“So Scenic!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

You can't go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon without taking the East Rim Drive. I would suggest turning off at each available exit on this drive because he one provides different views that will be excellent photo opportunities. If you don't stop it will likely take about 30 minutes but it is worth stopping at all of the turn-offs to see all of the amazing views (which would then be almost 2 hours). This is a must see!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We did this for the first time this time and were so amazed. Every parking place gives you new perspectives and it always looks different. We loved it and got lost in gazing at all the wonderful formations.

“Great views!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Provides excellent views of the canyon from great vantage points along the rim. There are plenty of pull-ins for parking while you take photos.

Great & best views, fewer people. Short drive from the main areas. Very different than the Bright Angel area views. Good cell service too !

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

You must see all of the rim when you visit the Grand Canyon. Walk it or take the shuttle, but do it!!!
