I went here expecting to see beautiful National Geographic photos everywhere, but that's not the case... Just a meeting spot for tours with a nice gift shop and an Imax show.

Not well indicated from the road. Drove from California to see the Canyon for the first time and they were closed by the time we got there, much earlier than stated online. Called and got a very long machine but no real information. Needless to say, we're very disappointed.
