VIDEO & PHOTO GALLERY
Our local Certified Interpretive Guides will share their first-hand experience and take you to hidden gems. You’ll see the full length of the South Rim with breathtaking Grand Canyon views that change with the weather and time of day to ensure you never see the same sights twice.
Our exclusive Pink® Jeep® Wrangler will whisk you past the typical stops up Desert View Drive, not available to buses or shuttles. During your journey, you’ll hear stories of the Native Americans who used to inhabit the surrounding area. Feel free to ask any questions that come to mind; your guide will happily tailor the tour to your interests.
At Navajo Point, gaze upon the Big Bend area and see the Colorado River twist and turn. At 7,500 feet in elevation, you’ll be at the highest natural point on the South Rim. Peer into the canyon to spy trails and buttes as your guide explains their significance. Early risers will be treated to desert colors that glow brightly over the sweeping vistas.
Your next stop at Lipan Point will offer more expansive views of the canyon than any other area on the South Rim. If you’re looking for a tranquil moment to reflect, linger here while overlooking Vishnu Schist. This formation is home to rocks over 1 billion years old, making this the most ancient geology at the Grand Canyon. Hance Rapids churn below, and Seventy Five Mile Creek runs its long course. Be sure to capture photos of the towering rock spires and temples against a broad expanse of sky.
During your visit to the Desert View Watchtower, you might be surprised to learn how young this structure is. The iconic stone tower was designed to reflect ancient Native American examples by an influential female architect. It is the perfect place to rest and reflect. Ask your guide about the history of its construction and murals. Climb to the top to take in Painted Desert views that stretch 100 miles.
Your guide will point out the Sinking Ship on the horizon and the Hakatai Rapids below. Take plenty of photos and hear stories about the historical figure who gave this point its name.
The IMAX experience included in your tour will bring the canyon to life. See aerial views of untamed places, and learn about the discovery and exploration of the area in the film Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.
Your tour price includes the IMAX film and park admission fees.

This was our first visit to the Grand Canyon. Frank pointed out things to us that we would never have seen or learned on our own.
Covered what was advertised and expected
The tour (and guide!) was great. I wish it was a little cheaper.
Excellent - a brilliant introduction to the Grand Canyon, which has left us wanting to learn more. Jason also asked us all what our main interests were and worked hard to make the tour a very personal experience.
I like to relax on tours so it went well.
Chris Meyers was the best tour guide I could ask for. I very smoothly dropped my wife's phone in between two very large boulders in the Grand Canyon. Chris attempted to help me retrieve it for about 10 minutes. We gave up and moved on to the final stop of the tour. There Chris reccomended I check out the general store so that I may find some tools to retrieve the cell phone. Chris was nice enough to drive us back to the spot where I dropped the phone and for 15 minutes he attempted to help me retrieve the phone once again. Mind you we were not on the general path of the grand canyon viewing stop. Chris even climbed down some large rocks in attempt to get the phone out from between these 2 large rocks with a very narrow passage. Chris did not have to do any of this be he never gave up. Eventually we were successful in retrieving the phone! I could not thank Chris enough for the help wit the phone, as this would have ruined my wife's trip due to loss of phone and photos. I even have a picture of Chris and I attempting to get the phone on the Canyon. Again, Chris Meyers is the man!!!
Great tour Guide, Jason Rodriguez, and a nice family that joined us. The tour was engaging, personable, educational, and we felt like we got a "personalized tour" that met our needs and expectations. The photo ops taken by our guide were great.
Will come again
Lucy was great and we loved our tour. We will definitely go back again in a few years.
We cannot compliment Andrew enough. What a wonderful guide, He took us to places that weren't as crowded and understood a healthy balance of education and time and space for us to appreciate everything around us. He did an excellent job with our photos. He used the time in the jeep well, and the time on the ground as well. Super-kudos to him..
