Grand Canyon tour with Pink Adventure Tours

There’s a scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation where Chevy Chase brings his family to the Grand Canyon. They all pile out of the family station wagon. They stand looking over the canyon for a moment, and then they’re herded back into the car. When you stop at Grand Canyon National Park without a guide, it’s easy to fall into this trap and not experience everything the park has to offer.

When you board one of Pink Adventure Tours’ signature pink Jeep Wranglers, you’ll soak up more information than you thought possible on your Grand Canyon tour. Pink’s tour guides eat, sleep and breathe the Grand Canyon. Many of them have spent their lives exploring its depths, guiding visitors around it and when they’re not physically there, they’re reading about it. They can’t get enough.

Take David Spies, a Pink Adventure Tours guide who is an avid hiker and climber and spends all his spare time backpacking through the canyon or climbing its spectacular walls. When you take a tour with Pink’s guides, you’ll be seeing the canyon through their eyes. You’ll learn about ecology, history, geology, current events and more as you ride open-air. In the summer you’ll feel a cool breeze (the park’s rim sits at 7,000 feet) on your face and smell the ponderosa pines. In colder months, heated seats and a panoramic roof ensure you’ll stay cozy while not missing out on any views.

There’s a tour for everyone at Pink Adventure Tours. If you’re short on time and just want a primer, book the Grand Entrance Tour departing from Tusayan, Ariz., which is a two-hour insider tour of the best of the South Rim. Pro tip? Book the sunset tour to see the canyon at its most glorious.

For those looking for more adventure, the Hermits Rest Sunset Tour takes you below the rim. A scenic drive to Hermits Rest is followed by a 1-mile round-trip hike into the canyon, so you can really get a taste of what the interior of Grand Canyon National Park is like.

Staying in Sedona or Las Vegas? Pink Adventure Tours also departs out of these cities, with full-day options in comfortable custom tour vehicles with leather captain chairs. These tours explore the South Rim, the North Rim and Grand Canyon West managed by the Hualapai Nation, depending on the trip. Some Grand Canyon West excursions even involve venturing out onto the Grand Canyon Skywalk, helicopter rides and river rafting.
