Enjoy scenic views as you ride in an open-air Pink Jeep® on this Grand Canyon South Rim Tour, including Hermits Rest. Stop at Yavapai Point for your first amazing view of the Grand Canyon. See rocks eroded away to reveal layers created by eons of sediment. From the overlook, you’ll notice Phantom Ranch and Bright Angel trails. Your certified tour guide, who is also a Wilderness First Responder, will tell you the history of the Canyon.
Grab a photo op at Grand Canyon Village. This historic district was once a stop for stagecoaches and remains a busy hub today. The village is home to El Tovar and Hopi House, both opened in 1905. Extraordinary views surround you as you stand where pioneers walked centuries ago.
Continue your South Rim Jeep tour to Hermits Rest with scenic views at every turn. The area has fewer crowds due to limited access from March to November.
Next, you'll enjoy a Grand Canyon hiking tour on Hermit Trail. Your guide will lead you down the trail for a fun hike below the rim on a rocky, unmaintained path to view the wonders below. You'll see fossil beds and learn about the Grand Canyon’s geology. The hike is a 1-mile roundtrip with steep declines and inclines.
Price includes Grand Canyon National Park admission fees and free tickets to the IMAX movie Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.
The IMAX Movie may be viewed either before or after your tour. Showtimes are hourly, at half-past the hour. Re-entry to the Grand Canyon National Park requires the purchase of a park pass.
