Fantastic ... south rim easy drive with lot of viewing points. If arriving at grande village there are 3 shuttle buses that can take you to other view points. Note that you cannot buy water there but refill is available near the restrooms.

So worth the five hour drive from Vegas. One of those places that will stay in your memory for a lifetime.

You can tour on your own. But the hotel reception desk may be able to help with a local company
