Amazing Grand Canyon! The rock formations are unimaginable !! It was very windy and very cold !! We drove around to see the scenic views from different places . Did not need guide to pay for the tour.

Informative and enjoyed the free movie. Stop here for free maps and nice views of the Grand Canyon. Perfect for a sunset visit.

The ranger stationed here was very helpful and well informed. We found the movie spectacular, and there were views we had never seen before.

Just another visitor centre with the usual shop, cafe, toilets, etc but they had a good bar and it was nice to meet some of the locals - they seemed impressed that a woman wanted a proper pint of beer! Good atmosphere.

You can learn as little or as much as you want here. You get given everything you need on entering the park, which was pretty much what I'd printed out of the internet and brought with me. My advice is to spend time enjoying the scenery, for me it was a once in a life time experience and I'm so... More

I knew a little about which trails we wanted to hike, and a little about getting around, but it turned out I knew NOTHING about how to actually do it.
