South Rim Tours

Enjoy the beauty of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Below, you'll find Grand Canyon South Rim tours that offer an ideal way to experience this wonder of the world including tours by airplane, helicopter, ground or railroad. Tours are available from Las Vegas, Sedona, Phoenix, Flagstaff and Williams.

Five million people visit the South Rim each year. The South Rim, which is the hub of the National Park, is where you'll find several visitor centers, museums, hiking trailheads, viewpoints and park lodges.

The South Rim is a pleasant 4 hour drive due north of Phoenix. Most people drive themselves and spend the day walking along the Rim Trail, snapping photos from overlooks and checking out the visitor centers. A day trip itinerary from Phoenix, whether self-guided or on a professional ground tour, takes about 16 hours.

While there are a few helicopter tours from Las Vegas and Phoenix to the South Rim, it's more likely you'll find full-day ground tours from Sedona, Flagstaff or Phoenix. Also predominant are helicopter/ground combination tours, starting from Las Vegas. Of course, a significant portion of visitors drive themselves to rim-adjacent towns like Williams or Tusayan, and then take a railroad or helicopter tour of the South Rim.
