SO helpful

A great place to get recommendations and information. Plan your day out here when you arrive as there is so much to see and do that it can be overwhelming.

If you have never traveled this great country to see the National Parks, Monuments and treasures, then plan to some day soon; and definitely visit this natural wonder.

Well marked paths, lots of canyon history along the way. The views are beyond description. We hiked from the Bright Angel trailhead to the Canyon View info centre. The park shuttle is a good way to access more remote areas, the drivers are helpful and informative.

Great selection of Grand Canyon souvenirs and helpful friendly staff! Prices were surprisingly reasonable, too! Good quality long sleeved cotton shirt was only $20. Lots of DVD's about the Grand Canyon, wildlife books, and artifacts.

The IMAX movie is very informative and good. The center is helpful in getting an orientation to the whole canyon park area and layout.

Great introduction to the park and rangers available to answer any questions. Clean and spacious, even given the large number of tourists.

Nothing to dislike, Parking is convenient, shuttle buses available if needed. Staff is Phenomenal:) We left a Grand Canyon Membership Thermos at the tower after closing and the volunteer who sold it to us, ran a quarter mile up from the center to bring it to us (after closing time).
