The most developed area of Grand Canyon National Park, the South Rim offers amenities such as bus service, hotels and water stations, but is also more crowded than the North Rim. Scenic highlights include Pipe Creek Vista and Yavapai Point.
We booked a tour of the Grand Canyon thru great Venture Tours, Inc but my receipt was from Ma & Pa Tours, Inc. Ty was our driver. He was almost 15 minutes late picking us up because he went to the wrong location. I could...More
Take the time to ride the free buses from stop to stop. Walk a BUNCH!! Explore. We kept saying, "It can't get any more beautiful!" IT DOES!!
This is certainly a bucket list item. Do it before you die. You will be glad you did.
Took sit me friends who have never been. Decided to go in the East entrance . Glad we did. We avoided lots of traffic and came to the tower. Great views then a few more overlooks before the visitors center. Hop on the bus and...More
We were at the Grand Canyon South Rim on July 4 and 5. Maybe because we prepared for the worst, the crowds didn't seem as bad as we thought. We did a lot early in the morning though or late afternoon / early evening. Watching...More

The Grand Canyon is a natural phenomenon of unbelievable proportions. No words or pictures can describe the sheer dimensions of it nor the impression it leaves on you. Don’t just take the buses and get off at the various view points but make sure to...More

Get a feel for the traffic going into the park. There was major road construction in the village area which I understand just about done except for finishing work but work now being done to the highway on Desert View. Parking inside the park could be challenging this time of year, as previously mentioned a car does offer you more flexibility to go to places the shuttle system does not go to. The Desert View Watchtower is a must see and is about 30 min. away from the main GC village with road construction. If you decide to go with your car you should try to leave EARLY. Catch a sunrise or begin a below rim hike which is best to do early before the crowds or heat descend on you. I would study the national park services.gov web site for more detailed instructions, maps, trails, visitor information etc. Once you are IN the park you will be using their free shuttle system, you won't be allowed to drive your car to the more popular areas. Highly recommend studying the parks web site so you can avoid back tracking and losing a lot of time. The shuttles will be very busy and more packed as the day goes on.

It's $35 per car, $30 per motorcycle. If you're walking or biking in or riding a shuttle bus in, it's $20 per person. The pass is good for a week. Once in, parking is free and the shuttle buses re free. Several places to eat... More

Well there’s everything you would need from gas station to lodging place etc. You should be able to find pretty much any type of visitor services that you would want at the Grand Canyon's south rim, from restaurants and gift shops, to basic automotive services and a variety of grocery options and more all within the general area. Many Grand Canyon Lodging South Rim options are close by these services and stores.
