    The Hermit Trail near Hermit's Rest in Tusayan, Arizona, offers a breathtaking and adventurous hiking experience. With stunning panoramic views of the Grand Canyon, challenging terrain, and a sense of solitude, it's a must-visit trail for outdoor enthusiasts. Exercise caution and come prepared for a remarkable adventure.

    Overall, it was a good presentation and very educational. My only negative feedback was that the visuals seemed to be somewhat blurry and I'm not sure if it was because of the fast panning that the camera did or something else. And while the volume was loud, it didn't seem as intense as I was expecting (loud boomy bass, etc.). The theatre itself was comfortable and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The complimentary granola bar was a nice added touch.

    We booked an hour trail ride. This is conveniently located at the entrance to the Grand Canyon which was ideal for us because we wanted to do some hiking in the Grand Canyon after the ride. The ride takes you into the Kaibab National forest but note that you won't actually see or go into the Grand Canyon National Park.

    The horses were well behaved even for our 12 year old. The guides were professional and engaging. The kids were so excited and will always remember this ride.

    We did a private tour with Coleen just my grandson and I. We visited Yavapi Point, Grandview Point, Moran Point and Lipan Point.
    If you want to know about the Grand Canyon get Coleen to take you. She is very knowledgeable. We were able to take our two dogs with us, since it was a private tour and when needed Coleen helped hold the dogs while we took pictures, helped us out of Jeep with dogs and was so helpful. We really enjoyed the Trip. She didn't just take you to the points to look, she told you about this stop in detal and took you off the beaten path that you would not know to go to on your own. My grandson got some awesome pictures!
    Thank you for making this stop on our trip very memorable.

    I got a microwave dinner and a microwave burrito for $10. Was ok. Everything is pricey near the Grand Canyon.

    Of all the options we had to tour the Grand Canyon, I am so thankful we went with Pink Jeep Tours. We were picked up at our Sedona, AZ resort; we picked up two other couples and then took the scenic tour to the Grand Canyon. Our tour guide, Rick Honsinger, was simply amazing.
    He was incredibly knowledgeable of the entire area of the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, and Sedona. He always looked after our safety while guiding us to seek out the canyon's beauty. Our lunch was included from Soundbites restaurant, which was excellent.
    You could ask Rick anything, and he knew the answer. He ignited a new passion for the history of the area for us. Rick taught us as much about the canyon's botany, geology, and wildlife as he taught us the history of the Grand Canyon.
    It was our first visit, but it will not be our last, and we will tour with Pink Jeep tours again. Worth every penny and then some.

    I experienced the Grand Canyon many years ago so it was time to experience it again with my family. We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the airport. It was a short drive but gave us a chance to see the surrounding area. The flight was uneventful thankfully, it was about 30 minutes to the canyon but enabled us to see Lake Mead and the dam. The flight over the canyon was about 45 minutes. One side had the view going and the other on the way back. It was quite amazing but it was difficult to gauge the depth. Steven our pilot was excellent adding information to the pre recorded info.
    It was not the least expensive activity we did but well worth the trip.
    If you can make sure you are not in the second row from the front or all your photos will have the wing support in them.
    If you can make time for something different.

    We had a wonderful time! Matt Bloomfield is an excellent guide and all around good guy. It was a pleasure getting to know him, and he made the trip for my son and me! He embodied service with a smile!

    BUY THE STUPID INSURANCE....

    We came in and met the manager, gave lots of money to run 4hrs the next morning. All went very well, great experience.... until it wasn't.

    We returned after just over 3 hours. We are both 48yrs old and had our fun. We left the vehicle with the very nice and helpful manager.

    THAT NIGHT... emailed the was damage.
    NEXT DAY....I drive up the next morning to ask to see the damages. Amanda was barely engaging me. I wasn't mad, nor demanding, I just wanted to see the alleged damages. I have the legal right to face my accuser.... RIGHT?
    She would hardly look at me. Called another team member to see if there's any photos... and then this COWBOY shows up. Had a firm but misunderstood approach. I just want to see these damages and old fart and his woman could possibly cause....

    THE ANSWER: Thevehicle was already in use. I had a nail in the tire. So here's my additional $500.

    MY BELIEF: Business is low and making money in any manner is accepted.

    MY LESSON: No matter how effing nice, never leave a returned rental without being there to watch the ALLEGED inspections.
