Venture to the remote side of the Grand Canyon with this Grand Canyon tours package. Explore the cultural history of the Grand Canyon and soak in the glorious views of the East Rim unseen by many Grand Canyon tours.
Our Grand Canyon tours maximize your views of the East Rim without the hassle of waiting for a tour bus. You’ll board one of Pink Jeep Tours’ famous open-air Jeeps. Feel the natural wind of the Grand Canyon brush against your skin. Your chauffeur is also your personal tour guide who will share key facts on the history, wildlife and this magnificent landscape not found in the national park’s brochures.
At the beginning of our Grand Canyon tours, your Pink Jeep Wrangler takes you further along the East Rim on Desert View Drive, past the last park shuttle bus stop. You have a front-row seat to twenty-five miles of astounding views of the Grand Canyon. During this drive, your professional tour guide narrates the cultural past of the Native American Hopi tribe who made their home at the Grand Canyon many years ago.
Navajo Point is next. Our Grand Canyon tour lookout point offers a choice angle of the Colorado River’s ‘big bend’ area. For even more exclusive views, schedule your tour in the morning to watch the colorful changing patterns on the western cliffs as the sun rises above the canyon. At almost 7,500 feet, Navajo Point is the highest natural spot on the East Rim. You can even see 2,000 feet down the Escalante and Cardenas Buttes, Tanner Canyon and several miles of the Tanner Trail running alongside these buttes.
Next stop is Lipan Point, 80 feet higher in elevation. You can still see the tips of the pine trees thriving along the East Rim. At Lipan Point, you can see below the Seventyfive Mile Creek and its tributaries running beneath a thin ridge connected to Escalante Butte and joining the Colorado River. Downstream of Hance Rapids, you can also see the beginning of the inner canyon gorge where the Colorado River first cuts into the prehistoric Vishnu Schist.
Time to hop out at the Desert View Watchtower. This 70-foot high stone building, also known as the Indian Watchtower at Desert View, looks similar to other structures along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. That’s because the Fred Harvey Company, builder of this watchtower in 1932, also designed Hermit’s Rest and Lookout Studio. It was designed to appear much older than its true age as homage to an Ancient Pueblo Peoples watchtower. So step inside and admire the lively murals inside painted by celebrated Hopi artist Fred Kabotie. After an 85-step climb, get out your cameras for this 360-degree view. You can even see the panorama of the Painted Desert’s flat plains through the windows of this National Historic Landmark.
Moran Point is the perfect place to gaze into the Grand Canyon. If you prefer evening Grand Canyon tours, Moran Point is the best spot along the East Rim to watch the colors of the setting sun dance upon the Grand Canyon cliffs. Watch the whirling waters of the Hakatai Rapids below and try to spot the Sinking Ship. What’s that? Your tour guide has that answer.
Please Note: The stops and the order of stops is different for each tour guide.
I wanted to see the best viewing spots of the Grand Canyon, which the tour provided. I had never been to the Grand Canyon before, and I was hoping we would also get down into the Grand Canyon. I now understand why that is not practical on a tour such as this. I hope to return someday and get down into the canyon. The tour provided not only great viewing of the canyon but also its history, geology and folklore. It was a wonderful experience.

I am so glad we took this tour. We never would have learned as much about the Grand Canyon on our own. Abel was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and engaging. He was able to answer every question we asked him, and he showed a deep appreciation for the land. I would recommend Pink Jeep Tours to anyone visiting the Grand Canyon. It was an amazing experience.

Sam was awesome!! He told us so many stories and was very enthusiastic. He also helped us find a hike that was just right for us and not a popular spot so we could enjoy it without a crowd, told us where best to see the sunset, and some other nearby destinations. He was just great and I would definitely recommend the tour and him to friends.

Sam was awesome. We were hesitant taking a tour because it might be "commercialized" and not friendly. But he was awesome and accommodating. He also took amazing pictures of my family. He even suggested when we should when didn't think about it. Well worth the money. If you are here you should do the tour. Ask for Sam!

Excellent, good value and Sam was a great tour guide!
Rob, 17 Apr 2017
The tour exceeded our expectations. It was an efficient way to see so many great views of the canyon while learning about its history and the surrounding area. It was the perfect way to keep my family of 5 engaged and helped give us perspective for our hike into the canyon the next day. I would definitely recommend the tour!

Lots of fun. We went on a really crowded day but our guide kept us away from the hoards of people. We saw 3 times more than what we'd have found on our own.

Lucy I would imagine is the most popular guide, she's a free spirit very educational and I think made everyone feel very comfortable by sounding very genuine when asking about each and every one of us where we came from etc. My kids really enjoyed her . Me to thanks.
