Our Grand Canyon tour is a great introduction to the South Rim as well as the perfect tour package for returning visitors wanting views of magnificent vistas unreachable by the shuttle bus. Encounter the legends, history, wildlife and dramatic geology of the Grand Canyon landscape along your drive as you visit several lookout points. Maximize your Grand Canyon tour of the South Rim without the headache of waiting for the shuttle bus to arrive. Climb aboard one of Pink Jeep Tours’ famous open-air Jeeps for your South Rim adventure. No windows separate you from this beauty, so let your five senses explore the Grand Canyon as you drive down Desert View Drive.
Your driver is also your personal tour guide brimming with facts about the landscape, history, culture and ecology of the Grand Canyon to complement what’s already printed in the national park’s brochures. Bring your toughest questions and our guides will provide the most insightful answers. Drive for miles along Desert View Drive, past the last shuttle stop, for your final Grand Canyon tour destination: Grandview Point. This lookout point was a prime spot for tourists over a century ago. In fact, a well-visited hotel once stood here. Today, this remote lookout is only available by private vehicle.
It’s hard not to notice the dense vegetation of pinyon pine, ponderosa pine and oak surrounding you. Can’t get the right camera shot? Take a short walk down the Grandview Trail. Here you’ll find amazing views of the canyon as well as Cottonwood Creek and Grapevine Creek. But don’t go too far. Grandview Trail is one of the toughest trails along the South Rim and proper hiking equipment is a must to go beyond this point.
Your Grand Canyon tour also includes your ticket to the IMAX movie, “Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets.” Watch surreal, high-definition images of the Grand Canyon from the rim to the Colorado River and the canyon floor. This film explores the human history of this natural wonder from the earliest native civilizations to the expedition of John Wesley Powell.
We all talked about how much more we got out of the day because we were with Pink Jeep and Lucy. We could have gone alone but would have totally missed all the great "stuff" that our tour guide pointed out.

Great tour! Lucy gave us great information on the tour and also gave us info on what to do the rest of our stay. Loved having a "personal" photographer for our family shots!

Tour was fantastic and breathtaking but what blew us away was the tour guide--Lucy was simply engaging and most of all, caring. We'll take away memories of the tour with Lucy at the center.

Just rught. Picked up within minutes of our scheduled time and had a great day visiting the Grand Canyon. It was nice having someone who know the area guide us through the trip. Vehicle was comfortable and safe. Our guide took amazing pictures of my family and had a great attention to detail. He promised us he would find Elk and he did :) Thanks Stephen Sarysz!!!

Sam was sweet and very conscientious. He used his many skills to make sure we kept moving and explained a lot about the sites. I would recommend this tour just for him.

I had a truly great time. Frank was very educational and talkative. I was imspired by his passion for the park and nature and he answered every question I had. Based on his stories and experiences he has had that he shared, I will come back to the Grand Canyon
