Explore the South Rim while taking in sunset views on this tour in an iconic, heated Pink® Jeep®. Your first stop at Yavapai Point is the perfect introduction to the Grand Canyon. Here, the eons of erosion reveal layer upon layer of sediment. Your certified tour guide (who is also a Wilderness First Responder) will share the history of the canyon.
At Grand Canyon Village, step back in time at a historic district that was once a stop for stagecoaches. The village is home to El Tovar and Hopi House, both of which opened in 1905. As you walk around this bustling hub, it’s easy to get a sense that you’re sharing the street with pioneers centuries ago.
Enjoy a short, scenic ride to Hermits Rest. This area and its buildings pay tribute to a prospector who carved a trail into the canyon and later lived near Dripping Springs. Hop out of the Jeep and explore the wonders below on a short hike via a rocky path below the rim. Along the way, your guide will show you how to find real marine fossils and teach you about the canyon’s ancient origins. You’ll also view the Hermit Rapids and other landmarks, such as the long-abandoned Hermit Camp. The hike is 1-mile roundtrip.
After you’ve enjoyed a hands-on experience with the area’s landmarks and buildings, you’ll delve into the canyon's past as you watch Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets. This IMAX classic presents history lessons about the explorers of yesteryear and shares wild canyon locations where few people have tread.
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.

We had so much fun. It felt smooth and not rushed. The only thing I wanted to do was hike more. But that’s cause I was curious. The guide was so accommodating
A little speciesist. But generally an enjoyable experience.
Guide was aware that birds aren’t real and that it was the wrangler that died in the book.
The address listed on the confirmation email was not correct. When put into my GPS it led us directly into the state park and we ended up being late for our IMAX movie.
It was fun and beautiful
Just what we were looking for!
We cannot say enough great things about this experience. This was our first time to the Grand Canyon (10/7/2021) and Pink Jeep Tours made the experience absolutely unforgettable. Our tour guide, BRYAN made sure everyone in the group was comfortable and prepared. He paused at pristine places along our hike into the Canyon to take pictures. He checked that everyone was able to keep pace and made adjustments where necessary. We had so many questions about the Canyon, etc. and Bryan was able to answer anything we pondered. Whether it be the history of the Canyon and the area, details about the specific trail we were on (Hermit), and even some of the plant and wildlife there--Bryan knew everything and we learned so much along the way. He shared great stories and was funny! An inspiring hiker himself, he seems to really love his work and that really came across in our experience. Thank you, Bryan!
Amazing! Bryan was super cool, a great photographer (knew the best locations to take pics and even different modes on my phone) and the hike was long enough to be fun but not super strenuous.
Informative and fun!
