The Southwest is famous for its vivid sunset skies, but the Grand Canyon adds even more magic to the moment. Our Grand Finale Tour includes the same stops as the Grand Entrance Tour, but with the addition of a special twilight experience.
This exclusive excursion breezes you past the typical stops and crowds in our custom Pink® Jeep® Wrangler. The vehicle’s open-air design gets you closer to nature so you can see stunning unobstructed views, feel the evening air, smell the pines and hear the wildlife.
Cruise Desert View Drive while you ride to scenic overlooks. Along the way, you’ll learn all about the canyon, from geology and botany to infamous myths and legends. Your Certified Interpretive Guide will also share stories you won’t hear anywhere else.
You’ll soon gain exclusive access to Grandview Point, a location that shuttle buses don’t visit. Once mined for copper, Grandview became the first South Rim area to welcome tourists. During the late 1800s there was a luxury hotel here, but no trace of it remains. Your guide will shed more light on the area’s history and take photos of your group at this tranquil, tree-lined sanctuary. A short hike through the pine forest will reveal breathtaking views. Beyond the rim, you’ll see Cottonwood and Grapevine creeks.
As your adventure continues, your knowledgeable local guide will make strategic stops to maximize the vistas before sundown. They’ll also point out key landmarks while explaining our place in the canyon’s ecosystem and culture.
Finally, the sun slips below the horizon and the desert is set ablaze with fiery hues. The scene changes every second, so keep your camera ready. The sun’s rays bounce off the rocks to reveal unseen details. Shadows descend to reveal stark visual contrasts. Linger awhile, and after dark, the stars sparkle much bigger and brighter than they appear in populated areas.
As a bonus, you’ll head to the IMAX Theater nearby to see Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets. This film highlight’s the Grand Canyon’s first explorers, ancient Native tribes and wild places that few have seen.
Your tour price includes park admission and IMAX movie tickets so you can focus on making memories. Re-entry to the park after the tour is not included.
