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 decline and inclines.
Price includes Grand Canyon National Park admission fees and free tickets to the IMAX movie Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.
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.

Extremely costly for what we got Price is the #1 reason, I would not recommend the tour to someone else
Very enjoyable! We were first timers and this truly helped educate us. Plus my 11 and 9 year old were engaged and impressed the whole time.
Halle knocked it out of the park. She is a unique and fun person. She obviously cares about her job and the environment. She’s very knowledgeable. We truly enjoyed our time at the Grand Canyon.
Rob was the best -funny and informative. Also he was very patience with our questions. I even tested him with questions about geology, soil and flora. Very impressive knowledge. We were laughing at his jvehicle reference to a barbie jeep.
It was adventurous and very well put together. I enjoyed the views and hiking
Great tour! Tour guide also provided info that helped us plan the rest of our day.
The tour was fun educational and cool
Really liked how friendly and knowledgeable Bryan was. The Jeep was in great shape and very clean too.
It was great
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made our tour and hike great! Pointed out many different wildlife that we wouldn’t have seen. He made sure that we didn’t miss any family photo ops and went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. We will for sure do another Pink Jeep Tour!!!
