Our local, certified tour guides will share their first-hand experience and take you to hidden gems. You’ll see the full length of the Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim with breathtaking Grand Canyon views. Here, views change with the weather and time of day to ensure you never see the same sights twice.
Our custom 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 area. Feel free to ask any questions. Your guide will happily tailor the tour to your interests.
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 Lipan 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.

Great, educational, the right amount of time
Interesting, fun, sorry when it was over.
It was the best part of our vacation. Jim was so good with our boys, ages 7 and 10. Full of information we would never of known if we didn't go on the tour.

Great tour, our guide Karla was fun, informative and took very good care of us. She showed us the Grand Canyon in a way we never would have been able to on our own. Even helped us take great photos. Highly recommend Karla and Pink Jeep Tours.
good but a lot i could have done on my own except for the knowledge the guide shared.
Informative and enjoyable
EXCELLENT; ALL THE INFO WE LEARNED FROMN THE GUIDE. I HAD DIFFICULTY WALKING, AND HE PARKED NEAR THE RIM SO I COULD HAVE A VIEW FROM THE JEEP.
