Made us feel special.

Highly recommend it to anyone
Not quite as much as I expected for the cost.
Duff was an excellent tour guide and treated all of his passengers well. 1 Need a location map 2 excellent information about the native vegetation and history was provided 3 Need a memory game for the little kids to have along the way and then get a free hat at the store. This will force families to shop 4 Duff made you feel safe and secure
The Desert View Sunset Tour was amazing. Our guide Sam really tailored our tour to our group and went out of his way to give us a unique and magical experience. As a family of five, we don’t often get photos as a whole group. Sam made sure he found perfect photo ops and took so many family photos I felt like we were also having a professional photo session at the most beautiful place on earth. Thanks, Sam, for an awesome experience and for capturing a night we won’t ever forget!
Intertaining, informative, we were able to see places we wouldn’t have seen on our own, stories of the canyons we wouldn’t have heard otherwise, and the sunset viewing is amazing. Tour of a lifetime!
1- as I’ve said, he was driving thru thick fog at high speeds, that’s unacceptable 2- it was raining and cold, rain came into the Jeep, the temperature was freezing inside.
