Arrived during a May snowstorm, it was still beautiful, My first time to visit....was totally awesome..almost didn't get to see it..our friends in Washington were threatening to close it because of budget battles.

Lots of choices in dinning and lodging. Book early and I would not go in the summer if it can be avoided. Too hot, crowded, and the views are not great.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is absolutely spectacular. A must-see for everyone. This review is more about the actual tour company. Cost was $79 USD, hotel pick-up at 7am drop-off at 9:30pm - long, but worth the time. The bus was in good...More

Incredible views of the wonderful and really, really grand canyon. You can spend days looking at the view. A lot of tourists and at times a bit crowded, though. So as always it is good to get up early. For more than just a view...More

I visited the Grand Canyon on May 7, 2017. It was a bit chilly that day and I had just hiked through Zion Park the day before so my visit didn't include any intense touring. This was a spur of the moment idea to visit...More

I have grown up in Utah and never made the day's drive to see the Grand Canyon until now. My cousin lives in Southern Utah and we decided that I needed to finally see it. It did not disappoint! When we pulled into our first...More

It's something once in a lifetime. Better to go there for 3 days 2 nights to experience South Rim from East to West and also have time to go down the trail. Don't forget: book everything beforehand (camping, lodging, hiking tours...), bring hat, sunscreen, water,...More

Came in on the east entrance and exited on south, spectacular views. Be sure to stop at all the points of interest as each one tells a different story. The best views of the river are right at the east side entrance view point.

This is one of those 'must do' places which was on our list of stop offs during an extended road trip. It exceeded expectations. Plenty of beautiful scenery, walks and weather, with excellent view points, photo opportunities etc. The shuttle system along the south rim...More

Unfortunately we had overcast skies during our visit so we didn't see the stars however just step outside and turn the lights off and I'm sure you will get a good star view. best regards

Tusayan is the closest
Hi we are staying in Tusayan at best western and will go into park on the purple shuttle but on our second day we intend to get up early and drive into park to do the desert view road and continue out of park to flagstaff via Cameron, how does that work with the permit/entrance fee? Do we buy the $30 car pass will this allow us to both (2 adults) use the purple shuttle bus the day before? I know it's valid 7 days.
