Our local, certified tour guides will share their first-hand experience and take you to hidden gems. You’ll visit both the South Rim and East Rim of Grand Canyon National Park with breathtaking canyon views. Views change with the weather and time of day to ensure you never see the same sights twice.
At 7,500 feet in elevation, you’ll be at the highest point on the South Rim. Peer into the canyon to view trails and buttes as your guide explains their significance. Early risers will see light glowing over the sweeping vistas.
You'll stop at Grand View Point to see more expansive views of the Grand Canyon than any other area on the South Rim. If you’re looking for a quiet moment to reflect, linger here while overlooking Vishnu Schist. This formation is home to rocks over 1 billion years old. Which makes this the most ancient geology at the Grand Canyon. Be sure to capture photos of the towering rock spires and temples against the sky. Hance Rapids churn below, and Seventy Five Mile Creek runs its long course.
Visit the Desert View Watchtower for the best view of the Colorado River. Known as one of the best views at Grand Canyon National Park, you can view the Painted Desert up to 100 miles.
The IMAX movie and park admission are included in your tour. Show times are hourly at half-past the hour.
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’d recommend it to anyone.
I envisioned something a bit different, but was pleasantly surprised with the tour
Good but overpriced
I treated my mom to three days in the Sedona area, and she'd never seen the GC before. I don't know the area well, and our time was brief. Three hours will never do such an epic place much justice, but our guide is obviously into history and storytelling, enjoys his job, and knows the best spots to show his guests.
Guide was great. Knew where to take pictures for best results. Knowledge was off the charts! Could tell he loved his job. Perfect way to see Grand Canyon
Nice, but a few more stops would have been nice. Also, at the dessert tower, it is easy to loose track of time. We had to round up one family when it was time to go. Maybe the driver could send s text to each family when it is time to leave. Just some sort of a notification
It was great!
The coordinator should have told me I could have done this exact trip by myself and only paid $35 entry fee to the park. I could have driven to every spot the tour stops myself.
