What to expect

This self-guided driving tour takes you to all the best vistas, hikes, and attractions along Grand Canyon’s South Rim and tells you the secret history behind this famous landscape. Discover all the hidden scenic walks along the South Rim Trail, catch a sunset at Mather Point, and much more. Before your arrival in this picturesque area, make sure to download the app that will function as your guide, narrator, and map all in one. Next, proceed into the park and start with hearing the early history of this location. Your first stop will be at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, where you’ll find Mather Point, your first good look at the canyon.
From there, you can proceed to Yavapai Point and the Yavapai Geology Museum, where you’ll get insider knowledge on the canyon’s complex geology and how these layers of rock help us see back in time millions of years. You'll also get to walk along the South Rim Trail! There's a reason this trail is the most popular spot in the park: the views it offers are unbeatable. As you walk, dive into the peculiar construction of the Hopi House, the enigmatic architect who built it, and the heated feud between galleries along the rim. Finally, you’ll arrive at the impressive, medieval-looking Desert View Watchtower, offering more spectacular views and snacks to purchase. The tour concludes here, having taken you through the entire park.
