What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon East Rim Drive by Jeep and IMAX Movie

Grand Canyon East Rim Drive by Jeep and IMAX Movie

This Grand Canyon tour begins with a hotel pickup in the town of Tusayan, AZ. Travel to Grand Canyon National Park and stop at the National Geographic Visitor Center’s IMAX Theater to watch the 34-minute film entitled, “Grand Canyon: the Movie,” an entertainment experience unlike any other. Being here, inside the movie, is as good as being there, in the Grand Canyon, on a screen that’s over six stories tall with 12,000 watts of earth-shaking, digital surround sound power.
The featured film is a 34-minute journey over, around and through the Grand Canyon. Explore all 277 miles with the mysterious Anasazi tribe, ancestors of the modern Pueblo Indians, who inhabited the canyon 4,000 years ago, and John Wesley Powell, famous for his exploration of the canyon and the raging Colorado River in 1869. Then fly like an eagle over the rim and swoop into the depths of the canyon, complete with a whitewater rafting trip down the raging Colorado River below.
Following the movie, choose from three different Jeep tours — a daytime adventure and two sunset options. The daytime tour runs from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., providing plenty of scheduling flexibility. The sunset tours are 2- and 3-hour excursions, departing at 5 and 6 p.m. respectively.
On the daytime tour, ride from the East Rim to the South Rim and soak up the scenery at various lookout points, including the Desert View Watchtower, a 70-foot-high stone building that serves as the highest point on the South Rim. On a clear day, see more than 100 miles into the distance. Along the way, learn about the history of the Grand Canyon and the geologic forces that helped to create it. Also, find out about the various people that inhabited and explored the canyon, as far back as 4,000 years ago.
On the sunset tour, enjoy the same style of travel and sightseeing as the daytime tour, with the added bonus of an incredible Grand Canyon sunset to top off the day. Choose from two departure times for a 2- or 3-hour tour, each highlighted by a breathtaking sunset — an exhilarating palette of colors exploding across the canyon's giant rock cliffs. Look on in amazement as the shadows cover the gorges and canyon walls in rich orange, rust and red colors.
The tour ends with a return trip to the town of Tusayan for a hotel drop-off.

Having a guide is what makes the east rim even better. You can get to all these beautiful stops via shuttle or with your own car, but having a tour guide tell you about the history of the area and canyons is what makes this a special experience since my husband and I like to learn. Our guide William was very knowledgeable about how the canyon was formed, what each layer of the rocks were made up of and many other interesting facts. We did the sunset tour, so we stopped at Desert View where the Watchtower is to see it although it was closed on the inside so we couldn't go to the top. You can also see the Colorado River and the start of the grand canyon from this stop. We had a great time. Recommend a jacket or wind breaker as it got pretty chilly and windy once the sun went down.

Though we had explored the Grand Canyon on our own, we wanted to see if a guided tour would provide a different experience and we were thrilled that we made that decision! Our awesome guide Sean was knowledgeable and entertaining and clearly loves his job. The jeep was very comfortable and could accommodate any type of weather. We would do it again if we go back!
