All tours leave from Sedona and take anywhere between 2 and 11 hours, depending on what you want to see. These jeeps are the Wrangler kind, meaning they’re open to the elements. The top is covered to keep the sun off. They’re also extremely comfortable and unexpectedly spacious, with leather captains chairs to lounge in. (Don’t forget your seat belt!)
The Grand Canyon tour is great, but it literally takes all day. It’s 11 hours and includes lunch and pick-up and drop-off at your hotel. You’ll drive from Sedona, through Flagstaff, and up to the South Rim. You’ll have both a visual tour on the jeep’s DVD player and a wonderful tour guide-narrated tour. You’ll learn about the vegetation, breeds of animals, and the Colorado River’s history. Bring plenty of film, cuz you’ll need it for all the great vantage points you’ll have. Lunch at the El Tovar Hotel is wonderful and plentiful. You won’t leave hungry.
Pink Jeep Tours provides cold drinking water while the jeep is stopped, but I suggest bringing a bottle of water to drink while the jeep is in motion, along with a few snacks, just in case: it IS a long day. (By snacks, I mean nuts or granola bars, because food really isn’t allowed in the jeeps.) Bathroom facilities are far and few between, so don’t drink 8 gallons of water before you leave. I also suggest dressing very comfortably and wearing hiking boots, as there is a small amount of walking involved on any given tour. You’ll be much happier and safer than if you wore sneakers. Bring a hat, and don’t forget your sunglasses and sunscreen. A light jacket that you can tie around your waist is always a good idea. Depending on the time of year, it might be a chilly drive back without one.
Tours start on the hour, and there are bathroom facilities at the launch site as well as a coffee shop. There is a small gift shop, but as I’m sure you can guess that water and film are expensive there. There’s a Walgreen’s down the street for that kind of stuff.
The tour guides are all very informative and fun to have around. I don’t think it’s possible to stump them. The best part is getting away from all the other tourists and getting to go off the major roads and highways, so it’s just you and the wilderness. On the way back from the Grand Canyon, you make a stop at the Cameron Trading Post for souvenirs and a snack, a nice end to a terrific day!

There is a stop on the tour on top of a rock formation to stretch your legs, have a drink of water, and get some great pictures. The overall tour lasted about 90 minutes. If you see one of the Pink Jeep brochures, you will see a picture of a jeep coming down from a rock formation at a 45 degree angle. You will experience the pictured situation on the Broken Arrow tour.

We haven't gone on any of the other tours offered by Pink Jeep, but if we get a chance, we will definitely choose this company again. Pink Jeep also has a Las Vegas tours outlet. Visit them at pinkjeeptours.com.

We start off with another couple and our driver. We head out on the main highway. Its not long before we make the turn onto "The Road of No Return" that begins our Broken Arrow tour. As we ride along this dirt path we are all thinking, well this isn’t bad. When all of a sudden our eyes open wide as our driver pulls to the edge of this flat rock and says "hang on". Next thing we know we’re leaning into our seat belts and looking straight down as we go over the side of that rock. Wow, it was great. Now we’re back on that dirt path passing through magnificent canyon walls. The calm part doesn’t last long before we’re bouncing down a natural staircase at a 45-degree angle.
Finally we get a chance to climb out and make sure we’re in one piece. Our driver has stopped on a huge rock formation that gives you a bird’s-eye view of the area. We get to look around while he gives us some background info on the area, geology and the various rock formations we can see. Then, before we all climb back in he takes our picture so we have something else to remember our day with.
Before we know it our fun-filled four-wheeling jeep tour is over. It’s been everything we expected and more. A mild bouncy ride, up and down through creek beds and taking it to the extreme of going down the side of boulders or up the side of very, very steep hills. The excitement of dropping off the side of that rock and the bouncing down the staircase. Best of all, we got to go to places we never imagined existed.
No matter which tour you take sit back but hang on and enjoy every minute of it. Gee, I wonder if our Jeep Wrangler back home can do some of these stunts?

We purchased our tickets and were lucky enough to leave within 20 minutes of our purchase. We had plenty of water to drink and all had our hats on to keep the blazing sun from hitting our heads.
Off we go...down a road, OK, this isn't too bad...now we come to a dirt road and can see one of the red rocks in a distance. We can't be turning here, can we? Sure enough, off the main road we go and onto the dirt road. The driver began telling us about the different plants, flowers, snakes, and wild animals that live in this area...am I really up for this? So far, it's not too bad. The road is a little bumpy, but we can handle it. Then we begin to climb, and climb, and climb. When we arrive at the top of the "rock," we experience the most magnificent 360-degree view that we have ever seen. Unless you have been there, it is hard to describe.
Thinking that our thrill is over, our jeep guide then takes us to a "black hole" and stops the jeep. She takes pictures of all of us and then takes us closer to the edge of a very long drop and takes more photos of us. Back into the jeep again and we go up another incline, this time we go around in circles and the decline is about 180 degrees in the jeep.
After this thrilling experience, we begin our journey down the red rock to the bottom and back to the Pink Jeep starting point.
If you take the time to go to Sedona, a Pink Jeep Tour should be on the top of your list!

Our guide was fearless as she cheerfully plummeted over vertiginous edges, slowly bumping us down natural staircases at 45 degree angles while providing a commentary the entire time.
All in all a great experience, even if the jeep was pink!
