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.

Flexible & great for the whole family

We went on a large family trip, with ages ranging from 70 down to 7. It’s rare that one tour can engage all of those people but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the stories. The narrator’s voice is soothing & entertaining at once — made for a fun trip. Easy to use and follow along. Could stop anytime. Highly recommend.

Developer Response ,

That’s so great to hear! Thank you so much — we put in a lot of work to make sure our stories are interesting for everyone, kids and grandparents included. So thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the voice! Thanks again!

Nice way to see the canyon

We had seen this many years ago but this technology is new. It felt like we really were involved with the canyon and saw all the Must See points. It gave us a map to follow and based on geo circle, the stories kept coming. A nice idea!

Developer Response ,

Great! Thank you so much! So thrilled we could bring another layer of knowledge to your return trip to this fantastic canyon. There are so many great stories to tell. If you plan to take more self-guided tours in future travels, I hope you consider our other tours too. Thank you!

Great Tour Guide

The tour was full of fun stories and interesting facts! I downloaded everything in advance, so I didn’t have to deal with cell service issues.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your review! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour. Definitely a great idea to download ahead of time! We have similar self-guided tours all over the country including other national parks - hopefully, you consider one of these for a future trip. Thanks again!
