The Southwest is famous for its vivid sunset skies, but the Grand Canyon adds even more magic to the moment. This tour includes the same stops as the Grand Entrance Tour, but with the addition of a special twilight experience.
Enjoy the ride in our custom, open-air Pink® Jeep®. Your Certified Interpretive Guide knows just where to take you for an introduction to this national landmark. See the gorgeous views along the rim, feel the breeze, hear the birds and smell the pines on your journey to scenic viewpoints. Your guide is a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of the canyon, from geology and botany to infamous myths and legends.
Stop at Grandview Point to see an area that was once mined for copper, but eventually gave way to a new industry: tourism. Grandview was the first area to welcome visitors in the late 1800s and even had a luxurious hotel, but no trace of it remains today. Your guide can shed more light on the history of this tranquil, tree-lined locale. Your tour features two more stops along the south rim, which can vary depending on conditions.
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.
Your tour of the Grand Canyon includes park admission fees and tickets to see the IMAX movie, Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets. This timeless film shares captivating history lessons on a six-story screen, complete with in-depth looks at the area’s native tribes, explorers and places that few have seen.
IMAX Movie is viewed either before or after your Jeep tour, your choice. Showtimes are hourly at half-past the hour. Grand Canyon National Park re-entry requires the purchase of a park pass.

Rob, our guide, elevated this tour from What could have been just interesting and fun, to extra enjoyable, engaging, and a memory for all 7 of us. Rob deserve a raise, his own podcast, and a travel show! Thanks Rob!
very good because of the tour guide
Our tour was amazing.
Had a nice short stop at duck on rock, then watched the sunset at Moran Point. William made everyone feel safe, was very informative about both science and Native American information about the Grand Canyon. He walked us to some amazing quiet spots where little or no people were around. Our drive home he told us some native American stories and even sang a song to us in Native American language. I'm sure all guests have preferences on their guides, but we feel so lucky to have had William. Give that man a bonus or a raise!
I was told what general location to gather, but wasn’t sure I was where I was supposed to be. I had to ask, because i wasn’t sure
Rich was an excellent tour guide. He obviously loves the area and is so happy to share his knowledge
Lots of fun and educational.
Rob did an amazing job getting us to multiple lookouts for some of the best views of the canyon. He was informative about everything from safety at the canyon, pointing out hiking trails we could and couldn’t see, names of the different peaks, pointing out rock slides , talking about climates of the canyon, insects of the canyon, animals of the canyon and even pointing out a ton of elk. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon before but this tour topped it by far. We left thinking we needed to come back and do another tour to see more of the canyon.
AMAZING. There are not enough words to describe the knowledge and experience we had with Sam. He made the tour 10 times better. He was so excited to show us around and tell us details and we were 100% with him in the excitement. This was one of a kind - truly spectacular - life experiences that we will remember forever.
