Travel from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon on one of the most popular experiences Pink Adventure Tours has to offer. Your Certified Interpretive Guide will pick you up at your hotel in one of our custom-made, luxurious Pink Adventure Tour Trekker vehicles. Then, it’s adventure time.
Your tour sets off along historic Route 66 through the Mojave Desert, past the old Santa Fe Railway. Along the way, you’ll gain insider information about the wildlife, history, myths and legends of the Southwest. Approaching the Canyon, the landscape outside turns to the picturesque mountains and ponderosa pines of the Coconino Plateau.
After arriving, you’ll stop at the historic Bright Angel Lodge—just feet from the rim. Part of the Grand Canyon Village National Historic Landmark District, the property boasts a gift shop, soda fountain, ice cream shop and history room that bring the property’s past to life.
Next stop: unforgettable views. An easy walk from the Visitors Center, Mather Point showcases the vastness of the Grand Canyon. It’s the perfect place to take panoramic photos, with distant views of the North Rim visible across the 10-mile expanse.
It’s more non-stop photo ops at Yavapai Observation Station. This unique viewpoint offers more stunning vistas and an indoor experience that covers the site’s geology and topography with a wall of windows for unobstructed views over the rim. As you explore, your guide will share unique insights about this natural wonder.
You won’t want to leave without a souvenir to commemorate this amazing experience. The last stop takes you to a local trading post with art, jewelry and other keepsakes crafted by Native American artisans.
To ensure that you can focus on your excursion, Pink Adventure Tours takes care of all the details. This includes a fresh breakfast, snack, full picnic lunch, complimentary bottled water and all park entrance fees.

The tour was enjoyable
We had a fantastic day out with Debbie, who was very friendly and informative. She was the perfect balance of engaging and non-intrusive when we wanted some time alone to explore the trails. The Grand Canyon itself is just stunning and completely different to the West Rim side. Debbie was able to point out the differences and major landmarks. The vehicle was very comfortable and breakfast/lunch was of good quality. The tour from start to finish was well organised, with plenty of information, beautiful scenery and interesting pit-stops! Would highly recommend Pink Jeep Tours for any of the tours around this area!
This is not a cheap tour compared to the Gray Line and similar large group tours to the Grand Canyon, but it was well worth the extra money. We had a small group (our twosome and one other threesome), a large jeep and our guide John Holmes to ourselves all day. A minibus came to pick us up early at 6.15am from our hotel (several hotel stops for a total larger group of about 12, but still not many stops), and then took us to a rendezvous point where we dispersed into our smaller groups and guides. We had breakfast in the jeep (a provided bagel with cream cheese, fruit and fruit juice) as John started the long drive to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. He gave us interesting commentary on the way and we made two rest stops and had our provided lunch en route (a sandwich, bag of chips, carrots, cheese and crackers and cookies) before arriving at the Canyon. We then spent four hours at the Canyon itself and had plenty of time to take photos, walk along a trail along the edge, and visit the Kolb Brothers old studio (where the mule rides have gone from for many decades). John was a lovely presence throughout - very gentle, very informative and kind. He took the trouble to accommodate different people’s wishes as much as possible and was helpful without being intrusive, which I imagine is a difficult balance to get. He and his jeep were also a welcome source of iced bottles of water throughout the day. The long drive back to Las Vegas was accompanied by some interesting DVDs about the Canyon, and then a film for entertainment as it got dark. We were dropped off at our hotel safe and sound at about 6.30pm. Nothing can prepare you for the Grand Canyon, which is simply stunning, but this trip to see it was also great. Thank you, John!
This tour was an amazing experience from start to finish. Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable and fun. The Grand Canyon is just breathtaking. I am very happy I got do this with Pink Jeep, I would highly recommend this tour.
John was excellent. Very knowledgable and helpful
I loved the information we were given, comfy transport a great group and the fact that we were given time to walk from one point to another on our own and take photos etc
Was able to enjoy the view longer with a small group and able to shop leisurely and not feel rushed.The views are stunning and we were able to ask questions,you don’t get that on a large tour bus company.
John was excellent and professional in all ways.
Wonderfully handled by our experienced and very knowledgeable guide.
Super day. Super lunch and breakfast. Wonderful guide who really likes his job.
