Grand Canyon South Rim

Highway 64, Arizona

The Basics

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon averages 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) above sea level, with natural wonders including Navajo Point, Hermit Road, and the Abyss. Grand Canyon Village is home to a variety of historic buildings, while other popular stops include the Grand Canyon Railway Depot, the Bright Angel Lodge, Kolb Studio, and the Desert View Watchtower, which features work by Hopi artists and incorporates Native American art and design.

Choosing a group bus tour, helicopter tour, air tour, or a self-drive tour makes the South Rim conveniently accessible from Las Vegas. Tours also leave from Sedona and Phoenix, and some combine the trip with a visit to the West Rim, the North Rim, or the Hoover Dam. A Grand Canyon helicopter tour is undoubtedly the fastest and most dramatic way to visit the canyon from Vegas.

Grand Canyon National Park, Antelope Canyon & Horseshoe Bend, Day Trip Las Vegas
Excellent tour that’s worth every penny. Small group of 5 highly recommended especially with COVID still around. We covered a lot of places in 17 hours. Tomo, our tour guide, and partner were very accommodating, and took care of us throughout the trip from food to chargers to taking our family pictures! Their tour operator also kept us updated about our tour, and very easy to contact. Highly recommended!
Highly enjoyable tour

3-Day Grand Canyon South Rim, Zion & Bryce Canyon 11 Locations From Las Vegas
We have had a wonderful time in joining this three day tour. The tour guides were highly attentive, polite, and helpful. The sightseeing activities were eye-opening, fun, and educational. All the activities have been well arranged, tight-fitted without rushing. All tickets were purchased by the tour guides in advance. We did not lose any waiting time. Lodgings were clean and comfortable. The vehicles were clean and safe. Highly recommend.
Great experience and amazing views

Grand Canyon Day Tour with Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon
Zane was a great tour guide and was knowledgeable about AZ and the canyon. The views were awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed hiking part of the way down the canyon. Our guide had safety tips and did not lose anyone on the tour. We made plenty of bathroom and rest breaks which was greatly appreciated. Would recommend this tour and experience to others.

Spectacular views of Canyon with accompanying music and commentary. Very safety conscious. Only spoilt by high winds which meant the trip was limited to 20 mins

Grand Canyon National Park South Rim Bus Tour from Las Vegas
Operator was Grand Canyon Destinations and our guide for the day was Brandon. Covid-19 measures were actually carried out which I found quite professional. On board commentary and information throughout day was good and well communicated. Plenty of time at destination to explore, take pictures, visit souvenir outlets and grab a coffee etc. before return journey. Stops en route there and back also good.
Highly recommend!

Grand Canyon National Park, Hoover Dam and Route 66 Tour From Las Vegas
Highly recommend this tour! We travelled as a family of 4 on 4/4/22 to Hoover Dam, Route 66 and the Grand Canyon south rim. Claudiu was our guide. He was very friendly, punctual, and knowledgable. He took family photos for us and was always helpful if we had questions or needed anything. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip - it was absolutely worth it, not having to go through the hassle of renting a car and doing all of the driving ourselves.

Grand Canyon National Park South Rim Bus Tour from Las Vegas
We toured the Grand Canyon South Rim in Feb 2022. The weather was perfect. The driver and tour guide (sorry don't remember their names now) were friendly and wonderful and they made our trip comfortable. Lunch was bagged turkey sandwich (our choice) with a bag of chips. It was more than enough for us. During the trip we were offered snacks and unlimited bottled water. Our tour guide was full of energy and kept us entertained throughout our trip. Over all it was a great experience.
The best experience ever!😊

3 Hour Off-Road Sunset Safari to Grand Canyon with Entrance Gate Detour
Our tour guide Sheila was the best I could have hoped for. She was very personable, knowledgeable and had the safety of everyone as top priority. She also helped us “document” our visit by taking pics of us for our memories. It was a chance of a lifetime for us. Being 67 & 73 years young, and I (67) have mobility issues, couldn’t have had a better time! Thank you Shelia for helping us make memories we will cherish forever!💕
Highly recommended. Great scenery.

Small-Group Grand Canyon Complete Tour from Sedona or Flagstaff
The tour guide was very insightful and helpful. The van was clean and comfortable. The scenery was absolutely fantastic, of course. The only downside was the food at the Indian Trading post in Cameron - it was a bit disappointing. But other than that, the experience was excellent.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Canyon View Visitor Center, near the south entrance, stocks maps, books, and videos, while the Cameron Trading Post, outside the east entrance to the park, boasts a selection of souvenirs and supplies.

  • Stop by the Hopi House Gift Store and Art Gallery to see art and crafts from the local tribes.

  • If driving, be sure you have plenty of gas in your car before setting out for the canyon; there are few service stations in this remote part of Arizona.
