We parked our RV and walked down the trial----stunning views and you really get the feeling of the size of the canyon. Later we did enjoy a pancake breakfast with view. Overall strongly recommended to walk and get away from the crowd.

Great views of the canyon from various locations along the rim trail at Grand View Point. Worth Visiting this location on the rim

The view from the Grandview Point is so overwhelming and breathtaking. Just realised how small we are.

In addition to trails, there are lookout points... Each one of them gives a slightly different perspective on the canyon... I believe that one of key points of visiting the Grand Canyon is to reserve time to stop at as many lookout points as possible,...More

It is hard to describe the beauty of this natural wonder of the world. But all of the view points along the South East Portion of the Grand Canyon have been fantastic. One cannot just pick one locations. You need to see them all

What can you say about such a magnificent place. The shadows on the canyon walls. Pictures do it no justice. The South Rim is well worth the trip, don't miss it if you're in the area.

Like all the stops along the south rim Grandview Point has spectacular views. And “The Duck” is great. Recommend you take pano shots at each stop.

This stop on the eastern side of the South Rim is a wonderful spot to take a panoramic photograph It is also a great spot at sunset

Another stop on the South Rim. Every stop gives different angles and perspectives of the Grand Canyon. I would recommend stopping at all of them - even if it is just for 5 minutes to get the full scale of the natural wonder.

Hi Rhonda, you dont need a guided tour, and therefore dont need to pay for one. It is easy to find for yourself. There is however an entrance fee for the area, enjoy...
