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.
