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.

Great experience
The trip was very intense and very beautiful. Already the route to the destinations was very interesting scenically. Our guides Mac and Ray were very attentive, nice and told interesting things. The trip is super for people who do not have so much time. Great experience.

He made sure that the 6 of us in the van were comfortable and he answered all our questions. I would recommend this tour for anyone who likes a small group tour.

Grand Canyon South Rim, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend Day Tour from Las Vegas
What an awesome and packed day, 3 canyons with the best guides and drivers ever! You will learn history and also visit Antelope X, Horseshoe Bend and the Grand Canyon (south rim), all in the same day. The experience with a small group is amazing, even the pit stops are nice and selected in great areas. The best tour i did when i was in Vegas!

Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades
We enjoyed the trip as I travelled with my wife and parents in-laws. I wish we had a more specific schedule of the different stops and a rough time table. It would have been nice to know that we would only have a few hours to spend at the Grand Canyon specific stops. The tour guides/drivers were great and I found the information they provided quite interesting/useful.

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.
