About this app

Welcome to the narrated driving tour of the Grand Canyon by Action Tour Guide!

Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn tour.

The Grand Canyon’s South Rim:
Experience the staggering beauty of one of the natural wonders of the world. You’ve seen the Grand Canyon in pictures, but nothing compares to seeing it in person. The fiery shades of layer upon layer of rock, the rushing Colorado River, the world-famous hiking trails... There’s just nothing on earth like it.

Explore the canyon’s southern rim in your car and via the park’s free shuttle (don’t worry, we’ll help you navigate the shuttle system!). Take in astonishing vistas, visit all the best hikes in the park, and watch a sunset like you’ve never seen before.

Plus, get to know the fascinating history of the canyon, from the traditions and legends of the earliest Hopi inhabitants to the explorers who first charted this magnificent landscape. This self-guided tour offers a complete portrait of one of America’s most unbeatable landscapes.

The tour was informative and fantastic. Stories are great. Perfect for a first time visitor(me) and a returning visitor (my passenger).Works seamlessly over the phone — but only audio plays over the car speakers (images don't show up on CarPlay).This is the only change I would request but not such a big deal that I would deduct a star. Overall very pleased.

Thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour. The Grand Canyon is such a fantastic destination! CarPlay currently won’t display both a map and images - frustrating, but we hope they update their policy soon! Thanks again!
