The Grand Canyon’s Finest Finale
Take part in a special evening adventure. Our Certified Interpretive Guides will share first-hand knowledge of the Grand Canyon’s unique landscape, and take you to remote viewpoints along the South and East Rims. Witness Mother Nature’s ultimate grand finale—the dramatic colors of the Southwest at sunset.
You’ll ride in one of our custom-built Pink® Jeep® Wranglers. With no barrier between you and the high desert, this is the perfect way to experience open views and evening breezes.
The first stop is at Pipe Creek Vista, where you will stare down a beautifully colored side 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. These dark layers are estimated to be over 1 billion years old. You’ll also see Hance Rapids, some of the most violent whitewater on the Colorado River. In the distance lies the Unkar Delta, where the river meets a creek to form forceful rapids and fertile land where ancient Pueblo people once cultivated crops. You’ll be awestruck by the towering rock spires, and find a spiritual moment to breathe in the quiet beauty.
Continue on to Navajo Point. At around 7,500 feet, this overlook is the highest point on the South Rim. You’ll see where the Colorado River makes a “big bend” and veers in a new direction. The blue of the sky contrasts with the vivid reds and oranges of the canyon walls to create ideal photo ops.
Your guide has a deep knowledge of the Grand Canyon, as well as 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. Examples include Sinking Ship rock formation and Moran Point, which gets its name from a little-known figure in history.
Soon you’ll visit the Desert View Watchtower. An influential female architect carefully planned this 70-foot stone tower in 1932. It offers a place to sit and reflect upon views of the Painted Desert and the surrounding 100 miles. Your tour’s grand finale happens at Lipan Point, as the sun descends behind the cliffs and the desert begins to glow.
Your tour includes a trip to the nearby IMAX Theater where you’ll see Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets, a timeless film presented on a six-story screen. You’ll get a history lesson about the explorers of yesteryear, and experience wild places that few have seen.
Your tour price includes park admission fees so you can focus on making memories.

I think Sam was amazing. He's genuinely kind and had a wealth of knowledge that he delivered in a fun and entertaining way. He had fun facts that were easy to remember. My girlfriends and I (from LA) were really lucky and glad he was our tour guide!
The tour was beautiful. Frank was VERY knowledgeable not only about the facts of the Canyon, but about everything around the entire area. The best places to eat, other fun things to do. He was very familiar with a large portion of Arizona, Las Vegas, and many many other States. He asked everyone what we were doing after visiting the South Rim. We told him we were going to Sadona, he gave GREAT recommendations as to where to eat, what shops to shop at etc. He also know a lot about the wild life in and around the Canyon and the forest. He was a safe driver, always making sure we were buckled up and secure in the vehicle before driving off. As we got off st each view point, he recommended to go to the right or to the left to capture the best picture, to avoid the crowds etc. He was a great guide!! The Canyon viewpoints were absolutely breathtaking, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your beautiful views of the Canyon with us and giving us such a wonderful memory we will NEVER forget!
It was such a fun experience. Not only did we get the opportunity to witness some incredible sights that were less popular based on our guides recommendation, I learned about the land and history of the canyon as well. I would highly recommend these tours!
Jason gave us many ideas and recommendations on how we will spend the rest of our trip. I also loved how many photo opportunities and pictures that Jason were willing to take
Our tour guide was Great. We would definitely refer your company to anyone going to The Grand Canyon, Sedona or Vegas!
Great variety of history and information about the canyon and the surrounding habitats
The tour did not start on time. We had to wait until another guide came to tend to another group. Also, the guide rambled on and on and was tuned out very quickly.
Very good. Informative.
The tour of the Grand Canyon was amazing. But Jason was able to make it even more special.
Great way to relax and enjoy all the best spots of the canyon
